It seems that my Delta international flight is now arriving in T4, changed from T3. Is this a good thing? How is the customs & immigration at T4? And how is the connection to the AirTrain from T4?

Its all good.

According to Delta app, I'm landing in Terminal 4 Monday but flying out internationally Terminal 2 (1hr8min). Is there still a shuttle bus that bypasses security to transfer to Terminal 2 from Terminal 4.

Yes if your both flights are on Delta.

Hello I have a flight on 06/18/2012 that will be landing from Reno, NV to New York La Guardia Airport @ 11:30 AM. I then have a 12 hour layover (which I will be spening a night at a nearby Airport Hotel). I then have a fight at JFK International Aiport on SAA (South African Airways) Flight 7916 on 06/19/2012. I have a few queastions:

Is Terminal 4 where I go to retrieve my boarding pass and check in my luggage?

Are the international and domestic terminals seperate? Or is all of JFK a massive international Airport and La Guardia is domestic only?

When I land in La Guardia will I retrieve my checked in luggage there or do the Airports automatically transport my baggage to JFK?

Please see my previous response.

I have a Carnet that I need to get stamped when leaving JFK, I will be flying with Virgin Atlantic to london Heathrow. please can you tell me where the customs office is in relation the Virgin Check-in Desk.
also what hours the customs office is open.

Many thanks

I have the same question. Can someone please answer? Need to get the sample validated by the customs

I'm flying to Warsaw, Poland on LOT airlines tonight 22.55pm.
I will have one extra piece of luggage over the quota.
Is it payable at the checkin or somwhere else? Where?

At the check in desk at Terminal 4.

Hi, I will be reaching terminal 8 at 2050 and have to take a connecting international flight from terminal 4 at 2230. Is the time sufficient for travelling from terminal 8 to 4 and boarding.


Hello, I am taking an AA flight that is due to arrive 7:10 am, terminal 8 on Sun. May 6. I need to be at the El Al Ticket counter in terminal 4 by 8:40 am. Will I have enough time? What is the best way to handle this? How long do you usually have to wait for lugguage at terminal 8? Thanks so much!

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
