My delta flight from Cabo lands at 7:15 pm and takes off for HPN from ATL at 8:44. Delta says it is not enough time what do you think? There is no other flight if I miss the connection.
That's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly. Pack an extra set of clothes and be prepared to spend the night in Atlanta if you miss your connection. Or be prepared to ask for a rebooking to LaGuardia or Newark if you miss your connection and don't want to spend the night.
Hi I am arriving on Feb 7 from Canada at 2.30PM and connecting to a flight to Jacksonville at 3.31 both on Delta. Is this enough time to move between two terminals.
That is enough time. You don't actually have to change terminals. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Canada. All you have to do in Atlanta is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse.
We have booked 2 through tickets from Heathrow to Fort Myers via Atlanta. Both flight times have been changed so we arrive in Atlanta Sat 8 March at 1.50pm and departure to Fort Myers is 3.15pm. We expect this is not enough time but have been told we will be booked on the next available flight if we miss the connection. Is this the case? Where do we go for the FM check in?
Yes, that is the case. You will be checked in for both flights in Heathrow. If you miss the connection you will go to a Delta Customer Service desk.
Hi, I am travelling with delta on a through ticket from Los Angeles to Atlanta and I have a connecting flight from Atlanta with Virgin Atlantic to the UK 50 minutes later, is this enough time to make the flight from Atlanta? I've been told we won't need to collect baggage as we are on a through ticket, but do we need to go through immigration or security? Does anyone know what happens if we missed this flight? I've been told by travel agent it is a legitimate connection but I'm a bit worried as it doesn't seem very long. Thank you.
Yes, that is enough time. There is no US Immigration or special security when leaving the US. All you have to do in Atlanta is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart and board your flight.
Thank you! Do you know what concourse the delta flight from LA will fly into? I'm hoping it's not one furthest away! Thank you
LA flights usually arrive in T or A, which are the furthest away, but the Plane Train is fast.
We are travelling from Heathrow with Virgin to Atlanta and need to pick up a Delta fight to Miami. How long do i need to leave between arrival and departure. Which terminal will my Delta flight go from and how much walking is involved?
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, then take the Plane Train directly to your departure concourse (you don't have to technically change terminals). There is a moderate amount of walking. I recommend at least 2 hours.
Hi I am arriving with my family at Atlanta on a delta flight from the UK and then 1.45hrs later flying to Orlando. My question is is this enough time as it was originally 2.25hrs to get through immigration and get to my flight. Also will my baggage be transferred or will I have to collect it and then re check it in. Two youngsters with us so I want the minimum of fuss for them. Thanks for your help.
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 on the Plane Train. You should have enough time if everything goes smoothly. Delta has hourly flights from Atlanta to Orlando.
Returning from Rome to Atlanta via Delta #65, will have 2 hours 22 min to connect with Delta 1657 to Santa Ana. Is this enough time for transfer, bags and customs?
Yes, that is enough time.
We are flying from Milwaukee WI on Delta arriving at terminal S we have a 49 minute layover until we have to leave from terminal I on Aeormexico to San Jose Del Cabo. Will this be enough time to make the connection?? little concerned.
That is enough time. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse (E or F). Both flights will be operated by Delta.
If I arrive from Amsterdam in Atlanta at 2:26 pm and my flight to Orlando leaves at 4 pm, do I have enough time to go through the whole process (immigration, bags, etc.) Both are Delta flights. Thanks.
That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. If you miss your connection, Delta has hourly flights from Atlanta to Orlando.
Thank you!
Hi, we are flying delta into altalnta, bext flight virgin to heathrow 50 mins later, is this enough time ?
Yes, if the first flight is domestic that is enough time. You just have to take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to Concourse E or F where you depart.
