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



Dear JFK specialist,
My wife, daughter amnd myslef will be arriving on Saturday from London with BA at terminal 7, while our 17 year old son will arrive 2 hours later from Amterdam with KLM at terminal 4, and we would like to agree on a meeting point at terminal 4, if possible before the passport control in case our son has some problem due to arriving alone. Do we have to wait for him at the arrival hall or is there a better way to avoid problems at the passport control?

Best regards,


Hi Anders, In my opinion, after you get off your flight from London, You should meet your son at the International Arrivals hall at Terminal 4. I don't think there will be much of a problem as long as yours and his flight is on time. Just the Arrivals board in Terminal 4.

Glad to help!

We are leaving toronto and arriving at LaGuardia @ 7PM Leaving JFK #4 @ 10:50 for Abu Dhabi, our Daughter is @ NYU there, we are a bit worried about the transfer time.

I have family flying to see us via JFK but haven't heard from her Is it possible to call the airport to locate her/page her? We are very worried b/c she arrived 4 hours ago. This is very unlike her to not inform us and she travels frequently.

Hello JFK Specialist!
I will fly to LA through NY in the next June. I'll come from Budapest, Hungary, and I have to wait 5h 20 min the next flight. My question is: should I try to get NYC and see something, or I should wait in the JFK? I'm from Hungary!

Five hours is not enough time to leave the airport for sightseeing, stay at the airport between flights.

How can I move from terminal 4 to terminal 7 as soon as possible.

By an air train of course. Take it on track 2 from terminal 4 to terminal 7.

Thanks for the replay..

On the 3rd floor of your terminal.

Correction it is terminal 8. Take any train on track 1 terminal loop from terminal 8 to terminal 4.

Good Day,
I'll be arriving to terminal 4 via LAN Chile. I bought two American Airlines tickets in Chile from NYC to D.C but not together ( indepently, not as connection flights). I know I have to get to terminal 8 for the AA( american eagle operated) flight.

1) After immigration , where should I drop my luggage..directly at the AA counter con Terminal 8 ?

2) Where should I get my boarding pass..at the AA counter in T8?

3) Where do I pick up the Air Train to T8?
Thank you

2. Terminal 8
3. On the 3rd floor of terminal 4 take any train on track 1 from T4 to T8.

I was stuck there in terminal 4 this past holiday weekend. No hotels rooms in NYC?!?! All things considered..the people of terminal 4 at JFK were most valiant! Most places operated 2+ hour past closing time and employees maintained an upbeat spirit. I was among the 300+ stranded there Saturday into Sunday. Many were concerned, but JFK security and NYPD kept things safe for the masses to rest a bit. All plans were washed, but THANK YOU JFK and NYC for making the situation bearable. I hope to return one day, for a real trip.

we are dropping off my son before an international flight out of Term 4 and want to know if there are any restaurants or coffee shops where we can hang out before he has to go through security?

Terminal 4 has nice pre security restaurants, shopping malls and food courts.

I will be flight from MSP to JFK on 10/6 i will be traveling with delta with two large dogs each weighing 120 lbs with kennel, and arriving on delta and transfering to Aerosvit Airlines, will my dogs be transfer to Aerosvit Airlines from delta or do I have transfer them myself?

Ask at MSP airport before your flight to JFK but most likely yes.

Our DELTA flight from the UK DL155 is due to arrive at JFK @ 1:55 PM EDT,
Our connecting flight to SFO DL127 is due to leave JFK @ 3:15 PM EDT.
This leaves just 80 minutes to clear customs, collect baggage, change terminals, check in baggage, get boarding pass & board flight DL127.
Will we have enough time to make the connection ?

You should be in a fine shape as long as your first arriving flight is on time.

Hi there

I will arrive by myself with three 23 Kg bags that I beieve will fit on one trolley on a TACA flight at 01.30 am. I will need to take a BA flight to London Heathrow at 08.00 am same day. Probably without my lugggage checked all the way to London.

Are there trolleys available right next to the luggage conveyor in T4 for international arrivals ?

Is there likely to be a bag drop off for British Airways in T4 at 02.00 am should I have my luggage checked all the way ?

I assume I could alternatively take an elevator to the inter treminal train at Level 3 pushing my trolley with three bags on it into the train and all the way to BA check in ?

Appreciate your reply.

Yes yes and yes.

Hello!Could you tell me the fastest way to get from T4 to T8. Between flights I have 2.4 hours, is this enough time to make immigration, customs and get my luggage at T4 (arriving from Kiev, Ukraine) and then to check in American Airlines (Terminal 8) again for my flight to Tampa,Florida?. Thank you.

You have enough time for that connection. From terminal 4 take any train on track 2 to terminal 8.

I am flying in on Caribbean Airlines and then catching a connecting flight 11 hours later on Etihad airlines. What I would like to know is if it is possible to check in with Etihad without having to clear immigration as I don't have a USA visa.

No its not. You will have to clear US immigration and Customs since you arriving outside the U.S and then you will check in with Ethihad Airways for your second flight.

I have stored my luggage at storage facility at arrival of Terminal 4 . Now how I have a flight to catch from other Terminal .
How do I collect the baggage and travel to other terminal. Is there a air train from luggage storage are to other terminals

There is an Airtrain running between all the terminals

Hello, could you please inform on the expected time and date of JFK reopening. Please advise, whether the airport reopening time is directly dependent on the time of MTA services functioning.

It is open today Monday August 29th 2011.

My sister and her friend (Div) had arrived at T4 JFK yesterday. Their next flight to Columbus from JFK has been cancelled and rescheduled by AA. They have to board their flight at LGA on 29th as confirmed by AA. We're worried because we couldnt reach them by phone nor we know the status at JFK as they are new to the US.

Is there a way to contact people at T4 lounge in JFK?


Hello, is it possible after arriving to go to the lounge. I have to wait for a friend. She arrives 4 hours later. Thanks

I will arrive on Wednesday in JFK Terminal 4 and i have to wait 4 hours for a friend. Is it possible to wait in a lounge? and where is the best to wait. I have a priority pass. Thanks.

You can enjoy shopping malls and food courts at terminal 4.
