  • Enough time on American for connecting flight?
    Dec 7, 2015

    Flying American from lga connecting to flight to Aruba. We have 43 minutes from 1 flight to another. Is this enough time?

     

    It is enough time if the first flight is on-time but leaves no time to spare. You may have to take a shuttle bus from Terminal F to your departure gate in Terminal A.

     

    Ugh. Why does AA find the need to add drama. They have changed our flight times twice already. Ironically, flight is leaving earlier and getting in later. Thanks for the reply though. Hoping the flirst leg leaving at 5:59 is in eventful.....

    Will be traveling from houston bush international to Long Island islip. How do I get from one terminal to the other.....how much time do I need between connections.

     

    American runs a shuttle bus inside security from the other terminal to Terminal F where your flight to Islip will depart. 45 minutes would be about the minimum with for this connection, with 1 hour preferable.

     

  • Connection AMS MIA

    Hi I'm flying with a group of five two seniors, two adults and a child from Amsterdam to Miami with AA 799, with connection in Philadelphia arriving at 4.00 pm, the plane leaves at 17.35 pm its the same plane im ariving with. AA changed the flight time from 2 hours to 95 minutes is it enough to go through customs etc. etc. I've tried to change the flights so i have more time but AA help me unless i pay 400 $ each  and another 75$ fee.

     

    It will not be the same plane, even if it is the same flight number. 95 minutes is more than the minimum international to domestic connection time at Philadelphia so you should have enough time if you arrive on-time. There are other later flights to Miami if your flight is delayed.

     

    Thanks for your answer ZAP I've already called AA and they told me this flight will be the same plane. I checked flightradars history and about 50% of all AA799 flight will be the same plane. The woman told me that we will be place in a secured zone, never heard of it . Your answer that i have enough time is good for me even more when you say there will be more flights when we are delayed. Landmarq

    we as a family are flying to orlando on the 16th december with a connection in phlly man to philly AA735 due 1350 philly to mco AA723 due 1600 do we have to clear customs first and is AA723 from the same terminal as we arrive in from manchester thanx

     

    You will arrive in Terminal A, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. You will depart from Terminal A, B, or C. They are all connected inside security. You have enough time.

    Hi, we're due to land at 19.50 on Saturday and our flight to Manchester is due to depart at 21.00.....is that enough time ?

     

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

     

  • 30min layover in PHL enough time? [IND-->PHL-->TOR]

    I am landing in PHL Terminal C at 8:05pm with my flight leaving to Toronto from Terminal A at 8:35pm. Is there enough time to make this connection assuming my flight is on time?

     

    That is barely enough time assuming your first flight is on-time. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. However, be aware that some Toronto flights leave from Terminal F, which requires taking a shuttle, which would make the connection much more difficult.

    I will be travelling from London Heathrow to ATL connecting through PHL with delta booked under the same reservation. Would I need to clear security and collect my bags or will it be checked through to ATL? My layover time is 1hr 49mins. Is this sufficient?

     

    Yes, in Philadelphia you will arrive in Terminal A, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate, which will be in Terminal A, B, or C.

    Is it possible to find out which terminal we landed at in Philadelphia on American Airlines flight 719 from Rome on November 7th?

     

    I checked my texts from AA about our flights and found out.

     

    FYI all International flights that have to go through Immigration at PHL arrive in Terminal A.

    Hi, I have a flight from Frankfurt (DE) to Philadelphia, and then continuing on to Halifax (CA). All flights are with American Airlines, but my first arrives at 4:15 and the second leaves at 5:55. Will that be enough time?

     

    That should be just enough time if your flight from Frankfurt arrives on-time. 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 likely take a shuttle to your departure gate in Terminal F.

    I booked a flight thinking I'd be arriving and departing from the same terminal... turns out I'll be arriving to terminal F at 6:54 and leaving from either terminal C or A (not sure which yet) at 7:40. Is this enough time? If not, what should I do?

     

    That's enough time as long as the first flight is on-time. American runs a shuttle bus inside security from Terminal F to the other Terminals.

    Arriving in Philadelphia from Pittsburgh to catch a connecting flight to Punta Cana, departing out of Terminal A. I only have 49 minutes...will I make my flight?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time as long as your flight from Pittsburgh is on-time. All you have to do in Philadelphia is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Hey, I will be travelling from Newark (EWR) to Tel Aviv (TLV) with AA. I'll be landing in terminal F 20:08 and departing terminal A 21:05. Is that too tight?

     

    That's enough time as long as your first flight is on-time. American runs a shuttle bus inside security from F to the other terminals.

I am going there on K1 visa" fiancé visa". Do you think i have enough time to clear the security clearance and go for my next connection flight? thank you

     

    That should be enough time as long as your flight from Doha arrives on-time.

     

    thank you for your reply. Appreciate that a lot. I will not have check in luggage as i will send some of my stuff via fedex. i will only bring bag pack and i small luggage.

     

    Hello, I will be flying from Boston to Los Angeles through Philadelphia with a 35 mins layover. The flights have been rescheduled and I don't know the terminals, will I have enough time? Thank you

     

    I have a 40 min layover in PHl but have to go from terminal F to A. How long does it take the buses to get from F to A?

    In Philly, domestic arrival to D at 8:30A, international departure from A at 9:30. Is that enough time? Can I arrange courtesy shuttle for mobility assistance?

     

    That is enough time. If you have mobility issues you need to contact American Airlines for wheelchair assistance. There is no "courtesy shuttle".
