  • Can I make my connection
    Mar 7, 2015

    This will be my first flight --- ever. I am looking at a flight out of New Bern on 3/10 into Atlanta with a 1hr 33min break between my connecting flight to Panama City Beach. I know the airport is huge, and I will have no idea what I am doing. Can I make my connection to PCB? Thanks.

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. Just follow signs to your departure gate.

     

  • Connection Times London-Tampa via Atlanta 1.5 hrs

    Hello, we are travelling from London to Atlanta with KLM into terminal 1 arriving 17.28 then departing for Tampa with Delta at 18.55 from Terminal S. Is this enough time. Also for the return journey - from Tampa to Atlanta with Delta arriving 20.29 terminal S then departing with KLM at 21.31 from terminal 1. Is this possible - it will be the holidays. Thank you.

     

    Atlanta does not have a Terminal 1 and in fact you do not have to change terminals at all. On your trip to Tampa you will arrive in concourse E or F, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and then take the Plane Train to your departure concourse. 87 minutes will be very difficult to make that transfer. On the return trip you only need to take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where your flight to London will depart. 1 hr is enough time there. Also, note that Delta will fly all of your flights. KLM doesn't fly from London to Atlanta.

     

    Thank you for your help. What time would you advise allowing to make the first connection - Atlanta to Tampa? Would it be advisable to alter the flight to allow more time. Thanks

     

    At least 90 minutes, preferably a little more.

    Flying with Delta, one ticket purchased, we have 1 hour to change planes at Atlanta airport, GATE B22 domestic term S. do we go thru security again? and do we need to collect our checked bags and recheck them on second flight? thank u

     

    You do not need to collect your bags or go through security. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. You have enough time.

    I'm traveling on a delta flight from MCO-ATL-BGI, with a 45 minute connection. Only using delta. Will i have to pass through security again and have enough time to make connection?

     

    You will not have to go through security. You just have to take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you will depart. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

  • 50 minutes enough time?

    I am flying Delta from Buffalo to Roanoke VA with a layover in ATL. The ticket I want to get only has a 50 minute layover in ATL. I have never been on a plane before and I am flying alone. Will I have enough time to make my connecting flight?

     

    Yes, that is enough time if your first flight is on-time. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security if your first flight is on-time. Dowload the delta app to your phone, look up your departure gate when you arrive in atl, then follow the signs to it.

    I am flying from Jacksonville to San Francisco by Delta. I have a 55 minutes lay over at Atlanta & air craft will have to be changed, will 55 minutes be sufficient? I will be having check in luggage

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

     

  • MKE - ATL - PLS

    Looking at MKE -> ATL #DL771 arrives 9:04AM, Departure is #DL509 to PLS. I'm guessing I can make the flight if things are on time but worried about my bags. Another option on AA is through CLT (but still only 50 minute layover). Will i make the connection in ATL?

     

    Or guess I should better say...will my bags make the connection?

     

    The 50 minute connection at CLT would probably be easier and safer.

     

  • Lincoln-Atlanta-Aruba Enough time?

    We are flying Delta and are scheduled for a 45 minute layover to catch the one and only flight of the day to Aruba. Can we make it? Can our luggage make it? If we don't make it, would we have to wait an entire day or would they try to send us on via Miami or another city?

     

    You can make it if your first flight is on-time and you hurry. If you do miss your connection you could probably make them try to rebook you via Miami on American.

     

    Thanks! What do you think about the luggage?

     

    If you can make it usually your luggage does too.

    I am leaving from Toronto March 13, flight Delta 2551 arriving in Atlanta at 9:34am. Connecting flight to Montego Bay Delta flight 727 leaving at 10:35 with no luggage being checked. Will I make my flight?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Atlanta is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate which will both be in the E or F concourse. You should have enough time.

    Flying Delta. Connecting in Atlanta from Montreal to San Juan PR. 2 hr mid afternoon layover which should be sufficient however should we expect any issues with luggage etc? Do not know terminals or gates yet. Thanks

     

    All you have to do is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Montreal. You don't have to do anything with baggage.

    I am flying from LEX on DL 1093 (arrive at ATL at 9am) and connecting in ATL onto DL 509 (depart at 9:45) to Turks and Caicos. Do I have enough time to make my connection?

     

    Yes, if your first flight is on-time that should be enough time. You just have to take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E/F where you will depart

    Im considering buying a ticket that will have me arrive from Austin, TX on DL1858 at 3:25 and leave on DL82 for Paris on 4:20. Will 55 minutes be enough? I might have to clear customs or?

     

    You will not clear customs. You do not go through US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where your Paris flight will depart. That should be enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

  • CAN I MAKE MY FLIGHT?

    I have a Delta Flight from boston arriving in Atlanta at 9:31pm , with a connecting Delta INTERNATIONAL flight to Brazil at 10:25pm!! I have two small children(2 & 4) but we can/do move swiftly. can we make this flight? will our luggage, I am concerned because I am checking car seats. I think gate checking them may make it more difficult to make connection(dragging them, kids etc). Will I need to clear security again? Thanks for any insights & assistance!

     

    No, you will not have to clear security. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse (E or F) and board the plane. If your first flight is on-time you should have enough time.

     

  • Enough time and distance to smoke and let dog out to potty

    I will be coming from overseas and have a 2hr and 4min layover before my connecting flight in US. I know I need to get through immigration and customs, however, I will have my little dog with me in cabin and am wondering if I will have enough time to get her out to go potty and back to my gate.

     

    No, the dog relief areas are located outside the domestic terminal, so you probably won't have time to do that.
