Hello. We are flying from Barcelona (Spain)to Lima with two connections in Philadelphia and Miami, the thing is that we have a 2 hour layout in Philadelphia and we are worried that we will not make it, we have been told that we need at least 3 hours, is that so? The two flight are with AA and we arrive at Gate A25 and depart at A3. Would you recomend getting a fast track? Thank you!!
2 hours is possible. There is no "fast track". 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 in Philadelphia.
Phoenix to Dublin through Philly on American Airlines. Do we recheck bags ?
No, there is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Philadelphia is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
My daughter is flying into PHL - arriving at Gate C28. Flight out to White Plains at Gate F33. She has 67 minute layover.

2. Where to catch shuttle bus?

Just follow the signs. She should have enough time.
I have a weekend flight with a 42-minute connection landing Gate C27 and departing F2 at PHL. Can I make it? Better to take the shuttle bus or run? How often do the shuttle buses run?
Yes, you can make it. The Shuttle buses run almost constantly.

All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
We are traveling from Buffalo, NY to Philadelphia for a flight on to Amsterdam. We arrive at Terminal F and leave from Terminal A. Do we need to collect our luggage at baggage E and recheck our luggage?
No, you don't have to do anything with your bags in PHL if both tickets are on the same reservation. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.
I am flying into Philadelpia from Watertown, Ny on American Eagle to connect to a flight to Chicago on United airlines. How much time do I need to connect?
If you have checked bags, you need at least 2 hours. Without checked bags you can do it in an hour if you check in for your United flight online before leaving watertown.
