  • Transfer flight from Brussels to Cancun
    Mar 27, 2017
    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.


  • Re-Checking bags
    Mar 13, 2017
    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.


  • Intl to Domestic layover
    Mar 6, 2017
    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.


  • Enough time

    I am arriving from fort myers with a connecting flight to london, with 1 hour 10 mins between flights is this enough time to get from 1 to the other?? Thanks


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse.

  • Hawaii to New York - Atlanta stop over
    Mar 9, 2017
    Hi I am flying from U.K. To Hawaii , then a week later Hawaii to New York with a 50 minute stop over in Atlanta. Booked as a package through virgin so internal flights delta. Is this enough time? Do I need to collect baggage or go through customs/security? U.K. Citizen.


    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Atlanta on your way to the UK is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart and board your flight.

    Yes, that is all you have to do

    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.

    Delta arrivals experiencing 2-3hour wait for gate due to computer problems. Why does your website report no arrival delays?


  • Atlanta Terminal Transfers
    Jan 27, 2017
    I am flying from New Orleans to Atlanta with Delta,then onto UK with Virgin Atlantic, anyone know the Terminal / gate numbers, and is it easy to do this transfer?


    You will arrive in Concourse T, A, B, or C. You will depart from Concourse F. All you have to do is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse. You don't actually have to change terminals.


  • PENS to ATL to JFK to Milan
    Jan 24, 2017
    We only have an hour layover in Atlanta. Will this be enough time since this is an international flight?


    Is "PENS" Pensacola? If so that's plenty of time. Flying from Atlanta to New York is not an International flight.

    I am flying my cat from London to ATL as declared cargo, since he is flying after us. Any idea where in ATL airport should I collect him from and how is the process to clear him through customs? appreciate any help!


    Ask the cargo agent when you drop the cat off. It would help if you posted what airline you are flying.


  • Rechecking baggage at Delta ticketing desk
    Jan 18, 2017
    I'm arriving on Delta 110 from Buenos Aires at 5:30 am and connecting to Louisville, Kentucky on Delta 2482 at 9:44 am on a multicity ticket, so my bags will not be tagged to SDF, but Atlanta only. After going through immigrations and Customs, I have to go to a Delta ticketing desk to recheck my baggage. Where is the Delta ticketing desk to recheck my baggage and how do I get there after immigrations and Customs? Thanks in advance!


    You can see if the Delta desk after customs can re-tag your bags. If not you will have to take the shuttle to the domestic terminal to have them re-tagged and then go through security there. Regardless, don't let go of your bags until you see an SDF tag go on them. Alternatively, you can ask the agent in BA if they can tag your bags through to SDF, then you can definitely re-check them in the International Terminal.


  • which Sky Club is best at Atlanta airport?
    Jan 18, 2017
    Will be flying to Harrisburg, PA from the Bahamas. We will have a 5 hour layover in Atlanta. We have a 1 day pass to Delta Sky Club. Which Sky Club do you recommend for best FREE food and alcoholic drinks? Should we stay in the International one in Concourse F or travel to the domestic departure area? Looking to get the most value for money on our pass. Thanks


    I would stay in the International one.
