Yes, that should be plenty of time.
Sorry ZaP. I just have written a message but I forgot to give my e-mail address. I repeat. I have to fly from amsterdam to Detroit on the 18th of February and then transfer to the plane to Fort Lauderdale. My Flightnumber is: DL 135 and I will arrive normally at 13.50 hours Then I must have to go to another concourse to fort Lauderdale . Flight number DL 1704 leaving Detroit at 16.00 hours. Till so far no problems. But to-day with the same flight from Amsterdam the plane had a delay cause it leaves Amsterdam at 13.01 p.m. and will arrivé at Detroit at 15.11 hours !!! I have to get the cruiseship in fort Lauderdale which leaves next day at exact 16.00 hours P.M. What I have to do then. It happens frequently that planes have a delay in Amsterdam. Please help me!!!
Delta had a major computer failure yesterday that caused delays today, these are abnormal. You should have enough time.

Thank you Zap. I am relieved now. Thank you very much.
I am still thinking that when it happens that I have a delay coming from Amsterdam to Detroit so not to be in time to get my next flight to Fort Lauderdale, because many delays here in Amsterdam because of fog. What is then the procedure to get me and my husband in time in Fort Lauderdale for the cruiseship, which leaves next day at 16.00 hours sharp. We are travelling both flights with Delta. Last weeks I saw regularly delays in Amsterdam for Delta Flights to Atlanta and Detroit. Thank you in advance ZAP
I am flying from LAX to Ottawa via DTW with only a 48min connection. is it enough time to make it and should I clear customs in DTW before boarding? I am traveling with anther adult and a child. thank you
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You go through Canadian Immigration and Customs when you get to Ottawa. All you have to do in Detroit is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thank you! does this mean that 48min are enough to make the connection?
Yes, it should be.
I have a flight from LAX to DTW, and then DTW to Amsterdam. Is 1 hour enough time to make my connecting flight?
Yes, that is enough time. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Concourse A of the McNamara Terminal. Assuming both flights are on Delta.
I will be flying from Frankfurt to Toronto (YYZ) with a 4 hour layover in Detroit. Both flights are with Delta. Will I have to pick up my checked bag in Detroit - or will the airline transfer it to me?
What airlines are you flying?
All flights are with Delta
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. Everything is in the McNamara Terminal. You have plenty of time.
I am arriving iDTW @11;19 am on Delta and leaving at 12pm on Delta on 1/19. Is there enough time for connecting to my next flight?
If the first flight is domestic that is just enough time if the first flight is on-time, but leaves no time to spare if it's not.
We have 1.37 hours from landing from Amsterdam before our flight to Orlando, we are English, will this be enough time?
Yes, that should be enough time if the flight from Amsterdam is on-time.
I came from Ottawa at 9:10 a.m to Detroit at 10:00a.m and my connection time is only 50min to change air plane one Delta to another Delta airline. Do you think is it enough time to transit?
Regards,
Tim
Yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ottawa. All you have to do in Detroit is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in the McNamara Terminal.
A 4/7/17 flight arrives in Detroit at 7:49 am (Delta ExpressJet) and the connecting flight is at 8;25 am on Delta. Is there sufficient time for the connection?
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
