I am traveling to US for the first time and I will be on a Student Visa.
My port of entry will be JFK from where I will fly to Pittsburgh. My concern is 1 hr 25 min lay over time at JFK. Will I get through immigration, baggage check in and stuff in 1.5 hours?
One thing to note is that I will remain on terminal 8 as my next flight is from the same terminal. Will it still be an issue? And just in case I do miss the flight, will it

be the airline's responsibilty to make sure I get the next flight? Or will I have to pay? I have already booked the ticket so what can be done now? Agency is saying it won't be a issue.

Help will be appreciated.

You might miss it... For most airline's is it your fault to pay for another ticket.

Hello

I'm going to flight and arrive at the airport terminal 3 by 7:55 on 10th of Jan and my friend arrive after 2 hour at the terminal 1. We are going to stay NYC after meeting up at the airport however we are not sure where is the best and easiest to catch up in addition we dont have mobile phone.
now I'm thinking i should go to the terminal 1 to get her so is there any good place? and how to get to terminal 1? is there cafe or shops outside of the terminal 1?

Thanks you

nomi

Take any train on track 1 from t3 to t1. It should take about 2 minutes. There are cafe shops at terminal 1.
