    My parents are flying Delta from China. I will meet them in DTW, and 3 of us then fly to Providence on Delta again after 3 hours. Instead of dropping off their baggages after customs, could my parents just take their baggages and meet me outside the international arrival pickup place, and re-check their bags in counter? My parents don't speak English, so I am looking for the least confusing strategy for them.

     

    Delta is in Terminal E. As international arrivals at DTW, your parents need to go through passport check, pick up bags, & go through customs clearance. With their bags in tow, they can exit the terminal & meet you outside - or proceed to the Arrivals hall and meet up at the information counter.

     

    DTW doesn't have a "Terminal E". I think what he's asking is can they re-check their bags at the regular re-check counter on the upper level rather than the international re-check at the exit to immigration. I think the answer is yes, but I'm not 100% sure. It probably won't be too hard for them to use the international re-check - there are likely even signs in Chinese.
