I am flying from Hawaii to Chicago on American Airlines with a change of planes in PHX and time between flights of 1 hour and 6 minutes. Assuming on-time arrival in PHX is that enough to connect? Are AA flights from Hawaii and to rest of USA usually in the same concourse or easy walk as I have a mobility impairment.
Flying in from SNA with a 59 minute connection. America Airlines-is that doable?
That connection is fine in PHX with America Airlines. If your inbound plane is late, the would have to wait for the next flight.
Hello, flying from Oakland-to-Phoenix-to-Cancun on 5/30. All on American Airlines.
My flight is scheduled to arrive in Phoenix at 7:55AM (Gate A, terminal 4). My flight to Cancun is scheduled to depart at 8:55AM (Gate B, terminal 4).
Will I have time to get through customs? Do I have to go through another security check-point in Phoenix at Gate B?
Nervous I won't make it. Thanks, John
-When departing the US, you do not need to go through Customs and will be fine Only when Returning to the US do you go through Customs.
-When connecting on American in Phoenix Sky Harbor, you do not need to clear security again. Gates A & B are both inside the same Terminal 4 Security.
-When returning to the US, you will need to go through Customs and Security. At Phoenix, Customs has always been very fast (unless you arrive around 6p - the the British Airways 747 arrives).
ZAP is incorrect. I just flew through PHX. American Airlines flight landed at A gate in terminal 4 and I had to get to B gate in Terminal 4 for my departing American Airlines flight. Security is specific to your gate. If you change gates you have to go through security again. Real pain and I am now avoiding flights through PHX.

I'm flying through American Airways from Mexico to PHX and Connection to BOI, my lay over time is 1hr and 40mins will i have enough time to clear customs to make my connection flight? Please help
I will be traveling with 2 young kids, trying to book a flight from Medford, OR to Miami, FL, it has a layover of 33 minutes in PHX, I wonder if is enough time, (if the first plane is on time of course), to be changing planes with 2 kids,
Thanks a lot
It's possible but it leaves absolutely no time to spare.
Hi - I want to book Vancouver to Mazatland on AA - there is a 40 min layover in Pheonix - is that enough time to get from one flight to the next?
Yes, that is enough time as you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. However, it leaves no time to spare.
I will be flying on AA to PHX from ABQ and landing at 19:22 on 5/28. I leave for Frankfurt at 20:55 on Condor.Will this be enough time to go through security?
Is it one reservation or two separate reservations? Do you have checked bags?
Hi guys,


I have a flight from LAX arriving to Phoenix (PHX) at 9:09 PM (planned) with American Airlines. Then my flight, still with American Airlines, to Detroit is at 9:45 PM. Which means and assuming that the first flight is on time I have around 30 min of layover.

Do you think guys this is enough, the domestic flights of AA are all in the Terminal 4?

Thank you ;)
That's enough time if the first flight is on-time. Yes, all AA flights are in Terminal 4.
I am flying from ewr to Page airport and have a 1 hour layover. Is that enough time to make my connection?
Are your flights on one reservation or two separate reservations? What airline are you flying from Newark?
I am travelling from SNA to PHX by Southwest Airlines and I have just 30 mins to switch to the next flight from PHX to PIT by Southwest Airlines. Is 30 mins enough to catch my 2nd flight and will there be a security check?
That's enough time if the first flight is on-time. There is no security check.
