My sisters flight left late from Prague. She arrives at JFK today 6:02pm and connecting flight is at 6:40pm. Both de alta flights. Will that be enough time? The have bags
No, they will be stuck in New York overnight if there's not another flight to their destination later that night with seats available.
I am arriving at JFK at 11 in the morning and have a later flight (9:30 pm) on a different airline. Will I be able to check my bags in for my later flight and leave to spend the day in the city?
It depends on the airline. What airline? There is baggage storage in Terminal 4 if you can't.
American Airlines
Hi, I am arriving at JFK terminal 4 at 22:00 pm from San Salvador and departing at 01:00 am from terminal 1 to Moscow. Is it enough time to go through customs? Flight is in one ticket and no checked luggage. Thanks in advance!
Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I will be flying from Nice, France to JFK via Delta on 10/2/17. My arrival time to JFK will be at 3:30pm, and I will need to make a connecting flight to Detroit at 5:10pm. Will this be enough time to get through customs and make my connection?
That is just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Hello... is it possible to arrive at JFK via American Airlines from London Heathrow on a Sunday at 4pm then get through customs and onto a 6pm domestic flight to Dallas via American Airlines? Kindly advise. Many thanks.
Yes, that is enough time if both flights are on the same reservation.
Thank you for your reply! Currently they are not on the same reservation, but if I called American Airlines, is that something they can combine? Kindly advise. Thank you again!
Yes, it would be something they should be able to combine.
in terminal 8 how do I get from gate 1 to gate 45 and how long would that take. we have a short connection time
It shouldn't take more than 10-15 minutes.
I am arriving from Stockholm into JFK at 8:05PM. I want to book a separate flight to get from JFK to CHS (Jet Blue) which takes off at 9:55PM. Is that enough time to go through customs and get checked in and to the Jet Blue terminal? We won't check bags and will download the mobile passport app. Thank you!
With no checked bags it's barely possible.
Plan is currently to arrive from Miami on a AA flight at 6.30pm, I assume into T8.
To then get to T7 and catch a BA flight to London leaving at 8.45pm.
Bags will need to be collected also.
Is this possible?
Or I can get earlier flights into La Guardia.
That should be enough time if the flight from Miami is on-time.
I am coming from Greece expects to land at 350pm in JFK. I am connecting to Atlanta on 5:29 flight. Any chance of making that flight.
What airlines? Is it one reservation or two separate reservations? Do you have checked bags?
The only flight out of Paris is delayed meaning I won't get into JFK terminal 1 until 8:30pm on a Friday night. I have no checked bags. Can I make it to terminal 8 for the only flight going into my home airport with a departure time of 9:55?
It's possible, but will be very difficult.
