Arriving from England at 13.20, taking a connecting flight to tampa at 15.20. Is two hours enough to clear security & passport control and get to the domestic terminal from the international terminal?
Arriving in terminal F and leaving out of terminal A (both domestic flights) with only a 45 minute layover. Am I screwed? Already booked...wasn’t really thinking. Now I’m worried my checked luggage will go missing and it’s a non refundable flight.
It's possible, there is a shuttle from F to A inside security, however, it obviously leaves no time to spare.
Better to take shuttle or run?
I would probably take the shuttle, but either will work.
will luggage make the connection? I have the same time frame in May? On a non refundable flight into terminal F and out of terminal A. Also how often do the shuttles run?
Flying American from Fort Lauderdale to Philadelphia then to Prague all with American. The layover in Philadelphia is 80 minutes is that enough time to go from domestic to an international flight even if it is with the same airline? Thank you so much for your help.
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in PHL on the way to Prague is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.
Thank you ZAP
Arriving at terminal A at 9:27 with a connection to Jacksonville at 10:02 at terminal C, is that enough time to go between terminals as long as the flights are on time? Also will our luggage get on the flight to Jacksonville?
Yes, that is enough time, but it leaves no time to spare.
Can I walk from Terminal A to Terminal F? How long will it take? Thanks for your help!
Yes, you can. It's a 15-20 minute walk, depending on where exactly in those terminals you're coming from and going to.
Arriving at B2 with a 25 minute connection to gate F36. Will the shuttle get me there in time?
That will be very difficult. I would try to run instead.
how often does the shuttle depart from C16? how long is the ride to F14. I assume this is a direct ride not stopping at other terminals?
The shuttles leave about every 5 minutes and take about 5 minutes.
Hi, is it 1hour and 15 mins enough to go from one terminal to another? I will come from a domestic fly (NC) and I will catch a fly for italy. Thank you
Yes, all gates are connected inside security, all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Flying in to Philly and getting a connecting flight to Cancun. Have 50 minutes between flights. Any advice, besides run?
Thanks
Yes, that is enough time. If the first flight is domestic all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
If I book a flight home from Barcelona, Spain AA743 arriving at 4:00 pm do I have enough time to catch my AA2171 Flight departing at 6:15pm to Portland, Oregon with a checked bag through US customs?
Yes, that is enough time.
We are arr from CUN to PHL at 19.20 with AA805 and our connecting flight to LHR with AA728 leaves at 20,30. Do we have enough time between the flights? I will appreciate your answer very much, Brgds Anette.
That is a very difficult connection. You have to Go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US CUstoms, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate.
Thanks for your answer. Our travel agent insists that its an "allowed connection" both from the airport and AA. What happens if we miss our flight to Lhr? Thank you🙂
