I'm flying in from Houston (IAH) on 17th December on Delta at 2:29 pm, and the connecting flight to Paris is at 4:19 pm, which is a layover of 110 minutes. The connecting flight is AF, but the carrier is delta. Both flights have been booked on the same reservation, and both are on Lindbergh. I will have 2 bags checked in at Houston. Is 110 minutes enough for this connection? Would I have to recheck bags at MSP? Would I have to go through immigration at MSP?
That is plenty of time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no US Immigration when leaving the US. You also don't have to do anything with your bags in MSP on the way to Paris.
My flightschedule on Delta has changed into a 1h connection coming from a KLM flight from AMS connecting to a Delta flight to LAX. Delta suggested it's enough time but I'm a bit worried as my original schedule left 1.50h, I have checked luggage as well.
You realistically need more like 80-90 minutes, especially with checked baggage. I'd call Delta and reject the schedule change and request a longer connection, possibly over a different Delta hub.
Is 50 mins (minus getting off the flight and being at the next gate before the gates close) generally enough to get from a domestic flight on KLM (Denver) to an international gate on KLM (Amsterdam)? Are weather delays frequent in MSP in January?
Yes, that's enough time. MSP generally has few delays. Note that both of your flights will be operated by Delta, not KLM.
Thanks. So the Delta (it says KLM on the website) domestic and international gates are close to each other? I appreciate your help. I have on finger on the 'purchase' button :)
Yes, Delta uses almost the entire Lindbergh Terminal (aka Terminal 1) and all gates in T1 are connected inside security.
