Connecting Time  (4 Answers)

Hi everyone,
I have booked an international flight to US. My first landing is in DTW and I have 2 hours and 35 mins to catch my flight to Phoenix. Is it possible for me to do everything on time? Has anyone has an experience?
The arrival time is 3:25pm and the departure time is at 6:00pm.
Other flights are much more expensive :(

40 min. layover, can I make it on time?  (7 Answers)

I will have a flight from DC to Detroit then connect to another flight 43 min. later to Narita. I wonder how big or easy Detroit airport is and will I make it on time considering they also have to unload/ reload my checked-in luggage. I supposed if the airline sold me ticket I should be able to make it right? I have done transit in an hour but wonder if 40 min. is kind of short. Thanks.

RE: car rental; car design centers  (2 Answers)

Two Detroit-area questions:

(1) Please suggest what you think is the best current deal for a one-week economy-car rental
pick up and drop off at Detroit-Wayne Airport. I've checked on line, of course; but seek recent, local
feedback, if possible.

(2) In the Greater Detroit area -- aside from The Henry Ford Museum and the Chrysler Center museum-exhibit -- what in your opinion are the best current car design centers that a curious, medium-experienced adult car buff person
can visit and learn from?

Thank you!

airline ticket conundrum  (19 Answers)

17 February, 2015.

Dear Fellow Virtual Tourist People,

I have an airline ticket problem and don't know how to solve it.
I seek advice, please.

That is, this last Saturday I booked & paid for a round-trip ticket Europe/USA/Europe -- for a business meeting I have there about a month from now. I am freelance.

Today (Tuesday) I got word that they changed the date of my USA meeting, and now -- with the ticket I bought last Saturday -- I will arrive four days late for this
important meeting.

How can I change or cancel my ticket and not loose the money I have paid? I still need to go to USA -- but don’t want to have to buy a whole new ticket (and forfeit the first round trip ticket!).

My credit card covers cancellation costs for: (1) medical reasons; (2) a salaried job when starting date for employment suddenly changes; (3) loss of employment; (4) employer suddenly changes my vacation dates.

Unfortunately I qualify for none of the above.

How can I change or cancel my ticket?

By the way, I have already checked with the people I bought the ticket from, and since I have paid fully for this flight (that's now the wrong date!) they will not refund or change my flight.

Last possibility: can anyone recommend a really good last-minute on line ticket deal site for Europe/USA flights?

Thank you all very much for whatever advice you might be able to give.

Yours, a worried traveler: Eurycleia

DTW Airport Process  (5 Answers)

Hi, I will be arriving at DTW on an international flight and only have 1 hr 20 min to my connecting flight. Is this enough time to go through immigration and check-in to my next flight? In LAX, you have to claim your luggage and check it again to the connecting flight. Does DTW have the same rules? Any airport tips on how to save time would be appreciated. Btw, I have Delta flights.

Interview  (9 Answers)

Hi,
I'm travelling to Detroit for the first time for an interview. My interview's at a building on Moross Road. They've recommended a few hotels in Roseville, most of which are 10-15 mins away from the info I've been sent. I was wondering what the best way would be to get from DTW airport to this area? What if I took a cab? How much would that cost me? I'm not too keen on the idea of renting a car since I'm flying back the very next day. And any feedback of any of the hotels in the Roseville area would be great too.
Thanks.
