  • Connection from AMS to ORD
    Nov 7, 2016

    Hi I will be flying from Delhi to Chicago. My first stop is AMS, enough layover time. My second stop in Detroit Airport. I have 1.5 hrs in Detroit. I believe I have to clear US customs and pick my luggage and drop it off for the flight from Detroit to Chicago. Is that correct? If yes do I have enough time to clear customs, pick up luggage, drop it off and clear security?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if the flight from Amsterdam is on-time.

    Hi, I will be travelling from Montreal (YUL) to (DTW) to (LAX) with 58 minutes of layover time for connection.on wed, nov 9. Is the connection easy and do I have enough time? Thanks

     

    (With Delta airline)

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Detroit is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate both in the McNamara Terminal. You have enough time as long as the flight from Montreal is somewhere close to on-time.

     

  • Connection at Detroit on flight from Ottawa to Amsterdam (by Delta)

    Hi! I'm having a short stopover at Detroit (about 1 hour) on my flight from Ottawa to Amsterdam. Both flight sectors Ottawa-Detroit and Detroit- AMS are operated by Delta. Can I check-in my luggage to Amsterdam at Ottawa or do I need to claim it at Detroit and re-check it again? The stopover is short, I'm afraid I won't make it if I need to go through passport control, customs and check-in again. Thank you!

     

    You will check your bags in Ottawa after you go through US Immigration and Customs Preclearance. You will not have to do anything with your bags in Detroit on your way to Amsterdam. All you have to do in Detroit on your way to Amsterdam is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.

     

    Thank you for a prompt reply!

     

    Hello! We are arriving to Detroit from LHR around 13:30 and then have a connection to Des Moines but not until 20:12...are we allowed to leave the airport?

    Arriving on Delta flight in Detroit at 11:12 am and need to catch a Delta flight at 12:05 pm. Delta agent says this is enough time as both flights are in the same terminal. I'm very nervous that it is not enough time.

     

    Yes, if the first flight is domestic that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from one gate to the other gate.

    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 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.

    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!
