I have a 43 minute layover between flights. They are both Delta. Would this be in the same terminal? Is this even possible?
Yes, all Delta and Delta Connection flights are in the McNamara Terminal. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
I arrive Wednesday Sept 20 on Delta at 11:30a and depart on United at 12:30p. Will I have enough time to change terminals to make my flight? No checked bags. Thank you
That's only enough time if you time the shuttle exactly perfectly. It doesn't run frequently.
I am travelling from Manchester NH on endeavor air on Oct 14flight DL 5319 stopping in Detroit with a plane change and then continuing to Seattle on a Delta plane on flight 2787. Approximately how far apart are the gates that are used by Endeavor and Delta for this flight? How much time will it take me to make the change?

On the return, Delta made a flight change and there is only 40 minutes between flights. I will be flying out of SFO on Delta flight 2520 to Detroit and then on to Manchester on an Endeavor plane which is Delta flight # 5316. I originally had a full hour between flights. Now I am concerned about the shortened time to change planes. How easy is it for an inexperienced traveler to make that plane/airline change? Are the two planes near each other? Are they in the same section of the terminal? Please give me as specific answer as possible, understanding that specific gates are not assigned this far in advance.
The Manchester flight will use concourse A or B and the Seattle flight will use Concourse A. You should have enough time. It's a very easy terminal to navigate.
Hi, I will flight from Mexico to PA, with a connection in Detroit of 1:58. Do you think that is enough time to catch the connection on time?

I depart same day delta 4994 from Detroit to Albany New York 3:25PM. What is departure terminal? How far from arrival terminal to departure terminal ? Do I have enough time? Thank you
All Delta flights are in the McNamara Terminal. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate which should take less than 10 minutes.
All DELTA, domestic and international? My flights in Delta SFO to Detroit, then Detroit to Montreal show different terminals. 1st flight arrives at Terminal 1, second flight leaves from Terminal EM. Please clarify?
Hi I am catching a flight from St Louis to Detroit that lands at 9:23pm - I then have to catch a flight to London Heathrow at 10:33. Is this enough time?

Yes, if both flights are on Delta all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate. You have enough time.
Great - thanks - they are both Delta.
My final destination is Nashville fro UK
I land in Detroit at 1610hrs Terminal M
My connecting flight is at 1730hrs
Do I need to clear customs at Detroit ?
Do I have enough time to get to connecting flight as I am not sure what terminal I have to get to
Yes, in Detroit 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. If your flight to Nashville is on Delta both flights are in the same terminal.
Hi I will be flying in from the UK to Detroit at 1:20 pm and have 1 hour 21mins connection time to Get to St Louis .

Will I have enough time to get through immigration and to my next flight? I will only have carry on luggage.
With only carry-ons you should be OK if the flight from the UK is on-time.
Thankyou for your help

I am flying from Grand Rapids to Detroit, then making a connection within 1.5 hours for Amsterdam. Will the flight from GR to Detroit be at the McNamara terminal? I am worried that I have to find a shuttle to McNamara when I land in Detroit. Thank you.
Yes, both flights will be in the McNamara Terminal. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.
