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 arrive from Austin with a connection to Shanghai, all on American Airlines. I have a 1 hour 5 min. layover. Is that enough time for Immigration, Customs, and Security?
There is no US immigration or customs or special security 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.
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.
I am traveling to Buenos Aires from Montreal, Canada, with a connecting flight at O'Hare, and at DFW. But I only have 1:29 lay-over in Dallas, Is this enough time to make my connection to my international flight?
Yes, 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.
I am flying from Toronto to Sydney Australia with 1 hr 35 transfer in Dallas. Is this enough time? Do I need to recheck luggage
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 if both flights are on the same reservation. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security.
Flight AA 778 Austin to Hong Kong has 1 hour 35 min layover in Dallas is this enough time to catch Flight AA 137. Do we have to go through customs? Are the flights in the same terminal?
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Gates will likely not be in the same terminal. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security.
I have two hour layover at DFW from Lima, if it enough connection time to SFO? I know I need to go through US customs and re-check bag at re-check desk, is this re-check desk means AA check in counter? or there is a particular area for re-check only?
That should be just enough time. The re-check desk is a special desk for passengers coming off of international flights connecting to other flights. It's just after you clear customs, you can't miss it.
International flight (America Airlines) from China to Greensboro. 13 hours overnight layover at DFW. I know I have to get luggage and go through Custom. Same airline. Can I recheck the baggage immediately? Otherwise I have to take the luggage with me and recheck the next day.
You will have to re-check your bags the next morning.
I plan to take a flight that lands in DFW at 13:35 (flying with American Airlines but operate by Qantas on Aug 21, 2016) with 5-6 checked luggages. My connecting flight will be with American Eagle (on a single booking) departing DFW at 15:25. This gives me 1 hour 50 minutes to make my connecting flight. My query (i) Is the layover time enough, (ii) Do I need to collect my check baggages at DFW and check them in again ?

I thank you very much for your response.
You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly. Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and take the Skylink train to Terminal B where you will depart.
