We are flying in from MX and need to go through customs, we are trying to get to a connecting flight that leaves in 1 hr from the time we land we have to get from terminal 4 to 6 is this doable? Please help with this our flight leaves in a few days... Thanks!

I will be doing this same thing, except coming in to JFK from a different airport. Is 1 hour enough time to change terminals and go through customs? Any information provided would be helpful. Thank you!

a party of four people, including a 92 y.o. grandmother, will be flying into j.f.k. on american airline (terminal 9) to connect with a lan flight (terminal 4) to chile. we have a two-hour layover, i'm wondering if this doable, giving the age of one of my companions. your reply is appreciated.

How can i get from Terminal 4 to Terminal 8 to reach my connecting flight?? How long does it take?

After picking up my luggage at Jet Blue Domestic baggage claim, how do I get to my international departure site on American Air, which I believe is in terminal 8?

Is any Visa required if one has to change terminals in order to catch the connecting flight at JFK. Pl lemme know!!!!

I will be arriving on a American flight at terminal 9 (MIA/JFK) at 10:55 Am..conjection flight CATHAY PACIFIC Flight 15:45 (JFK/HKG).How do I change in airports, is there any shuttle betwee them? It is no connection with terminal 9 & 7. Please kindly tell me?

My family are arriving at Newark just to change flights and disembark from JFK. How do we change airports, is there any shuttle betwee them?. Can we pass within security check. Do we have to go through immigration and check out and in luggage?
How long time do we need.

I just want to know what Terminal Number is (NWA) Northwest Airlines? I would appreciate any information.

We'll arrive at JFK on 8/3 lacsa 0660. At which terminal does this flight arrive?

We will be arriving on a Delta flight at terminal 3 at 1:10pm (I hope). Approximately how long will it take to disembark, pick up our luggage and get to terminal 1 (Olympic Airlines) for an international flight that leaves at 4:30pm? They told us that we would have to be at the Olypic check-in area at least 3 hours before the flight leaves. Also, what would be the fastest way to get from terminal 3 to terminal 1?
The flight we scheduled was the ONLY one available to us at the time/date we needed!

I'm doing the same thing at the end of this week, and any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated as I've never been to JFK. I don't know how to get from terminal 3 to 1, and I don't know if I have to go out to the Olympic ticket counter to get the boarding pass and then back through security, or if I can go directly to the Olympic gate to get the boarding pass. (I'm not checking luggage.) Thank you very much.

What transportation means is supplied at JFK airport to get from Terminal 8 to Terminal 4? After retrieving baggage what is the average time to travel between these two terminals?

Just wondering if I will have enough time to get off the plane, get my bag in terminal 4 after landing at 6:53pm, then get to terminal 6 to check in for an international flight that leaves at 9:45pm.

A reader of my blog directed me to this string. Here's my JFK rant...
