  • Delta Flight Connection
    Jul 5, 2016
    I am wondering if 48 minutes is enough time for a layover flight. I am flying from Nashville to Detroit with a 48 Minute layover until my connecting flight to Minneapolis leaves. Any help would be appreciated.


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which shouldn't take more than 10-15 minutes.

    I have a 37 minute layover and need to go from gate C6 to A-20 will I have enough time?


    Yes, that should be enough time. concourses B and C are connected to A inside security by a short underground tunnel.


  • Delta connection at DTW

    I will be having a 1h30mins layover at DTW. I will be arriving from NRT and flying to MDW. Will it be enough time to clear my student visa/visitor passport and re-check in?


    You will already be checked in for both flights. in DTW you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security. You should have just enough time if your flight from Tokyo is on-time.

    Hi I am flying in on Virgin from London Heathrow,first time with family in America and then connecting to Orlando with delta 1hr 9mins turn around time.is this possible, my daughter is disabled and uses a wheelchair.


    No, that is not a legal International to Domestic connection time, even at an uncongested airport like DTW. You need at least 90 minutes.


    Thanks zap I have spoken to Virgin and they say the minimum time is 45mins for a connection.


    That is completely wrong. Whoever you are talking to clearly doesn't understand the procedures for entering the US.

    Flying from Cincinnati on Delta and connecting with Virgin Atlantic to London . What is the minumum connection time that is easily doable for someone using a cane?


    45 minutes is doable, but I'd prefer an hour.

  • SFO - DTW - MUC
    Jun 13, 2016
    Hi, I am flying to MUC from SFO via DTW. My layover is 1 hour. Is this enough time? Is there any trick that can improve my chances if things go wrong (i.e., can the crew call the other plane to wait for me)?


    Both Delta. Is a general practice to wait for passengers? Is statistically this flight generally delayed?


    They do not hold flights. Detroit is an uncongested airport and it will only take you 10 minutes tops to get from your arrival gate to your departure gate, so you shouldn't have trouble with this connection unless something goes seriously wrong.


  • Detroit to Amsterdam
    Jun 7, 2016
    Hi, I am considering booking a flight Kansas City-Detroit-Amsterdam on Friday, November 11, but the layover in Detroit is 1 hour 24 minutes. Would that be enough time? Thank you!


    Yes, that is enough time. You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Detroit.


    Thank you!


  • AMS -> DTW -> CAK
    Jun 6, 2016
    Hi. I'm traveling from Amsterdam to Akron via Detroit. I have 2 hours transfertime available, is that sufficient? I've traveled via Atalanta last year and missed the domestic flight with 2.5 hours transfer time. US Customs / immigration took 2 hours alone on that trip, so I am a little worried about the setup in Detroit or a faster process could be expected. Thanks in advance. Thomas


    Detroit usually is much faster. That should be enough time.

Do I have enough time for this transfer, must I pick up my Luggage first and then customs and where dropping luggage. . Which court must I go to. Thank you for your answer..


    Court must be concourse must I go to. Sorry for the mistake.


    That is plenty of time. Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate on Concourse A.
