    American connection through Philadelphia

    Anyone flow to Aruba on American with a layover in Philadelphia? Price and arrival time were good. I'm just wondering how stressed out I will be with an hour and 15 minute connection time?

    We have flown through Philly a number of times and make sure we have at least an hour layover to change terminals.

    Are you flying American both legs of the trip? If so they often wait if there is a delay since there are probably many others just like you on that fight.

    Yes, it would be American on both legs.

    Philly... ugh. You should be fine, I've never had an American flight out of Philly leave on time except in the early AM. That said, an hour 15 should be plenty of time.

    Philly is our airport. It is large but with an hour and 15 minute layover, you should be fine. I am guessing you would be aiming for the 8 something flight in the am since it is direct. That flight usually leaves on time unless we are waiting for passengers from another flight. It usually goes out of the end of A East, but not always. I'd say it is about a 15 minute walk between terminals for slow pokes like me. If you come in on a small plane you'll come in at F and there is a shuttle to A East. B and C terminals belong to American too.

    I've flown American on the way home only a few times, PHL to BDL. It is different each time, huge airport IMO. One time we had to go outside and take a bus to the next terminal, not sure why it was crazy. Other times we had enough time although it was over 1 hr . Our last experience was not fun the sign told us if we walked it would be 10 mins. (Don't belive this) it was my the year my husband had his surgery 3 months prior so could not walk fast, I was a wreck and after walking 25 mins. with no end in sight flagged down a shuttle guy. Good Luck if you decide, I'm sure some people have positive experiences I just try to avoid PHL now.
