My boss is arriving at JFK terminal 8 at 12.35 and he has to get his bags and go to terminal 7 and get a plane at 14.27 Do you think there is enough time? We are worried about missing the plane.
Thank you

He has an OK time frame.

im taking the fung wah bus from boston to china town and i want to go to the jfk airport. How do i get there?

The Z subway only operates inbound/outbound during AM/PM rush hours. The J operates at all times and will take you to JFK/Sutphin Blvd. Closest J stations to Chinatown are Chambers St. and Canal St.

Locate the nearest subway stop for line Z;take it(Queens bound)to Sutphin Blvd stop and take Airtrain from there to JFK terminals.

take subway Z from Chambers Str, gate off at Sutphin and take Airtrain to terminals

we are a group of 12 arriving at JFK, need to get to Time Square, does $400 for a private shuttle sounds reasonable or is there a cheaper way?

this sounds like rip off - use one of those shuttles,they will take you there for no more than $120 plus toll($8).

arrange them upon arrivals at ground transportation(Welcome Center) desk.

Which is the easiest and cheapest way to get from JFK Airport to Penn Station? Thanks

Unfortunately, easiest rarely equals cheapest. The absolute cheapest way by public transportation is to get to Terminal 4 (you can ride the AirTrain between terminals free of charges), and then take to Q10 or Q10 Limited bus to the end of the line (Kew Gardens) for $2.25. From Kew Gardens, take a Manhattan-bound E train to Penn Station. If you purchase a Metrocard at JFK before boarding the bus, you will get a free transfer from the bus to the subway; otherwise you will have to pay a separate subway fare ($2.25 or $2.50, depending on whether you purchase a Metrocard or a single-ride ticket at the subway station).

Cheapest way is to take Airtrain(on track 1;$5) to Jamaica Station and then take either LIRR($6-$15) or Subway E($2.25) to Penn.
Easiest is to take taxi - flat fare of $50.50.
