Im flying spirit my layover is 50 minutes in Detroit where do I board Spirit airlines or do I stay on the same plane? I
Where is smoking permitted? i.e. Bar, cafe, before tsa security check, outside only, certain terminals, etc
Outside only.
Anyone have experience going through a security checkpoint with cats (or other animals in kennels) at DTW?
I'm flying from New Orleans to Minnesota with a 50 minutes lay over (spirit). In Detroit will I have to board another plane and check in again and go through security?
If both flights are on the same reservation you just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Travelling AMS-DTW-MCO in October, arriving DTW about 12.30 pm I have
1hr40 to clear immigration, security etc, before next flight to MCO.
Is this enough time, 1 ticket with Delta, thanks?
Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.
how can a go from gates B to gates A
There is a pedestrian tunnel that connects A and B. It takes less than 5 minutes.
I have no flying experience, nor have I ever been to DTW. my connecting flight is at DTW. There is 59 minutes between one flight arriving and another flight leaving. Its domestic flights at both ends. is 59 minutes enough?
If both flights are on Delta that's enough time.
I have a one hour layover at DTW on a trip destined for YYZ (Toronto). Same terminal. Do I go through customs in DTW or YYZ?
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You will go through Canadian immigration and customs in Toronto. If the first flight is domestic, all you do in Detroit is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I'm flying from Chicago to Detroit (DTW) where I have a 58m layover before my flight to Tokyo departs. Will I have enough time between flights?

Please help me what to do.

Just because a flight was delayed once this week does not mean your flight next week will also be delayed. If the flight to Detroit is going to be delayed and you know ahead of time on the day of your flight, you can ask Delta if they can rebook you on the Atlanta flight.
