My wife and son are flying to Paris this summer on Delta.
Their flight leaves from JFK -> ORY at 1730.
I can book them a flight from Spokane (GEG) to JFK on the outbound leg, also on Delta, that will land at JFK at 1605, leaving them about 1.5 hours.
Is this enough time? Obviously more time would be better-- but I can't find any better arrival time, unless they arrived the night before, since we're on the west coast and at a smaller airport.
On the way home the same problem exists-- they land at JFK at 1549, and the best option to get them home is 1815, leaving roughly 2.5 hours to clear customs.
Is this do-able? I haven't flown through JFK in 20 years, so I don't know. I think since all flights (both international and domestic) are Delta, the checked bags should be transferred through?
EDIT: the JFK-ORY leg is already purchased since it's a group travel.
Thanks for any advice.
