Leaving Reykjavik (KEF) on Icelandair to arrive in Boston. Have a 3 hour 50 minute layover before flying to Pittsburgh (PIT) on Icelandair/Jet Blue. Does one need to claim luggage for customs when arriving in Boston and then check them in again at the next terminal for domestic flight to PIT?
Yes, in Boston you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, walk to Terminal C, go through security and to your departure gate.
My sister is flying into Detroit tomorrow from Manchester with a connecting flight via Boston to Detroit by Thomas cook. She has a five hour lay over at Boston. She only has her boarding pass for Manchester to Boston as it tells her to check in again at airport transfer desk. What does this mean exactly ?
There will be no transfer desk that can give her her Detroit boarding pass. She has to go to the JetBlue or Delta check-in desk (whichever airline she is flying). She has enough time.
If we arrive BOS at 6:45 p.m. via JetBlue, scheduled layover is 1 hour 50 minutes before leaving for KEF Iceland at 8:35 p.m. Both tickets will be booked and scheduled through Icelandair. 1) Is layover enough time? 2) Is luggage checked through or does it have to be claimed at BOS arrival terminal and taken to Icelandair terminal?
Yes, that is enough time. If the first flight is domestic then your bags will be automatically transferred.
Thank you, but a bit confused as you advised someone else on a domestic flight to Boston that they would have to claim luggage and walk to next terminal before international flight. Also, I assume each terminal has its own TSA gate? Is this correct?
