Hello I am arriving on AA2096 at 4.25pm at T8 and connecting on Iberia6250 at 6pm T7 is that enough time

It is very tight , hope AA is not late.

I'm coming to new york 8.7 by finnair 3.30 pm. My next flight is from terminal 3 with delta 19.05 pm. Is there enough time for customs etc. Can I make it?

You have plenty of time - no need to worry!

hi there,

I am going to JFK, terminal-8, I have got american airlines flight to catch. I am leaving from 30th Avenue, astoria.

will highly appreciate if you kindly let me know how to get there.

thanks in advance.

I am flying in tomorrow and will arrive at 3:00. My airline in American... I arrive at gate A1. My friend will arrive from Germany on Delta #107 at 2:20 Gate 7. Where do you suggest we meet? I'm afraid the airport is so large... we'll have problems finding each other.

Taxi is one of the choices - it will be on the meter.
Public transportation is another choice:
1. Take bus Q102(at 30Ave and 30str) towards Roosevelt Island. Get off at Queens Plaza.
2. Take subway E towards Jamaica and get off at Sutphin Blvd stop.
3. Take Airtrain to JFK Terminals.
The whole trip on public will cost you $7.25.


I arrive from Halifax,NS at terminal 8 at JFK on April 6th at 3:10pm with American Airlines. I leave Terminal 3 at 4:40pm with Delta going to Atlanta. Do I have to go through customs in terminal 8? Do I have enough time between flights to get from terminal 8 to 3? Is the Airtrain easy to locate?

You arrive as domestic flight(customs are pre-cleared at Halifax,NS). Airtrain is located on the second floor of Terminal 8. Take the train on track 2 to Terminal 3.
You do have time to make the flight.


My parents are traveling from India --> JFK -->San Francisco on April 28, 2010. They are arriving by JetAirways 12:15PM at terminal 8 and have a connecting flight (United Airlines) 14:33PM at terminal 7.
They are senior citizens and using wheel chair assistance.
1. Is this time gap 2:15 mins is sufficient to catch connecting flight in terminal 7?
2. Can we check in the baggage (after immigration and customs) at terminal 8?
3. Is wheel chair access takes more time to catch connecting flight? Will they help them to check in baggage to connecting flight?
4. What is best way to go terminal 7?


1. Yes , the gap is sufficient to make the transfer.
2. They can do that at T8 Connecting flights counter(located right after customs)
3. Having a wheelchair assistance is a huge benefit because the wheelchair people know the procedures and the fastest way to get to passenger's connecting flights. They will assist thought up to the point to the check-in counter of the connecting airline.
4. Airtrain is the best/fastest way to Terminal7

I'll arrive from doha (qatar) in terminal 4 and will go to Montreal with American Airline in teminal 8. I'll have a 2h10 connection time. Do you think it's possible? What about the customs? My luggages?

It is possible to make the connection. You collect your bags in order to go through US customs. As soon as you exit customs look for Qatar Airways Connecting flights counter where you can recheck you bags onto your next flight to Montreal. Then go on the third floor and take ANY Airtrain on ANY side/track to Terminal 8.

i have a flight on thursday on american eagle n a friend is dropping me off so where could she park her car?

Terminal 8, short term parking lot(Red parking lot).
