My dad arrives at JFK at 8.50am at terminal 4 and has to board a flight which departs at 11.30am from terminal 5. Does he have enough time to get through immigration, go to terminal 5, go through security and board the next flight? He doesn’t have any check in bags. He is carrying only carry on luggage.
Hi ,

I have been offered different tickets from CLT (NC) to JFK-- american airlines
and JFK to DXB -- Emirates.

both are different tickets, so I assume I have to do a re-check in and pass thru the security again.
How much time would be needed to do this without any hustles. I will have to travel with my family ( 2 adults + 2 toddlers) and 6 check in bags.

thanks in advance
Flying into JFK from PHX, then to Barcelona, Delta, on same ticket; have e 1hr 11 min to get there. Do I have to go into a different terminal to get on international leg and pass through security again?
My flight from Orlando has 1-hour connection in JFK to make my flight to Heathrow. I am on a single ticket. Is 1 hour enough time?
Definitely cutting it close on this one, but I usually give myself just an hour for domestic flights anyway.

I plan to arrive from Moscow (Aeroflot) at Terminal 5 at 5:20pm. Assuming it lands on time and I get out of there quickly (Global Entry), I then take 25 min max to go get to Terminal 5 for a JetBlue flight at 6:50pm.

I should be able to check in online to get my boarding pass, so straight to security. I think I'd get there around 6pm or so. What time does the gate close? 30 min before departure? Does this plan seem reasonable enough?
I am flying into JFK from Rome on Swiss Air arriving at 3:45 PM and have a connection on Delta departing at 6:40 PM. They are not on the same reservation (different booking numbers). Will I have to go back thru security and is this enough time?
Forgot to mention the Delta flight is to Seattle. From the research I've done, it looks like both flights are in Terminal 4. Am I correct on this info?

Arriving on a flight from Dubai at 14.25 (T4) and departing on a Jetblue flight at 16.55. Is this enough time when connecting on a single ticket?
That should be enough time.
we are flying from Orlando to JFK with American Airlines and then continue from JFK to Helsinki with Finnair. It's the same terminal and both flights are on one reservation. We have done that connection several times earlier but now we have only 1 hour 40 minutes between the flights. It's enough, right?
Yes, that should be enough time.
Delta has changed our flight from SFO to JFK, we now have only 1h36 to go from T4 to T1 before our plane to CDG. This will be in Thusday at about 7pm/8pm, this might be an important info as custom wait time might depend on when. We do not need to collect our luggages, only move from T4 to T1 and cross the custom. Is is feasible ?
I think it would be tight, but barely doable if you hustle. Terminal 4 is quite long, so if you arrive from one of the high-numbered gates, you'll have a long walk to get to the AirTrain. You will not have to clear customs on departure from the US, but security may take a good 15-30+ minutes if there are a lot of other flights departing around that time. If Delta changed your flight by a significant amount, you could try calling to see if they would be willing to change it to an earlier SFO-JFK if it works for you.
I will arrive at JFK terminal 7 with Icelandair att 19.00 wednesday 20 of june 2018 and
next flight to Rochester ROC with Delta Airlines leaves 21.30 from terminal 2 och 4, I don't know exakt terminal know. Do you think that I have enough time?
