does anyone know when the security checkpoints open in Terminal 8?

Im arriving to terminal 8 on American Airlines from NC @ 3:55pm. Going to Barcelona, Spain @ 7pm on the same airline. Do I need to claim my luggage and recheck it at customs even though Im flying with the same airline?

American will check your luggage all the way through to your destination

I'm a Brit travelling from london to peru (transfering through JFK)with two Polish friends.

They have a promisery note for Visas from there embassey that they will have to get at JFK.

How long will this take approx and where do we go when we get there?

We have a two and a half hour stop over.

I'd be grateful for any info. Adam

I will be waiting for your answer

I'm flying from Helsinki to JFK October 7th. My flight arrives at 15.55. My flight to Dallas leaves at 17.10. Both of these flights leave from terminal 8. How far away are the gates? Is it possible to walk or is there a tram? There is not so much time between those flights and I'm a little worried about that.

I hope you make it... I assume you are using AA, if so, it is the same terminal, easy to navigate - however, you will have to clear Customs. I frequently travel internationally and from gate arrival to customs clearance is about 1 hour, maybe more depending on how busy they are. My advice is to speak with your fight attendant and alert them of your situation so you can be one of the first to exit the aircraft and also ask them to alert your flight regarding your tight timeline. Good Luck!

My flight arrives into T4 at JFK at approx 16:00 and I have a connecting flight from T7 JFK at 18:00 with United. Can you advise how I can quickly transfer from t4 to t7. Thanks

You can take the airtrain to from terminal 4 to 7 which is faster. also, you need to follow the signs for Airtrain.

My flight AA 292 will depart from Chicago to Delhi at 1915 and I will be reaching Chicago by AA 1101 at 1755 from Boston. Is one hour enough time for the transit?
