  • connection at DFW
    May 27, 2016
    Hi, I have a flight from LAX to Newark with around 1hr 50 min layover at DFW. Will that be sufficient? Do we have to claim our luggage and be re-checked when we reach DFW?


    both via AA. can someone give me some insights on how the process will be like? it's our first trip to the States. thanks a bunch!


    No, will not have to recheck bags. AA is in 3 of 5 terminals at DFW. You may need to take the overhead Skylink to get to other terminal. Very easy and quick.


  • Bad weather Memorial Weekend DFW
    May 26, 2016
    Suppose to have bad weather on and off over the 3 day weekend in DFW. Most flights will be impacted both arrivals and departures. So all advice given is in perfect weather with everything on time. Make sure to find monitors to see the real times and check flight apps on mobile phone once you land

    Arriving DFW at gate D38 at 11:35am and departing 12:15pm for MBJ. Is a 40-minute connection possible, assuming my flight arrives on time?


    Yes, that is barely possible if the first flight arrives on-time.

    Flying American 996 from EZE DFW DEN. Will the DFW to DEN (2374 ) connection time of 1:58 be suffcient ? Will be using Global Entry program at customs. Thanks


    With Global Entry that should be enough time.


  • 1:25 hrs layover from memphis to Paris
    May 30, 2016
    Is 1 hr 25 mins layover enough from Memphis (BA4879) transit to Paris flight BA1536? Do I have to pass security check? Flying on June 2nd.


    arriving DFW at 3:57 PM, leaving DFW at 5:15 PM


    Yes, that should be enough time. You do not have to do go through security. Just take the skyLink train from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Terminal D. Note that your first flight from Memphis is operated by American.

    flying PVR - DFW - LGA, arriving DFW at 3:05; leaving DFW at 5:30 - what is the procedure relative to customs, baggage and security - and is almost 2.5 hours enough time to accomplish it


    You will arrive in Terminal D, 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 via the Skylink train. You should have enough time.


  • Transfer time sfo to yyz
    May 24, 2016
    I'm traveling from sfo to Toronto thru a connection DFW. Both American airline flights. Is 55 min enough to make the connection?


    Yes, that is enough time. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security.


    That is, if your flight arrives from SFO on time


  • Is 1 hour 10 mins enough time to make a domestic connection
    May 23, 2016
    Is it possible to make a connection flight at DFW in 1 hour 10 mins if you have to change terminals. Both flights are domestic. ATL to DFW to ASE. There's only one flight to Aspen from DFW each day and I'm concerned about there being enough time to change terminals to make the connection flight.


    That's plenty of time. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security.

    Hi I am traveling to Cancun from the Dallas Airport. We are flying in from Tulsa, OK. We have an hour layover in Dallas. We are not checking any bags, just carry ons. Will I be able to make it from one flight to other in an hour with security? I am a first time flyer so I am really nervous!!


    No, an hour is not long enough for an International to domestic connection, even without checked bags. You need to contact American or your travel agent and be rebooked.


  • Connection time
    May 23, 2016
    We are travelling from Sydney to Orlando via Dallas. Our connection time is now just 50mins as AA have re-scheduled their flight. Two questions: 1. Will we have to claim luggage and then go through customs and immigration or just go through customs and immigration? 2. Is 50mins enough time to connect to AA flight to Orlando? Thanks!


    Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, and go through security and to your departure gate. No, 50 minutes is not a legal international to domestic connection. You need to contact Qantas, American or your travel agent and be rebooked.


  • Worried about making connection
    May 21, 2016
    Is 1hour sufficient to make American eagle connection to Montrose CO from American flight from Philadelphia? Montrose flight is the only one that day


    Yes, that is enough time as long as the flight from PHL is on-time. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security.


  • Connection in DFW to board an international flight
    May 21, 2016
    Hi, I am flying from IAH to DFW to SYD. My connection in DFW is only 1 hr, 20 min. Since I will have already checked my bags and gone through security at IAH will I need to do that again at DFW?


    No, all you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security. You have enough time.

    Hi! I am traveling from Paris CDG to DFW tomorrow with a connecting flight to Jackson, MS. My flight from CDG lands at gate D30 at 3:05 pm, and I have to get to gate B1 for a flight leaving at 4:50 pm. Will I have to go through customs, retrieve and recheck my bags, and connect to my other flight in that amount of time? If so, is there enough time to realistically accomplish this?


    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. You do not reasonably have enough time. There is another flight to Jackson at 6:30 and another at 10:00 (also JXN is Jackson, Michigan, Jackson, Mississippi is JAN).


    Thanks for the response. I wasn't aware of the international to domestic turnover process until just now. Is there no way my bags will be sent straight through to Jackson since I purchased the tickets at he same time?


    No, you have to claim your bags to go through US Customs.


  • Connection flight
    May 17, 2016
    Im kind of confused, I have a connection flight in Dallas, I arrive in Terminal B and next flight is in terminal D, am I suppose to take skylink or terminal link?


    The name of the train at DFW is Skylink. The train in Houston used to be called Terminalink but is now called Skyway.


  • Connecting from Madrid to Ohio
    May 16, 2016
    My daughter is arriving at 3pm on an American flight from Madrid, terminal D. Her connecting flight is at 5:15 on Delta, terminal E. She will have to recheck her bags at the Delta ticket counter. Is there enough time to go through customs, and recheck her bags at another airline and then make the flight?


    No, I don't think that's realistically enough time, especially considering how long the security lines at DFW have been recently and the fact that she will have to take an infrequently running shuttle bus from Terminal D to E to re-check her bags.
