Hi there,

I will be transiting through Dallas on my way to Ecuador from Toronto in December. The layover is 8 hour long, can I exit the airport and come back 2-3 hours before my flight to Ecuador?

Thanks !

Yes, you can exit the airport. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. You will just have to go through security again when you return to the airport.
I'm flying with American Airlines from London Heathrow to Dallas then on to Sacramento. Do I need to reclaim baggage and re check? Thanks
Yes, in DFW 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 gate via the Skylink train.
Thanks so much, sadly one of our bags has been left in London!! So we are really stuck.
Travelling from Vancouver Canada, flight 1189 arriving 7:03 pm. Connecting to Sao Paulo at 9:30 pm. Is this enough time? Do I have to collect my luggage?
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.
Hi, I'm on a AA flight that arrives in terminal B from Greensboro at 9:55 AM, I need to get on an international AA flight that leaves terminal D at 10:35 AM. Is that enough time to switch? Do I need to go through security again at DFW? Thanks
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. No, you do not have to go through security again. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security.
I am flying with AA from san antonio to DFW from where my next international connection to LHR is BA1531 I have only1.12 hrs at dfw. is it enough time for connection?
Great Thanks!
I have a flight from Vancouver (YVR) to DFW which arrives at 1:12pm Friday. I have 2hr 17 min to have connection to Managua (MGA) at 3:29pm. Do I have enough time? Thank you!
Yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in DFW on your way to Managua is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hi!
I'm traveling from Guatemala (GUA) to the DFW and then taking another airplane to Japan, we arrive at the terminal E and depart from the same terminal. Both flights with United airlines. Do we have enough time? I'm super worried about the time due to the security checks etc.
Then you are connecting in Houston, not DFW.
Hi there,

I am coming into Dallas from London Heathrow, and have a connection to Austin. I have 1hr 45mins to do this, so 1. do I have to collect my bag and 2. is this enough time?

1 passenger who needs to know her timings down to a T! - Thank you! :)
Yes, you 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 gate on the Skylink train. That is a very difficult connection, but not totally impossible. If you miss your connection AA flies lots of flights from DFW to Austin.
I land in DFW from London on American Airlines at 3.35pm. My flight from DFW to Mexico City on American Airlines is at 4.55pm. Is an hour and 20 minutes enough time to make that connection?
Realistically no, that's not enough time. You will have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and security in DFW. You don't have to claim your bags since it's international to international on AA, but that's still really difficult.
Hi
I am traveling on american airlines from Montreal (canada) to Los Angeles with a stop at DFW. Is 1:15 enough time to make the connection ?
Also, can you tell me if we will have to pick up the luggage and check them again at DFW ?
Thank you
You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Montreal. All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
I am traveling american airlines from BNA to CLL with a connection in Dallas. Is 40 minutes enough time for the connection (2pm - 240pm)?
Yes, that is enough time. The Skylink train connects all terminals inside security.
