  • Domestic Connection -change in itinerary

    My husband and I will be flying Delta from SA to Newyork via Atlanta in April. We have had some changes in our travel plans and have decided to vist and stay with family in Atlanta instead of going to New York. The question is can we just exit at Atlanta? That is, go through immigration & security, retrieve our luggages and leave the airport without continuing on to Newyork and if this is possible how would it affect our return ticket? We really don't want to have to go all the way to Newyork only to buy another ticket to come back to Atlanta. Thanks for your help

     

    If you no-show your flight to New York then they will cancel the rest of your trip. You either need to fly the trip to new york or pay a change fee to add a stopover in Atlanta on your way to New York.

    I am going to ATL to take an international flight to Brazil. Delta has changed twice my first flight, resulting in 54 minutes layover. I'm afraid it will not be enough because I don't know how long it will take to get off from my first flight that is supposed to landing at 8 pm and my international flight will be 8:54 pm. Will this time be enough?

     

    It is enough time if your first flight is on-time. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in concourse E or F. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

    Which terminal does flight from Atlanta to Turks and Caicos leave from domestic or International?

     

    If you are checking in in Atlanta you will go to the International terminal to do so.

    I am arriving in ATL from Salt Lake. I will have 55 minutes to catch my flight to Munich. Is that enough time?

     

    Yes that should be enough time. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

     

    Was there enough time to connect with Munich flight

    Arriving noon ATL. Connecting with British airways separate ticket. Departure 9 PM. How soon can I check baggage at the international terminal

     

    The BA counter will probably open at about 5 or 6 if they don't have an earlier departure.

    I fly with delta from San Jose, Costa Rica and arrive around 1pm. My BA flight to London Heathrow departs at 9pm. I fear the BA check in desk won't open until hours after my arrival in ATL. Is there a baggage transfer desk after immigration that I can use and thereby save me hanging around in the departures hall waiting for he BA desk to,open?

     

    If your flights on two separate reservations, you will have to wait around the departures hall until the BA counter opens.

    Hello, I am arriving in Atlanta on 15 februari on DL073 from Amsterdam, and then leaving 2 hr later on DL1053 to West Palm Beach. I have to clear customs, re-check baggage. Do you think this is enough time? Also, is it a long way from customs to Terminal S were the flight to West Palm beach departs from, we are apparenly arriving at I from Amsterdam. I am blind, but will have my family with me. Still, it may take us a tad more time than for normal families. thanks you for your help Tobmat

     

    You don't have to actually change terminals. You will arrive in the E/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 a special security line for connecting passengers, go straight to the plane train and to your departure concourse. You should have enough time.

    Hi i fly out from Brisbane to LA and then to ATL(on time) and final destination MDE Colombia my concern is the 47 minute layover in ALT do i have time to make the next flight?. All flights are with delta.

     

    Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

     

    Too easy thanks Zap.

    Is 2 hours enough time to catch the connection to Paris?

     

    That's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    I will arrive into Atlanta on a BA flight from London at 2010 hrs; as a UK citizen I expect to have to clear immigration, collect luggage and pass customs then transfer to domestic and check bag and through security for my Delta flight to Fort Myers at 2155 hrs - am I going to struggle with this or am I safer staying overnight?

     

    Plan on staying overnight. There's no way you would be able to make it to the Delta domestic check-in desk in the domestic terminal before the checked baggage cutoff at 2110.

     

  • SJ Puerto Rico-Tor Canada 2 hour Layover in ATL

    I'm flying from San Juan Puerto Rico to Toronto Canada, with a 2 hour layover in Atlanta. I've never had a connecting flight before and was wondering if someone could tell me the process. What will I have to do, once the plane arrives in Atlanta? Do I need to go get my bags, or will they be moved to the plane by the employees? Do I have to go through any sort of security again? This one is stupid, but I know there is a Chick-Fil-A in concourse A, we dont have one of those in Canada and I'd like to try it, will I be able to or is that in a different part of the airport? Thanks for any help

     

    I'm flying Delta all ways, if that makes any difference.

     

    San Juan to mainland flights are treated like domestic flights. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All concourses are connected inside security by the Plane Train.

     

  • Connecting from DUB to MCO at ATL. Is 2 hours long enough

    Arriving from DUB, Ireland (we clear US Immigration at Dublin). Connecting flight to Orlando MCO. Both flights are Delta. Is 2 hours enough to collect bags and make connecting flight?

     

    You won't have to collect your bags. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. You have plenty of time.

     

    thanks

     

    On the return journey, I have the choice of 1 hour connection or 2 hour connection. What would you recommend?

     

    Either is doable. The 2 hour obviously provides more margin for any delays. Again, all you have to do in Atlanta on that trip is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate via the Plane Train.

     

    Cheers

    I will arrive in ATL from MAD (Madrid) on Delta at 2.51 pm, I have a connecting flight to PDX (Portland OR) at 4:30 pm, still with Delta. Do I have to change termnals? Is the connection time enough? Thank you in advance.

     

    You will arrive in the E or F concourse, 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. You should have just about enough time.

    Flying Toronto to Houston with layover in Atlanta, do I require to recheck my baggage and change terminals

     

    No, you do not. 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. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

    If I'm flying to ATL on Delta and then catching a Southwest flight to NYC, will I have to claim my bags and recheck or can the bags be checked through to NYC.

     

    Southwest does not transfer bags to or from any other airlines. You will have to claim your bags from Delta, take them to the Southwest ticket counter, and re-check them, then go back through security and to your departure gate.
