Walk through the tunnel...the lights are cool
ride the indoor tram! super fun
Did you know that the US has the most airports in the world - 15,079.
Once you land be prepared to sit. There is never anyone at the gate to bring the plane in.
Take off safely and land safely ...
The light tunnel is trippy. The hub fountain is a swt little show. Relaxing & creative! Ride the tram it's fun.
Take the train vs. walking. It's not as healthy, but will definitely get you there faster.
fly any airline but Delta!
Long ass airport... take the monorail.
Power outlets wherever you sit is the big + here
The bird noises you are hearing are actually fake recordings meant to keep real birds away.
Please watch your step as you exit the moving walk.
If you have some time and you are from out of town, you have to stop at National Coney Island for the best Chili Dogs in the world!
Watch out for the screaming birds between gates A16 & A30! :-/
Check in through the Westin hotel bar. One gate, no line and a lot less hastle than the main line.
Detroit, Michigan is in the Eastern time zone.
The A terminal is LONG! Use the monorail.
Definitely eat at Sora, Japanese restaurant!
The moving walk to Terminal B may cause flashbacks.
Get a free massage from the friendliest Midwestern TSA agents you'll ever meet.
The trams are automated, so stand in the very front and pretend like you're driving.
Tunnel Trick - once you get off the escalators from concourse A, you'll see a large gray circle on the ground - stand in the center where the points come together and speak - the ceiling above echos!
Don't let your car battery run down while you're out of town. Bad news bears.
Free wifi outside the delta sky club lounge
Once you land be prepared to wait on Delta. Never anyone to flag in plane.
For some delicious noms before you hop on the plane, check out the sushi at Sora down near Gate 32, it's delicious!
They refer to "baggage claim" as "luggage claim." this is needlessly different and wrong. Stop it
Skip the fast food chains and head straight to Vino Volo for great food and wine pairings. Cheers!
Get the full body scan at security...Wee!
go through the connecting underground tunnel, it was so cool. it's like a light show ♥
TSA guy told me that the best time to travel and get through security here is before 9am on Sundays. Said there is never a line.
Walk in to the National Coney Island across from terminal A47 and go to the 3rd booth closest to the entrance. Lift up the cushion of the booth and inside you will find $30,000 in gold coins.
Try the airplanes.
According to the announcement, if you want to know what time it is just look at a clock!
Go to National Coney Island if you have a layover. Coney dogs the way they should be.
Plan ahead. As you get closer to the gates, your food options completely end.
If you're here. Get a one-way ticket some where else. Even Cleveland is better.
Join the Delta Sky Club for the bathrooms alone.
Make sure you get felt up by TSA before you leave.
Drop acid and walk through the tunnel with all the lights. It'll LITERALLY blow your mind!!!!
DETROIT ROCK CITY.
Walk as fast ad you can on the moving sidewalks
The lightshow in the tunnel from Terminal A to C can be a bit "assertive" 1st thing in the morning. Bring a can of happy.
Best place to eat here is Sora (Japanese food and not just sushi)
No trip to DTW is complete without a journey through the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory tunnel
Ok a MUST to go through the colorful tunnels!
if there is a lot of traffic at Domestic Arrival just go down to International Arrival and ask your friend to go down escalators to meet you there!
Longest taxi ever after landing. Good luck making a connection.
Start using the e-boarding pass check in system. It's quicker, easier, and paperless!
