Monday, August 21, Flying from Oslo to Gatwick to Boston on Norwegian Airlines, arriving at 7:05pm. 2 persons with Global Entry. Is there enough time to catch the 8:45 pm Jet Blue to Tampa? Can we clear US Customs at London-Gatwick. Thanks!
You have to go through US Immigration and Customs in Boston. With global entry that might be possible, especially with no checked bags, but it leaves very little time to spare.
Arriving at 5:10pm on a Saturday on Terminal A (SW flight that almost never gets a delay)

Departing at 6:50pm at Terminal B to France (AA)

Should this be a problem with check in luggage?
You should have just enough time if everything goes smoothly. You will have to transfer your bags yourself between airlines and terminals.
Hello! we will be coming to BOS on Emirates from Int trip, then need to catch domestic Jet Blue flight to Detroit. Is there any baggage re-check desk after customs? that way we don't have to move check-in baggage all the way to JetBlue counter.
Yes, there is a re-check desk after customs in Terminal E.
Was wondering if this re-check option is still there in Terminal E after customs. Thank a lot in advance
I'm flying into Logan at 5pm and need to make a WOW airline flight to Iceland by 7pm. Do I need to go through any type of security to get into the international terminal? I will not be checking a bag, but worried that two hours may not be enough...
I should also mention that I'm flying in on a Thursday evening.
Hello, my emirates flight is at 11 am but I arrived at 8 am at c17. I see only JetBlue all around here in c17 area and no sign of emirates. Am I at the right gate?
The emirates people are hopefully there by now, check the monitors.
hello, i'll be arriving in june 1 to boston at 8:31pm terminal b and my next flight is at 9:55 at terminal e. i'll have no checked bags. is this enough time? thanks
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Will be flying from Iceland on WOW arriving at 5:30, need to catch a United flight at 7:18 to Houston. I won't be checking any bags and I have global entry. Also flying on a Weds, would think that would be less hectic then the weekends.
It's possible if the WOW flight is on-time and you check in online for your United flight before leaving Iceland.
Does WOW have a reputation for being on time? This is my first time flying them.
Punctuality is not exactly their strong suit.
Traveling from Detroit to Boston arrive at 4pm, have to claim bag and recheck to aer Lingus for at flight at 625pm? will I make it?
Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Detroit is on-time.
I am coming in from Frankfurt into Terminal E at 2:20pm. No checked bags and I have global entry. I need to catch a Jetblue flight from terminal C at 4:40. Do I have enoughtime ? Also, can I transit between terminals without having to clear security again? Thanks
You will have to go through Security again in Terminal C after you clear customs. With Global Entry and no checked bags you should have enough time. Check in online for your JetBlue flight before leaving Germany.
Thank you!
Wife and I will be arriving into Boston from Iceland on Icelandair at 6:35pm and hope to make outgoing flight to Tampa at 8:29pm on Jetblue. We are both US citizens and these would be two separately booked flights so we would have to clear Customs, grab checkin luggage from Icelandair and checkin with JetBlue for flight to Tampa. Is that even doable in just under 2 hour window?
Forgot to mention this would be Saturday evening Oct. 14
It would be really difficult. It's not impossible. If you can do it without checked bags I really recommend it.
Thanks for the info.

Just a follow up, found out that Jetblue partners with Icelandair on the KEF to TPA route through BOS so our checked luggage goes straight through from Iceland to Tampa. So we don't have to worry about dealing with chckin luggage. Only issue is getting us and any carry-on from Icelandair to Jetblue. It appears they are in adjoining terminals (E and C), so is that a fairly straightforward transfer between the international arrivals (plus Customs) and getting over to Jetblue in C? Never been in Logan so I'm not familiar how the transition from the international terminal to domestic goes. Is it fairly straight forward/intuitive or is it pretty crazy/convoluted like MIA?

And thanks for tip above. It led me to do some digging around before buying tickets and figuring out that they can be booked together and not separately.
That is incorrect. You still have to claim your bags to bring them through US Customs in Boston. You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate in C. 2 hours would be enough time.
