Arriving in ATL from MCI with a 54 minute connection to San Juan, Peurto Rico all on Delta, same ticket. Is this possible. A bit worried about our baggage getting there with us as we then fly Cape Air to Mayaguez.
Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Kansas City is on-time. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.
I will arrive in Atlanta on flight 5437 from Asheville NC on August 19 and will need to transfer to flight 5356 to Newporty News. I am 82 years old, haven't flown in 30+ years and am very insecure about how to make the next flight. Would very much appreciate a bit of guidance!
The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. But there's actually a pretty good chance both of your flights will be in the same concourse.
We arrive at 14:55hrs from Manchester UK and depart to Kansas City at 16:23hrs - is this enough time? Also do we have to collect and re-check in our bags?
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 take the plane train to your departure concourse. You have less then the 90 minute bare minimum and far less than the 2 hours minimum I recommend, so that is a very risky connection.
I'm flying virgin/delta can I not check my bags though to Kansas City?
You have to claim your bags in Atlanta to take them through US Customs. Everyone has to do this when entering the US.
I have a 1 hour transfer time on a proposed flight with a terminal change between s - l. Does this provide sufficient time for connection ?
You don't actually have to change terminals. You just have to take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
hi we will be flying to orlando with virgin atlantic on 22 aug from the uk we connect in atlanta with a time of 3 hours is this plenty of time and will all become clear with the signage etc at the airport as we have never had a connecting flight before and i am getting more nervous by the minute
Hi I am flying into ATL on 19th Aug from MAN on Virgin Atlantic and then fly out on Delta to GSP. Will I have to collect my bags and re-check them? If so where will I go to do this? When I make the return journey will I have to do the same?
Yes, on the way to Greenville/Spartanburg in Atlanta, 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 to your departure gate. On the way back to Manchester all you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival concourse to concourse F where you depart on the Plane Train - nothing with your bags.
Hi, arriving delta 698, leaving on delta 1990 wed aug 23, need gate and transfer info
You will have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security. Both gates will likely be in Concourse E, but you won't know your exact gates until the day of your flight. You should have enough time.
Hi sorry, should have been more specific. I am arriving ATL from GCM (Grand Cayman) on Delta 698 and transferring to Delta 1990 to YYZ (Toronto). Will I still need immigration etc clearance?
Hello, I have a 1.50 hrs layover in ATL to get to the plane for NRT, all via Delta Air.
Two things - should I get my bags from MCI and do a bag drop for my NRT flight? Or should I just go straight to the gate for my NRT flight because Delta will manage all bag transfer from one flight to another?
Thank you so much!
You don't have to do anything with your bags in Atlanta on your way to Tokyo. Just take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart and walk to your departure gate.
