my mom is coming from AIR India to JFK terminal 4 at 7:25 AM. She has connecting flight to boston with AA at 12:45 PM. After claiming bags at terminal 4, would she have to carry bags to terminal 8 on airtrain to checkin or can she checkin at terminal 4 ?

Hi, I am flying from HYD-LHR (with AA codeshare BA), LHR-JFK-ANU with AmericanAirlines.
On arrival at JFK terminal 8, do i need to recheck-in my baggage and clear customs for my onward flight to Antigua? I have an 11 hour layover. Do let me know. Thanks

My father will be flying on 29 May from Norfolk, VA on American Airlines flight 4324 arriving at JFK terminal 8 at 4:20 pm. He has a connecting flight with Air Berlin (AB 7249) leaving the same day to Berlin at 5:30 pm. Will he have enough time to make his connecting flight if the AA flight arrives on time?

I am arriving from London at 7:55 PM and I am leaving for Argentina at 10:15 PM both with American Airlines, is this enough time for the transfer? Thanks for any help


On Saturday I will arrive in JFK Terminal 8 at 1pm. I will have 1.50 hours for changing to an internal flight to Miami also on terminal 8.
I am aware that I have to clear the customs and check in again.
Question: Is there a way or tip of how not to queue for too long. Is there some transit lane or someone who could guide us through quicker ? Also is there a tip for checking in again. Some luggage drop counter ?
Thank you for the support. AA changed my flight resulting in this very short transit time.

I´ll fly with AA from Miami to JFK, my friend will arrive same day from Guayaquil to JFK on Lan, almost at the same time.
We want to meet at the airport.
1. Could you tell me which terminal is for each flight (AA/LAN) I belive that both flights arrives al terminal 8.
2. Are there two arrivals at terminal 8, one for national flights and another for internacional flights?
3. Which one could be a good point to meet with my friend?

my wife and our dog is coming from Helsinki to JFK next Friday. They have 4,5 hours changing time for the next flight to LAX with AA. So arrival and departure is in Terminal 8. As the change time is over 4 hours, she will request our dog to be brought to the desk there (which should be possible in JFK) to be able to go to the pet area in Terminal 8 before the flight to Los Angeles.

My questions are:
- is it so that the baggage customs has to be cleared first (before taking our dog out temporarely)
- what kind of process it is to get the baggage to the next flight? I was told from Finnair that the baggage line and customs line should be pretty close each other (just put the baggage from one line to another). Is it so?
- could you give more detailed information where is the desk she can get our dog and then return it back for the flight to LAX?

I am traveling from Chennai, India to Newyork, USA - having connecting flight at JFK.

Ive Collected the boarding pass, and how to find out GATE no of BA113 at JFK?

when you get off the plane the counter rep will tell you; it will also be on monitors--read them carefully

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?
