You have enough time especially flying on the same airlines.

My son is going to arrive to New York at terminal 4 in an Air Europa flight. He has to take a connecting flight al terminal 1 operated by Aeromexico, hours later.
How can he go in a secure way to terminal 1? Can he walk inside the airport or there is a special shuttle to other terminals?
I will apprecciate a lot to have an answer.
Thank you.

There is free air train from one terminal to the other one.


I am traveling to US (by American Airlines) for the first time and I will be on a Student Visa (Indian Passport)
I will arrive at JFK from London by AA101 at 1.30 PM and will board AA4333 to Pittsburgh at 2.55 PM. My concern is 1 hr 25 min layover time at JFK. Will I get through immigration, baggage check in and stuff in 1.5 hours?
One thing to note is that I will remain on terminal 8 as my next flight is from the same terminal. Will it still be an issue? Since I am not changing terminals, will immigration happen at JFK or in Pittsburgh? And just in case I do miss the flight, will it be the airline's responsibilty to make sure I get the next flight? Or will I have to pay? I have already booked the ticket so what can be done now? Agency is saying it won't be a issue.

Help will be appreciated.

You should be good to go with that time frame.

My husband is coming to join me in London for the Olympics. His Delta flight from ATL arrives at JFK 1 Sept 2012 @ 4.10pm. Could you please advise if there'll be enough time for him to make his British Airways flight at terminal 7 for 6.50pm? He would need to clear customs then check in with BA with ample time to clear security and board his flight. Is 2.5hrs enough to do so? And are there trains that links the international and domestic terminals together?

Yes and yes.
