    Planning my flight from ND to Thailand, with connecting in DFW and Seol. It appears that the layover in Dallas is only 1 hour. Is this enough time? Since we will be leaving the USA from Dallas to enter Korea, do we have to claim and re-check bags in Dallas? Or, once we check in North Dakota does that get us through?


    You don't have to do anything with your bags in DFW on your way to Asia. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.


  • Travelling from Sydney to Toronto via Dallas.

    Hi there, we are travelling in July to Toronto via Dallas. Arr 1.30pm connecting flight 3.30pm. Is this doable. Do we have to go through immigration and customs even though we are transiting. Do we recheck bags? Is this enough time? PS tickets have been bought separately ie syd- dallas and dallas- toronto.


    Yes, that is just enough time. You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags with the second airline, go through security and to your departure gate. What airline are you flying to Toronto? You have barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    We arrive from SYD into DFW and have 90 minutes to catch our flight to RSW is that enough time?


    That's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Short international TO international connection
    Jan 17, 2017
    Hello, my family of four is coming from Cozumel to Dallas, then Dallas to Sydney. Have looked at previous comments and they are all domestic to international or vice versa. Only have 1 hour and 15 minutes to make connection, is this possible? If not please advise. Thank you


    No, that's not enough reasonably enough time unless the flight from Cozumel arrives early.


    It's in the Same terminal. Will it still be an issue? Could we make it if we run? And also do we have to recheck in luggage or does it go straight through to the next plane?


    It's possible if everything goes perfectly. Your bags MAY go straight through since it's an international to international, but since the second flight is on Qantas, they may not. Also, you will still have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security.


  • Connection from Washington DC to Sydney
    Jan 16, 2017
    I am arriving at 2050 hrs from Washington and have a flight from Dallas Fort Worth to Sydney at 2200 hrs. Is 1hour 10 min enough to make the connection? What is minimum time needed for connection?


    Yes, that is enough time if both flights are on the same reservation. All you have to do is take the Skylink train to Terminal D and board your flight.


  • Syd- DFW- Miami with a 90 mins connecting time
    Jan 16, 2017
    Arriving on QF flight at 13.00 - having to go through customs, pick up baggage and recheck. Any idea whether flights arrive early from Australia? Flight to Miami leaves at 14.30 - is this cutting it fine or should I consider carry on luggage in order to make it. many thanks!


    This is cutting it close and only bringing carry-ons will help.


    Many thanks - appreciate your reply


  • Is one hour enough?
    Jan 16, 2017
    GPT>DFW>SJT....Is 1h 1m or 1h 49m enough time to get to the next flight (The one going to San Angelo)? This is my first time flying since I was a young child so I am unfamiliar with Airports other than the obvious. The flight is set for next Thursday (19th)


    Also, I forgot to mention, but does DFW transfer your bags from one flight to your next? Or do you have to go through another process? Thanks


    Yes, that should be enough time. Yes, your bags will be transferred for you. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal B


  • Customs CDG to DEN via DFW
    Jan 12, 2017
    We are flying from CDG, connecting through DFW on to DEN. We only have 1hr 25 min. Is that enough time?


    That's below the minimum International to Domestic connection time in DFW. You have a chance though if you don't have checked bags and the flight is on-time or early.


  • Is 2 hour enough to connect?
    Jan 11, 2017
    I am not a US citizen or green card holder. I will arrive with American Airline at Dallas at 9am and my next AA flight (probably the same terminal D as well) is 11am. I only have carry-on bags, so no need to claim or re-check in luggage. Is 2 hour layover time enough for my next flight?


    to clarify: I fly from Mexico, stop at Dallas and then fly to ORD.


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • 53 minutes enough?
    Jan 11, 2017
    I am flying into DFW and on to Springfield, MO, with only 53 minutes to connect the flights. Is this enough time for one who is unfamiliar with the DFW airport?


    Yes that should be enough. Once you landed, check the scrren to see your connection flight. If you landed in different terminal (A to E), be sure to take the train upstairs to next terminal.


  • Transfer from Mexico to Fort Wayne, Inc
    Jan 10, 2017
    American Airlines has recently changed our flight where we had a two hour layover to 1 hr 22 min. Is that enough time to get through customs and make our next flight?


    That is below the minimum International to Domestic connection time. Call them and reject the schedule change and request an earlier flight from Mexico if there is one. It's unlikely there's a later flight to Ft. Wayne.


  • One hour connection
    Jan 8, 2017
    We will be flying into Dallas from St.louis with just one hour to connect to Sydney AUS. Will we make the flight? How about our luggage? Why would they sell such a tight connection??!!


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security.

    I'll be landing at DFW at 9:05am from India. My connecting flight home to Amarillo is at 10:40am. Can I make it?


    There are no nonstop flights from India to DFW - where are you stopping first?


  • Transfer in Dallas
    Jan 5, 2017
    So i am transferring in Dallas. Coming from London, and going to Mexico City. Flying American Airlines. Is 1h and 20min enough time?


    Realistically, no that is not enough time. 90 minutes is the official minimum, but I recommend at least 2 hours. However it's not impossible if the first flight arrives a bit early.


  • Short Layover
    Jan 4, 2017
    Hello I'm flying from Cleveland to Dallas and Dallas to Seoul, but I only have 45 minutes duration between my connecting flights. Do you think I'll make it? Also, if ever I'm not able to make it, do you think the airline will set up the next flight for me? I'm moving from Terminal C to D and both flights are American Airlines.


    It's possible but it doesn't leave any time to spare. Yes, if you miss your connection you will be rebooked on the next day's flight to Seoul or would be rebooked to Seoul through Tokyo.
