  • Connecting from international to domestic with 1 hour and 38 min layov
    May 23, 2016
    Hi, I'm flying from Munich, Germany to Tampa, FL with a 1 hour and 38 minute layover in DTW. Will it be possible to make this connection with that amount of time?


    It's possible but doesn't leave much time to spare if there are any delays.


  • 1 hour 20 minutes

    I'm flying into DTW from Manila. I have an hour and 20 minutes to get on plane to CMH. Both planes are Delta. Is an hour and 20 minutes enough time to get on connecting plane?


    It's possible but it is below the recommended International to domestic connection time.

    Hi, I'm flying on delta flight from Montreal to Seoul with a connection in Detroit (YUL - DTW - ICN). Layover time is 1h 28m. Is it enough?


    Yes. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Detroit is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • HPN to DTW to SAT

    I have 44 minutes to change flights, will that be enough time?


    Yes, that is enough time if your flight from White Plains is on-time.


  • layover time 51 minutes, Denver-Syracuse
    May 17, 2016
    Have a flight with just 51 minute layover. Usually don't like to run that tight. By looks of searching it should work. Ideas? Not many options .


    Assuming both flights are Delta, Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in the McNamara Terminal.


  • Enough Transit Time for Connecting Flight?
    May 17, 2016
    I am coming on Delta flight from Lexington and going to paris on Delta flight and have layover time of 55 minutes. Is it good enough time to catch connecting flight?


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


  • Hi! Flying delta connecting DTW to Narita Japan -where is my gate?
    May 12, 2016
    Hi! Flying delta connecting DTW to Narita Japan -how to find my gate


    Your departure gate to Tokyo will be on the A concourse of the McNamara Terminal.


    Pretty easy location to find, I believe. It looks like it's gone from a few different gates recently, but it will likely be toward in the middle of McNamara A. If your arrival at DTW is on either far end of A there is a tram to take to the center. Otherwise the walk isn't normally far and there is plenty of shopping/food to waste time if you need to. Have fun on the 747.


  • 35 minute layover

    Hello, I am flying from Chicago Midway to Frankfurt Germany with a 35 minute layover in Detroit. Will I make my connecting flight?


    Yes, you can make it if your flight from Midway is on-time. Both gates should be in the A concourse of the McNamara Terminal as long as they are both on Delta.

    Yes, all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both on Concourse A of the McNamara terminal.


  • Sprint time?
    May 1, 2016
    Am flying delta from SAT and connecting in DTW to CLT...and have 40 min between tentative landing and departure...how fast should I prep to run between gates (I've never flown thru DTW before)?


    That should be enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • Concourse for connecting flight
    May 2, 2016
    Hi, I am flying in on Delta to Detroit for the 1st time and connecting to Indianapolis. May I know which Concourse the flight will land and which Concourse the connecting flight will be? Will appreciate if you could share where to collect luggage and check them in again. Thank you so much.


    Where are you flying to Detroit from? I can't answer your question without that information.


    I am flying in to Detroit from Narita, Japan.


    You will arrive in the McNamara Terminal concourse A, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate, which will likely also be in Concourse A of the McNamara Terminal.


  • 30 minute connection time

    we arrive on delta from Grr to Detroit and have 30 minutes to get on next flight to tampa. Will we make it? Will they get our luggage transferred to the other plane in time?


    It's possible. It obviously leaves no time to spare if the flight from Grand Rapids is delayed.


  • EM
    Apr 25, 2016
    My connecting flight is listed as going out of EM terminal. What does that mean. The arriving flight says M, I get that, but not EM.


    The McNamara Terminal is "EM" in Delta parlance. The M you see on the first flight likely refers to the first flight. All Delta flights use the McNamara Terminal at DTW


    Thank you Zap


  • Connection from UK to Nashville
    Apr 20, 2016
    I am arriving in DTW from the UK at 1:50pm and then flying out to Nashville at 3:20pm - is this sufficient time for my connection considering I have to go through customs, collect my baggage & check in again?


    Ooops, I forgot to mention that the flight from the UK is Virgin Atlantic and the ongoing flight is with Delta. I believe that both airlines operate out of the McNamara terminal.


    Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Thanks ZAP, fingers crossed all goes smoothly!!


  • 1 Hr 15 mins layover, Enough time??
    Apr 17, 2016
    Hi, I'm having from Cincinnati to DTW and have a 1hr 15 min layover until my next flight , which is ICN Seoul. Is that enough or I shoose the one with 2h and 51 mins. Thanks


    That is plenty of time. All you have to do in Detroit is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Choose the 2hr and 51 min layover. Customs is a pain in DTW.


    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. Please ignore the previous poster.
