I plan to take Delta Airlines single ticket from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic to Los Angeles via Atlanta (first time). I hold a valid multiple entry B1/B2 visa to the USA. The connection in Atlanta is 1hr and 50 mins (evening time 6:30pm). Is this enough time to make my connection and what process do I need to go through at Atlanta?
That is enough time if everything goes smoothly. In Atlanta, you will 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 on the Plane Train.
Hello, We are coming from jacksonville airport with an connecting flight to amsterdam. Does we have to need to reclaim our luggage and does we have to go to security another time?
There is no US Immigration or customs when leaving the US. If both flights are on Delta all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the Plane Train.
Hey Guys,

Hoping someone can help, we've traveled loads but all of our connecting flights have always been done in Europe or we've had domestic us connections in the us however, we have a connection from Jamaica to Dusseldorf of 1.56hr...so international to international ... i've checked the flights which are landing and leaving today one arrives in E6 and the other departs from E8 (perhaps vise versa) how does this work ? i assume its not as simple as getting off of the plane at one and going directly to the other. Hoping someone can advise :)
You will have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security. You should not have to claim and re-check your bags. If you are EU residents you'll need to complete ESTA.
Based on my experience yesterday - 1 hour 50 minutes just in the line for passport control - I would say 2.5 hours minimum. There are lots of desks for rebooking flights, so I think it must be really common. Passport control is very inefficient and disorganized. Very few desks open.
I will be flying into Atlanta on a Delta Airlines flight from San Diego having to connect to an Endeavor Air flight. What terminal does Endeavor fly out of? How would I get from Terminal A, B or C to the Endeavor terminal?
A, B, and C are concourses, not terminals. You will arrive in T, A, or B and depart from C or D. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. Endeavor is just the operating company for a Delta connection flight. You won't see the word Endeavor except in small type on the side of the plane by the door.
First time arriving in Atlanta on international flight (Delta). We have 2hrs 10 min to connect our next flight to RDU. Will this be enough time and what is the customs procedure in Atlanta? Will we have to claim and re-check our luggage? Is arriving on a Tuesday any better than arriving on a weekend?
You will arrive, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and take the Plane Train to your departure concourse. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am flying in from Manchester with Virgin Atlantic and have a connecting flight to Cleveland Ohio via Delta , will I have to claim my luggage and go through security checks in Atlanta , or will they send my luggage straight on to Cleveland , and I go through security there ?
Yes, in Atlanta, you will 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 and gate.
On a flight from Atlanta to Glasgow with a layover at JFK, do I depart from Atlanta from Domestic or International?
you go to the domestic terminal.
Thank you!
I am flying from ATL to London connecting through Philadelphia on July 31, 2017 - BA #1909 then BA #0066. Do I check in at the International Terminal or the Domestic Terminal?
You check in at the domestic terminal. Your first flight is operated by American. American does not even have a check-in desk in the International Terminal.
Coming into Atl on flight DL2433 at 12:54
Departing on Flight DL1271 at 1:50

What gates and terminal do I arrive at and depart from?
Do we have time to make our connection?
You won't know your gates until the day of your flight. Delta uses every concourse in Atlanta. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Our flight is from Atlanta to Barcelona but 1 stop in Philadelphia. Will I check in at the domestic terminal since initially flying to Philly or at the International terminal since destination is Barcelona? Thank you!
Yes, you go to the domestic terminal. American only has a check-in desk in the Domestic terminal, so you wouldn't even be able to check in at the International Terminal.
