I am flying from Denver to JFK on Jet Blue, and then to Israel on El Al. It's a single reservation, but there is a 13 hour layover at JFK. Does anyone know if my bag will be checked all the way through or if I will need to pick it up at JFK? I am told the check in for the El Al flight only opens 4 hours before the next flight!
Your bags should be checked all the way to Tel Aviv unless the connection is overnight.
I'm arriving Terminal 4 on Delta from Nice. Connecting to a Jetblue flight out of Terminal 5. I will have to go through customs, collect my bags check in at the Jetblue counter and go through security in Terminal 5. I have an hour and 53 minutes between connections. I have Global Entry. Do I have enough time to make my connecting flight?
With Global Entry you have a chance but it's still very risky.
I have a flight tomorrow night with only a 1hr 15min connection time. I land in JFK -terminal 4 (Virgin America) at 7:15pm, then depart Terminal 8 (LATAM) for an international flight at 8:30pm. Is this enough time with only 1 carry on?
With a carry on it's barely enough time if the first flight is on-time. It leaves no time to spare.
We are arriving at JFK from CDG on Delta and have a Delta connector to LA within a 2 hour window. Is this enough time to get through customs?
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I'm arriving at JFK from Zurich on American. I have Global Entry and will be carrying on. I have 90 minutes to catch an American flight to Dallas. Is this enough time?
Yes, with Global Entry you should be OK if the flight from Zurich is on-time.
Traveling in to JFK from ATL on Delta, option gives a 55min layover to catch Delta flight to Iceland KEV... is that enough time to make it through necessities prior?
There are no "necessities". You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. That is enough time.
Hi, i'm travelling from UK to Canada with my 2 kids. We arrive on Virgin at JFK Term 4 at 16:30. I'm looking to fly out with Air Canada at 19:55 from Term 8. I'll be changing airlines, so no through ticket, so i'll have to clear security, collect my bags, re-check my bags and back out through security. Is 3h 25m enough time?
Air Canada does not use Terminal 8. They use Terminal 7. Yes, that should be enough time.
I am travelling to Buffalo via JFK on Sunday. My flight with Virgin Atlantic arrives in JFK at 14:50 and my connecting flight (with Delta) departs at 16:26. I am assuming I will need to go through Security/Customs etc but will I need to collect my luggage or will this be automatically transferred? Thank you.
Yes, you will have to 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. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I'm coming in from Rome in august at 1pm. Am wanting to catch another delta flight to Indianapolis at 340. I will have carry on. Do I have to do any customs? Will I have enough time?
Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security. You should have enough time.
