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.
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).
I will be arriving from Ottawa with AA connecting to Doha on a 2 hr layover. Do i need to pick my checked luggage and recheck them again? Kinda confused when do we pick the luggage and when we dont need to while connecting through US airports
