  • Flight to Puerto Vallarta, connecting through ATL
    Mar 8, 2016
    Will I have to pay a luggage fee for my flight Tallahassee to ATL, if I am connecting to an international flight to PV?


    Flights to Mexico do not include a free checked bag for economy class passengers. You will have to pay the checked bag fee whether you are connecting to Puerto Vallarta or not.

    I am travelling to India can I use two baggages that have combined weight of 20 kgs? Or only one baggage is allowed to be carried


    You are allowed only one bag free. The second bag is $75 when traveling on Delta from the US to India.

    HI. I have flight from Belgrade->Dusseldorf->Atlanta->Tampa. I need to make connection in Atlanta from terminal I to terminal S. I can not find this terminals on map. This connection is made by "Air France Operated by Delta Air Lines". This is my first time traveling and I am alone. :( What would be procedure of this connection.


    Also my connection time is 1hr 58min.


    You don't actually have to change terminals. You will arrive in concourse E or F. Follow the signs for connecting passengers. You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and take the plane train to your departure concourse and walk to your departure gate.


    Thank you very mouch.

    What is the baggage claim contact no? Our flight was missed and no baggage with us. Need to buy cloths to survive for a day. Delta suggested to claim it with baggage claim department. I want to make sure before i make purchase.


    You need to go to the Delta baggage office or call Delta baggage services.

    hi , my spouse and kid they missed the flight yesterday (05-Nov-15) from London LHR to ATL in British Airways. Now they started the same by today (06-Nov-2015) from LHR to ATL thru British Airways. please let us know how to claim the bag and from where I need to claim the bag??


    It will likely be in the British Airways bag office. The British Airways agents greeting the flight can help them locate it.

    You need to contact the baggage hotline of your airline.

    I'm flying from Atlanta to D.C. And then onto London. Everything is on the same ticket, so do I check-in my luggage at the international side of ATL, or do we fly out of the domestic side??


    Domestic side.


  • Sav-ATL-MBJ recheck bags in atl?
    Nov 20, 2014
    Flying from Sav to ATL DL844. and ATL-MBJ DL317. Do we have to do anything with our bags once we get to atlanta? I have seen different answers on here regarding re checking bags during a layover.


    No you do not have to do anything with your bags on the way to Jamaica. Just take the plane train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse .

    I am flying in from minneapolis on delta heading to St lucia. Will I have to go through security check points or do anything with my checked bags? I only have 45min to make the connection.


    No you only have to go from your arrival gate to your departure concourse via the plane train.


  • From ATL-CDG-LUX
    Sep 10, 2014
    Hello, we are American's departing from ATL through CDG to LUX. Will we claim and re-check our luggage at Customs in CDG? Also, we have a layover time of 1:45, is this enough time? Thank you.


  • location of bag wrapping machines
    Sep 5, 2014
    Could you plz tell me exactly where those bag wrapping services are located in the domestic terminal in ATL? Near where should I be looking if flying ATL - IAD on Delta. Thanks!!


    Baggage wrapping services are usually in the ticketing area, or close to the security checkpoint - just ask an attendant. Note that Delta uses the South Terminal for ticketing & check-in (enter by doors S1-S4) and all Concourses/ gates T and A - D. Your ticket & the overhead screens inside the terminal will indicate which gate your flight will depart from.


    I highly doubt there is bag wrapping in the domestic terminal, nor do you need bag wrapping on a domestic flight.


    I am continuing on to an international flight so I need the wrapping as one of my bags may not make it in one pc.


    Got to the airport & was informed that the wrap service area had been replaced by IHOP. The porter(?) was kind enough to wrap bag with tape at counter. Easy $10 for her! :) :)
