    Have 90 minutes between arriving international flight from Barcelona to domestic flight to Phoenix.. Party of 5.. Is this enough time for a returning international connection?

     

    That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.

    I am traveling from Ottawa-PHL-Atlanta with a layover of 50 min. in PHL. (AA4149 & AA2016) Do I need to re-check my baggage here and is this time enough for all, baggage claim, re-check, customs & immigration clearance and boarding? (I am not a US citizen)

     

    Since this is an international flight, your port of entry will be PHL. Having said that, you will go through the immigration process, then grab your luggage, then go through customs. After customs you will put your luggage back on a belt. Staff is there to assist you. After that you will still have to go through another security check before you can proceed to your next flight. 50 minutes is not enough time to make the connection in my opinion.

     

    Britta is completely incorrect. Ignore her post. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ottawa. All you have to do in Philadelphia is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.

    EOM flying American flight 1882 from RDU to SDQ via Philly. Only have 38 minutes to make connection to American 847 to SDQ. Can you help me with the following question(s)? Thanks. What terminal will we arrive at on RDU flight? What terminal will we depart from on SDQ flight? Distance between the two terminals? Would it be wise to spend extra $15 for seats in front of plane?

     

    You will arrive in Terminal A, B, or C. You will depart from Terminal A or B. You can walk inside security between all terminals and gates. Whether or not it's worth $15 is up to you, but it is a fairly risky connection.

    My flight in April is gonna arrive in terminal f at 3pm and my connecting flight to Dallas says it generally leaves from either terminal b or c at 413. I am a fairly fast walker. Would it be best to walk or take the shuttle in that time?

     

    Either should probably work. I would walk.

    EOM flying from Columbus OH to Aruba via Philly. Only have 35 minutes to make connection to Aruba. Can you help me with the following question(s)? Thanks. What terminal will we arrive at on Columbus flight? What terminal will we depart from on Aruba flight? Distance between the two terminals?

     

    Sorry: we are flying via AMERICAN AIRLINES Columbus to Philly and Philly to ARUBA EOM! need terminal info.

     

    You will arrive in A, B, C, or F. You will depart from A. You have enough time if the flight from Columbus is on-time. All gates are connected inside security.

    Whats is the best way to get from terminal F to terminal A-east with only about 50 minute layover?

     

    The shuttle is probably fastest.

    If possible, I would run.

    We land at gate C20 and depart 35 mins later from gate A25. American is saying this is a legit layover. Is this even possible? We can run fairly fast, but they also close the doors 10 mins prior to departure.

     

    Yes, it is possible if the first flight is on-time but obviously doesn't leave any time to spare if it isn't.

    1-Boston to Philly to Lisbon..terminal change in PHL? 2- Returning from Barcelona, PHL, Boston. Luggage check, immigration in Phl or Boston? terminal change in PHL? tnx

     

    All you have to do on the way to Lisbon is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All terminals in PHL are connected inside security. On the return in Philadelphia you will 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.

    I have a flight that comes in from Columbus, OH and then I have 40minutes to get to my gate for my flight to Punta Cana. Will this be enough time to get to make my connection?

     

    It's possible but it leaves no time to spare if the flight from Columbus is delayed.

    I have a flight from DFW-PHL on 29 June arriving PHL at 1655, with a connection to MUC at 1840. Is 1 hr 45 mins enough time for the connection in PHL? All flights are booked through BA and operated by AA. Thanks.

     

    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Philadelphia on the way to Munich is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    You don't have to do anything with your bags in philadelphia on the way to London. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. On the return from London, that is when you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security. You have enough time for both connections.
