Can we make it? I've done shorter in DC and it was not fun.
My flight times were just changed on me, only giving me 35min between landing on my first flight and the departure of my connecting flight, is that enough time. I plan to only have a carry on bag. My airline is Delta
Arriving from BVT on DL 3294 (Endeavor AIR DBA Delta Connection) connecting to DL 1542 on May 31 with 32 minute layover between flights. Is this enough time to make the connection?
I have a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit on Dec. 17 and I get in around 6 pm. I would have a very long layover 20+ hours if I dont buy another ticket. Would it be possible that I could get on a flight that leaves at 8:10 pm or would I miss it?
Is 42 minutes enough time to get from DL6208 to DL2581?
Hi, i will be arriving from NRT to DTW. And then headed to LGA with a connecting time of 1hr15mines. Will that be enough time ? Thank you :)
Both are on Delta flights :)
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Hi. I have a 2 hour layover at Detroit coming from Narita, Japan and heading to Atlanta, Georgia. Both flights are Delta. Is that enough time and is the connecting flight in the same terminal? Thank you.
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.

I will be flying out from Montreal to Indianapolis on November 23rd with a 1h and 20 minutes layover in Detroit. Is that enough time? Both flights are Delta.

Hi, I'll be arriving from Toronto, with a layover at Detroit of 1:15 hours (5-6pm on a Tuesday), and then going to Munich, Germany. Will that be enough time? Will I have to go through security?
If both flights are on Delta that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto.
Good day! I have a 1.5 hour connection in Detroit from AMS and final destination is MDW. Do we have to claim our baggage and recheck them after immigration and security ? Thanks
Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.
