I'm flying to PHL from Manchester NH on American Eagle and connecting to an American flight to San Francisco. I need to change terminals. How long does this take?
45+ minutes is sufficient.
Hi I am flying from dublin next wednesday to Philadelphia and have a connecting flight from here to Vegas but our lay over is only 1hr 40 mins will this be enough time for us to catch our connecting flight what do we do on arrival?
You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. All you have to do in Philadelphia is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
Hi,
If I'm taking AA flying from Barcelona to PHL and having 1hr 44 min layover time before flying to San Diego (also with AA). Is this enough time? The flight is scheduled arriving at PHL around 3:55pm on a Saturday and leaving at 5:39pm on the same day. Do I need to take shuttle between terminals? I have one check-in luggage.

Thank you!
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 should have barely enough time if everything goes smoothly. You do not have to take any shuttle.
Arriving by AA From Manchester U.K. With connecting flight to Phoenix Az. I believe I arrive at A west and connecting flight departs C23. I have 2 hours 5 mins to make the connection, is this enough time, also as the flights were booked on 1 ticket with AA does my baggage automatically go to the connecting flight or do I have to reclaim it and take it through customs then recheck it for the flight to Phoenix?

Hi I'm arriving from Manchester UK with a 2hour 5min slot to connecting flight to Phoenix AZ. I've no idea about arrival/departure terminals or if the 2 hours is enough, also do I have to collect my luggage on arrival and check it in again for the connecting flight or is this done automatically? Flight date 6th October 2017

I am arriving from Toronto on March 19, 2018 on AA flight 4211 and need to catch British Airway flight 1615 to Paris. I understand that I will be arriving at terminal F and depart from terminal A. I only have 1 hr 6 min. of connection time. Would it be enough time for me to get TA and what would the fastest way to go from TF to TA? Thank you for your help.
You pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Philadelphia is take the shuttle bus from Terminal F to Terminal A and walk to your departure gate. You have enough time. Also, your flight to Paris will also be operated by American, not British Airways.
Hi, we have one hour 15 min from shannon flight 0777 to connect to flight 4859 to Baltimore. is that sufficient, do we go through customs in Philadelphia if we have connecting flight?
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Shannon. All you have to do in Philadelphia is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
