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.
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.

Hello, I have a transfer time of 1 hour 58 mins in Detroit from Seoul Korea flight to Kxiville. I think we should go through customs all together. Is it enough time ? Or I should change to time.
Yes, 1 hr 58 minutes is enough time to get through US Immigration, Customs, and Security in Detroit.
I will be flying on Delta from YUL (Montreal) to MEX (Mexico city) with a 55 minute connection in DTW. I will be checking one bag. Is it enough and how would the transfer process be like? Will I be pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Montreal ? Thank you in advance
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Detroit on your way to Mexico City is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
Hello I'll be flying Delta from Dallas to connect to a Delta flight to Nagoya, Japan. Layover is 50 minutes. Is that enough time?

Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both on concourse A of the McNamara Terminal No need to ask the same question twice.

I am flying AMS-DTW-STL on Nov 28. Is 90 min adequate layover time?
Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly. However, that is a very busy travel day, so expect crowds.
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.
Hi,
Looking into flying Delta from AMS to MSY via DTW. Transfer time 1h28m in DTW. Date: Saturday in late July 2017. Doable? All on 1 ticket, we will have checked luggage. Thanks for advice!
Yes, it's possible if the flight from Amsterdam arrives on-time. Due to the long time before your flight date, the exact schedule will probably change between now and then anyway.
Thank you!
