My son (he’s 21) only has 30 minutes for a connecting flight. He arrives at Terminal C and is departing from terminal A..gate A6. Looking at the terminal lay out it looks doable. Any suggestions?
It's possible but it leaves no time to spare if the first flight is delayed.
Thank you for your response. He is already in-route and “on time”.
Where will #4578 unload its passengers 11/11/17?
Have only 1:45 minutes to clear customs, recheck bags and get to domestic flight. We are Global entry and business class so hopefully clear faster .. Enough time or should take later connection to allow for 3 hour layover?
Yes, that should be enough time with Global Entry flying Business Class.
Thanks for your info...
Will be flying Qatar Airways from Doha to Philadelphia with connecting American Airlines flight to Kansas City. Layover of about 2 hours. Which terminal should I go to after clearing immigration and customs and do I have enough time? Thanks.
Your departure gate will be in Terminal A, B, or C. You will find out the exact gate the day of your flight. You can walk between all terminals. You should have enough time.
what terminal is flight AA5243 arriving in
what terminal is flight AA2113 leaving from
You likely arrive in Terminal F. You likely depart from Terminal B or C.
Have a flight landing at 10:07 at gate B11 and next flight at 11:05 at F15. Is it better to walk or take the bus to the f gates?
I would walk. You should have enough time.
ZAP, I have the reverse issue, arriving at F terminal and departing B terminal. Can you describe or point to a URL what the actual "walk" path is between the two terminals (B and F)?
Just follow signs when you get there. Unfortunately all the maps online sort of suck.
ZAP, yes, I agree. I had to dig deep into the text of the PHL web site and then use Google Maps in satellite mode to visualize the connecting walkway between F terminal and the main terminal section. Thank you for replying, though. Glad to know signs will be there.
We are flying in from LHR to Philadelphia and then have a connection to catch in 1hr :55min. Is this enough time for customs and collecting the luggage and walk to the next gate??
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hello:

We are flying in from Portlane Maine with AA and landing at 7:30 a.m. Our next flight to San Juan PR (also with AA) leaves at 8:30 a.m. Can you tell me how far the gate we are landing to the next gate is? I'd also like to know if once we land in PHIL we just go straight to the gate for San Juan or there will be another security checkpoint. thanks!
All you have to do in Philadelphia is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. you will find out your gates the day of your flight. You have enough time.
Good day,

I'll be travelling from PIT on American Airlines AA1903 and connecting on to BA 0066, hand baggage only, later this November. It leaves 1 1/2 hours for the connection. Is there security to go through on domestic - international connections? what is the usual terminal AA from PIT arrives? Thanks appreciated.
You don't have to go through security. You will arrive in Terminal A, B, or C.
Perfect thanks
Hey arriving from Munich at Terminal A west and have to go to F. I saw that there is a bus from A east to F but where do I have to pick up my luggage and where to give it back? And do u think it‘s doable? thx
All in Terminal A you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags. Then you can go through security and take the shuttle to F. You should have enough time.
