    My itinerary is Paris to Philadelphia on American Airlines and Philadelphia to Seattle on Alaska Airlines

     

  • To check or not to check

    Time probably isn't an issue, but going in and out of security is drag. I will be flying on American Airlines out of Paris. 3 hours later, I catch a flight to Seattle on American Airlines. What process will I go through in terms of customs and then getting checked in on Alaska. Will I already be checked in on Alaska, when I initially check in on American? Is there any advantage to checking or not checking my luggage?

     

    Assuming both tickets are on the same reservation, You will arrive in Terminal A, go though US Immigration, claim their bags, go through US Customs, re-check their bags at the re-check desk immediately after, then go through security and to their departure gate, which will likely be in Terminal A or B. If you don't check bags then you don't have to claim and re-check your bags.

     

  • Connecting flight to Orlando

    We are flying into PHL from London and then connecting with a flight to Orlando. We are UK residents so have to go thru immigration before making our way to the gate. It looks like we have about 1 1/2 hours from scheduled landing to take off.. Is this enough? Never been thru PHL before

     

    You will arrive in Terminal A, go though US Immigration, claim their bags, go through US Customs, re-check their bags at the re-check desk immediately after, then go through security and to their departure gate, which will likely be in Terminal A or B. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

  • Flying from MAD to PHL, connection to LAS

    Hello, my parents are travelling on May from MAD to LAS with American Airlines, with a 3 hours layover in PHL. I do not know which terminals will they be arriving and departing, and if they can have some language assistance. They do not speak English, only Spanish. Do they need to take their checked luggage and move it to another counter? Thank you.

    I have 1 hour 19 min to transfer after the flight from RDU-PHL to go to FRA. Is the connection time will be enough? Thanks for the info.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    Thanks a lot for your answer!

    We have a layover in PHL 1 hour 30 min layover then connection to Boston. Is this enough time to go through customs, recheck bags and get to our Gate. Both flights are with AA.

     

    That's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    I will arrive Domestic by Republic Airline from DAC at 04.53 pm and depart International to Munich by AA at 06.35. Is this enough time? and will the luggage be checked through?

     

    DAC is Dhaka, Bangladesh. Anyway, I'm guessing your coming from DCA. Yes, that is enough time. You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You don't have to do anything with your baggage. There is no US Customs when exiting the US.

     

  • 45 Mins enough time? F to A

    Coming in From MHT to PHL on way to PUJ. I am told we will be landing in F terminal. We obviusly will fly out of A west. Going from one end of the airprot to the opther. Will I have enough time? How often do the shuttles run?

     

    The shuttles basically run continuously. You have barely enough time. However, also note that in the current schedule most MHT-PHL flights (those operated by the E-170) do not arrive in Terminal F.

     

    Thanks for your quick response ZAP. I ahve been watching, and a good number go to B or C, howver my flight in in July. I called reservations and they looked ahead and said it will be going into F. Hopefully the CS rep is incorrect or the gate will chanfge. I have seen a few later on in the day go to F. I have the first flight out of MHT at 5:05am on a Sat morning. I am just planning my course of action for the worst case senerio. What schedule are you referencing? I ahve been using the one on AA.com Thanks

     

    I am using the current schedule with actual flight operations through flightaware.com If your flight is operated by an E-170 aircraft it will not arrive in F as the gates there can't accept that aircraft. From what I can tell the 5ish AM MHT-PHL flights in July are all operated by the E-170.

    I am flying from LAX to Dublin, with a stopover in Philadelphia. I only have 1hour and 45 mins stopover. Will I have enough time? I'm an Irish citizen so I'm wondering if I will have to recheck my baggage? My connecting flight is with the same airline company. And be also rechecked at boater control, customs and immigration?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. All you have to do in Philadelphia is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.

    15-20 minutes on the shuttle bus.

     

  • 47 minute layover (ART-DFW)

    I have a 47 minute layover with American Airlines. I'm departing from ART (Watertown, NY) at 7: 15 a.m. and arriving in my connecting city PHL at 8:49 a.m. and then heading to DFW (Dallas Fort Worth) only 47 minutes later at 9:36 a.m. Is this flight connection possible?

     

    It's possible, but depends on the flight from Watertown arriving on-time. You will have to take a shuttle bus from Terminal F where you arrive to your departure terminal. If you do miss your connection there are plenty of opportunities for them to rebook you to DFW.

    if we go through customs in boston AA and our connecting flight at phl to aruba is with same airline is 35 minutes enough time and will we have to go through customs again

     

    There is no US Customs when exiting the US. All you have to do in Philadelphia is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if your flight from Boston is on-time but obviously very little to spare.

    I am flying BWI-PHL- MAN and have 1hr 5 Mins to get off plane and from terminal A to Terminal F is that long enough ??

     

    You have the terminals reversed. You will arrive in F and depart from A. You should have enough time. American operates a bus inside security from F to A.

     

  • Halifax to Philly layover

    I am a Canadian resident flying from Halifax to Philly for a 36 minute layover to a flight to Boston. Do I need to re check baggage or clear customs ? 36 minutes seems impossible if so.

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Halifax, but still 36 minutes is an incredibly difficult connection unless your flight from Halifax arrives early. You will likely have to change terminals.

    My husbands flight was delayed in the air leaving him only 40 minutes to get to our connection to ft.lauderdale. He's coming from Dublin. Will he have cleared customs in Dublin? I'm worried he won't make it. I'm waiting at the gate for him. Is there anything I can do to make sure he gets here quicker?

     

    Yes, he will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. All he has to do in PHL is walk from his arrival gate to his departure gate.
