How early should I get there Are my bags being checked in there for international flight Or at JFK will I have to retrieve my bags
AA Flight 737 from LHR was delayed and is now posted to arrive late at A Terminal, Gate 19, at 7:44 PM. Connecting flight AA 5195 is posted to depart Terminal F, Gate 38, at 8:25 PM. What is best plan? Can this connection be made -- carried on luggage, but CUSTOMS may be an issue. Advice? Thanks!
With no checked bags you still have a chance. There's a line of storms headed towards PHL that may delay 5195 as well.
Thanks for your response!
Transferring between AA 1631 (terminal c) to BA 1607 with 60min. in between. Will this be enough time and will I need to go through customs?
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. Also, both of your flights are operated by American. You have enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
AA1631 delayed so that it is now projected to land 15 minutes before BA1607 is projected to leave (not showing as delayed at this time). Is a 15 minute window for transfer achievable? (terminal C to terminal A)
Thank you for the response!

Flight AA1631 delayed so that it lands 15 minutes prior to BA1607 departure time. Is this transfer from C to A achievable in ~15 minutes?
Hi,

I am arriving at PHL from MAN and then traveling to Tampa, I have 1h 50m in PHL, is that enough? Both flights with AA
Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I have a 55 Minute Layover and I need to get from terminal F to B. Fastest route?
Take the shuttle bus. You have enough time.
I have 2.15h between my flight from MUC, arriving at Terminal A, and my flight to MCO, departing at Terminal C. What will I have to do in that time? (where to go from A to C, where to re-check my bags, immigration) And is all this even possible in time?
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly. You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and walk to your departure gate.
My flight on AA from LAX (AA439) arrives in terminal B and my connecting flight on AA to London (AA728) leaves from terminal A . I have 52 minutes between flights . Is it doable?
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thank you. How long does it take to walk from terminal B to A assuming the longest distance between gates?
10-15 minutes.
I only have 52 minutes between the flights. I assume that AA and BA flights are in the same terminal. Will this work?
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Flying with AA. Coming from RDU, connecting at PHL on the way to AMS.
Connection time is 1.5 hr. Is that enough?
Many thanks!
All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
We are arriving from Rome on nov 21,2017 at 3:50pm and leaving for CLT at 5:30pm. Will we have enough time to clear customs and recheck baggage AND make connection??
That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
