I have a layover time of 1 hr 30 min on arriving from London to Terminal D, will that be enough to clear immigration, customs and security and change terminal?
It's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
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.
im flying from london to lafayette with a layover in dallas with 1h50min is it enough time to go through customs, while arriving aat 4pm( according to google one of the busiest times in dallas airport
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.

Have a 10 hours layover on October 21st…..Is there a rest lounge in the airport that I can nap for a few hours before my next flight? Thanks
If the layover is during the day, yes, you can buy a day pass to the American Airlines Admirals Club.
Traveling with non citizen from London with a 12 hr layover entry back to mex city. He has to remain in airport for next day flight?
If he doesn't have a US Transit Visa he will not be allowed on the flight to DFW.

I'm planning from seoul to DFW, and then tranfer to PITTSBURGH on next morning. Do I have to recheck baggae on next morning ? Can I recheck baggage as soon as arriving DFW ? I want to carry small bag to the hotel near airport.
You will have to take your bags with you to the Hotel. You won't be able to re-check your bags until the next morning.
