Timedeltas do not have a .minute property Timedeltas do have a .second property.

According to the timedelta docs

A timedelta can be specified using class datetime.timedelta(days=0, seconds=0, microseconds=0, milliseconds=0, minutes=0, hours=0, weeks=0)

One created, timedelta all argument values are converted the three attributes:

Instance attributes (read-only):

Attribute      Value
days           Between -999999999 and 999999999 inclusive
seconds        Between 0 and 86399 inclusive
microseconds   Between 0 and 999999 inclusive

And has the instance attribute:

Return the total number of seconds contained in the duration. Equivalent to td / timedelta(seconds=1).

So to get the number of minutes use int(datetime.timedelta.total_seconds() / 60)
