  • 36 min layover
    Apr 13, 2016
    hi. would a 36 minute layover be sufficient for traveling from orlando to st louis on delta with 2 adults with carry on bags?


    It's possible. It obviously leaves no time to spare if the flight from Orlando is delayed.

    I Have a flight from Memphis to MSP then to CDC in Paris on august 24th. The layover at MSP is 1 hour and 11 minutes is that going to be enough time?


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do at MSP is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I have a flight from Cleveland (Express Jet) to Paris (Delta) through Minneapolis airport. will 41 minutes going to be enough to catch the flight to Paris? and will my baggage going to be transferred to the other flight even if i don't catch it? NOTE: I am not a U.S. citizen Thank you,


    Yes, it should be enough time if the flight from Cleveland is on-time. Your citizenship doesn't matter, there is no US Customs or Immigration when leaving the US. Your bags may or may not be on the flight if you don't make it.

    Flying in from Heathrow at 15.40 and I have a connecting flight to catch to Indianapolis at 17.21 - is this possible?


    Yes, that should be enough time for an International to domestic connection at MSP.

    I am flying in from Rapid city with Delta air and then flying on to Toronto. They have only given me 47 minutes to make my connecting flight. Is this going to be enough. Thankyou.


    Yes, if your flight from Rapid City is on-time that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • NRT to BOS via MSP
    Apr 5, 2016
    I'm traveling from Narita to Boston with a layover in MSP. My layover is an hour and a half. It seems like this would be enough time for some international flights but I've read that two other flights get in around the same time as the Narita flight. Would this be enough time to clear customs and board? Thanks!


    It's enough time if everything goes smoothly. If there is a delay, there should still be enough time in the day for Delta to get you to Boston that evening.

    We are flying YWG / MSP / SLC / FAT all on Delta. We have only 49 minutes in Msp is that enough time to make our connection ?


    Yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Winnipeg.


  • YXE to MSP to BNA
    Mar 29, 2016
    I have an hour layover to land from YXE (Saskatoon SK), go thru customs then board a flight to BNA (Nashville, TN) I have enough time to make this flight connection?


    With checked bags I think this would be very difficult, probably impossible. Without checked bags I say you'd have a chance.


  • MPLS Connection
    Mar 21, 2016
    Hello, I will be flying on an Endeavor Air DBA Delta Connection flight from Sioux Falls, SD. I land at 6:37 and my connecting flight is to SLC, Utah, at 7:25. I am concerned about the 49 minutes layoff. I have never been to MPLS, thoughts if this is possible? Assuming there are no delays in the first flight.


    Yes, if the first flight is on-time this should be enough time.


    Thank you sir.


  • flying from winnipeg (YWG) to Raleigh (RDU)
    Mar 19, 2016
    Hi, we're flying to Raleigh as a group of 2 adults and 2 children (3+). We're canadian citizens and our flight is YWG-MSP-DTW-RDU. I would like to know how much time we might need in MSP since I've heard that the waiting times and queues are really bad.


    You won't have to wait in any lines in MSP. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Winnipeg. All you have to do in MSP is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    How much time do I need between miy flights travelling from Regina Canada to Paris France through Minneapolis


    90 minutes minimum since you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security.


  • Enough connection time?
    Feb 29, 2016
    My husband and I are flying from Columbus, Ohio to San Diego for a Panama Canal cruise. Our flight times were changed and the connection time between flights is now only 38 minutes. It was changed from 1 hour and 5 minutes. We don't want to miss our ship and want our checked luggage to be transferred in time to make the our flight. Any thoughts? Should we worry about only 38 minutes between flights?


    It's not impossible, but I would call Delta about the involuntary schedule change and ask for an alternate routing, likely through a different Delta hub.


  • Connection time 1 hr 16 min

    I am flying from Amsterdam to MSP flying to New Orleans. I have a connection at MSP of 1 hr 16 mins. Is this enough time to disembark, clear immigration, collect bag and re check in and make the flight?


    That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. MSP has very few international flights so there should be no lines at immigration when you arrive.


    When you say barely enough time do you think it unlikely we would make it ?


    I think you'll make it, and if you don't they will probably be able to rebook you to New Orleans through Atlanta pretty easily.


  • Tight connection time
    Feb 23, 2016
    Hi, Got my answer that 45 minutes is enough layover time for a domestic to international flight connection. Just to get extra peace of mind, do you know which concourses in terminal 1 Delta uses for their different flights? Can I just walk from one concourse to the other - or is there a faster way? Specifically I'm looking for SFO - MSP - FCO (Rome, Italy). TIA.


    The fastest way between all Delta flights is to walk. The SFO and FCO flights should be reasonably close together as all the large aircraft use about a dozen gates in the same area.


  • Family of 6 is 35 minute connection time enough?
    Feb 23, 2016
    Have a Family of 6 traveling Shanghai, Seattle, MSP, Kansas City. The MSP to KC (MCI) connection time is only 35 minutes or I can reserve a flight that has a 2:50 minute layover. Obviously I would like to take the earlier flight if I could make it...but is that really advisable with such a large group...if we missed it...what are the chances of getting us all on the later flight. This is on June 5, 2016?


    Forgot to say this is with Delta and I believe the connections should be both in Terminal 1.


    Yes, 35 minutes is possible if the first flight is on-time. However, you are right, if you did miss it they probably won't have 6 empty seats on the later flight. if you want to be safe I would book the later flight.
