  • Toronto to Dallas to Puerto Vallarta, layover approx 1 hour
    Mar 11, 2017

    Hello. Is 1 hour enough time to connect flights at Dallas to Puerto Vallarta and then on return to Toronto Canada. Is our luggage checked through the whole trip, do we have to re-enter security in Dallas? Concerned on all the logistics we are hearing about now in USA.

     

    1 hour is enough time on the way to mexico but not enough time on the way back. On the way to Mexico you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto so all you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. On the way back you will have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security in DFW and need at least 2 hours to do this comfortably.

     

    Thanks for the info. I see its showing 1.5 hours layover on way back, sounds like still not enough...We are Canadian residents/citizens with Canadian passports - worried this is all such an unknown on how we will be treated/ viewed....how long all this will take to get to a well earned vacay in Mexico. ugh......

     

    Canadians are basically the easiest nationality to transit the US. 1.5 hours is doable on the way back, but I personally recommend 2 hours.

     

    Thanks, just to understand fully... do we have to get our luggage in Dallas both ways? Or does it go right through on both trips?

     

    I'm traveling from MKE to Puerto Vallarta via DFW. My flight lands at 9:54 with my connection to PVR leaving at 10:35. Is that enough time for luggage transfer?

     

    cktwilson, you don't have to get your bags either way and you only have to go through Immigration/Customs/Security in DFW on your way back to Canada. Vvs - yes that is enough time if the first flight is on-time.

    Hello we are going to cancun via dfw all AA in biz will 2 hours 5 mins be enough to clear immigration, customs etc? Our other option is miami with 3 hours but this means leaving Abz a few hours earlier :(... all thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

     

    Yes, that is enough time. Since it's an international to International connection, you won't have to claim your bags, just go through US Immigration, Customs, and security.

     

    Thanks ZAP i was certain we had to collect bags, our origin is ABZ which is BA then we are American from Heathrow onwards, do we need a red ITI tag or something ? If I don't see the tag go on in Aberdeen does that mean I must get the bags ? TIA

     

    No, as far as I know they don't use special tags for this at DFW.

    I'm flying with AA from CLT to EZE and I have 2 hours between both flights, Do I have to re-check in my bags or not? And will that be enough time?

     

    All you have to do in DFW on the way to Buenos Aires is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security. You should have plenty of time.

    Hi, I will be flying in from Abu Dhabi (Etihad) and need to go to Phoenix from Dallas airport. How much layover time should I budget for transfer from international to domestic terminal? I also have the option of flying into US through LA and then connecting flight to Phoenix. Since I am travelling with a kid and will need to collect the checked in baggage, which arrival city offers better transfer times and convenience?

     

    If you're buying two separate tickets then you need at least 2.5 hours. DFW is an easier airport to manage than LAX.

     

    Perfect Thanks!

    Looking at a an AA flight from Phoenix that lands at DFW @11:55 am connecting to a British Airways flight leaving for Rome @1:35pm. Is this enough time to from one terminal to the next? The

     

    If both flights are on the same reservation yes, that is enough time. You just have to take the Skylink train from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Terminal D.

    Hi ! I am an international traveler (not US citizen), I will be flying on American Airlines from Paris to Santa Ana (SNA), with a layover at DFW of about 1H40, is at enough to make it ? Will I go through customs in DFW or SNA ? and in DFW do I need to get my bags checked in Paris re-checked ? Thanks for your help !

     

    That is just enough time. 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 to your departure gate on the Skylink train.

    Hi. I'm flying from Boston Logan airport to Dallas. We arrive to Dallas at 8:24am and have to catch our next flight that leave at 9:05am to go to Maui Hawaii. Is that enough time? And do I have to worry about my luggage?

     

    Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Boston is on-time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    We don't know what terminal we arrived in and what terminal we depart to go to Maui. Will that be a problem? We're not flying till May 10th so we don't have the terminal or gate info yet. I'm just worried that going to the connecting terminal is far.

     

    Your flights will be in Terminal A or C. The Skylink connects all terminals and gates inside security.

    My daughter and I and two grandchildren will be flying from Michigan to Corpus Christi with a layover in Dallas of 48 minutes. It says we will be landing at Terminal B and departing from Terminal B, but I am worried that with two little ones and two car seats that we will have a hard time making our connecting flight. Is this going to be possible?

     

    It's possible if the flight from Grand Rapids is on-time. Yes, both flights will be in Terminal B.

    Hi! I am traveling from Seoul to Quito (Ecuador), with a 1h20 layover in DFW. Will that be enough? Do I have to pick up the bags and go through immigration? Thank you!

     

    That is a very difficult connection. Since it's an international to international connection over DFW all on AA, you won't have to claim you bags, but you will still go through US Immigration, customs, and security.

    Then you have enough time. You will arrive in Terminal B and depart from Terminal D. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
