    PHL is such an awful airport. Best tip: get TSA Pre and avoid human contact.

    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

    You don't have to cross the Delaware in a boat. Try Uber with $20 off your first ride with this link:

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

    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

    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.

  • 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

    Convenient train service into the city every 30 minutes!

  • 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.

    Before take off try Philly cheese stake.

    Travelling from Philadelphia to New Delhi, register yourself at & save your travelling expenses by carrying goods via!

    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.

    Starbucks is only at terminal C!

    Huge! Such a nice airport. Free wifi and lots of shopping if you want to

    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...

    John Kidde · December 19, 2014
  • Jeffrey S.

    This airport is old and out-dated. The strangest thing is there are strange buses that take you from one terminal to the other. It is also very confusing to pick the right bus to go to which terminal.

    Jeffrey Stanley · December 19, 2014
  • Carey R.

    Nice Airport if you get there at the right time.

    Carey Rutherford · December 17, 2014
  • Jonathan D.

    Beats flying into Newark if going to central NJ.

    Jonathan Down · December 17, 2014
  • Alex D.

    Not bad - grab a cheesesteak at Tony Luke's or Chickie's & Pete's.

    Alex Dobyan · December 15, 2014
  • Theresa I.

    Free wifi. Terminals in gate C are clean and easy to navigate.

    Theresa Irvine · December 10, 2014
  • Rachel💗Marie

    They need a smoking room asap

    Rachel💗Marie · December 10, 2014
  • Megan I.

    Meh. Not a fan of this airport. Gates change often, and traversing terminals can be annoying.

    Megan Irvine · December 8, 2014
  • Don D.

    I would definitely urge even people I do NOT like to fly thru ANY other airport! Philadelphia is the absolute WORST airport I've EVER been to! Do ANYTHING-DO NOT FLY HERE! Horrid airport! The Worst!

    Don Dibert · December 6, 2014
  • Don D.

    Stay away! Stay far far away! Avoid this airport at ALL COST! Unless, you like to hear your captain say. " OK Folks we're 27th in line and we oughtta have you in the air in, oh,... about an hour!
