My flight connections have been changed (unfortunately not for the first time this trip!), and I've been given 45 minutes between a plane that gets into Terminal 2, and one that leaves from Terminal 3. Is this realistic?

I bought a flight ticket SFO to JFK and the arrival time is 4:40pm with Jetblue so I will be arriving to the terminal 5 and the flight back to Spain is with Delta Airlines departing from terminal 3 at 7:35pm... It's enough time 3 hours to make the flight connection between both terminals? How many time takes for the Airtrain goes from terminal 5 to 3? Thanks!

Hi, On Aug 1st my parents came by jet Airways india to Terminal 8 and rechecked in 4 baggage to Jetblue to charlotte afer customs clearence. JetBlue lost one of our valuable baggage. We have lodged the complaint to JetBlue. Is there a way to check with in the terminal Lost/found?. please help

Am flying in from tampa to la guardia and transferring to jfk. We have an 11 hour lay over. Can we check in early with delta or only 3 hours before flight or is there somewhere we can store our luggage so we donot have to stay in the airport the whole of the time. We are flying out of terminal 2 back to london.

Flying in and out of terminal 3, with six hour layover, we want to dine in terminal 5. Can we take the train and enter other terminals with our terminal 3 boarding passes?

Anyone have an answer for us being able to enter a terminal with a boarding pass for another terminal?

I'm arriving Wednesday at Terminal 5 Jet Blue, and my friend is arriving at Terminal 3 Delta at the same time. We both have checked luggage. Where should we meet?
Are the baggage areas separate for both terminals? Should we try to meet curbside after we both get our luggage? Or try to connect in the terminal before we get our luggage. Help!
Thanks, Joyce

I will be flying in Sept 22 from ISRAEL and will need to connect to a flight to Salt Lake City. As far as I can tell the flights are in different terminals although both on Delta Airlines. Will I have to go through security again when changing to the Domestic flight?


I'm flying on August 12th to JFK from KEF (Iceland) and I will arrive at terminal 7 at 12:30 pm. My next flight is at 2:39 pm at Terminal 5 with JetBlue Airwaves to Fort Lauderdale. Is that enough time to get through immigration and custums and make it to Terminal 5? And which air train should i take?

Yes it is. Take it on track 2.

I have a flight landing at terminal 4 and I need to switch to terminal 8 to take next flight after 3 hrs to SFO. I have lot of luggage. What is the best option to transfer from T4 to T8 consindering I am travelling with infant.

Take an air train on track 2 from T4 to T8.
