  • nervous driver drop off DTW for Delta Domestic departure
    Apr 25, 2015

    Arriving to DTW from toledo oh. and being dropped off for a Domestic Delta flight. I'll have a VERY unfamiliar and nervous driver. Can someone suggest very basic steps to give them when arriv. from I-275 to simply leave me close to Delta departure Thanks much

     

    There's LOTS of signs pointing the way from I-275 to the McNamara Terminal. Also, don't get worried if they accidentally get off for the arrivals level instead of the departures level, you can still get to the check in counters and gates from the arrivals level.

    We are arriving from London at 2.40pm connecting with a flight to New Orleans scheduled to take off at 3.55. Will we have enough time to clear immigration, collect our baggage and make the flight?

     

    that is a good 15 minutes below the recommended time for that connection.

    When My tickets (my own and 3 children) were purchased I had a 57min connection time in Chicago on my return from Boston to Calgary, Alberta. However, as the trip approaches that has been changed to 28 minutes! I am not an experienced traveler and my children have never travelled. What do I do? And How do we make our connection in time? TIA,

     

    It's possible but it depends on your flight being on-time or preferably early. Since it was an involuntary schedule change, you can contact your airline or travel agent and request an earlier flight from Boston.

     

  • UK to Detroit via AMS

    I am a U.S. citizen traveling from Birmingham UK to Detroit USA with layover in AMS. I booked entIre flight through Delta although the first leg is run by KLM and the final is run by Delta. Will I need to collect my luggage at AMS and go through customs and passport control then recheck prior to the AMS to Detroit flight? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

     

    No, all you have to do in Amsterdam is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will not have to go through passport control since you are not entering the Schengen Area

     

    Many thanks ZAP. That is what I needed to hear.

    Can I keep my wallet in my pocket while going through the x-ray? I've heard many different things ranging from keep it in your carry-on to put it in the tray that moves through the x-ray I'm not sure what to do.

    X-ray, yes, as long as there's absolutely nothing metal in it. Body scanner - no, you have to take it out. I suggest putting it in your carry on.

     

    Does each person have to go through the body scanner?

     

    If they are using the body scanner, You either go through the body scanner or request a personal screening which is done by hand and with the metal detector wand.
