  • Customs & Connected from St Maartin
    Feb 24, 2014
    Arriving us airways from St Maartin. Terminal B - Then have a connecting flight to Pittsburgh. Do I have to get my luggage and the go thru customs and then recheck my bags.. All flights with US AIR. I have 1 hr 10 min layover. Will this be enough time>


    Yes you will have to claim your baggage, go through customs and recheck then go through security. That will be very hard to do in just 70 mins. However US has lots of PHL-PIT flights if you miss your connection.


  • F to A?

    I'm flying from Manchester NH to Rome via PHL next week. Is one hour enough time to get from F to A?


    Yes you should have enough time: Free large shuttle buses, operated by US Airways, connect from Terminal F (gate F14) to gate A1.

    Is there a moving walkway between B and D, and how long does it take to go from B to D? Meeting my elderly mother at D and don't want to be late.


    Yes, there is a moving walkway - shouldn't take more than 10 minutes, 15 minutes at the most.


  • MSP-PHL-LHR connection and re-check
    Jan 18, 2014
    I will be arriving at PHL on a domestic flight with Delta (Terminal D), and then departing on a British Airways international flight to London Heathrow (Terminal A). My flights will be two separate bookings, so I assume I will have to claim my baggage, exit security to landside, check in with British Airways and go through security again. How long must I allow? And should I transfer to Terminal A airside and then exit security, or exit security at Terminal D and then transfer landside? Is there an easier way if I've checked in online and only need to bag-drop? I'm concerned that a couple of hours may not be enough to connect. Thank you.


    I would allow at least 2 hours, preferably 2.5 hours for your transfer. You can't transfer to A airside since you will have to claim your baggage in D.


    Also, Delta and British Airways do have an interline baggage agreement, so even though Delta is not obligated to check baggage through to BA, it doesn't hurt to ask the agent at your origin point. Be sure to have documentation for your BA flight.

    I will be travelling to Seattle from Madrid in mid-December, and I will be taking the connecting flight in Philadelphia. The flight from Madrid has an scheduled arrival at 04.05 PM and the flight to Seattle leaves at 5.55. Will 1 hour and 50 minutes be enough time to go though customs, secutiry and change terminals? Do yu know what procedure I'd have to follow in case I miss the second flight? Any information or previous experience will be helpful. Thank you.


    You will go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the re-check desk. Then you'll go upstairs and through security. All terminals at PHL are connected beyond security and you will be able to walk to your gate from your arrival terminal. You should have plenty of time. If your flight is late and you miss your connection you will automatically be rebooked on the next available flight, possibly involving a connection elsewhere such as Phoenix if there is no later nonstop to Seattle.
