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.
I'm flying out later today from terminal F. Hows the conditions there?
Crowded, backed up flight delays?
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.
My daughter leaves for Nice, France on Jan.3 going to DC then to Brussels then Nice. Can my husband and I get a gate pass to sit with her at her gate while she waits for her flight? (She will be gone 6 months).
Only if she is a child.
I'm going from Cincinnati to Manchester England, and stopping in PHL for 55 minutes...is that workable? Also, If I miss my flight do they put me on another flight or do I have too purchase another ticket?
Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you arrive in Terminal F, it is connected to the other terminals by a shuttle bus. Yes, if you miss your connection they will rebook you. Although that may not be until the next day.
