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.
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.
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.
