Will i be able to get to my international flight in time using delta all the way through
I don't know. You didn't post how much time you have.
Hi everyone. I'm arriving in gate B10 and departing from concourse F. Both Delta flights. I only have a 40 mins. layover, which is a 'legal connection' according to Delta. I know it's tight but do you think I can realistically make my connection? Thanks in advance.
Yes, it's possible if the first flight is on-time but leaves no time to spare.
Will be arriving from costa Rica with same day transfer to Rome. Both are Delta flights.

1. I assume bags must go through customs, then be re-checked in. correct?

2. I assume one go through a security check again. Correct?
You are correct with both of your suspicions.
I fly into Atlanta on Southwest and connect to a Delta flight. Will I need to go through security screening?
If you have checked bags you will have to claim them, re-check them with Delta, and go through security. if you don't have checked bags and you check in for your Delta flight online, then you don't have to go through security.
We're flying from Houston to Grand Cayman via Delta. The transit time is only 1 hr. I am really concerned that we may not be have enough time from plane landing to getting to the next departure gate to Cayman. I am not sure which concourse we will land and for international flight. Are we okay with time to catch next flight?
All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to E or F where you depart. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
How long does it take to get from the international terminal to delta via shuttle service?
There is no such thing as a "Delta terminal" Where are you flying from and to and what airline are you flying into Atlanta on? Are both flights on the same reservation or two separate reservations?
My family of 4 (two young kiddos) will be departing GSP on Delta and arriving at ATL 50 minutes before our connecting flight to MAN on Virgin Atlantic. We made the (possibly false) assumption that they wouldn't offer this on the same ticket if it wasn't possible, but we're growing concerned. Do we need to undergo a new TSA screening at ATL? Will we need to check in again due to it not being the same company (though listed as partners)? Thank you for your assistance.
All you have to do is go from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse via the Plane Train. There is no special security you have to go through in Atlanta. You have enough time.
1st leg: JAX to ATL
2nd leg: ATL to CUN
Will I need to go through security at ATL before heading to my departure gate for 2nd leg of trip? I will have both boarding passes.

Thank you for responding ZAP!
Im thinking of reserving flights to MTY Mexico with Delta but the 2hr and 38m time between connecting flights is worrying me, we will go through US preclearance in Dublin but I will still have to collect my bag and go through customs again in ATL (I think, though Dublin to ATL and ATL to MTY are both operated by Delta so maybe they will be transferred for me).

Does anyone have any experience with this route? Or can you offer me any advice as to whether the 2.5 hour layover is sufficent for making my second flight?
You will not have to claim your bags in Atlanta on the way to Monterrey. 2.5 hours is plenty of time.
Cheers Zap, you are an absolute legend.
We have a 50 min. connection window, arriving on a Sunday morning. Will we be able to make our connection?
A is a concourse not a terminal. If both flights are on the same reservation then all you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse. You have enough time.
