  • Is 70 mins enough to connect from Tampa to Manchester flights?
    Nov 29, 2015
    Hi, we're due to land at 19.50 on Saturday and our flight to Manchester is due to depart at that enough time ?


    Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do in Philadelphia is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • 30min layover in PHL enough time? [IND-->PHL-->TOR]
    Nov 29, 2015
    I am landing in PHL Terminal C at 8:05pm with my flight leaving to Toronto from Terminal A at 8:35pm. Is there enough time to make this connection assuming my flight is on time?


    That is barely enough time assuming your first flight is on-time. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. However, be aware that some Toronto flights leave from Terminal F, which requires taking a shuttle, which would make the connection much more difficult.


  • 1hr 49mins connection
    Nov 29, 2015
    I will be travelling from London Heathrow to ATL connecting through PHL with delta booked under the same reservation. Would I need to clear security and collect my bags or will it be checked through to ATL? My layover time is 1hr 49mins. Is this sufficient?


    Yes, in Philadelphia you will arrive in Terminal A, 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, which will be in Terminal A, B, or C.


  • Flight from Rome on November 7th
    Nov 25, 2015
    Is it possible to find out which terminal we landed at in Philadelphia on American Airlines flight 719 from Rome on November 7th?


    I checked my texts from AA about our flights and found out.


    FYI all International flights that have to go through Immigration at PHL arrive in Terminal A.


  • Connection Time for Two International Flights
    Nov 25, 2015
    Hi, I have a flight from Frankfurt (DE) to Philadelphia, and then continuing on to Halifax (CA). All flights are with American Airlines, but my first arrives at 4:15 and the second leaves at 5:55. Will that be enough time?


    That should be just enough time if your flight from Frankfurt arrives on-time. 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 likely take a shuttle to your departure gate in Terminal F.


  • 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.


  • 49 minutes
    Nov 23, 2015
    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?


    Nov 8, 2015
    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!
