  • early morning wait times

    I'm flying to Mesa AZ on Friday the 28th. Flight at 5 am. Anyone have any idea what wait times are like for Delta in the early morning?

     

    Delta does not fly to Mesa, Arizona nor do they fly nonstop from Philadelphia to anywhere in Arizona. Security wait times very early in the morning are generally short everywhere.

    how far from a to c

     

    In Philadelphia you will have to 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. C is less than a 10 minute walk from the security checkpoint in A. You have enough time for your connection if you have at least 90 minutes.

     

    thank u very much for your quick response cheers

    I have a friend coming into Philly from Amsterdam at 1.35pm on Tues Aug 13th. Where would be the best place for me to meet her after she gets her bags and goes through customs?

     

    She will arrive in the lower level of Terminal A.

    After arriving from BCN in PHIL, do I collect my bags, go through customs, check my bags for next flight and go through security?

     

    Yes, that is the procedure. You will go through US Immigration first though.

    Hi I will be travelling from Ottawa with AA and will have 2 hrs before my flight to Doha. Do i need to pick my checked luggage and recheck them. Kinda confused when we pick the luggage and when we dont while connecting through US airports.

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ottawa. If both tickets are on the same reservation all you have to do in PHL is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate (likely on the shuttle bus).

    Leaving at 10:00 pm for London on Friday. Is the usual 3 hours arrival before flight still enough time or do we need to get there earlier because of security lines?

     

    3 hours should be enough time.

    I was wondering how check-in and immigration works leaving from PHL to Montego Bay. I am leaving at 10 an May 6th. Also, what is the process for my return through immigration.

     

    On your way to Montego Bay you just have to check in and go through security like any other flight. You just show your passport when boarding is the only difference. On the way back you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through customs.

    leaving thurs am from philly flight to miami how much extra time should we consider for security on top of our regular arrive 2 hours before?

     

    2 hours should be fine. There is nothing special going on at US Airports.

    2 family member coming to Philadelphia on an immigration visa first time. All the pertinant immigration procedure will get done at the Philadelphia airport. correct?

     

    They will go through US Immigration at the first point of entry in the United States, wherever that is. What is their route from Mumbai to Philadelphia? There are no nonstop flights

    I am flying from Toronto to Manchester, UK with a 3 hour and 45 minute layover in Philly. I arrive at Terminal F and depart from Terminal A. Will I need to go through security again, will I need to pick up my luggage, and will I have enough time to make my flight to Manchester?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in PHL is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is a shuttle bus that runs inside security from Terminal F to Terminal A. You have plenty of time.

     

    Thanks so much for your swift response! Much appreciated.

    My daughter arrives in PHL terminal F from Portland and then has 1hr 50 mins to change to terminal A for flight to Glasgow UK. Is this enough time?

     

    Yes, it should be plenty of time. US Airways runs a shuttle bus inside security from Terminal F to the other terminals, including A.
