    Hi, I'm flying into Atlanta from Miami, landing at 19:54 to then take an international flight to London at 22:10. Will I have enough time to get to the correct terminal and through security etc? thanks


    Forgot to mention these are separate reservations. Flying in with Delta and out with BA. I will also have checked luggage. Thks


    With checked bags that will be very difficult. Without checked bags you can do it. You can take the plane train directly to the International terminal in that case.

    I am flying to san jose costa rica and have a connection in atl do I have to recheck bags and go through customs again?


    Where are you flying into Atlanta from?

    Then all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The plane train connects all concourses inside security.

    I am flying from Toronto, Canada to Liberia, Costa Rica. I have a 1 hour and 16 minute connection in Atlanta. Is that enough time to comfortably make the connection?


    Yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • 1hr 50min on differnt reservations on international flight
    Aug 29, 2016
    We have separate reservations with two different airlines arriving from DFW to ATL on American. We depart for Frankfurt, Germany on Delta. We have 1hr and 50min layover. Is this enough time to get from terminal T to terminal F and through security checkpoint in the international terminal to make our flight? Would appreciate any insight. Thank you.


    This is impossible with checked bags. Without checked bags you could just take the plane train from T to E or F where you depart.


  • Possible or crazy? 45 mins from Delta domestic to KLM International
    Aug 29, 2016
    I have a 45 minute connection from a domestic Delta flight to a KLM international flght coming up in 6 days. The ticket was sold to me this way. Is this doable or not really? Do I need to call the airline and try to negotiate? One handheld carry, no roller bags, and I'm seated as close to the front of the domestic flight as I can without buying first or business class, but still row 26.


    It's possible but it obviously leaves no time to spare if the first flight is delayed at all.

    Hi, I arrive into Atlanta from Manchester, uk at 15:10. I have a connection flight to LAX at 16:35 is this doable?


    I don't think that's reasonably possible unless your flight from Manchester arrives quite early, minimum is 90 minutes with 2 hours recommended.

    First time flying throught Atlanta, My flight from tallahassee, FL to Atlanta will arrive 6:12 pm and lay over time is 1 hour 3 min to fly to Baltimore Washinton airport. Shall i follow the transfer sign or connecting sign at the airport to go to the departure? or take shuttle to transfer? Is it enough time to catch the connection? Thanks


    If your arrival gate and departure gate are on the same concourse you just walk to your departure gate. If you need to change concoruses, the Plane Train runs underground at the middle of every concourse. Take it to your departure concourse. You have enough time.


    Thanks for the reply, much appreciated


  • re-check luggage
    Aug 22, 2016
    Hi, I'm flying in from Quito into Atlanta and after that have a connecting flight to New Haven with 1:30 min in between. Will i need to collect my luggage and re-check them?


    That's a very difficult connection. You have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and then go through security and to your departure gate. Are you sure you're flying to New Haven? Delta doesn't fly there. If you are connecting between two different tickets in Atlanta then 1:30 isn't enough time to do that.


    The connecting flight to new haven is operated by EXPRESSJET DBA DELTA CONNECTION. I booked it trough the delta website.


    Please double check your reservation, because Delta Connection definitely does not fly to New Haven, Connecticut. What airport code are you flying to?


  • 1 hr connection domestic to international
    Aug 22, 2016
    Hi - arriving into Atlanta with Delta and then depart to London with Virgin - only 1 hr connection time. Is this enough time to navigate airport and make London flight? Any security between domestic Delta and international Virgin flights?


    All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, no security required. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.


  • Knoxville to ATL for Barcelona Flight-48 minute layover
    Aug 22, 2016
    In September I have a Delta flight from Knoxville TN to Atlanta for a flight to Barcelona. A recent flight schedule change reduced our layover time to 48 minutes. We are over 60 and unable to run... will we be able to make this connection? I think we come into C and out of E or F.


    Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Knoxville is on-time.


  • Barcelona to Denver via Atlnata by Delta connection time
    Aug 22, 2016
    My travel agent has booked my flights with a 1:40 layover in Atlanta and insists that will be enough. Arriving ATL on DL115 from Barcelona at 14:39 departing on DL2274 to Denver at 16:20. is that enough time? I assume I will have to collect my bags at ATL and recheck after customs. then Plane train from terminal I to terminal S


    It's a very difficult connection. You don't actually change terminals. You will 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.


  • Meeting someone at ATL in between my connection
    Aug 23, 2016
    I land in ATL (on the Virgin Flight from London) at 16:05 and then take a connecting flight to Cancun at 17:55. Normally it takes about 20_30mins to get through immigration and baggage in ATL. I don't think I will need to re-check luggage as I am getting on another DELTA flight. Rather than just sit in the lounge, my boyfriend wants to come and see me for about 30mins. Would I be able to go to arrivals for a few moments then back through security to get to my gate?


    I do not think you have time for that.


    Maybe I could get a meet and greet service at Hartsfield that can help me achieve this?


  • 50 minutes B gate to F gate (SDF to GCM)
    Aug 22, 2016
    Delta is giving us 50 minutes to get from a B gate to an F gate (based on recent gate assignments for these flights which might be bad science on my part). I don't think it's possible, especially with my wife in a walking boot for a torn ligament. I have been discussing this with Delta for several weeks to no avail. No earlier flight, next leg is one flight a day, leg after that separate itinerary. Me thinks were hosed.


    It's possible. Request wheelchair service for your wife if you think it'll really slow you down (I suspect a walking boot would, although with only a torn ligament vs. a fracture you can move a lot quicker on a boot).


  • Amsterdam to Memphis
    Aug 20, 2016
    We are American citizens arriving on Sun. 12/18 at 8:20 pm from Amsterdan on KLM in Terminal I, we depart at 9:55 pm on Delta to Memphis in Terminal S. Will we have enough time to collect our checked bags, go through customs, and get to our departure gate?


    That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly. Note that you don't actually have to go to the S Terminal - once you clear customs and go back through security you will take the plane train directly to your departure concourse.
