On May 28, I am taking a day trip to ORD on NW and its DC-9s. I have a 32 minute connection. I am on a Compass Airlines E175 from IAH-MSP. Within 32 minutes, my flight to ORD leaves. I know I am cutting it short, but will my flight to ORD most likely leave from the same terminal my IAH flight arrives at? Or will the flight, most likely, depart from a different terminal? If I have to switch terminals, will I be able to make my flight to ORD? Thanks to all who reply!  Smile

All NWA flights leave from the Lindbergh terminal. You should easily make your connection.

There are two terminals at MSP. NW only operates at the Lindbergh Terminal so yes your flights will be at the same terminal. But your flights will probably be at different concourses and the fastest way to get from one concourse to another is the tram. There are two trams at MSP. One of the trams operates at concourse B and C, the other goes from the transit center to the NW check-in (won't need this tram).


It ain't no normal MD80 its a Super 80!

You should be fine. Your flight from IAH will probably arrive on concourse C and i'm betting you'll leave from F so i think you should be able to make it.

That's cutting it a bit in close at any major airport, but knowing MSP, you should be fine.

It'll be a bit of a hike if the gates are far away, but if need be, find one of the airport "Shriners" that drive the carts. Let them know you have a tight connection and need an express trip to your gate - but hang on!! Some of them do drive like Shriners at a convention!

In looking at the gate information at nwa.com, the Compass & Mesaba flights from IAH to MSP have all arrived at either the C gates or the F gates. The Chicago flights all are departing from the G gates (except for the last one of the night), and in these cases, you'll need to cross from one side of the terminal to the other. Easy enough - there's the Northwest Crossing or the pedestrian skyway bridge on the southeast side.

You should be fine!!
