  • do i hav etime to connect to my Dubai flight 9:47pm
    Oct 30, 2014
    I will be arriving from Tampa Fl at 8:22 pm to connect to Dubai flight departing 9:47 pm. Where do I go to make the conection?


    You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All concourses are connected inside security by security.


  • Enough time to connect?
    Nov 6, 2014
    We arrive in ATL from GSO at 6:13 pm on Delta 1466 (Concourse A). Our connecting flight to MEX (also with Delta) departs at 7:01 om from Concourse E. Will we make it? I called Delta and thay said it is a "legal connection".


    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to Concourse E.


    Unless your incoming flight is late. Delta likes to decrease travel times by allowing short layovers, but a lot of their flights are late. I was once in a plane waiting on the tarmac for a gate in Atlanta when my connecting flight left, so I don't trust layovers of less than an hour in ATL anymore.

    Hi, I'm flying to Dubai via ATL on 10/31. I'm scheduled to arrive in ATL at 8:58 pm. My flight to Dubai departs at 9:47. Is there enough time to make this connection?


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is domestic. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E/F where your Dubai flight will depart.


  • British Air to Delta
    Oct 27, 2014
    I will be arriving on a Sat. night at 7:30 PM from London on British Air in business class. I have global entry. I want to catch a Delta flight at 9:45 pm to Minneapolis. It would be on a separate ticket and I understand that British Air will not check baggage all the way to Mpls because Delta is not a partner. I can check in for Delta flight with my phone so I would have boarding pass. Do I have time for this connection? Do I have to take my bags on the shuttle to main terminal? Is there a way to drop bags at Delta recheck counter and take the plane train?


    I believe you will have to take the shuttle to the Domestic terminal to re-check your bags. However, one thing worth investigating is getting your bags checked through to MSP by British Airways. BA and Delta DO have an interline baggage agreement, so the agent in London should be able to check your bags through if you show your Delta confirmation. However, he or she is not obligated to do so if you purchased separate itineraries. If your bags are tagged to MSP then you can use the re-check counter and proceed directly to security and the plane train.


  • Connection from CUN to SFO
    Oct 25, 2014
    My wife and I will land on 11/5 at 5:13pm from Cancun with a 1hr 45min layover before departing for SFO. Both flights are on Delta. Will we have enough time and do we have to travel between concourses? Thanks!


    Yes, you should have enough time. You will arrive in concourse E or F where you will go to the lower level, clear US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags with Delta, then you will go through security and take the Plane Train to your departure concourse.


  • Delta connect with lay over 1hr25
    Oct 24, 2014
    Hi, I will fly in from Mexico on Delta at 2125hrs. Then I have 1hr25 to connect to my Delta flight to Nashville. Only carry on. Will this be enough time to make it (going through customs etc)?? Thanks!


    Yes, it should be enough time.


  • connecting a southwest to an airtran flight
    Nov 6, 2014
    We will be arriving in ATL at 5:55pm on a tuesday (southwest flight) and connecting to an AirTran flight that leaves at 6:30pm. Will that be enough time to make the connecting flight?


    Yes, all Southwest and AirTran flights are on the same concourse.


    Again, this depends on whether your incoming flight is on time.....


  • 1hr 30 minute connection
    Oct 23, 2014
    Hi, we will be arriving at ATL from MAN on a Virgin flight, with a 1 hour 30 minute stop before our next flight to TPA with Delta. Will this be enough time? Will we have to collect and re-check luggage at ATL? The flights were booked as a package with Virgin. Thanks!


    Yes, you will arrive in Concourse E or F, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then you will go through security and take the plane train to your departure concourse. You should have enough time.


  • 45 minute layover.
    Oct 21, 2014
    Hi, i am looking to book a flight and my return journey gives me a 45 minute layover in ATL. It's a Delta flight coming in from SAN with a 45 minute layover in ATL then back to London. Will the 45 minutes be enough and also I will have checked in luggage at SAN. Any help much appreciated. Thanks!


    You will check your baggage in SAN and won't see it again until you get to London. Yes, 45 minutes should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. the Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.


  • 1h45 international connection
    Oct 20, 2014
    Hi, I'm looking to book a flight from London to ATL to a US Delta connection. I have 1h45mins from arrival, thru immigration, customs, re-check bags and get to the new gate. Is that possible? It is a combined ticket Virgin/Delta if that makes any difference. All with a toddler.


    Yes, that is possible. You have the procedure correct.


  • Connection from Atlanta to Chicago
    Oct 19, 2014
    Hi! I will be flying out of Mobile,AL and landing in Atlanta,GA with a 45 minute layover until my next flight to Chicago. Do you think that will be enough time to catch my flight and will they make my connection flight in the same concourse as my flight that lands from Mobile?


    Yes, that should be enough time. Your flights will likely be on different concourses but there is a chance they will be on the same concourse. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.


  • International flight to domestic flight - 1 h 39 min layover
    Oct 19, 2014
    Hello, My KLM flight from Amsterdam will arrive at ATL at terminal F on a Friday evening at 8:20 pm. I need to get my connecting flight at 11:59 pm to Miami from terminal B operarting by Delta. I have 1 h 39 min layover time and I have NO checked luggage. How much time will I need to get from terminal F to terminal B and what is the best and fastest way to get from terminal F to terminal B. Since this is the last connection flight to Miami that day, I really do not want to miss it. Thanks for your help!


    B is a concourse, not a terminal. After you go through US Immigration you will then go through US Customs, then follow the signs for connecting passengers, you will go through security, then take the Plane Train to your departure concourse (check monitors for your departure concourse, it can change). Immigration lines should be short that late in the evening and getting to your departure concourse should take less than 10 minutes.


    Sorry, the flight to Miami is leaving at 9:59 pm instead of 11:59 pm from Atlanta. Is there still enough time to get that flight? 1 h 39 min layover time. Thanks!


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • Southwest to ATL then International Flight
    Oct 18, 2014
    Since I could not order code-shared flight or single-itinerary flight from PHL to ATL, i ordered a ticket by SOuthwest from PHL to ATL. Does that mean I will get my luggage, go to international terminal and do the check in and luggage and security screening all over again? And can I go on the connecting airtrain that connects international and domestic, or I will have to wait for a shuttle?


    Since you will have to re-check your bags, you will have to take the shuttle. You will need at least 2 hours for your transfer.


  • Travelling Monterrey to London via Atlanta with small child
    Oct 17, 2014
    Hi there, planning on booking a flight with Virgin that will arrive in Atlanta from Monterrey (Mexico) at 8.15pm and leave for London at 10.09pm - just under 2 hours layover. Am travelling with a small child (under 2 yrs) and will have to collect luggage, do you think this is enough time to catch next flight? Thanks


    Yes, that should be enough time. You can re-check your bags immediately after you clear customs and then you will go through security and right back to the departure gate area which will be in the same area where your flight from Monterrey arrives.


    Thanks for your response. Think i will gamble it. Many thanks

    Hi. I will take a flight from Managua to Paris with a transfer in Atlanta. My flight plan gives me 2 hours to make the transfer. is that enough? Thank you


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will have to go through US Immigration and Customs, but both of your flights will be in Concourse E/F.


    thank you! From paris to managua (Air France/Delta) do you think that i have to re-check the bagages in Atlanta?
