Hi I am panicking already! We have to stop in jfk to refuel then get back in the same plane do we have to get our luggage and do customs and immigration? Am sure it's only a 2hr stop been at jfk before! Nightmare!
You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and get on a different plane to go to Orlando. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I will be flying in a few weeks from Toronto Pearson Airport to Rome Italy however we are connecting through JFK. We are on Delta airlines out of toronto and then flying Delta Operated by Alitalia to Rome - we have two hours between when we land at JFK and when we fly out to Rome - do we need to Grab our luggage off the carousal at JFK and re-check them for our flight to Rome? Thanks so much
Is it one reservation or two separate reservations? If it's one reservation you don't need to do anything with your bags in JFK. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. You will just have to take the AirTrain to Terminal 1 and go through security.
Hi, I'm traveling with family of 2 children under 4 years old my wife , and I. Departing from Qatar to JFK terminal 7, then from JFK to Det through delta airline. My concern is how to get our 6 baggages transfers from terminals . And weather they provide special service for transportation people with their baggage from terminals
There is a train called the AirTrain that runs between all terminals outside security. You will have to carry your bags on that.
Luggage didn't make it on my klm flight from Amsterdam yesterday Filed a report and no one can answer when this will be delivered and baggage services doesn't answer the phone. Any suggestions
i have separate booking arriving at Terminal 1 - cayman airways 9:45pm and deparature terminal 4 - china southern 1:45am. can just re check my luggage or need to bring it to terminal 4
You will have to bring your bags with you to Terminal 4.
thank you..
hi, i'm flying in JFK at 2242hr from orlando by delta, and changing to china southern airlines in terminal 4 at 0045hr. will i have enough time for this?
If both flights are on the same reservation that is plenty of time. if it's two separate reservations and you have checked bags it will be difficult.
I am travelling to Phillipines .Start from RDU to JFK arriving at 1244 thru Jet blue. My next flight to Taipei is at 1:15 thru EVA Air. Will i have enough time.
Realistically, no, that is not enough time, even if the flights are on the same reservation, because you have to change terminals and go through security.
tell me if you made it or something :)
I am flying JetBlue from Buffalo, NY and then flying out from JFK to Taipei on China Air. Can I check my bags all the way to Taipei from the Buffalo Aurport?
If both flights are on the same reservation, yes, you can. if it's two separate reservations, no, you can't.
I arrival to JFK airport at 13:30 from MXP (Italy) and I have to depart from EWR airport at 18:00.
I'll pick up my luggage at JFK after immigration. I ask: Do I have to redo the normal check at EWR? Is there in EWR a sort of recheck?
You will have to check your bags at the normal check-in counter in Newark.
Hey, I am arriving at JFK by JetBlue airlines at 12:06 pm from Buffalo ( Terminal 5) and I have a connecting flight(Air India) to New Delhi at 2:25 pm from terminal 4. Both the flights are on the same reservation. Would I have to check in my baggage again and would be there be enough time to get through security ?
Yes, if you purchased two separate reservations you will have to claim your bags in Terminal 5, take them to Terminal 4, re-check them and go through security. It will be very difficult to do that in the time you have, but it's not impossible.
