  • bagage claim

    we`re changing from a domestic flight on to an international flight. we have 1.15 hours. do we have to collect our Luggage and bring it somewhere else?


    Are both of your flights on Delta and booked on the same reservation? If so you will not have to do anything with your baggage in Detroit.


    yes, both delta flights and booked on the same reservation. but I checked the delta website and it said you allways have to collect your Luggage. so now I`m not sure. I dont want it left behind


    When going International -> Domestic you have to claim your baggage. When going Domestic -> International you do not, and in fact, cannot as the baggage will be transfered automatically.

    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.
