Hi~I will arrive at JFK terminal 8 at 2:55pm, then take a 4:35pm connection flight to China at terminal 1. Is 1 hour 40 min enough?

Kind of tight. Hope the first flight is not late and you have your boarding pass for your second flight.

1.what about if I missed the connection flight? I heard that if someone missed the connection flight, the airline company will gave him another ticket for free. Is that true?
2. If I have the borading pass for the next flight, do I have to go through all the security check one more time?

1. If you have the two flights on one ticket(which I assume so) it is the first airline's responsibility to bring you on time for the second flight.And if the flight is late they will rebook you for the next connecting flight with no penalties.
2. Even if you have boarding pass you still have to undergo security check since you are changing buildings.

I am not sure about the two flights on one ticket thing. I booked the flights on Orbitz. They gave me the combination of flights. The first flight is operated by AA, then second is operated by China Eastern. Does that count "two flights on one ticket"?
Thank you

Usually the websites like Orbitz book their customers on one ticket.

we are arriving by Jet Airways from India at Terminal 8 and need to go over to terminal 3 to get a Delta airline connection to Rochester. We have about 3 hours to catch the connecting flight. Do we have to go through customs at JFK even though we are booking our check in baggage to Rochester? Will three hours be adequate to finish customs and go to terminal 3? How do we get to terminal 3 from terminal 8?

You will clear customs at JFK. Three hours is plenty of time. Take Airtrain on the second floor of T8, on track 2 to Terminal 3 . It is couple of minutes free ride.

we are arriving at Terminal 8 from Toronto at 9:50pm via AA. Our 1st of 3 connecting flights to Cambodia departs from Terminal 1 at 11:55pm. 3 questions:

  • (a) Will we have to clear customs at JFK as well?(I believe we clear customs in Toronto before boarding the 1st plane -We are Canadian)
  • b) Do we have to pick up our luggage and then head to terminal 1 to check in again?(we fly China Airlines for the last 2 legs of our flight to Cambodia)
  • c) Will we have enough time to get to the next terminal? How long should this all take, generally speaking?

Thank you!

a.) You are right - the flights from Canada pre-clear customs there.
b.) Double check with AA if they checked through your bags. If they did - the bags will be transfered automatically.
c.)You have plenty of time - it takes via Airtrain 8 min to get from T8 to T1(add another 10 min walking to/from stations).

I will be arriving at terminal 8 JFK by JetAirways on 05/19 at noon. My AA connecting flight is at 17:00 in Terminal 8. How do I get from international to domestic terminal?


AA and Jet Airways share the same terminal - Terminal 8.
Just go to the third floor for security clearance after you clear customs.

I am flying AA from Bermuda to JFK. Do I land in Terminal 8, and am i in domestic, as immigration is done in Bermuda?

Your flight will be arriving as a domestic in Terminal 8.
