Arriving AMS on Delta and leaving for Orlando on Delta. Delta have given us 1hr 48 min to make the connection. Anything we can do to prepare or help to have more chance to make the connection? Thanks. Kevin
Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am picking someone up tomorrow who is flying Frontier. Do I need to go to McNamara terminal to pick them up? Thank you!
No, Frontier uses the North Terminal.
Thank you!
We are a family from the UK travelling to the States for the first time. We have ESTA approval can we use the automated passport control? I read somewhere that you couldn't if it is your first visit. Any advice?
That is correct. You cannot use the APC if it is your first time entering the US on ESTA.
I am flying from AMS and would like to check my bag. I have a 1 hr 25 min layover in Detroit before my flight to SDF. Is that enough time to complete the customs process with a checked bag?
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
how far is gate a-35 from gate b11?
about 10 minutes. B is connected to A by an underground pedestrian tunnel.
Is 30 minutes enough time to get from gate B4 to gate A31?
we land at 2:54 and our 2nd flight takes off at 3:30
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. B is connected to A by an underground pedestrian tunnel.
Hi,

Is 1 hour enough time to make a connection for the following dates:
1) Outgoing - July 15 - Arriving from JFK to Detroit Wayne County @ 19:23, departing for Elmira @ 20:35 (1hr12)
2) Return - July 29 - Arriving from Elmira to Detroit Wayne County @ 14:50, departing @ 15:55 (1he05)

Also, I'm flying from Ireland into JFK, then Detroit and finally Elmira & visa versa, will my baggage be checked through for the internal US connecting flights?

Many thanks

MM
Yes, your bags will be checked through both ways. All you have to do in Detroit is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have enough time.
Is 48 minutes enough time to get from C16 to A75? Do I have to go through security again?
Yes, that is enough time. No you don't have to go through security again. B and C are connected to A by a pedestrian tunnel.
Thank you!!
We have a 38 minute layover at DTW. We will come coming into Gate B7 and leaving out of gate A8. Is that enough time to make the connection? Thanks!
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time.
We are traveling from LA to Paris connecting in DTW, delta and airfrance. we have only 55 min connecting. do we have to claim & recheck our bags? is 55 min enough?
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. 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.
Thank you,
