In September I have a flight from LIT landing in ATL at 1441. I then have connecting flight to EWR at 1525. These are with delta on one ticket. Will there be enough time to connect? Is there a way to find out the gate number prior to boarding/getting off first flight from LIT?
Yes, that is enough time. Download the Delta app or check Delta.com on your phone after you land to find out the departure gate for your flight to Newark.
I am taking a shuttle to Atlanta airport but it only does drop offs to the International Departure gate- I need to get tot he international Arrival Gates instead. Is there a way for me to get to the International Arrival section from the International Departure section??????? Please help.
They're just two floors of the same building. However, there's not much on the arrivals floor that you can access - why do you need to go there?
The shuttle I'm taking will only drop me at the departure gate they're not allowed to drop anyone at the arrival gate
I'm meeting someone at the arrival gate
Then you can just walk downstairs to the Arrivals level or have them walk upstairs to the departures level.
Our flight DL2396 from RSW arrives ATL at 20:15.

Layover is 1hr 18mins before connecting flight DL0032 departs ATL at 21:33 for LHR (arrive next day at 11:05).

Is 1hr 18mins sufficient time (on the incoming flight on Apr 4 we missed our connection due to the long delays at ATL security so we are concerned).

Note that when we booked the layover was longer but the schedules have been changed.
All you have to do in Atlanta on your way to London is go from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart on the Plane Train. You have enough time.
Thank you, that's a great relief.
Arriving in Atlanta from Irelandwith Delta partner at 14.27 to catch a connecting domestic flight to Miami also partnered with Delta at 16.25. I don,t know if this is enough time given customs, immigration clearance etc. Any ideas?
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ireland. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.
ZAP, thanks for the update. I forgot about pre-clearance as last trip Stateside was through Manchester UK.
Can we travel from International Terminal to the Domestic terminal after baggage claim is completed in International terminal?
Yes, there is a bus to the domestic terminal outside security. If you have a connection and are able to re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then you can go through security in the International Terminal and take the Plane Train directly to your departure concourse.
Coming into atlanta on Delta at 8:30-gate A32....
Next flight takes off at 9:16 Gate D40
On my boarding pass it says boarding starts at 8:36!!! Is this do-able .. how long a "walk-jog" is this !!?? Thanks for any info to ease my mind!!
By the time your flight lands, you get off and find your way to the train-plane, your 9:16 flight will be long gone. Sorry!
That's not necessarily true. The times you see are not "take off" and "landing" times. They are "arrive gate" and "depart gate" times. You have a chance if the first flight is on-time.
We arrive on a flight from IAD to ATL at 2:27. Our connecting fly light to Houston departs at 3:05 out of T-16. Will we have enough time to make our connection. Not sure what gate we will arrive in ATL.
It sounds like both flights are on United. If so they will both be at the same end of concourse T. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if this is true.
I have an early morning 6:55am domestic delta flight. What time should I get to the airport by the least? I was planning to take the the first MARTA train which arrives.at the airport station on 5:26 but would that be too late? I carry a non-US passport.
Just adding... I actually arrive the night before via international flight with Delta (around 8pm), but am leaving the airport for 11hrs lay over. Is it possible to do anything in advance before I leave the airport (e.g. check my bags) to shorten the time for next morning?
You can't check in until the morning of your flight. I suggest being at the airport closer to 5, so that means taking a taxi.
Arriving into Atlanta at 8:30pm on Delta.. doesn't give an arriving gate ..
flight out is with Delta also at 9:16pm.. on my pass.. it says loading starts at 8:36!! Am I going to be able to make this flight??!! I'm worried !!!
Yes, you can make it as long as the first flight is on-time, but you have no time to spare.
Does virgin share deltas curbside check Into?
No, they do not.
