  • Amsterdam to Atlanta then connection to Savannah

    I am flying with Delta from Amsterdam to Savannah with a transfer in Atlanta. Will 2 hours be enough as a transfer time??? I will travel with carry on only. On my way back I only have 40 min or should I get a flight with a 1,30 hours transfertime

     

    Yes, 2 hours should be enough time. 40 minutes is possible on the way back but I would personally go with the 90 minutes.

     

  • Meeting a savy arriving teen domestic traveler

    I have two very smart, young teens that are arriving from the west coast. Without getting a gate pass, where is the best place to meet them? They have carry-on baggage and will be able to follow the signs to the baggage claim area or main terminal. Any advice on best location to meet. I'll be at the airport about an hour before they arrive.

     

    In the domestic terminal there's a main escalator that every domestic arriving passenger comes up when arriving (except those who arrive in concourse T). You can wait there (there's a metal bar there that you're supposed to stand behind).

    Flying from San Jose Costa Rica connecting in ATL (1h:51min) to a domestic flight. Is this enough time to clear costumes and re check bags?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will arrive in the E or F gates, 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 take the plane train to your departure concourse.

  • Southwest arrival gates

    I have a 12 yr old flying solo from LAX to ATL tomorrow on Southwest Airlines. What terminal will she arrive at? She'll have to navigate herself to the the plane train. I want to give her as much information as possible. I wish I could meet her at the gate but she is not flying as a UM.

     

    Southwest domestic flights arrive in concourse C and she should head to the domestic terminal. Teach her the sign for Baggage claim (a suitcase) and to follow that.

    Hi, I'm flyng from DFW to Atl to Rome, is 1 hour enough time to move from B7 to E12

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time if the first flight is on-time. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

    I'm arriving in ATL from SRQ on Delta and will need to transit to Korean Air. Will I need to pick up my bags in the domestic terminal or can I transfer them all the way to Korea when I check in at SRQ?

     

    If both tickets were purchased on the same reservation then your bags will be checked through to Korean. All you have to do in Atlanta is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you will depart.

    Hello! We are traveling from Chicago to Saint Lucia with a 50 minute layover in Atlanta. We will have carry-on bags and I am hoping we will have enough time!!! Will we have to go thru security again or will we just be able to go from our arrival gate to our departure gate?

     

    You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all gates inside security.

    Hi,we sure flying into ATL from LHR and then onto MCO with Virgin Atlantic.We have approx.two hours to change flights,do you think this is enough time? Many thanks

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Be aware that your second flight will be operated by Delta. You will arrive in the E or F gates, 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 take the plane train to your departure concourse.

    Hi, I am flying YYZ to ATL, then ATL to ICN. I am wondering if 1h05 layover is adequate and whether if I need to recheck my baggage? Thank you

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. 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. You don't have to do anything with your baggage.

    Hi, I will be travelling from Paris to Atlanta, I have 1h 30 min until my Atlanta - Orlando flight, will this be enough time? Both Flights are with Delta, I will be landing at 19.25 and my next flight is at 20:55. I have been in America before if that does any difference in time at the Immigration? I will have one checked bag.

     

    Also, when flying home, Im flying Orlando-Atlanta-Amsterdam-Oslo, and I have 56 min at Atlanta to get to the Amsterdam flight, do i need to recheck the bag again here? Im flyging Delta Orlando - Atlanta, and KLM to Amsterdam, but i booked the tickets together.

     

    That should barely enough time in Atlanta on your way to Orlando. On your way back to Oslo you will not have to do anything with your bag in Atlanta. All you will have to do in Atlanta in that direction is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you will depart.

     

    Travelling from mbj to msy with two hour layover in atl. Flying with delta for both flights. This is my first time travelling. Will they transfer my bags to the other flight or do i need to recheck them. Please any help or tips on how to get through my first ever trip would be so very great.

    I would like to know if 55 min. give me enough time to go through terminal S to terminal I. It´s a flight from New Orleans to Atl. to Buenos Aires (Argentina). Will my bags go directly from New Orleans to Buenos Aires?. I would also like to know if I have to pass security or any other check point between terminal S and I. Thank you.

     

    Yes, your bags will be transferred. All you have to do is take the plane train to concourse E or F. You do not have to go through security.

    Does 55 min. give me enough time to get from terminal S to terminal I? Its a flight from New Orleans to Atl to Buenos Aires (Argentina).

     

    You don't actually have to change terminals. You just have to take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse. You should have plenty of time if your first flight is on-time.

     

    do you furnish wheelchairs for people that need help getting to the plane?
