I am flying to MUC from SFO via DTW. My layover is 1 hour. Is this enough time? Is there any trick that can improve my chances if things go wrong (i.e., can the crew call the other plane to wait for me)?
Both Delta. Is a general practice to wait for passengers? Is statistically this flight generally delayed?
They do not hold flights. Detroit is an uncongested airport and it will only take you 10 minutes tops to get from your arrival gate to your departure gate, so you shouldn't have trouble with this connection unless something goes seriously wrong.
Hi. I'm traveling from Amsterdam to Akron via Detroit. I have 2 hours transfertime available, is that sufficient? I've traveled via Atalanta last year and missed the domestic flight with 2.5 hours transfer time. US Customs / immigration took 2 hours alone on that trip, so I am a little worried about the setup in Detroit or a faster process could be expected. Thanks in advance. Thomas
Detroit usually is much faster. That should be enough time.
Hi. I am flying from Amsterdam to Fort Lauderdale with 1 stop at Detroit Airport. I am travelling with Delta (KLM) DL 135 arriving 1,41 p.m. at Detroit and next flyght to Fort Lauderdale is 4 p.m. with DL 1804. Do I have enough time for this transfer, must I pick up my Luggage first and then customs and where dropping luggage. . Which court must I go to. Thank you for your answer..
Court must be concourse must I go to. Sorry for the mistake.
That is plenty of time. Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate on Concourse A.
Hi All booked thru Virgin Atlantic; Got 1hr 30 mins to clear customs and collect luggage, re-check and board Virgin flight to Tampa. How tricky is this going to be and will it be enough time? Landing DTW at 1350 and flight leaving for Tampa at 1530?
It should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
