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.

Hello !
My sister and I are both arriving at JFK from two different airports in Europe within the same hour. As she is not an experienced traveler and her english is not as strong, I want to meet her as early in the arrivals process as possible. Any recommendations where in T4 to wait and meet? Can that be pre-immigration or best in the luggage area? Thanks
They don't like it when you loiter before immigration. I would meet in the luggage area.
I have a 11:40 AM flight from jfk to sfo, I am taking JetBlue, what time should I get to the airport to get through tsa and have additional time to eat before my flight. First time flying.
Hi all, We are flying from Australia to LAX, then couple of hours later LAX to JFK with Delta arriving at terminal 4 at 5pm on the 23rd of December. Any idea of time to clear customs bags etc and get outside? I have seen maybe an hour mentioned? Looking to book a car service so am trying to get an idea of when to book for. Cheers
You will go through US Immigration and Customs in LAX. All you have to do in JFK is claim your bags. So you should be out in 30 minutes or less.
