    Im arriving from Paris to detriot and have a 2 and a half hours of layover is that enough to clear customs and make it to the gate. Im mexican


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • Enough time?

    I will be arriving at DTW and have one hour to get to the other terminal to board and American airline flight. Is this enough time? Does anyone have any tips that might help?


    You don't have enough time. The Shuttle bus runs infrequently and takes awhile. Where are you flying into Detroit from and on what airline?

    Arriving from Europe as a non-US citizen on DL139, I have 1 hr 20 mins to catch my connection DL4967. Is that enough time for claiming & rechecking my baggage? Any tips what I can do to save time?


    Just move as quickly as you can. You can make it if everything goes smoothly.


  • JFK - DTW - NRD

    I am flying to Japan from JFK via DTW. I have a 40m layover in DTW. Is that enough time? It's a delta flight, it's all 1 ticket. I can't tell what the terminal/gates are.


    Both flights will be in the McNamara Terminal. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.

    I will be traveling later this week From FLL on DL2444 and be transferring to DL2110 to SLC... I only have a 30 minute layover. Is this enough time? Are the gates relatively close? Thank you for your time


    Both flights will be on Concourse A of the McNamara Terminal. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.

    Based on previous flights on Delta's website, I'm assuming my first flight will arrive in Concourse A, and my second will leave from Concourse B. Is 80 minutes enough time, and is there a post- TSA way to connect?


    Yes, A and B are connected inside security. That is plenty of time. it shouldn't take you more than 10 minutes to go between gates if the first flight is domestic.


  • Enough time to get to second flight?

    I'm flying Delta flight189 from Boston to Detroit then am on another Delta flight 189 - have to change planes and go to a different gate- to be on Flight 189 to Beijing. I have 1 hour and 9 min to get on the next plane. Will I make it and will my luggage too? Going on March 31, about 3 weeks from now, thanks.,


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both on Concourse A of the McNamara Terminal.

    I'm a US citizen arriving in Detroit on a direct flight from Beijing with my Vietnamese wife. We have 1 hour and 40 mins to get to our connecting domestic flight to St. Louis. Is this enough time to go through all customs and immigration?


    Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Flying with a lay-over of 1 hour 20 minutes in Detroit. Will that be enough time for the plane to Ft. Lauderdale?


    That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Thank you Zap. I forgot to mention that both flights are Delta. Is it then still enough time for the lay-over from an international flight to a domestic flight.


    Yes, I assumed as much.


  • Chicago to Detroit to Paris
    Feb 9, 2017
    I'm flying Chicago to Paris with a layover in Detroit. Do I need to claim my bags in Detroit and then go to an International terminal to check in again? All of the travel is on one reservation.


    All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in the McNamara Terminal. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.

    Hi, I'm from the US, going to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic and flying back Saturday at 6:15pm. I'm leaving on an 8:50pm flight to Madrid the same day. Will I have enough time? Will I need to go through customs if I'm just leaving the country again? Thanks for your help!


    So you are flying DTW-PUJ-DTW and then later are flying to Madrid? (there are no nonstop flights from Detroit to Madrid so you must be stopping somewhere else first). If that's correct then yes, when you arrive back in Detroit you will have to go through US Immigration and Customs.

  • What can I do when p[lanes arrives too late.
    Jan 30, 2017
    Sorry ZaP. I just have written a message but I forgot to give my e-mail address. I repeat. I have to fly from amsterdam to Detroit on the 18th of February and then transfer to the plane to Fort Lauderdale. My Flightnumber is: DL 135 and I will arrive normally at 13.50 hours Then I must have to go to another concourse to fort Lauderdale . Flight number DL 1704 leaving Detroit at 16.00 hours. Till so far no problems. But to-day with the same flight from Amsterdam the plane had a delay cause it leaves Amsterdam at 13.01 p.m. and will arrivé at Detroit at 15.11 hours !!! I have to get the cruiseship in fort Lauderdale which leaves next day at exact 16.00 hours P.M. What I have to do then. It happens frequently that planes have a delay in Amsterdam. Please help me!!!


    Delta had a major computer failure yesterday that caused delays today, these are abnormal. You should have enough time.


  • When I have a delay in Amsterdam
    Jan 31, 2017
    I wanyt to go from amsterdam to Fort Lauderdale with a transfer in Detroit. My fglight no. DL 135 leaving amsterdam and arriving Detroit 13.45. I have to transfer to Delta Flight 1704 at 16.00 hours to Fort Lauderdale, This will happen on February 18 next. When I had to travel to-day the plane had a dely fron 1 hour 21 minurtes and will arrive at 3,09 at Detroit. Do I have then time to catch the plane to Fort Lauderdale. The transfer time is only 50 minutes. Thank you. I feel very nervous if this should happen, cause I have to go to the cruise ship in Fort Lauderdale, which leaves exact 16.00 hours next day. What must I do then. Please help!!!


    Delta had a major computer failure yesterday that caused delays today, these are abnormal. You should have enough time.


    Thank you Zap. I am relieved now. Thank you very much.


    I am still thinking that when it happens that I have a delay coming from Amsterdam to Detroit so not to be in time to get my next flight to Fort Lauderdale, because many delays here in Amsterdam because of fog. What is then the procedure to get me and my husband in time in Fort Lauderdale for the cruiseship, which leaves next day at 16.00 hours sharp. We are travelling both flights with Delta. Last weeks I saw regularly delays in Amsterdam for Delta Flights to Atlanta and Detroit. Thank you in advance ZAP


  • flying from LAX via DTW to YOW

    I am flying from LAX to Ottawa via DTW with only a 48min connection. is it enough time to make it and should I clear customs in DTW before boarding? I am traveling with anther adult and a child. thank you


    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You go through Canadian Immigration and Customs when you get to Ottawa. All you have to do in Detroit is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Thank you! does this mean that 48min are enough to make the connection?


    Yes, it should be.
