Ok in just about 2 weeks, I'm flying from Indianapolis to Las Vegas with a layover in Minneapolis. My scheduled arrival time is 8:02am in Minneapolis and my scheduled departure is 9:25am. Obviously I don't know my exact gates yet, but the planes have been arriving in the C gates and leaving from the G gates. Is this airport easy to navigate to give me plenty of time to get from the C gates to the G gates or will I be rushed to get from one flight to the next?

If you have close to an hour and a half it should be easy to connect. The layout in Minneapolis is pretty simple.

It's a huge airport but I have easily connected with less time. You should be fine.

You gave yourself over an hour, that should be enough time in summer. Winters I avoid northern airports if given the option for connections.

Ok thanks guys. My girlfriend and I are in good shape so even if we had to run, it shouldn't have been an issue for us, but a buddy and his wife are going also and they aren't exactly the type that can go running thru on airport if needed to.

Yeah I can understand that. I originally booked non-stop, but then Northwest moved their non-stop flight from Indianapolis to Las Vegas to the evening. Since Northwest changed my flight, they did give me the option to change for free, but not back to the non-stop flight. The only other option they gave me was to go thru Detroit and that one had a 3 or 4 hour layover so it didn't make any since considering it's just over an hour in Minneapolis.

as stated, you should be fine

the main confusion I have seen with msp is their terminal layout between the lindbergh terminal and the humphrey terminal ..... sounds like you're staying within lindbergh so you should be fine

It is all good! You should be fine! Nice map Finger Laker! I suggest no smoothies at airport. Had a hell of a ride back to WA - could have been just a flu and if caught me on flight but ohh my goodness never spent a flight like that in my life!

You shouldn't have any problem. If you've ever been through Chicago or Dallas- Fort Worth, imagine the exact opposite.

If you are going from the far end of the G gates over to the C gates take the direct route across unless you have an hour to kill and want to look at the shops. Going the long way around is a bit of a walk if you are in a hurry
