Looking at flights and I see 2 that will work for us. Both leave MBJ at the same time, but one gives us 1 hour and 25 minutes layover in Atlanta, the other 3 hours.

Having never flown out of country before, is the shorter connection time enough time in Atlanta, to get through customs and grab our bags, recheck them and make our flight? I know Atlanta airport is HUGE ...

It would be on DELTA if that makes a difference.

Thanks for nay help in this.
