I have a direct flight on Delta to Toronto ON. Will I need to check in at the international concourse or does it matter?
Yes, you need to go to the International Terminal if you have to check a bag or check-in at a counter.
I will be arriving Atlanta at 5:10pm and catching international flight at 6:17pm on same airline. Enough time to make conntection?
Yes, all you have to do if both flights are on Delta is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to Concourse E or F where you depart.
Hello. I'm going to flight with Delta next week, from Cleveland to New York City . I only have 40 minutes to go from B21 gate to T7. Is this time enough? I'm worried about it, don't wanna miss the flight, coud you help me please?
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.
I need to go from gate A24 to B20 how long will this take to walk (delta airlines)
You take the Plane Train. It should take about 10 minutes.
Hi there, Could you please tell me whether I am able to go through security from a Delta domestic Concourse to an International Concourse. The thing is I'll be guiding my sister who is traveling to Bogota, Colombia, and I'm just going to ATL as a pass rider on Delta. Do I need a boarding pass for the international flight so I can go with her to her flight? Thank you for your time.
You will need a boarding pass (or a DM card) for any flight leaving Atlanta that day. If you just arrive in ATL, you can go to an international gate inside security on the Plane Train.
Family of 6 traveling from STL to Lagos with Delta .
I was thinking of booking the domestic leg of the trip (STL to ATL)separately on the same airline (and paying with miles)
Is this a good idea ? How much time should I leave for connections?
The difference in cost is close to 5K which I find very surprising.
If you book two separate reservations I would leave at least 2 hours between flights, preferably a bit more if you want to play it safe.
We are flying from DFW to ATL, then from ATL to CDG in January. I was just notified that our connection time in Atlanta has been shortened to 55 minutes. One member of our party of three is handicapped and we have requested gate to gate assistance for her. Is this enough time to make the connection? These flights are on the same ticket with Delta.
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Thank you, ZAP.
Hello,

My itinerary says i will be arriving in ATL at B33 South and leaving from C34 South. Any advice on how to get to the other gate once I land? Thank you!
Just take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse.
Arriving at Atlanta from Manchester flying with Virgin then change to a domestic flight with delta .Will 2 hrs layover be enough to make our connection .
Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Arriving in Atlanta on domestic Delta flight then traveling to Germany via Lufthansa on a separate ticket. How do I get from domestic baggage claim to international checkin? Thanks.
You have to take a shuttle bus outside security.
