My fiance' will be arriving late February from Russia. She is worried about going through Customs and Immigration because she doesn't speak/read/write English very well. I am meeting her at the airport, but is there any way that I can be available to help her fill out the Customs and Immigration paperwork??

Sincerely, John F. in PA

No, there is not. However, it is likely that there will be Russian-speaking Aeroflot handling agents in the Immigration and Customs areas who will be able to translate for her. Also, it would not at all surprise me if several of the Customs & Border Protection agents speak Russian. I work at Newark Airport and know that many of the CBP officers speak multiple languages.

My complaint is about Turkish Airlines!
Very disappointed in their service - very unprofessional and careless!

My parents flight was scheduled for JFK-Istanbul on Nov.15 (US time) and Istanbul-Tbilisi at 11:15AM on Nov.16 (Tirkish time). The guy who worked at checking desk at JFK gave them both boarding passes for Istanbul and Tbilisi, since both flights were within the same company - Turkish Airlines. Instead of 11:15AM he gave them boarding pass for 11:15PM! They tried asking him question - he said he doesn't speak Turkish (my parents don't speak English).

Once they got in Istanbul, they went up to the checking desk and asked what had happened - no answer! The only words they heard from the workers was - that's what your boarding pass says? - BUT THAT'S NOT WHAT WAS IN THE TICKET.

Now they'd to wait 10 HOURS in the Istanbul airport for the 11:15PM flight!
I'm trying to straighten everything with the Travel Agency now where I purchased the ticket from to go after Turkish Airlines for explanation and compensation!


Fly Delta and you will see the difference.There is always a delay and every time the luggages are lost for two days.The flight schedule is mostly changed the last minute if not cancelled.It is always oversold.We fly to Istanbul every month so I advice you to fly other airlines to make a judgement.

indeed it's obvious that there's nothing wrong with the Turkish airlines since the flight a day is at evening time, i've several times flied with it including to Tbilisi, all satisfactory.

sorry but ' read your compla'n about Turkish Airlines 2 times but i hardly understand it. Turkish Airlines have only 1 flight from JFK to Istanbul and it lands 11:15am LT iSTANBUL and on sundays which your parents lands to Istanbul at Nov 16, THERE IS ONLY ONE FLIGHT FROM ISTANBUL to TBILISI which is at 11:25PM !!! So there is nothing wrong with their boearding pass.

Besides the check in staff at airport are the American ground handling agencies staff so they cant speak Turkish or they cant hire Turkish speaking as TK have 1 flight in a day from NYC.

I am a travel agency from Turkey not Turkish Airlines lawyer. I would like to reply you just to explain the situation.

Good day.

terrible service! well noted for turkish airlines!

Asiana Airlines uses Terminal 4 at JFk

Does Asiana use Terminal 1?

airline MU didn't take back my I-94 form

What shall I do now?
I took MU988 departing JFK for China on Nov.10.
My outbound info, I-94 form, had not been withdrawn by airline which was supposed to.

Is my outbound data input into US' customs correctly and timely?
Anyone tips?

if they didn't remove your I-94 form, it most likely means that for the authorities you are still in the country and, if the date is past that which the US custorms & border protection officer stamped upon arrival, residing illegally. if you are back in your home country (which is what i assume), i suggest you go to the embassy or consulate and explain your problem. i wouldn't worry too much as you can prove you left the country, but make sure you get it solved if ever you want to return to the US. overstaying can make it very difficult to re-enter.

Hi, I would like to check if for the Cart service info in JFK Airport, one of the eldery is disable, just check if the passenger landed in JFK from Terminal to Custom??? THANKS
