  • Check bags at B/C when flying out of F at PHL?
    Jun 18, 2016
    I am flying out of Terminal F but want to check bags and go through security at B/C at PHL. Is this doable?


    Yes, I believe you can do that.


  • Rechecking bags to a domestic flight following international arrival
    Apr 18, 2016
    Our tour group booked our flights on American into PHL but we had to make our own flight reservations for onward travel on American from PHL to our home town. As such, the flights are not connected. Does American Airline have a transfer desk in the International Arrivals hall where we can check into our second flight, or do we have to leave the airport & reenter to stand in line at the American Airline departures line? Thank you


    Since they will be on two separate reservations you will have to go to the American Airlines check in desk to check your bags for onward travel.


  • Connecting in PHL

    HI there, I am Flying to toronto from Dublin via PHL. Both of my flights are operated by US airways. Will I have to pick up my Checked baggage? Or will the bags be transferred for me from one plane to The next? Thanks'


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. Your arrival into Philadelphia will be like a domestic flight. All you have to do in Philadelphia is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will go through Canadian immigration when you get to Toronto.


  • Baggage Re-check
    Dec 2, 2014
    My parents are flying from India to Raleigh via British Airways with connection flight to London to PHA and PHA to RDU via US Airways. Do they need to claim the baggage and recheck them after customs at PHA? If so, do they recheck at the US airways Counter or will there be a quick re-check desk past the customs?


    You will claim your baggage after going through US Immigration in Philadelphia, Then you will go through US Customs, then there will be a US Airways/American Airlines re-check desk. Then you will go up to the departure level, through security, and to your departure gate.
