A friend of mine will be flying MXP-JFK-YUL next month, both segments with AA, same PNR.
He asked me a couple of questions. Of course he'll also call AA to ask, but I thought you may have an answer, too:
- will the bags be transferred automatically at JFK, or will he have to collect them and re-check them after customs, just like you do when connecting to a domestic flight after arriving internationally?
- are 2:20 hours enough to connect in JFK? I don't know what terminal he will arrive at, nor where he will depart from. In my opinion the big variable is immigration: if a lot of wide-bodies arrive at the same time, it could be a bit tight. What do you think?
