We are flying ATL-YQB early morning. Can we check luggage at Domestic Terminal and take the train to International Terminal
Flying Denver to Rome on Delta, with a 50 minute connection time in Atlanta. Is this enough time?
Hello, I have two connecting international flights through Atlanta.

First leg, YYZ Toronto to San Salvador both flights with Delta with 1 hour 26 mins. connection time.

Second leg, San Salvador to Toronto both flights with Delta with 3 hours 55 mins. connection time.

Do I have to go through US Immigration, claim my bag, go through US Customs, re-check my bag at the re-check desk, then go through security for both legs of the flight and also if both connection times are enough to make it without any problems.

Thank you.

I am being dropped of at the Domestic terminal but need to take a flight from the international terminal. How do I make this happen and how long should I expect the transport to take? Also I'll have my luggage so is difficult?
We are travelling from London Heathrow via Atlanta to Fort Myers International. Virgin / Delta. We have 90 minutes between flights and as we have not flown through a gateway before, we are not sure how long it takes to get through. Also, do we need to collect our cases and re check them in, or will they simply be put in the next flight for us? We would be grateful for any tips you can give us. Many thanks.
I think 90 minutes will be enough time to clear customs, but you never know. It took me around 45 minutes than I rushed to my departing gate with 15 minutes to spare. If something happens I have been told by Delta employees that they will book me on the next flight. You will need to collect your luggage once you exit customs and recheck them with Delta. There are employees that will guide you on where you need to put your luggage so that it makes it to your final destination.Once you do that you will need to be checked again by TSA and off you will need to go to find you terminal.
How long will it take us once we land?
Flying from Rome to Atlanta to Orlando-baggage customs question- when we land in Atlanta do we have to get our luggage and go through customs in Atlanta-or does our luggage go straight through to Orlando and we go through customs without it? We have a three hour layover in Atlanta. I’m assuming that is enough time. It is through Delta-both flights.
I am travelling on Delta from TPA to ATL and then with British Airways to LHR. They are on different tickets so I am assuming I collect my bag from domestic bag reclaim and then transfer to the international terminal? Is this right and will this all be airside? How is the best way to get me and my bags through to the international terminal?
Many thanks!
