Flying in from Russia 5:30pm. LGA flight to Chicago 8:00. Enough time to get bags, clear custom and get to LGA? Transportation from JFK to LGA
No, I really don't think that's enough time, especially with checked bags and the fact that flights coming from Russia are often delayed.
We are arriving 20th August. I am travelling with my son who is profoundly deaf and has behavioural issues. He finds airports particularly difficult. Is it possible to get assistance /fast track through the arrival process
Good Afternoon,

I am flying from Buffalo, NY to JFK (Jet Blue), then from JFK to Lisbon, Portugal (TAP Portugal). Will I need to get my luggage and re-check it in once i get to NYC from Buffalo?
Are both flights on the same reservation or two separate reservations?
I am flying from Atlanta to JFK and then JFK to Brazil. From Atlanta do I fly domestic or international? Not sure since I have connecting flight
What airline are you flying?
Hi I am arriving from Copenhagen with Norwegian at 8.05PM in on April 19. I have a connecting flight to Rochester at 10.45PM. I'm not certain of which terminal. Will that be sufficient time to go through immigration and boarding?
What airline are you flying to Rochester? That should be enough time.
fly into terminal 1 from London Gatwick at 9 am with hold luggage and fly out from terminal 4 at 12 auto DCA, do i have enough time.
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
We have a flight into JFK from LHR in July on BA. It is scheduled to land at 3:50PM. I used miles for this flight. Now I need to get a ticket to fly home from NYC. It looks like JFK is pricey for domestic flights, LGA is much more reasonably priced.

Question: Is it doable to fly into JFK at 350pm and catch a flight from LGA at 750PM? That gives us 5 hours. Can we check in our baggage at JFK, or will we need to go through customs, get our luggage, transfer to LGA and check luggage in?
Yes, that should be possible - note however, that it's 4 hours, not 5. No, you cannot check your baggage in JFK. You will have to take it with you to LGA.
I am departing on Delta for an international flight from Terminal 4 but have a 5 hr layover. My service animal will need the relief area and I'd like to use the one in Terminal 5. Will I have to go through security again to access terminal 5 and then again to get back into 4? Thanks.
Yes, you would have to go through security again.
Hi there
I'll be traveling alone w/5 suitcases. Arriving on JetBlue terminal 5 and then heading to terminal 1 to catch my International flight so can I find some help transferring 5 suitcases through the air train from terminal to terminal cause I'm kinda old woman. Thanks.
