Lounge options in FCO

Flying into FCO on DL444 from JFK, which arrives into Terminal 3. What is my best lounge option for my ~2 hour layover? I'm a Delta Gold Medallion and have Priority Pass as well. Can I access Casa Alitalia in Terminal 3 before I go through passport control? Or perhaps the Plaza Premium lounge?

I''m flying ATL-FCO-CTA. tomorrow. AZ just cancelled my FCO-CTA and re-booked me TEN HOURS later, as they have cancelled all flights in between, Would I have enough time to arrive with DL at 10:50a pick up my checked luggage and then check in with Ryanair for at 1:10p departure? I understand that both would be in Terminal 3.
If 2 hrs 20 minutes enough time to go through passport control pick luggage, check in woht Ryanair and go through security again? USA passport.

Thanks all

I think that’s tight. It is possible, but a lot of things have to go smoothly. If your first flight runs late, or there’s an extra long line at immigration, it throws off everything. Can you book the Ryan flight refundable? If you make it, fine. If not, you get a refund and wait the 10 hours for your AZ flight.
Also, is this Business, coach, first?

If you have a US passport, you'll be able to use the automated immigration gates on arrival (and departure). This'll save at least 1 hour in line at passport control. Bag claim is quick.
FCO is very efficient, however you may experience a delay on your incoming flight from ATL.

I will be flying BCN-FCO-LAX tomorrow in J with only 1 hr in FCO to transit. Are there any special precautions or preparations I should take to ensure I make it? Will not have any checked luggage.

No "precautions" needed. If your incoming flight is on-time, one hour is perfectly fine for a connection Schengen -> non-Schengen.

Hi All,

I am an Indian passport holder travelling from London Heathrow to Delhi via FCO airport through ALItalia. I have single ticket from LHR-FCO-DEL.

My flight from London Heathrow to FCO will land at terminal 3 then I need to catch AlItalia flight to Delhi which normally departs from gate "E".

Couple of questions

1. Do I need to change Terminal or gate "E" are within Terminal 3 only
2. Do I need to go through passport control while moving from Terminal 3 arrival to Gate "E"
3.Do I need to go through security control while moving from Terminal 3 arrival to Gate "E"
3. I have 3 hours transit time

Thanks in advance for your response

You don't have to change terminals, neither do you have to go through passport control and, you guessed it, no need to go through security. Finally, 3 hours is much more than enough time for what you have to do.

Of course, all of the above is true if you travel on a single ticket, you already have your BP for the "Alitalia flight". But then, 3 hours would still be more than enough.
