I have a flight planned with a checked bag, that is actually stressing me:
Flying from Austin to Atlanta with Delta, then to Paris CDG with Air france, same ticket but one hour layover only, is that realistic? Do I have to go through all the customs and security operations? Thanks.
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.
I am about to flight from Paris to Austin, TX through JFK airport, same ticket (Air France & Delta have an agreement).
Registered luggage, landing at JFK T1 at 1PM EST, due to take off at 3:05pm T2, is that enough? Thank you.
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly. You will have to claim and re-check your bags in JFK in order to go through US Customs.
If I land at 2:30pm from FRA at JFK is that enough time to clear customs and catch a JFK 4:29pm flight to SEA?
What airline are you flying? Are both flights on the same reservation?
Anyway to transfer to a eairlier date? My flight is on Tuesday and I'm just hearing about a nor'easter. Wanted to know how to get a flight on Monday so I can miss the storm
Your airline has likely issued a waiver, check with them.
Can I go to JFK international baggage claim to receive my aunt who is coming to JFK from Abudabi through Etihad airlines
She will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Abu Dhabi and will therefore not use the International baggage claim. She will arrive like a domestic flight and her bags will be on one of the Terminal 4 domestic baggage claims.
Flying in from Russia 5:30pm. LGA flight to Chicago 8:00. Enough time to get bags, clear custom and get to LGA? Transportation from JFK to LGA
No, I really don't think that's enough time, especially with checked bags and the fact that flights coming from Russia are often delayed.
We are arriving 20th August. I am travelling with my son who is profoundly deaf and has behavioural issues. He finds airports particularly difficult. Is it possible to get assistance /fast track through the arrival process
Good Afternoon,

I am flying from Buffalo, NY to JFK (Jet Blue), then from JFK to Lisbon, Portugal (TAP Portugal). Will I need to get my luggage and re-check it in once i get to NYC from Buffalo?
Are both flights on the same reservation or two separate reservations?
I am flying from Atlanta to JFK and then JFK to Brazil. From Atlanta do I fly domestic or international? Not sure since I have connecting flight
What airline are you flying?
Hi I am arriving from Copenhagen with Norwegian at 8.05PM in on April 19. I have a connecting flight to Rochester at 10.45PM. I'm not certain of which terminal. Will that be sufficient time to go through immigration and boarding?
What airline are you flying to Rochester? That should be enough time.
