Transfer between T1 and T4S with luggage

We are flying Delta to Madrid deplaning and picking up luggage in Terminal 1, but we are supposed to meet a group arriving on Iberia from New York at Terminal 4S. Is it possible to make the transfer between these terminals without a boarding pass for a connecting flight from T4S?

Julia:

There is a free shuttle bus that goes between the terminals every 10 minutes. It can take you to Terminal 4. From Terminal 4 there is an automated rail car that goes to Terminal 4S every few minutes. I think you will have to check in at Terminal 4 and get your boarding card there if your two airlines are not part of an airline alliance like One World.

Many thanks, Benny. We will not be boarding a second flight, only meeting our party in T4. We do not intend to go to T4S as the automated rail car appears to require a boarding pass, which we will not possess. Could you please suggest a good place to wait/meet in Terminal 4, perhaps in the baggage claim area? J.

baggage claim area is only accessible to people who just got off the plane in T4 or T4S. A good meeting point could be the turnstiles of the metro station in T4 (there is only one and there are signs to the metro station all over the place.

Thanks. I think perhaps we can go to the Arrivals Lobby just outside the baggage claim area. The Metro access area is a good idea as well. J.
