    I have two reservation codes: one for my domestic flight to PHL and another for my flight from PHL to Doha. Does this mean I have to collect my luggage in PHL and check it again for the flight to Doha?


    You can show your Qatar reservation to the AA agent in Knoxville and ask that your bags be checked through to Doha, but they aren't required to. If they don't, then, yes, you will have to claim and re-check your bags in Philadelphia.


    Thank you.

    Flying MIA to PHL to MAN (UK) with AA. Do I need to re-check bags at PHL? Thank you.


    No, you don't have to do anything with your bags in Philadelphia There is no US Customs when leaving the US.


  • Flight from Barcelona

    I will be departing Barcelona flying thru Philadelphia to Fort Myers. Where will I be going through customs and is 2 hrs connecting time enough. This will be a May trip.


    In Philadelphia you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Check bags at B/C when flying out of F at PHL?

    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.
