Hi I'm flying on a Friday 12:15 pm flat out of McNamara terminal to Pellston , MI
If I'm staying at La Quintal Airport near there, how much time should I allow from hotel, check in, check a bag, security and get to gate? Flying out on Delta Regional jet.
I would leave the hotel around 10:45 if they have a shuttle then. No later than 10:55.
I'll be traveling multiple times this year to DTW and returning home on late night Sunday flights. My first flight home is 9:55pm on a Sunday. I also have TSA pre check. How early should I arrive?

Thank you!!

You should be OK getting there at 8:45-9.
I'm travelling from Yerevan to Los Angeles but I have a transit flight in Detroit 1h 38 m, but I also have a green card lottery and I think that I have to hand over all the documents and pass through all the procedures. Will 1h 38m be enough for that?
Yes, that should be enough time. However, I do want to confirm - what airlines are you flying?
DTW doesn't have a "Terminal A". I assume you mean the McNamara Terminal? The lines are usually short. They're a bit longer in the morning through. I would plan on walking through the doors at about 7.
Hi, I'm flying tomorrow from SFO to DTW, arrive at 4.40, for a 5.25 flight on to LOG... is 45 min enough for an easy transfer? Do you know the gate locations, or are they all close on Delta? Will try to carry my bag... thanks for any help!
There is no such airport as "LOG". Do you mean Boston Logan airport (BOS)? If so both flights will be on Concourse A of the McNamara Terminal. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
My flight leaves on June 7 Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. Does anybody know if there's big delays to check in threw security I have a handbag thanks.
Detroit does not have long security lines.
Thanks ZAP
IS TSA pre check open today in north terminal?
Hi, my parents have flights from New York to Incheon connecting Detoirt. Do they have to find their baggage at DTW?
If both flights are on Delta all they have to do on their way to Seoul is walk from their arrival gate to their departure gate.
Thanks ZAP. Appreciate!
How to find my gate - traveling delta connecting from Narita Int. Airport to Manila Ninoy Aquino Int. Airport
Are you asking about a connection at NRT? If so all Delta flights are in the same area and you just have to walk to your departure gate.
Hi there, we have one and a half hours transfer time arriving from AMS with a Delta flight and leaving for TPA with a Delta flight. Will that be enough to go through all the obliged steps at DTW with 3 persons considering it will be our first time at DTW??
It's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Thans ZAP we ll be prepared
