  • Getting worried about connection.. HPN - PHL - SAN
    Nov 24, 2015
    I booked a flight thinking I'd be arriving and departing from the same terminal... turns out I'll be arriving to terminal F at 6:54 and leaving from either terminal C or A (not sure which yet) at 7:40. Is this enough time? If not, what should I do?


    That's enough time as long as the first flight is on-time. American runs a shuttle bus inside security from Terminal F to the other Terminals.

    Arriving in Philadelphia from Pittsburgh to catch a connecting flight to Punta Cana, departing out of Terminal A. I only have 49 minutes...will I make my flight?


    Yes, that should be enough time as long as your flight from Pittsburgh is on-time. All you have to do in Philadelphia is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Shuttle from Terminal A to F
    Nov 22, 2015
    How long does the shuttle take? Is there a schedule?


    It runs constantly. It takes about 10-15 minutes.


  • 60 Minutes connection between EWR and TLV
    Nov 19, 2015
    Hey, I will be travelling from Newark (EWR) to Tel Aviv (TLV) with AA. I'll be landing in terminal F 20:08 and departing terminal A 21:05. Is that too tight?


    That's enough time as long as your first flight is on-time. American runs a shuttle bus inside security from F to the other terminals.


  • 1 hour 59 min connection between PHL to BTV
    Nov 19, 2015
    hi, i will have my Qatar airways flight arrive from Doha to PHL at 7;30am and my connection flight will be at 9;30am to BTV operate by American Airlines. I am going there on K1 visa" fiancé visa". Do you think i have enough time to clear the security clearance and go for my next connection flight? thank you


    That should be enough time as long as your flight from Doha arrives on-time.


    thank you for your reply. Appreciate that a lot. I will not have check in luggage as i will send some of my stuff via fedex. i will only bring bag pack and i small luggage.


  • Terminal D to A
    Nov 16, 2015
    In Philly, domestic arrival to D at 8:30A, international departure from A at 9:30. Is that enough time? Can I arrange courtesy shuttle for mobility assistance?


    That is enough time. If you have mobility issues you need to contact American Airlines for wheelchair assistance. There is no "courtesy shuttle".


  • Connecting to NYC
    Nov 17, 2015
    Hello, I am landing in Philadelphia (PHL) from Quebec City (YQB) at 12:29pm, and my connecting flight to New York (LGA) is at 13:49pm. I risk having secondary questioning at customs. Do I have enough time?


    Yes, I would say this will be difficult at best.


    Thanks for the reply! I will give a few more details : My flight from Quebec City arrives at terminal F and my flight to NYC departs at terminal C. I only have 1h20 layover time and I must go through customs so I doubt that I have enough time. I am flying with American Airlines and they said I definitely have enough time... Do you think It's almost impossible?

    I have an inbound international flight, Frankfurt to Philadelphia with a 1 hour connection before boarding (1 hour 30 minutes before outbound flight departure) going to Chicago, a domestic flight. Is this going to be enough time? I do not know which gate the inbound will arrive to and where the outbound flight will leave from.


    That is barely enough time if everything goes smoothly as long as both tickets are on the same reservation. If you do miss your connection due to a delay, American flies very frequent flights from PHL to ORD.


  • Elderly relative connecting on domestic flight
    Nov 5, 2015
    My elderly mother (90 yrs.) is flying from BUF to TYS connecting in Philadelphia. Her connection time is 1 hr. 25 min. I requested a wheelchair (she can walk-but with difficulty). I don't know the 2 gates. Will someone (AA employee) take her in wheelchair to her connecting flight...and is that enough time?


    Yes, someone will take her and yes, that should be enough time.


    Thank you.


  • Israel - PHL - Chicago
    Nov 4, 2015
    Arriving in PHL from Israel (American Airlines) with 1 hr 25 mins before boarding starts (1 hr 55 mins before departure) for the flight (Southwest) to Chicago. We will have checked bags. Enough time? Thanks!


    No, that is not enough time. By the time you have cleared US Customs you will likely have missed the Southwest bag check cutoff. You need to rebook your Southwest reservation for a later flight.


    Thank you!


  • Dublin - Philadelphia - Newark
    Nov 3, 2015
    Hi, I will be flying American Airlines from Dublin to Newark with a layover in Philadelphia. My layover is only 1 hour and 20 minutes long; will this be enough time? Will I clear customs in Dublin? If so, what will be the procedure when I arrive?


    Yes, you will 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 will arrive in Terminal A and depart from Terminal F. American runs a shuttle bus between terminals inside security.


  • Possible to meet up with long lost friend?
    Nov 3, 2015
    Hi all. I am travelling into PHL, arriving in terminal D (Alaska Airlines) at 4:40 pm. My long lost friend who I haven't seen in 25 years is travelling to Europe leaving from Terminal A (British Airways) at 6:40 pm. We'd love to say a quick 'Hi". Does this seem doable given customs etc.? If so, where would it make sense for us to meet? Any tips are very much appreciated.


    There is no customs when leaving the US. As long as your flight is on-time. You could meet her in the lobby of Terminal A from when you arrive until about 5:30 or she could get to the airport early, go through security, and then meet you at your arrival gate. All Terminals at PHL are connected inside security.

    Hi we are arriving with American airline from Halifax , NS , Canada and we are flying America airlines to Orlando and we have 1 hour is that enough time and we don't no what gates we are arriving from or departing from .


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Halifax. You will arrive and depart from Terminal A, B, or C. All gates are connected inside security and all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.


  • Time to clear customs and security in Phl
    Nov 2, 2015
    Hi, we are flying from London on 26th December via Phl and onto Fort Lauderdale arriving and leaving from Terminal A with 1,hr 30 mins turnaround time. Is this enough to clear customs and security.


    That is barely enough time. Also be aware that your flight to FLL could depart from Terminal A, B, or C, however they are all connected inside security.


  • Concerned about making 2nd flight
    Oct 21, 2015
    I'm going to from Orlando to New Haven with a layover in Philly. If there are no delays, my first flight should land in Philly at 12:41 in terminal C. My connecting flight is in terminal F and leaves at 1:30 (doors close at 1:20). I only have a carry on, so I know I don't have to go through baggage. I also know I have to get on the shuttle, and I don't have any security check points. But will I still have enough time to make my 2nd flight?


    Yes, as long as your flight from Orlando is on-time that should be plenty of time.
