Topic Discussion

I'm traveling from London Heathrow to Dallas then onto Kansas. Both flight with American Airlines. Will I need to go through security and collect luggage during the connection at Dallas.
Yes, in DFW you will 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.
Is a 70 minute layover too short? Will I need to go through international security again?
Yes, that is enough time. There is no such thing as "International security". 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.
Hi, I am traveling LHR - DFW - BOG with AA (the first flight operated by Bristish Airways). I have 2h 55 min of connecting time. Is that enough? Can you tell directions? Also, I am traveling with my Italian passport. Do I need transit visa? Thanks!
Yes, that is enough time. You do not need a transit visa, but you need to complete ESTA. In DFW you will 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. You should have enough time.
Hi im traveling from Bogota to Boston in AA. But first i have a layover in Dallas for 2 hours is that enough time? Do i have to Go through customs?
Yes, in DFW you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, go through security and to your departure gate on the Skylink train.
Hi, I am landing in Dallas at 1:30pm on a Saturday on Qantas, and I'm looking to fly straight to Cancun on a 4:30pm flight on Amercian Aairlines. The flights are booked separately. Could you please advise if 3 hours will be sufficient to go through customs and check in for the next flight?
Thanks!
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Im so worried about the short connecting time in DFW. Im flying from MCO to DFW and to HKG, is 42 mintes enough for me to get off the plane, take the skylink, and walk to Terminal D before they close the bridge? Thanks!
Yes, it is enough time if the flight from Orlando is on-time, but it leaves no time to spare.
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.
