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.
coming with KL 5739 on 12/6 from DFW in on terminal S gate B28. Leaving with KL 622 to AMS from terminal I gate F3. Is there enough time?
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from B to F. you don't actually have to change terminals.
Also, note that KLM 5739 is Delta flight 84, so be sure to check in with Delta in DFW.
My daughter has a flight on Friday 8th December with southwest at 6.10pm to Orlando. Her auburn university shuttle will drop her off at 5.00pm. Is that enough time. She will have no luggage.
It's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. Security lines in Atlanta can be long, especially if she doesn't have PreCheck.
Hey, I'm flying from Costa Rica to NYC la guardia with delta and have 1hour and 40 mins connection in atlanta , will I make it and where do I need to go
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. This is a very difficult connection, but not impossible if everything goes smoothly.
We are flying from Grand Rapids, MI to Orlando with a 52 minute layover in Atlanta. Is that enough time to make our connection?
Yes, that's enough time if the flight from Grand Rapids is on-time.
We are arriving from Nassau into Atlanta then going to Nashville both flights Delta. Will we have to recheck our bag (only 1 check bag) in Atlanta?
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Nassau. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the plane train. You don't have to do anything with your checked baggage.
arr ATL on DL/KL from AMS and connect to KL/DL 5352 PIT.- I am pregnant and need help with bags and can I get the terminal trolley to take me to the gate- can we pay to get the service.
There are no carts at Atlanta because the concourses are only connected by a train. Just request wheelchair service if you can't walk.
Hi, I'm travelling from montreal to Puerto rico both by Delta and my lay over in Atlanta is 2h 20min., I know I have to go from international terminal to domestic terminal S but I do not know if I have to pick up my suitcase and then go to the domestic flights or my suitcase will go directly to my next flight? please need advise, I'm travelling on december 22 with my daughter and I'm stressed
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time. The Plane Train connects all concoruses inside security.

Correct, all you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, you don't have to do anything with your bags.
