  • Arrival time and next departure....Too close?
    Mar 16, 2016
    I am arriving JFK international AA flight at 1:40 pm terminal 8 and departure American Eagle at 3:10 pm. With customs, checked luggage ....is there enough to time to make connection??


    That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.


  • Rechecking bags?
    Mar 16, 2016
    I fly from Winnipeg to Toronto to JFK to Paris. I've been told I don't have to recheck my bags in Toronto, but will I have to recheck them in New York? First time flying alone internationally and a tad nervous, especially with all these layovers.


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. You don't have to do anything with them in JFK if all your tickets are on the same reservation.

    Hi.. I am planning to book a flight from Miami to JFK which arrives at JFK at 10:05 AM and then have a JFK to Mumbai international flight at 4:30 PM. These are separate tickets. Will the transfer time be sufficient, I am travelling alone with a kid,


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. The AirTrain connects all terminals outside security.

    i have a flight from toronto to santo domingo connecting in jfk t4 al flight w delta its 45 mins enough time to connect? do i have to do security at jfk again or i can go straight to the international side?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. You can go straight to your departure gate in JFK. There is no "international side". You have enough time if your flight from Toronto is on-time.

    is it 2.30 hours enough to connect from T1 (arriving from Russia by Aeroflot) to T8 American Airlines (departing to Cancun)? many thanks for your advices!


    If on two separate reservations with checked baggage, its barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.

    hi i am arriving at terminal 1 on april 10th with austrian, at 14:25. i want to fly to las vegas . My options are jet blue 17:46 , delta 18:15 and american airlines 17:10. i don't know what is their terminal number. My question is: do i have time to couch AA 17:10 ( how much time i need to be save for the next flight ?) Thank you


    JetBlue uses Terminal 5, Delta uses Terminals 2 and 4, and American uses Terminal 8. I would take the JetBlue or Delta flight.


  • Flying from YYZ to DXB with 1 hr layover in JFK
    Mar 14, 2016
    Just wondering if I will have to claim my baggage or if it will be automatically transferred? YYZ to JFK is on Air Canada and JFK to DXB is on Emirates. Both were booked through cheapoair at the same time. Really stressing about this :( Thanks in advance


    It's possible but difficult. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto, but you will have to take the AirTrain from Terminal 7 to Terminal 4, get your Emirates boarding pass if you don't already have it, and go through security.


    Do you know if my baggage will be automatically transferred by any chance or will I have to claim it and recheck it in? If it won't be transferred I'll end up just taking a carry on


    Since both tickets are on the same reservation you should not have to claim and re-check it on the way to Dubai.


  • Enough time to change planes, etc.
    Mar 13, 2016
    Flying in to JFK from Dallas at 4:10 p.m. and flying out of JFK to Madrid at 7 p.m. Is there enough time to arrive, get luggage, change planes, recheck bags, etc?


    What airlines are you flying? Were your tickets bought on one reservation or separate ones?


  • T5 to T1 comfortable connection time
    Mar 13, 2016
    I am arriving at JFK from RDU at 12:00 (Jet Blue) and departing for Seoul, Korea at 14:00 (Korean Air). Single ticket, purchased through Expedia. Is that a reasonable connection time? At RDU, can Jet Blue check me into my Korean Air flight? thx


    Yes, since everything is on the same reservation, JetBlue should check your bags through to Korean. You just have to go from Terminal 5 to Terminal 1, get your Korean boarding pass if you don't already have it, and go through security. You should have enough time.


  • montreal -jfk - barcelona
    Mar 13, 2016
    i'll be traveling from Montreal to jfk then barcelona. I bought both flight from Delta. Does anyone know if i will have to claim my luggage in jfk or will it go directly to the barcelona flight. And will i need to go trough custom in jkf thanks


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do in JFK is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 4.


    thanks so much , i love your answer !!!

    My husband is flying in from Orlando and we are flying in from Istanbul so is it easy to go from one terminal to the other so that we can catch a taxi together?


    Is it possible for my husband to walk from terminal 8 to terminal 1, where we will be (he will only have carry on luggage)?


    No, it's not reasonably possible to walk. However, he can take the AirTrain (labeled All Terminals) from T8 to T1.

    arriving at JFK from San Juan 16:29 and departiing to manchester uk 19:15 both flihghta american airlines - is there enough time to collect luggage etc and can you tell me which terminals will be used ?


    You don't have to collect your baggage. Both flights will be Terminal 8. All you have to do in JFK is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • AA to Delta connection
    Mar 12, 2016
    Hi, I arrive from LAX on AA at 1906 and then fly with Delta to YYZ at 2055. Separate tickets. Is that enough time? Probably have 1 bag. Thanks


    That would be barely enough time with a checked bag if everything went perfectly.


  • Do I have time!?
    Mar 15, 2016
    I'm flying into JFK from Orlando then have a 1.5hr layover until my next flight to Abu Dahbi so I will be going international... Do I have enough time to get from domestic to international so I do not miss my flight?


    If both flights are on the same reservation then all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate and you have enough time.


    Sorry, I misunderstood this a bit. What airline are you flying to JFK? Are both tickets on the same reservation.


    I'm flying jet blue into JFK then Etihad international... All booked at the same time through Expedia.


    Then you have enough time. You will just have to take the AirTrain from Terminal 5 to Terminal 4 and go through security.


    Awesome! Thank you!!


  • going from term 2 baggage claim to term 4
    Mar 11, 2016
    Never have flown in to JFK before. Need to know about my going from Term 2 baggage claim to Term 4 to wait on arriving passenger, Is there some place I can wait/and or get something to eat until passenger arrives


    I believe there are a few small concession stand type restaurants outside security in T4. You take the AirTrain between terminals.
