    Looking at a flight from Guatemala to Europe with 1h45min layover time (same ticket). Is that enough time, to get my connection flight to Europe? Thanks!

     

    It's possible if everything goes smoothly.

    Assuming my flight arrives on time to AtL, is 47 enough time from domestic to international terminal to Bogota?

     

    Yes, but it obviously leaves practically no time to spare if there are delays.

    Would be traveling with 2 children. (12 and 9) is this doable with a 37 minute layover.

     

    It's possible but leaves no time to spare if there are any delays. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

     

    I am not familiar with ATL so what does your reply mean, please.

     

    ATL has 7 concourses (gate hallways), all laid out in a row. They are all connected in the middle by an underground train called the plane train. You can go from one concourse to the other using the plane train without having to go through security again. Delta uses all 7 concourses, but 2 of them are mostly used for international flights and 1 is mostly used for small plane flights, so there are really just 4 that you'd have to possibly use (T, A, B, or C). It is possible to go from one gate to another in 37 minutes, but it depends on the first flight arriving on-time or preferably early in order to make it. I personally would not book such a connection.

    Hi, I am looking at a flight from London Heathrow transferring in Atlanta and then connecting to a flight to Guadlajara Mexico. Transfer time is 1 hour 40 minutes. All booked on one ticket. Is this sufficient time?

     

    It's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly. You will arrive, 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.

    I am thinking of taking Delta from Bos to Key West. I have 1 hour between flights. Is this enough time and will my connection be in the same terminal? Thanks

     

    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. ATL has 7 concourses, all of which are connected inside security by the Plane Train.

    I am flying into ATL from Munich and then on to CLT. I will have 30 students with me, and we have decided it would be faster to have a bus collect us from ATL than CLT....I assume we will collect our luggage, go through customs, and can just leave? I want to be sure we will be getting our luggage and can leave. Our entire journey is with Delta. I want to be sure our luggage will not go on to CLT.

     

    You will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs, after which you will have to proceed to the terminal Exit.

    Hello - my son is arriving from CDG into F terminal then connecting to a domestic flight an hour later. The terminal he is leaving from isn't listed yet, but the same flight yesterday left from B terminal. Will he have time? He has a carry-on bag. I realize 1 hour doesn't seem like enough time - any suggestions on how to streamline and save time? He is young and can hustle! :)

     

    1 hour is not enough time for an International to Domestic connection in Atlanta. However, if his flight arrives early and since he has no checked baggage, I wouldn't say it's completely impossible.

     

    Thank you for the feedback. I guess it's worth a try! Would he take the plane train after going through customs? Is that quicker?

     

    Yes, that's the fastest way between concourses.

    Hi I am flying Delta into TS at Atlanta and connecting to Toronto in T1 on Delta. Wondering how I change terminals. I have 2.5 hours. Thanks

     

    You don't have to change terminals. You just take the plane train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse. You have plenty of time.

    Hi, we are travelling from amsterdam changing planes at atlanta then carrying on to orlando all booked on KLM operated by Delta we only have one and half hours to make the connection is this enough time ? we were told our cases would be transferred right through to Orlando but reading other comments i am now not so sure ?

     

    In Atlanta you will arrive in the E/F concourse, 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 take the plane train to your departure concourse and gate. You have just enough if everything goes smoothly, but Delta has hourly flights from Atlanta to Orlando if you miss your connection.

     

    thank you for taking the time to respond :) you have been a great help

    I'm flying in with children to atl from nc than reloading to Cancun Mexico. My questions all flights are delta are we going to have to transport our luggage at any point going or returning thru terminals? Thanks

     

    You should be fine! I am from Atlanta, so I am not sure about the return connection. Going you will just transfer to your new flight and your bags will go on to Cancun. When you return, you will go back through security, customs then possibly (this is the part I don't recall) get your bags and recheck them. The recheck place is right there, so you won't be lugging them throughout the airport. Have fun! We are heading to Cancun in April with our 2 children. We splurged for global entry and it has been wonderful!

     

    Yes, on your way to Cancun you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. On your way back you will 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 gate.

    I am arriving from Heathrow at 4.05pm on July 2nd and have a connecting fight to Kansas City departing at 5.45pm. Is 1hour 40 minutes enough time?

     

    That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    What's the minimum connection time needed between flights - assuming the gates are far apart?

     

    Assuming the first flight is domestic, I would recommend no less than 45 minutes.

    Flying in from the Bahamas to ATL then onto Uk. Do I have to reclaim bags or do they go straight through? Looks like 2 hour between flights

     

    Where in the Bahamas are you coming from? If you are coming from Freeport or Nassau you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Freeport or Nassau. If you are coming from Georgetown or Marsh Harbour then you will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs. Either way you should have enough time.

    Travelling Louisville - Atlanta - Johannesburg on Delta Arrive 18:30, Depart 20:29. Do I need to collect luggage and clear security in Atlanta? Is there enough time to get from Terminal I to S

     

    You don't have to change terminals. All you have to do on your way to Johannesburg in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in concourse E or F. The plane train connects all concourses inside security. You have plenty of time.

    Hi, I arrive from DFW to ATL at 4:38pm with Delta, and then fly to London Heathrow with Virgin which leaves at 5:45pm. Is the 1hr7min layover enough time? And will i have to collect baggage etc? It was all booked as one booking

     

    No you don't have to do anything with your baggage. You just have to take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart. You have enough time.
