  • Punta Cana - ATL - DTW

    My flight was changed - instead of 1:40 minute layover - only an hour is allotted. Flying from Punta Cana, so I have to go through immigration and get bags and such. Is an hour enough time? I'm quite worried.

     

    That is not enough time. you need to contact Delta and request a later flight to DFW.

    I am a US citizen arriving Atlanta (ATL) from Paris (CDG) at 2:35 pm on Nov 22, 2016. Connecting flight to Charlotte (CTL) at 4:15 pm. Is 1 hour 40 min enough time to clear US Customs and get to the connecting gate?

     

    That's just enough time if everything goes perfectly.

     

    Thanks for your advice!

    im flying with Delta from costa rica into ATL with a connection time of the 1 hour and 30 mins then on to London. Do I have to go through immigration and collect luggage to connect with Delta london flight?

     

    Yes, you will 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. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Leaving MCI (Kansas City) to ATL arrival time 10:58 am Leaving ATL 12:00pm to MBJ Is this enough time? What will our process be? i.e. Recheck baggage, security, etc.

     

    There is no US Immigration and Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Atlanta on your way to Montego Bay is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

    I will be connecting in Atlanta next Sunday, arriving at roughly 14:00 on DL73(AMS) and will be leaving at 16:00 on DL2586. If I get my bags checked to final destination (MCO), will I still need to collect and recheck them in Atlanta? Will there be enough time to connect?

     

    Yes, in Atlanta 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 take the plane train to your departure concourse. You should have enough time.

    I land in Atlanta Georgia on the 1st September 2016 at 15.10 local time and I have 1 hour 25 minutes to catch my connecting flight to Las Vegas,will this be enough time

     

    If you arriving on a domestic flight, you will have no trouble making your flight, barring any delays, as all gates are connected inside of security by the Plane Train. However, if your flight into Atlanta is international, you will have to go through customs and immigration, along with security, making it a very tough turnaround leaving no room for delays.

     

    I'm coming in from Manchester on virgin airlines carrying hand luggage,it's looking out of my hands but I thought it was down to them to make sure your on your connecting flight on time

     

    The problem, fletch, is that even if your Virgin flight is on time, you will probably not be able to make your Delta flight to Las Vegas. Your only realistic chance of making the flight is if your flight from Manchester lands 15-20 minutes early, and it's still be right. If I were you, I'd contact Delta or Virgin Atlantic (whichever you booked the ticket through) and try to change the flight. With this I assume that these flights were booked on the same reservation. If not, please let me know.

     

    However, if you miss the flight in Atlanta, Delta will book you on the next flight to Las Vegas that evening, free of charged (assuming your two flights were booked on the same reservation).

     

    Yeah mate they were booked on the same reservation called netflights

     

  • Flight from Monterrey, Mexico to PHL via ATL

    Hi, This Sunday August 14th, I am flying from Monterrey to PHL via ATL and arrive at ATL at 12:11 DELTA, and my connecting via DELTA also leaves at 2:05 to PHL. Is that enough time to go through US Immigration, grab checked bag, re-check bag, and go to other terminal, I am a US Citizen. Or do you recommend I do not check any baggage?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. You do not actually have to change terminals. Once you re-check your bags and go through security you just have to take the plane train to your departure concourse.

    I have an international flight starting in GreenVille (South Carolina), making connection in Atlanta and final destination Barcelona. I will arrive at Atlanta airport (if frist flight goes on time) at 3h44 pm at South Terminal and the international Flight to Barcelona will take off at 5h33 pm. Will I have enough time? What do you think? Thank you very much for your support. I will be arriving on

     

    I forgot to add that I am a Spanish citizen. Where will I have the international security check, at Greenville or Atlanta?ยบ

     

    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 will go through regular security in Greenville, you do not have to go through security in Atlanta. There is no such thing as "International security check" and there is no US Customs when leaving the US.

    I have 1 hour 15 minutes to get from my domestic flight to international flight to Cartagena thru ATL... Will I have enough time? Do they make you go thru security again at ATL?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. You do not have to go through security again. You just have to take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart.

     

  • What Terminal

    Flight to Costa Rica Where do I park and what terminal do I check in with

     

    You park at an off-site lot or at the International Terminal and you will check in and depart at the international terminal.

     

    This is assuming you are flying Delta nonstop to Costa Rica. Please post if that is not a correct assumption.

     

    What is the cost to park in international terminal for 5 days

     

    The international Park & Ride lot is $12/day, so it would be $60.

    Hi, I am coming from Istanbul via turkish airlines to go to Seattle connecting flight Delta, I have 2 hours to clear immigration and customs , do you think thats enough time ?

     

    If you have two separate reservations and checked bags, no, that is not enough time.

    Hi, I am travelling from Las Vegas to Manchester and have a connection in Atlanta. I only have 40 minutes from when i arrive in Atlanta to when my flight leaves. Will i have enough time?

     

    Yes, that is enough time if your flight from Las Vegas is on-time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The plane train connects all concourses inside security.

    OK I am flying from Tri City to Atlanta to catch a connecting flight to manchester...The time between landing in Atlanta and the time my flight to Manchester leaves is 48 minutes, now i have been told by the agent that this is a legal flight and people have done this flight before....Question, in the event that everything is ok from Tri City and I still miss the flight will Virgin rebook me on another flight?? Thanks

     

    Yes, if you miss your connection you will be rebooked on a later flight to Manchester, likely through Amsterdam or Paris. 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.

     

    Thanks.................so I wont have to pay for more tickets. ?

     

    No, you will not.

     

    Thanks for your help

     

  • Miami Montreal with connection in Atlanta with DELTA

    Hi there, my mom has a flight from Miami to Montreal next Monday, I'm a little bit worry about the time she has for the connection in Atlanta, is just one hour, all the flight is with Delta, I would like to know if Delta works like others airlines, I mean they know my mom is checked from Miami, will they wait her if she has some delay in the transit to the gate? She has not experience in airports, Could she ask some kind of assistance to the ground personal? my fear is she could lost the connection. Thank you very much for your help.

     

    They will not wait for her, but she has enough time. All she has to do is go from her arrival gate to her departure gate. The Atlanta airport is very large but the layout is very simple, every concourse is connected at the middle by the Plane Train, which runs underground.

     

    Thanks for your response, I have another question, I see in my moms ticket thet she will arrive to Terminal S and she has to connect in Terminal I, I suppose the I terminal is the international one, but in the map of the airport i dont see any S terminal could you clarify this to me, is to explain her

     

    Ignore it. She doesn't have to change terminals - she just has to go from her arrival concourse to her departure concourse.
