hi i have a american airline flight from san francisco to jfk! and then from jfk i have connecting flight with american airlines and to the antigua and my time between is 40 mins, will i be able to make it to my next flight?

does anyone know whether I have to clear security and come back in again when changing from an international arrival to a national departure at terminal 8?

Yes you do.

When changing from an incoming international flight to an outgoing internal flight at Terminal 8 does the change happen within the terminal, or do i have to go out through security and back in again?

I'm changing at terminal 8 from a flight from London to a flight to Puerto Rico.

I take it the latter flight is considered "internal"? And do I need to come out through security and go back in again?

Please it is very urgent to recover it.

My brother lost it in a transfer flight in Terminal 8- JFK (America Airlines).
If you find it call me at 707 334 1722.

Many many thanks!

I lost a black Matt and Nat brand wallet at JFK Terminal 8, I think near the Air Berlin Gate. I was leaving NYC for Berlin, Germany. What should I do to find it? Is there a specific number to call or place to go when I arrive back in the United States?

I have bought tickets for my daughter from Helsinki to Los Angeles on 25th october. The flight is Finnairs flight from Helsinki to JFK at 15:50 and American Airlines at 19:15 to Los Angeles.
WE are looking carefully the route and what to do on JFK, so I would like to know which is the gate where Finnair usually arrives and the AA to Los Angeles leaves?
We have also got two different information how to operate with luggages on JFK. Does the luggages go straight to Los Angeles from Helsinki or does she have to move them by herselves to Los Angeles plane on JFK?

Hi, my parents are flying from BOS to CCS via MIA on American (AA-685 09/29/2012) but this flight was suddenly diverted to JFK. Is there any way to get in touch with them or with the gate's operator in order to get more info?

I arrive JFK T4 from Dubai and will connect directly to AA flight to Toronto at T8. I am not entering the USA as such, will be carrying only handbags and will most likely be prechecked with a boarding pass for the AA flight. Do I still need to clear US Immigration as I am really transiting to another country. If I must clear immigration, is there a fast track for international to international flights. I hold a Canadian passport.
Thanks for all the suggestions and advise on this.

You must clear US customs at JFK even though you are just transiting through as the US is your first point of entry. No fast track options. After you clear customs go to 3rd floor and take AirTrain on track 1 to T8, clear security and proceed to gate.

Thanks - what time should I set aside for the immigration process and getting thru security at T8.

Customs is always a crapshoot depending on time of day and passenger volume; could take 15 minutes or an hour and 15 minutes! I'd allow at least two hours for customs, transit between terminals and T8 security. Allowing a little more time couldn't hurt!

Thanks - I arrive at 2:15 pm in the afternoon at T4 and have a window of 45 minutes for the first connecting flight at T8 or the next 6 hours later. I guess irrespective of how quick customs maybe at 2:15 in the afternoon the safe shot is the later flight - in which case does American / American Eagle provide lounge services at T8?

T8 has an Admirals Club in both the domestic and international areas, if you have proper access.
