if i land in terminal 3 at 4:00pm, will i have time to get to terminal 4 for 5:30 takeoff?


****Illegal connection alert****
Minumum connection time is 2 hours.

3 Issues

* If your airline is arriving on time, if delayed you will miss your connection.

* Tickets(Big issue and travel agencies love doing this) They try to sell you 2 seperate tickets because they will make more profit - and the price of the ticket maybe less so the customer goes for it. Little does the customer know that if the domestic flight is delayed and you missed your connection you are stranded in JFK... Example:

Seperate ticket ok..

Miami to New York on American
New York to Frankfurt on Delta...

Contract is stated point to point so, American airlines bought you to New York ( do any airlines gurantee arrival times NOPE!!!) they have forfilled their contract by bring you to New York. But you missed your flight to Frankfurt. American will NOT help you at all.

on Delta you would have to pay a date change fee and probably stay overnight in a hotel (which you have to pay for).

* Last issue is check in time most airline close check in one hour before their flight..

Sorry, Kinda wrote a book here But its true..
