KPHL

There are 5 international carriers that fly into PHL. Air Canada Express, British Airway’s, Lufthansa CityLine, and Qatar Airways. The rest of international flights are by American Airlines. Air Canada Express flights are around the clock, I believe there is a flight for every part of the day. So I think I’m able to say that the arrival international flights excluding Qatar would be 3-4 pm. Qatar’s flight arrives roughly between 7:50 to 8:10. And it’s very hard to spot the a359 because I leave school around the time it arrives😒.

Departures

Departures aren’t as simple as you would think either. American intl. departures are from 8-11 am. And the other carrier’s departures are 5-6pm. excluding Qatar. Qatar’s a359 departs with the American flights. So you can take this knowledge to figure out what you think the intl. departures are😂

at FAOR

Arrivals from Asia 02:00 - 04:00Z
Arrivals from Europe 04:00 - 06:00Z
Arrivals from the Americas are split throughout the day
Departures to Asia around 13:00Z
Departures to Europe and the Americas 16:00 - 20:00Z. If you find yourself in a domestic inbound plane at this time, chances are high you will make a 360 on approach. International flights get first priority.
