Hi ! I booked with DELTA for a trip from Montreal to Costa Rica with a 58min layover in ATL.... I am beginning to panic... this is his 1st flight on his own. Will he have to get his luggage in Atlanta and check it again? Will he have to go through security? It doesn't make sens... it can't be done in 58 min especially considering flights are often delayed..... I'm really worried...

He will go through US Immigration and customs in Montreal. All he has to do on the way to Costa Rica in Atlanta is go from his arrival gate to his departure gate.
What is the quickest way to get to an international Delta flight coming on on Concourse E to a domestic Southwest flight leaving on Concourse C? We can't carry all of our bags and also have a disabled child in a wheelchair.
Sorry, mistake. International flight is coming into ATL, domestic flight is departing.

You will have to arrive, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, take the shuttle bus to the Domestic terminal, re-check your bags with Southwest, and go through security. You need at least 3 hours, maybe more.
My daughters and I have a Delta flight from Germany arriving in ATL on Tuesday night and connecting onto Washington DC (also a Delta flight). I am so confused reading all this. Will my daughters and I have to pick up our luggage and go through customs? We have 2 hours, which I thought was enough time, but now reading some of these posts I am not sure!

Yes, you will have to 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. 2 hours is just enough time.

Are you coming from Mexico City? If so yes, your bags should automatically transferred but you will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security. you should have enough time.
