first time flying into dallas from phx on AA connecting on BA flight to heathrow one hour 15 minutes later. Do i need to collect my checked baggage or just go straight to my gate which will be in terminal D (arriving in terminal C) ? Thanks
If all flights are on the same reservation you just have to go to your departure gate on the Skylink Train.
I will not have any claimed baggage and I'm flying from Seoul to DFW and I have connecting flight to a domestic flight to Chicago ORD. Do I have to go out after custom and immigration, and then need to get through security check again to get my flight? I will fly with AA and the connecting flight is AA, too. Also, I got global entry (KTN). Thanks in advance,
Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, customs, then go through security and to your departure gate on the Skylink train.
Thanks a lot! :-)
Hey everyone. I am travelling from Singapore to Orlando for a holiday trip with my boyfriend in the US AirForce. This is my first time travelling to US and Im a little nervous about it.

My flight would be : SIN(singapore) to NRT (narita, tokyo)-> NRT to DFW--> DFW to MCO Orlando. The transiting time for both is : 2hours 10 mins.

I would like to know if there is sufficient time for me to catch the connecting domestic flight from DFW to MCO? Do i have to claim and re-check my bags at 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 to your departure gate on the Skylink train. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
thank you!
both flights from NRT to DFW and DFW to MCO are operated by American Airlines btw.
Hey, I have a flight from Amsterdam to Vancouver, via Dallas, the layover time is 2h 12 min, is that enough to get through immigration, customs, claim and submit my baggage again?
I'm flying with British Airways, operated by American Airlines by the way
That should be enough time. You will not have to claim and re-check your bags because you are on an International to International connection all on AA.
Arriving in dFW from Heathrow UK for connection to SFO have I to collect my luggage only have 1hr 30 mins. Also to clear Immigration

SYD-DFW-MKE
Layover time in DFW is1hr 40 mins.
Do I need to retrieve luggage, clear immigration and custom and check in for the DFW-MKE flight?
SYD-DFW is by Qantas.
DFW-MKE is by American Airlines.

Is 1 hr 40 mins sufficient time?

Thanks.

Will we have to collect our baggage then go thru Customs, Immigration there and then get to our next flight desk. (American Airlines)

Gives us 1hr 45mins. Is this plenty of time ?

Is it easy enough to get between terminals?

Hello I departure from alexandria airport in Louisiana to go Korea I stop by Dallas airport and Maritsa airport In Japan... I only have 1:30 layover in Dallas so I am not trying to check any bags in... but if I don't have to pick those up I am going to check my bags in... do I have to pick my bag up at Dallas airport?! It is AA airline all the way through Japan and I use another airline in japan
You do not have to claim your bags in DFW when leaving the US.
I have a layover of 1 hr 48 minutes at DFW, is that plenty of time to clear customs etc?

Also will I need to recheck my luggage or will that go right on through?


Thanks.

Alright that's good to know thanks.

What happens if I don't make it, is there a period of time they will wait before boarding finishes?


If getting through immigration, bag claim and customs/recheck etc takes too long do I need to buy another flight?
They will not wait for you but will rebook you free of charge on the next available American Airlines flight to San Antonio.
Hi there I'm flying from Washington DC to Sydney and connecting in Dallas with qantas and AA. The transit time is 1 hr 7mins - do I need to go through security and customs and pick my bags up? It does not seem like enough time ?
On the way to Sydney all you have to do is take the Skylink train from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Terminal D. You have enough time. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.
