I am flying into Atlanta with 2 small children on a southwest flight. I will be catching a completely separate Lufthansa flight out of the country. My question is can I stay within airport security and get my Lufthansa tickets and get to international terminal or will I have to exist and go back threw. I will not be checking bags with southwest.
With no checked bags you can go straight to the Lufthansa gate on the Plane Train and have your boarding passes issued there if you can't have them issued online.
I am coming from St. Thomas with about a 1 and 1/2 hour layover. I go through customs here before departure but want to make sure I can go straight to my next gate to Detroit without having to recheck everything again
There is no Customs when traveling between the US Virgin Islands and the Mainland US. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Atlanta.
Arrive in ATL 1010, depart 1056 to the DR. The ticket says International Terminal, Terminal B. Confusing verbiage... (1) Enough time? (2) What's up with the "Terminal B," thing? TIA.
You're probably looking at the arrival terminal in DR. All you have to do in Atlanta if both flights are on Delta, is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse, which will likely be E. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Thanks! I noticed what I was looking at right after I posted. Will I need to do anything with my checked bags, or no? Both flights are Delta.
You don't have to do anything with your bags in Atlanta on your way to DR.
I have a 6 hr layover in ATL between a domestic and international flight. If I leave security can I go back they at the domestic terminal so I can take the airport train or do I have to take the shuttle and go thru security in the international terminal?
If you have your boarding pass you can use it to go through security in the domestic terminal and then take the Train to E or F where you depart.
Will be arriving from PDX at terminal S, connecting to terminal S 2. Have less than 1 hr. Are those gates near each other?
You won't know your exact gates until the day of your flight and in fact won't even go to the domestic terminal itself. You will just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects every concourse inside security. An hour is enough time.
Hi, my parents are arriving in Atlanta from Sao Paulo at 5:49 and departing to Toronto at 7:31. I know they have to do US immigration and customs but will they have to claim and re-check baggage as well? In case they don't have to pick-up baggage they do not need to go through security again?
They should not have to claim their bags. They will still have to go through security to access their departure gate after clearing customs.
