There's nothing worse than sitting in an airport for hours upon hours as you wait for your delayed flight to finally board and take off, well maybe getting texts throughout the day that your flight would be delayed late into the night. Either way, both involve lots of waiting and a late arrival to your desired destination.

Also, has anyone else ever had that crazy scare with connecting flights? Like I mean checking the time while you're in the air, rushing people to get their carry-on luggage, and running through the airport trying to make it to the next gate on time?

Yeah, me too, it may be a little fun and exhilarating but it's also nerve-wracking and very scary because missing a flight is no joke, let me tell you from firsthand experience. Well, when you fly out of the Detroit Metro Airport this is an issue that very seldom occurs to its passengers.

Although, there is one downside to the Detroit Metro Airport being as efficient as they are. For individuals who tend to run a little slower when it comes to being on time could be in trouble. With so many flights coming in and out, to remain on time they have to be strict with all of their timelines.

This means if you're not checked in at least 45 minutes before your flight takes off you will only be able to travel with your carry-on luggage and that's if you make it through the TSA screening checkpoint in time. So, if you can't be on time then the Detroit Metro Airport isn't your best option because you may end up missing your flight.
