My relative is flying BOM-BRU-JFK-DCA on 12th Aug. Ticket is showing terminal 8 for arrival and departure of 9w226/AA3823. Which gate he will arrive in JFK and which gate to depart? secondly, whether he will have to pickup the luggage and check in again in AA3823? Thirdly, he will carry 69 kgs (student visa) plus cabin baggage from Bombay....does he have to pay extra baggage at JFK for AA3823 ? Immigration will be done at JFK? Please reply urgently...thanks a lot..

By an air train.

My friend will be arriving with American Airlines at JFK earlier than me with LAN. Are the two of them, arriving at the same terminal ? What could be the best meeting point ?

Different terminals. T4 arrivals hall would be a good meeting point.

My parents are arriving at Terminal 8 - Finnair from Helsinki. They speak no English and are quite anxious about finding customs.
1) Are customs located in Terminal 8 or do they need to take the airport train?
2) Is there more than one way to exit the customs area?
3) If they miss me by the custom area exit, what would be a good meeting point?

1.Customs are located right after immigration.
2.After you exit customs there are few exits.
3. Arrivals hall of T8.

Hi, tomorrow I'll arrive Terminal 8 JFK from Milan 13.40 with AA and I'll have a connection to LAX with AA at 15.35. I kindlly ask if after customs there a special luggage check for connection and which is the maxt time to do it (45 mins before?). Thank in advance

No there are none. You can check 1 hour before your flight.

Picking up a 17 year old minor arriving from argentina, will we be able to meet him at the gate?

My friends are arriving from Helsinki on Finnair airline to JFK Terminal 8. At JFK Terminal 8, they have transfer to San Francisco by American airline. Do they have to go through the Custom at JFK and pick up Luggage before the transfer on to American airline to San Francisco.



My family will arrive at terminal 8 with Royal Jordanian flight on 29 Jun at 1615 hrs, next flight is from Terminal 5 with JetBlue at 2000hrs.
Please advice if this time between the flight is ok for immigration and custom and what is the best way to reach from Terminal 8 to terminal 5.
