We are a family of 4 traveling from Orlando to New York with a connecting flight in Philadelphia with American Airlines Will our bags be checked right through? We have only 1 hour between flights is this enough time to disembark and get to the next flight before the departure gate closes? We done have gate numbers yet. Many thanks.

Yes, your bags will be checked through. Yes, that is enough time to go from one gate to the other if the first flight is on-time.
My son is arriving from Kansas City (flight 4598) on Tuesday 24 Oct. at 5.11PM. He only got 1 hour 19 min. to reach his flight 5466 at 6.30PM to London Heathrow from Terminal A. Have some questions: - Can you please tell us which terminal he will arrive to? - Does he need to pick up his lugage and have this checked in again? If so, where is the check-in? - What about customs and security - will he need to do this? - is it realistic to reach the flight with this limited timeline? I look forward to be hearing from you. Thanks!

He will arrive in Terminal C or F. He doesn't have to claim his bags if both flights are on the same reservation. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All he has to do in Philadelphia is go from his arrival gate to his departure gate if both flights are on the same reservation. He has enough time.
Hello, In March on the 7th I’m suppose to go to Switzerland till the 17th have’nt made reservations yet. I live in Florence South Carolina. I think the nearest airport is Myrtel Beach; So, I Would fly to Philadelphia
Hello, flying from Myrtel. Beach to Philadelphia’s overseas airport, then get a flight to Switzerland, on the 7th till the 17. Could you tell me how to go about this please.? For Switzerland find out how much is first class as oppose to a regular flight.? Thank you very much.
You have to ask a travel agent or go to an airline website about flight costs. This is Ifly.com, an independent airport information website. There is an airport in Florence, SC (FLO) but it only has flights to Charlotte. Myrtle Beach (MYR) and Columbia (CAE) are about the same distance from Florence if you don't want to fly into Florence. The advantage of flying into CAE is that Swiss Airlines partner United flies there, so you could fly Swiss from Zurich to Chicago or Washington DC and then on United to Columbia all on one reservation purchased through Swiss. However, that might be more expensive than one on American to MYR.
Thank you for responding so soon. I think I didn't explain clearly. My granddaughter & her husband made reservation & paid on Two round trip flights to Switzerland for 325.00 each; from N Y to Switzland, none stop. I live in Florence SC and I know about the airport in Myrtel Beach goes to Philadelphia,.Would I be able to Fly to philly to the overseas airport and get a flight to Switzerland none stop? Or, should I find a flight to go from Mrytel Beach to NY and catch the same flight they taking if I can. They going from March the 7th till March the 17. I would like to be on the same flight. Thanks again. PS.I really want to fly to Switerland first class; have to get prices for a senior citizen I’m 66

There are no special senior citizen prices. Flying first class to Switzerland is very expensive since lots of bankers fly there. The nonstop flight from Philadelphia to Zurich doesn't resume until March 25, right after you want to go. So you would have to go through New York or Washington DC or Chicago.
Arriving in Philadelphia from Athens. I have 1 hour 55 mins. to connect to Miami. Do I get my luggage, go through customs and still have time for my connection or do I go through customs/luggage in Miami? All American Airlines.
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. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I arrive at gate F11 and need to get to B4. I only have 51 minutes to get to my connecting flight. Do I have enough time? Should I walk or shuttle bus? I'm a fast walker. LOL This will be on Sat mid morning flight.
I am arriving into Philadelphia airport this evening and have one hour to get from terminal F to terminal C. Can you tell me the easiest and quickest way to get from Terminal F (Gate F38) to Terminal C (Gate C25) while staying in secured area so we don't have to go back through security?
You can take the shuttle or walk. Both keep you inside the secure area. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
I will be arriving from Albany, NY Terminal F and only have 50 mins to get to terminal B for flight to Indianapolis. Is it enough time to walk from one terminal to the next for a senior citizen? and how do you get there (B) from here (F)?
You can walk or take a shuttle to C and then walk to B. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
I will be arriving into PHIL Airport from Grand Rapids Mi on flight American Airlines 4895 at 9:51AM which I see is Terminal F and have a connecting flight American Airlines 805 out of Phil at 10:40Am which is 51 minutes leaving from Terminal A to Cancun. Should I walk or take the shuttle? Thanks
You could do either. I would probably take the shuttle.
