Flying Delta from MKE to St. Lucia in March 2017. Have 45 min. between arrival and departure flights. I presume departure flight is considered international. Is 45 min. enough time to get to departure gate from arrival gate assuming flight from MKE is on time?
Yes, the plane train connects all concourses inside security.
I land in Delta South Terminal @ 10:15am and need to board an International Delta Plane by 10:55am will I have enough time to make this connection and what is the best route for me to take.?
You just 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.
I am travelling to Nepal first time alone. So, I am bit nervous about going for the wrong direction or get lost. Could you please, help me in brief how do I go from first security check to catch my flight for Los Angeles as connecting flight ?
Thanks!
You go check your bags, follow the signs to security, go through security, and then follow the signs to your gate. Unless you depart from Concourse T, you will take the Plane Train underground to your concourse. Then go up the escalator and follow the signs to walk to your gate.

My Jan 16 RDU-ATL flight arrives at ATL at Term A or Term C. My ATL-CDG flight departs from ATL from Intl Terminal. Is 1 hour enough connection time? Do I need to collect my luggage in ATL? When I check in at RDU, can I check in my luggage all the way to BOM?
A and C are concourses not Terminals. You don't have to do anything with your bags in Atlanta. If all flights are on the same reservation your bags will be checked through to BOM. All you have to do in Atlanta is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to E or F where you depart and board your flight to Paris.
I'm flying Delta from Havana to New York via Atlanta. I know I'll have to go through customs in Atlanta, but will I have to go through security in order to get to my New York connection? I don't want my Cuban rum being confiscated because it's a liquid.

Also, I've heard that upon arriving in Atlanta, I'll need to pick up my bag from baggage claim and check in again, I can't check my bag through to it's final destination. Is this true?
Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then put the rum in your checked bag, then re-check it at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate via the Plane Train.
I am flying from SFO to atlanta on the (delta) 23rd Dec with a connecting flight to manchester UK departing 1hr16mins after landing. Is this enough time to change terminals? and do I have to get my luggage in ATL ? Thanks
Yes, you don't actually have to change terminals and you don't have to claim your luggage. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart and board your flight.
Arriving from UK on VS109 in to TS at 14.45 - connecting flight is D1265 at 16.30 from T5. Are we likely to encounter problems? how do we get from S to 5?
Sorry to confuse! VS109 arrives at T1 in ATL and D1265 departs from Terminal S.
So you will actually arrive in the E or F gates (likely 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 directly to your departure concourse. You don't actually have to go to the S Terminal. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
We missed our connecting flight to San Francisco due to delayed arrival (rain). We are standby 1 and 2 for the next available flight. What are the chances of getting confirmed seats?
There's no way for us to tell how full they are. They all appear to be quite full as none of the have any availability left for sale. To get on them a lot of other people will have to miss their connections to them. If you really want to get home tonight, United is still selling seats on their 7:17 PM nonstop flight to San Francisco for $521 per person. There are actually plenty of empty seats on that flight so maybe you should pressure Delta to rebook you on the United flight.
Will I have enough time to go from Terminal S to Terminal I in 45 minutes? Toronto - Atlanta - San Jose. All Delta
My apologies, it is Terminal I to Terminal S.
You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Atlanta is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse. You don't have to actually change terminals. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.
