My girlfriend with a Belorussian passport (no US Visa) only European visa needs to know if its possible to fly to ATL and have no issues on her way to Punta Cana.
No, she absolutely needs to get a US Transit Visa or she won't be allowed to board her flight to Atlanta.
Our delta flight Austin to Atlanta has been rescheduled to leave 15 mins later, meaning we only have 19 mins at Atlanta before boarding starts on our onward flight to London.... is this enough time to get from the domestic to international terminals at Atlanta?
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 and board your flight.
my husband and I are going to Dublin in about 20 days, we are leaving from ATL connecting in BOS and then onto DUB; which terminal will we be flying out of?

on our way back to the united states are we able to do the preclearance in Dublin, or is that only for non residents (tourists)?
Since your first flight is domestic you go to the domestic terminal.

Everyone goes through Preclearance in Ireland on flights from Dublin and Shannon to the US, regardless of their citizenship or residency.
what terminal in Atlanta is used for Jet blue flights
JetBlue check in desks are on the North side of the Domestic terminal. Their departure gates are in Concourse D.
Hi, I will have a flight from AMS to ATL and the ATL to CUN (cancun) with Delta. I think I need to claim my baggage and drop it off again in the layover. I have 1h. 25 mins of layover. Is it enough time for doing customs? It would be better if i just take a Hand luggage with me?
If I am not wrong, I will have to do all in the same concourse.

Thanks
That is not realistically enough time as you do have to do all of that. With no checked bags it would be easier but still very difficult.
So, 1 hour and 25 mins is not enough? ... Because initially was 2 hours but the airline just delayed the flight half an hour.
yes, 1 hr 25 minutes is less than the minimum International to International connection time at ATL. Call Delta or whoever you booked your ticket through to get it changed.
I am flying on Delta. I arrive at Gate A33 and depart from Gate B2. Is a 45 minute layover enough time to get to gate B2?
Yes, that is enough time. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.
I am traveling from HSV to ATL on DL which is a domestic flight, but have another flight out of terminal F at ATL via QR. I have separate tickets and I understand DL does not have interlining agreement with QR, so I have to transfer checked luggage myself. What is the easiest way to transfer from domestic to international terminal with heavy luggage. Thanks a lot for your help.
You will have to go to the domestic S terminal, claim your bags, then take a shuttle bus to the International Terminal with your bags, re-check them with Qatar Airways, then go through security and to your departure gate.
Flying from Newark to Atlanta, Atlanta to Tallahassee... is 45 minute layover enough?
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.
We are arriving at gate b22 on Southwest and leaving on Southwest at gate c16; is 45 min enough time to get from gate to gate?
Southwest doesn't use Concourse B. All Southwest gates in Atlanta are on Concourse C. Perhaps B22 is the departure gate for your first flight. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.
IN TRANSFERRING FROM ARR FLT FROM FCO TO DEP FLT TO SAT WILL I HAVE TO CLAIM BAGGAGE AND RECHECK ?
Yes, you have to 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.
