    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? thanks

     

    It's just after customs.

     

    Thank you very much

    I am flying in from San Juan Puerto Rico and connecting to Lhr I have 2 hours from landing to take off will this be long enough

     

    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Philadelphia is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Flights from Puerto Rico to the mainland US are considered domestic flights.

    Hi all. Im looking to book a flight from Manchester in the UK, with stopover for 1.5 hours in PHIL, with a flight then on to San Juan, Puerto Rico. Do I need to reclaim my bags etc in PHIL and go through customs and will 90 mins be enough? Appreciate any tips. I can book a different flight if it's not recommended although this is my preferred. Thanks.

     

    This is the bare minimum recommended international to domestic connection time at PHL. Yes, 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.

    Hi, I'm travelling from Toronto through PHIL to Doha with my family. Do I have to re-check my baggage at PHL? I have 2 hours transit time. Is it enough?

     

    If both flights are on the same reservation you don't have to do anything with your bags in philadelphia. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto.

  • Terminal F- Terminal B in 51 minutes?

    Coming from Islip into PHL at 1:04 Terminal F and leaving at 1:55 Terminal B, gate 16 (TOMORROW). I've read conflicting opinions regarding shuttle times vs. walking. THREE Questions: 1- Can I walk to Terminal B without going through security? 2. How long does the walk take? 3. What would you do? If I miss this connection I'm toast... Thanks in advance :)

     

    Yes, you can now walk from F without going through security - this is new. The walk will probably take about 15 minutes. I personally would probably take the bus, but either is probably fine if the flight from Islip is on-time.

     

    Thanks!

    I have flight arriving from STL at 3:02 at gate B3 terminal b I have to be at gate F17 Terminal F at 3:50 is this enough time

     

    It's just enough time if the first flight is on-time. There is a shuttle inside security to Terminal F.

  • Time needed for transfer from Heathrow flight to Boston flight

    I have option of 1.5 hr. layover or 3 hr. layover when flying AA from Heathrow to Philadelphia, and then on to Boston. Am I reasonably safe with booking the shorter layover? Thanks.

     

    No, it's not impossible but I wouldn't call it "safe". I'd book either the nonstop AA or BA flight to Boston or the 3 hr connection.
