I will be fliying from Madrid to Tucson via Dallas. I arrive in Dallas at 15:00 and the fly to Tucson is at 18:55. Both flyes wiht AA. Is this time sufficient to go through transit procedures? After pass the customs/immigration process... Do i have to claim the baggage at Dallas and re-check to Tucson?
Yes, that should be plenty of time. Yes, you will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs and then immediately re-check it at the re-check desk after clearing customs.
Arriving from Cancun to Dallas FW at 5 pm - AA and connect to a flight to Sydney 8.00 pm ( 3 hours ) Do I go through customs or do I go through a transit lounge Is 3 Hours sufficient for US airport processing /
Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security. You have enough time.
I am flying to DFW from Abu Dhabi (AUH). They do Pre-Clearance (Immigration) in Abu Dhabi. I arrive in DFW Terminal D at 3;55 PM and flying to DSM (Des Moines) at 6:25 pm. I have 2 hrs and 30 mins in between flight. Do I have to claim my luggage in DFW and re-check again for my flight in DSM? Do I still have to go through immigation and custom? In my itinerary, it says my departure for DSM is at Terminal 0. Is there a Terminal 0? I checked the map of DFW airport, I couldn't find such Terminal 0. Where is Terminal 0?
If both tickets are on the same reservation you don't have to claim your bags at DFW. It says 0 because they don't know the terminal. It will likely depart from Terminal A or C.
Yes it is on the same reservation. Does it mean that I will claim my baggage at my final destination which is DSM? So how would I know which terminal should I depart from? And if I still need to claim my bag in DFW, I have to re-check my baggage, do I have to go through custom? Please help me. Your advice is highly appreciated. Thank you.
You will depart DFW from Terminal A or C. You do not have to claim your bag in DFW. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Abu Dhabi. All you have to do in DFW is take the Skylink train from Terminal D to Terminal A or C.
