    Hey, I am traveling from Los Angeles to Budapest with 1 hour layover in DFW airport and 1h 30min layover in London Heathrow. Will it be enough time to change the planes? Thank you!

     

    Yes, all you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates at DFW inside security.

    I am traveling from Toronto to Austin with an hour long layover in Dallas. Will this be enough for me to complete the immigration procedures? Also, will I have to collect my own bags and check them in again, or will they meet me at Austin directly?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Dallas is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security. You have enough time.

    If the layover is overnight you will have to claim your bags in DFW. If it is all during the day you won't.

    I will be flying in to DFW from Australia. I was wondering how long of a lay over I need to get through customs and be able to catch a flight out to St. Louis.

     

    If both flights are on the same reservation 2 hours is sufficient if everything goes smoothly.

    I am flying to from Des Moines to Cancun with a layover in DFW. Is 1 hour enough time for this layover? Do we need to go through customs since we are flying internationally?

     

    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. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security. You have enough time if the flight from Des Moines is on-time.

     

    Thank you!!

    Hi All, Im travelling back to Toronto via Dallas from Maui arriving at 8:00 am. Is this enough time to go downtown, even just to get a little taste of Dallas? Thanks!

     

    You'll arrive right at rush hour and honestly, there's very little to see in downtown Dallas. I suggest having a nice leisurely breakfast at the airport.

     

    Thanks Zap. Just wasn't sure if I'll ever get a chance to even glimpse at Dallas again. Agreed rush hour, stuck in traffic, expensive cabs may not be the best use of my time. Thanks

    From Toronto to Maui and layover in Dallas... is 1 h 30 min enough for catching our connection? AA is the airline. I don't believe we have to reclaim our checked luggage and go through custom again, right? Many Thanks!

     

    Yes, that is plenty of time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security.

    Hello, I will be flying Frankfurt, Germany to Dallas, and then have another flight to Minneapolis. Will I have to get my bags, go through immigration/customs, and recheck them? I'll be traveling alone with a small infant, so I am nervous about carrying bags/stroller/car seat and the baby. Any suggestions welcome!

     

    Yes, in DFW you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security and then take the Skylink train to your departure gate. This assumes both flights are on American and are on the same reservation.

    That should be barely enough time if everything goes smoothly. If you do miss your connection there should be one later flight to Lafayette that evening.
