Hi, I am a Canadian citizen flying from Montreal connecting in Philadelphia, and I have 55minutes to connect to my next flight to go to San Juan in Puerto Rico, is that enough time? For checked in luggages, do I have to pick them up and go through customs? Thank you
Yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal so all you have to do in Philadelphia is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I will be arriving at 4:00 pm from Barcelona on October 19 on American, with a proposed flight to LAX at 6:27 pm on the same day (about 2 1/2 hour layover). Is this adquate to clear customers, recheck bags, clear security, etc? I don't run that fast.. I am 65 years old.
Flight was changed to give me a 39 minute layover to my Cancun flight. Looks like I'll be coming in at terminal F from PWM and flying out at A. Is this doable? Should we take the shuttle or walk? We're fast walkers. How long does the shuttle take to get from F to A?
It's not very realistic. If you were to make it, it would probably be by running.
Would the shuttle bus be faster than trying to run from F to A ? Do we have to go through security again if we choose not to take the shuttle?
You can do either inside security. If you can run, the shuttle bus is probably NOT faster.
