We have our parents coming to PHL, which is the US port of Entry. They are travelling by Lufthansa airways which will land in Terminal A west. From there they have a connecting flight PHL-MPLS from terminal D. I have also booked my tickets in the same flight from PHL to MPLS which will take off from Terminal D. SO my question is, I can be in early and after I have finished my security Check at Terminal D, Can I go to the Gate in Terminal A west in which my parents will arrive and wait so that I can guide them from there through to Terminal D? (My parents first time to US so I want to be there to help them through immigration and customs) I want to know is there a way so that someone go from terminals B,C, or D to Terminal A West (internaltional arrival) post security check without having to go through multiple security checks? Are all the terminals A,B,C,D,E interconnected?
Also, another way is I can get through Terminal A west, finish my security check there an wait and after that proceed to Terminal D along with my parents? Is it feasible to get through any security check at one terminal and proceed to another terminal?. I could do online checkin for my flight so that it would OK even if the my travelling flight ticketing counter is not in terminal A west.
Please suggest.Edited: 2:51 am, July 01, 2013
