I am travelling from Bahrain to Amsterdam to detroit to Orlando. Bahrain to detroit is by KLm amd then detroit to orlando is by delta.
Will my luggage go directly to orlando or do i have to collect my baggage and re-check in for orlando. How long will that take.
1. Detroit is your international arrival - KLM arrives at the North Terminal's Concourse D. On arrival you go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag (the tag should indicate layover and final destination Airport Codes). 2. You need to contact KLM whether they will transfer your bags at Detroit Metropolitan Airport (not all airlines do - in which case you would need to take your bag and check it with Delta, which is in the McNamara Terminal (Concourse A). 3. A shuttle bus runs every 10 minutes between the McNamara and the North Terminals, taking 7 minutes. Concourse A of McNamara has 1.5 miles of moving walkways, but also uses the Express Tram serving the South station near gate A11, the Terminal station in the center near the water feature, and the North station near gate A67.
