Do I have enough time? Both are Delta flights - I think coming in at A40 and departing from A74.
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Getting connecting flight coming from Heathrow going to Nashville 2hour stop over, can i go out for a cigarette?
That's probably not enough time, although you will already be outside security after you clear customs and re-check your bags.
I am flying into DTW Gate A33 (Delta) tomorrow morning - scheduled to arrive at 6:40am. I have a connection at Gate A75 (Also Delta) scheduled to leave at 7:10. That's only 30 minutes. Is this enough time?
Yes, that's possible if the first flight is on-time.
Flight lands in Detroit from Dallas at 2:51; departs for Amsterdam at 3:51. Is this enough time? How far apart are the gates? Do we collect luggage or is it checked through?
If both flights are on Delta then both gates will be on concourse A of the McNamara Terminal and all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
Arriving on Delta and have 45 layover need to get from A76 to A28. Enough time?
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time.
I am flying from Orlando to Las Vegas, connecting in Detroit. The connection time is 30 mins. We are flying with Spirit airlines and will have a checked bag. Do we need to collect and re check bag? Is 30 minutes completely unrealistic?
You do not have to claim and re-check your bag if both flights are on the same reservation. The connection is possible if the flight from Orlando is on-time.
Thanks for this!
I have a 56m layover at DTW.Coming from Nashville ,going to Japan. All are Delta flights.Where do i do immigration and is there enough time ?
There is no US Immigration when leaving the US. You will go through Japanese Immigration in Japan. You have enough time. All you have to do in Detroit is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Arriving spirit airlines gate d11 @ 10:43 can I make it to gate d14 departing at 11:15?
Yes, that's possible if the first flight is on-time. Walking between the two gates will take like 2 minutes.
We are arriving to Dtw McNamara on a Delta flight from Pellston at 2:53 and have a connection on United in the north terminal with 2 bags at 4:15 will we have enough time to make connection?
That is a very difficult connection, especially if you have checked bags.
Where is the shuttle connection to take me from the North Terminal to the McNamara Terminal?
On the lower level of each, I don't know exactly where it picks up in the North Terminal but there should be a sign saying "shuttle to McNamara Terminal". It drops off by the car rental shuttles in the McNamara Terminal. Be sure to leave plenty of time as the shuttle does not run frequently.
Thank you!!
