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.
I will be traveling to San Juan from Pittsburgh through Philadelphia in 2 months. My flight from Pittsburgh gets into Philadelphia at 7:18am and my connecting flight leaves for San Juan at 8:20am. Is this enough time to make it with a checked bag?
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hi.
I'm planing a round trip to Ireland starting at the end of the August and coming back at the end of September. I do normally go to Ireland through MFE-DFW-LHR-SNN but this time I would like to try MFE-DFW-PHL-SNN using American Airlines.
My question is how much time do I need for connecting flights at PHL when going to SNN and when coming back.

Thanks!

Both ways 45 minutes to an hour is sufficient. On the return you pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Shannon.
Thank you!
I land in the airport from Athens Greece at 3:45 PM. My train leaves at 4:58 PM from penn station. Enough time maybe or no way?
I MEANT THE STATION AT 30TH STREET.
I don't think that's enough time.
What is the fastest route from terminal C to Terminal A?
Walking is the only way.
how much time will it take?
10-15 minutes probably.
We want to travel by subway/bus from PHL to University City. Do we board at terminal A and how do we go from terminal F to terminal A?
The SEPTA station is outside Terminals A, B, and C. You can also walk there from Terminal F.
What is the fastest and most convenient way to get from Terminal B to F and what is the typical time it takes to do so?
You can walk or take the shuttle. it takes 15-20 minutes.
If Terminal F connected now to rest of terminals, without having to go out and back thru security?
Yes, it always has been with the shuttle but now there is also a walkway.
