I'm not sure how rechecking a bag on a different airline works at JFK. I will be arriving on AA from Madrid at 12:55pm, and trying to make a connection on Delta to Pittsburgh at 3:20pm. Will it be possible to get through customs and check the bag with Delta, or is there not enough time to check in for the second flight and get back through security?

It will be hard but it's not impossible. You will have to take your bag with you to Terminal 4 on the AirTrain to re-check it with Delta.
I'm flying from CLT to JFK via American Airlines and is said to arrive at 10:15pm at terminal 8. Then I'll have to catch a China Airlines flight at 1:35am at terminal 4, will I have enough time to pick up my checked luggage, head to terminal 4, re-check baggage, go through security check, and eventually catching my 1:35am flight? Is JFK busy at that time of the day?
Thank you so much for your help.

Yes, that should be enough time. No, JFK is not busy late in the evening.
Hello, Will two hours be enough time to get between a domestic Delta flight from Terminal 2 (9am arrival) to an international JetBlue flight from Terminal 5 (11am departure)? And would a checked bag make a big difference (we'd like one but can eliminate if necessary)? Also, the flights will be on separate tickets.
Thank you! Adam
With no checked bags you have a chance. In my opinion it's far too risky with checked bags.
My flight times have changed and it will now leave only 1 hour between flights. I am flying into JFK from Philadelphia on Delta and connecting on a Delta flight to Rome. How far are the gates and is this enough time?
Yes, that should be enough time. Both flights are in Terminal 4.
