i have a flight from Abu Dhabi to Boston through AA airline and there is a layover of 2 n half hour in JFK airport.
As i am entering in US for very first time after getting US immigration visa approved , so there will be immigration procedure in which i have to give them a seal envelop of my case file , so that they can enter in there systems.
My worries is that will i be able to get enough time to board next flight to Boston in 2 n half hour hour from other terminal and my second question is that do i have to collect my luggage from JFK airport or it will be automatically transfer to my other flight and i can collect it from Boston airport.

I am arriving from dubai to JFK by Emirates on may 11/2013 at 2.25 and have a connection flight to Fort Lardale-FLL by Jet Blue at 5.30 with my family. Do I have enough time to process through customs and connect to terminal 5? How can we go from T 4 to T 5?

Yes you have plenty of time to connect. Go on an air train from T4 to T5 on track 2.

We are arriving at JFK (terminal 3) on delta at 2:41 pm, leaving JFK (terminal 4) at 11:00 pm to Dubai on Etihad airways. Can we store our baggage in Terminal 4 at arrival until time of check in? we'd like a few hours in NYC.


I fly into JFK by CA981 on May 26, ETA 1420hrs, connect to B6024 from JFK to Syracuse, ETD 1700hrs. I need to clear customs first, then go to Terminal 5 to check in my B6 flight, is the connection time okay for me to catch my B6 flight?


I have my daughter flying into jfk from charlotte on jetblue. She has 2 hrs 20 minutes to catch a flight to Istanbul on Turkish airlines. How do they get from terminal 5 to terminal 1 and is this enough time. Thier baggage will be checked from originating airport to final destination. Thank you!

She has enough time to connect. From T 5 take any train on track 2 to T 1.

I arrive into JFK Terminal 1 from Las Vegas at 16:07 on Sat June 29 and have a Air Berlin Flight to Düsseldorf at 17:15 from Terminal 8. This will be a connection flight. Do i have to clear customs, collect luggage and check-in for my flight or is there another handling ? Thanks.

No your bags should be checked to your final destination. You only have to do that if you enter the U.S but thats not the case with you.

no customs clearance from JFK--you clear customs when u enter the country not when u leave the usa.

Will I have enough time using the shuttle to get from a domestc flight arriving at terminal 4 to go to terminal one, go through customs and board my flight on air france in 2 hours?

You should be good to go in 2 hours but you dont clear customs when you leave the U.S Air France flight to Paris France.
