  • Southwest arrival gates
    Jul 3, 2015
    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.


  • NEW Traveler with connecting flight!

    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.

    Arriving international passengers should be picked up at the new terminal.

    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.

    I'm flying out of Atlanta to Orlando when I head to the airport do I do domestic or international due to the signs on the freeway to get in to the airport




  • Oslo-Paris-Atlanta-Orlando

    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.


  • 55 min. between connecting flights
    May 10, 2015
    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?

    My first time flying out of ATL to SRQ. What's the easiest way to navigate the airport. Flying Delta.


    Just follow the overhead signs. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. It's a big airport but the layout is very simple.

    I am flying from ATL to London Gatwick with a layover at MCO with Delta. Do I go through domestic or International? Also, am I allowed to pack my full sized toiletry items in my checked bag? Thank you.


    Also, when arriving at MCO will I have to claim and recheck my bag or is it switched over to my next flight with Virgin?


    You can go to either, but I would say go to Domestic as your flight to Orlando will leave from that side. Assuming you purchased your tickets on one reservation, your bags will automatically be transferred in Orlando.


  • Flying in from London
    Apr 25, 2015
    We are arriving from London at 2.40pm connecting with a flight to New Orleans scheduled to take off at 3.55. Will we have enough time to clear immigration, collect our baggage and make the flight?


    that is a good 15 minutes below the recommended time for that connection.
