Atlanta Airport
      #1724560 - 02/28/17 08:46 AM (149.58.2.227)

We have typically travelled from San Antonio to SXM via Miami on American Airlines.

However, for our May trip the American flights available do not fit our timing and the price is too high.

There is a Delta flight through Atlanta. Is 45 minutes enough connection time in Atlanta? We are not that familiar with that airport, just know that it is big.

I travel thru ATL frequently & would never book a 45" connection. There are so many variables - if you land & take off from the same terminal you'd be OK but there's no guarantee of that happening. So if you have to change terminals it would be difficult. And since Delta only has a couple of flights a day I wouldn't take that chance of missing a flight.

Great, we have the same issue in Atlanta with 45 minutes to connect our departure flight to SXM. Also had the same issue with American where we couldn't get there in a day and prices were ridiculous so I found this Delta flight and now hoping we can make it to the gate in time.

We have gone through Atlanta the last 3 trips on Delta and all had about 40 some minutes and all were fine, using the train from b to e concourse this year no problem but we did get in a few minutes early. Have fun.

Bear in mind, there is a good 30-40 minutes of extra time built into the schedule. While it would concern me, I just connected through ATL (with a much longer window) and 45 minutes would have worked. There is an underground train system that is very efficient.

I did a :45 change and managed to get a starbuck. B to E terminal.

Now, coming back would be a very different story

I would agree on a return connection.

To the original poster, check a couple of days and see how close to on time your flight is arriving and the connection departing. That will give you some idea of what to possibly expect.

All of our flying is into or out of Atlanta. Be aware that the domestic terminal and the international terminal are in completely separate buildings. It is not a matter of going to a different section of the same facility, but a matter of flying into one facility and then transferring to the other facility. It is possible with 45 minutes but I would be very nervous.

That assumes the flight to SXM would leave from the international terminal
