  • Barcelona to Denver via Atlnata by Delta connection time
    Aug 22, 2016
    My travel agent has booked my flights with a 1:40 layover in Atlanta and insists that will be enough. Arriving ATL on DL115 from Barcelona at 14:39 departing on DL2274 to Denver at 16:20. is that enough time? I assume I will have to collect my bags at ATL and recheck after customs. then Plane train from terminal I to terminal S


    It's a very difficult connection. You don't actually change terminals. 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 take the plane train directly to your departure concourse.


  • Meeting someone at ATL in between my connection
    Aug 23, 2016
    I land in ATL (on the Virgin Flight from London) at 16:05 and then take a connecting flight to Cancun at 17:55. Normally it takes about 20_30mins to get through immigration and baggage in ATL. I don't think I will need to re-check luggage as I am getting on another DELTA flight. Rather than just sit in the lounge, my boyfriend wants to come and see me for about 30mins. Would I be able to go to arrivals for a few moments then back through security to get to my gate?


    I do not think you have time for that.


    Maybe I could get a meet and greet service at Hartsfield that can help me achieve this?


  • 50 minutes B gate to F gate (SDF to GCM)
    Aug 22, 2016
    Delta is giving us 50 minutes to get from a B gate to an F gate (based on recent gate assignments for these flights which might be bad science on my part). I don't think it's possible, especially with my wife in a walking boot for a torn ligament. I have been discussing this with Delta for several weeks to no avail. No earlier flight, next leg is one flight a day, leg after that separate itinerary. Me thinks were hosed.


    It's possible. Request wheelchair service for your wife if you think it'll really slow you down (I suspect a walking boot would, although with only a torn ligament vs. a fracture you can move a lot quicker on a boot).


  • Amsterdam to Memphis
    Aug 20, 2016
    We are American citizens arriving on Sun. 12/18 at 8:20 pm from Amsterdan on KLM in Terminal I, we depart at 9:55 pm on Delta to Memphis in Terminal S. Will we have enough time to collect our checked bags, go through customs, and get to our departure gate?


    That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly. Note that you don't actually have to go to the S Terminal - once you clear customs and go back through security you will take the plane train directly to your departure concourse.


  • Flying to Japan
    Aug 20, 2016
    I'm flying to Japan from Atlanta in November. What do I do first? It departs at 10:15 am and I have to exchange currency etc. is 4am good enough?


    That's plenty of time. You could arrive as late as 7:30-8 AM and be OK.


    Also, all you have to do is go to the International Terminal, check your bags (if you have checked baggage), and go through security.


  • Enough time to connect?
    Aug 20, 2016
    We arrive in Atlanta on Sunday from Amsterdam on Delta airlines. We have 1 hour 30 mins to connect to our flight to MCO with Delta. Will this be enough time? Will we need to collect luggage etc.


    This is cutting it very close. Unless your flight from Amsterdam is early, you probably won't be able to make the flight to Orlando. However, Delta runs hourly services down to Orlando, so they'll put you on the next flight out if you miss your scheduled one.


    Why do they put these two flights together then? Crazy.


  • Short Layover
    Aug 19, 2016
    I have a 38 minute layover in ATL on a Sunday afternoon. Arriving flight on Delta from Greensboro, NC and departing flight on Delta to Orlando. Is this enough time?


    It's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. No time for delays. If you miss your connection then Delta has hourly flights from Atlanta to Orlando.


  • EWR to Cancun via ATL - 1 hour change
    Aug 19, 2016
    We have 1 hour to make a connection in Atlanta to Cancun (arriving from Newark). All flights are with Delta. Will we need to collect our bags? Will 1 hour be enough time?


    You don't have to do anything with your bags. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. 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.


    Thanks Zap. On our return, we have 1hr 48 to transfer from our Cancun flight to one heading to the UK - how does that sound for time?


    Yes, that should be just enough time.

    Hi I'm arriving in Atlanta from Dublin with delta at 13 55 and have one hour and 5 mins to transfer to Atlanta Mco flight is that enough timef


    Yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Connection time
    Aug 17, 2016
    I am a German national flying from Monterrey, Mexico to Prague, Czech Republic through Atlanta and JFK. Arriving to ATL 12:08, leaving for JFK 14:06. All with Delta. Is the two hour layover enough for customs, migration, re-check baggage etc?


    Yes, that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Time btw Terminals
    Aug 16, 2016
    Im flying Delta Lga nyc to Atl arriving teminal B then departing to Lima terminal E I have hour and ten . it is possible to make this connection?


    B and E are just concourses not terminals. All you have to do is take the plane train from B to E, you should have enough time.


    Thanks for the information


  • Punta Cana - ATL - DTW
    Aug 16, 2016
    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.


  • enough time to clear US customs?
    Aug 16, 2016
    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!


  • security and immigration
    Aug 16, 2016
    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.
