We arrive in Philadelphia at 13.35 with a connecting flight to Orlando leaving at 15.34. Both flights are with American Airlines. Both flights are from Terminal A but do you have to leave Terminal A to clear customs and go through security. If so how far is it and will there be enough time Thanks
Yes, in Philadelphia on the way to Orlando you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

Sorry ......connection time is 2hrs 45mins is this enough time to go through customs? I understand my Bags will be checked straight through to my final destination but i need to collect my bag from a carosel and place it on another one? anyone fill me in exactly what i should look out for or do ( nervous about the connection) thanks .
Yes that is enough time. Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, take them through US Customs, re-check them at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. Everyone has to do this when they enter the US.

There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You will just go through security in Charleston. All you have to do in PHL is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
