fll-dtw-nrt on delta flights. is 40mins layover enough? how far are the gates because i'm a senior citizen. might not make it on time. what are the gate numbers for arrival
and departure? how long before delta close their gates for boarding?
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. Both flights will be on Concourse A of the McNamara Terminal. You don't find out your exact gates until the day of your flight but the flight to Tokyo will depart from the middle of the concourse.
Arriving from mke going to phx is 30 minutes enough time to connect flights
If both flights are on Delta that is just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Do I have enough time? Both are Delta flights - I think coming in at A40 and departing from A74.
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Getting connecting flight coming from Heathrow going to Nashville 2hour stop over, can i go out for a cigarette?
That's probably not enough time, although you will already be outside security after you clear customs and re-check your bags.
I am flying into DTW Gate A33 (Delta) tomorrow morning - scheduled to arrive at 6:40am. I have a connection at Gate A75 (Also Delta) scheduled to leave at 7:10. That's only 30 minutes. Is this enough time?
Yes, that's possible if the first flight is on-time.
Flight lands in Detroit from Dallas at 2:51; departs for Amsterdam at 3:51. Is this enough time? How far apart are the gates? Do we collect luggage or is it checked through?
If both flights are on Delta then both gates will be on concourse A of the McNamara Terminal and all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
Arriving on Delta and have 45 layover need to get from A76 to A28. Enough time?
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time.
I am flying from Orlando to Las Vegas, connecting in Detroit. The connection time is 30 mins. We are flying with Spirit airlines and will have a checked bag. Do we need to collect and re check bag? Is 30 minutes completely unrealistic?
You do not have to claim and re-check your bag if both flights are on the same reservation. The connection is possible if the flight from Orlando is on-time.
Thanks for this!
I have a 56m layover at DTW.Coming from Nashville ,going to Japan. All are Delta flights.Where do i do immigration and is there enough time ?
There is no US Immigration when leaving the US. You will go through Japanese Immigration in Japan. You have enough time. All you have to do in Detroit is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Arriving spirit airlines gate d11 @ 10:43 can I make it to gate d14 departing at 11:15?
Yes, that's possible if the first flight is on-time. Walking between the two gates will take like 2 minutes.
