  • International to Domestic in peak Summer
    Apr 6, 2016

    Hi, Am travelling with wife and 2 children and want to plan the best connection with the peace of mind that we won't have to be rushing. Landing from CDG at DFW Terminal D, then onwards to a Domestic connection on a separate ticket (destination still TBD, probably LAX or LAS). From experience, immigration can take a looong time as an EU national (thinking eg JFK). Given this is Peak Summer (29 July), Friday afternoon (land at 3 PM), what is the earliest we could safely schedule an onward flight without rushing? Thanks!

     

    6 or 6:30 PM would be the earliest flight I would consider booking. Maybe on the later end of that if you're considering booking an airline other than AA to your destination, since you will have to take the shuttle bus to Terminal E in that case after you clear customs.

     

    Great, thanks ZAP! Will probably catch an AA connection, was thinking around 7 or 8 PM to be absolutely on the safe side and take it easy, perhaps spending some time relaxing at the lounge. Make sense? Thanks a lot!!

    What is the fastest way, walk or take the train? I have a 90 minute connection (international to domestic).

     

    The train is almost always faster than walking. You have barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.

    I am arriving from Japan Narita at 4.30pm on a Sunday, transferring to a 6.30pm flight. Is this 2 hours enough? Will I be able to save time if I do not check any bags in? My experience with other US airports (esp Washington) is that the main bottleneck is when they need to scan the bags for liquids again.

     

    Yes, you will have just enough time. Yes, not checking bags will save you a little time.

     

  • Question about Customs time in Dallas

    We arrive in Dallas from Mexico at 4:47PM and have a connecting flight to Seattle at 6:40PM. Is this enough time to get through Customs and make our flight?

     

    That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    I'm planning on booking a flight for my folks to come visit Korea this fall. The flight to Korea has a 50 minute layover in Dallas between PNS and ICN, and I'm worried that this isn't enough time. My folks are in their sixties and not experienced international travelers, so I'm worried that they might get lost in the terminal and miss their flight (never mind that the flight from Pensacola might be delayed). Last year when I traveled the same route, I opted to take a connecting flight in Tokyo rather than miss the flight to Incheon, but I would prefer to not have to put my folks through another flight if it's possible. So my question is, is 50 minutes really enough time? Thanks!

     

    Yes, it is enough time. All gates at DFW are connected inside security by the Skylink train. All they have to do if both flights are AA is take the train from their arrival gate in Terminal B to their departure gate in Terminal D.

    Hi! Is 2hrs 6min long enough to make an international-domestic connection in DFW? I'm travelling from London Heathrow as a British Citizen. Thank you!

     

    That's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

  • 55 minute connection at DFW travelling from Vegas to Madrid (Spain)

    Is 55 minutes enough to make the connection?

     

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

     

  • Is 60 minutes layover enough for domestic to international?

    American Airlines changed the departure time for one of my flights CLE-DFW-NRT (Tokyo). I now only have 60 minutes layover in DFW. Will I have enough time to make it from domestic gates to international gates?

     

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

     

  • Clearing customs to catch a connecting flight

    Hello, I am traveling from Narita to Dallas and will arrive at 8:25am. Will I have enough time to get through customs and recheck my bags to catch a flight from Dallas to Tampa at 12:15pm? Its almost a 4 hour layover but I've never traveled through the Dallas airport.

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time

    I'm looking at a flight from Tampa to DFW then transferring to Incheon, Korea. Is 1 hour 30 minutes enough to make the terminal change?

     

    Yes, if both tickets are on the same reservation that is enough time. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security.

    Hello, my flight from NRT will arrive at DFW at 0825 (american airline) and fly to CLE at 1100 (american airline). will transit time of 2 hours and 35 be enough time? what do i need to do for the transiting time? thanks

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will arrive in Terminal D, 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 take the skylink train to your departure gate, which will likely be in a different terminal.

    I am flying in from CLT to DFW & then connects to HKTG with 60 mins transit time. Will there be enough time to clear US immigration, then customs, etc? I took 2hrs to clear everything from HKTG-DFW-MEX just 2 days ago. Thanks!

     

    There is no US Immigration and Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in DFW on your way to Hong Kong is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security. You have enough time.

     

    Thank you! Do I still need to go through screening for my hand-carry luggage? Or simply just proceed straight to departure gate without any queuing?

     

    Appreciate your final advice & confirmation. Thanks!

     

    You just go to your departure gate. No additional security required.

     

  • Miami - DFW - Minneapolis (44 minutes enough?)

    Hello, I am looking to book a flight from Miami to Minneapolis through DFW. I will have 44 minutes between flights. Would that be enough? Would I need to run? Both flights are American Airlines flights and the connection is around noon. Thanks, AK

     

    It's possible but doesn't leave much time to spare if the flight from Miami is delayed. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security.

    I have a flight that lands at 8:00 am in Terminal C from St. Louis. I then have a connecting flight at 8:50 in Terminal D that departs at 8:50. Will this be enough time? I did buy the tickets together on travelocity.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if your flight from St. Louis is on-time. The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security.

    I'm a UK citizen flying from London to Dallas and then taking connecting flight to Orlando. We have two and half hours to make the connection. Is this sufficient? Also what is the easiest and quickest way to get from terminal d to terminal c? Thanks

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, go through security, and then take the Skylink train to your departure terminal if it is in A or C.
