I'm looking at flying Qantas from Sydney to Toronto with DFW being the transit airport. Do I need to collect my bags and go through customs in Dallas? I have been told that Dallas have changed their customs procedures and I wouldn't need to collect my luggage.
Yes, you no longer have to claim your bags in DFW since you are making an International to International connection. Just US Immigration, Customs, and Security.
Arriving at 3:32pm via American bringing 2 carry and 1 checked luggage. I'm meeting a group for 4:30pm at British Airways to check-in for 6:30 flight. Will 58 minutes be enough to retrieve my checked luggage and make it to British airways terminal?
Where are you arriving from on American? You should have enough time, but you probably won't be there at 4:30. Maybe if you get lucky with the shuttle.
I am US citizen travelling from Narita, Japan to Baltimore, MD, with a two-hour layover in DFW. All flights on American Airlines. Is two hours enough time at DFW?
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Arriving on a flight from Cozumel, MX, clearing immigration and customs then a change of terminals. Is 1.5 hours enough time at DFW?
That's just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
flight from Columbia MO, 6004 connecting to Las Vegas flight 1067. 40 minutes between flights and it says a change of terminals. What do you think, enough time?
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security.
flying into DFW from STl with a 1 hour layover for connecting flight to OGG. will this be enough time?
Flying from STl to OGG with short layover in DFW. Will the connecting flight be in same terminal
STI is Santiago, Dominican Republic. Do you mean St. Louis? If so then no, but the Skylink Train connects all Terminals and gates inside security.
Hi, I'm looking at the following & want to check if I would need to collect & re-check bags, & if the connection is enough time.
I read somewhere that if you book flights at once with same carrier (e.g. BA) then you only need to check bags at first airport & collect at final destination?
OUT:
LHR to DFW arriving 19:25 BA1520
DFW to TUL leaving 22:10 BA1643 (2hr 35min connection time)
The other option here is to stop-over & get the 08:40 or 10:29 the next morning - if this is advised are there hotels in the airport?

RTN:
TUL to DFW arriving 13:46 BA5024
DFW to LHR leaving 15:50 BA1505 (2hr 5min connection time)
It seems if I book American Airlines & BA (rather than all through BA) I could choose the flight to arrive at DFW at 11:45 giving a 4hr 5min connection time instead

Thanks
Note that all of the flights you proposed are actually operated by American Airlines. On the way to Tulsa, in DFW you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, go through security and to your departure gate on the Skylink train. On the way back to London all you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the Skylink train. The proposed itinerary is possible.

I arrive in DFW from Vancouver on an American Airlines flight then catch a Qantas flight on to Sydney Australia. Will I have to go through customs and immigration seeing I will be in transit? Will 1 hour 22 minutes be long enough to connect with my flight? Thank you
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
