Have a trip to Panama City on American and it connects in Miami then to Panama City. Ticket says North Terminal like any other AA flight. Do I check in at Domestic Terminal like any other domestic flight since I am leaving ATL going to MIA and present passport at check in? Or do I have to go to International because of the final destination? Thanks so much!
Yes, you check in at the Domestic Terminal. There is no American Airlines counter in the International Terminal.
You provide a tremendous service and I very much appreciate the guidance. Thanks so much and have a wonderful day!
Hi My grandmother is travelling from London Heathrow to Atlanta via virgin atlantic tomorrow. Is it possible to arrange for someone to help carry her luggage or for wheelchair service, once she reaches Atlanta? Thank you
Yes, you can call her airline and ask for wheelchair service. You can't arrange just baggage assistance.
I will be leaving Costa Rica with a 2 hour layover in Atlanta before leaving for Raleigh, NC. I assume I have to go through customs and recheck my bags. They won't just go through to Raleigh. Is that right?
Yes, that is correct. in Atlanta you will 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.
Traveling through ATL HJ Airport this Friday. Want to know if Friday sermon/prayers offered in airport chapel.
The airport interfaith chapel is just a decorated empty space for prayer. No religious services are held there.
Hi, I'm flying in from Brussels and have 1 hour 45 minutes to catch my flight to Cancun, Mexico. Will that be sufficient?
That is just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
We bought a round trip ticket from Atlanta to Dominican Republic. Now have to extend the trip to fly to Minneapolis. It is my understanding we will have to pick up bags at baggage claim and go back through security. Is this easy to do in the Atlanta airport? Is there a shuttle that takes you back to security check in point?
If you show your MSP confirmation to the agent in the Dominican republic, you should be able to have your bags tagged through to MSP. Then you can just drop your bags off at the re-check desk, in Atlanta's international Terminal, so then you can just go through security and to your departure gate.
Hey, I'm flying from Amsterdam Schiphol (AMS) to ATL and then continuing to Augusta Bush Field (AGS). I only have a 1hr35min layover. This is probably not enough if I have checked luggage, right?
That is correct. While not impossible, literally everything would have to go perfectly.

Hey I'm flying from Hawaii to Valdosta but I'm stoping at Atlanta. How do I get to the train to my gate?
Arrive in ATL 0903, depart to Aruba at 1030. As far as I understand we go through customs in Aruba, is this correct? Do we need to retrieve luggage to take to international?
There is no US Customs or Immigration when leaving the US. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, nothing with your bags.
