Hello, I have a transfer time of 1 hour 45 mins in Detroit from an Amsterdam flight to Las Vegas, i am flying from Ireland initially,and will have to go through customs again, have i got enough time?all answers are much appreciated, Dave B
Yes, that should be enough time if both flights are on Delta.
Hi, My brother is travel from Vietnam to Boston for immigration. His flights would be Vietnam-Seoul-Detroit-Bocton. He has 2 hours connection in Detroit. Will he has enough time to check with custom and border and finish immigrant paper work ( green card and stuff) ? Hope you can answer my question. Thank you
Add to the post above: he is flying with delta. They posted the same flight number of flight from Seoul to Detroit and from Detroit to Boston. However, it's different aircraft so he has to get off the flight for the next flight to Boston. That makes his port of entry is Detroit, not Boston. Therefore he has to check with custom and border and finish the immigration paperwork in Detroit right? I'm really worried that it would take long and he will be later for the next flight (also delta) to Boston.
That is correct, he will do all the entry procedures in Detroit. He should have enough time to make his connection.
Hi, thank you for your response. I have one more question. He is doesn't speak English, so are they gonna find someone to translate for him at custom and border? I'm worried that will take time and he will be late for his next flight. If he couldn't catch his next flight which is also delta (under same ticket number as the first flight) will delta find him the next flight with no charge?
Hi, I spoke the delta airline but different people told me different things, so I really don't know who to listen to. Some told me that he need to check with custom and border in Detroit. Some told me he will check with custom and border in Boston (they said because the stop in Detroit just to change equipment and doesn't treat as connection flight) they said he just need to go to the next flight which in the same terminal. Have you heard anything like that? Thank you
I 100% Guarantee that all the immigration formalities will take place in Detroit. Whoever told you that they will be in Boston is an idiot.
We are flying from Paris, France to the USA via Air France and have only 1.5 hours to clear customs before catching our final flight (Delta) to Lincoln, NE. Do we have enough time or would it be wiase to just have carry on luggage?
That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
