  • 1hr30 INT to DOM Transit
    Feb 27, 2017
    HI there, I was due to have a 2hr30 connection (LHR - ATL- CHS) but Delta have schedule changed my domestic let (ATL - CHS) and now it's 1.30 exactly. IS this enough time to clear immigration & drop bags? Flight from Heathrow lands at 3.30pm - is this a busy time of the day? Any feedback welcome!

    Iam flying on delta from Fort Lauderdale to Atlanta then onto Manchester with virgin,what happens to my bags do have to recheck them or are they automatically transferred and I only have a stop over of 1 hour 22 min is this enough time


    You don't have to do anything with your bags in Atlanta on the way to Manchester. All you have to do is take the Plane Train to concourse E or F where you depart and board your flight to Manchester. You have enough time.


  • Connection from international to domestic flight

    I am returning from Ecuador and continuing on to Detroit, all on Delta. As I understand it, I collect luggage in Atlanta, go through US customs, recheck luggage, then go out to concourses to find my gate. Correct? And is 3 hour layover enough time usually? Thanks.


    Yes, that is correct. You have enough time.


  • Connection to Cancun Mexico and baggage
    Feb 25, 2017
    I'm flying from Nashville TN with a short time for plane change from American Airlines to Delta. Will my bags get automatically sent on to my destination or do I have to claim them and recheck with Delta? I'm headed to Cancun Mexico. Thanks


    You will have to claim them in the Domestic Terminal, take the shuttle to the International Terminal, re-check them with Delta and go through security. If you have a "short time" this will be impossible. Also, American doesn't fly nonstop from Nashville to Atlanta.

    We are flying from Paris to Liberia via Atlanta. Is 2h29 enough to get on our second flight? I am a Russian citizen (with active USA touristic visa), are there 2 different queues on US immigration control depending on travelers origin just like it is in Chicago? Thanks


    Yes, there are two different lines. Yes, that should be enough time if the flight from Paris is on-time.

    Arriving on Delta from Toronto with 37 minutes to connect to Delta flight to Savannah. Is that doable?


    It's possible as you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto, but it leaves no time to spare if there are any delays.

    As a polish citizen, do I have to apply for a visa in advance?


    Yes, you do.


  • Layover flying to Columbia SC
    Feb 23, 2017
    Hi I am thinking of flying From Sarasota to Atlanta with a 41 minute layover to Columbia SC on Delta. I am wondering if I will have sufficient time to make the second flight. Any knowledge would be greatly appreciated!


    It's enough time but leaves absolutely no time to spare if the flight from Sarasota arrives late.


  • Quito --> Atlanta --New Orleans
    Feb 22, 2017
    My Delta flight from Quito Ecuador is due into ATL at 5:46 am. My Delta flight to New Orleans is due out at 7:50 am will I have enough time to do all the checks, re-check one piece of luggage and make the connecting flight on time?


    Yes, that is enough time.


    Thank you. After an overnight flight, I want the connection to go as smoothly as possible. Appreciate your reassurance.


  • Punta Cana to Atlanta to Columbus
    Feb 22, 2017
    We are flying Southwest, with a 3hr 20min layover in Atlanta before our flight to Columbus departs. Will we have enough time to go through customs, re-check our bags, go through security and make it to our connecting flight on time?


    Yes, that is enough time.


  • Johannesburg to ATL to Nashville with Global Entry
    Feb 21, 2017
    We have a 1 hr 50 min layover in Atlanta coming in from Johannesburg and going on to Nashville. We have Global Entry and only carry-on bags. Do we have enough time to make our connection to Nashville?


    Yes, that should be enough time if the flight from Johannesburg is on-time.


  • Manchester to Jackson Hole

    I'm flying in from Manchester UK (virgin) and traveling on to Jackson WY with Delta we have 1:45mins is thus enough time?. Also the only checked baggage is oversize (snowboard bags). What do we have to with these?


    You will arrive in Concourse E or F, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and take the Plane Train to your departure concourse. Oversize bags will just be on a different baggage claim but are otherwise treated the same. You have barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Concerned about customs and connecting flight--help!!
    Feb 19, 2017
    Last year we flew from the Cayman Islands to Detroit via ATL. We had a rough time getting through security after customs and immigration and made our flight with 10 seconds to spare. This year we booked the same flight, and were assured that wasn't the norm. However my parents came through ATL from Barbados tonight and were in customs/immigration/security for 2.5 HOURS. We will have two small kids along, and waiting that long will be beyond miserable with them, not to mention we only have 1 hour and 45 minutes to make our flight to Detroit. Everything is booked, or I would just change our flight right now. Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks in advance!


    There's not much you can do, just hope for the best.


  • Amsterdam to Nassau transfer at ATL
    Feb 18, 2017
    What can one expect at ATL when flying from Amsterdam to Nassau on a through ticket? Do you have to go through immigration and/or reclaim bags etc.


    Yes, you will arrive in Concourse E or F, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate.


  • Enough Time + Best Way to Get to Other Gate
    Feb 18, 2017
    My daughter is flying into ATL from ORD arriving around 10:15 into gate E26. She then is catching a flight from gate F4 departing at 11 am (international). What's the best way to get to the other gate? The maps aren't really clear. Will she have to go through security again to get to Terminal F? We know it's a tight connection but she'll be checking her luggage in ORD. TIA!


    She won't have to go through security again. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. She has enough time if the first flight is on-time.


    So the best way to get from E to F is the plane train? Not to walk? This is first time traveling by herself and we've never been to the ATL airport so we're just trying to cover all of the bases. Thanks.


    You can do either. It doesn't make much difference.
