Hi, I will be travelling from Montreal (YUL) to (DTW) to (LAX) with 58 minutes of layover time for connection.on wed, nov 9. Is the connection easy and do I have enough time? Thanks
(With Delta airline)
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Detroit is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate both in the McNamara Terminal. You have enough time as long as the flight from Montreal is somewhere close to on-time.
Hi! I'm having a short stopover at Detroit (about 1 hour) on my flight from Ottawa to Amsterdam. Both flight sectors Ottawa-Detroit and Detroit- AMS are operated by Delta. Can I check-in my luggage to Amsterdam at Ottawa or do I need to claim it at Detroit and re-check it again? The stopover is short, I'm afraid I won't make it if I need to go through passport control, customs and check-in again. Thank you!
You will check your bags in Ottawa after you go through US Immigration and Customs Preclearance. You will not have to do anything with your bags in Detroit on your way to Amsterdam. All you have to do in Detroit on your way to Amsterdam is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
Thank you for a prompt reply!
Hello! We are arriving to Detroit from LHR around 13:30 and then have a connection to Des Moines but not until 20:12...are we allowed to leave the airport?
Arriving on Delta flight in Detroit at 11:12 am and need to catch a Delta flight at 12:05 pm. Delta agent says this is enough time as both flights are in the same terminal. I'm very nervous that it is not enough time.
Yes, if the first flight is domestic that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from one gate to the other gate.
I will be flying on Delta from YUL (Montreal) to MEX (Mexico city) with a 55 minute connection in DTW. I will be checking one bag. Is it enough and how would the transfer process be like? Will I be pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Montreal ? Thank you in advance
