I will be landing in JFK airport on an AA flight from Heathrow and will be flying out to Jamaica an hour and a half later on another AA flight. I presume I will not have to go through immigration as I should be able to get a direct transfer between the flights? Any ideas?


I had two big posters rolled in a brown paper, cylinder is about 60cm long and there`s no writing on top.
I was sitting in front of windows right next gate number 5 and left to gate 4 ,flight 6 to Helsinki(12.3 klo 18.45)
If someone could please contact me to post the pictures, emotionally valuable!!!

It will be my first time at JFK.I will be landing at Terminal 4 by ETIHAD Airways at 0830 in morning. I will have to catch American Airline(AA) flight at Terminal 8.
After clearing Immigration and Customs, how do i transfer my baggage to Terminal 8? I know that i can travel by Air train with my cabin baggage but how do I take my check-in baggage to Terminal 8 from Terminal 4by Air train?

Is it possible and allowed to use baggage cart to carry baggage through Air train? Is it possible to use baggage cart while climbing or getting getting from stairs while going to Terminal 8?

Can I check in my baggage at AA counter at Terminal 4 instead of taking my baggage all the way to Terminal 8?
Any other assitance on this matter?
Pls help.

Immediately after customs you can check in the baggage there it self which goes to american airlines terminal or where ever it has to go, make sure to get the check in receipt all the way upto your final destination initially

On July 6 I will travel from Chicago to Bermuda via NY. My flight from Chicago (AA) will land at terminal 8 at h. 16.15 and the flight to Bermuna (AA) will leave from Terminal 8 at h. 17.20.
Will I have enough time to chatch the flight ?
How distant is the arrival gate from the departure gate ?
thank you very much for your help

You'll be fine, Donatella.

No way to know where the distance between gates, since you haven't given the gates, and they are often not known until the day of the flight, but the reason you're arriving and departing from Terminal 8 is for the transfer. You won't have to reclaim baggage, pass security or check in, so one hour is MORE than enough time to move from one gate to another within the terminal - even terminal eight, which is reasonably large.

In addition, since you will have checked into your O'Hare-JFK leg, the flight staff on the second leg will KNOW where you are, and they will wait for you. I've had a delayed flight from Hawaii where the second leg flight (to New York) waited until the flight came in, because some passengers were transferring.

So.. no worries, okay? ;-)

I bought an international plug adapter gizmo at the tech products store near gate 41 at JFK Terminal 8 at ~5:20 p.m. yesterday afternoon, then boarded my flight for Zurich. Upon landing here discovered I'm missing my wallet! Last name Raynolds ... will be SO appreciative if it's found and returned!

Thank you...

I will be arriving at JFK on CX830 at 13:10p.m. Will I have enough time to go through customs, take lugguage, clear lugguage and make a connecting flight on American Airlines leaving for Orlando from terminal 7 to terminal 8 ? My Connecting flight is at terminal 8 at 15:45p.m.

And could you pls. tell me for each step from arriving to departure ?


My flight is American Airlines. I'll arrive at JFK 6:10 and my another flight to Los Angeles will depart at 7:30. where I should check in? I'm worried because JFK is huge and I've afraid to lost there.

I made a flight on Delta from JFK to RIC airport yesterday afternoon. Upon arrival in Richmond, NO ONE on the flight had received their luggage.

Please explain how an airplane can take off without having any luggage of the passengers on board?

The Delta officials in Richmond assured me that 2 other flights were leaving JFK and coming to RIC that day and that I would receive my luggage that night. 18 hours later, I still have no luggage.

I have called, emailed, left messages, and tracked the status of my delayed baggage- all to no avail.

It is the holiday season and all my gifts were in my suitcases, not to mention all my clothes, toiletries and prescriptions that I need. I am desperate to know if the suitcases have even left New York and have made it to Richmond. I am willing to drive to come and get them, but I have NO information whatsoever to go off of.


I was wondering the policies for taking wrapped presents in your carry on. Can you please tell me if I can wrap gifts or not?
Thank you
