    Hi Flying to Orlando from London Heathrow on 23rd December, land at ATL at 7:55pm must catch a domestic flight at 9:59pm to MCO Is that going to be enough time? Do we have to check our bags again and if the first flight is delayed will thy put us on the 11:20pm to MCO. Thanks

     

    Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security and to your departure gate via the Plane Train. You should have enough time. If your flight from London is late and you miss your connection they will put you on the later flight to Orlando if there are seats available.

    ALl flights booked through Delta and on Delta. I fly from Seattle to Atlanta, arriving around 7:30 am. I have 45 minutes to connect to St Maarten flight. Will this be enough time?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All concourses are connected inside security by the plane train.

    Do you have to claim your luggage if you have a flight connection in Atlanta that comes from Toronto and goes to South America?

     

    If both tickets are on the same reservation, no. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    My wife and I traveling from DTW to Grenada connecting through ATL. On the way we have 1 hr 23min layover but out documents say "Check in with Delta", do we have to get our luggage then recheck in? Is 1h 23min long enough? On the return flight we have the same "Check in with Delta" so I assume once we clear Customs we get our baggage and recheck in with Delta? I assume 2 hr and 15mins is long enough.

     

    On your way to Grenada you don't have to do anything in Atlanta other than go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Your bags will be checked through to Grenada and you will be issued both boarding passes in Detroit. On the return in Atlanta, you will arrive in the E or F concourse, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, right after customs, then go through security and to your departure gate. the "Check in with Delta" refers to what counter you should go to in the FIRST city of your trip to check your bags. This is because they sometimes sell codeshare flights that are operated by other airlines. In those cases you have to check in with the other airline. You have enough time for both connections.

    I am flying from Toronto in a Delta airline and have a connection to South America in another Delta airline, the connection time is 1 h and half. I was wondering if the time is ok and how would I go in finding my gate. sorry is the first time.

     

    Your flight will depart from the E or F concourse (likely F) there will be monitors with the exact gate or you could check delta.com or the delta app. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto so all you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. You have enough time.

    I will be arriving Atlanta from Stuttgart, Germany on Delta. I have a connecting flight to Phila on Delta. Will my luggage be checked all the way thru and what will I need to do in Atlanta customs wise?

     

    In Atlanta you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through customs, re-check your bags at the recheck desk then go through security and take the Plane Train to your departure concourse.

    Flying Rome-Dallas connecting in ATL with Delta, on 26 December (landing 5.30pm), with checked baggage. 100 minute connection time. I assume this is potentially tight, even if the flight from Rome is on time. My question is, with Skyteam Elite Plus status (Alitalia Freccia Alata, i.e. gold status) is there any sort of priority lane I can use at any stage (for re-checking bags, for clearing security after this)? Thanks!

     

    Yes that should be enough time. Yes I believe you will get priority security.

     

    Thanks for reassuring me!

    Hi. My son is flying into Atlanta tomorrow morning and only has 49 minutes to get his connection to Charlotte. Is that enough to time? Are the gates close to each other? Should he let the flight attendant know? Thank you.

     

    Where is he flying to Atlanta from? What airlines is he flying? I can't answer your question without that information? There's nothing the flight attendant would be able to do.

     

    Flying from Ft Myers, Fl. Is it possible to get gate OT terminal numbers?

     

    What airline? If it's Delta then he won't know the gates until the day of his flight. Delta operates flights out of every concourse in Atlanta, but all gates are connected inside security by the plane train and you can reach any gate from any gate in 15 minutes or less.

    I am flying to JFK via Atl from Johannesburg - all with Delta. Will a 2 and a half hour layover be enough time to catch my connecting flight? I land at Terminal I and need to get to Terminal S. Will I have sufficient time to get through US Immigration, claim my bags, go through US Customs, re-check my bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and take the plane train to my departure concourse. How would I know which plane train and which concourse as well, please?

     

    Arrive in ATL on 20 Dec at 5:51 am

     

    Yes, that is plenty of time. After you clear customs you can find out your departure concourse and gate from the Monitors. There is only one Plane Train.

    Im flying from Toronto to Belize City with a 70 minute layover in Atlanta with Delta airlines. Is 70 minutes enough to clear customs? Will I need to claim my bag and resubmit it? Should I look for a different connecting flight? Thanks

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto and there is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses and gates inside security. You should have plenty of time.

     

  • Connection time with plane side checked luggage

    My daughter is flying from Montgomery AL to Seattle. She has a 37 minute layover in ATL. Is this enough time given that her bag will be checked plane side in MGM and she will need to wait for it plane side in ATL before proceeding to her next gate?

     

    It doesn't leave much time to spare. Although Delta is usually pretty good about getting the planeside bags out quickly, especially now that they fly fewer planes that require planeside checking.

    I'm flying in on Delta from Albuquerque and flying to Charles de Gaulle on Air France. Is 1 hour enough time to make the tranfer?

     

    Yes, you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Atlanta. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security in Atlanta. You will depart from concourse E or F.
