Hi, I've just booked a holiday in Florida for Aug 18. The return flight comes into PHL from Orlando international we have 55 minutes to get to our connection flight to LHR. Is that enough time.
Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do in Philadelphia is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Also note that the exact schedule will probably change between now and August.
Hi! I will have a long layover @Philadelphia (8:50h), and think of going to the see the city. Is this possible? Will I have to collect my baggage, or will it be checked through? I will arrive from New Orleans and then fly to Munich. Thanks!
You won't have to claim your bags if both flights are on the same reservation, so yes, you can leave the airport and go sightsee and then get back to the airport 2 hours before your flight to Munich.
Is it necessary to claim your luggage upon arriving, and recheck it for the domestic connection? Is three hours enough time?
Unless you are coming from Canada, Ireland, or the Bahamas, yes, you have to claim your bags to take them through US Customs, then re-check them at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate. You have enough time.
