I plan to travel from Europe to Panama City through NY. I should come to JFK and leave from Newark. What do you think about normal connecting time between these two airports in working day in winter and at noon. Would be 4:15 hour sufficient?


Hi, I am arriving at JFK on 16th Nov night (9:40PM) by Delta Airlines.
My next flight from JFK on 17th Nov morning (10:40AM) by Emirates Airlines.
My whole trip is on a single ticket, as the airlines share a code.
Now, as my layover is about 13 hrs, can I do a through baggage checkin, so that I can go outside the airport lighter.
If yes, how should I confirm that they actually have taken care of my baggages for the onward journey.
If no, can I collect the baggage(from terminal 3) and again check them back in(terminal 4, Emirates counter) on 16th night itself ? Would the Emirates staff be present at counter to collect my belongings ?
What is the airport policy regarding baggage check-in and how early can I checkin the baggage provided through check-in is not an option.

I would not suggest allowing your luggage to go completely through to your final destination. Would you leave your baggage unattended for 13 hours? If you can leave your luggage for a small fee, I would suggest on that, if not take it with you!

Theres a baggage storage in terminal 1 & 4 for a minimal fee, which is worth the cost

Why is there no information about teh current security breach causing an evacuation? We have family there and want to know what's going on!

A passenger breached security at John F. Kennedy International Airport and boarded a plane to Albany, causing terminals to be evacuated and passengers to be re-screened, the federal Transportation Security Administration said.

The passenger walked up an exit lane past a private security guard at terminal two at about 6:40 p.m. Tuesday, the TSA said.

The guard could not immediately locate the passenger and notified the TSA of the security breach, sparking a wide search for the man at terminals two and three, the federal agency said.

"He was going through the exit lane. That's going the wrong way," TSA spokesman Norm Brewer said. "As I understand it, he was challenged and stopped. And then what happened, I do not know. He at some point ended up beyond that exit approach and the rest is sort of history."

The passenger was later suspected of being onboard a Delta Air Lines flight to Albany, where he disembarked and was detained by the county sheriff's department Tuesday night, the TSA said. The man, who was being questioned by local and federal authorities, has not been identified.

The Albany Sheriff's Department did not immediately respond to a call early Wednesday.

The TSA said in a statement on its Web site that "there is no known nexus to terrorism at this time."

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates the airport, did not immediately return a call.

Aviation Safeguards, a division of Command Security Corporation, operates private security at JFK airport, Brewer said.

Calls early Wednesday to both entities, as well as Delta Air Lines, were not immediately returned.

Why is their a security breach at JFK??

I am trying to find out what the rules re when travelling with a pet dog. He will travel with me from Guyana to New York but as cargo. He then needs to move to another airline for an onward trip to London. Are there any companies at JFK that facilitate this ie meet the dog and arrange onward flights ?

You can travel with a dog with American Airlines only if the temperature is below 85 and above 45. You can travel with a pet at any time with continental because the cabin is temperature controlled. Good luck.

We are from Germany and will arrive next September at JFK with our dog. Can anybody tell me, where I will get my dog back and how long she has to stay in her cage, before we can let her out? Is there anybody to care for her (providing water for example) until we get through the passportcontrol?
Ist there any place nearby for her to do her "business" after the flight?
Please email me, if you have some helpful informations about the treating of dogs at the JFK airport. Thanks alot
