Thanks JFK specialist for the info.

If I arrive in Terminal 5, do I need to take any train/tram to get to the 'curb' or do I just follow the ground transportation/baggage claim signs to get curbside?

Just follow the signs and head over to the outside of the building to the curb side.

My parents will be traveling on JetBlue from SFO to JFK and since the don't travel often and don't speak English very well, can you let me know the easiest way for them to get to the 'curb' from the gate at JetBlue's Terminal 5? Can they just follow the ground transportation/baggage claim signs and get curbside for their ride? Or do they need to take a train/tram from Terminal 5 to get to the curb? Any details would be great as I can't recall what I did when I was there? Thanks in advance?

What train or tram to on get on to get from terminal 5 to terminal 3. I have 2.15 hrs between flights is that enough time going intl out of Ter 3?

It is a walking distance from arrivals hall to the curb.

Arriving on JetBue at Terminal 5 and connecting on Royal Air Maroc at Terminal 1.

1. It depends whether your bags are tagged to your final destination.
2. Take an air train on track 2 to terminal 1.
