Topic Discussion

I've never been through DTW. I am flying in on Delta with a 35 min layover connection on Endeavor Air. Both have delta flight numbers but I know Endeavor is a subsidiary so not sure if it operates out of the same terminal. Will this be enough time between flights in January? We will be traveling with 3 young children.
Yes, it is in the same terminal. Both of your gates will probably close to each other. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Ok thank you!
I've never been to DTW, haven't flown in quite a long time and a nervous wreck on if I'm going to make it or not especially in December. I will be flying from BDL (Hartford, CT) to SAN (San Diego, CA) on December 7th, 2017 (Thursday) with a stop in DTW.

My first plane(from BDL) is due to arrive at DTW at 7:48 AM and the next plane (to SAN) is scheduled to depart at 8:44 AM. Will 56 minutes be long enough to get from (worst case scenario) end to end?
Yes, that is enough time. You can get between any two Delta gates in Detroit in 15 minutes or less.
We'll be traveling next May 2018 and Delta changed our flight times some. Flying from RDU to Narita with a 53 minute layover in DTW. Will that work?
Yes, that is enough time. You have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
How would I know if a 37 minute layover be enough time to transfer planes in Detroit?
Yes, it is enough time if the first flight is on-time but leaves no time to spare.
My parents are arriving in DTW from overseas, with 1 hour 30 minutes to catch next flight to Orlando, FL. Both are Delta flights. Would this be enough time? Also, do they need to check-in (going through TSA) again after Custom clearance upon arrival? Thank you!
They will have to go through US Immigration, claim their bags, go through US Customs, re-check their bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to their departure gate. They have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Will one hour between domestic arrival and international departure (with mobility assistance ) be adequate?
If both flights are on Delta that is enough time.
I arrive at 11:30 am terminal 2 Delta ORD -DTW then depart 12:00 for SWF terminal EM. Will I make this? Is it easy to get between terminals I haven't been to DTW in years.
Terminal 2 is your departure terminal from ORD. All you have to do in Detroit is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in the McNamara Terminal. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am contemplating booking a flight from Amsterdam to Managua, with a layover in Detroit and ATL . Would a layover in Detroit of 2 hours be long enough to re-check in my luggage etc. and catch my connecting flight? Thanks in advance.

That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Oct 23, 2017 DL4443 from CLE arrives Terminal M at 7:25pm
AF377 departs DTL at 8:45pm
Can I simply go to a nearby gate or must I go through airport security again?
You will arrive on Concourse B or C and depart from Concourse A, all of the McNamara Terminal. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate via an underground tunnel. You have plenty of time.
@ZAP Thank you for the reassurance!
