JFK Customs in two hours?
 
Sorry if this is embedded somewhere - a search didn't uncover it.
Connecting from NCE to SDF via JFK/CVG. I have two hours to clear customs and make my connection to CVG. Possible? Likely? Time to change to another flight?

Assuming you're a US citizen and your NCE-JFK flight arrives reasonably on time, you should have no problems. The last few times I arrived at the 2-3pm hour at JFK (when the NCE flight arrives) - the most recent being just last week, there were no lines at all in the immigration area for US citizens and I got through immigration within 5 minutes. Even when the area was packed, I have never spent more than 15-20 minutes going through immigration in the US line.

I have found JFK customs much easier to get through than Atlanta.

Thanks, Clipper and Tired! I was about to change my flights (yet again, the other couple of times due to Delta's shenanigans) but I'll leave them alone. Appreciate the rapid feedback.

Shouldn't have a problem at all, If it takes more than an hour (including getting your bags) you are in the wrong line!

Prolly woulda been less stress just to go NCE-CDG-CVG-SDF.

My experience has been that JFK is more efficient than ATL, and sometimes even beats CVG. Two hours should be plenty.
