  • Heathrow to Miami

    We are travelling from Heathrow with Virgin to Atlanta and need to pick up a Delta fight to Miami. How long do i need to leave between arrival and departure. Which terminal will my Delta flight go from and how much walking is involved?

     

    You will arrive in Concourse E or F, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then take the Plane Train directly to your departure concourse (you don't have to technically change terminals). There is a moderate amount of walking. I recommend at least 2 hours.

     

  • Connection time at Atlanta

    Hi I am arriving with my family at Atlanta on a delta flight from the UK and then 1.45hrs later flying to Orlando. My question is is this enough time as it was originally 2.25hrs to get through immigration and get to my flight. Also will my baggage be transferred or will I have to collect it and then re check it in. Two youngsters with us so I want the minimum of fuss for them. Thanks for your help.

     

    You will have to 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 on the Plane Train. You should have enough time if everything goes smoothly. Delta has hourly flights from Atlanta to Orlando.

    Returning from Rome to Atlanta via Delta #65, will have 2 hours 22 min to connect with Delta 1657 to Santa Ana. Is this enough time for transfer, bags and customs?

     

    Yes, that is enough time.

    We are flying from Milwaukee WI on Delta arriving at terminal S we have a 49 minute layover until we have to leave from terminal I on Aeormexico to San Jose Del Cabo. Will this be enough time to make the connection?? little concerned.

     

    That is enough time. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse (E or F). Both flights will be operated by Delta.

     

  • Travel from Amsterdam to Orlando via Atlanta

    If I arrive from Amsterdam in Atlanta at 2:26 pm and my flight to Orlando leaves at 4 pm, do I have enough time to go through the whole process (immigration, bags, etc.) Both are Delta flights. Thanks.

     

    That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. If you miss your connection, Delta has hourly flights from Atlanta to Orlando.

     

    Thank you!

    Hi, we are flying delta into altalnta, bext flight virgin to heathrow 50 mins later, is this enough time ?

     

    Yes, if the first flight is domestic that is enough time. You just have to take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to Concourse E or F where you depart.

    Hello, I'm landing into Atlanta from Montreal and flying out to Mexico City and only have 50 min to catch plane, will I have time? I don't have gate numbers yet but both flights are international

     

    Yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Arriving from London on Virgin Atlantic/Delta VS4009 at 20:17 then VS4384 to Lexington at 22:20, both operated by Delta. UK passports. Have we enough time? There is a warning about change of terminal.

     

    You will arrive in Concourse E or F, 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 to your departure concourse on the Plane Train. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

  • travel from Manchester uk to san francisco

    Have booked Virgin flights from Manchester UK to San Francisco via Atlanta. Manchester/ Atlanta return are with Virgin but Atlanta SF return are with Delta on shared code. Do I have to go thro immigration, retrieve bag, customs, security in Atlanta? On the return from SF to Atlanta will I have to retrieve my bag or will it go straight thro to the Virgin flight? Thanks for any tips

     

    Yes, on your way to San Francisco you have to do all of that in Atlanta. On the way back, you can just go straight to your departure gate in Atlanta.

     

    Many thanks for that information. Just one more worry! If I don't receive a boarding card at Manchester for the Atlanta san Francisco leg will this be a problem going through security in Atlanta. As an elderly lady I'm hoping that I'll have enough time with a 3 hour stop over in Atlanta?

     

    You can get the boarding card in Atlanta outside security (you will already be outside security), if you aren't issued it in Manchester (but you should get it in Manchester).

     

    Thanks for that. If I don't get a boarding card in Manchester can I get one at a Delta desk at Terminal F before going through Security?

     

  • Where to meet a flight from Nassau

    I am flying Delta from Dallas on June1; my husband is arriving from Nassu on Delta on the same day. What terminal for the Dallas flight? Which one for the Nassau flight? Best place to meet?

     

    If you both have checked bags then the Nassau bags will come out in the International terminal and the Dallas bags will come out on the S side of the Domestic terminal. However, if you don't have checked bags you can exit the airport in either terminal.

     

    Also, it's worth mentioning that your husband will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Nassau, so his arrival will be like a domestic flight but any checked bags will still go to the international terminal.

     

  • From Paris To San Jose

    Hi I just booked a flight from Paris To San Jose. I have a first stop in Detroit of 2h11 and then another stop in Atlanta of 44min. Do we need to go through the immigration again in Atlanta ? And 44 min is it enough to change of plane ? Thank you very much

     

    San Jose (Costa Rica :-p )

     

    There is no US Immigration or customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the Plane Train. You have enough time if your flight from Detroit is on-time.

     

    Thank you :) Good news !

    I will be arriving in Atlanta at 8:45 a.m from Toronto. My next flight to San Jose is at 9:40 a.m (55min layover) and I think I still need to go through immigration, customs, security stuff at ATL. I also need to transfer terminals. Do you think I can make it? What should I do

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. You have enough time.

     

  • Ease of navigating for very anxious 1st time traveler

    Arriving Delta at 12:00 departing 1:15. Have never flown before nor changed planes. Is the Atlanta airport easy to navigate, how do I find the train to the other gates (gates for flights not yet posted on the website). super nervous, not about the flying part, about the navigating part and not missing my connection.

     

    Yes, it is large but it's a very simple layout. All it is is a series of hallways (concourses) connected at the middle by the Plane Train. Everyone will be heading towards the train as it's the only way to get in or out of the concourses, so you really can't miss it. You should have enough time if the first flight is domestic.

     

  • How close are these terminals

    Arriving Jan 24 at terminal S gate C7 leaving 45 mins later gate C17 terminal N,enough time? How close are these to each other?

     

    If both gates are actually in C they are practically right next to each other, if you don't have checked bags you don't actually have to change terminals. Are you flying in on Delta and out on Southwest?

     

    Both flights southwest. Thanks for yourvresponse

     

    Then you just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    How did you find out which gates you would be at?

     

  • Short Connection Time

    I am looking at flights back from Orlando to Manchester (UK), and there is an option to fly via Atlanta. The tickets will be booked with Delta, and the flight from Orlando to Atlanta will be a Delta flight, though the connecting flight to Manchester will be with Virgin Atlantic. The arrival time of the flight from Orlando into Atlanta is scheduled for 18:15 with the departing flight from Atlanta to Manchester scheduled to be at 19:10 giving a short 55 minutes for the connection. This doesn't seem long to me, but as I have never done a connecting flight before, I'm not sure whether this will be long enough, on the assumption that the flights are all on time. I would appreciate any comments. Thank you

     

    That is enough time if the flight from Orlando is on-time. All you have to do in Atlanta on your way back from Atlanta is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart and board your flight to Manchester.

     

    Thank you for your quick response.

     

    I have sort of the same connection,Delta flight from orlando to atlanta and virgin flight from atlanta to manchester, do you need to collect luggage and re check in and go through security or will luggage be redirected to the plane?

     

    No, on the way to manchester you don't have to do anything with your bags in Atlanta. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.
