  • AMS - ATL - MIA
    Apr 6, 2016
    I am flying Amsterdam to Atlanta and arrive 20.20. My connecting Delta flight leaves 22.05. We do not have checked luggage. Will we have enough time?


    These are 2 separate tickets by the way..


    That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly. Immigration shouldn't be crowded that late in the evening and not having checked bags definitely helps.


  • Connecting flights UK- ATL- Cancun
    Apr 6, 2016
    Hello, I'm flying from the UK to Atlanta with Virgin Atlantic arriving Terminal 1 at 1510 then flying from Atlanta to Cancun departing T1 at 1700. I have checked baggage but because the second flight is also Virgin Atlantic, flown by Delta Air Lines, will this be enough time for me to get my second flight? Also are there any other considerations I need to take into account? For example I have applied for my ESTA on the Visa Waiver Programme but is there anything else? Thanks for any help!


    There is no terminal 1. You will arrive in the E/F gates, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate, also in E or F. You don't need to do anything else. You should have just enough time.


  • Connection from domestic to international
    Apr 6, 2016
    Hello i arrive from Minneapolis at 6.27 pm and have flight to UK at 7.10 pm, i have checked baggage. Will i make it if on time? What will happen to my checked baggage if i dont make it?


    That is enough time if your flight from MSP is on-time. All you have to do is take the plane train from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you miss your connection your bags will either be waiting in London for you or will be put on the flight you are rebooked on.


  • how to connect flights
    Apr 6, 2016
    I'm flying Saturday 9 arriving in Atlanta on flight Delta 869 from San Antonio at 9:15 am, terminal S, and I need to connect to the flight United 5360 departing 10:00 am to Chicago on terminal N. How close are these terminals? and canI do the connection by walking or should be by transportation?


    If you have checked bags you won't be able to make this. If you don't have checked bags you just take the plane train from your arrival concourse (likely A, B, or C) to concourse T where your United gate will depart. You also need to check in online for your United flight before you leave San Antonio. You have barely enough time if your flight from San Antonio is on-time.




  • ATL: Terminal S
    Apr 5, 2016
    Where is Terminal S at the Atlanta airport? I don't see it on the map.


    It is the Delta domestic check-in area. If you're only connecting in Atlanta you don't have to go there. Delta includes it on all their reservations even though on connections it's completely irrelevant.


  • Connection time
    Apr 5, 2016
    I am flying from Fort Lauderdale to Amsterdam with a 58 min layover in Atlanta. I arrive in Atlanta at Terminal S at 4:42pm and depart to Amsterdam at Terminal I at 5:40pm. Is enough time for transfer between Terminals?


    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.


  • connection time

    Hi I am arriving international from london and at 16.05 and have flight to pensacola with delta at 17.36 Will this be enough time to clear immigration and make the flights am traveling with 2 toddlers


    It's above the minimum but it's not practically possible unless your flight from London arrives early.


    Virgin have told me that they allow 60 mins for connection from internatinal to domestic. How long do you think is needed please


    That is incorrect and impossible. The minimum in Atlanta is 90 minutes, with 2 hours recommended.


    All Southwest flights I've researched have a 35 min time between connecting flights. This seems unreasonable ? Should I book a different airlines?


  • Question - Connecting Flight
    Apr 4, 2016
    I am flying from Akron/Canton to Pensacola with a 38 minute layover in ATL, will I have enough time? And also, will I need to go through security again?


    It's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. You will not have to go through security again.


  • flying through Atlanta
    Apr 4, 2016
    I am flying in from London to Atlanta international on British Air and have a 1hr 40min flight connection to Miami with Delta. I an not sure if this is enough time to clear immigration … luggage and transfer to other terminal before check in closes


    No, that would be completely impossible with checked baggage. If you do carry-on only and check in for your Delta flight before you leave London, you might barely have enough time.


  • 38 minute layover
    Apr 4, 2016
    I am flying from orlando to Las Vegas with a family of 5. We have a 38 connection with delta. Will that be enough time for us? and luggage?


    It's possible but obviously leaves no time to spare if the flight from Orlando is delayed.


    Do you know what Delta policy is on missed connections? Do they charge you the current fare of the next flight if the price is higher? Or just bump you to the next flight regardless of the price?


    They will just put you on the next available flight - no fee.


  • Flying to Paris, is my layover long enough?
    Apr 2, 2016
    I am flying from Tampa to Paris with a 1 hr 20 min layover in Atlanta. I arrive in Atlanta at Terminal S at 7:25pm and depart for Paris at Terminal I at 8:45. My seat on that first leg is, unfortunately, near the back of the plane. Is 1hr, 20 minutes enough time?


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.


  • International arrival with Delta connection to Orlando
    Mar 31, 2016
    I am arriving from London and have a connection to Orlando via Delta. Is two hours enough? I am by myself.


    The connection flight is from the domestic terminal. What concourse is that?


    Delta domestic flights can depart from concourse T, A, B, C, or D. You should have just enough time.


  • Delta Layover
    Mar 31, 2016
    I am looking at a 52 min layover and plane change with Delta. I am flying with my toddler and just want to be sure that I will have enough time to make my connection. Is this possible and with both flights being Delta will I need to travel from one Concourse to another?


    Yes, that should be enough time. Yes, it's more likely than not that you will have to change concourses.


  • southwest
    Mar 31, 2016
    I am coming to ATL on Southwest, from Punta Cana, then after changing plane going to Chicago. I have a 3 hour layover, is that enough time? I am a US citizen.


    I do have checked bags.


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • connection within terminal T
    Mar 28, 2016
    Will I make a connection in terminal t between 2 different airlines in 1/2 hour?


    T is a concourse. If the first flight is on-time and you have no checked bags it's possible. I personally wouldn't try it. Also, if one of your flights is on Delta there's no guarantee it will actually operate from T.
