We are flying from Paris to Liberia via Atlanta. Is 2h29 enough to get on our second flight? I am a Russian citizen (with active USA touristic visa), are there 2 different queues on US immigration control depending on travelers origin just like it is in Chicago? Thanks
Yes, there are two different lines. Yes, that should be enough time if the flight from Paris is on-time.
Hi I am thinking of flying From Sarasota to Atlanta with a 41 minute layover to Columbia SC on Delta. I am wondering if I will have sufficient time to make the second flight. Any knowledge would be greatly appreciated!
It's enough time but leaves absolutely no time to spare if the flight from Sarasota arrives late.
We are flying Southwest, with a 3hr 20min layover in Atlanta before our flight to Columbus departs. Will we have enough time to go through customs, re-check our bags, go through security and make it to our connecting flight on time?
I'm flying in from Manchester UK (virgin) and traveling on to Jackson WY with Delta we have 1:45mins is thus enough time?. Also the only checked baggage is oversize (snowboard bags). What do we have to with these?
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. Oversize bags will just be on a different baggage claim but are otherwise treated the same. You have barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Last year we flew from the Cayman Islands to Detroit via ATL. We had a rough time getting through security after customs and immigration and made our flight with 10 seconds to spare. This year we booked the same flight, and were assured that wasn't the norm. However my parents came through ATL from Barbados tonight and were in customs/immigration/security for 2.5 HOURS. We will have two small kids along, and waiting that long will be beyond miserable with them, not to mention we only have 1 hour and 45 minutes to make our flight to Detroit. Everything is booked, or I would just change our flight right now. Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks in advance!
There's not much you can do, just hope for the best.
