On 6/26 travelling American Airlines 5796 from FWA to DFW arriving at 9:32 AM Terminal B and transferring to Mesa Airlines flight 5781 to SLP, MX departing at 10:40 AM Terminal D. Is there enough time in the layover to get through the airport and make the flight?
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is take the Skylink Train from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There's also a chance your flight to SLP will depart from Terminal B.
On July 31, I will be flying from SEA to CMH via DFW on American Airlines. My flight arrives at DFW at 7:28 pm from SEA and departs DWF at 8:10 pm for CMH. Will be able to make my connection or will I miss my flight?
It is possible but leaves no time to spare. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security if you need to change terminals.
Will be flying CLE - DFW - TUS on American Airlines. Layover is 1hr and 36mins. Will there be a terminal change? Is it likely I will have time to purchase a meal?

Thank You
Yes, that is plenty of time and probably also gives you time to stop for fast food.
Does Skylink deliver you directly into terminal, or do you have to go back down escalator to get to terminal/gate?
It basically runs on the terminal roof, so yes, there is an escalator to get to the gate level.
Thanks. That's what I figured. Been 35 years since I have been through DFW and I wanted to familiarize myself. Thanks so much
Do I have to take my own bag from one flight to the next? And is there a shuttle from B to A? I think we have a 45 minute layover. Same airline, AA.
You don't have to do anything with your checked baggage in DFW. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security.
checking 2 bags in ACT - arrive DFW at 4:42 will have to retrieve bags and get through customs in DFW to board flight leaving at 538pm - plan use eboarding pass and using passport mobile app to help with customs - Am I kidding myself that this is possible?
You do not have to go through customs in DFW. There is no US Customs when leaving the US and you won't even be leaving the US until you get to Fort Lauderdale. If you are flying into DFW on AA and out on Spirit you have no chance of making your connection because you will have to transfer your bags from Terminal B where you arrive to Terminal E where you depart yourself on the shuttle bus. By the time you get you and your bags to Terminal E, you will have missed the bag check cutoff.
Hi,
We're flying to LA from London in August. Our landing is scheduled at 19:25 and connecting flight at 21:00, so we have 1:34h. We're flying back from LA and arriving in DFW at 21:02 and have a flight back to the UK at 22:10. We're flying with Iberia and American Airlines. What happens if we miss the connecting flight? Thank you!
That is barely enough time if everything goes smoothly on the way there. None of your flights will be on Iberia. The DFW-London flights will be on American or British Airways. If you miss the connection you will be rebooked on the next available flight.
I will be flying from LIM to DFW, then on to SJC with a checked bag and 1 hour and 50 minutes between flights. I will need to get my bag, clear it through customs and recheck it. Will I have to go through security again at DFW? Will this be ample time to make my connection?
Yes, you will have to go through security at DFW. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
We arrive at A29 and depart 61 minutes later from D40. Can we make that connection? I also had heard there is a train you can take?
Yes, the skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security. You have enough time.
Flying in on AA from Nashville and flying out to Heathrow an hour later on AA. Is it feasible? Time needed to get from terminals. Which terminals will I be landing and leaving from?
VM
Yes, that is enough time. you will arrive in Terminal A, B, C, or D and depart from Terminal D. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security.
