I arrive in Phil at 8:10 and my flight to San Diego leaves at 8:50. I will be going from terminal A to C. I'm with my 7 year old and dog. Can I request a cart or will I have time to walk to concourse C and make my flight.
Where are you arriving into Philadelphia from? Carts are for handicapped people with wheelchair service.
We are arriving from Manchester uk at 1:45 pm. The connection time to our Miami flight has now reduced to 1hr 55 mins. I thought the original 2hrs 15mins was cutting it fine. They are also advising of a change of terminal. I am worried this is not going to be enough time. Advice needed.
That is enough time as long as the flight from Manchester is on-time and everything goes smoothly.
Thanks. Will keep fingers crossed all goes well on the day.
Do we need to claim our baggage and recheck coming from Seattle to PHL (getting bags at PHL) and recheck in PHL to Glasgow flight? We land in terminal A I believe and leave from terminal C, all with AA. Thoughts?
No, you don't have to do anything with your bags on the way to Glasgow. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.
I have a 42 minute layover in PHL - if I arrive in Terminal C, how far is the walk to Terminal F?
You can get there in 10-20 minutes.
Great - Thanks!
I'm flying from Manchester UK to Harrisburg via Philadelphia with AA, with exactly two hours at Philadelphia. Is this enough time? (I didn't realise that I'd have to reclaim and re-check in my baggage at PHL when I booked the flight). I believe that the Manchester flight arrives at PHL terminal A and the Harrisburg flight departs from terminal F. Thanks.
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Thanks very much indeed

I'm flying to PHL from Manchester NH on American Eagle and connecting to an American flight to San Francisco. I need to change terminals. How long does this take?
45+ minutes is sufficient.
Hi I am flying from dublin next wednesday to Philadelphia and have a connecting flight from here to Vegas but our lay over is only 1hr 40 mins will this be enough time for us to catch our connecting flight what do we do on arrival?
You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. All you have to do in Philadelphia is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
Hi,
If I'm taking AA flying from Barcelona to PHL and having 1hr 44 min layover time before flying to San Diego (also with AA). Is this enough time? The flight is scheduled arriving at PHL around 3:55pm on a Saturday and leaving at 5:39pm on the same day. Do I need to take shuttle between terminals? I have one check-in luggage.

Thank you!
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. You should have barely enough time if everything goes smoothly. You do not have to take any shuttle.
Arriving by AA From Manchester U.K. With connecting flight to Phoenix Az. I believe I arrive at A west and connecting flight departs C23. I have 2 hours 5 mins to make the connection, is this enough time, also as the flights were booked on 1 ticket with AA does my baggage automatically go to the connecting flight or do I have to reclaim it and take it through customs then recheck it for the flight to Phoenix?
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. You should have enough time.
