Arriving on southwest terminal E claiming baggage then going to terminal A to check in to BA flight. Can I walk inside between terminals dragging mh bags? Thanks
I believe you will have to pop outside for a little bit. The lobby doesn't run all the way from E to A uninterrupted.
Is 60 minutes sufficient time in Philadelphia to connect a Seattle flight to Dublin Ireland? A terminal change is indicated. American Airlines
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hi,

I am thinking about buying a ticket which would give me a 40 layover in PHL to CUN (Cancun). I'm worried that the layover is too short? Do you think I would be able to make it?
If the first flight is domestic it is enough time but it obviously doesn't leave any time to spare if the first flight is delayed.
Hi! I'd like to know if I'll have time enough to get from Terminal F (flight from Quebec, I have to pass through US customs (or is it TSA?)) to Terminal A (flight to Miami) within 1h38min. I won't have any checked luggage.
Are you coming from Quebec City or Montreal? If you are coming from Quebec City you do not arrive in Terminal F, you arrive in Terminal A where you go through US Immigration, customs, and security. If you're coming from Montreal you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal and all you have to do in Philadelphia is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Either way you should have enough time.
I arrive from Quebec, that's why I mentioned the US customs. It is odd since it's inscribed on my electronic ticket that I'll land on terminal F and my next flight is in terminal A.
I will arrive from Ottawa At 5:15pm
But I have connection flight to Phoenix At 6:28pm ,I have one hr ?? Do You think that i have enought time i dont want To miss My flight ✈️🛬
I am flying internationally from PGH to CUN on AA with a connecting flight in PHL airport. Will I have to retrieve my luggage and recheck it, or do I just have to go to my connecting flights gate
PGH is the code for Pantnagar, India. Are you coming from Pittsburgh? (if so the code is PIT). Assuming you are coming from Pittsburgh, all you have to do in Philadelphia on your way to Cancun is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Yes. Flying in from Pittsburgh. Sorry for the confusion and thank you for the update

Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do in Philadelphia is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

I will arrive Sunday 10/23 coming from Doha/Qatar by Qatar airways. then I have a connection from PHL to Memphis by American airlines. can you guide me what should I do when I arrive ( bag check out check in and where to go)
You will 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.
is the re-check desk in the same area where I will claim my bags?

It's just after customs.
Thank you very much
