I have a flight connection in New York, I will arrive with LAN at terminal 4, and have to catch my next flight at terminal 7.
How can I move from terminal 4 to terminal 7 as soon as possible.

By an air train of course. Take it on track 2 from terminal 4 to terminal 7.

Correction it is terminal 8. Take any train on track 1 terminal loop from terminal 8 to terminal 4.

Good Day,
I'll be arriving to terminal 4 via LAN Chile. I bought two American Airlines tickets in Chile from NYC to D.C but not together ( indepently, not as connection flights). I know I have to get to terminal 8 for the AA( american eagle operated) flight.

1) After immigration , where should I drop my luggage..directly at the AA counter con Terminal 8 ?

2) Where should I get my boarding pass..at the AA counter in T8?

3) Where do I pick up the Air Train to T8?
Thank you

2. Terminal 8
3. On the 3rd floor of terminal 4 take any train on track 1 from T4 to T8.

I was stuck there in terminal 4 this past holiday weekend. No hotels rooms in NYC?!?! All things considered..the people of terminal 4 at JFK were most valiant! Most places operated 2+ hour past closing time and employees maintained an upbeat spirit. I was among the 300+ stranded there Saturday into Sunday. Many were concerned, but JFK security and NYPD kept things safe for the masses to rest a bit. All plans were washed, but THANK YOU JFK and NYC for making the situation bearable. I hope to return one day, for a real trip.
