Arriving jet blue terminal 5 domestic, transfering to ELAL in terminal 4. What would be the easiest way to change terminals? Also where in the terminal is the synagogue?

Go to the third floor of Terminal 5 ,take Airtrain on track 2 and get off next stop.
The synagogue is on the forth floor of terminal 4.

I am taking a flight out of JFK to Puerto Rico on JetBlue in November and my flight leaves at 5:45 am. Is terminal 5 open 24 hours or does it close and then reopen at a certain time? Also, are there any restaurants or places to eat that early in the morning considering we will be there at about 3:30 am?

Terminal 5 opens around 3:30am and all the stores open at 6am.

it seems there are a few bars at terminal 5, but are these in the security gate and what time do they open?

There is one just before the security check point, not sure about the times.

We are arriving in terminal 5 with JetBlue the 2nd of August at 5:50 AM from Oakland, and we have to get to terminal 7 to departure with British Airways at 8:40 AM. Do we have time enough (2 hours and 50 minutes) to get our checked luggage and make it through security and reach the British Airways flight at 8:40 AM?

Can you please advise us the best way to timely transfer between the terminals and go through the customs in time to reach the flight?
Thank you

You have plenty of time to transfer. Take the Airtrain on the third floor of T5, on track 1 and get off next stop-T7.
You do not go through customs in your case.

we arrive jetblue T5 tomorrow @ 2:45pm and have to get to T3 for a Delta flight to Spain leaving at 4:24 - a schedule change brought this flight earlier. What train do we need? We have carry-on only. Thanks.

You will need to take Airtrain on track 2 only.Get off at Terminal 3.

I must take a JetBlue flight to Pittsburgh in Terminal 5 on Sun 20th. However, in the website it is indicated that "Terminal 5 is temporarily closed". Where does Flight JetBlue 1051 depart?

The old Terminal 5 is closed. The new one(Jet Blue) is open.

is there a cell phone charging station and is there a starbucks in either jet blue terminal???

Not sure about charging station; Starbucks is not at Jet Blue Terminal.

I will be arriving from Burlington (I think in Terminal 5) and would like to store luggage before a later austrian airline flight departing from terminal 1. My questions are as follows:
1. where is the best location to store my luggage?
2. how long is the transfer time from T5 to T1?
3. What's the best way to transfer from T5 to T1
4. would it be possible to check luggage from Burlington (JetBlue) through to final destination (Vienna, Austria) - both flights are separate tickets.
Thanks in advance
