I am flying from Ireland on a working j1 visa to JFK and getting a connecting flight to Boston. I have an hour between my flight arriving and leaving to boston. I will need to get to T4 from T2. Will i have enough time to do this and will i have to go through customs and security. I am flying with Delta.
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ireland. All you have to do in JFK is take the shuttle bus from T4 to T2, all inside security.

I was wondering if I have enough connection time. My arriving flight on Emirates, is at 1:55pm and my departing flight on Delta, at 3:30pm is enough time. I have global entry and I don't have to check a bag (but would like to if time is ok). I'm well-traveled but I want to make sure i have enough time overall.

Thank you!
With no checked bags and Global Entry, it's possible if you check in for your Delta flight online, but it leaves no time to spare.
Making flight arrangements. Potentially have 2 hr. 15 min. to make connection from an American Air flight, to an American Air flight to Europe.
That is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thanks. First time through JFK, and 1st time out of country. "Ellie May Clampett goes to Europe!"
I'm waiting for a delayed jetblue flight from buffalo to jfk. Due in jfk 21.10 terminal 5. Flying out of terminal 4 at 22.00. Help
Good luck. There's nothing I can do to help you.
I have a flight from Montreal to JFK on Delta, delayed to arrive at 9:58pm (Terminal 4), then have to catch a flight with EVA air at terminal 1 at 1:28am, do i have to collect my baggage and re-checkin again? or is it possible to have Delta transfer my luggage on to my next flight? And if so, how do i check in for the EVA air flight (as they do not have online check in option available)? Will i have enough time to complete all this if the flight is delayed further?

Thank you so much for the help!
If it's two separate reservations you will have to claim your bags, take it on the AirTrain to Terminal 1 and re-check it with Eva. You should have enough time.
Flying from Orlando to jfk with a one hour stop over to get connecting flight to,London Heathrow with delta and virgin , is this enough time to get connecting flight , all booked on the one ticket
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am flying from MCO to JFK via JetBlue and will arrive at 11:54 a.m. at terminal 5 and have a connecting flight with Etihad to Abh Dhabi that departs at 3:00 from terminal 4. How long will it take to switch terminals and go through security again?
You have plenty of time.
Similar case but flying in from Boston to JFK (Jetblue) arriving at 12:58 PM before Etihad flight to Abu Dhabi at 3 pm. Do I have to go through security check again?
Hi, I will be arriving to JFK at 3:15pm on American Airlines and have another flight leaving on Delta to Paris at 5:35pm. Will I have enough time to get to my Delta flight? Also, do I have to go through security again at JFK or am I able to just go from Terminal 8 (AA) to Terminal 4 (Delta)?
Yes, you will have to go through security again in T4. That is a very difficult connection - nearly impossible if you have checked baggage.
Ok, thanks. I will not have any checked bags. Do you recommend me walking (fast) from terminal to terminal or taking the airport shuttle?
You can't walk, you have to take the AirTrain
We are flying American Airlines to JFK on Sept 29th arriving at 3:12 PM. We depart at 5:20 PM on American to Rome. I know 2 hours should be adequate but I've been advised JFK will delay landings if there is any bad weather. Also is the International departure in a Terminal with a shuttle within the Security area or will we have to go through security again?
All you have to do in JFK is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 8.

I am flying from Montreal to JFK T4 landing at 1.47pm on Delta.

My next flight is at JFK in T4 at 3.25pm, on Delta as well (but think i may need to check in with Virgin as my following 2 connecting flights to get back to Melbourne are both with Virgin)

I can check-in online now with Virgin and then just bag-drop and I also have priority queuing as am flying premium economy.

My question is....IS this TOO little time to go out through customs, pick up bag, bag drop for next main flight and then get back through customs for my flight st 3.25pm?

Any advice appreciated. thanks
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal.
