Hi
I arrive in to terminal 8 this friday night from Sydney (via LA) and have friends meeting me at terminal 8. Are visitors allowed to meet me at the Gate off the plane, or is there a seperate area to meet visitors after you collect your baggage?

Visitors are not allowed to go to the gates. They can meet you by the baggage claim, on the first floor at Terminal 8.

Hi,

How can I get from Budget rent a car office to Terminal 8?thnz

Go to the third floor of the Airtrain station and take ANY train. Listen to the announcements in the train - get off when they announce Terminal 8.

Hello,

I hope you can help me. I'm arriving from Mcallen, Tx (American Airlines), next Saturday. And a couple of fiends’ flight arrives from Monterrey, Mx. (international flight - Aeromexico)

Where do we can meet to go to our hotel? And what is the best and cheapest way to get the hotel in 42th

Best Regards,

You will be arriving at T8, they - at T1. You can meet at either terminal, 1st floor, by Ground Transportation counter.
I will assume the hotel is located near Times Square - West 42nd street - here are some of most common options that you have in this case:
1. Taxi(the fast and easy one)
Yellow cab (from JFK to any point to Manhattan) costs flat rate of $45 + bridge toll($5.50). The price is for the whole taxi, not per passenger.
2. Public(the cheap one)
Take Airtrain from any terminal on track 1 to Jamaica Station( be careful - on that track there are two alternating trains going to different routes; check the sign above the doors as the train arrives; the red colored sign is Jamaica one). Then take subway line E to 42nd street stop. Cost-$7.25/passenger.
3. Shuttle
There is shuttle(look for it at Ground transportation
counter or Welcome Center) that goes to any hotel in Manhattan for $18.50 per person.
4. Express Bus
NYAS(New York Airport Service) bus will take you express to Times Square for $15/passenger. The bus leaves every 20 min in front of each JFK terminal. You can buy tickets on the bus or from their representative in front of the terminal.

Next Friday evening we're arriving at JFK terminal 8 via San Francisco and our husbands fly in from the UK and arrive at terminal 7. Their flight is scheduled to arrive 15 minutes before ours, but given we would have cleared customs in SF and they'll have to clear customs in NY where would you suggest we meet... which terminal and can you suggest a meeting place.

Thanks

Very good place to meet is at Terminal 7, 1st floor , by Starbucks coffee shop. There are seating places there.
From T8 take Airtrain on the second floor, on track 2 and get off next stop at T7.

Hello,
I hope you can help me to sove this problem:
My son is starting just now from MXP (Italy) with the American Airlines 199 flghth, ariving at JFK at terminal 8 and has an AA conecting flight to Chicago from T8.
BUT the flight form MXP has a 3.30 hours of delay, so, the Chicago connection is lost.
For this reason, my son received a boarding pass of DELTA (JFK to ORD) from Terminal 3.
Can you please tell me how can he re-check the bag ?
And also, what is the esiest way to go from T8 to T3 ?

Thank you in advance.

Let him collect his bags and take Airtrain on the second floor of T8, on track 2 to Terminal 3(Delta). There he can re-check his bags .

Dear JFK Employee,

I arrive on Delta from Stockholm at 2pm, so I guess I will be at terminal 3? How do I get from there to terminal 8? If I book a flight on American at 5pm will that be enough time to clear customs and get over to terminal 8?
