    Have an hour and 15min layover to catch our flight to SJO. Do we have enough time?

     

    Flight are on American Airlines

     

    That is enough time. 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.

    Hi, I take AA from Indianapolis to Seoul and only have 55 mins layover at DFW. I afraid if the time is too close or I need to reschedule it.

     

    That is enough time. 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 don't need to go customs? Because I am an international student here.

     

    There is no US Customs when leaving the United States.

     

    Got it and thank you so much!

    Hi, I am traveling from India on Qatar Airways(HYD-DOH-DFW-BHM) and have a Layover of 1hour 40 mins at DFW to the connecting flight which is operated by AA. Will the time be sufficient to go through customs and also do I need to re-check my bags? Thanks

     

    That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. Yes, you will have to 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 your departure gate.

  • Tallahassee to Shanghai connections in DFW

    We will be travelling from Tallahassee to Shanghai in June 2017. We've never flown international before, so we aren't sure how the connections work. An option for the outbound trip has a 1:16 layover. Seems close, but can probably work. What are your thoughts? On the return side, there is a 1:40 layover. Is that enough time? I'm not sure what is involved on the return trip.

     

    When you leave the country all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates in DFW inside security. On the return trip you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate on the Skylink train.

     

    Thank you! That makes sense. A 76 minute connection sounds do-able on the outbound side - not sure if we want the extra stress. Something to think about. Thank you!

    Hi, We are flying from Shanghai to Cancun via DFW with AA. Do we need to get an ESTA and go through immigration? I feel we would just transfer internally from one flight to the next and our baggage would be taken to the next flight....

     

    Yes, you will go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security. If you are a citizen of a Visa Waiver Program country other than Canada you need ESTA. If your nationality requires a visa, you need a transit visa.

    I am going to fly from Seoul/Incheon International Airport(ICN), South Korea, to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport(AUS), connecting in DFW Airport. Is 2h 20m enough time for going through immigration->finding my luggage->re-checking the luggage->being on next flight?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    AA just notified me that our return flight change from So America is allowing us only 1:45 to make our connection to SAN. That doesn't seem like enough time to me..what's your expert opinion?

     

    It is enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Hello. I am flying from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico to NJ with a stop in DFW. Is 1hr30mins enough time to go thru immigration, get bags and make it to connecting flight. Im flying on AA.

     

    That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. I think that realistically it i snot enough time, especially during a busy season.

    I have 40 minutes to get from Terminal B to Terminal A. Will this be enough time? (I'm a nervous wreck about it)

     

    From other posts I'm seeing, the Skylink takes you from one terminal to the other and that should be plenty of time. I am also arriving Terminal B with connection in Terminal A tomorrow. I plan to wear flat shoes, just in case. :-)

    Flight 1221 from Austin is scheduled to land at 7:37 pm and I need to be on flight 2583 to Detroit at 8:25 pm. Both are American Airlines flights. Will I be able to make it such a close time frame?

     

    Yes, that is possible. The Skylink train connects all terminals inside security.

  • Seoul to Buenos Aires with connection in Dallas (all American Airlines

    Hello, we are a portuguese couple going from Seoul to Buenos Aires with a connection in Dallas. We do not have US Visas and we are worried that the flights might be from different terminals (although all flights are with AA). Does anyone know if it is possible for foreigns to move between terminals without a tourism visa? Many thanks in advance, Ana

     

    Both flights will be in Terminal D. Portuguese citizens do not need a visa to transit or visit the USA, but you need to complete ESTA. In DFW you will have to go through US Immigration, US Customs, and security. You will not have to claim your bags since it is an AA to AA International to International connection.

     

    Thank you so much, the process is very different from what we are used so we're confused! We just completed ESTA, let's see if see if we get it!
