We will be travelling from Tallahassee to Shanghai in June 2017. We've never flown international before, so we aren't sure how the connections work.
An option for the outbound trip has a 1:16 layover. Seems close, but can probably work. What are your thoughts?
On the return side, there is a 1:40 layover. Is that enough time? I'm not sure what is involved on the return trip.
When you leave the country all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates in DFW inside security. On the return trip you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate on the Skylink train.
Thank you! That makes sense. A 76 minute connection sounds do-able on the outbound side - not sure if we want the extra stress. Something to think about. Thank you!
Hi, We are flying from Shanghai to Cancun via DFW with AA. Do we need to get an ESTA and go through immigration? I feel we would just transfer internally from one flight to the next and our baggage would be taken to the next flight....
Yes, you will go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security. If you are a citizen of a Visa Waiver Program country other than Canada you need ESTA. If your nationality requires a visa, you need a transit visa.
I am going to fly from Seoul/Incheon International Airport(ICN), South Korea, to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport(AUS), connecting in DFW Airport. Is 2h 20m enough time for going through immigration->finding my luggage->re-checking the luggage->being on next flight?
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I have 40 minutes to get from Terminal B to Terminal A. Will this be enough time? (I'm a nervous wreck about it)
From other posts I'm seeing, the Skylink takes you from one terminal to the other and that should be plenty of time. I am also arriving Terminal B with connection in Terminal A tomorrow. I plan to wear flat shoes, just in case. :-)
