    I'm flying from Munich to Atlanta and connecting in Phil. I believe I have to go through customs, Claim my bags and re-check them. I only have 2 hours and 40 mins, will that be enough? Thanks

     

    Yes, you have to do that in addition to US Immigration, customs, and security. You have enough time.

  • Toronto to Phil to Rome

    Hi, I am flying from Toronto to Phil., with a 1hr and 6 min connection time when I land till my next flight which leaves for Rome. Is this enough time? I am only bringing carry on. I am worried about the time from getting from terminal A to F, and the time with security. Thanks in advance.

     

    Edit: I mean from Terminal F to A.

     

    Yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Philadelphia is take a shuttle bus from F to A. You do not have to go through security.

     

    Will they see this on my ticket then? I have never flown internationally by myself before so this is all new to me? Will they just let me go through? How would I board without going through US customs and security again for when I go to Rome? Thanks for you quick reply btw!

     

    There is nothing you have to go "through". Your arrival into Philadelphia will be like a domestic flight since you will have already cleared US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You just show your passport to the gate agent when you board the flight to Rome.

     

    How long does it take to get from the shuttle to terminal A?

     

    The shuttle itself will take 10-15 minutes and walking to your gate will take another ~5 minutes.

    How I connect in Philly. Web site says flight lands at gate 1 (no terminal). Departure at Terminal F

     

    So you're flying in from Salisbury? Where are you flying out to?

     

    American Airlines from Terminal F to LA

     

    All you have to do in PHL is take the Shuttle bus from F to A/B/C then. It runs inside security.

     

    Yes, flying from Salisbury MD to Philly to LA on American

    Our flight lands in Philly (from D.C.) at 8:36 am at Terminal F. We depart at 9:50 am for Punta Cana from Terminal A...is this enough time to make the connection and do we take a shuttle?

     

    You take the shuttle. You should have enough time.

    I am flying from ROME to Philly and have a connecting flight to Arizona. We checked 2 bags and have no idea what to do. Our flight number is AA1881.

     

    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, go through security and to your departure gate. Your departure gate will be in Terminal A, B, or C. They are all connected by walkways inside security.

    Have Global Enttry and and TSA preferred. Carry on luggage and seated in First cladd

     

    All you have to do in Philadelphia is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. So 30 minutes is possible if you're willing to gamble on your first flight being on-time.

    correction - the first flight is American airlines. the second flight is British Airways operated by AA

     

    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, and go through security and to your departure gate.

     

    Thanks. Is 2 hours enough time to do all that?

     

    It should be if everything goes smoothly.

    I am flying out of Birmingham, AL on AA 5164 arriving in PHL terminal F at 5:02pm. I have connecting flight to Boston on AA 203., departing at 5:50pm. Is 48 minutes enough time to get from terminal F to A? What happens if I miss the connection due to delay of the first leg flight? Will AA put me on the next flight or do I need to pay extra? My ticket was purchased for miles.

     

    Yes, that is just enough time. If you miss your connection you will be put on the next flight

    I'm flying home from San Juan to London Heathrow with a connection in Philadelphia. Will I have to go through immigration, pick up my luggage, go through customs and recheck them again, like I had to do on the way over?

     

    No, flights from Puerto Rico to the mainland are considered domestic flights and there is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do on your way back to London is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Im flying to PHL from London during the christmas rush, arrive in terminal A at 16:05 and wanting to catch a flight to Scranton Pa (AVP) which leaves from a separate terminal or the furthest concourse, I cant remember the details. I would have 2 hours and 20 minutes to pick up bags, get to the terminal, check bags and clear security - last flight of the night,. do I book it or just plan to stay over?

     

    It will be quite difficult, but isn't impossible. I would only try it without checked bags.
