  • Delta Concourse
    Apr 1, 2013
    What concourse does Delta typically use out of MSP for a flight to Detroit?


    Can be pretty much anywhere in C, D, F, or G.


  • Skywest Delta connection.
    Feb 5, 2013
    I'm booking a flight for my sister who is not comfortable traveling. My question is: do the SkyWest Delta Connection flights depart from the same terminal at the regular Delta flights.


    Delta and Delta Connection share the same check-in counters at every airport they operate from.

    how long will the security check points wait time be at 530 am tomorrow


    Long. Security lines are always long early in the morning, and especially so the sunday after thanksgiving. If you're flying out of terminal 2 - humphrey, there's only one checkpoint. If you're flying out of terminal 1 - lindberg (most major airlines except southwest) you get a choice. It will probably help to look at an airport map while reading this. Checkpoint 3 is employees only, so that's out. If you're first class or elite, you can use checkpoint 4, although even that sometimes gets backed up. I generally prefer checkpoints 1 and 2 over checkpoints 5 and 6. 1 and 2 are smaller than 5 and 6 (6 is the biggest), but also less popular, because of where the check-in desks are placed. If your flight leaves from concourse A, B, C, D or E (plenty of delta flights and almost all non-delta flights), there's no reason not to walk down the ticketing area towards checkpoint 1 or 2, since you'll just have to make the same walk on the other side of security if you go through 5 or 6. The other options is the skyway checkpoint, which is accessible in the back of the parking deck. There is no way to check baggage if you go to this checkpoint, but if you only have carry-on bags, and your flight leaves from A, B, C or G concourses, it is worth considering.


  • Between B and G

    fastest route between terminal B and terminal G?


    1. At MSP, The the upper level is surrounded on three sides by Concourses A through G - Concourses E & F are in the center with Concourse D, C, A & B to the right and Concourse G to the left. 2. Concourses C & A are served by a tram; a connector between Concourses C & A connects to Concourse B by a short tunnel; and the Concourse Connector Bridge connects Concourses G & C.


    As soon as you leave your immediate gate area, there will be overhead signs pointing you towards the fastest way to get to each gate/concourse. The signs are really well thought-out, placed frequently, including at any major junction, and will reliably point you towards the fastest route. Your best route will probably be as follows: Turn right out of your B gate and head towards concourse C. Continue on concourse C to the concourse connector bridge. Turn left and walk across the concourse connector bridge. When you get to concourse G, either turn right or left, depending on your gate number. If you're at a really low-numbered G gate, it might make sense to instead take the tram which runs along concourse C to the C1 stop, and go via the main airport mall. You'd have the advantage of a tram, which is faster than moving walkways, for your journey along concourse C, but there aren't any moving walkways on the mall, as there are on the concourse connector. Other than that, it's just a matter of doing two sides of a rectangle vs. the other two sides.


  • From Gate D6 to Gate G21
    Oct 16, 2012
    I will be traveling with a l year old and I have only 35 minutes to connect from D6 to G21. What is the quickest route in the MSP airport?


    At MSP, Terminal 1 (Lindbergh Terminal) - The the upper level is surrounded on three sides by Concourses A through G - Concourses E & F are in the center with Concourse D, C, A & B to the right and Concourse G to the left: at Concourse D - walk from D6, past D1 to exit, walk over to Concourse G & head for signs to gates 11-22. you need to be the first one out of the arriving aircraft!
