  • 35 minute layover
    Dec 5, 2016
    I am flying to terminal C from Soo Michigan and need to get to A to fly to Vegas with a 35 minute layover time. Will this be enough time if planes are on time and I motor it with only carry-on bag?


    A and C are just concourses, not terminals. Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time.

    I am flying into Detroit for a connecting flight to Los Cabos in Mexico but my lay over is 54 minutes. Is that going to be an issue catching my connecting flight?


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate assuming both flights are on Delta.

    You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate.

    I will be flying Delta SBN - DTW - DFW in late March 2017 with about a 40 minute layover at DTW. Will this be enough time to make my connecting flight?


    It's possible. It doesn't leave any time to spare if the flight from South Bend is delayed.

    It's just enough time if everything goes perfectly.

  • Connection from AMS to ORD
    Nov 7, 2016
    Hi I will be flying from Delhi to Chicago. My first stop is AMS, enough layover time. My second stop in Detroit Airport. I have 1.5 hrs in Detroit. I believe I have to clear US customs and pick my luggage and drop it off for the flight from Detroit to Chicago. Is that correct? If yes do I have enough time to clear customs, pick up luggage, drop it off and clear security?


    Yes, that should be enough time if the flight from Amsterdam is on-time.

    Hi, I will be travelling from Montreal (YUL) to (DTW) to (LAX) with 58 minutes of layover time for connection.on wed, nov 9. Is the connection easy and do I have enough time? Thanks


    (With Delta airline)


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Detroit is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate both in the McNamara Terminal. You have enough time as long as the flight from Montreal is somewhere close to on-time.


  • Connection at Detroit on flight from Ottawa to Amsterdam (by Delta)
    Nov 4, 2016
    Hi! I'm having a short stopover at Detroit (about 1 hour) on my flight from Ottawa to Amsterdam. Both flight sectors Ottawa-Detroit and Detroit- AMS are operated by Delta. Can I check-in my luggage to Amsterdam at Ottawa or do I need to claim it at Detroit and re-check it again? The stopover is short, I'm afraid I won't make it if I need to go through passport control, customs and check-in again. Thank you!


    You will check your bags in Ottawa after you go through US Immigration and Customs Preclearance. You will not have to do anything with your bags in Detroit on your way to Amsterdam. All you have to do in Detroit on your way to Amsterdam is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.


    Thank you for a prompt reply!


  • Connection time to catch international flight
    Nov 1, 2016
    Arriving on Delta flight in Detroit at 11:12 am and need to catch a Delta flight at 12:05 pm. Delta agent says this is enough time as both flights are in the same terminal. I'm very nervous that it is not enough time.


    Yes, if the first flight is domestic that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from one gate to the other gate.

    Oct 30, 2016
    I am flying into Detroit from State College PA. My next flight leaves for Toronto with only 30 minutes to make the change. Will I make it


    It's possible. It certainly leaves no time to spare if the flight from St. College is delayed though.

    Oct 26, 2016
    I will arrive from Amsterdam with Delta (operated by KLM) and continue to Philadelphia also with Delta, is 1 hour and 45 minutes layover enough for the connection (customs, bags etc.)?


    Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Amsterdam is on-time.
