Anyone fly out of Terminal E (Frontier) early morning flight recently? What was the wait time to get through security? Do I really have to be there at 4:00 AM for a 6:00 AM flight?
The terminal D-E security checkpoint can get busy as it serves two terminals. However, the security line is usually no more than 15-30 minutes. I have PreCheck and usually get to my gate within 4 minutes from drop off when I don't check a bag. Two hours early is usually not necessary at PHL.
We're not very familiar with PHL Airport and will be picking up people at Terminal E. Should we park? (Is it free for just picking up? Is it a far walk to waiting area (health issues)? Can we stand curbside? Should we stand curbside and just keep looping if we're told to move? Thanks for any help.
Parking is not free but short parking (less than 2 hours) is usually just a few dollars. You cannot stand curbside - you would have to keep looping.
