Our daughter will fly from Phoenix with KLM to Detroit Wednesday next week with connecting flight to Amsterdam (KLM). Which terminal will she need to go to for Amsterdam.

Both flights will be on Delta and be in the McNamara Terminal concourse A. All she has to do in Detroit is go from her arrival gate to her departure gate.
Flying into DTW from CDG, then on to BWI June 3. First time taking this path. Is 2.5 hours enough time to pass through customs, immigration? All flights on Delta, do I have to claim bag and recheck from DTW to BWI?
Yes, that is enough time. 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, go through security and to your departure gate.
Hello. I have a connecting flight from Toronto to Manila with a 1 hour and 23 minutes layover. Do you think that is enough? Do I need to pass through in the immigration? Thanks.
There is no US Immigration when leaving the US and you will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Toronto. So all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Detroit. if both flights are on Delta you have enough time.
Flights with Delta for BUF - DTW - CVG with checked bags; layover at DTW 48 minutes.
Do I have to do anything with my checked bags? DO I have enough time to change flights?
You don't have to do anything with your checked bags. Just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in the McNamara Terminal. You have enough time if the flight from Buffalo is on-time.
I will be arriving at DWT from FRA at 13:05 and final destination flight is to ORD at 14:10 all on a Saturday in September. The original connection time was 16:25 but airline cancelled and made the change. Is that enough time to claim luggage, go through customs, and make the flight to ORD?
if both flights are on Delta that is still enough time.
I will be flying from FRA on Lufthansa to ORD on an United Express. Does this still allow for enough time?
I have a one hour and forty six minutes connecting in Detroit from richmond to shanghai will I make it in time?
Just to clarify we are flying Delta
Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the way to Shanghai.
Will be arriving on Delta from IND with a 2 hour layover in DTW. I am going to ICN (Korea) on Delta but is a Korean Airlines Flight. Will I need to go thru security again or will I be able to just go gate to gate. Delta 951 in out Delta 159 .
If both flights are on the same reservation you can just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
My grandparent and I will be flying from MSP to DTW with a 39 min layover, then DTW to PIT. Will this be enough time to make the last leg? Thank you!!
Just wanted to clarify: we are flying on Delta Airlines the entire trip.
Yes, that is enough time but doesn't leave much time to spare in case the first flight is delayed.
HI, I'm flying with Delta from San Francisco (SFO) to Boston (BOS) with a connection at DTW Detroit wayne county. I have ac checked baggage and the layover is 35 mins.
1. Would this much is sufficient to change flight ?
2. The Baggage would be transferred by Delta or do i need to get it and recheck in ?
3. Would there be additional security check again?
4. Are there chances that checked baggage may get delayed because of short layover?
That is just enough time if the first flight is on-time. You won't have to do anything with your bags or go through security in Detroit. Yes, there is a chance your bags won't make the connection because it is so short.
Thanks for the clarification. I have checked another flight option which has 1h 34m layover in Minneapolis–Saint Paul International Airport (MSP). In this case everything should be fine with transfer , right ? and there is enough time for baggage to be transferred to another connecting flight.
Yes, that is plenty of time.
I've searched through this forum and didn't see a specific answer regarding checked baggage. I will be flying YYZ to DTW with a 50 min layover, DTW to MKE. I understand I will be pre-cleared at YYZ and will not have to go through security at DTW, but will I need to claim my bag and then recheck it before getting on my plane to MKE?
No, you don't have to do anything with your bags in Detroit. You have enough time.
