mt parents are connecting in atlanta from washington DC (IAD) with Delta (both planes) to go to Rome and they have only 50 minutes in atlanta: do they have enough time? they travel in business class. thank you
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. All they have to do in Atlanta on the way to Rome is go from their arrival gate to their departure gate.
Arrive on an American Airlines flight from Dallas, with a 2.45 hour connecting time to a Qatar Airways flight. Will be booked on 2 separate tickets. Where do I pickup my domestic arriving luggage and what is the best mode to get to the Qatar check-in. Will the 2.45 hour transit time (assuming on time arrival) from arrival on American, collect my baggage and getting to Qatar check in at the International terminal be sufficient? What is the best transfer mode and can it be done without going outside the terminal? Thank you.
You will claim your bags at the American Airlines baggage claim under Concourse T of the domestic terminal. You will then have to go to the ground transportation center at the other end of the Domestic Terminal building and take a shuttle bus to the International Terminal, re-check your bags with Qatar Airways, and go through security. That should be just enough time.
Thank you for you reply.
Hi, we are traveling from London to Jamaica, and have been told we are now going to be going to and from Our destination via Atlanta. but i'm concerned at how long it takes to get thru security (even though we aren't staying on US mainland) as we land in Atlanta from London at 1555 and our connecting flight to Jamaica is at 1813, and on the way back we land in Atlanta from Jamaica at 1731 and fly out of Atlanta to London at 1920. I dont believe the US are like other countries which have separate lines for connecting flights?
Yes, in Atlanta you have to go through US Immigration and customs, then go through security and to your departure gate. You should have just enough time both ways.
We are landing in Atlanta Sunday at 10:09 and are scheduled to fly out at 10:47, does anyone know what we all have to do and where to go and total time it will take to make our departure time
If you are arriving from somewhere in the US all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.
I am of the understanding that this airport has a service dog bathroom facility that does not require that I would have to go BACK thru security check line between domestic and international terminals.This was mandated by federal law in 2016 for any airport that serves more than 10,000 customers per year, but do not know if fully in place at this airport. Thanks in advance.
Traveling with service dog from domestic to international flight terminal. How much time should I allow to relieve my dog and not be stressed with possibility of missing my connection
I am about to book a flight from Kansas City, Mo to San Jose ( Costa Rica) with a 44 minute connection in Atlanta. Both flights are Delta. Will I have enough time assuming the flights are on time?
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to Concourse E or F where you depart.
thank you very much for your fast reply
i am booked on VS2651 (operated by delta) from Norfolk to Atlanta with a 1h 25 min connection to catch VS4044 to london Heathrow. I am assuming this is sufficient time to make the connection, but is it easy to navigate around Atlanta airport from domestic to international terminals so i don't miss my connection.
Both flights are operated by Delta. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse (E or F) and board your flight. You have enough time.
I arrive from PIT to ATL at 1749 then depart ATL for SJC, both on a single Delta booking with nominal 1h24 layover. (1) Will I have to go through security screening before boarding SJC flight or do I simply have to allow time to get to the relevant concourse / gate? (2) Additional security checks or not, is 1h24 enough time to make the connection? Thanks.
No, you won't have to go through security. Just take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse. you should have plenty of time.
Thanks ZAP! In that case I shall relax :)
How long will it take to walk from American's terminals in T, to Alaska's, in D?

You take the Plane Train. if your bags are checked through it takes less than 15 minutes.
Ok, thanks for your reply!
