Hi! I'll be arriving on the 22nd of Nov around 6pm with JetBlue from Bogota, Colombia and will take Cathay Pacific to Hong Kong at 10pm at Terminal 7 is there enough time for me with all the immigration thing and tranfers? do i have to take all my luggage and check them in again? and where is JetBlue now? I'm sorry but i'm just confuse with info here. I know it's still early but better early than late right. ;) and thank you in advance.

You have plenty of time. Since CX and Jet Blue do not have baggage transfer agreement you have to pick up the bags and take them to T7. Jet Blue from Bogota will arrive at T4 - from there go to the third floor and take Airtrain on track 2 - second stop is T7.

Just realized that the flight is actually two legged - one from Bogota to Fort Lauderdale(where you will clear US customs and US immigration) and second from FLL to JFK. So, at JFK you will arrive at T5 as a domestic flight.

I've been getting mixed signals. Is Terminal 5 now closed? I'm coming in on Jet Blue 714 from San Juan 10/20/10.

Hi. I am arriving from Las Vegas on Jet Blue at terminal 5 at 6:53pm and leaving on Jet Blue for portland me at 10:35pm. Is there a priority pass lounge close enough to access while I wait?

Dear Terminal 5 Employee,

I am arriving tomorrow to terminal 5 and I need to get to Terminal 4! I have 2 hours for checking in to the USA (I am not an US citizen) and to get to Terminal 4 and checking in to my plane back home! What is tha fastest way to do it? Should I go by taxi between the two terminals or is there any other possibility? Can I ask anybody there not to wait in the line because I have a shortage of time to reach the other plane?


You can take Airtrain between terminals; take train on track 2 one stop from T5 to T4, only takes about a minute.

Hello - I am flying home from Montego Bay, Jamaica on Sunday on flight # 780. My paperwork says Terminal 4, but will we be coming into Terminal 5? Is there a cell phone waiting area near terminal 5??

Jet Blue from Jamaica comes at T4. The cellphone lot is outside Central Terminal Area(~5min drive).

Hi we will be arriving in NY at 19.40hours on the 3rd Sept from FRANKFURT on flight no LH0404. Are there any weather warnings so far that might delay the flights and landing in New York? We are noticing that some hurricanes may hit the US East Coast and were wondering whether this will cause delays.

Too early to know where and when the hurricane will go. Check with your airline for any weather-related updates regarding your flight.

I'm flying from Richmond International with JetBlue on 9/11/10, and I have to connect at JFK (my flight departs to O'Hare, which is my destination.) This will be the first time I have flown alone, and I'm flying with my 1 year old daughter. She is flying with me as a lap infant. I'm carrying 1 suitcase as a checked bag. I have a few different flight related questions.
1- When I land at JFK, what will happen to my baggage between RIC/JFK/ORD?
2- Will I be allowed to fly with her diaper bag and my carry-on? She is still on powdered formula.
3- I need to fly with an umbrella stroller (one of the small strollers; no frills, just a simple, thin, small fold-up). What are the restrictions there, and will I be able to carry that? It is a needed "assistive device" with her.

1- You flying on one airline both flights so most likely Jet Blue will check your bag all the way through. Which means you don't have to deal with it at JFK. Double check this with Jet Blue at RIC.
2- Yes, most airlines allow you to carry two items on the plane
3- The stroller is usually checked free as a "baby item". The exception here is that you can check the stroller at the gate(since you will need it).
And the stroller will be delivered to you at the time of disembarking the plane.

Just asking to clarify, that way I'm not confused.
Once I check my bag in at RIC, I won't need to deal with nor see it again until I pick it up at ORD, correct?
When I go to board the plane at RIC and JFK, they take the stroller, and I get it from them when I leave the plane at my destinations, correct?
Sorry, just want to make sure I understand clearly.
