Best Way To PHL Airport To Catch A 6am Flight?

Fri Dec 02, 2011 4:30 pm

Hello everyone,

Winter Break begins soon and I am scheduled to depart midweek from PHL-ORD on the 6am United Airlines flight. I reviewed the SEPTA Airport Line schedule and the first train arrives at the Terminal D station at 4:52am. I will check-in online and I am not planning on checking any bags. Will I have enough time to make the flight if I choose to take the Airport Line train and arrive at 4:52am?

Do you know which terminals have longer wait times at the TSA security lines?

I know for a fact B and C are hectic in the morning with all the early morning US departures. You will be flying out of D which houses AC and DL along with UA, so with DL and UAL having quite a bit of activity in the early morning security might be busy.
