They can only wait in the arrivals area and cant go through Customs. Customs is only for visitors coming from outside the U.S.

My family and I will be arriving at JFK terminal 5 at the end of July - scheduled arrival 20.50. What wait times can I expect to clear baggage and immigration to get to the taxi line?

Around an hour or so.

Hi, my parents are arriving on an International flight but connecting to a local flight to Charlotte,NC. Do they have to pass security check after customs to get their connecting flight?

If both flights take place at the same terminal then no but if they take at different terminals then yes they will clear security.

My sister arrives to terminal 1 on Aeroflot and departs from terminal 3. Could she check in and get a bording pass to Delta in terminal 2? She doesn't speek English and only has a carry on. It is easier for me to explain how to get to terminal 2 (she can just walk to it). Her connecting time is 1H and 40m. Please help!

Only at Terminal 3 where her flight will leave from. She has enough time to connect.

Hi, In September 2012, my boss and his wife will be flying into JFK from Toronto on a Delta flight. They will then be leaving JFK to Heathrow on a British Airways flight same day and then returning from Heathrow directly to Toronto. This Delta flight is not connecting flight so I'm assuming that once they arrive from Toronto, they will have to pick up their luggage and then go to Terminal 7 I believe to check in and go through Immigration again for their flight to Heathrow.

Thanks.

They will pre clear immigration and Customs in Canada all the have to do is go through security at JFK.

My CX flight will arrive Terminal 7 at 13:10, is that enough time for me to connect the domestic flgiht to Washington by JetBlue at Terminal 5 at 16:30?
And how can I get to Terminal 5?

Yes you have plenty of time to connect. From T7 take any train on track 2 to T5.

Hi, My parents will be visiting the US from India. They are going to Raleigh, NC but their first port of entry is JFK (Terminal 1) and their flight to Raleigh is from Terminal 5 (4 hr layover in JFK). They have 4 pieces of luggage and would like to hand over one suitcase to me in JFK. Can I meet them in the arrivals area in Terminal 1 to take the suitcase? Can they then take the air train from the arrivals area in Terminal 1 to Terminal 5 to make their connection? Do they need to do anything special for this one suitcase while checking in the baggage in India so that they can hand it over to me in JFK?

Yes Yes and No.
