  • which terminal
    Jul 20, 2016
    Hi I am flighing American Airlines from Manchester uk then change at Philadelphia and then board American Airlines to Orlando any idea which terminal I will be arriving and departing from and if there is a terminal change


    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, and go through security. Your flight to Orlando will depart from Terminal A, B, or C. They are all connected both inside and outside security.


  • Terminal C to F
    Jul 19, 2016
    I have to get from terminal C to F in 45 minutes. No checked bags only a carry on. Enough time?


    Yes, that is possible, but it obviously leaves very little time to spare.


  • Directions from Terminal F to Terminal C
    Jul 22, 2016
    I need the fastest directions to get from Terminal F to Terminal C. Can anyone help.


    It really depends how fast you can walk. You can walk/run now inside security between them. if you move quickly then you can probably make it in 5-10 minutes. You can also take the shuttle bus, but that requires a bit of a backtrack to get to C.


    Going from PHL gate F20 to B3 in 90 minutes, what are chances?


  • Arrive B3. Depart C18
    Jul 17, 2016
    Estimate time from B to C


    It should take 10 minutes or less.

    Hi, I'm traveling from Atlanta to Toronto connecting in Philly,do I have to recheck my Luggage in Philly. Thanks


    If both flights are on the same reservation, no, you do not. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You will go through Canadian immigration and customs when you get to Toronto.


    Thanks so much


  • PHL to PVD
    Jul 15, 2016
    I will be arriving at Gate B and need to get to Gate F. How long does that usually take? If my flight is on-time I will have roughly 1 hour.


    about an 1hr should be enough time.


  • Short Connection Time
    Jul 14, 2016
    We will be arriving from DFW to PHL at 11:40 am in Terminal B- gate B9 and will have 40 minutes to make our connecting flight to BOS by 12:20pm in Terminal C- gate C22. Will that be enough time for 7 people (including 3 grandparents who will not be able to run) to make our connecting flight as long as there are no delays?


    Yes, that is enough time if your first flight is on-time. Obviously it doesn't leave much time to spare if it isn't. AA has frequent flights from PHL to Boston if you miss your connection, however it may take awhile for them to rebook 7 people.


  • international flight, time thru customs
    Jul 14, 2016
    AA changed my flight recently. coming from Heathrow London thru Philly on to PWM (Maine) . My connection time is now about 90 mins. I have checked bags. Is this enough time to clear customs(if I have to) , go thru security again and make my connection to Maine? thanks


    added to above information: international flight is BA out of Barcelona, connecting in Heathrow then into PHL. arrive Term A. connector to final stop PWM Term F. 95 mins between . ROw 15 for seating. can we do anything in Heathrow to make it faster once we land in PHL? If we only took a carryon? That is the last flight to PWM that evening, so if this wont work, it would require an overnight stay.


    It's possible. Yes, taking carry-on only would help.


    Will I have to go thru customs in Heathrow, or PHL? Thanks


    In Philadelphia you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and take the shuttle to Terminal F. If you don't have checked bags ignore the parts about bags.


    Thanks for clarifying this, ZAP


  • Syracuse to London
    Jul 12, 2016
    Flying from Syracuse to London on AA with a connection in Philly in Sep/Oct. Is 1 hour 10 min enough time to make the international connection? Flights are all on one ticket. Thank you.


    All you have to do in Philadelphia is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All gates are connected inside security. You have enough time.


  • International connection from Dublin
    Jul 11, 2016
    American Airlines from Dublin connecting through Phili to Hartford. We pass custums in Dublin but only have an hour to get connecting flight. Will that work? (flight time was changed)


    Yes, that is enough time as long as the flight from Dublin is on-time. All you have to do in PHL is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • connection in philapdelphia from Montreal
    Jul 12, 2016
    Hi, I'm flying with american airlines from montreal to brussel, but i have a connection in philadelphia. Will i have to go through customs and immigration again in phialdelphia? will i have to passe through security in philadelphia? If so, i have 90 minutes in between flights, is it enough time? Thank you!


    hi I am flighing man (uk) to Orlando florida with a flight connection at philly both flights are American airlines landing at 1350 philly and dep 1550 philly to Orlando do I need to collect my bags and is the connection time enough its a bit shorter on the way back never done an indirect flight before cheers in advance


    Allison, You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Philadelphia is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All gates are connected inside security. You have enough time.


    jh, after arriving from Manchester you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security and to your departure gate. You have just enough time. On the return to Manchester all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Thank you !




  • Security for connecting flight after customs?
    Jul 10, 2016
    I am flying from London to Philadelphia on Delta, and then picking up a connecting flight on Alaska. Once I clear customs, will I be required to go through TSA security before my flight on Alaska


    Yes, you will.

    I am planning on flying from Bangor, ME to Fort Myers, Florida with a connecting flight in Philadelphia. We are flying with American Airlines and will have 42 minutes to change planes in Philly. Do you think that will be enough time?


    It's enough time if the flight from Bangor is on-time but leaves no time to spare if it's delayed.


  • Short connection time

    All flights AA: Airlline has just changed the departure time (Harrisburg, PA) from 5:55 am to 6:30 which is what is now causing the 25 min. connection time. Now arriving from Harrisburg at 7:20 (Saturday), need to make connecting flight to Toronto at 7:45 - traveling partner is already scheduled for wheelchair assistance.Will we have enough time to make the connection?


    It's not impossible since both flights are likely in Terminal F, but it is a big enough change that you can have AA change or refund your ticket if you're uncomfortable with it. it certainly leaves no time to spare if the flight from Harrisburg is delayed.


  • terminal connection
    Jul 7, 2016
    hello my complete flight ticket is from American Airlines and I will fly from BGR airport to PHL airport arriving to terminal F at 8:36 am. I have a flight connection to DFW to Mexico city at 9:17 am, do I have to pass security? because I have only 31 minutes of connection, but I would like to know how far is my arrival gate to my connecting gate please and if I have a possibility to make it! thank you


    No, you don't have to go through security, but you do have to go all the way from F to A. It is a very difficult connection unless your flight from Bangor arrives early.
