My daughter is arriving at 9:30 am from Dulles on Flight 7342 South Africa airlines operated by Jet Blue. She will need to go to Terminal 4 to catch an 11:15 Flight 204, South Africa Airlines. Will her luggage be checked through or does she need to claim her luggage and go through customs? Is customs in Terminal 4? If her luggage is not checked through will she have enough time to make her 11:15 flight?

Since her first flight is domestic she doesnt have to clear Customs or Immigration. Jetblue and South African Airways dont have a luggage agreement so she will have to pick up her luggage at terminal 5 and check it with South African Airways at terminal 4 check in counter. She should be in a good shape as long as her first flight is on time.

I have a similar situation. My son will be arriving on JetBlue at JFK Terminal 5 and has to make his way alone to Terminal 4 to the KLM check-in desk. He will have a heavy duffel bag that he will have to get from Terminal 5 to Terminal 4. My question is whether carts are allowed on the Airtran. If he needs help getting his large bag to Terminal 4, what are his options? Thanks.

Yes he can get the cart on the air train. If he needs extra help at Terminal 4 inquire with KLM Royal Dutch airlines.

Thank you for your response. It was very helpful.

Thanks so much for your answer. It's a great help.

For a friday night flight (9ish) how will the security lines be? How much time should I leave to check in?

Show up for any flight at least 2 hours before your scheduled departure. Lines at night are usually not busy.

how many hour before flight the check in counter for Jetblue will open in terminal 5 please ? thanks

It should open 2 hours before the actual departure time.

I will be arriving from Austin to JFK with jetBlue (ETA 5:17 pm - I'm guessing terminal 5) and continuing to Europe (Budapest) with a Delta flight (ETD 7:40 pm). Would this time be enough to go through all troubles in order to reach the other flight? (I am not quite sure which one the departing terminal will be for the Delta flight, but most likely T3.)
Thanks for any help.

Yes you should be in a good shape.

Do ALL of Jet Blue's flights come into T5? Or do some still come into T4? i want to set up for someone to be met upon arrival.


Terminal 5 only.
