    I'm flying from boston on usair to phx and have 47 minutes to connect to an American flight, does this seem reasonable?


  • Enough layover time

    My round trip US Airways flights from PHL to SAN stop at PHX. In each case I have 1 hour between flights. Is this enough time?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. All US Airways gates at PHX are connected inside security.


  • Short layover. Will I have enough time

    My family is thinking about flying from Philly to Phoenix and then on to Maui in December. Philly flight gets in at 11:08 and Maui flight leaves at 11:40. Seems kind of close especially in December. Do you think it is enough time?


    As PHX has 3 terminals and your transfer depends on which airline you take, I suggest you open - then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS, and scroll down to the detailed text.


    That is tight, even though everything will be in the same terminal on US Airways. I would try to get on an earlier flight out of Philly.

    I get to PHX at 11 at night and mi connecting flight doesn't leave til 7:35 am the next day. What can I do for 8 hrs? Are there hotels (cheap ones) or rooms where I can rest? I won't be touring the city at those times for sure and I don't want to sleep on the chairs with my purse and carry on. I'm a student and I'm just looking for any suggestions
