I am flying with Cathay Airlines from Vancouver Canada to JFK with a 15 hour layover before continuing on to London, England with British Airlines. Do I have to pick up my bags from the luggage carrousel and check it into BA? Or will it automatically transfer over for me? Also is there anywhere in Terminal 7 I can store my luggage during the layover?

It should be checked all the way to your final destination.

I have a 8 hour layover at JFK. I would like to work on my computer during that time and then store it at the luggage counter until I come back through on my return flight because my destination country is not safe for electronics. Is it possible to store my computer for 8 days at JFK?


Is the storage falility for luggage at Terminal 4 after I come out of the immigration and costoms. Or is it before the Costom and immigration.
Will I be able to collect it at teh arrival and straight away go to departure?

Is the luggage service allowing bags left over night? Thanks!

I am welcoming a group of 16 people arriving to JFK from Europe, transferring to the heliport. Are there any porters at the arrival near the luggage carousel who could take their luggage to the van? Or should I send hire porter from the outside? Are they allowed to come inside the customs?

On november 13 I'll be on my way to Cancun from Israel, and my flight arrives to terminal 4. Two months later I'll be going to NY and would like to leave two bags on the airport during my stay in Mexico. The flight from Cancun back to NY arrives to terminal 8.
What is the best way to make sure I'd find my bags? Is there a place I could leave theme for 2 months, and if there is how much will it cost?
will it be better to send theme by mail?

Thank you in advance, Liat

I will be arriving to JFK airport in 3 days. and I am taking another flight from there to Kansas City. I have some items that I brought for my friend, but he can not meet me in the airport because he will be working and can't leave work.
Can I leave the bag that contains his stuff somewhere at the airport for him to collect later?


I am arriving with my family from Orlando to JFK Terminal 3 on 9/4 at 09.15 on Delta 2058, then travelling from terminal 2 on KLM 9082 (operated by Delta) to London Heathrow at 21.30, also on 9/4. The flights were booked separately.

Will I be able to check my bags straight through from Orlando to London, or will I have to pay for left luggage if I want to leave the airport?

The reply below could be partially right. If Delta refuses to clip your bags all the way to final destination then you may have to recheck your bags but also make sure at your original departure destination to ask whether that will be the case.

You will need to recheck your bags since they are both on separate flights.

All this passenger has to do is to speak to DL personal in Orlando - as long as the passenger is able to show the second flight , DL agents will tag his bags all the way through. In that case there will be no need to recheck the bags at JFK.

in a couple of months i'll be flying to NY JFK, staying only until the morning of the day after. is it possible to transit the luggage to the next flight (the day after arival)without going through customs with it?
i will be spending the night in an hotel near the airport.
