We are flying American from DCA to DFW and arriving at 7:53 AM. Our connecting flight to SJD (Mexico) departs at 9:10 AM. Not sure what terminal we will arrive at. I am assuming all international flights depart from Terminal D. Do we have enough time to make the connection?
You will arrive in A, C, or D and depart from D. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
I am a mexican traveler flying from Seoul with final destination in Torreón, México. I know once you arrive to an american airport you pick up your luggage, pass it thru the scanners and then check it in (I've done it in LA or San Francisco), nevertheless I've been told Dallas is an exception and that once I check my luggage in Seoul there's no need to pick it up in Dallas and that it will go all the way to Mexico. Since I'm moving back to Mexico I have a lot of luggage and even though that sounds amazing I want to confirm.
Yes, Dallas is an exception. If both flights are on American you just have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security.
So does the same go for if I'm flying from Shanghai to DFW? I have a 3 and half hour layover there before I go from DFW to JAX. I don't have to pick up my checked bags since both of my flights are with American?
my wallet was stolen including driver license & ss card. I have a paper license issued but my flight is this week. Will I be able to fly out of DFW? Original birth certificate or certified copy ok?
Yes, bring your temporary license and birth certificate and if you have something with your picture on it like a work ID or student ID, that wouldn't be a bad idea either.
We fly from Brussels to London, from London to Dallas and from Dallas to Guatemala City, all AA flights. We have 2.00 hours in Dallas. is that enough time and do we have to claim and re-check our baggage?
Yes, that should be just enough time. Since you are on an International to International connection all on AA at DFW, you will go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security, but you won't have to claim and re-check your bags.
where will we go through customs for trip from stl to DFW to shanghai?
You will go through Chinese immigration and customs in Shanghai. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
My family and I will be travelling from MEM to Cancun with a connecting flight in DFW. Will we need to claim and recheck our bags for our connecting flight to Cancun at DFW?
No, assuming both flights are on American you won't have to claim your bags in DFW on the way to cancun. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.
I will be departing DFW for Sydney QF?, Once through security at Terminal D, is there anywhere I can smoke. ? thank you.
DFW does not have any designated smoking areas inside security.
I am in Waco waiting to board to Dallas at 645. I have been told that the airport has shut down. Will this affect my fight to El Paso at 750.

There is no 7:50 PM flight to El Paso. Do you mean the 8:20 flight? As of right now it has no posted delay. No clue when your flight from Waco will actually get to DFW though.
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.
Good morning! I'll be arriving at 07:25 am to DFW and leaving to paris from DFW same day at 05:15 pm. Would it be reasonable to go a mall nearby to buy some stuff? Or time would be too tight??
That should be enough time to shop. Northeast Mall is anchored by Nordstroms. Has many nice shops. Utilize Yelp and Google for more ideas.
