Hi. I will be traveling from Jamaica, connecting at ATL to Amsterdam. How do I navigate myself around. Which gate will I be connecting. How do I get mt bags before connecting? Thank you
You will arrive in Concourse E or F, go through US Immigration, claim your bags (it will be right after), then go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate, which will be in the same building you arrived in.
I am about to book flight from London Heathrow with Virgin Atlantic which will stop in Atlanta and then onward flight booked at the same time as a "through ticket" onto Montego Bay, Jamaica. Do I have to collect bags, go through customs and then drop bags and go through security? If so, I presume the 1hr 17mins time between flights will not be enough??? Advise please
Yes, you 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. That is a very difficult connection, bordering on impossible.
I arrive in the south terminal at 10:59 and have an international flight leaving at 12:02. Is that enough time? I think I check my bags at my first departure airport all the way thru.
If your bags are checked all the way though then you just have to take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where your international flight will depart. You have enough time.
I land in ATL from the UK and have 2 hours to connect to Gainsville with Delta. Will I have to collect and recheck my bags and do I have enough time to do this?! Any advice on what I will need to do to get from my international flight to connecting flight would be much appreciated. Thank you.
Yes, you will arrive in concourse E or F, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, go through security and take the plane train to your departure concourse and walk to your departure gate. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
3 adults with 2 kids - is this enough time to get from A6 to C34? I am guessing on gates. looking at current gate selections for flight # and time. Flights are not until Nov 6th but will cost to change them now for longer layover.
The gates are definitely subject to change. You won't know the exact gates until the day of your flight. Yes that is enough time. A and C aren't terminals, they're just concourses. All concourses are connected inside security by the Plane Train.
