Terminal 4 (ONLY) live feed of the arrivals/departures flights:



On March 25th, 2014 we came home from Barcelona through JFK and had a nightmarish experience going through Customs. After passing through Customs, and dropping baggage for "Connecting Flights" we were directed through a labyrinthian set of hallways up and down with no ventilation or bathrooms and ended up in another full Security Checkpoint that was woefully understaffed and had several hundred people queued up, all of which had connecting flights. We had to abandon our already screened waters and go through a two-hour line again within that secured area, causing hundreds to miss their connecting flights. Please tell me the justification of having that 2nd Security checkpoint within an already secured area?? And if possible eliminate it for future passengers!

What is the phone number for KLM's Baggage Service at JFK?

We fly into terminal 4 on Thursday with kuwait airlines. Getting in at 18:30 NY time.

We want to leave four suitcase at the terminal overnight. We go on JetBlue at 10:35 from terminal 5 the next day.

Can we leave our luggage and if so are they close terminals to collect a and go from there on the day?

Cheers in advance.

I am U.S. citizen, but my husband is not. I understand non-us citizens take longer to get through customs. We arrive from London at 12pm and our flight home to Phx leaves at 430. Would this be enough time?

Forgive me if this is a duplicate question. I might have submitted this earlier by erroneously hitting the backspace key- screen went blank- don't know if it was submitted???
Anyway, my wife's arriving terminal 4 on monday. She reads/speaks limited english so I need a bulletproof way to get her to terminal 5 so she can't get lost.
a) What track number is the 'all terminals' airtrain in terminal 4?
b) I've read that elevators can get her to the airtrain tracks. Are there differing levels for different tracks or just one level for all tracks?
P.S. I think but not 100% certain that the track is track 2?
Thanks in advance....

Hi can you please let me know what restaurants are available in the terminal, before or after checking in. I have a group of 17 that will be looking to sit down and eat dinner on Friday night, as we have time to kill. Not fast food. Much appreciate your input.

I plan to arrive with Uzbekistan airways HY101 on at 12:00, and then I should take American Airlines 4442 (3:25 pm) or Delta 4129 (2:30 pm) flight to Montreal (YUL).
How do I get from Terminal 4 to termianl 3?
Do I have to go trough passport controll que, or I have some transit gates to Montreal flights?
Thanks in advance!

I am flying in 2 weeks via Caribbean Airlines. My flight is very early (6am) and as with international travel, I am scheduled to arrive at the airport approx. 3 hours prior. Someone mentioned that the ticket counters might not be open that early! Is this true? I thought due to the high volume of air traffic @ this terminal, that it would be open 24 hours. I can't seem to find the ticket counter hours anywhere else online. Could someone advise me with a better answer? Thank you in advance!

Can a Delta international, economic traveler in route to Istanbul have access to a paid lounge service with shower?

Hello, I land at JFK on Qatar Aiways (Terminal 4, I think) on Dec 17 and fly out on Dec 20, to Vancouver, Canada via Toronto on Air Canada. Three Questions:

1) What terminal does Air Canada use (can't find it in the terminal lists)
2) If I leave my big suitcases in the terminal 4 luggage storage for those few days will I be able to easily pick them up before flying on to Canada (on Air Canada)?
3) When I return from Canada on Jan 3 on United Airlines (Terminal 7)at 7:16pm will I have enough time to make my 10:20pm Qatar Airways flight to Doha if United Airways won't check my bags through to Doha from Vancouver? (Hoping they will but I bought the two tickets separately so not sure how that works)

Thanks much!

My mother arrives on 8/06 7:40 am on flight LA532. I will be picking her up with my small children and I need help figuring out the best way to coordinate. I am considering asking her to wait outside the terminal so I don't have to take the sleeping babies out of the car, if I do this, where should I tell her to wait for me? are there marked zones or landmarks? If not, Where is the closest temporary parking area and what is the walking distance? I will be pushing a stroller, and returning with luggage. where are there public phones (not sure about her cell service) in the terminal and how much exact change would she need? thank you

In 4 July I will arrive from Brazil at 05:45pm(TAM - JJ8082)and in the same day I will go to Paris at 11:20pm(Air France - AF 9). I think TAM is in the Terminal 4 and Air France is in the Terminal 1, I'm right? If I'm, How do I go to T4 to T1? How long it takes? Tks.

You are absolutely right about the Terminals. From T4 to T1 take any train on track 2. It takes about 2 minutes.

My fiance and I both arrive at terminal 4 but on different airlines. I arrive 15 mins before him and I want to surprise him. Is it possible to meet him before immigration and customs or do I have to wait until we go through immigration and customs to surprise him?

You have to wait until he clears immigration and Customs.

Hi I am travelling in November this year and looking to book my airport lounge I have just read that (The Lounge) (T4)will be permanently closed on 30th June, 2012. Is this correct? if so is it worth booking into KAL Business Class Lounge (Terminal 1)? and how long and how easy is it to get to Terminal 4 from there? thanks.

Somebody said there are very long queues while cheicking in for international flights as all checked-in luggage is scanned and needs to be identified before it will be put on the plane. Can someone please verify this? I plan to reach JFK T4 at 8.15 am for a 11.15 am flight - will that be sufficient time?

And can I lock my checked-in luggage or will security ask me to open it up? Can I lock it after they've checked it?


They will unlock it themselves. You have plenty of time.
