You should be OK. One hour and half is enough , given the fact that you don't have to change the building, not even clearing the security. As soon as you disembark the plane, look for the gate number for your flight to Madrid.

We'll arrive at 01,30PM at terminal 8 with flight AA199 from MXP.
We'll than take off to Orlando at 3,30PM with AA1917. I'd like to know if we shall claim our luggage and then check in again for domestic flight or it will be considered a simple transit. Custom checks will be done at JFK or at our final destination ?
Thank you.

Since you are coming international and JFK is your first point of entry in US, you have to go through customs at JFK. Which means, you have to pick up you bags before customs and recheck them after that.

I am flying from Paris to JFK on the 27th June by Delta, my daughter is flying in on Jet Airways from Bombay. She lands at 12.15, and I land at 12.45, where shd we meet and how do we get there?

What flight number are you coming on? It could be a code share with Air France that could land you at T1.
Terminal 3 is very confusing place to meet each other. I will suggest you Terminal 8(where Jet Airways lands) as meeting point.
Use Airtrain between the terminals to get to T8.

Thanks, yes it is Air France code share, so, what is a good spot to meet at terminal 8? and how do I get there?

Take Airtrain on the third floor of T1, on track 2 and get off next stop. At T8 you can meet by the coffee shop on the first floor(it is only one coffee shop there).

We will arrive from Mexico on may 13 at 11:30 p.m.
can i take the express bus? or is better the airtrain and then the subway? I´m going near to Penn Station.

I'm arriving at Terminal 8 and I need to connect with mu next flight at Terminal 3, Short connecting time

Take Airtrain on the second floor of Terminal 8, on track 2 to Terminal 3. It will take you no more that 5-10 minutes .

The express bus(NYAS) is not direct to Penn Station - you have to transfer at Grand Central to another bus.
It is better to take Airtrain to Jamaica Station and then subway E(or LIRR train).

for the information, very useful.

Hello. I will arrive at terminal 4 with Swiss at 12.35pm and have to catch my AA flight at terminal 8 at 15.35pm. Is that enough time even if the flight of Swiss is delayed? Thanks for your answer.

You have 3 hours transfer time - enough for JFK. You should be concerned if Swiss gets delayed more than 1 hour(it will give you less than 2 hours transfer time).

Me and my famely will arriving JFK at 27 june an transfer to Costa Rica. We will have about 6 hours before living fore Costa Rica is ther somthing we can do? somthing to eat or maybe a plase to hav a smoke??? hope you can help me? best regards from Tommy Kristoffersen from Norway
