Arriving DL176 from Orlando (arrives ATL 7:14 pm) then DL176 (departs ATL 8:08 pm) to Dublin. Wife has problem with knee. Worried about connection. Tram info or advice would be appreciated.
You both need to take the train, it will take no more than 10 min. Luggages go directly to Dublin from Orlando. No much walk going down and up since there are electrical stairs. The only long walk perhaps is to reach your gate. There are many personal who drive a small car if you ask.
Flying into ATL on DL1553 domestic and need to transfer to an International flight. We have approximately a 1 hour layover. Do I need to wait and collect checked baggage and re-check before the International flight out? Will I have enough time?
If both flights are on Delta, all you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart and board your flight. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
I will be connecting from LAX to ATL with Southwest arriving 2:45 PM and need to catch the outbound Delta international flight to Munich at 5:50PM. How much time should I expect to spend collecting my checked baggage and transferring from the baggage area thru security to the international concourse?
Southwest takes its time to deliver the luggage (let's say from deplaning to pick your luggage: 30 min). Then, you need to take a shuttle because you need to go to the International Concourse: 20 min. Then, recheck with Delta and security again 40 min.
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I'm looking at flights from Dublin to Nashville via Atlanta with KLM operated by Delta. There's two options with connection times of 2hr 7min or 4hr 32min. Which 2hrs be enough or would it better to go with the 4 hour layover?
You will arrive at councourse E or F (Maynard International Terminal), it should take you 40 min to clear immigrations and customs. Then, you need to recheck your luggage, and will depend how long are the lines to clear security, likely no more than 40 min, + 10 min of train, it will be slightly tight. Which month btw? Sometimes, clearing security could take more than 1h. I would go for the 4h so you can enjoy this beautiful airport.
Actually, you will clear customs at Dublin. So, you will arrive as "domestic terminal" and your luggage will be sent to your final destination. You can take the 2h layover since it will take you no more than 10 min to change concourses.
That's great. I'm flying next month. Thank you so much for your reply!
Does the international term connect by train to the domestic terminals?
Yes, the Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.
Connecting flights tomorrow to Melbourne fl from atl
What is your question?
Traveling on Thanksgiving morning from AGS to ATL and then to AUS - both flights on Delta. The layover time is 1 hour 1 minute. If I'm seated near the front of the plane on the first flight, will one hour be enough time - including collecting a gate checked car seat? Thanks!
As long as you don't leave checkpoints, it should be fine. Is this one ticket or two separate tickets? I assume one. That should be plenty of time and will take you no more than 10 minutes to change concourses with the train.
My flight arrives from Manchester UK at14.45 Terminal 1 Atlanta, my next flight is to Monroe from Terminal S at 16.45, is this enough time?
You will arrive at councourse E or F (Maynard International Terminal), it should take you 40 min to clear immigrations and customs.

in december, my son will be arriving from Domincian Republic with his baseball team. the flight suppose to arrive at 6:30 pm. If he has to catch a domestic flight at 9:00pm does that give him time to get through customers and over to the domestice terminal? He is a citizen and i think we will work it so that he does not have checked bags. Enough time assuming no delays? I assume customs times will vary. Notsure how long the shuttle takes?
That's plenty of time. At most, he will spend 40 min in customs (usually 20 min since he is american). Then, he rechecks his luggage and clear security (40 min), then 10 min to reach his terminal. That's plenty of time.
Yes, that should be plenty of time. He will take the Plane Train directly to his departure concourse once he clears customs and security. That part is very short.
Hi,

I need to make a connecting flight to New Orleans will be travelling from Europe (either Holland or London). How much time should I give myself (I am not a US citizen)
You need to check on domestic. For your flight from ATL to New Orleans, arrive 1h before AT MOST (sometimes the lines get crowded so 2h should be fine).
For an International to domestic connection in Atlanta you need at least 2 hours. Please ignore Steph's nonsensical answer.
