if taking a flight from jfk to rome, with connection in germany....does luggage get checked all the way thru to rome?

It should be checked all the way if you have one ticket. Make sure you ask at JFK just to be triple sure.

I will be landing to terminal 1 at 11.20 and my AA flight departs from terminal 8 at 14.55. I wonder how long it takes to process through the custom and reach there.

Like I mentioned in a previous response to somebody else about an hour or so.

Hi, just wondering, returning to the US from Japan, are the people who pick you up at the airport allowed to go with you through customs? Or is it just the people who went on the flight that are allowed to wait in that line? Thanks!

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

Please give me a detailed info on steps to take arriving on Aeroflot to terminal 1 and then connecting to Delta in terminal 3.
1. what floor is customs?
2. where to get on the Airtran (what floor?, near what?)
3. what train? and how to find the right track?
4. whould the train drop you near a check in and security in terminal 3?
Please as many details as possible, because i need to pass the info to a non english speeking person with the baby and 1h 30m connecting time. ( only carry on, no luggage). THANKS!!!

1. First floor
2. 2nd floor of T3
3. Look at the boards above and it is track 2 track 1 is subject to take you outside the airport to Jamaica Station for example.
4. No u would have to walk few steps from an air train.

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.
