Connection In DTW?

Sun Jul 10, 2005 12:10 pm

Hey all! I was wondering will 35 minutes be enough time to connect in DTW from the B gates to the C gates. I am Flying MSP-ROA with a connection in DTW and because I used miles, this was the only connection time I could get. Is it feasible? Never been to DTW, so all help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks a lot!

No problem what so ever, as long as your flights are on time.

Between B & C should take you all of two minutes!

I'll second that. At DTW as long as you are with NW or sky team partners you can transfer with ease.

Between B&C is simple, it's B&C to A that would take a little time, but still isn't difficult.

Except in my case my last trip to DTW when I was doing it on a freshly-gimped knee and limped my way across from A to B... but even then I made what became (thanks to some snow in MDW) a 25 minute connection with time to spare.

Like everyone said above, it should be very possible. Enjoy your quick stay at DTW, it's very nice airport.
confusing use of time

Hi All, Thanks a lot for your responses. Looks like I will be fine. Burnsie...yeah I totally screwed that one up, I actually meant from the A to the C gates. From NW Mainline to XJ. Sorry about that, will the time still be sufficient?
Thanks

Without a doubt you still have time, just to loiter in tunnel!
