I'm flying from Nashville TN with a short time for plane change from American Airlines to Delta. Will my bags get automatically sent on to my destination or do I have to claim them and recheck with Delta? I'm headed to Cancun Mexico. Thanks
You will have to claim them in the Domestic Terminal, take the shuttle to the International Terminal, re-check them with Delta and go through security. If you have a "short time" this will be impossible. Also, American doesn't fly nonstop from Nashville to Atlanta.
We are flying from Paris to Liberia via Atlanta. Is 2h29 enough to get on our second flight? I am a Russian citizen (with active USA touristic visa), are there 2 different queues on US immigration control depending on travelers origin just like it is in Chicago? Thanks
Yes, there are two different lines. Yes, that should be enough time if the flight from Paris is on-time.
Arriving on Delta from Toronto with 37 minutes to connect to Delta flight to Savannah. Is that doable?
It's possible as you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto, but it leaves no time to spare if there are any delays.
As a polish citizen, do I have to apply for a visa in advance?
Yes, you do.
I am thinking of flying From Sarasota to Atlanta with a 41 minute layover to Columbia SC on Delta. I am wondering if I will have sufficient time to make the second flight. Any knowledge would be greatly appreciated!
It's enough time but leaves absolutely no time to spare if the flight from Sarasota arrives late.
My Delta flight from Quito Ecuador is due into ATL at 5:46 am.
My Delta flight to New Orleans is due out at 7:50 am

will I have enough time to do all the checks, re-check one piece of luggage and make the connecting flight on time?
Yes, that is enough time.
Thank you. After an overnight flight, I want the connection to go as smoothly as possible. Appreciate your reassurance.
We are flying Southwest, with a 3hr 20min layover in Atlanta before our flight to Columbus departs. Will we have enough time to go through customs, re-check our bags, go through security and make it to our connecting flight on time?
Yes, that is enough time.
We have a 1 hr 50 min layover in Atlanta coming in from Johannesburg and going on to Nashville. We have Global Entry and only carry-on bags. Do we have enough time to make our connection to Nashville?
Yes, that should be enough time if the flight from Johannesburg is on-time.
I'm flying in from Manchester UK (virgin) and traveling on to Jackson WY with Delta we have 1:45mins is thus enough time?. Also the only checked baggage is oversize (snowboard bags). What do we have to with these?
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, go through security and take the Plane Train to your departure concourse. Oversize bags will just be on a different baggage claim but are otherwise treated the same. You have barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Last year we flew from the Cayman Islands to Detroit via ATL. We had a rough time getting through security after customs and immigration and made our flight with 10 seconds to spare. This year we booked the same flight, and were assured that wasn't the norm. However my parents came through ATL from
Barbados tonight and were in customs/immigration/security for 2.5 HOURS. We will have two small kids along, and waiting that long will be beyond miserable with them, not to mention we only have 1 hour and 45 minutes to make our flight to Detroit. Everything is booked, or I would just change our flight right now. Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks in advance!
There's not much you can do, just hope for the best.
