Hi, Im going from PHX-DTW-YYZ I only have an 1h 10min connection time at DTW all flights are with Delta is that enough time? and do i need to go through customs?
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no US customs when leaving the US. You go through Canadian Immigration and Customs in Toronto.
Flying from DTW to DEN on United this Friday, 12/23 - flight leaves at 4:40pm. About how much time will it take to check a bag? (Thinking of taking the Michigan Flyer to the airport but the only time I can book is to arrive at 3:20 - not sure if that is enough time)
I'm departing Korea to final destination, Baltimore, connecting via DTW. Based on other posts, I understand I need to claim my checked-in baggage, go through immigration & customs, then check my bags at "re-check" desk... Is this process and re-check desk all where the gates are? That is, I don't have to exit the gate area to claim my bags. just wondering if this "re-check" process is simpler or I need to exit the gate area entirely and check my bags again as if I'm doing that for first time.
No, the process takes place at the base of the terminal. You will exit the gate area entirely. The re-check desk will be right after you exit customs, on the lower level, you will then go up to the upper level to go through security and to your departure gate.
