I’m arriving from Chile in LA 532 at 7:40 AM, and have a connection to Toronto at 11:05, but I check an early flight (AA 3618) which leaves at 9:00 AM, do I have enough time to get this flight to Toronto at 9 AM? Thank you very much.

You should be OK with your connection.

From London I take a British Airways flight that arrives at JFK Terminal 7 at 2235 hrs. My onward flight is by American Airlines departing at 0805 hrs from Terminal 8 (I may not have a boarding card for this flight & will have to check-in for it separately). My question is: Is it possible for me to spend the time between flights at the airport itself? Is it permissible? Safe? Where can I sit?

Anywhere at T4 which is open 24/7.

I am picking up my mother in JFK on Tuesday May 8. She is arriving from HK on CX888. From there, I will join her on AA 3826 to DCA at 1.05 pm same day.

As she is 86 years old and traveling alone, can I request for a special pass to meet her at the gate so that I can accompany her from the time she disembarks from the plane through to immigration and customs?

Also, does she check through her luggate inside the customs inspection area or does she exit with her luggage and then check in at the AA domestic departure counter?


Thanks JFK Specialist. On my other question, how can I request for a special pass so that I can meet her at the gate upon disembarking from the plane?

She will recheck her bags after clearing Customs at T8.
