Hello, I'll take AA4462 from Montreal, arriving at 2:10pm at T8. Next flight I'll take is CA982, at T1, at 3:50pm.
Do I have to take out my luggage and drag them to T1, store them again? Or is it possible the airport can do this for me?
As I'll come from Canada, I'll have to pass the custom to get in, is that right?
After all this procedure, do you think I can catch my second flight on time?
If I can't, will the airline company be able to put me on the next flight? Do I need to add money for that?


You will clear Customs in Montreal. After that your luggage should be clipped to final destination. You have plenty of time to catch your flight.

On the 16th of Oct, I travel from Guatemala (07:10) via Miami where I will go through customs (and maybe check in luggage again? and hopefully all the way to Stockholm since AA have a luggage agreement with AA), to New York where I arrive at 16:25. I have then 2 hours till my Turkish Airlines flight via Istanbul to Stockholm, having to get from terminal 8 to 1. I hope that will be enough time, even if I might have to, once again, check in my luggage at JFK terminal 1?

You should have enough time for your connection.

I am flying into JFK on Monday 7/30 on an International flight from China, I am transferring to a domestic flight on Jet Blue, my first question is what terminal is Jet Blue in? Secondly do you think I will be able to get through customs and transfer terminals in 2 hours? Thirdly, what is the most convenient way to transfer terminals at JFK?

By an air train

if i need to pick someone up how dod I know wich terminal to get go to before I arrive at the airport

Ask for the airlines and check them on this website.

I have a Delta ticket for an international flight. I will be arriving at JFK on a Delta flight from Europe. My connecting flight on Delta is 1 hour 20 mins later. will this be enough time to make the connecting flight? Will I need to change my ticket?

Yes you have enough time.

arriving on AA terminal 8
how do I get to terminal 2?
do i need to go through security again?
need to print boarding pass for second airline

Yes you will clear security again. From T8 take any train on track 2 to T2.

what Terminal does Hawaiian Airlines use? My son is flying alone on Delta to JFK, then on to Hawaii on Hawaiian. Will he have to leave one terminal and pass thru security a second time? What is the best way to move between terminals (if necessary)?

I will be arriving by American Airlines from madrid at 7:05pm and I have a jetblue flight to buffalo at 10:45pm but the 2 flights are 2 different bookings, which means I have to take my luggage and change the terminal. So is the time enough for me to make it for the jetblue flight?
