Hi, I will be arriving at JFK on Emirates at 08:15 (I believe at T4) and I have a connection on Jetblue to Montego Bay at 10:32. I believe this is from T5.

As I will need to go through Immigration and Customs and re-check my luggage, is the connection time sufficient.

Thank you.
If it's one reservation that's barely enough time. If it's two separate reservations I'd say that's probably not enough time.
What's the easiest way to get from Terminal 4 to Terminal 5 baggage claim to meet a friend and my ride..
The AirTrain.
I am arriving JFk on Lufthansa from Frankfurt at 1:30pm and have a separate reservation on Jetblue to Santiago at 2:59pm. Is that enough time to clear immigration (I have global entry) and customs and recheck at Jetblue?
With checked bags, I say that's probably not enough time. With no checked bags it might barely be possible.
Flying in on Delta from Caicos and leaving on Delta on same reservation. 1:45 minute layover is too short for customs and immigration correct?
That's just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Will 2.5 hrs be enough time to disembark from an AA flight and pick up luggage in terminal 8, then get through security and check in for a Korean Air flight in terminal 1?
I have a knee defect and cannot walk long distances-what assistance is there for me to transfer?
You need to contact your airline to request wheelchair service.
Daughter coming in on Delta flight from Heathrow in mid December on a Sunday. Need to book another flight home to Chicago. Could be Delta but likely another carrier. How much time to budget for arrival, immigration/customs, bag pick up and recheck, transfer terminals?
If it's two separate reservations I'd want 3 hours.
i am arriving at JFK at 09.45am from Charlotte i have a 2nd flight on a separate reservation to catch at 12;00 midday Norwegian Airline to London is this enough time for security and baggage collection and checkin?
That will be pretty difficult. It's only possible if everything goes perfectly.
I have a Delta flight to JFK and another El Al flight to Tel Aviv. Do I need to recheck luggage at JFK or can I sent it through from Delta to El Al?
You need to claim your bags from Delta and re-check them with El Al.
My son will be arriving at JFK at 6am from Tel Aviv. He has a flight 3 hours later on Jet Blue to Nassau, Bahamas. I assume he will be able to print a boarding pass while in Israel or get it on his phone. Will he have to check in at Jet Blue to get a baggage ticket or can he carry his luggage through security and check his luggage at the gate for the flight? He will have a large racksack and a small backpack. I have purchased him Save Time on Jet Blue for the extra $10.
Does he have enough time?
Thank you
If it's all one reservation he should be issued both boarding passes by El Al in Tel Aviv, if not he will have to do the whole process in JFK. If it's one reservation he can re-check his bag right after clearing customs in JFK rather than having to take it to the JetBlue Check-in Desk to re-check . If it's two separate reservations he has to take his checked bag to the JetBlue Check in Desk in Terminal 5 to re-check it.
