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.
Thanks,perfect
Flight AA4810 HVN is delayed and connecting flight is AA 1647 PHL. I need to get from terminal F to terminal C to make my next flight and it appears to be around a 45 minute layover now. Is this doable?
Arriving gate F19 on flight 4810 and leaving gate C28 flight 1647 today. Only have 40 min. I have a carry on bag. Should I run or take the shuttle? Please advise!
I would probably run, but if the first flight is on-time you have enough time either way.
Thank you!
Flying American on 8/20/17. Arrive at F32 at 12:05. Connecting flight at C20 at 1:00 pm. Never been to this airport.Everyone said (including someone at PHL) that the shuttle is the way to,go,not,walking/running. True?
Yes, that's probably the best way. You should have enough time.
How early should I get there Are my bags being checked in there for international flight Or at JFK will I have to retrieve my bags
Are you flying PHL-JFK-Ireland all on one reservation? If so you don't do anything with your bags in JFK. Get to PHL 90-120 minutes before your flight.
AA Flight 737 from LHR was delayed and is now posted to arrive late at A Terminal, Gate 19, at 7:44 PM. Connecting flight AA 5195 is posted to depart Terminal F, Gate 38, at 8:25 PM. What is best plan? Can this connection be made -- carried on luggage, but CUSTOMS may be an issue. Advice? Thanks!
With no checked bags you still have a chance. There's a line of storms headed towards PHL that may delay 5195 as well.
Thanks for your response!
Transferring between AA 1631 (terminal c) to BA 1607 with 60min. in between. Will this be enough time and will I need to go through customs?
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. Also, both of your flights are operated by American. You have enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
AA1631 delayed so that it is now projected to land 15 minutes before BA1607 is projected to leave (not showing as delayed at this time). Is a 15 minute window for transfer achievable? (terminal C to terminal A)
Thank you for the response!

Flight AA1631 delayed so that it lands 15 minutes prior to BA1607 departure time. Is this transfer from C to A achievable in ~15 minutes?
Hi,

I am arriving at PHL from MAN and then traveling to Tampa, I have 1h 50m in PHL, is that enough? Both flights with AA
Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I have a 55 Minute Layover and I need to get from terminal F to B. Fastest route?
Take the shuttle bus. You have enough time.
