    What does it cost to park at the airport? Are there cheaper off-site options?

    i am flying Manchester UK to Las Vegas with 2 hour 9 mins lay over in philadelphia, i need to get from terminal A to terminal b and get though immigration. do we have to collect our bags and check them in to the connecting flight or are they automatically sent to the connecting flight ... also will we have enough time to catch the connection to Vegas.


    Check with your airline first (if you use different airlines) if they will transfer your bags to your next leg of your journey. If not, you would need, after customs clearance, take your bags & check them in with your connecting carrier. International arrivals are processed in Terminal A-West. Thereafter, you go through security check. Terminals A & B are connected by post-security walkway, and the B gates are numbered B1-16. You should be able to make it in the given time frame, even with baggage check-in (which would involve going through security check thereafter).


    Both of your flights are likely on US Airways. In which case you will collect your bags in immigration and re-check them with US Airways when you clear customs. That should be enough time. Note that your Vegas flight could leave from a number of different concourses/terminals used by US Airways mainline flights.

    I have a flight leaving at 5 am. I also will be checking a bag. Any thoughts as to what time I need to arrive? And will terminal 2 be open?


    Can't tell you when your terminal opens as you don't mention which Airport you depart from. In general, you should arrive an hour prior to scheduled departure if checking in bag. Contact your Airport.

  • Connection time

    We've had numerous flight changes for our flight to Ireland. The latest gives us 1 hour to change airlines in Chicago. We arrivefrom St. Louis on AA at 2:50 pm and depart at 3:50 pm on Aer Linguis. Is this a realistic amount of time? Will we have to get our luggage fro AA or will they transfer it to Aer Linguis? Thanks!!


    I take it you arrive at ORD O'Hare (not MDW Midway), in which case you arrive via AA at Terminal 3 (T3). Your departure terminal via Aer Lingus is in T5. The ATS shuttle train takes you from T3 to T5 (yes, T5 is the next stop), and runs every few mins; however you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate. (T5 has M gates which wrap around the concessions court: to the left (gates M12-M21) and to the right (gates M7-M1), and extends northward in the center to gates M8-M11 (prepare yourself for long walks from check-in to gates). One hour is tight, but if incoming flight is not delayed you should be able to make it in time.

  • T-C to T-E

    How long to get from T-c gate C30 to T-e Gate E14? Only have 35 minutes & elderly. What is the best way to get there fast.


    Which Airport are you arriving at? 35 mins for transfer seems to be quite tight. I suggest you open - enter your airport on top, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.
