Hello,
I've the same connection:
As immigrant to USA, I'm arriving JFK from Belgium April 05 at 12:40 with AA and have a connecting flight to Raleigh with American Eagle at 03:50pm.
Should i have to take my luggages during this connection?
Do I have enough time for this transit?
Please, tell me step by step the process I have to complete there.

You should be fine, but if you are coming first time as a green card/work visa holder, then your time spent in immigration will be more than usual. Yet, I think you should be fine with >3hours .
First you go through immigration, then you pick up your bags and go through customs.
Right after you exit customs there is AA connecting flights counter where you can transfer your bags to the next flight.
All you have to do after that is just go upstairs to the third floor and proceed through security checkpoint to the gate.

I'm arriving this Friday, March 19th, at Terminal 1 (Air China flight 981)at 2:30pm and have a flight to Mexico City (Mexicana flight 3) at 6:15pm from Terminal 8.
1. Do I have to claim my baggage & clear customs at Terminal 1, then check in again at Terminal 8?
2. How do I go from Terminal 1 to Terminal 8? Is there a Shuttle? How long would it take?
3. I am bringing a big suitcase, so I am wondering if I have enough time for the transfer between terminals?
Thanks.

Hi Jona,

1. First , once you pass the customs at T1 look for connecting flights counter for Air China. There you might be able to transfer your bags onto your next flight. If you choose, you can also carry your bags to T8 and check them in there.
2. Use Airtrain which is free between terminals. At T1 go to the third floor and follow the signs to the Airtrain platform. Take ANY train on track 2. Get off the next stop and that would be Terminal 8. It will take you no more than couple of minutes.
3. Your time is more than enough for that.

Hi there,
I'll be arriving on friday 26 th marche at Terminal 8 at 23:05 and have a flight to GEO on Caribbean Airlines at 01:15 from Terminal 4.
1. Would I have to claim my baggage & clear customs at Terminal 8, then check in again at T4?
2. Is 2 hrs enough time for that and transfer between terminals?
Many thanks

1. Assuming you are coming on domestic flight at T8 - yo claim you bags there and you can transfer them there as well. You can check in you bags at T4 if you choose to do so( and carry them between the terminals)
2. Two hours should be fine as long as your AA flight is on time.

Hi,
no we are comming from Vienna via London Heathrow. Does this change anything?

Then you will clear immigration, pick up your bags and clear customs at T8. Flying international will make it a little bit tight time wise but you will be fine with 2 hours period.

PATLBAM-We are 5 mature adults due to arrive by Delta at 2:00 PM on Sun 5/9 and need to get ourselves and our checked luggage from that terminal to the terminal for an American Airlines International flight due to depart at 5:30 PM.
#1: will we have time to deplane, collect our luggage, take the air train from terminal 2 to terminal 9, check in, clear security and get to our flight with a minimum of anxiety?
#2: since two of us 5 are in wheelchairs, is there any type of assistance for us and our luggage for this transfer from terminal 1 or 2 to terminal 8 or 9?
#3: is the air train our best approach? or would a taxi or two be more efficient, given the above details?
I appreciate any helpful comments.

Hi,

#1 Three hours and half is plenty time to do that. One correction - AA is located at Terminal 8.
#2 There are baggage handlers at Delta that will help you with that. Just make sure you request one as soon as you land(speak to Delta Rep for that).
#3 The taxi is less worrisome choice but there will be another problem - you have to request a wheelchair accessible taxis(two in your case) and they are scarce at JFK.
One advice - check with Ground transportation agents in the Terminal for other, more efficient options.

I'm looking for information about this flight. It's delayed and I don't know if its departure will be from JFK airport or Boston airport due to bad weather conditions.
Thanks

Hi,

I will be reaching JFK Terminal 8 at 1:40 pm through Jet Airways and my connecting flight is at 7:00 pm through Delta at Terminal 3.

Is there any Delta counter after customs in Terminal 8?

Also if I have to take bags and go to Delta counter at Terminal 3 what route I need to follow and how easy it is?

Thanks

There is no Delta counter at T8. There is connecting flights counter for AA(or Jet Airways) after customs and that is the one you should go to. Use free Airtrain to transfer between the terminals.
