I am travelling from Heathrow to Wilmington with a 1 hr 55 min layover in Atlanta. Is this long enough? I've never visited the USA before, will my luggage be checked through and do I have to go through customs/ security?
In Atlanta, you will 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. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Our Southwest arrival from Punta Cana is at 6:45PM can we make a domestic El Paso flight at 8PM?
Considering the El Paso flight will be on Delta, no, that's not enough time.
This flight is a Southwest not Delta. Do you still think we will not have enough time?
Then it's still very difficult.
I have a domestic connection from atlanta to newark. Then a international connection from Newark to Glasgow. Do I go to the domestic terminal in Atlanta and will my bags be transferred to the International Connection in Newark for me? Also do I have to be in Atlanta 3 hrs or 1 1/2 hrs before the domestic part of the flight.
If you are flying United then you go to the domestic terminal - there is no United check-in desk in the International Terminal. Yes, you don't have to do anything with your bags in Newark on the way to Glasgow. You do not have to be at the airport 3 hours before your flight in Atlanta. I recommend 2 hours.
We have a connecting flight with a 49 minute layover in Atlanta prior to our flight to London. How do you recommend we get from Terminal S to Terminal I? The Flights are Delta 80 landing in Atlanta and Delta 28 to London. Thanks!
You don't actually have to change terminals. You just take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart. You have enough time.
Hi- My family is traveling on Delta from Ord to ATL where we have a 43-minute layover to catch our international Delta flight to SXM (the flights were purchased together). If the first flight is on-time, will we make it? I'm hoping our luggage will be transferred for us and we won't have to go through security to make the connection. Is this accurate and do you have any time saving suggestions? Thank you so much- we can use all the advice we can get!!! This is making me super nervous- lol.
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. Correct, you don't have to do anything with your bags or go through security in Atlanta on the way to St. Maarten.
Thank you for your reply! That makes me feel much less anxious.

Take care,
Rachel
Hi I arrive on Sunday at 20.39 to Atlanta from New Orleans my connecting flight to London is scheduled to leave at 21.33 from Atlanta, leaving me 54 mins - is this enough time?
Also will I need to collect and recheck my bags?

Thanks
That is enough time. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse. You don't have to do anything with your bags.
Hi,

I arrive into atland on Sunday from New Orleans at 20.39 my connecting flight to London is at 21.33 both with delta. Leaving me 54 mins between connections.
Today I missed my connecting flight from JFK to New Orleans due to delays at security and had to pay 75 dollars for a new flight.

Will I have enough time between my New Orleans and Atlanta flight to London?? Also will I have to reclaim my bag and do the drop off again?

Thanks
You won't have to do anything with your bags in Atlanta. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the Plane Train.

Mother & toddler travelling from London to Louisville (SDF) via Atlanta.Will arrive at international terminal and then next flight is from Terminal S. After immigration & custom
1. How to get to Domestic Term-South (connecting flight)

2. Is there any recheck baggage counter near/next to customs where luggages can be checked in again to avoid carrying luggage through plain train to south terminal?

3. Any facility that can be availed to avoid carrying luggage ? except for wheel chair assistance
After you clear customs you will re-check your bag at the re-check desk right after clearing customs, then go through security and take the Plane Train directly to your departure concourse, no need to actually go to the S Terminal.
I'm traveling from Santiago, Chile (SCL) on August 11th to LAX. I have a connection in ATL. According to my itinerary, I have 1h 52m layover between my international flight from SCL and my domestic flight to LAX. Is that enough time to get through customs, claim and recheck my luggage and a go through security? I'm flying Delta and with a J1 visa. Thanks in advance.
Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.
We have 1 hr 42 minute layover. Coming from Cancun to catch connection to Cincinnati early on a Sunday morning. Is this enough time?
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
