    Hi we are a family of 4 travelling from Vegas to Manchester UK via Atlanta flying inbound with Delta and outbound with Virgin, we have a 54 minute transfer time will this be enough?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do in Atlanta is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you will depart.

    Hi, I'm flying from Madrid to Toronto via Atlanta, I have 2h29m between flights. Do I have enough time to get and recheck my bags, and make it to my gate? Should I get the train? Are the gates close? Than you so much ofr your help

     

    Yes, in Atlanta you will arrive in the E or F gates, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security. Your flight to Toronto will likely also leave from the E or F gates so you may not have to take the train.

     

    Thanks a lot!

     

  • Can I leave the airport briefly when connecting intl>>domestic?

    I'm arriving at ATL from Brazil and connecting to a domestic flight 5 hours later. I know I'll have enough time for immigration and customs, but rather than immediately rechecking my bags, can briefly Ieave the international arrivals area with my bags and recheck later for my domestic flight?

     

    Maybe, it depends on the agent at the check in counters. You won't be able to re-access the international bag re-check. You'll have to say you "forgot" to re-check your bags. Why do you need your bags with you when you leave the airport?

     

    Actually, it's because my plans have changed and I just will not take the last leg of my itinerary as scheduled. It was too expensive to change to a different final destination so I'm buying a separate one-way to the other city which is cheaper than changing the routing.

     

    Then yes, rip the tags off your bags when you exit customs and follow the signs for passengers ending their trip in Atlanta. You'll have to take the shuttle bus to the Domestic terminal and then re-check your bags for your new domestic flight. Note that if you do this and the domestic flight you have booked attached to your international flight is not the last flight of your itinerary, the rest of your itinerary will be cancelled.

     

    Yep, it's the final return leg of the original itinerary from the US to S. America and back. Thanks for the tips!

     

  • St Louis to Sarasota with 45 minutes in ATL

    How would I navigate from where I'm landing in ATL to when I would take off from? I'm flying delta in and out but only have 45 minutes from landing to take off. Any other information you think I need would also be greatly appreciated! I'm a nervous traveler.

     

    All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Download the Delta app to your phone to have the most up to date information on your flight. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. You have enough time if your flight from St. Louis i son-time.

    I have a flight coming from Charlotte to Amsterdam and the connection in ATL. We will have 1:48 hr layover. Will this be enough?

     

    Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where your flight to Amsterdam will depart.

     

    Thanks!

     

  • 50 minutes to get to my connecting flight????

    I'm flying in from Columbus GA to ATL with 50 minutes to get to my flight to DFW. Do I have enough time to get to the terminal? (first flight by myself)

     

    You do not have to change terminals. All you have to do is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse. Just check your departure gate on the screens or delta.com on your phone and follow signs to the plane train and then to that concourse and then to that gate. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    Flying Tampa to Cleveland. First layover is 2:07. The return trip, layover = 1:05. They do not want wheelchairs but could benefit from jitney that runs the concourse. They move so much slower now. I've been tracking the flight numbers and over 3 days, 5 out of 6 require walk 1/2 a concourse to plane train, then walk another half concourse. This could be trouble if they miss the connecting flight where their inbound was on time. Thoughts?

     

    The "Jitney" is for people with wheelchair service. Either they request wheelchair service or walk. On the way back it wouldn't be the end of the world if they missed their connection since there's pretty much hourly flights from Atlanta to Tampa.

    I have a connecting flight at atlanta coming from Kin onto Kansas. What do I do?

     

    You will arrive in concourse E or F, 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.

     

    Thank you so much. Really appreciate the assistance.

    I have a 39 min layover from Boston-Atlanta, then onto Grand Cayman, is that enough? how would i get to the international terminal from the domestic terminal in enough time? thx much!

     

    That is barely enough time if the first flight is on-time. You take the Plane train from your arrival concourse to Concourse E or F where your flight to Grand Cayman will depart.

    You will arrive in concourse E or F, 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. Your MDW flight will probably depart from concourse A, B, or C.

     

    thank you

    Hi, travelocity is setting me up with a 59 min layover before I head out to Buenos Aires. Landing from Louisville at 6:20 PM. Flying out at 7.19 PM. Is this enough time to make the flight including checked bags? Travelocity says this is the only flight available. Thanks.

     

    Yes, if your flight fro Louisville is on-time that is enough time. All you have to do in Atlanta is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you will depart.

     

  • PUJ to ATL to LAX

    Hi, We will be arriving in ATL from PUJ at 5.30 pm via Delta. Our connecting flight on AA to LAX leaves at 7.10. Do you think 1 hour 40 minutes will be enough time to accomplish this? Thank you for your expertise!

     

    On two separate tickets? No, that's pretty much impossible.

     

    We are coming from our destination wedding in PUJ and eventually heading to Tahiti by way of LAX. We had an all American Airlines flight (PUj to MIA to LAX) and they dropped the portion to LAX, so we had no choice to book sometthing on a different airline. Can I ask why you think it is impossible? Would global entry remedy the situation? Thanks!

     

    Because you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then exit the international terminal and take a shuttle bus to the Domestic terminal to re-check your bags with AA, then go through security. 100 minutes isn't really enough time to do that.

    I have a 1 1/2 hour connection time into ATL from MBJ going to FSD. Is this enough time? Thanks

     

    That should be barely enough time if your flight from Jamaica is on-time.
