Hello, my friends are going back home to Japan from Lima Peru. They are fliying on Lan Peru to JFK and then changing planes to All Nippon (ANA) to Tokyo. The question is, that they are two adults and an infant, with more than 6 luggages and they are traveling with their dog. What I understand is that they will be arriving at terminal 4 and will be departuring at terminal 7. They know they will have to pick all their luggage up including the pet and go to the next counter to check in. They want to know if they have to carry their luggage to terminal 7 and if they have time to walk their dog. And please if you could also tell me where is the place they can walk the dog. Thank you

Hi, my husband and I are flying into JFK on different airlines and arrive in Terminal 1 (my flight on Lufthansa) and Terminal 4 (his flight from Dublin on AerLingus). What/where is the best place to meet? Can either of us take the Airtrain to go meet the other? If so, how much time is needed for that?

Terminal 4 arrivals hall by the Welcome Center.

My family and I will be arriving in terminal 3 at 16.35 pm on Delta. We will depart terminal 3 at 19.15 pm, also on Delta. Is this enough time to make the connecting flight? Since we will arrive and depart from terminal 3, will we need to go through security at any point?

No need to go through security. You have plenty of time to connect.

We arrive JFK at terminal 3 on Delta at 3:20 pm and depart terminal 8 at 5:40 pm on Finnair. Our bags are checked through from Ord to Hel but have to check in at desk at JFK and get boarding passes since the airlines are in different families. Questions-

1. Do we have to go through security in transferring to term. 8, particularly if
we use Airtrain?

2 Is 2 hr. 20 min. enough to transfer terminals and check in at Finnair , which
recommends 3 hours.


1.Yes you will clear security again.
2. You should have enough time.

I fly out of Terminal 5 and my cousin flies out of Terminal 7 Can she check in with me at Terminal 5 and then later go to her terminal?


I am traveling with my children from SFO to JFK with Delta 30 and then to Zurich with Delta 206. We only have 1hr and 15 min. in between flights. My questions are:
1. Will our connecting flight to Zurich from JFK be in the same terminal?
2. Will we have enough time for our next flight?

1. It will most likely be T 2/3 and it involves walking distance of about 5 to 10 minutes between the terminals.
2.If it takes place in the same Terminals 2/3 then you have enough time.

Our flight arrives at 3.25 pm at treminal 3 from Toronto with Delta. Our next flight leaves at 5.10 pm to Stockholm from terminal 5.

1. Do we need to clear customs?
2. Will we have enligt time?

Thank you in advance!


1.You will pre clear customs in Canada.
2. You should have enough time for your connection.

I have a few questions..
My sister will arrive form China tomorrow to JFK terminal 1 in the flight CA981 and wil connect to Bogota in terminal 3 in flight DL395.
1. How is the process to pick up the baggage.
2. Is necessary to make the immigration process or is only transit status
3. Two hours is enough time to move between terminal 1 and 3.
4. What is the best way to move between those terminals?
Thank you.
