Hi I am arriving in PHL for a connecting flight to punta Cana. My flight gets in to PHL at 5:02pm at terminal f and the other flight leaves at 5:55pm from terminal a. Will I have enough time?
It's possible, it doesn't leave a lot of time to spare if the first flight is delayed. American runs a shuttle bus inside security from F to A.
I've seen a flight itinerary that leaves Nashville at 1655, arriving PHL at 1956. Our onward flight to Manchester, UK leaves at 2050, giving 54 mins. I believe we need to change terminals but I'm not sure which terminals are involved. Will this be enough time, regardless of which terminal we need to get to? If there isn't enough time, will American Airlines put us on the next available flight at no charge? Thanks!
Yes, that is enough time. All terminals and gates at Philadelphia are connected inside security and all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The next available flight wouldn't be until the next day, but yes, they would put you on it if you missed your connection.
thanks :)
We fly STT-PHL-MSP with a 36 min connection at PHL. Should we be concerned and try to find some other route to MSP?
That's enough time if the flight is on-time. Flights from the USVI to the mainland are considered domestic flights so all you have to do in PHL is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
We have only 30 Minuten for connection from a San Juan flight with AA to catch the flight to Boston. Is it possible?
It's possible but it leaves no time to spare. American has frequent flights from Philadelphia to Boston if you miss your connection.
I will be flying in from Halifax (Canada), what is the quickest way to get to Terminal A from F since I will be going on a Qatar Airways to Doha and I am really worried since my connection time is only 1 hour?
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Halifax. Just take the shuttle from F to A. It runs inside security.
I'm flying into Philly from Rome and then onto Indianapolis with a 2 hour 20 minute layover in Philly. I fly into terminal A and leave for Indianapolis from terminal F. Do I have to collect and recheck my checked bag, and can I do it all in 2 hours and 20 minutes??
Yes, that should be enough time.
I will be arriving at GATE F (from canada) and need to catch a flight to DOHA an hour later. what's the best way to get from GATE F to A and is an hour enough time?
There is a shuttle that runs inside security between F and A. Yes, it is enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Is one hour and 40 minutes enough time to land in Philly, claim our checked bag before going through customs, re-check the bag and make our flight home given the fact that we must shuttle to another terminal?
Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I haven't flown overseas since 2000.I'm looking at a flight from Orland to Paris with a 2 hour layover in Philly. Will this be enough time? (Flights either both AA or AA/BA).

For the return flight, we'd need more time, since we'd have to clear customs in Philly before continuing to Orlando, correct?

Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do in Philadelphia on your way to Paris is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I am travelling to Minneopolis from London via Philadelphia.
I have only 1 hr 50 mins in Philadelphia for my next flight to Minneapolis. Will this be sufficient time for Customs, Immigration, baggage claim, again baggage check-in and all security checks?

Please help.
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
