Hello I have a DELTA flight shanghai- Detroit and transfer to Montreal on another DELTA flight. Is 1h 45 min enough time? Do I have to take my luggage with me?
Arriving from London Heathrow in August for a connection onto Orlando - arrive 13:58 with the connecting flight leaving @ 15:30 - both Delta flights !!!

Any tips or suggestions
Yes, that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly. Just follow the signs and move as quickly as possible.
I will fly on July 10th, 2018 from Mexico (with French passport and ESTA) to Detroit (9:10-14:40) and my other flight from Detroit to Hartford is at 16:05. Will I have enough time?? Both flights are with DELTA.
Thank you very much in advance
Hi,

I'm arriving from London, England on Friday May 4th, at 4:15pm and need to connect for a Columbus flight at 5:40pm. Is this enough time to make my connection and do you have any idea which gates I will arrive and leave from?
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly. You will arrive at a gate in the center of Concourse A of the McNamara Terminal. I don't know your departure gate except that it will be somewhere in the McNamara Terminal.
I'm flying Montreal to Dayton with one hour and 12 minute layover in Detroit (arriving at 7:30am). Is this enough time to collect my bag, go through customs, recheck the bag, go through security and still get to my next flight?
You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Detroit is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
I am flying Delta from Syr to Detroit at 7:45am on Saturday and flying out to Cancun at 8:41am. Any idea what terminal/gate we may be flying into and out of--worried we won't have enough time for the connection.
If both flights are on Delta then they will both be in the McNamara Terminal and all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
Hello,

I will be flying from
LAX and connecting via DTW onwards to YOW. I am flying with Delta and aware that I will be arriving/departing to/from McNamara terminal.
I have a 46 minute connecting time. Is it possible to determine what concourse i will be arriving/departing from? I want to make sure I have enough connecting time... i’m assuming that I won’t have to go through Security as I will be arriving/departing from same terminal?

Thank you!
You will arrive in A and likely depart from B or C. It doesn't really take that long to get between them. Correct, you won't have to go through security. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.
Thank you for the quick turnaround!
arriving into Detroit airport on flight 1109 on 6/14 which is a 190 aircraft connecting to flight 2489 which is a larger aircraft - it states 32 minute connection --- I know there is the tunnel and wonder if that connection time is sufficient - cannot find what gates plane leave from
What airlines are you flying? If both flights are on Delta then they will both be in Concourse A.
arriving Air Canada from YYZ into terminal M 2pm
departing Delta from McNamara 3:31pm
No luggage. Do I have enough time to transfer between terminals and get through security???
That's just enough time if the Air Canada flight is on-time. Check in online for your Delta flight before leaving Toronto.
All checked in, boarding passes printed. Carry on only. Fingers crossed. Any tips on getting between terminals??
You have to use a shuttle bus. I don't know exactly where in the North Terminal it leaves from, but it drops you almost in the perfect spot in the McNamara Terminal.
I'm seeing great prices on these short connection times at DTW. DTW seems like a massive airport. Is it possible to comfortably make these short connections? Walking, not running, not stressing???
It isn't really that massive. Both flights would be in the McNamara Terminal. It's possible if the first flight is on-time.
