Hi, I am travelling from Heathrow to toronto Via JFK..I have a student visa in Canada and my transit time is 2 hrs. I need to change aircraft frm american airnlines to american eagle airlines. Do i need a transit C-1 Visa?

my parents are arriving from delta and taking qatar to doha tomorrow. they have a transit of 8 hrs. can i enter the security to meet them? how can i arrange this?

You can do two things;
First: Talk to the ailines desk and see how you could get a visitor pass. It is very hard to get one, but no imposible, ask to seak to a supervisor. The other option is to get a cheap ticket, probablt $50 bucks to get aboarding pass and get in. that will be the more secure option.
Good luck

Hello, what's a minimum time to change from domestic to international flight by AA at JFK? I have a stopover with Delta at DCA with just a bit motre than 30 minutes to change, assuming no delays. If there's a delay, next Delta plane to JFK is too late for connecting but separately bought AA ticket to Europe (Vienna via Heathrow with an hour or so at Heathrow), so i'm thinking about extending the AA flight to DCA. I have two options: one giving me half an hour extra and 4 at JFK or later which is the exact opposite with an hour at JFK, including possible delay and customs. Which is more feasible to pull off?
