We arrive in Philadelphia at 13.35 with a connecting flight to Orlando leaving at 15.34. Both flights are with American Airlines.
Both flights are from Terminal A but do you have to leave Terminal A to clear customs and go through security. If so how far is it and will there be enough time
Thanks
Yes, in Philadelphia on the way to Orlando 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 have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi all, is 90 minutes enough time between a BA flight from Dallas connecting to a BA flight to Rome?

I am arriving from Toronto on March 19, 2018 on AA (CRJ) flight 4211 and need to catch British Airway flight 1615 to Paris. Which terminal would I be arriving at and which terminal should I depart? Do I need to go through security check again and how much time do I need to go between the two terminals? Thanks.
You will arrive in Terminal F and depart from Terminal A. The flight to Paris will also be operated by American. You do not have to go through security again. You need about an hour for this transfer. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto.
I have only 1 hr 6 min. for my connection. Would I have enough time to go from terminal F to terminal A? What would be the fastest way to go from TF to TA?

I am taking flight 5468 tomorrow into Philadelphia. I will arrive at 12:24 pm. It says Baggage F on my itinerary. My connecting flight is 4745 leaving at 1:30 pm. Do i have to pick up my luggage at Baggage F and then find my connecting flight at Terminal C. Will I have time to do this? Will I have to go through security again as it appears I am flying into Terminal F and flying out of Terminal C. I'm not familiar with this airport.
No, you do not have to do anything with your baggage or go through security in Philadelphia. Just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
HI - I am flying with American Airlines from Ireland to Philadelphia arriving at 2.00pm and have a connecting flight with American Eagle at 3.10pm to Baltimore/Washington. Is that enough time to connect.
Yes, that is enough time because you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ireland so all you have to do in Philadelphia is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
