  • 1h 30 mins enough time for change between TI and TS
    Dec 9, 2014
    Hey, got a flight from Cancún that arrives in Atlanta for a change over to New York. I have 1h 30 mins to change terminals, from I to S... is that enough time?? How do you get between the two ? And do you need to go through passport control again? I won't be having any luggage other than hand luggage. Thank youuuuu


    You will arrive in the E or F gates, go through US Immigration and customs, then go through security and take the Plane Train to your departure concourse and gate. You don't actually have to go to the domestic "S" terminal.


    It should be OK. One thing that can help is US CBP's Mobile Passport Control program to get through customs faster. Here's the link:


  • Layover in ALT for 46 min
    Dec 3, 2014
    Delta changed my flight from a one hour and a half layover in Minnesota to a 46 min one in Atlanta. I am flying from San Diego to Atlanta to Norfolk, VA and I am worried if I will have enough time to make the last fight (it is the last flight for the day) my flight is DL2267 and DL2095. Will I be able to make it to my last flight or should I try to reschedule?


    It is enough time if your flight is on-time but doesn't leave much time for delays.


  • 49 minutes enought time ATL-LIMA, Peru
    Dec 1, 2014
    Hi, Just found out Delta changed our layover in Atlanta from 1,25 to 49 minutes. There is only one flight for Lima, Peru per day. If we miss this flight our vacation of a lifetime will be ruined. Delta refused to change our flight to ATL on an earlier flight without a cost of $200/pp. I had booked in good faith with Delta and didn't expect a 36 min. delay. Any suggestions?


    Hang up and call again. Delta is obligated to rebook you because of the involuntary schedule change. Use those words.


    That's exactly what my husband did, but at the Platinum Elite #. He was a Platinum member for many years, but not anymore. Though he's a million miler. Delta said, yes sir we will take care of it! Thanks for the post and encouragement!


  • International v. Domestic Arrivals
    Nov 28, 2014
    My sister is flying from El Salvador to Atlanta. She has a connecting flight in Miami. I am uncertain about where to pick her up as it's an international flight. However, she will go through customs and board a different plane in Miami which makes me wonder if she should be picked up at the domestic terminal. Thanks in advance!


    If she is flying American, which if she is connecting in Miami she probably is, you will pick her up at the domestic terminal,


    Thank you so much!! :)


  • short connection from Montreal
    Nov 28, 2014
    Hi, i have a flight from Montreal to Rio de Janeiro with a stop in Atlanta. My connection between the flight is 1h20. Do i have enough time to make it? Do i need to pick up my luggage and go to the custom? THanks


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Atlanta is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • connecting terminals?
    Nov 10, 2015
    never been to atl before. The terminals are all separate buildings apparently. is the plane train the only way to get from,one terminal to the other? or is there also some kind of walkway connecting them?


    Those are concourses, not terminals. There is a walkway in the same tunnel as the plane train, but it's much faster to take the plane train, unless you feel like sprinting between concourses.


    I personally don't mind sprinting haha.

  • Connecting flight from AMS
    Nov 22, 2014

  • Orlando to atl to Austin tx
    Nov 19, 2014
    I arrive in Atl at 9:05 to connect to a delta flight to Austin texas at 9:50 will I make it?


    For added detail I arrive in Atl on flight #1618 catching flight # 1118 to austin both Delta


    Yes that is enough time but doesn't leave much time to spare in case of delays. The plane train connects all concourses inside security.

    My wife and I will be traveling from Huntsville, AL to Montego Bay, Jamaica on Delta Airlines with a connection in Atlanta. This is our first time to fly internationally. Do we have to re-check our checked bag once we get to Atlanta or will it be checked all the way through to Montego Bay from Huntsville?


    On your way to Jamaica you don't have to do anything with your bags, just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. On your way back you will have to claim them to go through customs then re-check them at the transfer desk.

    Hi, I will be landing at ATL from BRU flight DL 2334 on januari 15 and connect to Fort Lauderdale flight DL 476 both Delta. Do I need to re-incheck my baggage as well? Thanks.


    Yes. You will go through US immigration, claim your bags, go through customs then re-check your bags at the transfer desk then go through security and take the Plane Train to your departure concourse .


    Thanks for your answer. Could you also tell me what a concourse is or what the difference it is whit a terminal and how many stops I need to calculate for getting of the Plane train to catch my flight to Fort Lauderdale on DL 476? Thanks again.


    You will arrive in E or F and likely depart from A, B, or C. Plane train shouldn't take more than 10 minutes.


  • Transfer time
    Nov 16, 2014
    Hi, I am flying into Atlanta (Virgin) from UK and land at 14.05pm and then need a connecting to flight to Memphis (Delta), which is the best flight to choose to allow me enough time the 16.10pm flight or 17.30 flight? Thanks


    As you arrive at ATL at non-rush hour, you may opt for the 16.10pm flight. Note that Virgin & Delta do not belong to the same airline alliance: unless you purchased your flights on one ticket, you may need on arrival pick up your bags & re-check them in with Delta (find out from Virgin if they transfer). At ATL you need to go through passport check, pick up bag, go through customs clearance & re-check-in your bag where indicated (unless you need to take your bags & check-in with Delta). Virgin arrives at the new International Maynard Terminal, while Delta uses any of the Domestic concourses /gates A - D (the overhead screens on arrivals will indicate flight & gate numbers. Proceed after customs clearance & re-check-in, follow signs to the 'Plane Train' serving all concourses in the center of their gate arrangements.

    Flying in from TUS (Tuscon) to ATL on 1 Hour 14 M enough of a layover to make it to the Int'l Terminal F to catch a flight from ATL to CDG (Paris) on either Delta or Air France? Are the Delta terminals close to or far away from Int'l Terminal F? Thanks!


    You don't actually have to change terminals. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse (E or F). It should take less than 20 minutes.


  • from Amsterdam via Atlanta to Puerto Rico
    Nov 10, 2014
    will have a flight on Sat, Nov, 15th from AMS, flight DL0073, ar. ATL 02.12 p.m, departure to San Jose with DL 0525, dep. 04:55 p.m. Have to clear our baggage before we take the flight to Puerto Rico and how can we change terminals. We are from Gemany


    You don't have to change terminals. You will arrive in concourse E/F, go through US Immigration in the lower level of E, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and take the plane train to your departure concourse. You have plenty of time.
