Hi, I fly from Vancouver to JFK on red-eye on Apr 18th. I land at 0700H and have to clear customs.

My connecting flight is Delta to Washington DC at 0820H

With only one carry on, will I clear customs and make the connection?

Thank you

You will clear Customs in Vancouver Canada. You have a tight connection but you will make it if your first flight is on time.
