I am meeting my Wife in NYC we both land at JFK via Jet Blue in Terminal 4, four hours apart. Can I wait in the terminal without exiting, or are you routing of the plane to the exit. Thank you in advance

Hi --

I am flying into JFK on Cathay Pacific arriving at 12:15 PM and need to get to Boston. I see flights on Jet Blue at 2:00 (14:00). It looks as if Cathay Pacific is in Terminal 7 and Jet Blue is in 5. Is this too little time?

Thank you.

You have enough time for that connection.

i m landing 8:47 am from Boston and have a connecting flight 9:32am to Costa Rica terminal 5 jet blue....will we mak e this flight? Thanks for all your help.

Very tight but possible if your first flight is on time.


I am flying from Jacksonville to India via JetBlue and Emirates. JetBlue flight reaches JFK Terminal 5 and the connection flight Emirates will be from Terminal 4. I have 2 Check-in baggage. Is it possible to do the single(througout) check-in from Jacksonville to India? Or do I need to re check-in @ Terminal 4?

Incase if there is no direct check-in option between these 2 terminals, it would be difficult go T4 from T5 in Train as in between the train stops there is long distance to walk.

Whats is the best way to transit between these 2 terminals without having stress of carrying 2 bigger check-in baggages?

Thanks in advance

Ask for that at Jacksonville airport.

I am flying from Boston to JFK via JetBlue, then Emirates from JFK to Dubai to Bangalore. According to the JetBlue website, when booking a joint ticket with JetBlue and one of its airline partners (in this case Emirates), when you check in, you can get boarding passes for each leg of your trip and your bags are checked through to their final destination. I'm assuming that the same is true on the reverse trip back to the States, but I'll have to check to be sure.

Hope this helps.

I am also flying from Boston to JFK via JetBlue, then Emirates from JFK to Dubai to mumbai, please let me know once you fly what happen

I am also taking a jetblue flight to jfk terminal 5 and then emirates to pakistan from terminal 4. you will have to get your baggage at terminal 5 in jfk and take it to terminal 4 to check in your bags again. but dont worry, when you are at the baggage claim pay the few bucks for a trolley for your bags so its easy to push around. the airtran is the easiest way getting to terminal 4 and the walk isnt that bad with the trolley.

I am taking a flight on a Saturday morning, 8:20am. I am planning on parking in long term parking. How long should I give myself to get from long term parking to airport using shuttle? Is it a hassle? and should my husband drop myself and my two young children at the terminal with the luggage before he parks the car?

There's an AirTrain station near long term parking which will take you to all terminals and it's free. Allow at least 15 minutes on AirTrain, trains run every 10 minutes or so. If you have lots of luggage it's a good idea to drop your family off at the terminal first.

Does JetBlue really demand that you arrive 2 hrs early for a flight to San Juan, PR? Or is it just suggested? Not looking forward to getting up at 4am!!

These flights are normally full and you'll need that much time to stand in line at check-in and at security. Better safe than sorry!

I arrive in Terminal 5 on a Jet Blue flight and have 40 minutes to get on my connecting flight on Iceland Air in Terminal 7-last minute need to get to Iceland. I have no checked bags and can run pretty fast, but is this do-able? I know the Airtran takes a few minutes-but-do I have to go through another security point? Does Iceland Air require any earlier check in? I have tried to call their customer service, but they are not open. Is there an in airport Iceland Air number I can call and let them know of my last minute check in?
Thank you much!!!
