I'm coming to JFK by EgyptAir, my destination is SFO, through JetBlue airlines. What is my scenario to get my baggage in SFO? Am I going to have to go through customs with my baggage in JFK or it will take place in SFO?
Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security in JFK.
I arrive at JFK at 1:15 this Saturday and my next flight is at 2:55 will I make it?

We have a flight from Madrid to JFK. I am booking a separate flight from JFK to Memphis. Is 2.5 hours enough time to go through customs collect my luggage and check in and go through security to board the flight to Memphis?
That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
I arrive at JFK on South African airlines at 6:40am. Would I have time to make an 11:00AM United flight at LGA?
That's probably just enough time if everything goes smoothly. Traffic will start getting bad by the time you get out of customs.
How is the best way to get from Jet Blue Airlines to terminal 1 Lufthansa.
Thank you.
The only way between terminals is the AirTrain.
My Virgin flight out of SFO is late and now I only have 2 hours from arrival at JFK Terminal 4 to departure via Delta/Alitalia to Rome out of Terminal 1. Any advice?
Coming into JFK from Paris with Reykjavik as connection. Can I accomplish Preclearance at Kevflavik?
No. Keflavik does not have Preclearance.
Flying into terminal 8 then out of terminal 7 with layover of 80 minutes. From domestic flight to International flight. So very tight with TSA and all. NO checked luggage. Can we catch internal shuttle from gate to train and then from train to security? Preplan or just flag down and board?
There is no shuttle from the gate to the train. You have to walk to the train, then take the train to T7, then go through security. You should have enough time.
