The information on the forum is confusing me so I hope some Atlanta experts on intl-intl connection can clarify how my journey will go. I have an ESTA to pass through the US on my way to Jamaica and will be travelling on my Belgian passport.
Since my flight is entirely operated by DELTA and my bags will be checked until Kingston, I assume I don't need to collect them and recheck them in Atlanta. Am I right? Will be 2 hours enough to pass through immigration and customs on a Saturday afternoon in the international terminal? I'll be arriving at approx. 2.30pm from Brussels (any idea if these flights are prone to delays?) and will be departing at 4.36pm to Kingston.
From what I understand is that for my return flight early November (Kingston - Atlanta - Brussels) I'll have to collect my bags and recheck them. Correct? Why is this? I don't see the difference, except that I'm travelling from the Caribbean instead Europe, but it's an entirely DELTA operated flight schedule again... However, I do have +4 hours for the stopover that time. Again, I'm travelling on a Saturday.
Any information specifically to my question/travel schedule would be highly appreciated.
