i am going from Abu Dhabi (AUH) to London (LHR) then a connection flight to USA , i am asking , can i take a laptop with me on the airplane because i am basically going to USA from london , and i booked the connections flight all together .
No, as the UK has the same rules as the US from those inbound countries.
Hello, in a couple of weeks I am travelling from Glasgow to PHL, then PHL to Detroit, both with American airlines. Will I have to collect my bags or will they just get transferred onto my next plane? Also my ticket doesn't state which terminal I will arrive/depart from at PHL - do you have any idea which ones it will be? Thanks
You will arrive in A, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate, which will be in A, B, or C.
Arrive in terminal F @ 4.43pm connection in Terminal B leaving @ 5:55pm - where is the connector from terminal F to E located? Is this the fastest way get to B? How much time should this take at a fast walk? If connecting flight is switched to Term A, where is the shuttle stop in Terminal F?
The connector is at the base of the terminal. It is a moderately long walk but doable. The shuttle stop is located obviously. You have enough time.
My son will be coming in from Barcelona on a Saturday in July at 4:00 pm on Finnair, operated by American Airline. He has connecting flight to Boston at 5:30 pm on American Airlines. Does he have to pick up his bags or can they be checked through and he goes through customs in Boston? and is that enough time to make his flight? This was booked by a student program and we did not have an option for a later plane!
In Philadelphia he will go through US Immigration, claim his bags, go through US Customs, re-check his bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to his departure gate. He has just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am arriving on an international flight from Germany and have a connecting flight to Orlando. Both flights are with American Airlines. My question is there a luggage drop off point for luggage after going through customs or do I have to go into the terminal to recheck my luggage for the connecting flight?
I'm British and tomorrow I fly from London Heathrow into Terminal A at Philidelphia International and then (assuming there are no delays) have 2 hours and 10 minutes to get to a connection at Terminal F (Gate 38 I believe). I'll be flying with American Airlines.
Is this enough time? Also is the shuttle bus quicker than walking? I assume I'll need to clear customs/security before heading to Terminal F? Please help! Thanks.
Yes, that is enough time. Yes, I would go through security in Terminal A and then take the shuttle bus to F.
