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.
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
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.
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.
