I notice I have 2 hrs. and 5 minutes to connect from a flight from Zurich to one to TPA through Philly. Is this enough time for customs and luggage? global entry helpful?
Yes, that should be enough time. Yes, Global Entry is helpful.
I have 35 minutes between flights if all goes according to schedule. Can I walk between gate C26 andB1?
Yes, that's possible.
How do I get from terminal F to Terminal A quickly
There's a shuttle bus that runs inside security. That's your best bet.
I have 44 minutes to get from flight arriving in Terminal B to a connecting flight in Terminal F. Do I have to take a shuttle between the two or can I walk? How long will the connection take? This was shown on the website as a legal connection but it seems too short to me.
You can walk. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi there, I will be arriving to terminal A at 1240am, then departing terminal F at 855am. Will I be able to go directly to terminal F upon arrival and wait there for morning or would you suggest something else?
Thank you.
Is it one reservation or two separate reservations? Where are you flying into PHL from? There aren't many amenities in Terminal F so I'd advise against waiting there.
It's one reservation, flying in from Chicago then heading to Toronto. Where would you recommend waiting? I considered getting a hotel but for the few hours I'd actually be there the cost isn't really worth it
Probably the Terminal A lobby or baggage claim will be the best spot.
Ok, Thanks!
I have a 50 minute layover. What is the quickest way to get from terminal F to terminal C american airlines
You can walk or take the shuttle. Either way you should have enough time.
Hi, I've just booked a holiday in Florida for Aug 18. The return flight comes into PHL from Orlando international we have 55 minutes to get to our connection flight to LHR. Is that enough time.
Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do in Philadelphia is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Also note that the exact schedule will probably change between now and August.
Thanks for that.
Hi! I will have a long layover @Philadelphia (8:50h), and think of going to the see the city. Is this possible? Will I have to collect my baggage, or will it be checked through? I will arrive from New Orleans and then fly to Munich. Thanks!
You won't have to claim your bags if both flights are on the same reservation, so yes, you can leave the airport and go sightsee and then get back to the airport 2 hours before your flight to Munich.
Arriving B14 and need to get to F1. What is fastest way to do this? Have 1 hour between flights
I would walk. You should have enough time.
Thanks for the info. If I'm walking from B14 to F1, is there a walkway
Yes, all gates are connected by walkways inside security.
I am traveling from BWI to Philadelphia in AA and catching another flight to Doha . I have about 2and half hour of transit time to go to gate A from F . Will it be enough time and how to make it .
If both flights are on the same reservation you have plenty of time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You can walk or take a shuttle.
