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 :-)
I will be flying from Newark to Hong Kong via Dallas in October. I arrive Dallas at 11:22am, my flight to Hong Kong is at 12:50pm (approx 1hr30min). Will I have enough time to make my connection? What is the process for a domestic to international connection? Thanks!
All you have to do is take the Skylink train from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Terminal D. you have enough time.
I will be flying from Hong Kong to Newark via Dallas in September. I arrive Dallas at 4:15pm, and my flight to Newark is at 6:26pm (approx 2hr15min). Will I make my transfer? What is the process of international to domestic transfers?
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, and go through security and take the Skylink train to your departure gate.
If we depart from San Antonio Airport and go thru DFW to get to Cancun will we have to get and recheck our bags and go back thru security at DFW or will we just be able to go straight to the connecting flight?
No, you just go directly to your departure gate on the Skylink train.
I arrive in Dallas at 5:05 and depart to Pittsburgh at 6:30. Is this enough time to clear customs and make the flight?
That's below the minimum recommended international to domestic connection time at DFW. It's possible, but everything has to go perfectly.
travelling on sep 30 frm Santiago Chile to Toronto via Dallas LATAM OPERATED BY AMERICAN.- ETA Dallas 05:28 and departure at 07:10 ( APP 90 MINUTES ) .- Is it enough time .- How can I know terminal of arrival and departure .- Do I need to approach counter on arrival to DFW ? Tks for info
You will arrive in Terminal D and depart from Terminal A, C, or D. You will arrive, go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security. You don't have to claim your bags since you are on an an International to International connection all on AA. After clearing security you will take the Skylink train to your departure gate.
tks you mention US immigration Customs and Security .- when and how do I get departure gate to Toronto .- Do I have to go to AA counter at DFW to check this ?
You will be checked in for both flights in Santiago. In Dallas you will be directed to US Immigration and customs and once you clear customs you just follow signs to your departure gate. If your flight to Toronto does not depart from Terminal D you will go through security in D and then take the Skylink train to your departure gate.
tks for info .- Will 90 minutes be enough for Customs clearence and make it to connecting flight Toronto ?
sorry I insist but my last inquire was not answered .- Will 90 minutes be enough from arrival to departure customs immigration included ?
My son is traveling from Lima to Atlanta with stop at Dallas, we know he needs to go thru customs but he want to know if he needs to collect his bags in Dallas or it will need to be in Atlanta.
In DFW he will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim his bags, go through US Customs, re-check his bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and take the skylink train to his departure gate.
We are flying in to DFW on AA from Dayton to B43 at 8:44pm and have a connecting flight at 9:25pm at C33. Is there a best route from B43 to C33? Do you think we will have enough time? Thanks!
Take the skylink train. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
We are flying from London to Cancun over Dallas with British Airways operated by AA. Our arrival scheduled at 17:00 and the connection AA to Cancun leave Dallas at 19:00. Is the two hours gap enough for us to catch the fly?

Thanks
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Even if we need to claim our luggages and go through the check in processes again? As I am not sure when AA is the operator and the flight-number is BA the luggages will be also directed to the connected fly. I spoke with AA and BA but all I have got were different answers.

Thanks
Since you are on an AA to AA international to international connection over DFW you should not have to claim your bags and will be checked into both flights in London.
