International Connection through Philadelphia

Hello I have a flight booked to Rome from Phoenix through Philadelphia on US Airways. I have a little over 90 minutes between connections. I have flown in and out of Philly but never connected. I am know thinking I do not have enough time. Should I pay the $250 change fee (flying on miles) or press my luck??

90 minutes for a domestic-to-international connection is no problem. It is no different from domestic-to-domestic. On the way back, it is tighter, but if you miss your connection, USAirways will just put you on their next flight back to PHX.

What time of day is the layover? PHL is fairly small and easy to navigate. The only potential problem would be delays...but generally when PHL has delays in, they have delays out.

Unfortnately I land at 4:40 in the afternoon. I do not think I have to go through security again. Is that correct? I recall the International Terminal being quite a walk but all within the same terminal.

Based on flights from yesterday and today, flight arriving from PHX usually uses one of the C gates, while the flight to FCO departs from A25 or 26 at the far end of Concourse A-West. The gates can be up to 0.75mi apart, but still, it should be plenty of time. No security check.
