Re: Detroit ranked best connection hub in America by J. D. Power

I was talking about TSA screening after you clear customs. Once you clear customs you are cleared onto your connecting flight. I know precisely what you're talking about and no, you're not correct. Once you clear customs you must also go through TSA screening before going to your connecting flight....

Although, LH has a grip on the lucrative BMW contract that helps support their CLT-MUC flight. Which I don’t see going any...
