Probably because it started on the E line, i.e., 8th avenue as opposed to 6th avenue for the F.

Yes one must always listen to announcements and if one doesn't understand the announcement ask another passenger if they understood the announcement.

Also the E train never goes to JFK. It just goes to the Sutphin Blvd Station where one can transfer to the JFK Airtrain.

The E train station has "JFK Airport" in the title, so it's correct to say you're taking the E train to JFK. It's called Sutphin Boulevard–Archer Avenue–JFK Airport

Actually you're right....everybody says Howard Beach - JFK, and its true - most people say take the A to JFK, but in that instance you can actually see the airport from Howard Beach, thats the only reason why people are scratching their heads over the E train thing, but its the same set-up - still gotta take the Air Train from the A, or the E, it's not like Heathrow....so you can say take the E to Sutphin-JFK, it actually sounds kinda cool, and if people keep using that name more often, it can help Jamaica's resurgence.

Although technically you are right and I haven't heard people just call the E subway stop "JFK" without the Sutphin Blvd/Archer Avenue part as in reality JFK is another train ride away.
