My non-English speaker aunt will be flying from HKG - DFW on 1/30/2018 on AA 0126 arriving 4:10pm at terminal D, and then taking AA1261 to IAD leaving 6:25pm at terminal C. Will she have enough time to retrieve checked luggage & then rechecked in, take skylink, pass through security and get on the connecting flight? For AA, does she need to carry the reclaimed checked luggage from terminal D all the way to terminal C for recheck in? I never fly at/thru DFW, and can someone please tell me the procedure/steps for getting through, so that I can tell her in advance because she does not speak English. I am nervous for her in case she gets lost or misses the flight. Thanks a lot !!

She will go through US Immigration, claim her bags, go through US Customs, re-check her bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and take the Skylink to her departure gate. Re-check is right after she clears customs in Terminal D.
I land at DFW from New Orleans on an AA flight. Have 52 min to get to Qatar air check in/connection. Is this possible? What would be the fastest route
Is it two separate reservations or all one reservation? If it's all one reservation then you don't have to check in again with Qatar Airways and can go directly to your departure gate on the Skylink Train.
I'm planning on traveling from GSP to CHC with a transfer at DFW. There is a 2 hour stop over. I figure 30 minutes to get off the plane. Will 90 minutes be enough time to go from a terminal to international terminal?
It doesn't take 30 minutes to get off a plane. If both flights are on the same reservation that's plenty of time as all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the Skylink train.
I will arrive at DFW, coming from London at terminal D at 03:45PM. My connecting flight to Mobile Alabama will leave at 5:20PM from terminal B. Is this feasable? Do I need to travel light, with only cabin luggage?
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly. If you can travel without checked bags that will speed things up.
I will arriving on AA flight 2404 from LBB arriving at 0940. Departing on Flight AA125 to Hong Kong departure time is 1040 at terminal D will my luggage be transferred in time for the Hong Kong Flight?
