  • is 55 minutes enough?
    Feb 26, 2015
    1
    Im considering buying a ticket that will have me arrive from Austin, TX on DL1858 at 3:25 and leave on DL82 for Paris on 4:20. Will 55 minutes be enough? I might have to clear customs or?

     

    You will not clear customs. You do not go through US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where your Paris flight will depart. That should be enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

  • CAN I MAKE MY FLIGHT?

    I have a Delta Flight from boston arriving in Atlanta at 9:31pm , with a connecting Delta INTERNATIONAL flight to Brazil at 10:25pm!! I have two small children(2 & 4) but we can/do move swiftly. can we make this flight? will our luggage, I am concerned because I am checking car seats. I think gate checking them may make it more difficult to make connection(dragging them, kids etc). Will I need to clear security again? Thanks for any insights & assistance!

     

    No, you will not have to clear security. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse (E or F) and board the plane. If your first flight is on-time you should have enough time.

     

  • Enough time and distance to smoke and let dog out to potty

    I will be coming from overseas and have a 2hr and 4min layover before my connecting flight in US. I know I need to get through immigration and customs, however, I will have my little dog with me in cabin and am wondering if I will have enough time to get her out to go potty and back to my gate.

     

    No, the dog relief areas are located outside the domestic terminal, so you probably won't have time to do that.

    We will be arriving in Atlanta at 9:02 am on March 4 with a 9:30 am connecting flight to San Juan. Is the gate where we board to San Juan close so we don't miss our connecting flight

     

    What airlines are you flying?

     

    Delta 1069- to Atlanta 559 to SanJuan

     

    It will be difficult. Delta uses close to 100 different gates at ATL. They're all connected inside security, but they can be far apart. If your first flight is on-time you might barely have enough time.

     

    I was afraid of that is there any way I could find out for sure?

     

    You won't know your exact gates until the day of your flight. They could be in Concourse T, A, B, or C. However, also note that Delta has 3 more flights to San Juan that day that you can be rebooked on if you miss your connection, including one under two hours later at 11:25. Also note that DL 559 leaves at 9:40, not 9:30.

     

    Thank you

    I am arriving from Miami on a Delta flight arriving at 7:50pm and have a BA flight from Atlanta to London leaving at 21:55. is this enough time to make the connection, and what is the distance between terminals?

     

    Did you buy two separate tickets or your tickets together? Will you have checked baggage? I can't answer this question unless I know that.

    We are arriving 11/6 -2015 from Amsterdam with KL6075 and we are landing at terminal I . We have 2 h to get plain KL5356 to Orlando from terminal S. Please give us information to get there as fast as possible

     

    Note that both flights are operated by Delta. You will arrive in concourse E/F, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and take the Plane Train to your departure concourse. You should have enough time.

     

    Thanks :-) Pleas can you also tell us if it's a gate for faster transfer With child , 8 years ?

     

    No, you don't get to cut the line because you have a child with you.

    arriving on delta and transfering to another delta flight is 45 mins enough time?

     

    Yes, you just have to take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse, but it leaves no time to spare in case your first flight is delayed.

    According to the Airline Ticket ( We are arriving in at ATL with a 43 min layover to catch an international flight) Terminal S to Terminal I --- is that enough time.

     

    You don't actually have to change terminals, you just have to take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E/F where your International flight will depart. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

  • Enough Layover?

    Hello. I bought a ticket from Costa Rica to Roanoke with layover in Atlanta of 1 hour 49 minutes. Will this be enough time to catch the second plane? Do I need to run? Oh, and its on a tuesday. Thank you!

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

     

    No Way. We just came from Costa Rica to Detroit thru Atlanta. We had 1 hour 40 minutes to clear customs. Unorganized, unmotivated customs agents. They all knew we were late for our connections. And after the crushing wait in line, they were super rude to me and my three kids. It was amazing. Delta "connection specialist" was rude and inaccurate and sent us to the wrong place, and we missed our flight by seconds. It was a hassle, it was stressful, and I'll never land in Atlanta again. We checked this blog and read the posts about the easy Atlanta connection, and it was a disappointing night last night. Next time we'll go thru Houston or try the direct flight thru Charlotte.

    Hi. I bought a ticket from Mexico to Madrid with layover in Atlanta of 1 hour 49 minutes. Will this be enough time to catch the last plane? Thank you

     

    Yes, that should barely be enough time. You will arrive in concourse E/F, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, and then go through security and to your departure gate, in the same concourses.

     

    probably not. we had 90 minutes last night and it took more than 60, just to get through immigration. Then grab bags and through customs, 5 minutes, recheck bag, 2 minutes, then go through security again, about 300 people through a single security line. another 20 minutes, down to the train, 2 minutes, over to B terminal, 3 minutes, up to B, ran to gate 34...end of the building of course...arrive at landing + 90 minutes and gate was closed even with 'final boarding' still showing on sign. us, along with 20 others were closed out and had to stay in Atlanta overnigjt. Delta is evil.

     

  • Terminal I to Terminal S

    Flying in from Montreal, Canada into Terminal I and I would then need to head over to Terminal S for a domestic US flight (both are Delta flights). There's a 1 hour 10 min layover. Is this enough time to get to the next terminal?

     

    You don't actually have to change terminals. You just have to take the plane train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse. All concourses are connected inside security by the plane train. You have plenty of time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal.

    I arrive from SD at gate can how long will it take to get to gate E12 tfor flight 837 to Honolulu?

     

    I arrive from Louisville on delta flight 866 to concourse C, I have 42 minutes to catch flight 837 to Honolulu from E concourse. Do I have ample time?

     

    That should barely be enough time. You just have to take the Plane Train from concourse C to Concourse E. However, it doesn't leave much time if your first flight is delayed.
