We arrive in Dallas at one terminal from St. Louis and need to go to another to go on to London. We only have 45 min. Is that possible to connect to an international flight? Will we have to collect our baggage before we board our other flight? It is same airline> Thanks
Yes, that is enough time. you don't have to do anything with your bags in Dallas on your way to London. All you have to do is take the Skylink train from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Returning from Puerto Vallarta and counting on to Washington Nation. I have a 1 hour and 56 minute lay over in Dallas. Both flights are AA and there is a terminal change and I have one checked bag. Is 1 hour and 56 minutes enough time to make the connection and clear customs?
Yes, that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
is 1 hr enough time to get from Terminal C7 to D 30?
Yes, the Skylink train connects all gates inside security.
My son is going from Cancun to Denver with a plane change in DFW. Where will he go through Immigration?
In DFW he will go through US Immigration, claim his bags, go through US Customs, re-check his bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to his departure gate.
Hi, my husband and I will arrive to DFW from LGA at 3:57 pm and need to take our next flight at 5:05 pm to Costa Rica with AA on Nov 4th. Is this enough time?
Yes, that should be plenty of time. The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security. All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Terminal D.
I am flying into DFW from Cancun with a final destination of Cleveland. We arrive at 8:35am on an AA flight and depart DFW at 10:10am (1:35 minute layover) also on American Airlines. Will that be enough time to make it through customs and onto our connecting flight?
I'm transferring form Domestic (American Airlines) to Intl (Qatar Airways) and the time is only 1 hour. My ticket is not booked seperately and its a combiled ticket to my flight to India. Will it be possible to change in 1 hour.
Yes, it is possible. All you have to do is take the SkyTrain from your arrival terminal to Terminal D and walk to your gate.
I am flying from Washington, to Norfolk, Virginia, on the 23rd of July. I have a 1 hr and 5 min layover in Dallas. I am bringing my small dog. He already has his health certificate and carrier. The first flight is 4 hours long, and the second is 3, so I will need to take him to a pet relief area between the two flights. My concern is that I have to find time to pay for his ticket for each flight, as well as get him to the pet relief area, and find my way back through security, with in one hour. I am absolutely unwilling to place him in the cargo hold. This layover will be from 11:55- 12:50. What can I do to ensure that I can make this flight on time, with my dog in the cabin with me? I am willing to switch flights if possible. Please let me know how I may deal with this situation. The gate numbers are not yet posted, but I am flying on Wednesday the 23rd. My assumption is that this is not a busy day, and based off of this chart I am assuming the actual security check point won't have a wait time longer than 25 minutes tops. How might I find out about the other wait times and travel times? Thank you.
Unless you purchased two separate flights you won't have to pay a second cabin pet fee in Dallas. Security wait times at DFW are generally short as there are many many checkpoints. Just take the dog outside right after you arrive - you should have plenty of time to get back through security before your next flight.
Thanks!!!
Ignore sajul - he is incorrect.
