  • Conection Cancun > Las Vegas (Spirit Air)
    Sep 15, 2014
    Hi, Im arriving from Cancun on Spirit (Terminal D) then departing to las vegas (Terminal E) Does spirit have bag re check facilities at terminal D or do we have to take out bags over to terminal E to check them back in? Thanks


    Spirit should be able to take your re-check bags in Terminal D.


  • (LHR) - DFW , DFW - YYC
    Sep 7, 2014
    Hello, I will arrive from LHR to terminal D at 5:55 PM and my next flight departs at 19:40 to Calgary. I´m not sure from which terminal it will departs (on the reservation is D, when I check it on-line there is nothing.. ). Would I be able to make it? Without missing the flight? Thank for an advice!!


    Yes, that should be enough time. If the Calgary flight doesn't depart from D you can go through security in D and then take the SkyTrain to your departure gate.


    Thank you! So the procedure upon arrival will be following (coming from London): at terminal D go throuhg immigration (pasport control), than get my checked baggage, do to the customs, transfer between terminals and in another terminal let checked baggage again to the flight to Calgary? and at the end go through security control? Is not there in Dallas somthing like just drop off my check baggage, when it will have sticker with the final destination of Calgary? Thank you! It seems to me, that 1 hour and 40 minutes is so little time for this procedure..


    Actually this is the procedure - You will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, collect your baggage, go through US Customs, then re-check your baggage immediately afterwards at the re-check desk. Then you will go up to the departure level and go through security. Then, if your flight to Calgary isn't departing from Terminal D, you take the SkyTrain to your departure terminal.

    Arriving on a connecting flight at Dallas at 1600 terminal B transferring to terminal D to catch flight to London at 16.50 . is 50 mins sufficient time to make this connection.


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. The Skylink train connects all terminals inside security and all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Sep 1, 2014
    I need to know how long we realistically need arriving on a Sunday night from Jamaica, then have to connect to another domestic flight on AA. We are travelling with a baby also...


    90 minutes is the minimum connection time and should be OK.

    I am flying from norfolk, virginia to dallas and the connecting flight to narita. Do i have to retrieve my checked in baggages before i proceed to the departure gate? How do i go from a terminal to another terminal?


    No, on the way out of the US you won't have to do anything with your baggage in DFW. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Terminal D. All terminals are connected inside security by the Skylink train.


  • Global entry interview on layover
    Aug 30, 2014
    Hi, I have a lay over in Dallas and had to schedule an Global entry interview while I am there. The only time slot available accounting for a bit of a delay with the interview will leave me an hour to get through security at terminal D. Any advice, will that be enough time to catch my next flight. Thanks in advance.


    Yes, that should be plenty of time.


    Thank you!


  • Connection time 3 hours and 30 minutes

    Hi first of all thank you for your help ,,,, I'll arrive to terminal d Dallas dfw by emeratis airlines at 9:05 am then I'll have an international flight at the same terminal d by American airlines to cancun departure at 12:40 pm. Separate ticket is it enough time for connection? I have to pass security stamp my passport (I'm not USA or Europe citizen ) then collecting my bag then check in to next flight then passing through security. Thanks


    Yes, that should be enough time. You should be out of customs by 10 AM at the latest, so that still leaves you 2 hrs and 40 minutes to check in for your American flight.


    Thank you very much

  • Connecting flight in Dallas
    May 11, 2014
    Hi I will be flying from Austin to San Francisco via Dallas - all on the same carrier, American Airlines. May i check if i will need to go through customs or go directly to the gate for my connecting flight to SF? Do i need to claim my baggage as well? Thanks for the help!


    At DFW, American airlines uses Terminals A & D, American Eagle Terminal B (all with corresponding gates - i.e. gate A-10) Your ticket & overhead screens on arrival will indicate fight & gate numbers. If you need to switch between terminals, I suggest you open www.ifly.com/dfw, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text. Only international arrivals go through customs & re-check-in bags.


    Austin, Dallas and San Francisco are all in the United States, why do you think you'd need to go through customs?
