Hi. Having a trip from Medellin (colombia) to Miami to Philly to Paris. My connection time in Philly is one hour. Will it be enough for us to catch our plane to Paris ? Thanks a lot, I'm pretty worried.
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Philadelphia is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I am travelling from San Juan Puerto Rico to Manchester UK. I have 1hr 45 min between flights. WI'll this be enough time for customs, collect bags and Re check etc. ks.
Flights from Puerto Rico to the mainland US are considered domestic flights and there is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Philadelphia on the way to Manchester is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.
Thanks very much for that. Feel much easier now.
Traveling from Montreal to St-Martin via Philly. In Philly airport, do we need to claim baggage and run through security before taking next flight to St-Martin? And then on our way back, when in Philly Airport do we need to get our baggage and clear customs/security before next flight to Montreal? Thank you very much
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. On your way to St-Martin all you have to do in Philadelphia is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. On the way back, in Philadelphia 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 to your departure gate.
Thanks ZAP. On our way back we have 1h40 in Philly airport to connect to Montreal flight. Do you think we will have enough time? When you are mentioning to re-check our bags at the re-check desk are we doing this at the Terminal A (our next flight to Montreal is from Terminal F). Thanks
You will re-check your bags at the re-check desk right after you clear Customs in Terminal A. That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Thanks ZAP After dropping bags at the re-check desk and going through security of Terminal A should we take the shuttle to Terminal F to gain some time. Thank you again for your advice.
Yes, I would take the shuttle.
Thank you for your time and advice Greatly appreciated
I have a "20" minute connection tomorrow going to San Juan. Philly sucks, and I will likely have to sprint to shuttle and sprint to gate before it closes. Is this even legal? What's worse, frequent flier miles means they'll give us no options.
Coming from Boston to Philly to Aruba only 1hr lay over is it enough time
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate
I be coming in philly from Houston Tx flying with American Airline at terminal A East .... going to baggage claim but how will I know which carousel to claim my bag ?
you won't know your carousel until you arrive. it will be on the monitors in baggage claim.
Can you give me example of what would the monitor say???
It would show you the number of your Carousel next to your flight number and the word "Houston". It should be fairly self explanatory.
Thank Zap ..
I never use a baggage claim before and alittle nervous about finding my bag
Theres a few videos on youtube. This may help https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gErXGhrZgA
How can I get to F28 from C21? how long wll it take? need shuttle bus? where can i take shuttle? i only have 48min. thanks a lot.
You can walk or take the shuttle. The shuttle location is fairly obvious once you're in F. That is a difficult connection but not impossible.

iam going from LHR to CLT with American airline and i have 7 hours connection time in LHR, i have United Arab Emirates passport and visa to only US , i don't have for London , could i go out for 1 or 2 hours outside the airport and come back again in these 7 hours????? and should i get a British visa too????
If you apply for an Electronic Visa Waiver, you can exit the airport in London. UAE citizens are eligible for these.
but will i have time to take my bags and go to immigration then put the bags again and then go out and come back ??????
You shouldn't have to do anything with your bags.
i am taking a flight from AUH to LHR by british airways , and from LHR to CLT by American Airways , so i shouldnt take my bags and put it again in the american airways flight ??????
No, you won't have to do anything with your bags if both flights are on the same reservation.
How long walking and info if there is shuttle service
There is shuttle service that leaves from between A and B. It should take less than 15 minutes.
