Transiting from shanghai to toronto through detroit, will I collect my bags and go through customs in detroit before connecting for toronto
Yes, in Detroit you will have to 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.
We are arriving in DTW via Alaska Air (North Terminal) and depart Delta (McNamara) with 80 min layover if on time. I am concerned about the re screening time. Do we have enough time to make our connecting flight?
It will be very difficult, bordering on impossible, especially if you have checked bags to transfer.
I will be arriving from MDT and have less than an hour to make a connection in DTW to get to Denver, flying on Delta. Is that enough time? I am in shape but if my flight is even a little bit late arriving, is that safe?
Yes, that is enough time. All Delta flights are in the same terminal.
On May 25, I have an early morning flight on Delta from Phoenix to Detroit. Once I land in Detroit, I will have exactly 1 hour to connect to a flight headed to Cincinnati via a Delta Connection (operated by Endeavor Air). Will the one hour be enough time to make the connection? Thanks.
Yes, all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
Hi
Our daughter will fly from Phoenix with KLM to Detroit Wednesday next week with connecting flight to Amsterdam (KLM). Which terminal will she need to go to for Amsterdam.

Thanks
Both flights will be on Delta and be in the McNamara Terminal concourse A. All she has to do in Detroit is go from her arrival gate to her departure gate.
Flying into DTW from CDG, then on to BWI June 3. First time taking this path. Is 2.5 hours enough time to pass through customs, immigration? All flights on Delta, do I have to claim bag and recheck from DTW to BWI?
Yes, that is enough time. Yes, in Detroit 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.
Hello. I have a connecting flight from Toronto to Manila with a 1 hour and 23 minutes layover. Do you think that is enough? Do I need to pass through in the immigration? Thanks.
There is no US Immigration when leaving the US and you will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Toronto. So all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Detroit. if both flights are on Delta you have enough time.
Flights with Delta for BUF - DTW - CVG with checked bags; layover at DTW 48 minutes.
Do I have to do anything with my checked bags? DO I have enough time to change flights?
You don't have to do anything with your checked bags. Just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in the McNamara Terminal. You have enough time if the flight from Buffalo is on-time.
I will be arriving at DWT from FRA at 13:05 and final destination flight is to ORD at 14:10 all on a Saturday in September. The original connection time was 16:25 but airline cancelled and made the change. Is that enough time to claim luggage, go through customs, and make the flight to ORD?
if both flights are on Delta that is still enough time.
I will be flying from FRA on Lufthansa to ORD on an United Express. Does this still allow for enough time?
I have a one hour and forty six minutes connecting in Detroit from richmond to shanghai will I make it in time?
Just to clarify we are flying Delta
Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the way to Shanghai.
