JFK : 2 hour layver to get from Delta domestic to Alitalia Apr 06, '19 Comments: 1

New York Kennedy Airport Gate Connections

I arrive JFK at 6:35pm. I have an Alitalia flight departing 8:30pm. Delta says this is enough time to transfer. Is it? Don't I have to go thru screening in the international terminal? What is the fastest way to get from Delta to Alitalia? Thanks for any help!
You will have to change terminals to Terminal 1 for the Alitalia flight. You can take the Airtrain between terminals, and you'll have to reclear security in T1. If your bags are checked through and you already have your boarding pass for your onward flight, this is quite doable.

JFK : Connection time allowance Apr 03, '19 Comments: 1

New York Kennedy Airport Gate Connections

My direct flight was cancelled and I’ve been rescheduled to connect in JFK with exactly 1 hour between Aer Lingus landing and Jet Blue take-off. I’ve never used JFK. Is this doable?
Aer Lingus flies from both Shannon and Dublin to JFK, and both are US customs preclearance airports, so you will arrive as a domestic flight. Also, Aer Lingus and JetBlue both use Terminal 5 at JFK, so if your flights are on time, this is doable. However, you should call the airline you booked with to see if there is a way to get a later flight out of JFK to be safer.

New York Kennedy Airport Gate Connections

Good day, I WIll be traveling from Jamaica to Boston. connection through JFK, will I have to re-check my bags and go through TSA again from JFK to Boston?
Yes, you will have to re-check bags and go through TSA after you clear immigration and customs in JFK. However, depending on the terminal you arrive at, and your departing airline, you may see bag drop locations after customs that will prevent you from having to lug your bags to the check in counter.

JFK : 1-hr connection enough time? Mar 20, '19 Comments: 1

New York Kennedy Airport Gate Connections

American Airlines changed our flight: we fly PHX - JFK, one hour to make our connection (also American) JFK-LHR. Just carry-on. Assuming our inbound is on time, is that enough time to make the flight to London? Will we have to change terminals?
All American Airlines flights operate out of Terminal 8, so no need to change terminals/reclear security. If everything is on time, you will be fine.

JFK : Munich to JFK on Luftansa connect to Delta Mar 06, '19 Comments: 1

New York Kennedy Airport Gate Connections

we arrive at 3:45 on Luftansa. we have global entry but we need to claim our bags. we need to get to Delta for a domestic flight for a 6:15 departure or we can depart JFK the next morning. Delta is a separate booking.
2.5 hours on an international to domestic, separate ticket connection is not advisable. In the best of circumstances, you could make it, but if your inbound is delayed, Delta is not obligated to protect you on another flight.
