I have 45 minutes in PHL arriving gate F23 and departing from A3. Am a little worried. Does the train run often?
There is no train. You take a bus or walk/run. You can make it if the first flight is on-time.
Oh, no train, okay. So do the buses run often?
Yes, they run almost constantly.
I have a short connection of 1 hour between gate B15 (arrive from Boston) to gate A20 (depart to MAN), is that enough time ?
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Philadelphia on your way to Manchester is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
arriving PHL on American Airlines (I assume Terminal A) at 7:35 am; have to get to Terminal F for departure time 8:30 am to Newburgh, NY. Is it possible to walk it or would I have to take a shuttle?
You can walk or take the shuttle, it's really up to what you're physically up for. You should have enough time.
Fun back story, but very long so I’ll just ask my question :) Going to be flying in to Terminal A from MAN in April, me, the wife and two disabled kids. Seems to me that we may be best off going through immigration, customs, re-check our bags then go right back in through security at terminal A to grab the shuttle to get to F. Both kid’s will be in wheelchairs. Confirmation or better ideas?
Yes, that's probably the best method.
Ariiving from PWM in Term F Gate F27 with less than an hr time to go to Term C Gate C30. How do I maneuver haven't been there? Thank
You can either walk or take the shuttle bus. They both take about the same amount of time. You should have enough time if everything goes smoothly.
My flight from Myrtle Beach SC arrives at 12:40/Terminal B gate #1 and I need to get to Terminal F gate #25 boarding starts at 12:50 and departs at 1:20. What would be the best route for me to ensure I get the my flight before it departs?
You can walk all the way to F or walk to C and take the shuttle to F. If you're able, I would just walk the whole way.
My flight arrives at terminal A. I have to clear immigration after that. My next flight is from terminal F. I have 1 hour 30 minutes between the two flights. How do i best go about the transfer keeping the short time in mind ?
The process is very clear. You go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and either walk or take the shuttle to Terminal F. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am returning on sat Jan 13 from jamaica to buffalo ny and have a 1 hr 45 minute layover in philadelphia. Will this be enough time to get through customs and make my connecting flight to buffalo? The resort booked everything through american airlines and I'm concerned about making the connecting flight in time.
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Gate B8 to gate F24, how do I get there
You can walk or take the shuttle bus from C.
Hi,
I am scheduled to arrive at PHL at 4:45 PM from CUN (AA1262) and connect to a flight departing at 6:30 PM to CDG (AA754). Is there enough time to make this connection? Travel date is March 7 and i have a french passport.
Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I'm flying from Manchester, England to LAX through philadelphia. I have a 2 hour layover in Philadelphia do I have enough time to get to my next flight?
Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
