I have a knee defect and cannot walk long distances-what assistance is there for me to transfer?
You need to contact your airline to request wheelchair service.
Daughter coming in on Delta flight from Heathrow in mid December on a Sunday. Need to book another flight home to Chicago. Could be Delta but likely another carrier. How much time to budget for arrival, immigration/customs, bag pick up and recheck, transfer terminals?
If it's two separate reservations I'd want 3 hours.
i am arriving at JFK at 09.45am from Charlotte i have a 2nd flight on a separate reservation to catch at 12;00 midday Norwegian Airline to London is this enough time for security and baggage collection and checkin?
That will be pretty difficult. It's only possible if everything goes perfectly.
I have a Delta flight to JFK and another El Al flight to Tel Aviv. Do I need to recheck luggage at JFK or can I sent it through from Delta to El Al?
You need to claim your bags from Delta and re-check them with El Al.
My son will be arriving at JFK at 6am from Tel Aviv. He has a flight 3 hours later on Jet Blue to Nassau, Bahamas. I assume he will be able to print a boarding pass while in Israel or get it on his phone. Will he have to check in at Jet Blue to get a baggage ticket or can he carry his luggage through security and check his luggage at the gate for the flight? He will have a large racksack and a small backpack. I have purchased him Save Time on Jet Blue for the extra $10.
Does he have enough time?
Thank you
If it's all one reservation he should be issued both boarding passes by El Al in Tel Aviv, if not he will have to do the whole process in JFK. If it's one reservation he can re-check his bag right after clearing customs in JFK rather than having to take it to the JetBlue Check-in Desk to re-check . If it's two separate reservations he has to take his checked bag to the JetBlue Check in Desk in Terminal 5 to re-check it.
We will be departing KEF (Iceland) via Icelandair and landing at JFK (Terminal 7, I think). We need to then fly from JFK to JAX via JetBlue (T5?). We expect to arrive at JFK at 7:10 pm and will then obviously have to clear customs and immigration. We will not have checked baggage, carry on only. The last JetBlue flight leaves an hour and twenty minutes later, at 8:30 pm. Is an hour and twenty minutes enough time to get through customs and to the next terminal or do we need to suck it up and spend the night? It will be a Wednesday evening in late March, if that makes any difference.
No, that's not possible at all. You'll have to spend the night.
Hi, approx how many mins does it take to get from gate 36 to gate 1 in AA term 8?
Maybe 10 minutes.
Is there wheel chair transport from Delta in Term 2 to SQ in Term 4?

Is it one reservation or two separate reservations? If it's two separate reservations you need to request wheelchair service from each airline separately.
Hi everyone!
I have a flight from new orleans to jfk (jetblue)and then jfk to dubai (emirates); is one hour and a half enough time between this flights? I have been told I have to recheck my luggage .thank you!
Is it one reservation or two separate reservations?
If anyone can help, much appreciated.

I'm flying from London Heathrow on Virgin Atlantic to JFK and then connecting to a Delta flight to MCO (orlando). I understand you have to go through Immigration at JFK, get your baggage and go through customs at JFK, and then re-check your bags in straight away after customs. What i want to know is where the re-checking desks are for the connecting flights. I'm trying to find a video or a photo online or a map of it and i can't find it at all. I just would like to know where exactly it is once i land so i'm not stressing about finding it.
It's right after you clear customs. It'll be hard to miss.
