    I am going from Toronto to San Francisco, I will to connection in Dallas is 1 hour enough to go from Term C to Term A. Thanks.

     

    Yes, the Skylink train connects all terminals inside security and you will pre-clear US immigration and customs in Toronto.

     

  • 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.

    Hi, we are going to travel from Detroit (DTW) to DFW , and only 45 mins for us from DFW to Hong Kong (HKG) is is enough time???

     

    Yes, that is possible if the flight from Detroit is on-time. The Skylink train connects all terminals inside security.

    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.

    We are travelling from Vegas to Cancun with AA and our stop is DFW is 1hr 50min. Is this enough time to get through security and board the next flight?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. You do not have to go through security in DFW. 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!

     

  • Transfer from Japan flight to RDU

    As the last time my wife flew from RDU-NRT it was a real nail-biter for the RDU-MSP connection, she almost missed her flight. This time, the opposite direction from NRT>>RDU she has more time, but just want to be sure about International>>domestic connections. As well, I believe that she needs to collect her check-in baggage and re-check in.

     

    Is she connecting in MSP or DFW? Yes, when she enters the US She will have to go through US Immigration, claim her bags, go through US Customs, re-check her bags at the re-check desk, and go through security.

     

  • Connecting from American Airlines to Lufthansa at DFW

    Will my daughter have to get her luggage when she arrives at DFW on American to transfer to a Lufthansa flight at DFW to Italy? If so, how does she doe this? How much time should she allow between arrival at DFW and departure on Lufthansa?

     

    Are her tickets on two separate reservations or one reservation? Where is she flying into DFW from?

     

    She will fly in from Phoenix on American on a separate ticket so I imagine he has to collect her luggage and then to go Lufthansa. One more question: She is booked thru United on a flight operated by Lufthansa so where does she check in at...United or Lufthansa? It is thru a site called fareboom to Italy but just a regular American ticket from Phoenix to DFW...Thanks!

     

    Yes, she will have to claim her bags from American and take a shuttle bus to her departure terminal to re-check her bags. Lufthansa doesn't fly nonstop from DFW to Italy. Is she flying to Frankfurt first? If so she will re-check her bags with Lufthansa in Terminal D. If she is connecting in Newark or Washington DC or somewhere else in the USA first, she will re-check her bags with United in Terminal E.

     

    Yes...she connected in Frankfurt to Italy. She leaves from Terminal D at DFW on Lufthansa. How much time should she allow between her arrival at DFW on American to get her bags and then recheck them again at Terminal D from American?

     

    I would want at least 3 hours.

     

  • Any tips for non-English speaker to make connection smoothly?

    Hi ZAP, my friend from China will fly to Mexico via AA (PVG-DFW-BJX) on Nov. 17th. She speaks very little English. She has 2 and a half hour to make connection. From your previous comments, I understand that she doesn't need claim the luggage, but she still need to go through immigration and customs, and then go through the security. It seems like she does not need to leave the terminal D since both sections are international via AA, is my understanding correct? Is there any assistance available for mandarin speaker at DFW? Any comments will be highly appreciated.

     

    Since she is coming from China i'm sure there will be people on her flight that speak both Chinese and English that she can ask for help. Also, does she speak Spanish (she won't be able to do much in Leon if she doesn't)? Lots of people at DFW speak Spanish.

     

    Thanks for your quick response. No, unfortunately she doesn't speak any Spanish either. That's the part make me nerves. Thanks for reminding me that she can ask other passenger for help. I assumed my other understandings are all correct?
