I'm thinking of taking a flight from Toronto YYZ to New Orleans MSY. There is a 50 minute layover in ATL (Delta for both flights). No checked bags, just carry-on. Is that usually enough time to switch planes?
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.
Hi, We land in Atlanta from Orlando at 1813 and have to make our connecting flight from Atlanta to Manchester at 1910 (57 mins layover). Is this enough time? I am told that the flight could not have been booked without a viable connection but it seems extremely tight! and does anyone know how close the terminals would be to eachother??
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart.
I will be coming from Mexico into Atlanta to connect to Paris. My layover connection is now 2 hrs due to reschedules; will this be enough time to go thru immigration and customs?
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I will be flying Delta from Manchester UK to Salt Lake via Atlanta. I have a 1hr 50min layover. Is this enough time to get bags and clear immigration?
Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I have a layover from Noon to 3:00. Can you suggest a place where I can meet a friend who lives in Atlanta?
There's a food court outside security in the domestic terminal. It's not really very big and you'll have to leave to go back through security at like 1:45.
Thx much. Do you have any suggestions as to good food there?
Have a 56 minute layover in May, flying Detla, MLI to ATL, ATL to ANU. Will have checked bags, I know we can make the connection as long as our flight is not delayed by much, but will our checked bags make it?
Yes, that should be enough time for you and your bags. All you and your bags have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
My son is flying from Boston to Atlanta and then to Buenos Aires with only a 45 minute layover. So going domestic to international. Worried now that not enough time. Is international terminal easy to access quickly so can jump off plan, and run to the train and make it? Or should we look at rebooking...Help, he leaves soon...
That is doable but leaves no time to spare if there is a delay.
So finally did you have you flight ??
Thank you
I will need to go through customs and immigrations, and i'm not sure if this is enough time. I am not a us citizen, please tell me if this is enough time.
Yes, that should be enough time.
I have flight to LHR from Ord Chicago in American Airlines via ATLANTA with 70 minutes layover before I connect Britesh Airways to London, is 70 minute enough time with 2 kids . Thanks in advance for your help
Yes, that is enough time. You just have to take the plane train from concourse T where you arrive to Concourse F where you depart and board your flight if all flights are on the same reservation.
Flying from Detroit to Huntsville (HSV) through Atlanta. My layover in Atlanta has me landing at 6:40 from Detroit and departing at 7:25 for Huntsville. How early is gate information usually available?
You won't know your exact gates until the day of your trip. Your connection is doable.
