I am arriving JFK Terminal 5 on TAP airlines from Portugal, and have a 2 hour window to catch a Jet Blue flight also from Terminal 5. Is two hours enough?
If both flights are on the same reservation that should be enough time. If it's two separate reservations and you have checked bags that will be difficult.
Arrive at 9pm on Jetblue (Terminal 5). Depart at 9am (next day) on Cathay Pacific (Terminal 8). I have lounge access and am considering sleeping in the airport. The primary reason would be to not have to go through TSA security again the next morning, however it looks like I cannot stay inside security and go to Terminal 8. If I have to go through security again anyway, I guess I should just exit and get a hotel. Options?
Yes, you will have to go through security again anyway in the morning and also the lounges aren't open all night.
Thank you very much. I'll book a hotel.
I arrive on Alaska Air from Seattle terminal 8 at 6:00 am and have a connecting flight on Delta terminal 2 at 7:00. Is there a way to go from one terminal to another without going through security again?
No there is not, T8 is not connected to any other terminals inside security. This is a very difficult connection, bordering on impossible.
I'll be arriving JFK on 9/21, connecting to Indianapolis. Will go through customs @jfk or Indy?
Where are you flying into JFK from? What airlines are you flying?
Iff I have a flight from Las Vegas ( LAS) with Delta ( terminal 3) arrival 21.43 and my flight to Amsterdam AMS with KLM is leaving 22.40 ( terminal 4) is there time enough and is the bagage labeled to AMS
JFK does not have a Terminal 3. You will arrive in Terminal 2 or 4 and depart from 4. If both tickets are on the same reservation your bags will be tagged to AMS. If you arrive in Terminal 2, Delta runs a shuttle bus inside security to Terminal 4. You should have enough time.
Thank you very much
MY FLIGHT ARIVES AT JFK TER.5 FROM LAX AT 8PM AND MY CONNETOR FLIGHT LEAVES TER.4 TO MANCHESTER AT 10PM IS THERE GOING TO BE ENOUGH TIME?
What airlines are you flying? Do you have checked bags?
Flight arriving from DC to JFK , going to Boston with a 42 min layover at JFK. Both delta flights, is the time enough?
Yes, that is enough time if the flight from DC is on-time.
I arrive on Virgin Atlantic from LHr into JFK at 1150 my connecting flight departs on Delta at 1340 is that enough connection time
That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Hi, I will be landing at jfk from air India at 7.30 am (terminal 4) and need to catch a flight to Toronto (from terminal 8) at 11.10 am departure. Is this time sufucient considering both arrival and departure immigration, terminal travel time and check in baggage.
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
i will be arriving on american airlines T8 and need to get to Egypt air T4. what is the best way and how long could it take?
The only way is the AirTrain. You need at least 3 hours between flights.
