Hello me and if wife are traveling from London to Mexico City and connect in Dallas halfway.
We have 1 hour and 45 minutes to connect - I am a Mexican citizen with a travelers visa and my wife is American.
We arrive in terminal D and leave via terminal C.
Q1: Can we make it in time?
Q2: Can I tag along my wife through the line for american citizens (to save time)? We will bring our marriage certificate if proof is needed.
Both flights should be in Terminal D. You won't be able to go through the US Citizens line since you are entering the US on a Visa and the kiosks can't handle those.
Alright good to know, thanks!
Do you think we can make it with an hour and 45 mins?
Arrive around 3pm on a Monday, don't know how that USB for peak hours.
That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am coming from Phoenix going to hongkong, connecting flight is SFW, is 1 1 hr 35 min enough? DO I need to go out and rechecked in at immigration?
There is no US Immigration when leaving the US. All you have to do in DFW on your way to Hong Kong is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security.
My daughter is flying from Canada to Dallas on American, and transferring in Dallas to go to Tyler, Texas. Does she need to collect her luggage before connecting, and does she change terminals? If so, how does she do this? Thanks!
She will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Canada. All she has to do in DFW is go from her arrival gate to her departure gate. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security.
Thank you!
I reaching from Monterrey to Dallas airport at 6.40pm by AA & next flight Ethiad 8.20 pm . Is this 1hr20 min is enough? Do I need to go through security check & immigration?
Coming from Mexico? Yes, you'll have to go through US Immigration, Claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security. It will be very difficult to do that in such a short amount of time.
Do I pick up baggage when coming in from terminal B to go to Homeland security in Terminal D? DFW is final destination. Do I ride Skylink to terminal D
Where are you flying from and to? Considering all arrivals in to B are domestic, all you should have to do is take the Skylink from B to D unless your flights are on two separate reservations. Or are you just ending your trip in DFW? If so then there's no reason to go to D if you arrive in B.
I fly in for a connecting flight to Phoenix from Ft. Wayne, Indiana. How far apart are the connecting terminals.?
you will arrive in A or C and depart from B. All terminals and gates are connected inside security by the Skylink train.
My daughter and I are leaving from two different terminals. My flight leaves at 8AM from terminal E and my daughter's flight leaves at 9AM form terminal C. What is the best way for me to get her checked in then go to my check in. She has flown many times and some solo since childhood but I'm looking for suggestions on the best way to handle time.
Do either of you have bags to check?
yes, we both have to check our luggages
Then you'll either just have to go to your terminals yourselves and do everything or you can get there really early go to her terminal, check her bags, then take the shuttle to your terminal, check your bags, go through security and then once your plane leaves she can take the Skylink to her departure gate.
thank you so much...I will do just that, thx again
Hi I am flying in from Abu Dhabi, Etihad into Ter D at Dallas and need to take a domestic flight to Phoenix. How much time is sufficient to make it to the domestic flight?
Since you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Abu Dhabi, 2 hour is sufficient if you are flying American to Phoenix.
My daughter is arriving into DFW Terminal D on a British Airways flight from Heathrow and connecting to a British Airways flight to Kansas City. Am I right that this leaves from Terminal A? We are confused about what the procedure is for this connection. Does she have to pick up her luggage and then take it to Terminal A? Could someone please explain exactly what she has to do? She has never made a flight connection before so any advice would be really appreciated! She has 2 hours to make the connection. Thank you.
The flight to Kansas City will be operated by American Airlines. She will arrive in D, go through US Immigration, claim her bags, go through US Customs, re-check her bags at the re-check desk, go through security and take the Skylink train to her departure gate. She should have enough time if everything goes smoothly.
That is really helpful. Thank you very much.
Have an American flight from Memphis to Dallas arriving at 9pm with 55 minute layover to board BA flight leaving at 10pm. Will this be enough time to board....and would have to change terminals? thank you
Yes, that is enough time. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security.
Thank you!
