    We are flying into Dallas and then on to Fort Lauderdale. Landing at Term D not sure what term we take off from. Will we have to clear customs / Immigration etc. Or will we be just transit passengers? As we only have 1hr and 25mins connection time. Thanks for any help

     

    Where are you flying into DFW from? That is fairly important.

     

    We are flying in from London Heathrow

     

    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 terminal on the Skylink train. You have barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.

    I am travelling from Detroit to Dallas and i have one hour to go to terminal D and connect to Qatar Airways. Is this enough time? I may be connecting from terminal c to terminal d. Do i need to pass thru security check again or i can connect directly. no baggage only carry on. I appreciate your help.

     

    You do not have to go through security again, you can just take the Skylink train to your departure gate in D.

     

  • MTL to DFW and DFW to NRT

    I have a flight doing Montreal (Canada) to Dallas and Dallas to Tokyo (NRT), the connection is from 9h46 to 10h45 (59 minutes). Is it enough? Both are with AA and I don't have a checked in luggage, only my carry on. Thanks whoever can assist me.

     

    That is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Dallas is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security. The Airport code for Montreal is YUL.

     

    Thank you so much.

    Hi All, I have been ticketed (via QANTAS) to transit in DFW for 1hr 03 mins. Flying in from BWI going to SYD. Is this a reasonable time to make the SYD flight. It appears arriving into Terminal A, departing from Terminal D. All flights are codeshare QF. Thanks!

     

    Your first flight is operated by American. Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security.

    We are arriving at DFW 9:54 am terminal C and have a connecting flight at 10:34 terminal A. Will we make it ? Where is the closest skylink

     

    There are two skylink stations in every terminal. You won't know your exact gates until the day of your flight.

  • Is 1h30min enough for International to Int connection with AA?

    Hello, I want to buy a flight with American Airlines from Europe to Vancouver going through DFW. However, the connecting time is only of 1h30min. Would you know if it is too tight? Should we go through US passport control or customs? I would assume that if it is a single journey with the same airline, I would not have to pick my luggage and check it again. Thank you very much in advance for any help you could provide.

     

    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and security. You will not have to collect your bags and re-check them if both flights are on AA since it's an International to International connection. 90 minutes is just enough time.

     

    Thank you very much for your answer.

    Hi. We are thinking of booking an American Airlines flight from Boston to Fresno that has a connection to American Eagle in DFW. The layover is only 55 minutes. Is that enough time to make the connection?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security.

     

    Thank you!

    We have a flight on American Airlines from JAN with a 56 min layover to connect to LAX. Is this enough time?

     

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

    I will be landing in at gate C31 at 4:30 and then my flight takes off at 5:10 at gate C8. Is that enough for me and my checked luggage to make it? Or should I change my flight? *General flight time has been changed for my safety, but I do only have 40 min

     

    Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. Note that the first time is not the "landing time". It's the scheduled gate arrival time.

    Planning my flight from ND to Thailand, with connecting in DFW and Seol. It appears that the layover in Dallas is only 1 hour. Is this enough time? Since we will be leaving the USA from Dallas to enter Korea, do we have to claim and re-check bags in Dallas? Or, once we check in North Dakota does that get us through?

     

    You don't have to do anything with your bags in DFW on your way to Asia. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.

     

  • Travelling from Sydney to Toronto via Dallas.

    Hi there, we are travelling in July to Toronto via Dallas. Arr 1.30pm connecting flight 3.30pm. Is this doable. Do we have to go through immigration and customs even though we are transiting. Do we recheck bags? Is this enough time? PS tickets have been bought separately ie syd- dallas and dallas- toronto.

     

    Yes, that is just enough time. You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags with the second airline, go through security and to your departure gate. What airline are you flying to Toronto? You have barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.

  • Short international TO international connection

    Hello, my family of four is coming from Cozumel to Dallas, then Dallas to Sydney. Have looked at previous comments and they are all domestic to international or vice versa. Only have 1 hour and 15 minutes to make connection, is this possible? If not please advise. Thank you

     

    No, that's not enough reasonably enough time unless the flight from Cozumel arrives early.

     

    It's in the Same terminal. Will it still be an issue? Could we make it if we run? And also do we have to recheck in luggage or does it go straight through to the next plane?

     

    It's possible if everything goes perfectly. Your bags MAY go straight through since it's an international to international, but since the second flight is on Qantas, they may not. Also, you will still have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security.

    I am arriving at 2050 hrs from Washington and have a flight from Dallas Fort Worth to Sydney at 2200 hrs. Is 1hour 10 min enough to make the connection? What is minimum time needed for connection?

     

    Yes, that is enough time if both flights are on the same reservation. All you have to do is take the Skylink train to Terminal D and board your flight.
