You should have enough time. If your first flight is domestic your bags should be clipped to final destination if not you will need to pick up your bags and check them through Customs. You would have to wait up to 30 minutes for your luggage.

My wife will be arriving on Copa Airlines at around 12:30 am with our 3 year old. I'm afraid that at that time our son might be sleepy or not want to walk to immigration. My wife is petite with a weak back and can't carry him plus the carryon. Can we request help? A cart? Wheelchair? Would I be able to enter the luggage area to receive my son while she gets the luggage? We used a stroller the last time but didn't get it until we got to the luggage area. Thanks

After clearing Customs there are carts.


I will be arriving at JFK by 8:15 with Emirates. I have seen in April 25 and 26's flight status that Emirates arrival isn't what it was estimated, arriving past 9:00am. Is this always like this?

I plan on taking NYC Airporter from JFK to Port Authority to catch my bus departing at 1:00pm.

Will I have sufficient time?



Hi Specialist,

I just booked a flight arriving on Emirates at JFK T4 at 8:15am and need to catch the connecting flight on Delta at JFK T3 at 11am.

Will this time be sufficient for baggage collection and recheck-in? Or respectively how much time is normally required for this procedure in case my EK flight gets delayed?

Thanks for your advice!

You have plenty of time to connect. Allow usually 2 to 3 hours between the flights.

I am travelling to Mexico for work from Terminal 1. I need to register professional equipment (demo equipment) for the trip.

1) Can i go a couple of days before my flight to Terminal 4 to register the equipment? Or , does it have to be the same day as my flight?

Thanks in advance.

The same day for your flight only.

I need to go to the LAN Peru office at JFK to take care of some paperwork . I assume they have an office and not just a checkin counter. Correct? Is this located in terminal 4 and what time do they open/close today? Today isSaturday April 7th.... Thanks.

They dont have an office just check in counter.

My husband will be arriving at 2:15 PM from DXB and needs to clear customs. I am driving 5 hours to the airport. For my driving time departure, how much time should I allow for him to clear customs? Thank you.

Around an hour or so.

Hi Specialist,

My wife with two kids ( Kid and Infant) is landing @ Terminal 4 from India to catch up domestic flight @ Terminal 3.

1) I understand the checin baggage needs to pass through customs and re-checkin with Delta. is this service available @ Terminal 4 or should the luggage be carried from terminal 4 to terminal 3 and do check in?

2) Can my wife avail any assistance for doing the luggage check out and re-check in?

1. She will need to check in at Terminal 3 for her second flight after passing Customs.
2. She should get some assistance from airport attendants. JFK_Specialist
