Worth noting that the T1 group has been chosen to rebuild T1-3 in a single, larger terminal that will connect with T-4. I believe Delta and IAT also had a proposal to redevelop that space, but the LH/JAL/AF/KAL group won out. There's also a plan for the final extension of T-4A in the new renderings. I'll be interested to see where Delta's T2 gates wind up when all is said and done.
I've always thought TOGA's T1 was odd, since T1 now belongs to 4 airlines in 3 different alliances, so common use of facilities (check-in, tickecting, security lanes, lounges, boading areas...) is quite low. Not even all LH Group fits there.
but if T1 Is expandend I could see it becoming the place for all Star Alliance airlines at JFK, and the eastern side for non-DL Skyteam to ease connections onto T4. JL would be left being the odd one there, but I doubt they will want to move to AA's Terminal while they are part of TOGA.
DL T2 gates will be located/built west of T4. Be it a new T123 terminal or not, but just on the land previously used by T3.
I believe QF have or are moving to T8 - any other Oneworld or other carriers operate there already with AA?

My guess on where everyone ends up?
Where does QR end up? AA doesn't like QR. QR needs its own lounge space. I could see it ending up in south terminal.
Wait... what? Why do they need their own lounge? Granted they like the idea of premium ultra exclusive lounges like at LHR or CDG, but how many flights a day are they having at JFK? They are know just using partner's lounges at both T7 and T8 and seems fine.
If for some reason AA doesn't want to accept QR for any reason, I guess they can´t be forced... (even though they currently have an agreement) They could operate alongside JL. I guess TOGA (AF LH KE JL) won't be disolving anytime soon.
AA will be maxed out at T8 with OW partners moving in. So it's down to the north and south terminal. My guess is the south terminal will be a lot more expensive to operate due to having big name international airlines needing to block wide body gates for long period of time. And will be squeezed for lounge space.
At some time, T8 would have to be built at its original planned size (almost double). but for sure, BA will be using its own terminal until the very last day instead of having to pay someone else , so likely be last to move into T8.
