I am traveling from ATL to Dulles and onto Johannesburg. Do I check in at the international terminal in Atlanta or domestic?
If the flight to Dulles is operated by United you check in at the Domestic terminal. United doesn't have a check in desk in the International Terminal.
Hi, I have never been on an airplane before. I already booked my ticket and now I am beginning to freak out about how short the layover is in ATL (40 minutes). The airline is KLM managed by Delta. Will I be able to make it to my international flight in time or should I cancel my ticket?
That is enough time if the flight from Fort Wayne is on-time. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. However, it doesn't leave much time to spare if the flight from Fort Wayne is delayed.
Thank you, I really appreciate your response! I am so nervous to fly for the first time and try to navigate all the different airports. I am watching videos online trying to get a feel for ATL. Thank you for your time:-]
I will be flying Delta from San Antonio to Exuma with a connecting flight in Atlanta. It is only a 50 minute layover. Will that be enough time to make it through customs and make the flight?
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do on your way to Exuma is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse and board your flight. You have enough time.
CAn I access Terminal F from Terminal S without going through security? I want to go to the Priority Pass Lounge called The Club in Terminal F
F is a concourse S is a terminal. All gates areas are connected inside security by the plane train.
I'm flying into ATL Terminal S via Delta - then have to catch a flight to Daytona (also in Terminal S according to printout) I only have a 39 minute layover. Will there be enough time?
That is enough time if the first flight is on-time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate using the Plane Train.
I am flying from DFW to ATL on United, where I will have 1hr 34m layover before catching and international flight with KLM from ATL to AMS. I imagine I will go through customs in ATL, rather than DFW. Will and hour and a half be enough time to get through customs in ATL and catch flight? Also, do I need to pick up my checked bag and re-check it in ATL or should it go directly to my destination?
United doesn't fly from DFW to ATL. Are you sure you aren't on American? There is no US Customs when leaving the US. If it's two separate reservations, you will have to claim your bags with your first airline, take a shuttle to the International Terminal, re-check your bags with Delta/KLM, and go through security. 1 hr 34 minutes is not enough time for that.
Hi I'm arriving on VS109 into the international terminal at 14:55 and my connection leaves from terminal south at 16:21 VS5071 operated by Delta. I only have hand luggage. Do I have enough time?
Yes, that is just enough time. All you have to do is go through US Immigration, Customs, and security and then take the Plane Train directly to your departure concourse.
How much time needed in Atlanta, traveling Cleveland to Jacksonville, all Delta flights? Any way to know which concourses will be used ? Connection time given is 65 min. Will this be enough time if have to use train within airport?
Yes, that is enough time. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security all within 10 minutes. You won't know the gates until the day of the flight.
Just wondering if we have enough time?
It is possible if the first flight is on-time and both flights are on the same reservation. However, it leaves no time to spare.
I'm arriving ATL domestic from DHN on Delta Connection then departing ATL for ICN (Inchon, Korea) from ATL IT. Am I correct in my understanding that I need to claim my checked baggage at the domestic terminal and take a shuttle bus to the IT where I check in and recheck my baggage with Korean Air Lines? Is the process the same in reverse on my return trip? Thank you.
Are both flights on the same reservation or is it two separate reservations?
If flts are on 2 tickets and baggage need to be claimed and rechecked at the international terminal what would be the process.
