  • Enough time?
    Aug 3, 2016

    Hi. Tuesday, Ausgust 16, I fly from Baltimore to Bloomington, IL. Depart BWI @ 1:45 with arrival in Atlanta at 3:33. (40 minute layover) before departing at 4:13 for BMI. Is that enough time? On the way home we leave Bloomington at 5:48 and land in Atlanta at 8:30PM before departing for Baltimore at 9:30PM. The flights to and from Bloomington are regional jets. Will I be able to make both of these connections?

     

    It's enough time if everything goes perfectly. Obviously leaves no time to spare if the flight from BWI is delayed. The return connection is a bit more comfortable.

     

    actually you will miss you flight and you will have to rebook with continental air. cancel this and fly America west

     

    POC, stop trolling. ANDY, please ignore POC.

     

  • 1hr 22min is enough for AA - DL domestic with checked bags?

    Arriving from DFW on AA at 09:53 pm Thursday and will Departing to MCO on DL at 11:15 pm. Separate tickets with checked bags. I have Skyteam Elite Plus tier but expecting plenty of people with Gold Medallion or higher at ATL.

     

    In a normal situation, that would probably not be enough time. However, since your flights are so late at night, lines will not be as long. You should be able to make your flight, but with very little space for your American flight to be delayed. If possible, try not to check bags.

     

    Yeah, I would really recommend trying to do this without checked bags if you can.

     

    If the bags are slightly too big to carry on, you could bring them through security and have the airline gate check them. Although you will still have to pay, you will be able to pick up your bags at the ramp in Atlanta rather than be forced to wait at baggage claim.

     

    That's not true. Gate checked bags on mainline flights go to the baggage claim.

    I fly from Nassau to LAx , WITH 52 MINS. LAYOVER IN ATL do I have enought time to get to my next fly to LAX?

     

    Yes, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Nassau. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

    We are flying DL 073 from Amsterdam to Atlanta with an arrival time of 2:33 PM. Our next flight is to Orlando (DL 2586) , terminal S,departing at 3:55. Time between flights is 1:32. Will we have enough time to clear customs and be at the gate on time for our next flight? Delta and the travel agency tell me it is a legal flight, but that does not account for long lines at customs and security.

     

    That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. If you do miss your connection, Delta flies hourly flights from Atlanta to Orlando.

    Hi, I am not a US Citizen. I will be landing at terminal I, from London at 13:55 in mid-October. I, obviously, need to get through immigration, collect and transit my luggage and am due to be departing for Tampa from terminal S at 15:30. Should this give me enough time? I know that it can often take a lot of time to get through US immigration. Thank you

     

    You don't actually have to change terminals. You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then go through security and take the Plane Train directly to your departure concourse and walk to your departure gate. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly. If you miss your connection, Delta has hourly flights from Atlanta to Tampa that you can be rebooked on.

     

  • International Arrival with 1 hr 38 minute layor

    OK, what about arrival from Managua, Nicaragua with 1 hr 38 to get through customs and catch domestic connector to Des Moines, all on Delta?

     

    That is enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

  • FROM International terminal to domestic terminal?

    Hi, I'll be arriving in the International terminal from Bermuda, and my connection is in the domestic terminal. What's the process? Will I have to collect baggage, and exit and enter security again? I do clear US Customs in Bermuda beforehand. Thanks

     

    also, both of these flights are on Delta - (Bermuda to Atlanta to California)

     

    Since you preclear US Immigration and Customs in Bermuda you don't have to do anything with your bags in Atlanta. All you have to do is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse and go to your departure gate.

     

    Thanks!

    I'm flying to Paris from Jacksonville FL, I have a flight connection in ATL a ONE hour and ONE minute layover, I'm landing at terminal S at 4:49 pm and taking off at terminal I at 5:50 pm on a Thursday, am I going to have to go through security check again in ATL, is 1h 1m enough time to get to terminal I, and how am I gonna get to terminal I, thank you!

     

    You don't actually have to change terminals. All you have to do is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart. You don't have to go through security. You have enough time.

     

  • 1 hour 15 minute layover in ATL - Tips?

    We're flying into ATL this Saturday from LGA (Laguardia). Flight lands at 8:20am and then we have a flight out of ATL into St Lucia at 9:35am. 1 hour 15 minute layover. We're New Yorkers so used to walking fast and navigating trains, but still nervous about this short layover time. I was able to get us seats towards the front of the plane on our flight into ATL (row 9) so hopefully we can get off the plane relatively quickly. Any other tips? Is the airport very busy this early on a Saturday?

     

    Saturday is the least busy day. You should have enough time as long as your flight from New York is anywhere close to on-time.

     

  • Questions of time and how to proceed

    Hi, we fly from Omaha to San Jose (Costa Rica) with exactly one hour layover in Atlanta. This is why I'm a little bit nervous, it's vacation. Is this enough time, do we have to grab our bags, pass security or US Customs? The booking says we arrive at Terminal S and leave from Terminal I. Both I can't find at the terminal map. The second flights are from Liberia (Costa Rica) to Amsterdam, layover in Atlanta is three hours. Same questions about our bags, security, US customs, time. All flights are booked and operated by Delta, except the last flight is operated by KLM. Thanks!

     

    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You don't actually have to change terminals. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart and board your flight. On your way to Amsterdam, you will arrive in Atlanta, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, go through security and to your departure gate. For both connections you have enough time.

    Hi. I'm arriving 14 October on VS103 and taking DL 2396.

     

    What time do you arrive and depart?

     

    Hi. VS103 arrives 13:55. DL2396 departs 15:35.

     

    That is barely enough time if everything goes smoothly. You will arrive, 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.

    I am flying from Houston Hobby and arrive at Terminal S, I then am catching a connecting Virgin Atlantic flight 1 hour and 10 minutes later to Manchester from I terminal. Will I make my flight? Cheers

     

    You don't actually have to change terminals. You just have to take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart. You have enough time if the flight from Houston is on-time.

    That should be plenty of time with Global Entry.

     

  • 41 minute layover flying ATL - LHR

    I have a 41 minute layover flying from Fort Myers to London, my flight from RSW to ATL is with Delta, but my flight from ATL is with Virgin. Will I have to recheck my bags? Is that enough time to connect to my flight? Feels incredibly close. Thank you.

     

    No, you do not have to do anything with your bags. You just have to take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart and board your flight. It is possible, but it obviously leaves no time to spare if the flight from Fort Myers is delayed.
