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.
Once I land in terminal E from an international flight, before immigration, there was a "division": Atlanta bound passengers went to the left and passengers that had connections went to the right. Does it matter? I want to buy a hidden flight (final destination ATL but ticket says Oklahoma) and since I anyway have to clear customs in ATL, I thought it would be a good idea. But today I saw this thing. Does it mean that I will collect my luggage in "passenger in transit" or I can go to "ATL bound passengers"?
Yes, it matters, it means your bag will go to the baggage claim for connecting passengers and you will be forced to re-check it. So don't buy a hidden city ticket that is an international arrival through Atlanta with checked baggage!
Is there any way to not recheck?
Don't check baggage. That's the only way.
my flight is coming in from cdg to atl and have only 1hr 25 mins for next flight with same airline, is the time too close or enough to go by?
No, that's not reasonably enough time. You need AT LEAST 2 hours.
Yes. You will spend 40 min at most clearing customs and immigration. Right there, the airlines will collect your luggage and the line to pass security is shorter.
Arriving from Portland, ME and need to connect Liberia, Costa Rica. Assume I have to take plane train from domestic to international...No luggage, only carry on. Is this possible--or impossible?
Yes, that is possible but it obviously leaves no time to spare.
Flying into and out of Terminal S with 52 minutes in between. Will I have a problem time wise?
You won't actually go to the S Terminal. You go directly from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. You have enough time.
Landing at gate a26 at 715 connection to gate f8 at 804 will I make it?
It's possible on the Plane Train but it leaves no time to spare.
I need to get PU from the Domestic Terminal in ATL but will land in the International from the UK. How would I go about this? Any info would be a great help. Thank you.
Once you clear customs, exit the international terminal and take the shuttle bus to the domestic terminal.
I have a direct flight on Delta to Toronto ON. Will I need to check in at the international concourse or does it matter?
Yes, you need to go to the International Terminal if you have to check a bag or check-in at a counter.
I will be arriving Atlanta at 5:10pm and catching international flight at 6:17pm on same airline. Enough time to make conntection?
Yes, all you have to do if both flights are on Delta is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to Concourse E or F where you depart.
Hello. I'm going to flight with Delta next week, from Cleveland to New York City . I only have 40 minutes to go from B21 gate to T7. Is this time enough? I'm worried about it, don't wanna miss the flight, coud you help me please?
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.
