PHL Connecting flight logistics

Our flight is scheduled to arrive at gate A22 at 6:39 AM. We have a connecting flight that leaves from F27 at 7:45 AM. We had been hoping to grab something for breakfast during our layover, but considering that it's barely an hour, not sure how realistic that will be.

What's the quickest way for us to get from A to F? Can we take the train w/o dealing with security? How long would it take to walk?

Thanks for any insight and tips you can provide us with!

You will not have time for breakfast. Your connecting flight will start to board at 7:15. If you need overhead storage you will not want to board late.

If your arriving flight is on time you should be able to catch your departing time. Be sure to double check your arrival and departure gates after you arrive at the airport. These gates change all of the time.

There is no reason for you to leave the secure area to reach your next flight & you do not want to do that because you do not have time to go through security again. I think it is a good distance between these two areas and I would plan on using the train

There is a shuttle bus which runs to Terminal F from Terminal A - it takes about 10 minutes. There are a number of kiosks where you could grab a coffee and sandwich in Terminal F but i wouldn't delay.

I would take a snack on board because although PHL is a very efficient airport you will have to hurry for the connecting flight.
