Could you explain where we will go to import our cat and then make our connection? We have about 2 hours between flights.
i let my email i really apriciate an answer
T-0 means they don't know your departure terminal. You will depart from Terminal A, B, C, or D if it's on American. After you go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security. You will take the Skylink train to your departure gate if it's not in Terminal D.
If I'm flying out of DFW on united for DC, which terminal is it?
United uses terminal E.
If I'm flying into DFW from SEA-TAC on American Airlines and leaving on American Airlines for Frankfurt, which terminal(s) will I be using?
You will arrive in Terminal A, C, or D and depart from Terminal D. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security.
Arriving terminal E and need to connect with Latam Airlines (operated by American Airlines) to Lima Peru. Any idea what terminal they use?
Your American Airlines flight to Lima will depart from Terminal D. If it's two separate reservations you will have to claim your bags from the first airline and take a shuttle bus with your bags to Terminal D to re-check them with American.
Sorry, I should have said--arrival is on Air Canada, so 2 separate airlines/reservations. I have 2.5 hours. Is this enough time?
That's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly. At least you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Canada.
Hi, I'm landing from North West Arkansas at 5.52pm to terminal B and my next flight DEPARTS at 7.15pm to London UK from terminal D.

Is this enough time to get through security etc? I probably need to be at the gate no later than 6.45 surely.
You don't have to go through security if both flights are on the same reservation. All you have to do is take the Skylink Train from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Perfect, thanks!
I will arrive on UA5315 into terminal E and need to connect to EY160 at Terminal D I will have 80 mins connection time. Will I need to exit Terminal E and check in Terminal D or can I transfer terminals on the skylink and pickup my EY ticket internally? Both tickets will be in First class if this makes any difference?
If you have checked bags you don't have enough time as you have to claim your bags, take them on a shuttle to Terminal D, re-check them and go through security. Without checked bags you can do it.
I have a flight next week from Sydney Australia into Dallas terminal D with only 1hr before my connecting flight to Memphis.
my flight back is from Nashville to Dallas then onto Sydney Australia with only a 1 hr landing in Dallas T2 to catch the flight to Sydney . Does my luggage go straight through and will I have enough time ? Thank you Dee
That is not enough time for your connection on the way to Memphis - you need at least 2 hours. On the return, Dallas doesn't have "T2". Your bags will go straight through though on that trip and 1 hour is enough time.
Is it worth paying for American's Five Star Connection service if traveling with 2 year old and 8 month old and needing to change terminals with a one hour connection time.
For a domestic connection, you could probably manage on your own. The Skylink makes it pretty easy.
Thanks! The connecting flight is to Honolulu.
Looking at flying AA into DFW, landing @ 17:49 pm and then a Qantas departure @ 19:55 w/2 kids. Is this enough time?
If the first flight is on-time and domestic that is plenty of time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all terminals inside security.
thanks! So 90 minutes is till the time needed for international flights to be in the airport?
You can do a domestic to International connection in less, more like 60
on the return, Qantas gives me an option of connecting on an domestic AA flight 1 hour and 25 minutes after scheduled landing. And they don't give any warning signs about this being too close. Is it on them if I'm late?
Yes, it is on them to rebook you, but it's always subject to availability. You'll get little to nothing in the way of compensation and may be stuck in Dallas for quite awhile.
