    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.

    Don't miss your plane. That's my tip.

    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.

    I love Legal Seafood!! Surprised to find one at this airport though. Their seafood is really really good. Love the oysters.

    This airport was more like a greyhound bus terminal. It was overcrowded the bathrooms were disgusting pretty much every flight was delayed they changed my gate 2 times and never made an announcement

    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.

    Free WiFi, many stores/restaurants and near to the public transportation.

  • Gregory S.

    Why is such a small airport so spread out.

    Nice airport, free wifi, at the end of the terminals there are seating areas that are quiet

    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

    There is a ChickFilA here! Take the time to find it!

    Seems I often spend more time here than planned..... It's not a bad place. I'd just rather get home!!!

    Terminal D has Green Leafs for a custom salad and it's awesome! Plus DD is right next door.

    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.

    Look it's the emerald city Dorothy! O wait, are they flying monkeys and who is that flying in on her broom?

    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

    The walk from one gate to another was TOO long!! OMG!

  • Niki H.

    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.

    Pack light or they will make you

  • Liz M.

    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.

    Just starting to get better with's actually a pretty cool airport for shopping.

    Cam Byrd · January 19
  • Jacob R.

    Coherent design and pretty decent amenities. Still, give yourself plenty of time, some of the walks from gate to gate are really long.

    Jacob Rosenberg · January 15
  • Victor G.

    Convenient train service into the city every 30 minutes!

    Victor Gaxiola · January 14
  • Piper C.

    Surprisingly clean!

    Piper Chester · January 11
  • Christine C.

    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.

    Christine Connors · January 10
  • Sadik A.

    Before take off try Philly cheese stake.

  • Paddy

    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.

    Paddy · January 4
  • Chester C.

    Starbucks is only at terminal C!

    Not one of my favorite airports.....but not the worst.

    Ricky Sherrill · December 30, 2014
  • Kelsey S.

    This airport has great support for the disabled. :) You can get on a transport car for the disabled only at one terminal, ride it to the train, then pick up another car at the next terminal.

    Kelsey Schur · December 28, 2014
  • Nick M.

    My least favorite airport in the country. Not very welcoming and the curbside check-in folks will haggle you for tips.

    Nick Marques · December 27, 2014
  • Hayley B.

    Worst airport in the U.S. The staff is rude and wouldn't even let me wait for my parents in line at security. Definitely not the airport of "brotherly love".

    Hayley Bottona · December 21, 2014
  • John K.

    Terminal F is newly remodeled and looks amazing! Too bad I couldn't stay longer and check it all out. Wait, that sounds weird...
