There's an AirTrain station near long term parking which will take you to all terminals and it's free. Allow at least 15 minutes on AirTrain, trains run every 10 minutes or so. If you have lots of luggage it's a good idea to drop your family off at the terminal first.

Does JetBlue really demand that you arrive 2 hrs early for a flight to San Juan, PR? Or is it just suggested? Not looking forward to getting up at 4am!!

These flights are normally full and you'll need that much time to stand in line at check-in and at security. Better safe than sorry!

I arrive in Terminal 5 on a Jet Blue flight and have 40 minutes to get on my connecting flight on Iceland Air in Terminal 7-last minute need to get to Iceland. I have no checked bags and can run pretty fast, but is this do-able? I know the Airtran takes a few minutes-but-do I have to go through another security point? Does Iceland Air require any earlier check in? I have tried to call their customer service, but they are not open. Is there an in airport Iceland Air number I can call and let them know of my last minute check in?
Thank you much!!!

I believe you will have issues making your connection. Besides the time it takes to deplane and go to AirTrain to connect to T7 you will have to clear security at T7. Not sure if Icelandair will let you check in online and print your boarding pass which will certainly save precious time or if they will require you to check in at the airport to verify you have a valid passport, only they can answer your questions.

Do you know if JetBlue and TAM have luggage agreament? How can I get from term 5 to term 4 at TAM ?
How long would take for complete this connection if I had to check out and then check in the luggage? Thanks

We are flying into JFK on Fri night on Jet Blue, and flying out early Sat morning on Jet Blue, are all their flights in the same terminal, and what can we do while awaiting our flight out in the early morning. is there someplace where we can rest, and will we need to go for our luggage or will it be put on the plane that we will be going out on, like it normally is when changing planes.

Is there one Welcome Center per terminal or only one for entire JFK airport?

Where is it?

There is Welcome Center at T1, located on the first floor.
There is Ground Transportation Counter at T2 located on the first floor.
There is Ground Transportation Counter at T3 located in International arrivals area B.
There is Welcome Center at T4, located on the first floor.
There is Welcome Center at T5, located on the first floor.
There is Welcome Center at T7, located on the first floor.
There is Welcome Center at T8, located on the first floor, international arrivals.
There is Ground Transportation Counter at T8 located on the first floor, domestic arrivals.
Hope that helps.

What terminal and/or parking lot do I head for to pick up jetblue flight#98 from denver Thurs 9-29-11? Thank you for your reply.

Where >is the boarding area for the airtrain leaving terminal 5 going to terminal 3

AirTrain station is across the roadway from the terminal. Take the terminal loop train on track 2 to T3.
