Delta have just advised me that the flights for my itinerary have been changed.

The new flights are:
29 August DL4596 GTF to MSP due to arrive 09.18
Connection with DL1310 to JFK due to depart 10.15.

How much time is required to transfer me and my luggage to the JFK flight?
Being new to your airport, how easy is it to find my way to the departure lounge?
That is still plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Just follow the signs.
Thanks. What about transfer of luggage?
You don't have to do anything with your luggage.
A friend of ours (Japanese citizen) is coming to visit us in Canada. If her flight is from Haneda to Winnipeg, Canada but connects in Minneapolis will she have to do American immigration or just customs? And is 1 hour 35 minutes enough time to make that connection? Both the inbound flight and outbound to Winnipeg are with Delta.
Yes, she will have to go through US Immigration and Customs in Minneapolis and will need ESTA.
Is 1h 35m enough time to make that connection?
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I will arrive from San Antonio, TX on Delta and the next leg of the trip goes to Paris-Charles DeGaul airport. Where will I look for the flight to Paris at the Minneapolis air port?
You will look at the monitors and find the gate for the flight to Paris. All you have to do on the way to Paris is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Using today's flights as a guide, it looks like my MCO-MSP Delta flight will land in Concourse "F" and the MSP-YVR leg depart from "C" (75 min later). So, I'll just have to hoof it from F to C, correct? Does one have to go thru TSA again?
All Delta gates are connected inside security. It shouldn't take more than 15 minutes to get between gates.
Hi, my mother in-law will be flying from Canada to South Africa with a South African passport. Does she require a visa of some sort to fly through the US with a short layover?
Yes, she will need a US Transit Visa.
Fastest way from f4 to A4
Follow signs and walk. Gates in MSP aren't as far apart as they look.
I am going to fly from Edmonton, Canada to Atlanta, the transfer time in MSP is 1 hour and 8 minutes. Do you think that's enough for me to go through the custom and recheck my bags?
I hold an F1 visa, and I have one check in baggage. Delta said it would be fine, but i have a feeling that they do not know the situation as well as you guys.
I am going to fly in tomorrow. Thanks
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Edmonton. All you have to do in MSP is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
My mother may need assistance flying from Amsterdam to MSP then to a connecting flight to further fly to PHX.
She has 1 hour and 20 minutes to go through customs and on to her connecting flight. Will that give her enough time, and does MSP airport have assistance to help her through customs, and get to her connecting flight?
Yes, that is enough time. There is no specific assistance for that unless she is handicapped.
Distance between b and f concourse
Less than 15 minute walk.
Hello, I have a minor who is 16 traveling alone from Atlanta to Haneda, Japan. He has a 50 minute layover in MSP. Will he have enough time to get from gate to gate? Both are on Delta so I think the terminal is the same, so he shouldn't need to go through security, bags will be checked through from Atlanta so no worries there. Just concerned about him getting from one gate to the other in 50 minutes.
Yes, all he has to do on the way to Japan is walk from his arrival gate to his departure gate. Tell him to just follow the signs.
