Hi all, we are flying to Rio in a few weeks and have a 24 hour stop over at JFK. We plan to leave the airport and explore New York! But what do we do with our baggage, is it automatically put in the next flight or so we have to collect it and store it somewhere? Thanks, Sarah :)

24 hours is so long that you will have to claim it and store it somewhere. There are services that can pick it up from the curb at JFK and there is also a luggage storage place near Penn Station if you take the AirTrain/LIRR into Manhattan.
If I am flying from Florida to Dallas then Dallas to Tokyo and then Tokyo to Okinawa...at what location will I need to get my bags ? Dallas or Tokyo ?
If all flights are on the same reservation you won't see your bags again until you get to Okinawa.
I am flying from toronto to maimi to grenada will I need to recheck my luggage? can I leave airport? 6 hr layover
If both flights are on American you don't have to do anything with your bags in Miami. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. Yes, you can leave the airport if you want but you will have to go through a long security line when you return.
Hi. I am travelling from Syracuse to Beirut via jfk and via Paris . I would Like to know if i have To collect my baggage at jfk ? I have the same ticket and reservation air France but from hancock Syracuse to jfk the flight is operated by delta operated by Gojet. Thank you
No, you don't have to do anything with your bags in JFK. You just have to take the AirTrain to T1 and go through security.

My luggage was remain at Telaviv air port on April, 06 2016 ( It did not sent to Ethiopia) What can be the reason? is there any mess at the Telaviv airport? / what?????, but I did not expect such thing at Jerusalem / Esrael.

I saw carelessness on Ethiopian Airlines for customer case even if the only way to communicate with any external airport is through them.
If you have any information....

Thanks,
Good day, I am traveling to Calgary from Port of Spain with a stop over in Houston. I booked my flight with United but the flight from Houston to Calgary is being operated by Air Canada? Will I need to collect my bags and go through customs with them and the drop them off?
On International to International connections on United through Houston, but I'm not sure what happens if the outbound flight is operated by a codeshare partner and frankly, you won't get a straight and knowledgeable answer on that by either United or Air Canada.
Hi I'm flying in from Manchester UK to Toronto Pearson and then on to Windsor, Ontario with like a 6 hour layover. Do I have to collect my luggage, clear customs and then recheck in in departures? Or is there an interconnecting flight desk for this?
What airlines are you flying?
Air transat and air Canada
Since you purchased two separate reservations you will arrive in Terminal 3, go through Canadian Immigration, claim your bags, and go through customs, then you will have to take the terminal link train to Terminal 1, re-check your bags with Air Canada, get your boarding passes, and go through security.
