  • ATL- Bangkok with 1 domestic and 1 international stop
    Oct 17, 2014
    On October 24th I will be flying from ATL to Bangkok on United Airlines. I first fly from Atlanta to San Fransisco, then to Tokyo, and from there to Bangkok. All of the flights are on one itinerary. When I arrive at the ATL airport do I go to the international terminal or the domestic terminal? Will I go through customs in ATL or San Fransisco or both? I have a 1 hour and 40 minute layover in San Fransisco. I'm flying by myself and internationally for the first time so I'm a little nervous.


    You will go to the Domestic terminal - United does not have a check-in counter in the International Terminal. You should have plenty of time for your connection in San Francisco.


  • Atlanta to connect with a flight to Hewanorra
    Oct 16, 2014
    What do we do when we come into Atlanta? Do we go to the international terminal? We have 45min layover which is short do you think we can make that flight?


    You do not actually have to go to any different Terminal. You will just take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where your flight to Hewanorra will depart. 45 minutes should be enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • Domestic or international

    Im flying from atlanta to mexico city with a layover in san antonio. When i get to atlanta airport do i need to go to international germinal? Or do i take international once im in san antonio?


    You will go to the Domestic Terminal in ATL. In San Antonio both of your flights will be in Terminal A.


  • Montreal to Rio via Atlanta
    Oct 15, 2014
    Hello there. I will be flying from Montreal to Rio via Atlanta. Does anyone know if the DL YUL-ATL flight arrives in the international terminal? I have a 2 hour layover and I want to know if that is enough time (given possible weather delays). I'm assuming if I clear customs (if needed) in YUL then I should be able to get to my DL ATL-GIG flight pretty easily? Any advice appreciated!


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Montreal. YUL-ATL flights do arrive in the International Terminal even though you won't have to go through US Immigration upon arrival in ATL. You should have plenty of time for your connection.


  • Layover of 50 min or less
    Oct 13, 2014
    I am flying from CLT to ATL, arriving Concourse A, then connecting to an intl flight on Concourse E. If the CLT flight is on time I have 50 min. to connect. I have been tracking it and it is late more than it is on time. Just how much time do I need to get from A to E?


    It will take about 15 minutes to get from A to E on the Plane Train.


  • Do I have to go out to the terminal?
    Oct 13, 2014
    I will be traveling from LHR to ATL on BA. I will only have hand luggage. Once in ATL I have to catch a flight on DL to Texas. Since I do not have to collect any luggage, after I clear Immigration, is there a way to go straight to my Gate for the texas flight without going out to the terminal and going through security check? Thanks!


    There is a security checkpoint right after you go through Customs, go through there and you have access to the Plane Train that leads to every departure concourse. You will have to check-in for your Delta flight on-line or on your smartphone in order to do this so that you can get through security.

  • From SXM to YUL connecting in ATL
    Oct 8, 2014
    I have 1h between landing from St. Maarten until departing to Montreal. Both flights on Delta. Will I make it? Traveling with a Canadian passport. Will I have to clear US customs and security?


    No, 1 hr is not enough time. Yes, upon arrival in Atlanta you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, and re-check your bags with Delta. Then you will go through security and to your departure gate. As I said, 1 hour probably isn't enough time to do that.


  • will i make our connecting flight
    Oct 7, 2014
    Arriving form London into Atl, have a connecting flight to Tampa, all run by Delta via Virgin Atlantic, only have 2 hours is this enough time to clear security, customs and do we have to check in again for the next flight


    No you will not have to check in for your next flight you will be issued all boarding passes in London. Upon arrival into Atlanta you will arrive in Concourse E/F, go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US Customs, then re-check your baggage with Delta at the transfer desk, then you will go through security and take the plane train to your departure concourse for your flight to Tampa.


    Also, yes, that should be enough time.


  • Coonecting DL from YYZ via ATL to SXM
    Oct 4, 2014
    I have a flight from YYZ with DL, arrival ATL at T-1 9.40am and have a connectinf flight with DL from T-1 at 10.30 am, can I make this connection? I have been given to understand that US Immigration & Customs are done at YYZ and I suppose I have to clear TSA security only at ATL ? Do I need to rush from arrival to departure as a transit passenger ? Travelling Business Class on both flights.Any help available to make this short connection? All suggestions are welcome.


    Yes, you will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in YYZ. You will not even have to go through security in Atlanta. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to Concourse E or F where your flight to St. Maarten will depart.


  • London - Fort Myers
    Oct 1, 2014
    Hello, im after some advance, on the 29th Nov i fly from London to Fort Myers and have a layover in Atlanta for 4 hrs and 45 mins. I land at 14.20 and im thinking of buying an additional flight so i don't have to wait around as long but the only earlier flight is 3.30pm and i dont know whether this would allow me enough time to get through customs, collect my luggage then head to departures and re check in as i wont be getting on my actual connecting flight. Your help and advance would be appreicated. Klara


    70 minutes is probably too short to make comfortably.


  • Distance From D to B Concourse
    Sep 30, 2014
    I am inflight en route to ATL. I arrive at D29 and fly out 48 minutes later from B25. How do I get to B from D? This is my first trip into ATL. Thanks!


    The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. It should take maybe 10-15 minutes for your transfer.


  • Philadelphia - ATL - Dubai
    Sep 23, 2014
    Flying to Dubai from Philly international Delta airlines. Do we board as domestic fliers from philly and at ATL get our baggage, re-check our baggage at the delta counter and go through TSA security or we skip the baggage part (will get it at Dubai) and go through TSA security with our carry ons??


    You will not even have to go through security. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All concourses are connected inside security by the Plane Train. You do not have to go through US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US.


  • south terminal to MJackson Int term
    Sep 22, 2014
    we will be arriving on Delta south term. at 4:50 and departing from Maynard Jackson Int. term at 5:30. considering that gates usually close 20 early is doable?


    You will not actually arrive at the south terminal. Delta domestic flights arrive at one of the several midfield concourses. They are all connected to each other, and to the International Concourses, by the plane train, which runs underground inside security. Gates do not usually close 20 minutes early. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time but you don't have much time to spare in case of delays.


    thank you for the info


  • Delta Connection Layover 58 minutes
    Sep 18, 2014
    My flight arrives at 7:41 and all it says is Domestic South Terminal ... but my connecting flight, also Delta, departs at 8:39 from Gate E34. By looking at the map, that appears to be at the complete opposite end of the airport. Assuming I deboard quickly, and don't have to go through any checks or customs (domestic flight), is that going to be do-able?


    Actually, it looks like the plane comes in from an international flight at Gate E34, but it departs on my domestic flight from Domestic South. So I might be okay! Is it normal for flights to land at one gate, drop passengers, then move to another gate for a different departure?


    No flights actually "come into" the domestic terminal South. All flights use the various midfield concourses. If your first flight is domestic, all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All concourses are connected to each other by the plane train. You don't actually have to go to the Domestic terminal.
