I have the same dilemma and am a bit nervous about it myself. Arriving in Terminal 5, Leaving from Terminal 7. Need to go though customs, re-check bag, and get to my flight with an hour and a half layover....is this enough time. NERVOUS. PLEASE HELP !!

I am flying with JetBlue from Fort Lauderdale--> T5 JFK airport.
Do I need go through an immigration check at T5 (I am not US citizen) or can I directly go to pick up my luggage?

You dont have to go through Immigration since you are flying domestic only.

hi i will be arriving at JFK by emirates fly at terminal 4 and then have to transit to terminal 4 for a domestic fly by Jet blue .Lay over time is 1 hr 40 min . I will have to go through immigration and customs and collect my luggage and checkin at terminal 5 for jet blue . Please let me know if the time is sufficient and how to transit from term 5 to term 4 as quickly as possible

You should be OK with that time frame. Take any train on track 2 from T5 to T4.

I will be arriving at terminal 4, having already cleared US customs and immigration in Dublin before flying. I am then flying from terminal 5 with Jet Blue, a code share partner with Aer Lingus and assume my luggage will be checked through with no need to reclaim in terminal 4?


i will be arriving at jfk on BA at about 11:00 AM on terminal 7.I have to then fly to pittsburgh at about 2:50 AM from terminal 8 which gives me 3 hours 50 minutes at hand.Would I be able to make this connection?

Of course.

I'm flying from AMS to JFK on a Delta flight, then need to connect to another Delta flight from JFK to Dayton, OH. Have no idea which terminals are involved. Since I'll be coming from abroad, I'll need to go through customs and recheck bags. What is the minimum amount of time I should leave in between the two flights? Thanks so much!

About 2 hours.

(What is the earliest time I can get there with a printed boarding pass for that morning)

Around 6AM.

I have an early flight and am working late at an event: is the terminal open 24 hours so that I can arrive at around 2am to check in and sleep in the terminal for a bit? (I would not want to sleep in the international terminal)
