Yes it is.

I wanted to know if we are going to make it: we land in JFK terminal 4 from Warsaw at 4:05 PM and have a flight to Portland with JetBlue at 5:30, and we have baggage.
Thank you.

Very tight.It might take up to one hour to clear Immigration and Customs and Security at Jetblue. If your flight is delayed you might be out of luck.

Good morning,
Is two hours enough to collect luggage, clear security/customs/immigration, reach Terminal 5 from Terminal 1, get re-checked the luggage and check-in on Sat - May 26? We are arriving to Terminal 1 (Turkish airlines) at 16:30 and departuring at 18:40 from Terminal 5 (Jet Blue) to Orlando (Florida). What are ways to reach Terminal 5 from Terminal 1? What is the schedule of Airtrain (how frequently it goes)? what is the price? where can we buy tickets for Airtrain? Is it allowed to make electronic check-in for kids? How much time does it usually take for security screening for domestic flights? In case of Turkish Airlines flight delay to the US, do we have a chance to take next available JetBlue flight to Orlando? Thanks.

You should be OK with 2 hour time window.

Not an experienced traveler. Arriving by Jet Blue at 5:45pm on Fri ( 5/18) checking a bag. How do I get from bag claim to airport transportation to T 7 for a 8:40pm dept on Iceland Air? Is the air train the best way to get to T 7? About how long will it take to get to T 7? Do I have enough time time to do all this?

You have plenty of time to connect with 3 hour time window between the flights. From T5 take any train on track 2 to T7. Air train is the best transportation between the terminals with only 2 minute trip.

Thank for for your help. By any train does that mean there are train on this track running in both directions?

Air train on track 2 only will take you through airport terminals versus air train on track 1 will take you to Federal Circle and Jamaica Station in other words outside the airport.Any train on track 2 only for you to stay at the airport.

Just curious would it be faster to walk from baggage claim at T5 to T7? If time is an issue.

I PROMISE this is my LAST question.

Thank you so much.

Its impossible to walk between 5 and 7 you can only take an air train on track 2.

Arv into Terminal 5 (JetBlue) at 5:45pm 5/18 and Dept. Terminal 7(Icelandair) at 8:40 pm. First ?. from checked bag in Terminal 5 where is airport transportation to Terminal 7. Second ? How long wil it take to get from Terminal 5 to 7? First time traveler and nervous. Will I have enough time to get checked bag, transfer to different terminal, check-in and do everything needed to make out going flight?

I have the same dilemma and am a bit nervous about it myself. Arriving in Terminal 5, Leaving from Terminal 7. Need to go though customs, re-check bag, and get to my flight with an hour and a half layover....is this enough time. NERVOUS. PLEASE HELP !!

I am flying with JetBlue from Fort Lauderdale--> T5 JFK airport.
Do I need go through an immigration check at T5 (I am not US citizen) or can I directly go to pick up my luggage?

You dont have to go through Immigration since you are flying domestic only.
