  • Is 1 hour 30 min layover enough to reach Terminal 1 from Terminal S
    Apr 14, 2016
    I am a non US Citizen travelling from Orlando to India. My flight plan is Orlando to Atlanta - 17:30 - 19:11 (Landing at ATL - Terminal S) Atlanta to Heathrow: 20:40 - 10:00 I have a layover time of 1 hour 30 minutes in Atlanta and Connecting flight is from Terminal I. Will this layover time be enough to take my onward flight. Thank you for your help.


    What airlines are you flying? Are all tickets on the same reservation?

    Travelling from Jacksonville to London Heathrow via Atlanta with Delta/Virgin on one ticket. Am I correct that once the luggage has been checked in at Jacksonville, I will not see it again until Heathrow as it is checked through?


    That is correct. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.


  • Manchester UK transfer in Atlanta to West Palm Beach
    Mar 22, 2016
    In a few weeks we will be travelling from Manchester Airport UK to West Palm Beach with a layover of just over 2 hours in Atlanta airport. The whole trip is booked with Delta, but the Manchester to Atlanta flight is on a Virgin plane. Please would you be so kind as to advise me what happens? Do our bags travel through to West Palm Beach or do we collect them, go through customs and recheck them? If we do, how long roughly does it take to get through customs? Also what do we do if we miss our connecting flight? Many thanks, I look forward to your response and for going through your airport, which sounds amazing according to the reviews


    In Atlanta, you will arrive in the E/F concourse, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and take the Plane Train to your departure concourse to PBI. You should have enough time. if you miss your connection you will be rebooked on the next available Delta flight to PBI.


  • Domestic Connection -change in itinerary
    Mar 17, 2016
    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.


  • Layover: 54 minutes
    Mar 4, 2016
    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.


  • Domestic or International to Turks and Caicos

    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


  • baggage drop international terminal
    Feb 17, 2016
    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.


  • British airways and Delta baggage transfer
    Feb 15, 2016
    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.


  • changing flights in Atlanta Hartsfield
    Feb 5, 2016
    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.


  • 47 minute layover
    Jan 30, 2016
    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.


  • We r flying from SJO to CDG and 2hrs layover in ATL
    Jan 17, 2016
    Is 2 hours enough time to catch the connection to Paris?


    That's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Transfer time from International arrival to Domestic connection
    Jan 14, 2016
    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
    Jan 12, 2016
    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.
