Total newbie post, APOLOGIES IN ADVANCE! *cowers in corner and waits for abuse to stop)
So, I'm about to book a return flight MCO-ATL-LHR (I'm flying into NY from London so there isn't a connection). What is the connection process? I've never had a domestic-international connection, only international/international - where you get off one plane and get on another - just a security check but no baggage handling and all the paperwork taken care of already.
But my incessant googling and forum reading (my death by over-preparation will put an end to the phrase one day) has illuminated the process and I believe that I go through immigration in Atlanta since that is the flight taking me out of the country? And that at some point in that airport I need to touch my bags and do something
with them (not sure what?). It's one ticket so the bags will be checked to LHR from MCO... right?
So, basically, what timeline am I looking at here? Flying Delta and I'm not a US citizen either. Thanks in advance!
