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.
BA36 to BA113.
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?

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?
