I put $10 in the cart rental concession and it ate my money but did not release a cart Have tried to reach the cart company but they do not answer their phone . How do I get my money back _
Just wondering are their wells Fargo arms at the airport
Is there a quiet place someone with anxiety can go while waiting? A computer lab, rest area, something?
Which Terminal? How much time do you have?
she was able to find the meditation room
From the directory on this site it appears all of the restaurants are AFTER security.Are there any places BEFORE security? My daghter's flight arrives at McNamara and 1 1/2 hours later my son's flight arrives at the North Terminal. We're looking for a place to wait for his flight.
I don't recall there being anything - maybe a coffee kiosk or something like that. The North Terminal is obviously fairly new so it was designed with pretty much everything inside security.
Darn! I was hoping that wasn't the answer but thanks so much for the info.
I sent the following information in a message to Villa FIK on their website, have had no reply in over a week;
Purchased a "vegetarian Stromboli...$5.99" from the menu board.
I was served a "spinach Roll" and charge $6.99 per the receipt. When I pointed this out, a short belligerent woman rudely told me I paid for what I got. I pointed out that I hadn't ordered a spinach roll and that there was no spinach roll on the menu. Was then informed by a tall stupid man that the vegetarian roll was made with spinach. Neither of them could find "spinach" anything on the menu, nor could they understand the concept of "bait and switch" or understand why it wasn't right to serve me something I hadn't ordered or charge a different price . At no time did either apologize for any confusion or offer to do anything about it. As for the food, the word bland comes to mind.
Anything going to be open on Christmas day? We have a 6-7 hour layover...
I had a late afternoon flight 11/5 out of Detroit, so I spent the time browsing through the shops in the terminal. Loved all the shops, especially the L'Occitan shop. The woman behind the counter who waited on me was so friendly. Just a nice experience.
Are there any facilities inside DTW where one can smoke?
No, there are not.
I am flying into North terminal and wish to shop at McNamara. Is this possible without a Delta boarding pass?
No, it is not. it is also not easy to get between the terminals. They are very far apart and are only connected by a very infrequent shuttle bus.
The store clerk was very rude and unprofessional. He was upset that we preferred U of M stuff over State stuff and told us to go back to where we came from.
