  • Connecting domestic Delta flight
    Oct 27, 2014
    On 10/20 : Delta Flight 1288 connecting with flight 5996 with only 38 minutes, is it doable?


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. Both flights should be on Concourse A.


    Hmmm, I've got the same question…Delta booked me into Detroit connecting to Beijing with a 46 min time layover. Is that at all realistic? I'm not disabled but have physical limits making a run out of the question. Thanks for the help…sweating this one!


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • Enough connection time for an international flight?
    Sep 22, 2014
    Arrive from BDL on Delta. One hour layover. Then Delta to GCM. Is that enough time for this international connection?


    Yes, on your way there you only have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no US immigration when leaving the US.


  • Amsterdam to Indianapolis via Detroit
    Sep 12, 2014
    I m arriving at Detroit from Amsterdam vis Delta Airlines DL0235 at 1600 hrs and my next connection flight is at 1725 hrs to Indianapolis again on Delta Airlines DL 1335. Is the connection time of 1 hour and 25 min enough.


    It is below the minimum connection time, but it's only 5 minutes below and the Delta terminal at DTW is a very simple airport so you should be OK.


  • Connecting domestic Delta flights
    Sep 11, 2014
    On Oct 1 I could be arriving on Delta DL1350 from Seattle, departing on DL2148 to LaGuardia. The layover is only 33 mins. Assuming my first flight is on time, should I have enough time to connect?


    Yes, both flights will be on the A concourse of the McNamara Terminal. Obviously you have very little buffer for delays.

    Have a 45 minute layover in DTW- is this enough time to connect with next flight to mexico?


    What airline or airlines are you flying?




  • enough time
    Sep 1, 2014
    booking a flight connecting in dtw have 51 min . what is terminal em mean


    Terminal EM is the McNamara Terminal, the terminal Delta and their skyteam partners use.


    And yes, 51 minutes should be enough time if the first flight is domestic.

    Hi, i have a flight from ord to dtw connecting to nagoya via delta air with only 1 hour layover at detroit. Do i have to get my luggage and recheck at detroit? How about security check and immigration? Thanks


    No, you do not go through US Immigration when leaving the United States. All you have to do in Detroit is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate which will likely both be on the A Concourse of the McNamara Terminal.


    Great thank you.


  • AMS-DTW-MEM via Delta
    Aug 13, 2014
    Arriving from AMS on Delta 135 at 1:35 pm Sunday and connecting to MEM on DL 5500 at 3:25 pm. Wife is in wheelchair. Is this sufficient time to make connection to MEM. Thanks.


    Yes, that should be plenty of time to make your connection.


  • 1.5 Connecting Flight MNL-DTW-LIT
    Aug 12, 2014
    I have a connecting flight in DTW from MNL (via NGO) to LIT. Will 1.5 hrs be enough time to clear immigration/customs so i can catch my flight? This is via Delta.


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. You will go through US Immigration, collect your baggage, go through US Customs, re-check your baggage with Delta, go up to the departure level and go through security. Your departure gate to LIT will probably be on the B-concourse which is connected to the A concourse by an underground tunnel.


  • YYZ (Toronto) to DTW to SFO
    Aug 11, 2014
    Hi I have a 1 hr 10 min layover in DTW. Will I need to collect and re-check my luggage in once I get to Detroit? If so, is 1 hr enough time to make it to my connecting flight to SFO? Thanks!


    You will pre-clear US Immigration in Toronto. Your arrival into DTW will be like a domestic flight. If both flights are on Delta you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate which will both be in the McNamara Terminal.


  • 54 minutes enough?
    Aug 8, 2014
    We are flying thru Detroit with a 54 minlayover (domestic flights). Is this enough time? Both flights are on Delta. Thanks.


    Yes, that should be plenty of time if your first flight is on time. All Delta flights at DTW are in the McNamara Terminal and connected inside security.


  • Which terminal
    Aug 5, 2014
    Which terminal does Canadair flights from Washington DC come into?


    Canadair is not an airline, it is a type of aircraft. Is it a Delta Connection flight? If so that will be from the McNamara Terminal. If it's another airline, such as United or US Airways it will be from the North Terminal.


  • Arriving at DTW from LAX, connection to Amsterdam
    Aug 1, 2014
    We are flying from LAX on 3rd Sept 2014 to DTW and have 39 minutes to connect on to flight to Amsterdam. All on the same Delta ticket. Do we need to collect bags or go through immigration/security or can we go straight to the next gate - will 39 mins be enough? Thanks


    You do not go through US Immigration when leaving the US. All you have to do in DTW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate which will both be on the A concourse of the McNamara Terminal. Yes, you should have enough time if your flight from LAX is on-time.


    Thank you very much, that puts my mind at ease!


  • enough time to switch and will checked bag make it onto connecting
    Jul 12, 2014
    will 40 minutes suffice to switch from domestic to international and will checked bag from domestic flight make it onto connecting international flight in the 40 minutes connection?


    That depends on which airlines you use. DTW uses the McNamara Terminal exclusively for Delta, Air France & KLM (members of SkyTeam) and the North Terminal forr non-Skky team members. If you need to transfer between terminals your transfer time would be one hour. Transfer within McNamara should be doable within 40 mins; baggage transfer time no problem. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/dtw, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


  • Cincinnati (CVG) to Detroit Detroit Metro (DTW)
    Jul 14, 2014
    I have to say this site so far is the best for information on anything flying. I've been through a lot of sites looking but I found more in 5 min here than I have 3 weeks of searching the net else were. We fly into DET from CVG on Canadair CRJ 900. We'll have 55 min once the plane lands to get to our connecting Delta flight to LAS. My wife and I are in our 60s we are seated at the from of the plane. My questions are is Canadair in the same concourse as Delta and is 55 minutes enough for us to exit the pane and get to our Delta flight. We do not have gates or any more information at this time. I've been looking through the internet to understand where Canadair is compared to the Delta hub at DET. Trying to get an idea if I need to be concerned enough to switch flights or not. We had a direct both ways but have been bounced more times than my sons soccer ball. Thanks for any help I get Mark43551


    Thanks you for your vote of confidence! At iFly we work hard to gather timely information. As DET Coleman Young AP has no longer an official site (and Detroit City lists it with address & telephone numbers only) I must assume that you Depart DET by Canadair, arriving at CVG and connecting there to Delta flight to LAS, right? While I have Air Canada listed at CVG as serving Concourse A (I presume this also goes for Canadair), Delta uses Concourse B's gates exclusively (B12-B1 left; B13-39 right. A & B Concourses are parallel-running buildings, reached by shuttle train taking 90 seconds (or by tunnel with walkway). Hope this info helps.


    Sajul im sorry I was so confusing, I flying into det on canadair and I want to know how far away the delta terminal is located compared to where we will be when I get off the canadair flight into Detroit mark43551


    Please ignore sajul's rambling and confusing and incorrect response. Delta uses DTW, not DET. Canadair is not an airline. It is a type of aircraft. Both of your flights will be on Delta. Both flights will be in the McNamara Terminal at DTW. You should have plenty of time to make your connection. All you have to do at DTW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Zap my wife and I could not be happier, this is great news. We've been really concerned since we were bumped from the direct flight that we wouldn't make the connecting flight on time. Thanks so much for straightening this out for us Zap
