I will be re-entering US at DFW...flying AA Flight 37...connecting to British Air 1513 to Fresno, CA. I have a 2 hr 15 min layover. Do I have time to pick up checked baggage and clear customs or should I just plan on carry-on?
Both flights will be AA. Yes, 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 terminal and gate. That should be enough time.
I'm a US Citizen re-entering the country from Australia. I'm pretty sure I enter through terminal D but I'm not sure which terminal I depart at. I have a layover time of exactly 1hr. 30 minutes to go from Dallas to Tampa. Will that me enough time for me to get through immigration and customs or should I request a later flight?
You will depart from Terminal A or C. That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I have a connection flight at DFW travelling from Tampa to London. I only have 55 minutes between connections, will this be long enough?
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 gates inside security.
Is this the same for SLC to Heathrow via DFW? I have a three hour layover between flights, with American Airlines travelling home to London. I'm worried I'll have to recheck bags etc but no other site has been useful.
Hi, I am traveling from India on Qatar Airways(HYD-DOH-DFW-BHM) and have a Layover of 1hour 40 mins at DFW to the connecting flight which is operated by AA. Will the time be sufficient to go through customs and also do I need to re-check my bags? Thanks
That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. 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, go through security and take the Skylink train to your departure gate.
