    I am flying into Detroit May 8 on Delta 1700 and connecting to Delta 3900 in 41 minutes, is there enough time?


    That should be enough time, but I suggest you double check your flight numbers. I show that on May 8, 2015, Delta 1700 is an Atlanta-Boston flight and Delta 3900 is a Pittsburgh-Detroit flight.


  • UK to DTW connecting through to MCO - all Delta

    Got an offer with a 2hr 15mins connection Family of 4 and obviously will have to go through immigration Is this enough time? How tight could it be?


    That should be enough time. DTW is a very simple and generally uncongested airport.


    Thanks - Even with the time it takes to clear US Immigration?

    I am arriving at DTW from Seoul, before connecting to a domestic flight to Boston. Is a 1hr50min connection enough time to go through US immigration and take my bags through customs before the next flight?


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • YYZ to SEA via DTW, 55min layover
    Mar 18, 2015
    I'm flying from YYZ to SEA via DTW with all Delta airlines. I will taking Delta 5309 from YYZ to DTW and Delta 1282 from DTW to SEA. Is the time of 55min for the layover enough time to me? Do I need to claim baggage in DTW?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Detroit is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Nothing with baggage. You have enough time.


  • 1.25 connecting time
    Mar 18, 2015
    I'm a non US citizen, and I have 1.25 connecting time from an international flight to a domestic flight, in the EM terminal. Do you believe it is enough ? Thanks in advance for your reply. Rgs


    That is 5 minutes below the recommended time but you should be OK if your first flight is on-time.

    I should have said that he's flying on Delta.

    My son will be traveling in the unaccompanied minor program connecting through Detroit. He arrives on flight 4726 and has 40 minutes to get on flight 6292. Is that enough time?


    That should be enough time if the first flight is on-time. It leaves very little time to spare if it is not.


  • Domestic to international, is 51 minutes long enough?
    Mar 2, 2015
    Will fly in DTW in a small Delta plane and connect to Delta international flight. Is 51 minutes long enough to make the connection? Thanks!


    Yes, that should be enough time as long as the first flight is on-time.


  • what happens if missed connection
    Mar 2, 2015
    my connection is 35 min. i know it's very tight and no room for delays. i'm praying it arrives on time and i run but what if my first delta flight is delayed. will delta ensure i am placed on a later flight?


    You will be placed on the next available flight. However, due to schedules the next available flight may either require an overnight stay in Detroit or an additional connection.


    thanks! how much time does it take to get from terminal C to terminal A. Hypothetically Gate C27 to Gate A60


    C and A are just two concourses in the McNamara Terminal. It would take no more than 15 minutes to get between them. The gates at the far end of C are no longer used BTW.


  • Delta to Endeavor gates. First time teen flyer, 51 mins?
    Feb 28, 2015
    I know that Endeavor is Delta's regional partner, and that they are both in McNamara terminal. How difficult is it to get from a Delta gate to an Endeavor gate? Layer is 51 minutes, 16yo first time flyer. Thanks!


    Yes, that should be enough time. just follow the signs between gates. All gates in the McNamara terminal can be reached within 15 mins.


  • Layover time...
    Feb 25, 2015
    Hi! I am flying into DTW from a small airport (gate usually at the opposite end of terminal:() my layover is 30 min. Will they hold the connecting flight for me or is this enough time? Who do I speak with to find out...on flight stewards or in airport agent?


    They generally do not hold flights for anybody. There is nobody who you can talk to. The only people who can hold a flight are the dispatcher (who is located in an office in Atlanta) or the gate agent of the flight you are boarding - and if you can talk to her you might as well actually get on the plane.


    So that isn't enough time?


    It's enough time if your first flight is on-time or early and you run.


  • Flying from LHR - PHX via DTW (Virgin/Delta)
    Feb 24, 2015
    Hi, I am flying from LHR to PHX via DTW and have a 2.15hr stopover connection - does anyone know, is this enough time to get through Non-US Immigration, pick up luggage, go through Customs, re-check luggage, go to departures, go through security and then get to the next plane? I am female and travelling alone so don't want to miss my connection


    Yes, that should be enough time.


    Thanks for letting me know

    Is a 1.5 hour layover enough time to get from Delta Terminal in McNamara to the United Terminal in North? No checked luggage. Just carry on. Do you have to go through security again when you get to North?


    Yes, you will have to go through security again, and you will have to take a shuttle between the terminals. The Shuttle doesn't run very frequently. However, if you check in online for your United flight before you leave on your Delta flight, I think you should have enough time.


  • enough time ?
    Feb 18, 2015
    I just found out our plane that leaves CWA is only 50 seats or less and our carry on bags has to go where the checked bags go because of lack of room on the plane. We only have 40 minutes to get our carry ons and go from concourse B or C and go through the tunnel to concourse A and to find our gate. Is that enough time to make our flight? Does the airline call ahead to say were coming if it is getting close to taking off?


    The agent of the second flight knows who is a connecting passenger and what the status of their flight is on his or her computer. That should be enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    Looking at maybe booking this flight: Virgin Atlantic from London Heathrow to DTW, then Delta from DTW to O'Hare. Is 2 hours enough stopover time to go through immigration, customs, etc, and make the next flight to Chicago?


    Yes, that should be enough time.
