You should have enough time for your connection.

We are landing at 1725 on 21 April at Terminal 7 with BA. We are catching a Jet Blue flight from Terminal 5. How long do we need to allow to get through security, collect our luggage and drop it off again?

Around 2 hours.

Dear JFK Specialist:

My flight from Detroit to JFK on Delta airlines arrives at Terminal 3 at 17:31 pm and I have a flight on UA to Geneva that departs at 19:25 pm same day. Is the 2 hour break enough for me to get to the UA gate which I assume is in Terminal 7 departing to Geneva?

I hope to check in my bag to Geneva when I am in Detroit. That should be possible right? Please advise.



Hi Magz. Your bags should be clipped to your final destination.Make sure you ask for that in Detroit. Yes United Airlines departs from Terminal 7. 2 hour time window is enough for you to make your connection to Geneva.

I arrive on US Air from Phoenix at 4:52(terminal 7)and depart on BA (operated by AA) at 5:50 (Terminal 8). Is that enough time?

It is very tight. Make sure your bags are checked all the way to your final destination and you have boarding passes for all your flights. Quickly once you get into terminal 7 arrivals hall go to the building outside to the 3rd floor catch an air train on track 2 from T7 to T8. You will need to clear security again at terminal 8. Hopefully your flight is on time. You may also talk to the original airline about their policy in case you dont make it on time and what can be done for you.

HI ,,
I am going to a business trip to Orlando FL.
i'll be arriving (on American Airlines) from London, at Terminal 7 at 11:00 am. my flight(on American Airlines) will depart at 3:20 pm(at terminal 8) to Orlando INTL FL.
My question is:
Since this is a transit situation, just for connecting flights, do i have to go through security and custom immigration when i arrive in NY? or just in Orlando?
How long it takes to reach Terminal 8 from terminal 7 ?
do i need to collect my luggage? or the AA will reconnect my bags?


You will clear Customs at JFK. It takes about 2 minutes on an air train. You will need to collect your luggage and recheck them with AA for your second flight.

Hello! How long is the distance between T7 and 8? How long would it take to get from one to another - by foot or by train?

By an air train on track 2 from t7 to t8.

Is it possible to arrive by CA at terminal 1 at 1420 to catch a flight operated by AA at terminal 8 at 1740? I have to go through passport control, baggage claim, taking boarding pass and go from Terminal 1 to 8?


Will I have enough time to arrive at 7:05PM from Madrid with Iberia to Terminal 7 and make it to Terminal 3 for a Delta flight to DCA at 7:59PM, booked separately? Or would it be better to book an LGA flight that leaves at 8:50PM to IAD? Could I make either of those?

You should be fine as long as your first flight arrives on time.
