We are arriving DFW on AA (separate ticket) and departing on Delta to ATL then to CDG. I know that we will have to claim our bags at DFW and recheck into Delta. Will we be able to utilize the recheck bags desk or will we have to go with our bags to check in at Delta via shuttle?
No, you will have to take the shuttle bus to Terminal E to re-check your bags with Delta.
Thank you!
Is 45 minutes enough time to get from terminal c to terminal d ? I'm flying from sat to dfw and then to fra in sept
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Flying from Heathrow to Austin, with a connection at DFW. Will I have to go through customs at DFW, or can I do customs in Austin?
In DFW you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and take the Skylink train to your departure gate.
Can I make my connection to Dulles if I am flying from Guatemala City to Dallas and then on to Dulles with only 1 hour and 20 minutes for my transfer? All legs of the flight are with the same airline (United). I just called United and asked the representative if I would be okay- he stated I did not have to go through customs and that I could check my luggage straight through to Dulles. After reading other travelers inquiries, I am confused. The United representatives support seems contradictory to your advice. What are your thoughts?
United does not fly from Guatemala City to Dallas. Whoever you talked to has no idea what they are talking about. You go through US Immigration and Customs at your point of entry into the US.
Hi, I'm flying ONT-DFW arriving at 1pm, connecting DFW-FCO (Rome) leaving at 2pm, all on AA.

is 1 hour enough to make the connection?

Hi
I'm flying with Norwegian Passport to Dallas from Heathrow on an AA flight operated by BA. My transfer is an AA flight to Bogota. Hoping that 2 hours is enough.
Yes, that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Flying with US passports on AA Heathrow to Dallas, landing at Gate D and then have a connection to Reno, via AA at Gate A. Traveling as a single parent w/ 2 toddlers and 2 checked bags.

What is the connection process and will 2 hours be enough?
You will 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. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Arriving from Canada YYZ on American Airlines AA 1040 at 2109. Dep for Sydney Australia on QF 8 at 22.15. Is 1hr 6 mins sufficient time to make the connection and which terminal do we arrive and depart from?
Thanks
You will arrive in Terminal A, C, or D and depart from Terminal D. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the Skylink train as you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto.
Thanks, hate to have to swim!
