How do you know if it's a layover or you have to change planes
Going to be traveling by my self so I am a bit nervous. I am flying air tran, from St. Louis to Atlanta then from Atlanta to Orlando. How do I know if the stop in Atlanta is a layover or a plane change? I know this must sound a. bit silly but the more answers I have the better I feel.
Not a silly question at all Check your itinerary and look at the flight out of Atlanta. If it is the same as the flight number from St. Louis than it is just a layover. If it's a different number than you'll be changing planes. You could also call Airtran to verify it. Hope this helps!
Thank You for your help. I traveled to Disney by my self once before but it was non stop out of st. louis. This flight is MUCH cheaper that was why I ended up with it. Save money on the flight spend more at Disney. Makes sense to me!
One more question if I may? Will I pay for my checked luggage once. Or since I am changing plane will I pay twice each way. I know I could call air tran but sometimes it's hard to understand what they are telling me. Thank you again!
You will only pay for your luggage once. Changing planes on AirTran in Atlanta is usually not that big a deal. Often the gates are very close to each other. When you come off the first plane, there will be an AirTran person there to tell you where your next plane will be. Just stop and tell them you are going to Orlando. They will tell you which gate to go to and how to get there. I always go straight to the gate and then take my bathroom break and get food if there is time. I like to know where I need to be and get there before doing anything else. If you have 45 min. or more, you should have no problems.
