Hi. My son is travelling LHR TO PDX via JFK on a through ticket with Delta. He has a speech problem and finds it difficult to ask for help so am trying to make it as stress free as possible for him. I believe the flight arrives and leaves from terminal 4 but have read some horror stories about no Delta staff on hand to help and people missing the baggage drop off? Can anyone tell me how difficult it is? where the bag drop actually is? Thanks
Hi...I understand that I have to transfer between terminals from my domestic flight (ROC to JFK arrive at T5) in order to make my connection for (JFK to BEG leave at T4) using AirTran but for someone traveling with lots of luggage is SkyCap/Porter or other service available to help with that transfer (whom to contact)?
There is no such service when going between terminals.
i have no checked luggage. arrive terminal 4 Alitalia no 4 at 6pm. have to connect to Jret Blu for Boston at 8pm. can I make it?
With no checked bags that's just enough time. Check in online for your JetBlue flight before leaving Italy.
I arrive Alitalia at 6 pm. have a connection to Boston JET BLU AT 8 PM. CAN I MAKE IT?
With checked baggage that will be very difficult.
Single ticket: Denver to Dubai, JetBlue to Emirates connection at JFK i.e. T5 to T4. What is the best way to transfer T5 to T4 ?
Thank you.
The only way to transfer is via the AirTrain. You will have to go through security again in Terminal 4.
Thank You very much.
Flying to JFK from PDX on 2/22. I have 40 minutes to connect to Buffalo; is the gate close by?
Your question can't be answered because you didn't even post what airline you are flying.
My international flight is arriving at B28 where I’ll have to clear customs. My connecting flight is 3 hours later at gate B47.

Am I going to need to go through security again / recheck my bags? Is 3 hours enough, even if I get the big X on my picture from the kiosk?
Yes, you have to do all that. Yes, you should have enough time.
Is 2.5 hours enough time to connect from BA international terminal 7 to AA domestic terminal 8. These are separate tickets.
It's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
DELTA airlines. Domestic Travel. From Atlanta connecting JFK to Pittsburgh. Is 45 minutes a long enough layover?
Yes, that is enough time but leaves little time to spare if the flight from Atlanta is delayed.
Thank you, ZAP
Arriving from DFW on AA at 4:48 pm and connecting to AA to MXP at 6:20. Will this connection time pose any problem? Will we have to change terminals and / or pass through security? Thanks!
Both flights are on Terminal 8. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
