I want to book a flight to Punta Cana from Rochester NY with a layover at JFK on Delta. Is 1 hour and 10 mins enough time to get the connecting flight?
I have flights from spokane- slc- jfk- italy- jordan... the first two fliights are through delta and then alitalia.. i sent an email to delta asking whether i can check my luggage to the final destination and they replied that i neef to provide the gate agent with the confirmation number for both flights... what does that supposed to mean? And in case i need to collect my luggage at jfk what is the process for that? Would 3 hrs layover be enough to do so ?
I have a fly from Venice to San Francisco with a one hour and 25 minutes layover at JFK, by Delta airline, same landing and take-off terminal (T4). I have checked in bags. Is it enough time? Do I need to retrieve and recheck my bags again? Thanks!
Yes, in JFK 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 to your departure gate. You have barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
hi with flying with virgin from orlando to JFK and have a transfer time of 1 hour 3 minutes to then get another virgin flight to the UK . Is this enough time?
Yes, that is enough time. Note that your first flight (and maybe both flights) will be operated by Delta. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.
I fly from London to San Juan with a connection in JFK on a single ticket and the connection time in JKF is 1 hour 50 mins, is this enough? Would we also have to collect and re-check in bags?
Just to note this is with Virgin
Note that at leas your second flight is operated by Delta. Yes, you have to claim your bags in JFK to take them through US Customs. That's just enough time.
Hi I am flying with American Airlines on the 04/28/18 and our flight from Punta Cana lands IN JFK at 5:16pm And we then have a flight to London at 7:30pm run by the same airline. We have 2 hours 15 minutes, will this be enough time? As it is all run by the same airline will we need to bag pick up and drop again? I am not sure what terminals we will be coming into and leaving from
Yes, that should be enough time. Both flights will be in Terminal 8. Yes, you will have to claim and re-check your bag in JFK.

What airline is the first flight on? I assume that he will go on the AirTrain like anyone else.
Good afternoon. I will be arriving on an international Delta flight. I need to collect my luggage, go through customs and make my way to the JetBlue terminal. Would 2 hours be enough time for this? Thank you!
No, I'd want more like 3 hours.
Thank you. That was my thought too.
