I am flying domestically on Southwest ORD to PHL on Christmas Day, then I have a flight to London on AA that departs at 7:40pm. So I have to get my luggage (party of 4) and go thru security again. How much time should I allow for my London flight? Also, on the return (same airlines, Jan 5) I land at 3:40pm from London. What time do you think I should book my SW PHL to ORD flight? thanks!!
Southwest doesn't fly to or from ORD. If you are flying to Philadelphia on Southwest and flying out on AA, you need at least 3 hours between flights
thanks- of course sw doesn't fly from ord! i'm sorry-i've been so bogged down on AA trying to find award flights to europe my brain is scrambled- and i fly sw all the time- even have the companion pass!! thanks for the info- 3 hours? i have award tix philly to london, but had to book connecting flights from chicago separate -but now all on AA (no SW) so i won't have to collect luggage or go thru security after our chicago to philly flight. I found different connecting flights for my family. one gets in at 5:10pm and another at 5:57pm - given that it's the same airlines (AA) you think that's ok for a 7:40pm international departure?
My friend will fly in on Delta from SLC a week from today. I checked today's flight and it arrives at Terminal D. She will have a checked bag. I will fly from BGR on AA a week from today. I checked today's flight and it arrives at Terminal F. I'm hoping that I won't have to check my bag and can just go hunting for her. How would I get to her baggage claim from Terminal F?
You can just walk through the terminal to D and go out to the baggage claim there or you can exit the terminals in F and walk along the curbfront to D.
Hi. My daughter is traveling from Madrid to charlotte with a stop in phily. Will she be collecting her bags and going through customs in philly? We live in New Jersey and want to pick her up in phily. Otherwise she has to book a flight from charlotte to Newark when she lands in charlotte.
I am flying from PIT into PHL then onto Madrid (says terminal A on my ticket). I have about 1 h and 50 minutes between flights, is this enough time? Can you access all terminals in the PHL by walking or do you have to take a shuttle? It is an AA flight.
Yes, that is plenty of time. Yes, you can walk between all gates in Philadelphia inside security.
Thank you! Do you happen to know if when I arrive in Madrid with my final destination being France if I will retrieve my bags there or will they continue through to France from my original departure from PIT?
If everything is on the same reservation you won't have to claim your bags in Madrid.
Is there a Fastrack for travellers in transit to connecting flights? I notice online it says that Pre-clearance will be available at Punta Cana apt in MAY 2017. We fly this route on July 03 2017.. I got the transfer time incorrect from my previous question to you- it is actually 2h 5 mins! Does that help us make it through customs etc and make our connecting flight or is it still too difficult? Thanks. Your advice is great.
If preclearance is open at the time of your trip then all you will have to do in Philadelphia is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. That will be plenty of time.
