How much time for layovers and clearing customs?

Jump to last reply

I am travelling RDM to VCE returning FCO to RDM. There are so many routing options I am trying to determine how much time to allow for changing planes and clearing customs before planning the next step of my journey. I am travelling on Delta September 2014.

I understand the gig is up and all plans go to H____ on a band wagon if weather or aircraft issues arrive but I'm trying to think/plan for the best scenario with backups in mind.

First choice (which I can hardly believe) is a layover of 37 minutes in ATL before boarding for Venice ... that seems to close for me. BUT what about 65 minutes is that reasonable (do able) in ATL for a plane change? I am trying to stay under a total of 20 hours travel time.

Arriving in Venice in the afternoon. My general rule of thumb is to allow 2 hours for customs before planning on getting the train. Does this seem reasonable for Venice or is to too long? short?

Returning to the United States I have the option again of 65 minutes between planes in SEA before continuing to RDM, again is this too short a time for customs clearing?

So will those of you with experience with any of these airports and their transfer and/or customs clearing time share your opinions please.

Thanks and happy travels.
