Do to change of plans, I am traveling alone with my senior parents.. We have an hour between landing and departing. Is there a way to arrange for skycab or someone to meet the flight with a wheelchair to help us hurry and make the connection?
I am arriving from Lisbon at 03:25 PM, Terminal A, connecting to MIA on terminal B at 6:00 PM, all with AA. Is it enough to clear customs? I don't know if I have to recheck the baggage. Thank you
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, then go through security and to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time.
I am traveling from Barcelona to Toronto, Canada with a connecting flight in Philadelphia, both flights operated by American Airlines and on a single ticket Since my final destination is not in the USA, do I have to pick up my luggage and recheck it or does it automatically go to Toronto? ( I know I still have to go through Customs and Immigration though)
Yes, you have to claim your bags and re-check them after clearing customs.
My 16 year old son is flying PHL to MIA alone. Can I accompany him to the gate? Is there a fee?
It probably depends on the airline, so you should call and ask, but my 13 year old is flying alone and our airline said we could request a courtesy pass at the ticket counter (or at security, if after hours) for free to escort her to the gate. You do need to bring ID. My daughter is not young enough to count as as an unaccompanied minor with Southwest. I believe that DOES require a fee to escort. But at 13, nope. I just need to get a pass.
