    My cousin was flying through U.S airway we went to see an attendant when the check in machine was giving us problems & the woman was so rude when all we wanted was some help. Hate this airport.

    Term A is the best bet as it's got the newest facilities.

    Hell on earth, this place is disgusting and massively overpriced. If you get stranded here with US Airways fight your corner or the will walk all over you.

    To get downtown, follow the signs towards SEPTA train station. You'll find the station in front of the exit. Tickets can be purchased on board by telling your final destination once seated.

    The gates are too small and poorly laid out and make the boarding process the worst I've experienced in the U.S., which is really an astonishing accomplishment.

    If you're in terminal C and are looking for vegetarian/vegan options, consider Au Bon Pain, Sky Asian bistro, and Burrito Elito

    If your incoming flight is delayed, you may get an extra workout in when trying to get to your connecting flight on time.

    Take the train into town. Traffic is so unpredictable. No machines on the platform. You need cash to buy a ticket on the train.

    There's a good cellphone lot there. You don't need to park on the shoulder of the road.

    Layover in PHL? Instead of sitting find a Fitness zone and do some spinning on a stationary bike. Its good for you.

    Good selection of food. Place is very dated. Every electrical outlet in the place needs to be replaced. Crazy overheating and cooling issues

    A wonderful one-stop shop for every appetite. Wander down the aisles, famous for Philly cheesesteaks, Amish food, lobster rolls, sushi, barbecue, & every cuisine you could imagine.

    From tall tales to wide bodies, PHL is the airport that always has you leaving with a story to share just like the tall tales and wide bodies of aircraft, crew, and passengers alike

    They have these little private rooms where you can sleep, watch TV or work. Which is nice cause there is a good chance you will be delayed. Slow ground crew & in bad weather they route NYC over it.

    Use the security line at terminal B if you are flying out of terminal C. Even if it looks long it moves fast because they have more screeners.

    DO NOT use economy parking here if you want to get from or to your car in a reasonable amount of time. The 10 minute round is just a "guideline." Add extra time to your plans.

    Decent food/drink options while waiting on a connecting flight. Allow plenty of walking time between A, B, C and D gates, it's a longer walk than you may think.
