  • Intl to Dom connection time
    Sep 8, 2016
    Flying in from Toronto and then taking a domestic flight. Is 1 hr 15 mins enough time


    Yes, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. If both flights are on Delta you have enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    We are flying from Paris, France to the USA via Air France and have only 1.5 hours to clear customs before catching our final flight (Delta) to Lincoln, NE. Do we have enough time or would it be wiase to just have carry on luggage?


    That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Thank you


  • International -> domestic connections

    I will be arriving on a Delta international flight and connecting to a Delta domestic flight. Is 1 hour 45 minutes enough time for the transfer?


    Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    37min connection between arrival from BTV and departure to IND. I can NOT miss the connection. Assuming no plane delays is this too tight? I usually assume 45min requirement for DTW connections.


    It's possible. Connections at DTW are pretty easy.


  • Transfer time - arrive from SLC, deart to London Heathrow
    Aug 30, 2016
    I will be travelling from Salt Lake City to London Heathrow via Detroit. It's a codeshare flight. The inbound flight is Delta, the outbound flight Virgin Atlantic. I have 70 minutes for the transfer. What is the procedure - do I have to get my bags and check them in again? I will have checked in online. I am worried 70 minutes is not enough. The whole journey was booked via Virgin Atlantic


    Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.


  • Connecting flight from yyz to Dtw to BHS with 1 hour
    Aug 30, 2016
    My son is traveling for the first time on his own and has a 1 hour connection time from an international flight on Endeavour Air DBA Delta to BHM on Skywest DBA Delta. Will he have enough time and is it a confusing connection?We are also wondering if he will have to go through customs since YYZ has a US preflight customs.


    He will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All he has to do in Detroit is go from his arrival gate to his departure gate. This is a very easy connection.


  • Connecting flight from dtw to den
    Aug 25, 2016
    We are flying from PLN to DTW on Sky West Connect flight 7426 arrival time about 8a.m. the departure time is 8:36a.m. flight 1511 to DEN. Will it be in the same terminal? How do I find info on that? Times are real close. Eeks.


    Yes, both flights will be in the McNamara Terminal. You will arrive in concourse B or C (likely C) and depart from Concourse A. They are connected inside security by an underground walkway. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Enough time to change planes?
    Aug 25, 2016
    Hi, I am flying from London Heathrow to Toronto, via Detroit Metro. I have 1.5 hours to change planes, is this enough time and do I need to clear customs? Any advice on the transit would be appreciated. Thanks


    All you need to clear customs is a passport. As for the connection, this will be very tight. In all likelihood, this is not enough time to catch your flight unless your plane from London is early. If you miss your flight in DTW, Delta will rebook you on the next flight to Toronto. (I'm assuming that this is booked on one ticket through Delta. If not, let me know)


    1.5 hours is usually sufficient for an International to International connection at DTW.


  • Delta Fl. #2808 , Delta Fl. #136 to Amsterdam connection
    Aug 16, 2016
    Is one hour enough to transfer between flights?


    If the first flight is domestic and on-time, yes, that is enough time.

    Aug 13, 2016
    I bought a round trip ticket delta 952 delta 473 delta 275 delta 276 delta 1906 that is dca to nyc then nyc to narita then narita to manila. my luggage went straight to manila. How come on my way back now I have to claim my luggage at Detroit for a flight back to BWI?


    You have to claim your bags in Detroit on the way back from Manila in order to clear US Customs with your bags at your point of entry.


  • LAX - DTW - Amsterdam Delta
    Aug 13, 2016
    We arrive in DTW at 7:09pm and need to catch our connecting international flight by 8:22pm. Both flights are Delta. Is 1 hours and 13 mins (73 minutes) enough time or would we miss our flight? A little worried here.


    Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do in DTW is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both on Concourse A of the McNamara Terminal.


  • International Flight Connection at DTW

    Hi we are traveling from MCI (KC) to DTW then to CDG (Paris) via Air France. Our layover time is 1h31 at DTW. It says the arrival flight to DTW and departing flight from DTW arrive at Terminal EM. Do we have to go through security upon arrival to DTW or just find our next gate?


    All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will check in with Delta in Kansas City. You won't find an Air France desk anywhere in Kansas City. You have plenty of time.


    Thank you so much ZAP!


  • From Mco to DTw and on to LHR

    Hi we fly in to DTw and have 1 hour until our next flight to lhr. Is that enough time?


    Yes, all you have to do in Detroit is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Hi Scotch. We're doing the same next month and I'm wondering how your transfer went; was there enough time and did you have to collect baggage or was it transferred automatically? Regards.


  • Terminal Question
    Aug 1, 2016
    I am flying into Detroit on Delta , only an 43 mins between flights, Is that enough time to make a connecting delta flight to San Antonio?


    If you are flying into Detroit on a domestic flight, yes, that is enough time.


    Thank you, yes, I am flying in from Hartford, CT. I have never been to that airport, so a little worried not having a long layover


    It's a very simple layout.

    I am flying BTV - DTW - SAN i only have 34 minutes in Detroit will I make my flight?


    It's enough time if the flight from Burlington is on-time. Obviously there's no time to spare if it's not.


    Is it in the same terminal - just walk to gate?? Not sure how on time the BTV flight is to DTW... :-[


    Yes, all Delta flights are in the McNamara Terminal. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
