I have reservations booked with Delta from Prague to JFK and then on to Ft. Lauderdale. Originally, there was a 3 1/2 hour layover at JFK....a comfortable time usually for retrieving luggage, customs, passport control, security, and changing terminals for the second flight.
Now, Delta changed the schedule....with a tighter layover. So I am wondering...WHAT IS DELTA'S RESPONSIBLITY TO ME IF I MISS THIS SECOND DELTA FLIGHT BECAUSE OF ALL THESE ISSUES EVEN IF THE FIRST FLIGHT IS ON TIME????
There is only one later flight to Ft. Lauderdale that day. Delta will let me re-book my flight without charge. But that later flight would mean a 5-hour layover at JFK. ...not something to look forward to.
The new Delta scheduled leaves only 1 hour 50 minutes between flights....when we must retrieve luggage, and go through customs, passport control, and change terminals.
This makes me uncomfortable. If it were just a matter of changing terminals, I might not mind. But adding in uncertain luggage retrieval, passport control, customs, and security is what makes me very nervous about this new schedule.
I DO have travel insurance.
WHAT ARE THE CHANCES OF MAKING THIS CONNECTION AT JFK?
WHAT IS DELTA REQUIRED to do for me if I am unable to get on the second flight.
