Hi there! I'm connecting next week from SLC thru DFW on the way to Madrid, and I have an hour and five minutes to get to the international terminal. Is this enough time, or will I be running through the airport? Thanks!
Yes, that is enough time. You just have to take the Skylink train from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Great, thank you!
I'm coming from Vancouver back to NY through DFW. Is 1 hr 15min enough time to get through customs and catch my connections?

My family will be coming in from Jamaica and clearing customs in DFW. I will be using mobile passport to get through customs. Will we have enough time make our connecting flight OMA? We are flying American Airlines entire way and have an hour and 35 minute layover

I am flying Fort Myers to DFW and have 40 minutes in DFW to make a connecting flight to Vancouver, Canada (YVR). Is this enough time, do I need to go through any additional security or do I simply just go from arrival gate to my departure gate?

I am flying into DFW on AA from Rome (Flt. #239) and connecting to an AA flight (Flt. #1216) to Sacramento. Will I remain in the same terminal? If not what terminal will I arrive and what terminal will I depart for Sacramento?
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, go through security and to your departure gate which could be in A, C, or D. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security.
I'll be arriving from madrid on AAFlight with 2hr 10 min layover. Is that enough time for customs, immigration and to find my seattle flight.
I assume I have to change terminals? This is during the busy December holiday season.
Yes, that is enough time. Also note however that the flight schedule will probably change before December.
We arrive on American Airlines from Toronto and we connect on American airlines to Honolulu. We do not have any checked luggage. Will we be departing from the same terminal? We have 1 hr and 40 min to connect and have one passenger who will have to walk slowly with leg issues.

AA has rescheduled our flights so that we now only have 43 minutes to get from our AA SEA - DFW flight to our DFW-BTR flight (American Eagle). The 4 of us are all able-bodied adults, but we have seats on row 29 of the flight from SEA. If everything is on schedule, do we have a chance of making our connection from DFW-BTR? Our luggage will be checked through to BTR.
Yes, you have a chance, but everything has to go perfectly. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security in DFW.
Thank you
