Hello to all!
I am helping a teacher friend of mine book a trip for herself and her two daughters plan their trip to Athens this summer. All three have Delta SkyMiles Accounts.
The outbound trip will have them flying SAN-SLC-JFK-ATH. The girls are going from Athens to London independently with their dad. Mom is flying home direct from Athens, but the girls need to come home from London.
The choices for them are LGW-CVG-SAN or LGW-ATL-SAN. The CVG connection is one they have done before, but has a fairly long connection time, and a 737-800, which is 3x3 seating. Via ATL, they have better connection time, and a 767-300 to SAN, so the two can have window and aisle (no strangers); however, they've never been through ATL.
I have not experienced an international to domestic arrival from either airport - can anyone advise which would be a better experience for them? They have travelled internationally before, so they are not inexperienced. They have been through CVG before, but not ATL. Would that be a harder airport to navigate? Any experiences you all can recommend?
Thank you in advance!!
