    Hello, i am canadian, and i am travelling on december 26th from orlando florida to halifax connecting in philadelphia with a 1 hour layover then flying to halifax from there. my first flight to PHL is with US airways and my second to halifax is with US airways express. I wanted to know if my layover time is enough and if i will go through security and wait in line in PHL risking me missing my second flight.

     

    All you have to do in Philadelphia is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.

    I have a flight from albany to doha with a layover in philly. 1) do i need to check out with my luggage during the latover? 2) how much time do i need to travel between the terminals, immigration, etc?

     

    If you purchased both tickets together you do not have to do anything with your baggage in Philadelphia. You do not go through US Immigration when leaving the US. All you have to do in Philadelphia is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you arrive in Terminal F, it is connected to the other terminals inside security by a shuttle bus. It is possible to make your connection in as little as 40 minutes comfortably.

    Hi, I am will be travelling to Doha from Detroit via Philadelphia by Qatar Airways, and I have 1 hr 18 mins to change the plane in Philadelphia from Terminal B to Terminal A. Do you think this is enough time as I read somewhere the close the gate 45 mins before the departure for international flights. and also what are the chances for baggage to be transferred from US airways to Qatar Airways within 1 hour. Thanks.

     

    They do not close the gate 45 minutes prior to departure. You should be fine as long as your first flight is on-time.

     

    thank you...and do you think the bags will get transferred from us airways to qatar airways withon that period of time. thanks again.

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time.
