I'm arriving from Mexico with 3 kids going home to Pittsburgh. The layover is only 1hr 15 mins, would that be enough? We're all citizens so hoping the line is a bit shorter but you never know.

On the outbound, we only have 45 mins - is that enough to make it?

Can't find the arrival/departure concourse on my reservation. Can you help?
You won't know the concourse for the Pittsburgh flight until the day of your flight. The Mexico flight will probably be concourse E. You have enough time on the way to Mexico. On the way back it will be pretty difficult, bordering on impossible.
I'm am arriving at ATL from Paris on Delta. Then flying American to DFW. How long does it take to clear customs get my bags and check in with American Airlines.
I would want at least 4 hours between flights since you will have to take the shuttle bus from the International Terminal to the domestic terminal to re-check your bags with American after clearing customs, then go through security in the domestic terminal.
I'm flying into Atlanta from San Francisco arriving in Terminal S at 17:05. (Delta flight)
My connecting flight is from Terminal I at 19:10 to Manchester, UK. (Virgin Atlantic flight)

1) what will happen with my bags, will I have to claim these and move these between flights?
2) how do I get between the two terminals?
All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, nothing with your bags. You don't even really have to change terminals. Just take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to Concourse F where you depart.
My flight schedule is like this
1. Chicago to Atlanta (Domestic leg)
2. Atlanta to Heathrow
The ticket shows arrival at South terminal and departure from international terminal. There is a time gap of 3.5 hours approx between 2 flights.

So, 1) will my immigration be done at Chicago or Atlanta.
2) How will I go from South terminal to international terminal?
3)Do I have to take luggage or will it be automatically taken care of?
4) will the time be sufficient enough or will there be a time crunch?
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You don't actually have to change terminals in Atlanta. You just have to go from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse via the Plane Train. You have enough time. You don't have to do anything with your luggage.
Thanks ZAP.
Will 50 minutes be enough time to change planes qith 2 kids in tow. All Delta flights
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Thanks, my flight leaves TPA at 835am but I have the option of a 730am flight that would leave me with plenty time in ATL. But since it will be a long day traveling to Maui with kids I was hoping the let them sleep in a extra hour.
knoxville to atl then onto amsterdam how long from gate to gate in atl
All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart. 45-60 minutes is possible.
I arrive in ATL from LAX at 8am on Delta and depart about 10am from ATL to St. Maarten. Will my luggage be transferred since I checked them in LAX to St Maarten? And will I just need to take the plane train to the departing terminal after I arrive at ATL. Thank you
Yes, you don't have to do anything with your bags in Atlanta. Just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the Plane Train.
What concourse is Terminal 3 and is Terminal 3 the same as International Terminal?
Atlanta does not have a Terminal 3. You are likely reading your itinerary wrong. Where are you flying from and to and on what airlines?
Flying Delta.....I believe answered my question in a previous question. Thank you
We are flying Delta from Toronto Ontaio to Mexico City with a connection in Atlanta. Do we change terminals? We have 90 minutes!
Both flights will be on Concourse E or F (likely E). You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Toronto so all you have to do in Atlanta on the way to Mexico City is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thank you!
Hi, my relatives are traveling from Mumbai to Paris to Atlanta (both Air France). Eticket shows they will arrive at Terminal I. Connecting flight to Kansas City is from Terminal S. Can you please tell me how to go from Terminal I to S. Also, as port of entry is Atlanta, do they have to collect their baggage and do check in again for domestic flight (Delta airlines)? Layover at Atlanta is 2 and half hours. Will that be enough?
They will go through US Immigration, claim their bags, go through US Customs, re-check their bags at the re-check desk immediately after, go through security and then take the Plane Train directly to their departure concourse. They don't actually have to go to the S Terminal. They should have enough time.
