I am arriving at JFK on flight QF107 terminal 7 my flight leaves from Sydney stops at LAX then continues to JFK do I clear imm/customs at LAX or JFK? How do I get from terminal 7 to terminal 2?
Thank you Marcia

JFK as it is your first point of entry into the U.S. On air train on track 2 from T7 to T2.

In about 10 days (on a Sunday Morning), I'll be flying in to Terminal 4, arriving at 0625 (on DL). My connecting flight is in Terminal 8 (on AA) departing at 0750.


How do I get from Terminal 4 to Terminal 8?

Do I have to go through security (both domestic flights)?

Is an hour and 25 minutes enough time?

I will be arriving in Terminal 4 (via Delta) at 0625 and need to catch my connection in Terminal 8 (via American) at 0750.

I have an hour an 25 minutes. Is that enough time to get from T4 to T8?

Will I have to clear security again?

How do I actually get from T4 to T8? I've never flown through JFK before.

Thank you!
