Hi, I have a 45 min layover tomorrow and I'm a little nervous about it. Is the skylink the best/quickest option?
I'm arriving at B8, departing at C35.
Yes, that is the best route and you have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
My daughter is flying from Boston to Austin via Dallas. She is a non-USA ctitizen. Will she need to collect her luggage and go through immigration between flights? She only has an hour between flights
Boston, Dallas, and Austin are all located conveniently within the United States of America. There is no Immigration when traveling on domestic flights. She has enough time. She just has to go from her arrival gate to her departure gate.
Hello.
I am travelling American Airlines.
Mexico to DFW. Flight reaches at 4.55pm
DFW to ORD. Flight departs at 6.25pm

Is 1hr 30 minute, layover enough to go through immigration, customs (Non-US citizen), and change terminals in DFW?
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Landing in Terminal D with no checked bags. Have exactly a 2 hour layover before flight to SNA (terminal A). I know I have to go through immigration, customs, and go through security again. MY QUESTION: How do I take the tram from terminal D to A? Do I go through security in Terminal D first and then take the tram?
Yes, you go through security in D and then take the Skylink train to your departure gate. You should have enough time.
We are landing at Terminal C gate C33 and leaving from Terminal A gate A38 45 mins later. Is that possible? Best route or process,please?
Take the Skylink train. You can do it if the first flight is on-time.
My family and I (11 adults total) will be flying from Grand Cayman to Denver with transfer & immigration in DFW. We are looking at flight options that gives us hour & 45 mins for layover. Will this be enough time to go through immigration and get to our next flight? Our flights are all with AA. Thank you!
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
I will fly from tokyo toronto and have transit in Dallas i only have 2 hour transit . am I have enough time? its the same intl airport right?
Yes, that should be enough time. You will go through US Immigration, Customs, and security but won't have to claim your bags.
I am flying American Airlines from GSP to DWF and connecting American Airlines to Hkg. I only have 40 minutes. Do I have enough time to go to the connecting gate? Do I need to take the train? How many stops?
Yes, you will have to take the Skylink train. You have barely enough time if the first flight is on-time.
I am a us citizen and flying from Atlanta to Dallas to hongkong on 9/2. The connection time in dfw is only 1h 13m. When I bought I did not think carefully because I am thinking if they put those schedules together, I should have enough time. I am nervous now. Please help and advise. Thx
That is enough time if both flights are on American. All you have to do in DFW on the way to Hong Kong is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all terminals inside security.
Yes, both flights are American airline. Pray for the flight from Atlanta to Dallas on time. Thanks
I am planning to travel from China to Brazil at the end of August, AA offers me a good deal on the price in the ticket but my concern is that I only have 2.25 hours to transfer my flight from PVG-DWF to DWF to GRU, is it too risky to do it? I am not an American citizen so I need to do the migration and move my luggage. Is there any difference if it is during the weekend?
You will have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security but do not have to claim and re-check your baggage. That should be enough time. If you are Chinese or Brazilian you will need a US Transit Visa.
