Hello. My parents are flying to Kabul. They fly out from Atlanta and have a connecting flight in Boston. Then they fly to Istanbul and finally land in Kabul.

My question is do they arrive at the international terminal or domestic in Atlanta? The ticket says Terminal N but I'm not sure which one that is.
Also, do they check their bags in at Atlanta or Boston?
Since their first flight is domestic they use the domestic terminal, specifically the North side (thus the N). They won't see their bags until they get to Kabul if everything is on the same reservation. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.
My flight is from Charlotte NC to Orlando FL on August 25 (tomorrow at 6am). I arrive at gate E37 and have a connection flight at B25. Layover is 44 minutes. Will I make it on time?
That is possible. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.
Hi, I am flying into Atlanta airport with Virgin Atlantic and have 1 hour 25 minutes until my connecting flight with Delta (to Savannah). I had a friend travel to Atlanta airport recently to fly on to Mexico and she said immigration took over 2 hours. This now has me worried that I will not have time to reach my connecting flight. Any advice/suggestions?
Yes, that is correct. You do NOT have enough time. You need a minimum of 2 hours to make your connection. Contact whoever booked your ticket and tell them that your connection is too short.
I'm connecting in Atlanta and have 47 minutes to get from D16 to A26 (Delta domestic, south terminal) Do you think I have time?
thanks, LS
That is just enough time if the first flight is on-time. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.
We are flying from Quito (UIO) to Detroit (DTW) via Atlanta(ATL) on Delta on British passports.
How long do we need between flights
I recommend at least 2 hours.
How do I get my luggage from a Delta flight landing at Concourse B; and then get to Concourse C for Southwest Airlines Flight # 189 to Austin, Texas? Thank you.
You have to go to the domestic terminal, claim your bags, walk them over to Southwest, re-check them, then go back through security and take the Plane Train to concourse C. You need at least 2 hours.
Hello there,

we are travelling from Aruba to Amsterdam through Atlanta and we have 2hours and 40 minutes for transfer. We need to go through customs. Is this time enough to transfer? Thank you very much
You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Aruba. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.
Hi,

I'm flying from Boston to Amsterdam via Atlanta (Delta and KLM). Do you think it's possible in 53 minutes transfer time?

Thx!
Yes, that's enough time. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concoruse to Concourse E or F where you depart and board your flight.
My grandson is going to be flying to Canada. He goes from Atlanta to Newark and from Newark to Quebec city. Which terminal will he leave from in Atlanta, International or domestic?
He leaves from the domestic terminal.
We arrive at concourse b and have to make an international flight in concourse f. We have only 18 minutes to do so. Will we have enough time?
18 minutes is not a legal connection time. Are you on a flight that has been delayed?
