    If I am flying from Florida to Dallas then Dallas to Tokyo and then Tokyo to Okinawa...at what location will I need to get my bags ? Dallas or Tokyo ?

     

    If all flights are on the same reservation you won't see your bags again until you get to Okinawa.

    Will be traveling from St. Louis to Milan with a layover in at DFW. Layover is about 2 hours. Is that enough time to recheck baggage and make the flight to MIlan?

     

    If both flights are on AA you don't have to claim or re-check your baggage. Also there are no nonstop flights from DFW to Milan. Where are you stopping first?

    I will be flying OGG/DFW/LHR with an 8hr layout at DFW (both flights with AA), will I need to re-check my bags. I don't really want to have to carry them around for 8hrs!!!

     

    You don't have to do anything with your bags in DFW.

    i have a flight from London to Lima with a 2 hour 55 min connection, I'm really concerned that this won't be a long enough connection time. so i spoke to my travel agents ho supposedly spoke to the American airlines who said we won't have to go through immigration and collect our bags is this incorrect?

     

    You will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security, but you won't have to collect your bags. You have plenty of time.

    hi, I'm travelling from doha to denver via dfw on qatar. Do I need to re checkin my bags in dwf? or is it I can collect my bags directly in denver without baggage checking ?

     

    In DFW you will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, go through security, and take the skylink train to your departure terminal and gate.

     

  • Re-check baggage at DFW for International flight?

    My mom is flying from OAK to DFW to Eritrea; does she have to recheck my luggage again in DFW to Eritrea? If so, is there some assistance we can set up in OAK with re-checking the bags? She's an older lady and will need help with bags and language? Thank you.

     

    There are no nonstop flights from DFW to Eritrea. She must be flying somewhere else first. What airlines is she flying? The only airline that flies nonstop from Oakland to DFW is Spirit Airlines. Spirit does not transfer bags to or from any other airlines. If she is flying Spirit, she will have to claim her bags in Terminal E and then likely take a bus to Terminal D to re-check her bags with her International carrier.

    It's my first time to use the DFW, I land from Narita Japan,i have to go to Miami then to Manaus Brazil. Kindly teach me the procedures.

     

    You will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. If it is in Terminal A or C (likely), then you will take the Skylink train there after going through security. In Miami all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    Thanks for the information.

    My daughter is flying from sydney to dfw on American operated by Quantas 7308 then onto BWI on American 2361. She has been told she must retrieve her bags at a transfer area at DFW. Where is the baggage transfer area? two hours between fiights!

     

    She will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim her bags (it's a special international baggage claim), go through US customs, re-check her bags at the re-check desk, then go to the departure level, through security and then to her departure gate which may be in another terminal. The Skylink train connects all terminals inside security.

     

    Thank you so much!

     

    thank you

    My AA flight from San Fran to Orlando has a layover time of 47 mins from 0613 until 0700. Is this normally enough time for my checked hold baggage to be transferred to my connecting flight

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

    I'm flying from SFO to YYZ with 1hr 50 min layover at DFW. Do I need to retrieve my luggage then back to customs/security/check-in again? or will my luggage arrive at YYZ directly?

     

    Your bags will go straight to Toronto. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    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.
