You will not have to claim your luggage in JFK if both flights are on the same reservation. Yes, the AirTrain is very well marked.
One last question is 2 hrs enough for this connection while am having my newborn with me
Yes, that should be enough time.
Plane lands in T8 at 4:45pm, my next flight departs from T5 at 7:25pm. Will I have enough time to pick up my bags, take the air train, and check in my bags by 6:40pm?
Is your arrival domestic or International? If it's domestic that should be enough time. if it's international it will be close.
Hi, I will be travelling from Shanghai to JFK. Eta JFK is next flight to Orlando is at 1455hrs. Will I be able to catch the flight on time? If I can't what are the possibilities of taking the next flight? I have booked the flights to Orlando. There are 5 of us.
That's barely enough time if everything is on the same reservation and everything goes perfectly. If everything is on the same reservation you will be rebooked on the next available flight if you miss your reservation, but it may take awhile for them to get all 5 of you there, especially if you are traveling during peak season.
Hi. I'm arriving at JFK term 5 at 7am and leaving to go to Germany at 7:45 am at terminal 1. Do I have enough time? And do I need to get my luggage or does it transfer for me? Thank you
Even if your bags are checked through I don't think you have enough time. However, please double check your reservation. As far as I know there are no morning flights from JFK to Germany.
Hello, I am arriving at JFK on Sunday 4 Dec at 8 am from Qatar on Qatar Airways (terminal 7) and have to connect to a flight from American Airlines to Cancun that departs at 12.25 pm (terminal 8)..

Do I have enough time to go through immigration, collect my suitcase, transfer to terminal 8 to check in to American Airlines?

How far is terminal 7 from terminal 8 and how do I go from one terminal to the other..
Terminals 7 and 8 are right next to each other and connected by the AirTrain. You have plenty of time.
Thank you!!!
I arrive JFK terminal 7 at 7:55AM and fly Jetblue(terminal 5) to Orlando at 10:25 AM. It is enough time for transfer?
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
We are booked (May 2017) to fly Thomas Cook into JFK due at 12:55, we are booked to fly to Toronto at 15:20 on American Airlines. 2 Passengers with checked luggage, so I understand we will have to collect and transfer baggage, clear immigration etc? Do we have enough time (2 hour 25minutes)?
That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. I personally wouldn't try it (I'd want at least 3 hours) but it's not impossible.
We are landing at JFK coming from Madrid at 6.55PM on American and looking to book a connecting flight to Los Angeles on Jet Blue at 9.30PM. Is this enough time to clear customs, get through security and get to the new terminal?
Late in the evening that might be possible, but it leaves no time to spare if you have checked bags. Check in online for your Jetblue flight before leaving Madrid.
Arriving on Air Berlin at 3:45 PM. Do I have time to get thru customs, get checked baggage and leave on a Delta flight at 6:30 PM?
and get bags rechecked to fly Delta at 6:30
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
I am coming into JFK on El Al arriving at 6am and have a Delta Flight departing at 8:05am. Can I make it and how is JFK configured to get me bags to Delta after customs
That will be really difficult. You will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs and then take them to the Delta check in desk on the departure level of Terminal 2 or Terminal 4 to re-check your bags.
