We are about to book our ticket from Seoul to Toronto with a transfer in Atlanta. At the moment the transfer window is 1h 55min. Is there enough time? Do we have to collect our luggage and check in again?
That is just enough time. Yes, in Atlanta, 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.
I am flying from Guatemala, leave 2:19 pm, arrive in ATL at 6:45 pm. I then have a separate flight with delta to Richmond, VA at 9:17 pm. I know I have to go from the international terminal to the domestic and re check in but I forget how long that will take. Will I be okay to make my Richmond flight? I do have one checked bag. And then a carry on,
That should be just enough time. Since both flights are on Delta you should be able to show your second confirmation to the agent in Guatemala City and get your bag tagged to RIC so you can re-check it in the International Terminal, so you don't have to go to the domestic terminal.
Please advise whether you think a 2 hour connection window between a London / ATL flight and a domestic US ATL / CLT flight is enough time to pass through customs and have my bags reach the second flight, or if I should use a longer connection time (3.5 hours currently booked)? Thanks
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I will fly from New Orlenas (7:20pm ) to Atlanta (9:45pm) by delta32, and then from Atlanta (10:26pm) to Richmond (11:57pm) byy delta 2466.There will be only 46 min for me to board. I am worried that I have not enough time to board. I have no checked baggage. Looking forward your suggestions.
That is enough time if the first flight is on-time.
I am flying from MOB - ATL on Delta. From ATL, I will be flying to Manila via Qatar Airways. The domestic portion on Delta is a separate booking than the Qatar Air booking. I have a long layover in between so I'm not worried about making the connection. My questions however are: 1. When I get off the plane in ATL, do I need to go to baggage claim, pick up my bags, and re-check them in at the international terminal? 2. Given the above, what is the best way to get to the international terminal if I have to claim my luggage at the domestic baggage claim? Will I be able to use the underground train that connects all the concourses? Or will I have to take an outside shuttle to get to the international terminal?
Yes, you will go to the domestic baggage claim, pick up your bags, take the shuttle bus to the International Terminal, and re-check them with Qatar Airways.
I have played it safe & booked Man/AtL/SAV with a 4.5 hour connection time in ATL. Flying Virgin & DL, all on the same ticket. If we happen to clear immigration, baggage claim & customs relatively quickly do you think it would be possible to change to an earlier DL flight to Sav without a change fee, also are there Delta desks around the bag drop area to sort this out for us & our baggage, or do we have to go out & then come back in again? The earlier flight has a 2hr 50 layover I think. Or do you think our bags will end up getting lost? Thankyou in anticipation.
No, you would have to pay a fee to move to an earlier flight unless there are weather issues. You would also have to have your bags retagged. Yes, there are staffed Delta desks in the International Terminal where you arrive.
Thankyou very much. I guess we will just chill in a nice bar!
