Hi there. I am looking at a flight that arrives in Terminal 4 (Delta International) and departs with KLM (Terminal 4) 55 minutes later. If arriving from an international connection and connecting on internationally, do you have to recheck bags, or go through security or immigration? Will this be enough time? Thanks!

Where are you flying from and to? Are both flights on the same reservation?

Both flights would be on the same reso (not booked yet). Flying in to JFK from YYZ (Toronto) and flying to AMS (Amsterdam).
In January, I am flying from Buffalo to JFK on Jetblue. I have a 4 hour layover before connection on TAP Portugal. It appears as though Jetblue and TAP Portugal are both located in Terminal 5. Will I need to claim my checked baggage upon arrival into JFK and recheck them and go through security again before boarding TAP Portugal? And is a 4 hour layover enough time?
If it's one reservation all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If it's two separate reservations you will likely have to claim and re-check your bags and go through security. You have plenty of time.
Hi: We are flying into JFK from KEF to DTW on a Friday on Delta. Is 2 hours 20 mins transit enough time at JFK? We have never been to JFK airport and have heard that it is a huge airport so we are concern about switching between terminals. Thank you for any information you can provide.
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly. Most Delta flights from JFK to Detroit depart from Terminal 4, which is the same terminal where you arrive. The two terminals Delta uses are right next to each other.
We are connecting from JetBlue, terminal 5, to LATAM, terminal 8 on a single ticket. Will we have to go through security at terminal 8 or is there a secure way to travel from 5 to 8?
Yes, you will have to go through security again in Terminal 8.
If our first flight is on time we will have 2 hours and 12 minutes before the next flight leaves. Will it be best to check our bags through or carry-on? What else can we do to optimize our chances of making the connection?
It doesn't matter whether you check bags or not. You won't have to do anything with them in JFK on the way to South America.
I fly from vegas to jfk (terminal4) with delta to connect with manchester flight with virgin atlanta.(also terminal4) Only 45 mins in between because delta changed flight time.Can this be done.What is the procedure with luggage and security .what signs do we follow please
All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have just enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Thank you.what signs do we follow ?
Just look up your departing flight on the monitors and follow signs to that gate.
