    I might have shot myself in the foot, but Delta let me book it so I'm wondering how it's going to play out.

    I'm doing JFK-SLC-SJC with a 48 minute connection. Looking at the SLC map, it seems like depending on where I end up, it can be one of those tight "run for the gate" connections.

    Does anybody have any recent experience with Delta flights into T2?

    Thanks

    It's an easy connection -- you should be able to go between gates in just a few minutes -- but try to get a seat near the front of the first plane.

    Even going from the barbie jet bus terminal to the mainline gates I've done it easily in that time.

    I've done SLC easily with a 30 minute turned into 8 minute connection. ;)

    Just be ready to play tackle football and push these Mormons with Leaflets out of your way to the next gate though.

    Ah, yes, but Captain Robert Stack demonstrates just how to deal with those airplane missionaries...

    Ah yes... That's probably the best way to do it. :D

    How do you distinguish between the missionaries and the TSO's?

    Why bother? Captain Stack always finds a way!

    As long as your flight is ontime 48 mins in SLC will be enough time.
