Arriving on Delta and have 45 layover need to get from A76 to A28. Enough time?
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time.
I am flying from Orlando to Las Vegas, connecting in Detroit. The connection time is 30 mins. We are flying with Spirit airlines and will have a checked bag. Do we need to collect and re check bag? Is 30 minutes completely unrealistic?
You do not have to claim and re-check your bag if both flights are on the same reservation. The connection is possible if the flight from Orlando is on-time.
Thanks for this!
I have a 56m layover at DTW.Coming from Nashville ,going to Japan. All are Delta flights.Where do i do immigration and is there enough time ?
There is no US Immigration when leaving the US. You will go through Japanese Immigration in Japan. You have enough time. All you have to do in Detroit is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Arriving spirit airlines gate d11 @ 10:43 can I make it to gate d14 departing at 11:15?
Yes, that's possible if the first flight is on-time. Walking between the two gates will take like 2 minutes.
We are arriving to Dtw McNamara on a Delta flight from Pellston at 2:53 and have a connection on United in the north terminal with 2 bags at 4:15 will we have enough time to make connection?
That is a very difficult connection, especially if you have checked bags.
Where is the shuttle connection to take me from the North Terminal to the McNamara Terminal?
On the lower level of each, I don't know exactly where it picks up in the North Terminal but there should be a sign saying "shuttle to McNamara Terminal". It drops off by the car rental shuttles in the McNamara Terminal. Be sure to leave plenty of time as the shuttle does not run frequently.
Thank you!!
Flying from SDF to JFK with a 1-hour layover in Detroit. I think this is enough time, but I want to confirm before I book. I have an international flight leaving from JFK several hours later, but it is ticketed separately and I don't want to risk missing that flight.
Yes, that is enough time for your connection in Detroit (assuming both flights are on Delta).
I have a flight arriving in North terminal at 7:13pm and departing Macnamara at 8:25pm. Do I have to get my back age due to terminal change? Will I have time?
Delta does not interline with any of the airlines in the North Terminal, so yes, you will have to transfer your bags yourself. You have no chance of making this connection with checked bags.
I land in DTW at 11:28 and depart to South Korea ICN at 12:12. This leaves me with a 44 minute layover. Will I make the connecting flights in time?
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Hi..
I land at McNamara Terminal at 6:40am (Delta) and have an outbound Spirit Flight from North Terminal @ 7:28am. Will I make it?
Tnx
You have zero chance of making that.
