  • Miami to Sydney with connevting flight
    Mar 10, 2016
    Im travelling from Miami to Sydney with a conneting flight at DFW. Arriving at DFW at 2100 and departing at 2225. Will that be sufficient time so I dont miss the next flight?


    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 terminals inside security.


  • Connection time
    Mar 11, 2016
    I am connecting in dallas to and from an international flight with an hour layover each time. Is this enough time to go through customs and catch my connecting flight as they are both late afternoon?


    Where are you flying from and to? What airlines are you flying? I can't answer your question without that info.


    I'm flying from MAF to DME and back with American Airlines and British Airways.


    On the way to Moscow that is enough time. On the way back, if your arrival into DFW is the first point you land at in the United States, no that is not enough time.


    im sorry, I mis read my returning itinerary; I'll have just over 2 hours at DFW. Would that allow me enough time?


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • Fast track through customs/security
    Mar 7, 2016
    We will be flying back from Puerto Villarta transferring to ORD. I've heard about very long waits through customs/bag claim/security etc. I think our layover is less than 2 hours. Is there a fast track process (like PRE-TSA options I can purchase to get through the airline process quicker?


    No, immigration is not controlled by the airlines. There is nothing you can purchase to speed it up from the airlines. However, you can apply for Global Entry. You should have enough time.


  • Connection advice needed!
    Mar 6, 2016
    Arriving DFW at 7:20 am on an international flight, connecting to a domestic flight on a different airline / different reservation departing at 10:20 am. After collecting luggage, clearing customs, etc., will I have to leave security and go through the ticketing process all over again for the second airline for the domestic flight? If so, is a three-hour layover doable? Thanks!


    Yes, you will likely have to take a shuttle bus to another Terminal (I can tell you the terminal if you tell me the airline), then check your bags at their check in desk, get your boarding passes, and go through security. 3 hours should be possible, especially early in the morning.


    Connecting to an American Airlines flight. Thank you!


    In that case you should be able to re-check your bags in the terminal you arrive in (Terminal D).


  • Enough Time
    Mar 2, 2016
    Hi, I have a flight schedule from Argentina to Chicago with connection in DFW. ETA would be 5:28AM and departure time 7:00AM, would be enough time?


    At that early hour you should have enough time. If you do miss your connection there are hourly flights from DFW to Chicago that you can be rebooked on.


    Many thanks for your advise. Is an AA connection so hopefully it won't be that complex.


  • Sufficient Layover
    Mar 2, 2016
    Travelling to Australia with a connection in DFW on AA- short connection of 1:17 - second flight (flight out of DFW) is operated by Qantas so I know we are definitely changing planes would that be a sufficient layover to get us from arrival to dept gates?


    Yes, that should be enough time if the first flight is on-time. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security.


  • Terminal 0
    Mar 4, 2016
    I have a flight leaving from terminal 0.... it isn't on any maps. Help.


    There is no Terminal 0. Sometimes if your flight is a domestic flight on American it says that because they use multiple terminals (A, C, and D for mainline and B for American Eagle).


    Thank you ZAP. I have flown numerous times via Dallas but always had a connecting flight within a few hours. Connections from my Qantas flights have always been through D (to Toronto) or B (to US destinations). This time I am having a 4 day stopover. It is an American Eagle flight and assume check in and departure will be in Terminal B. I am sure I will find the right place on the day. I thought maybe there had been a new building since I was there last... Thanks again.


  • CUN - DFW - SYD Connection
    Mar 1, 2016
    I have a flight booked with Qantas / AA codeshare on the one ticket from CUN - DFW - SYD. The flight times have been changed so that arrival at DFW is 20:40 (Sat) and departure 22:15 (Sat) for a transit time of 1h 35min. Will I have to collect baggage and clear customs before checking in to the second leg, and will this be enough time?


    You will go through US Immigration, clear customs, and go through security. You shouldn't have to claim your baggage since you are on an International to International connection, but confirm that with AA employees in Dallas.


    Thanks for your help ZAP. Yes it appears you are correct and QF / AA connections are ITI, so we will be able to use the Carry E-Z passport control line, so hopefully 1h 35min will be sufficient.


  • Customs & terminal change
    Mar 1, 2016
    Never been to DFW before and return flight indicates a terminal change. We will be leaving PLS at 4:25 arrive DFW at 8:00 and depart for DEN at 10:00. Is this sufficient times at this time of day for customs and terminal change with checked bags?


    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 if it is in Terminal A or C.


  • Hyatt to Terminal E
    Mar 1, 2016
    Can I Stay at the Hyatt Regency in DFW Terminal C and take skylink to Terminal E in the morning?


    Yes, you can.


    Thank you ZAP!


    I guess I should note that you'll have to print off your boarding pass at the hotel's business center or use a mobile boarding pass to go through security in Terminal C for an airline in Terminal E.


  • international connection with two kids and much lugguage
    Feb 29, 2016
    Hi, I have an international connection in August. I am coming from Korea in aa280 terminal D, and need to take aa 1335 to Pittsburgh in about 3 hours 30 minutes. I am guessing I have enough time, but I am traveling with two children, ages 4 and 7, with 3-4 large suitcases. As far as I understand, I need to check in my lugguages again in international trips; Can I send my suitcases before moving to the other terminal, or do you have any service (even paid) who can help us move ? In the busy airport, I really want to focus on keeping my kids safe (and other travelers by not hitting them with my cart).


    Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the re-check desk immediately after. Just have your kids follow you the whole time.

    Hi i have a connection flights Is one houre enought for lauover ? Both flights through AA and doemstic If i miss the flight becasue of previous flight that delay If AA going to put for the next flight??


    Yes, 1 hour is enough time for a domestic connection at DFW. Yes, if you miss your connection AA will rebook you on the next available flight to your destination.

    Not sure how much time we will need between landing at Dallas from Lubbock at 2.20pm and catching next flight at 3.35 pm to the uk. Will our baggage go straight through to our next flight? Will we have to go through immigration again as we have to go from terminal B to TD


    Yes, your baggage will go straight through. There is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US. You just have to take the skylink train from Terminal B to Terminal D.


  • 1:43 Layover
    Feb 28, 2016
    Hi, flying from Chile to Newark. Layover 1:43, is enaugh to do customs and terminal change?


    Yes, that should be enough time if things go smoothly.


  • Connection Time Worry
    Feb 27, 2016
    I'm landing in Terminal D with a BA flight from London at 3:55 and need to get to Corpus Christi. There's an AA flight leaving at 6:40 (idk what Terminal) that I want to book because it's the last departure that day. Is 1 hour and 45 mins enough time to go through customs and everything?


    Oh and this is on a Saturday


    Looks to me like you have 2 hours and 45 mins. If both tickets are on the same reservation that is enough time. Your flight to Corpus Christi will leave from Terminal B.
