I'll be flying with American Airlines from DFW-Cozumel. My flight in DFW lands at 11:33AM and I have to catch my flight to Cozumel departs at 12:15PM. Will this be enough time? I'm assuming I will have to rush.
That is enough time if the first flight is domestic and on-time. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security.

I am looking at flights for leaving Sydney Australia and arriving at DFW to connect a flight to MSN. Wait is 1.45 hours. Will that be enough time to get through customs to connect flights?
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Arriving American Airlines 1584 from SJU at 1800 , next flight at 1900 also AA. Is 1 hour enough to catch the next flight? Will we have to go through immigration or leave secure area and go through TSA again? If we check our baggage at SJU will we have to collect it in Dallas? Thanks
Flights from Puerto Rico to the mainland US are treated like domestic flights. All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security.
I will be arriving at Dallas on the 17th from Tokyo at 8:25am and connect/depart to Philly at 10:30am. As an international, will I have enough time to go through all the processes and catch my connecting flight? If not, what should i do?

Thanks for the help!
You will arrive in the D concourse, go through customs and immigration, then go through TSA security once more at Concourse D. Once inside the secured area of the airport, take the train to your given departure concourse. This is enough time as long as your flight from Tokyo is on time.
I am flying from YVR to FLL via DFW, AA970 arrival time 1.45pm the connect to AA1402 departure time@ 2.25pm, only 40 min connection time,is it enough ?
Please advise
That's enough time if the first flight is on-time. 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 via the Skylink train.
I am flying from ORD to DFW then on to Cabo San Lucas on American. Will I have to go to International terminal?
Yes, your flight to Cabo will depart from Terminal D, however, all you have to do is go there on the Skylink train. You do not have to go through security again and there is no US Immigration or Customs when departing the US.
I will be arriving DFW (along with my wife & 1-year-old son) on Qatar airways at 15.35 and my connection flight to Vancouver is at 17.45. Is 2 hours sufficient to go through transit procedures? Do we have to claim the baggage?
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 to your departure gate on the Skylink train. You should have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I will be arriving in Dallas at 5:08 pm from Mexico City then I have a connecting flight to Omaha at 6:30pm. Will that be enough time to go through customs, immigration, and to recheck in my baggage?
I will be flying from London Heathrow to Cancun via Dallas. I arrive in Dallas at 16.40 my flight to Cancun is at 18:55 . Will I have enough time to make my connection? What is the process of transferring i.e. do i have to go through US customs/immigration?
I am traveling via AA from SJC to DFW arriving at 5:24PM and then have an onward flight to Toronto at 6:25 PM. Since both are AA flights, I'm guessing I won't have to claim baggage at DFW, however, are 60 minutes enough to go through Immigration and Passport Control?
There is no Immigration or passport control when leaving the US. Assuming you are coming from San Jose, California, all you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The skylink train connects all gates inside security. You have enough time.
Thank you for the clarification, seems like I was sweating for no reason :-)
