Yes, bags will be transfered as long as they are tagged accordingly to JFK or EWR when you check-in for your flight in BKK. You will also be getting 2 sets of Boarding Passes, (1) for BKK-SIN; and (2) for SIN-JFK or SIN-EWR depending on which flight you are on.

Thanks. That puts my mind at ease. I'm looking forward to seeing what a super modern and efficient airport looks like as I will be in transit there for about 4 hours.
In addition, you might know this. Since we are staying in Thailand for about 2 1/2 months, we are probably going to make a trip to Singapore for a few days and then return to Thailand. How difficult a process is it to obtain a Tourist Visa (60 days) from the Thai Consulate in Singapore. I will originally obtain a 30 day right to stay visa when I arrive at Suvarnabhumi airport in Bangkok. But need to get a 60 day tourist, out of country, so that I don't have to go out again before I return to JFK.
The Thai Consulate in Vientiane is somewhat of a nightmare for processing visas. At least it was the last time I was there. Hopefully, in Singapore it will be a little more civil.
Not familiar with visa application at Thai Embassy in Singapore, you can read more about the requirement here ---> www.thaiembassy.sg/consular-visa-matters
having an american passport, u dont have to apply for a visa if u r in town for business or leisure (less than 90 days). Every trip out of the country, u will come back with another 90 days from the date of entry into the country.
