I will be traveling abroad by myself this summer and I was wondering if anyone can help answer some of my questions. I will be departing from TPA to JFK, then JFK to Istanbul, and Istanbul to Nuremberg.
I am unsure if I need to claim my checked luggage once I have landed from my domestic flight (TPA to JFK) before transferring to an international flight (to Istanbul). Or will my checked luggage reach my final destination of Nuremberg? I am flying with JetBlue and Turkish Airlines, to be specific. I have a two-hour layover at JFK and I'm worried that it will not be enough time IF I need to claim my baggage after landing at JFK and then have to recheck it again at the Turkish Airlines counter.
I booked my tickets through the Turkish Airlines website and I'm confused about the luggage transfer since they're two different airlines.
