I have a booking at the end of January from MAN to RSW via ATL on VS109. We arrive ATL at 15.30pm and depart for RSW at 17.55pm. Normally this would show as a 2hr 25min transfer but the current booking is now showing -35mins and warning that we may need to change our onward flight. Luckily we have global entry so, hopefully, this shouldn't be a problem but as normal transfer times at ATL are about 90 mins including Immigration I wonder why it is now expected to take 3 hours. Is this a sign from VS that they are expecting long delays once the USA reopens. Hopefully not
This is weird, has one of the flight times changed?
I would usually plan for about 2.5 hours minimum anyway in ATL as immigration is so hit and miss and if you are collecting and re-checking luggage it can be a fairly lengthy experience?
Sorry - just remembered a discussion on another thread about some MAN-ATL direct flights being removed from the schedule but I thought this was up to the end of this year only?
