Hi,

I am travelling with my young family from Denver to Dublin and we have a 12hour lay over. Unfortunately the Denver->JFK and JFK->Dublin flights are on different tickets so I have to pick up my bags and checkin for my next flight back to dublin. I get in around 6am from Denver and was wondering how if you know when the Aer Lingus checkin desk opens.... so how soon I can check in my bags and clear security

Thanks

JFK_Specialist_...

Around 6AM.

Hi, my girlfriend is arriving in a Delta Flight from Amsterdam on the 31st and she is getting a shuttle with Go Airlink to Manhattan. She is very worried about not finding the counter of that company, so she can be picked up. Since she is not so confident with her english, is there a way to find a map or some instructions on how to get there?
Thank you, Leo

It seems that my Delta international flight is now arriving in T4, changed from T3. Is this a good thing? How is the customs & immigration at T4? And how is the connection to the AirTrain from T4?

Hello I have a flight on 06/18/2012 that will be landing from Reno, NV to New York La Guardia Airport @ 11:30 AM. I then have a 12 hour layover (which I will be spening a night at a nearby Airport Hotel). I then have a fight at JFK International Aiport on SAA (South African Airways) Flight 7916 on 06/19/2012. I have a few queastions:

Is Terminal 4 where I go to retrieve my boarding pass and check in my luggage?

Are the international and domestic terminals seperate? Or is all of JFK a massive international Airport and La Guardia is domestic only?

When I land in La Guardia will I retrieve my checked in luggage there or do the Airports automatically transport my baggage to JFK?

Please see my previous response.

Hello, I am taking an AA flight that is due to arrive 7:10 am, terminal 8 on Sun. May 6. I need to be at the El Al Ticket counter in terminal 4 by 8:40 am. Will I have enough time? What is the best way to handle this? How long do you usually have to wait for lugguage at terminal 8? Thanks so much!

JFK_Specialist_...

You should have enough time. If your first flight is domestic your bags should be clipped to final destination if not you will need to pick up your bags and check them through Customs. You would have to wait up to 30 minutes for your luggage.

My wife will be arriving on Copa Airlines at around 12:30 am with our 3 year old. I'm afraid that at that time our son might be sleepy or not want to walk to immigration. My wife is petite with a weak back and can't carry him plus the carryon. Can we request help? A cart? Wheelchair? Would I be able to enter the luggage area to receive my son while she gets the luggage? We used a stroller the last time but didn't get it until we got to the luggage area. Thanks

JFK_Specialist_...

After clearing Customs there are carts.

Hi,

I will be arriving at JFK by 8:15 with Emirates. I have seen in April 25 and 26's flight status that Emirates arrival isn't what it was estimated, arriving past 9:00am. Is this always like this?

I plan on taking NYC Airporter from JFK to Port Authority to catch my bus departing at 1:00pm.

Will I have sufficient time?

Thanks

JFK_Specialist_...

Yes.

Hi Specialist,

I just booked a flight arriving on Emirates at JFK T4 at 8:15am and need to catch the connecting flight on Delta at JFK T3 at 11am.

Will this time be sufficient for baggage collection and recheck-in? Or respectively how much time is normally required for this procedure in case my EK flight gets delayed?

Thanks for your advice!

JFK_Specialist_...

You have plenty of time to connect. Allow usually 2 to 3 hours between the flights.

Hi Specialist,

My wife with two kids ( Kid and Infant) is landing @ Terminal 4 from India to catch up domestic flight @ Terminal 3.

1) I understand the checin baggage needs to pass through customs and re-checkin with Delta. is this service available @ Terminal 4 or should the luggage be carried from terminal 4 to terminal 3 and do check in?

2) Can my wife avail any assistance for doing the luggage check out and re-check in?

JFK_Specialist_...

1. She will need to check in at Terminal 3 for her second flight after passing Customs.
2. She should get some assistance from airport attendants. JFK_Specialist

You will need to pick up your luggage and pass it through Customs and recheck it for second flight with Delta. From T4 take any train on track 2 to T3.

I am flying from Boston to JFK Terminal 8 on April 3 on American Airlines. Flight arrives at 7:50pm. I need to make a connection with an El Al flight that leaves from Terminal 4 at 11:50pm. How is the best way to change terminals? Will I have enough time, given the security checks when I check in for the El Al flight?

JFK_Specialist_...

You have plenty of time for a connection. Do it by an air train on all terminal on track 2 to get from one terminal to the next.
