  • Collecting luggage?
    Mar 18, 2015
    I'm coming from Sydney to Washington, D.C. With a stop over in Dallas will I have to collect my luggage and recheck it in? Will two hours stop over be enough?


    Yes, in Dallas you will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and take the SkyLink train to your departure gate. 2 Hours should be just enough time.

    Hi, if an Australian flying fm SYD to DFW and connect DFW to HOU, where should he/she clear the immigration and luggage?


    He or she will arrive in DFW Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim their bags, go through US Customs, and if they purchased all tickets together, then re-check their bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and to their departure gate.


    Thank you for the reply, question, why do we nees to clear immigration and luggage in DFW? This a connecting flight to HOU, why cant the luggage be transfer to the connecting flight instead have to re-check in it?


    Luggage must be claimed in order to carry it through US Customs. You are entering the United States in Dallas and must go through US Immigration and Customs there. That is the policy at every US Airport.

    I will be coming to DFW in the morning 7am AA, have international flight connection at 4pm in Qatar airways. Does DFW airport have clock room or luggage room, where i check in my luggage and go put of airport for shopping/lunch? Thanks


    There are no baggage storage facilities at DFW. If you would like to leave the airport during your layover, you will have to bring your bags with you.

    flew in from sydney to dallas fort worth on sunday cleared through customs and came to a airport official near terminal D that said put ur bags on the carasell and your bags will go to ur flight but they were only checked in as far as dallas i kept telling him that but he said it would be ok who at the airport do i see as i received none of my bags back


    You should contact Qantas as the bags were probably delivered to their bag office as they were the last tag on the bag.


    The number to contact them in the US is: 1 866 767 2247


  • 2 Seperate R/T Reservations
    Jun 25, 2014
    I will be flying R/T from Shreveport to DFW on 08/01/14 and returning on 08/09/14 flying AA. I am leaving on 08/02/14 R/T to LHR and returning 08/09/14 on Delta Airlines. My question is upon arrival at DFW on 08/09 I will go through Customs with my luggage, Will I have to then leave the terminal, come back to AA and then check in with them, or is there any way to check bags through to SHV and just recheck them after clearing Customs?


    Delta does not fly from DFW to LHR. You will be entering the US Somewhere other than DFW if you booked a DFW-LHR-DFW ticket with Delta.


    I'm sorry, you are correct...I am flying KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, operated by Delta. I also left out that the flight back into DFW will be LHR-AMS-DFW.


    So Actually all of your "Delta" flights are operated by KLM, so you will arrive in Terminal D, which also handles AA flights so re-checking your bags with AA will be a lot easier as you won't have to change terminals with your baggage. You can re-check your bags in Terminal D then go through security and take the Skylink train to your departure gate in Terminal B


    Thank you very much....this eases my mind alot!


    You will arrive in A. You will go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags with US Airways, then you will go up to the departure level and through security and to your departure gate. Your flight to Indianapolis will likely depart from Terminal B. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • Lost Giraffe Print Luggage through American Airlines
    Dec 28, 2013
    Hi, I can't seem to get in contact with American Airline's lost luggage office, but my bags have been missing for 4 days now. I have filed a claim and was told that my bags were in DFW, but there apparently hasn't been much done to get my bags to GDL. I need help contacting AA staff! My luggage stands out a lot because it is very girly and has giraffe print.


    Also, forgot to add that the number 972-425-2465 is just not working for me. I can't seem to get past the part where it asks me for the last four digits of the number I am calling. Help.
