Hello! Yesterday I purchased flights to travel from Edinburgh, Scotland to Indianapolis, US. I land at JFK Kennedy airport and have only 1 hour 25 minutes to catch the next flight.
Upon landing I'm assuming I'll have to go through immigration and customs, collect my baggage since it's the first point of entry into the US, check them in and go through security again? I'm panicking because last June in Newark I was held by customs and it took around 3 hours to do everything mentioned after having my bags checked and questioned. The customs queue in itself was a 30 minute wait! Even if I wasn't held the whole process would have taken longer than 1 hr 25 mins.
Is this a mistake? Will my bags be checked through to the final destination - Indianapolis?
The flight to JFK is through Delta and the connecting flight is with
Endeavour Air DBA Delta connection. I booked it altogether as suggested on the Delta site. I'm a 23 year old female travelling alone, I really don't want any stress. I just don't understand why Delta seem to think this is feasible. Should I try and change the connecting flight to a later time?
