I'm arriving tomorrow around 1 pm from Pittsburgh in Terminal 8 (American Eagle) to catch a connecting flight to Zurich at 5.40 pm (AA) also in Terminal 8. I would like to spend the long waiting time with shopping in Terminal 4. Would it be possible to check in my suitcase and leave terminal 8 or do stay there as soon as I'm checking in?

Thanks for your help.


I am arriving from Hong Kong on Cathay Pacific and connecting on AA to Toronto. Do I need to collect my bags, clear Immigration/customs before connecting to my flight to Canada?


Hi, I need your kindly help.
I will arrive JKF by CA981 from Beijing. And transfer to Boston by DL3059 on 8th May. Which terminal could I check-in by DL3059? I found DL3059 is a code share with OH.
It’s also a problem when I leave US. I will depart from Boston to JFK by DL2855, and back to Beijing by CA982.
Thanks a log

We are arriving on virgin from Heathrow on Wednesday 2nd May 12.20pm & have then got to transfer to terminal 5 for a Jet blue flight to Ft Myers. Are there easy directions to term 5 & will our luggage have been transferred or do we have to go through immigration as our flight is at 2.30pm & worried about the time!

You have nothing to worry about you have enough time. From T4 take any train on track 2 to T5. Your luggage should be clipped to final destination but keep in mind you will pick it up and clear it through Customs at JFK.

I am flying on Jet Blue from DC. arrives Terimal 5, am I able to go to the United Red Carprt Lounge in Terimal 7 for I have a 31/2 hour layover


I have a JetBlue flight coming in what I assume will be Terminal 5, and an American Flight leaving (I assume) Terminal 8 one hour later. What is the quickest way for me to switch terminals?

By an air train on track 2 from T5 to T8.

I will be ariving from Las Vegas at 16:30 hours by AA and my wife will be arriving by Qatar Airways at 15:00 hours. I want her to wait at the international arrivals. What can be the best land mark for her to wait and how do I reach there from my terminal ?Walk or Air train.

Terminal 8 arrivals hall. Both airlines use the same terminal so walking would be good.

I will have a Terminal 7 Boarding Pass and a very long connecting time. Q1--Can I use my boarding pass for a Terminal 7 flight to enter the Terminal 4 security area to see a friend off before their flight? Q2—Can I walk between terminal 7 and terminal 4? Q3—When walking or AirTraining between terminals 4, 5, 6 and 7 does one stay inside the security area of leave the security area. Thks, Leona

1. No you cant.
2. No use free air train on track 2 from T7 to T4.
3. Leave security area.
