  • Connection Time

    I will be arriving from LHR on September 4 by AA51 at 1335, and connecting to AEX by AA3344 at 1625. Is this enough time? Where should I recheck my baggage for AA3344? Thanks.


    That should be plenty of time. You will re-check your bags at the re-check desk right after you clear customs.


    Thank you.


  • Should I Book this Flight?

    Looking at RT flight to Hong Kong. Not sure if HKG to CVG with 2h 6m layover in DFW is enough time to clear customs? How much would it help if all passengers had global entry?


    Yes, that is just enough time. Global Entry would help quite a bit.


  • Domestic travel after tour

    After a tour of Europe, we will be traveling FRA-DFW and clearing Customs. The tour ends in DFW and I made separate arrangements from DEN with a separate booking number. Since it is a totally separate flight, can I get my UA boarding pass and check my bags outside of Customs or do I need to haul all luggage to United flight check-in? I know that I will have to go through security again however I am wondering about the logistics of checking my bags after arrival at DFW. Is there a separate check-in desk for United outside of Customs? The bags cannot be checked from FRA to DEN since it is 2 separate bookings.


    You will need to take the shuttle bus to Terminal E to check your bags with United.

    Traveling from Vegas to Cancun with a connection in Dallas... 55 minutes between flights. Land in terminal C and fly from terminal D! Is that enough time (assuming no delays) and does our luggage get transfered automatically?


    Yes, your baggage will be transferred automatically. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Terminal D. The Skylink train connects all gates and terminals inside security. You have enough time.

    I need help. I'm flying from Fargo to DFW and then on to Tokyo. I have only an hour to transfer. I hope the luggage will be transferred automatically but I'm still very worried. Is it possible to make it?


    Yes, your baggage will be transferred automatically. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate in Terminal B to your departure gate in Terminal D. The Skylink train connects all gates and terminals inside security. You have enough time.


  • Is 2:40 enough time in DFW to go from international to domestic flight
    Aug 25, 2016
    Have a 2:40 layover coming in from Hong Kong at 4:15 and flying to Dulles at 6:55pm. Is the 2:40 layover enough time to go through immigration and so on? Thanks for any help.


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • Frankfurt - Dallas, Dallas - Vancouver

    My flight from Frankfurt to Dallas is delayed, so I might have only one hour to get my connection to Vancouver. Will this be enough (I have checked luggage & am German national)


    both flight with American Airles


    That is unlikely to be enough time unless the flight to Vancouver is also delayed.

    Traveling from Shanghai to DFW and changing planes to Miami. No checked baggage. Do I need to go through security again because I want to buy some containers with liquids at the Shanghai Airport to carry with me to Miami


    Yes, you will have to go through security again in DFW. If you don't have checked bags to put it in you can NOT buy liquids to carry with you at the Shanghai duty free.

    I'm flying from Queretero to London Heathrow via Dallas - land in Dallas at 16:30 terminal B - flight to London is at 18:10 Terminal D. Will I have to clear US customs / immigration and collect my checked in baggage at DFW before my connecting flight and if yes - is 1h40mins enough time?


    Actually both flights will be in Terminal D. You will go through US Immigration and Customs and security but since you are on an International to International connection with both flights on AA then you don't have to claim and re-check your bags. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    We return on a sat from Los cabos at 5:09pm connecting flight to Nashville at 6:29pm. Will that give me and my wife enough time for customs and to connect? Flights are on American Airlines . Thanks


    That's short of the minimum international to domestic connection time at DFW. That will be a very difficult connection.

    I'm flying American Airlines from Puerto Vallarta, MX into DFW. I have an hour and 25 minute layover until I have to catch my American Airlines flight to St. Louis, will this be enough time to go through customs and get on my flight?


    No, that is below the minimum International to Domestic connection time at DFW.


  • Timing for International Flight Connection

    Hi there, I am planning a trip in the future and I fly into Dallas from Grand Island at 9.35am with AA. I am looking at booking a flight to YYZ Toronto from Dallas International leaving at 11.35am with air Canada. Will this leave me enough time to collect my bags from the AA flight and then get to check in to the Air Canada flight or is it too close. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


    It's quite difficult as you will have to take the shuttle bus from Terminal B where you arrive to Terminal E to check your bags with Air Canada after you claim your bags in B. The Bus runs slowly and irregularly. This is possible without checked bags, but with checked bags it makes it difficult.

    I am flying from BHM to DFW then on to ICN. My layover in DFW is only 59 min. will that allow enough time to get to my connection?


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security.


  • Transfer to Cancun flight
    Aug 19, 2016
    I land in Dallas at 1405 and have a flight to Cancun st 1650 but have to clear customs 1st, get my bag and recheck in again. Do you foresee any issues with this?


    Where are you flying into DFW from? If your first flight is domestic then you do not have to do any customs or immigration procedures.


    Flight is from Frankfurt - Booked seperate flight to Cancun so have to clear customs


    On two separate reservations that should be just enough time. Luckily both flights should be in Terminal D.

    I'm traveling from CVG to FAT airports (domestic flight) through DFW on 8/21/2016 on American airlines (with first flight operated by Envoy Air As American Eagle, with a 52 minutes to catch the second flight. Will that be enough time?Will I land in same terminal ? What will happen if I could not catch up the second flight because flight one was somehow delayed?


    Yes, that is enough time. You probably will have to change terminals (although you might not). All terminals are connected inside security by the Skylink train. If you miss your connection, you will be rebooked on the next available flight to Fresno, possibly through Phoenix.
