Need to get from T1 (Flying with Air France) to Jamaica Station as quick as possible.. is the airtrain 1 way?
Ive seen replies of getting on at track 2 to get to T8, would that be quicker than going via all the terminals? Or is there a train to Jamaica station as T1 is also the first (or last) station on the map.
Please advise quickest route, thanks. Adam.

Is there a usual gate from which Finnair flight 6 departs or is it random?

Hello, I will arrive from Moscow on Aeroflot March 24 at JFK Terminal 1 at 18:10 .I will coming on a K-1( fiance) visa. Next my flight to Denver from Terminal 4 at 20:20.Is this enough time to clear customs, immigration, check my 2 bags and not miss my next flight please?
Thx in advance

In my experience no. Without baggage, just your carry-on, it is easier.

Hello, please could you tell me how long it takes to travel between terminals 7 and 8? I am flying from the UK to JFK, then need to catch a connecting flight to Austin, TX. How long does it usually take to get through immigration and passport control?
Many thanks for your help

I'm flying AA on October 4th to JFK from GIG (Rio de Janeiro - Brazil) and I will arrive at T8 at 6:45 am. My next flight Delta is at 11:15 am at T4 to MCO, enough time to get though immigration and custums. The question is: My luggage should be clipped in GIG STRAIGHT to final destination (MCO) despite begin different airline companies ?

Hi There,

I will be flying from LAS to JFK Landing at JFK at 5:49 if no delays.
My flight back to Johannesburg on Virgin leaves at 7:40.

Will there be enough time at JFK to get into Terminals, check in luggage and get onto 7:40 plane without rushing myself to death?


I arrive on a sunday at 6:40 pm at JFK from an international flight and would like to go on to Boston the same day. I will have to go international tax visa etc... and am concerned how long this might take. there are several offers for connecting flights to Boston, starting at 20:25 ... 21:00, till 22:55 pm... (the latest would probably be ok but of course it would be great not to arrive at Boston at midnight) how much time should I allow for to go through customs formalities, two security checks, transfer to other terminals etc... which connecting flight should I chose?

Would really appreciate knowing how long it will take to get from terminal 7 to 4? I have one hour... I called JFK, but I can't get a live person. \very much appreciated it you can get back to via email or post the details.

Hey all.
My wife and I left two fairly large packages outside the delta check in at terminal 4. The contents were our wedding gifts from our American family. They were two wooden fold out chairs in one package and a metal container with 3 vintage air vents for a boat. I have called lost and found and they weren't handed in. We are guessing that someone took them. We are willing to pay a reward for them, my cousin lives in NYC and can collect from whoever found them. They mean a great deal to us. Any information please contact [email protected]
Many thanks. Joe

The constant announcement on the PA about keeping your belonging with you at all times and not leaving anything unattended is there for a good reason.

I am from India and going to toronto. do not have visa of US. Please advice is there requirement of any transit visa at JFK airpot. also advice my lay over time between flight at JFK is 4 hours, whether this is enough time.

My unaccompanied teenage nieces are flying from Europe arriving at 19:50 on Lufthansa airlines, T1, I believe. They have to catch a flight with JetBlue at 21:25 in T5. This gives them 1 hour and 35 minutes to connect. Do you have advice on how they can get through customs quickly in order to make it to their next flight. We aren't sure if we can check their luggage all the way through due to the two different airlines. They are US citizens and this will be their first time through customs, etc... Thanks.
