Connecting at Philadelphia airport

Jump to last reply

I have read in older threads that Immigration at PHL can sometimes be crowded and time-consuming.
As I will have to make a connection within 90-120 minutes (according to the arrival history of my inbound int'l flight) on a Saturday in 2 weeks, I guess there is somewhat of a chance that I could miss the connecting flight.

Even though I do fly quite a bit, I think I have a stupid question:
If I was too late after Immigration and Customs to make the connecting flight, what would be the usual procedure to take care of getting booked on the next one?
Are there dedicated US Airways transfer desks after Customs or would I go to a US Airways ticket counter or somewhere else?

I will have checked luggage, and will arrive int'l at Terminal A and connect to domestic Terminal B (US Airways to US Airways) and travel in Envoy/First - if that is of any matter.
