My sisters and I are all flying to JFK on different airlines and arrive at within 3 hours of each other. I get in at 5:00 at terminal 7 along with 2 others but they are at terminal 5. We have to wait for the last one that arrives at 8:00 in terminal 5. I wanted to get a suggestion on where to wait/meetup with everyone. From previous posts it looks like I cannot get into terminal 5 without having to go through security again. I would appreciate any suggestions.

Terminal 7 arrivals hall.

is there the immigration control in terminal 5 for incoming flights? is there a taxi stop in from of the terminal?

No and yes.

I'll be arriving from Brazil at Terminal 8 (AAirlines) at 6:15 AM. I'm buying a ticket on JetBlue to Orlando. What time do you suggest to buy my ticket, if I'll need to leave time to the luggage, imigration, transfer from terminal 8 to 5, and TSA? How do I go from terminal 8 to 5? My returning flights will be the same: Jetblue to fly from MCO to JFK, arriving at JFK, 6:22 PM and departing (AAirlines) from JFK to GIG at 9:25 PM. Is this window enougth? And the last: how do I go from terminal 5 to 8?

At terminal 8 use air train on track 2 it should be 2 minute air train trip to terminal 5. From terminal 5 take an air train on track 2 to terminal 8, 2 minute trip. Whenever you book a flight a safe and comfortable time frame would be at least 2 hours in between flights so you can safely book a flight around 815-830AM.

Considering I'll be arriving on an international flight and I'll have to pick up my luggage, go to customs, go to terminal 5, etc, 2 hours between flights is safe?

Yes you should be good as long as your first flight is on time.

I am arriving by JetBlue from Portland, ME at terminal 5 and need to get my baggage and check in at Delta terminal 3 for a flight to Nice, France. Can you give me directions as to how I do this. Do I have to go through TSA again?

When you arrive at terminal 5 take an air train on track 2 to terminal 3, 2 minute air train trip. You may have to recheck your bags with Delta if both of them dont have a luggage agreement. Most likely yes you will have to go through TSA again.

I'll be arriving at terminal 8 (American Airlines) at 6:22 AM. What time should I schedule my flight to MCO, having enough time to do the migration?

Allow yourself at least 2 hours between the flights to make a successful connection. Figure around 845AM.

i will arrive at terminal 3 from athens greeceat 3.15 need to go through customs and get to terminal 2 for my next flyat 5.00 will i make it on time?

You should be good with that time frame providing your first flight is on time.
