  • Connection to MEX

    I will arrive in ATL from LGA on Sunday Dec. 18 at 18:45 to connect 40 minutes later to a flight to MEX. Do I have enough time? I don't have checked luggage.

     

    Yes, you have enough time, but there's no time to spare if the flight from LaGuardia is delayed. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart.

     

    Thanks. But why does the itinerary speaks of terminal I and terminal S?

     

    That's just a template that it hast to fill. You don't actually have to go to "Terminal S".

     

  • Connecting at Atlanta back to Heathrow from New Orleans

    Hi I have a flight from New Orleans (Delta) to Atlanta arriving at 5.45, and I need to get a connecting flight back to Heathrow (Virgin) at 6.45. Is an hour enough? Will I have to collect luggage and drop it off again. Getting worried as my flight times changed on the first flight resulting in only an hour. It is on the same ticket.

     

    You don't have to do anything with your bags in Atlanta on your way to London. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart. You have enough time.

    Hello. we will be flying from Jamaica on Delta December to JFK but connect ATL. on the itinerary we arrive at Maynard Jackson Intl terminal , then depart from the South terminal to JFK. whats the procedure?

     

    You will arrive in Concourse E or F, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and take the Plane Train directly to your departure concourse. You do not actually need to go to the "South Terminal".

     

  • From RSW to AMS

    I arrive in Atlanta from Fort Myers (RSW) at 4.35pm and my flight leaves at 5.52pm to Netherlands (AMS). Is 1 hour 17 minutes enough to get through the queues etc?

     

    Update - - Delta Airlines flight 9436 inbound from RSW, Delta flight 75 outbound to AMS - 2 adults with a toddler, and I'm booking my luggage straight through on my 1 leg of my trip., But on my return leg, but when I fly back from Netherlands to ATL, I need to recheck my luggage.

     

    You don't have to go through any queues. All you have to do in Atlanta on your way to Amsterdam is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate using the Plane Train. Yes, on the return you will have to claim your bags upon arrival in Atlanta to go through US Customs then immediately re-check them.

     

    Thank you! What is your view on the return from Amsterdam? Do you think that 1h40 min is enough to check in my bags and go to the departure gate to RSW?

     

    It's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.

     

    Does it make a difference that we land at ATL from Netherlands on Sunday, 1st Jan at 7pm? Hoping that the airport is quiet and thus we''ll move faster.

     

    That will be a fairly busy travel day, with lots of people returning from vacations that day.

    I am considering booking a flight from Havana to Houston via Atlanta in February next year. First class, hand carry only. Will 1 hr 11m be enough for immigration and my connection?

     

    My bad. 1 hr 11 minutes was outbound. Inbound is 2 hrs 47 minutes.

     

    Yes, that is enough time for the inbound connection.

    I am flying into ATL from SDQ (International). My connecting flight to DCA departs 50 min after I arrive. I won't have any checked bags, will I make my flight?

     

    No, that is not enough time for an International to domestic connection in Atlanta, even without checked bags.

    Hi. I will be traveling from Jamaica, connecting at ATL to Amsterdam. How do I navigate myself around. Which gate will I be connecting. How do I get mt bags before connecting? Thank you

     

    You will arrive in Concourse E or F, go through US Immigration, claim your bags (it will be right after), then go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate, which will be in the same building you arrived in.

    I'm flying in from IAD and have 45 min connection time between the inward and outward flight to PBI (Delta). Is it enough time?

     

    Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Dulles is on-time. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

    Looking into an early morning Delta flight on Sun Aug 6th 2017 from PNS to SLC. Lay-over in ATL is 39 minutes. Is that doable?

     

    Yes, it is doable if the flight from Pensacola is on-time. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

     

  • Confused about connecting flights...please help

    I am about to book flight from London Heathrow with Virgin Atlantic which will stop in Atlanta and then onward flight booked at the same time as a "through ticket" onto Montego Bay, Jamaica. Do I have to collect bags, go through customs and then drop bags and go through security? If so, I presume the 1hr 17mins time between flights will not be enough??? Advise please

     

    Yes, you 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 to your departure gate. That is a very difficult connection, bordering on impossible.

     

  • terminal s

    my itinerary says my flight lands in Atlanta at terminal S. i dont see a terminal S on the map. can anyone help me?

     

    It means the South side of the domestic terminal. If you're just changing planes in Atlanta you don't have to go there. You just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the plane train.

     

  • enough time

    I arrive in the south terminal at 10:59 and have an international flight leaving at 12:02. Is that enough time? I think I check my bags at my first departure airport all the way thru.

     

    If your bags are checked all the way though then you just have to take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where your international flight will depart. You have enough time.

    I land in ATL from the UK and have 2 hours to connect to Gainsville with Delta. Will I have to collect and recheck my bags and do I have enough time to do this?! Any advice on what I will need to do to get from my international flight to connecting flight would be much appreciated. Thank you.

     

    Yes, you will arrive in concourse E or F, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, go through security and take the plane train to your departure concourse and walk to your departure gate. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

  • 43 minute layover terminal A to terminal C

    3 adults with 2 kids - is this enough time to get from A6 to C34? I am guessing on gates. looking at current gate selections for flight # and time. Flights are not until Nov 6th but will cost to change them now for longer layover.

     

    The gates are definitely subject to change. You won't know the exact gates until the day of your flight. Yes that is enough time. A and C aren't terminals, they're just concourses. All concourses are connected inside security by the Plane Train.
