  • Connecting time

    I arrive to DFW from MIA at 9:36am, leaving to Calgary at 10:55am, do I have enough time to connect?


    Yes, all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security.

    I'm arriving DFW at 8.25am & have a connecting flight to Boston at 10.30am on the same American Airlines. Do I have enough time to clear customs and catch connecting flight?


    Sorry, I didn't make it clear in my initial post, I am transitting at DFW from Narita, international flight and catching my connection flight to Boston


    Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    I am flying Mongtego Bay to Boston doing connecion in DFW with 1 hr 35 min connecting time. Is this enough time to get through US Customs?


    That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. Personally I'd rather have at least 2 hours.

    Arriving DFW on AA339 at 4:43 PM on 6/23 from PVR. Leaving DFW at 6:40 on AA 3693 for FAR. Enough time?


    Yes, that should be just about enough time if your flight from Puerto Vallarta is on-time.


  • do i have enough time

    I arrive in Dallas 8:49pm 13th July and leave Terminal D 10:15pm same day. Do I have enough time to get my bags off the American Airlines flight and checking on Qantas flight?


    If you purchased both tickets on the same reservation then you don't have to do anything with your bags in DFW - just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the Skylink train.

    My flight itenary has been changed without me knowing, I'm now traveling from Dublin to Chicago, then Chicago to Dallas, then Dallas to Vegas all together. I have been made aware I have 40mintues time slot to get of the plane from Chicago, and onto a plane to Vegas. Is this enough time?


    What airlines are you flying? I can't answer your question without that information.


    With Anerican Airlines


    Also only have hand luggage


    You have enough time. The Skylink train connects all terminals inside security and there's a decent chance both flights will be in the same terminal.


    Ok great Thankyou! Fingers crossed there's no delays

  • How long do INeed?
    Jun 4, 2016
    Hi I am wanting to book.a flight from Heathrow to Oklahoma and all flights seem to involve a change at DFW. Realistically could you advise how long I would need to collect bags, go through immigration and transfer to the next flight. Some offered connections seem very quick and I am concerned about not making connections, as only ever flown direct before. Thanks


    About 2 hours is the minimum I recommend.


    Thanks for your quick reply That's great, I was worried airline website was not suggesting long enough but should be ok then!

  • International flight and then USA connection
    Jun 4, 2016
    My flight from Mexico will be arriving DFW at 8:45 a.m. on a Tuesday with a connecting flight at 10:15 a.m., both using AA. Will I have to go through immigrations, collect my checked bag then go through security in that order, and have enough time? I purchased my tickets long ago before news of delays. Thank you.


    Yes, you will have to do all that. You should have just enough time if everything goes smoothly. Where in the US are you flying? Arriving in the morning is good as it allows more opportunities for rebooking if you miss your connection.


    I'm flying to Newark. What do you recommend about booking another flight?

    Hi. My flight arrives on Saturday 5 AM at DFW and I have a connection for a domestic flight in 1hour 40 minutes. It is enough time to make the connection and custom.


    At that early time in the morning that should be just about enough time.


  • Enough time for international -> domestic transfer?

    I am flying in from Madrid to Dallas then need to make a connection to Boise. Originally had an hour and a half for the stop but now only have 30 minutes after a delay. I'm American and don't have to check any bags. Can I make it?


    I really doubt it.


  • LHR to DFW (skip leg to LFT) DFW to COS
    Jun 1, 2016
    We are flying LHR to DFW and then have a leg going to LFT but we need to skip this leg. We have purchased instead a DFW to COS flight. When we go through customs, can we pick up our bags and check in for the COS flight, or will our bags continue to LFT? Would we need to cancel the leg to LFT?


    Yes, you will claim your bags and can them check them to COS. However, if you no show your flight to LFT and it is not the last flight of your reservation, the entire rest of your reservation may be canceled.


    Thank you! It is.

    I land in DFW from Memphis at 6:04pm and have a 7:22pm flight to Mexico on a Sunday. Will I have enough time as an Australian national? All advice is appreciated!

  • Enough time to go through customs
    Jun 1, 2016
    I will travel from Cabo thru DFW to connect to my home state. Is an hour enough time to go through customs on a Friday in July? The other option is a 5 hour layover and I'd love to avoid that if possible.


    No, an hour is not enough time for an international to domestic connection through DFW.
