Hi, I will arrive to T4 with a Jetblue flight from SFO and then I will have only 2 hours to go to T4 to take my connection with Emirates to fly back to Italy. Is this doable? Thanks in advance
If both flights are on the same reservation that's doable.
Thanks. I suppose I need to go outside T5, catching the airtrain and pass the security to T4, don't I?
Yes, that is correct.
Hi,

me and my family are planning to be traveling to JFK with Emirates from MXP and then get DL to BOS. I've seen that Emirates will arrive at JFK at 7:00 pm and the DL domestic flight will leave at 9:00 pm. The terminal is the same for both, the T4: will we make it on time? At present, our plans are to travel Economy class but we will certainly switch to Business class if that should make the connection easier and more certain.
It's a difficult connection either way if you're bringing checked bags because you'll have to transfer them yourself to the Delta check-in desk after clearing US Immigration and customs.
What is the procedure for baggage when going from International to Jet Blue?
Security? Customs?
What airline are you flying in on and from where?
flying in on El Al - connecting to Jet Blue - just want details on picking up baggage, and where you re check etc.
If both flights are on the same reservation you arrive in T4, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then take the AirTrain to T5, go through security and to your departure gate.
thanks - exactly what I needed.......
I only have an hour and 15 minutes to go from Terminal 4 to Terminal 1 and board my flight to Rome on Alitalia. The airline is telling me that it's regulated and that I will have no problem. But I am very concerned. Any advice on the quickest route from Terminal 4 to Terminal1? Is it doable?
You have to take the AirTrain from T4 to T1 and go through security. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
On 8/ /17, I fly from Lisbon to JFK on one ticket through Delta. Delta came up with the itinerary, so I made the assumption I would make my connection to MSP. I have a 97 minutes layover. I just have carry on luggage.
Will I make it?
You're flying LIS-JFK-MSP? Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
That is reassuring. Let's hope all goes smoothly.Thanks
I will be arriving at Terminal 4 from LHR and have 2hr 45 m to make a connecting flight to JAX from terminal 2. After clearing Immigration and Customs and rechecking my bags please can you advise whether I should take Airtrain orDelta Shuttle Bus to Terminal 2? If the latter do I go through security in Terminal 4 before catching bus?
I would take the AirTrain, but if you decide to take the shuttle, yes, you go through security in T4 and then take the shuttle. Note however, that Jacksonville flights leave from both terminals 2 and 4 so be sure to check delta.com or the monitor on the day of your flight before running off to another terminal.
Hello. We are flying from Brussels and have 2h10 min ground time in JFK before our flight to LAX. This is with Delta. Can anybody confirm that it is same terminal for arrival and departure in this case? (T4). Is it sufficient time or should I worry?
Thanks
You will arrive in Terminal 4, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security and to your departure gate, which will also be in Terminal 4. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.
How much time should it take me to get to gate 38 at JFK Terminal 8 once I clear security? It looks like a long distance. Is there motorized transport?
You take an underground moving walkway. It should take less than 10 minutes.
I will be arriving from Amsterdam to JFK via KLM (Delta) at 3:25pm, and then departing JFK to Sacramento at 6:34pm via JetBlue. Will 3 hours be enough time to get through customs and re-check bags? Thank you.
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I'm traveling from Buffalo New York to New York City JFK then flying straight to Santo Domingo where would I go through customs. The layover in JFK is only an hour
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You will go through Dominican Republic Immigration and Customs in Santo Domingo. You have enough time if the flight from Buffalo is on-time.
