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.
fly into terminal 1 from London Gatwick at 9 am with hold luggage and fly out from terminal 4 at 12 auto DCA, do i have enough time.
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
We have a flight into JFK from LHR in July on BA. It is scheduled to land at 3:50PM. I used miles for this flight. Now I need to get a ticket to fly home from NYC. It looks like JFK is pricey for domestic flights, LGA is much more reasonably priced.

Question: Is it doable to fly into JFK at 350pm and catch a flight from LGA at 750PM? That gives us 5 hours. Can we check in our baggage at JFK, or will we need to go through customs, get our luggage, transfer to LGA and check luggage in?
Yes, that should be possible - note however, that it's 4 hours, not 5. No, you cannot check your baggage in JFK. You will have to take it with you to LGA.
