We are flying into JFK on BA from LHR, connecting to a AA flight to Tampa. Two questions; 1. Do we have to collect our luggage at JFK to re-check them for AA flight? 2. What is the best way to transfer to AA terminal from T7? Thanks

Yes all international flights must clear customs with the first US port of entry which means you must pick up your luggage. Afterwards the airline will reconnect your bags if you have 90 minutes between flights. Follow the signs for the airtrain, once on, 1 stop over to Terminal 8 which is American Airlines.

I am picking up a passenger that will be arriving from RIO. Flight AA974 It appears they will be arriving at Terminal 8. Since they will not have a cellphone that is operational in US; I wanted to check and see where the best place to arrange to meet would be? I am not from the NY area so any additional help you could provide such as where I should park, how to get to the location, and how much time to allow would also be appreciated.

Terminal 8 arrivals hall is the best place to meet and greet.

Hi, is the Finnair wright to Helsinki on time today?

I am flying in by AA from Toronto, arriving at around 3.30 pm and my connection to Helsinki by Finnair is at 5.40 pm or so. Is this sufficient time? Do I have to check out my luggage and check it back in, go through Security etc. I am a Canadian citizen and am also cleared under NEXUS. Would appreciate some advice on this. Thanks.

First answer is yes. You will clear Customs in Canada and security at JFK Airport and in Canada.

Lost a black berry torch on the flight from barbados that landed 7:20pm yesterday 1/24. I have not gotten a live person or a call back and I have been calling for 2 DAYS!!!! Awful service

Wath is the best route between terminal 8 to 7

An air train on track 1.

Priceless vacation photos
Monday Jan. 23 arrival at AA Terminal 8, lost black camera case, orange liner with Sony digital camera inside, along with several chargers. The camera has photos from vacation that we would hate to lose -- we were on flt. 1080 from Turks & Caicos and left the case near the baggage carousel.thank you for any help you can provide!

Hola! El 16 de febrero llegaremos con un vuelo proveniente de Miami de AA 2086 a las 9.05 PM, para tomar otro con destino Buenos Aires de AA 0955 a las 10.15 PM. LLegaremos a tiempo teniendo 1 hora con 10 minutos de tiempo??

No hablar espanol yo hablar ingles.

the only flight into JFK from St. Lucia arrives at 8:21pm (American Airlines -believe terminal 8)- the only flight out that night leaves at 9:59 (Jet Blue - believe terminal 5) - giving us only 1hr 38min to go through customs - get bagage - check in with Jet Blue - and make it to terminal. Only other option is flying out next morning and would hate to have to pay hotel stay.

You should have enough time if your first flight is on time.
