  • Transfer from American Airline to JAL
    May 17, 2016
    3
    In July, I will fly from RDU to JFK by American Airline and then will take JAL to Tokyo. Flight from RDU will arrive at JFK at 7:30am and the flight on JAL will leave JFK at 9:40am. The trip is on one ticket. Is that enough time? These 2 airlines are on 2 different terminals, correct? Hearing about all the wait at the security has made me very nervous. Will things get any better by July? Thanks

     

    Nobody knows if things will be better in July. Yes, you will have to change terminals and go through security.

     

    But is 2 hrs and 10mins enough time to make such connection under the current situation? Please advise.

     

    It would be very close.

    Arrive at JFK 6:08pm from Chicago with Delta. 1hr 22min layover. JFK to Greece with Delta. All on same reservation. Will I need to a)re-check my bags b) go thru TSA and immigration? C) will i have enough time? Departing late June

     

    There is no US immigration when leaving the US. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    Many thanks! And my luggage will not need to be rechecked correct? The 1hr and 22 min layover will be ok to get from arrival gate to departure? Do you know what terminal by chance?

     

    Both flights will be in Terminal 4. You don't have to do anything with your luggage.

     

  • Time to get suitcase, do customs and change terminal

    I will be landing in Terminal 4 at 3:43 p.m. and have next flight in Terminal 2 at 6:10 p.m. Will I have time to get my baggage from baggage claim, do customs and walk to Terminal 2 then to the gate?

     

    That should be just enough time if both tickets are on the same reservation.

     

  • BRU-JFK JFK to BOS Terminal 4

    My flight from BRU-JFK changed and I now only 1 hr 39 min to make my connection JFK-BOS Is this enough time to go thru immigration/customs/ recheck bags and pass security to make that Boston flight? I initially had 2hrs 39min but my flight from BRU changed

     

    With the current security staffing issues, I think it will be pretty close to impossible for you to make this connection.

     

  • DAL -- NYC / NYC to Madrid

    I arrive from DAL to JFK in Terminal 4 on Delta at 3 p.m. and have a flight to Madrid in Terminal 8 on American that departs at 7 p.m. Flights were booked separately, so I realize I have to claim luggage from first flight, then go back through security, etc. and get to other terminal. Is there a way to recheck bag at Delta baggage claim and then get shuttle to other terminal? Will I have enough time, provided flight is not delayed?

     

    No, you have to take your bag with you on the AirTrain to Terminal 8 to check it with American. You should have enough time.

     

  • Transit Visa OR Tourist Visa

    i'm traveling from Dubai to Cancun & my connecting flight is in JFK. -- my flight from Dubai to JFK will be arriving at Terminal 4 & my flight from JFK to Cancun is on Terminal 5. My concern is that I'm a Philippine Passport holder.. is a US Transit Visa enough to let me go through my next flight since I'm leaving the secured area of Terminal 4 to go to Terminal 5? Or do I actually need a Tourist Visa to do that w/ no problems? Please help..?

     

    All you need is a transit visa.

     

  • Connecting flight to India

    Hello.. I will be arriving from O'Hare in Chicago at 9p.m at terminal 5, and need to take a connecting flight at terminal 4 to Abu Dhabi at 10:30 Pm. Question 1. Can i check my bags through final destination in India? Question 2. Can I make to to my connecting flight in the time alloted? The carrier is Etihad Airlines Thanks,

     

    Were your tickets bought on one reservation or two separate reservations? With the current security issues and the fact that you will have to go through security again in Terminal 4, this is a difficult connection, even if your bags are checked through.

    Hey, I'm going to Israel in July out of Orlando, with a connection on American. I get back to New York at about 5:15 in the morning on the 14th of June, in the Delta terminal, and have a flight on American Airlines to Charlotte at 8:30. Am I gonna be alright?

     

    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

  • 2 International flights (T1-T4)

    I'll travel international with EVA airline from BKK-JFK, arrive 9.30 am at T1 then I had another international flight with separate reservation with copa at T4, take off 2pm. - Do I need to pass 2 times of immigration/clearance? or Copa has another check-in counter inside the gate? - Both airlines are star alliance member, so they allow to check bag through but I plan to carry on, will it waste more time? - With 4.5 hrs, Will I make it? Thanks

     

    You will arrive in T1, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through US Customs, then take your bags with you on the AirTrain to T4, check them with Copa, and go through security. You should have enough time. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.

    I have booked a delta flight SFO - JFK (arrives 9:25 PM) and I have to connect with another one that is JFK - AGP (departure 10:36 PM). Is it enough time?

     

    Yes, all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 4.

    i arrive jfk at 11.50am flight to mco at 1.30pm is this enough time to clear immigration and customs, what happens if not

     

    What airlines are you flying? With the current security delays at major US Airports that is likely not enough time.

    I have Delta flight arriving from Stockholm to JFK at 11.05AM and a connecting Delta flight to Charleston SC at 01.40PM (2,35h layover). Do you know what terminals are likely to be used, and if that connection is reasonable to make? I assume that we will have to claim our luggage and go through customs/immigration? I should mention that the flights are on one ticket. Thanks in advance!

     

    You will both arrive in Terminal 4 and depart from Terminal 2. I think you have enough connection time. Yes, you will have to claim your bags to take them through US Customs then immediately re-check them at the re-check desk.

     

  • 3 hours connection time T8 to T4. Enough?

    Hi, I am arriving from Helsinki, Finland at 3.50 pm at terminal T8. My connecting flight to Atlanta is from T4 at 7.25 pm. They are separate tickets flights and I am travelling with both carry on and checked baggage. Is the time enough for the transfer or do I need to be prepared to rush? Also this is my first flight to the US. So could someone guide me with the steps in making the transfer. Thanks in advance.

     

    You should have enough time. You will arrive in T8, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through US Customs. Then take the AirTrain to Terminal 2 or 4 (Delta uses both for domestic flights to Atlanta), check your bags, with Delta, then go through security, and to your departure gate.

    Arriving from UK 15:38 with Delta Need to make a connection departing with AA to Bermuda at 17:25 I'll be travelling hand baggage only. Would this be a disaster? any advice appreciated. ta

     

    Yes, I don't think that would be reasonably possible, even without checked bags. Security lines in JFK are really bad right now.

    Hi there, my mother arrives in a delayed flight from Columbus (CMH) at 3:36 PM to terminal 8 and has to recheck bags and get on her flight to Buenos Aires (EZE) that departures from terminal 7 at 4:10 PM. She's only got 35 minutes. Can she do it? Can she request to go to the top of the line at security?

     

    That's pretty much impossible.
