Need advice on international flight connection - Air Traffic Controller impact

Jump to last reply

So we will have to connect via Delta in Atlanta in 2 weeks from our city in the Midwest to an AirFrance flight to Paris. I hate the Atlanta airport anyway, but the air traffic controller furlough is scaring me. Our connection is only 1 hour 15 min. I was worried under good circumstances that we would make it. I requested a wheel chair for myself, as I am walking challenged and figured this would help if the connection was tight. Our flight is in the afternoon to connect to a 6 p.m. Air France departure.

Now with projected delays due to the air traffic controller furloughs, I don't have confidence we will make it at all. If I call Delta and explain my concerns, what is the best strategy to use so that they will re-book us on a morning flight to Atlanta, which will assure us to make our connection? Thanks in advance for your help!
