    Arriving at dallas fw with 23 minutes to board BA flight to Heathrow. Is this enough time


    It will be very difficult if you do not arrive in Terminal D.


  • 45 min. layover on AA from Aspen departing Bloomington
    Dec 7, 2014
    Is 45 min enough time between a flight arriving from Aspen (ASE) and departing Bloomington, IL (BMI) in June


    I at least need to know if the AA flights from Aspen and to Bloomington will be in the same terminal. Thanks!


    Both flights should be in Terminal B, but even if they're not the Skylink train connects all terminals inside security and you have enough time even if you have to change terminals.

    I will fly from CAE to DFW on AA Flight 2509 and then take AA Flight 0127 to PVG. 2509 will arrive at DFW at 9:45 am ad 0127 will take off at 10:45 am. I have nevered transferred at Dallas before. My major concern is whether the layover is long enough? Will I be able to catch Flight 0127?Will my luggage be able to follow up? thank you


    1 hr should be enough time. You will arrive in terminal B and depart from Terminal D. The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security.


    Thank you, ZAP. I just received an email telling me the 0127 flight will leave at 10:30, which shortens my layover to 45 mins. So my question is will 45 mins be enough? Is 45 mins enough for the luggage to be transferred from an domestic plane to an international one? Thanks again, I appreciate your help.


    Yes, it's still enough time but it obviously doesn't leave much to spare.

    Yes that should be enough time. The skylink train connects all terminals inside security.


    Thanks for the info Zap


  • Domestic to international flight connection time
    Dec 3, 2014
    I want to book a domestic flight connecting to an international flight in Dallas. I do not know the terminals of each. There is only 1 hr 12 mins between arrival and departure. Is that enough time, It is in the morning presumably before delays . Will I have to go through security again because it is an international flight? As this seems to be a once daily flight to PVG, I would be stuck if I missed the connection.


    No, you won't have to go through security. The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security. Your PVG flight will depart from Terminal D.


  • Like everyone else, will I make it?!
    Dec 3, 2014
    I'm flying into Dallas tomorrow from Los Angeles, landing at 6pm in terminal A.. My connection flight to ft. Lauderdale leaves at 645, what's the best route to getting to terminal C from terminal A? And is that enough time?


    The Skytrain connects all terminals inside security. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • Abu Dhabi - DFW
    Dec 3, 2014
    I have a flight from Abu Dhabi via DFW. Will I have enough time if my layover is one hour and 55 minutes? I am a greencard holder.


    Yes, Abu Dhabi has us immigration preclear acne, so you will have plenty of time.


    Thanks, what is immigration preclear acne?


    Thanks for the info. Would I need to transfer my bags in Dallas or will they get routed automatically to my final destination?


    Sorry, I meant Immigration preclearance. It means you will go through US Immigration and Customs in Abu Dhabi. If you purchased your tickets together you will not have to do anything with your bags in DFW.


  • Enough time?
    Dec 2, 2014
    I'm flying in on American Airlines and have a connection to SJD Los Cabos. The layover is one hour and 25 minutes. Is that enough time?


    Assuming your first flight is domestic, that is plenty of time. You will take the Skylink train, which runs inside security, from your arrival terminal to terminal D where your flight to Cabo will depart.

    I am flying from London Heathrow to Fort Meyers Florida with a connection of about 6hrs in Dallas. I am hoping to see a friend in that time that lives there. Will I need to collect luggage or will it go straight through with my connecting flight (BA and then AA)? How long before my connecting flight will I need to give to check back in?


    You will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk. You will then be outside security (and already checked in for your flight to Ft. Myers. Your friend can meet you at the exit of customs in Terminal D. You should head back to security about an hour before your flight. You can go through security in Terminal D and then take the SkyLink train to your departure terminal if it is not D.


  • changing airlines in terminal

    I am flying in on Delta and flying our on American. 2 differnt tickets. Do I need to go out and back through security or can i just go to the American gate and get a boarding pass?


    more info for above... DFW airport ... traveling within the US...no checked bags...


    Better yet, print out your boarding passes on the internet at home or use the AA and Delta smartphone apps for mobile boarding passes. The Skylink train will connect your arrival and departure terminals inside security.


  • UK international connection throug to Aspen - Is 1hr 35mins enough?
    Dec 3, 2014
    Hi I am flying into DFW from LHR on Boxing day arriving at 2.45pm. I guess I will need to go through boarder control before my connecting flight to Aspen at 4.20 pm. Is this enough time? I will need to travel from Terminal D to B. On the reverse trip, will I go through customs at Aspen? Thank you for any help you can give. KMC


    That seems really short for you to get through immigration and then on to your next gate. You might be able to make it, but I've seem people spend an hour + in immigration. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news! Check with your airline or travel agent to confirm. Aspen won't have customs, so on the reverse trip you will go through customs when you get back to the UK.


    You have enough time in DFW. On the reverse trip you will go through UK Immigration in LOndon, there is no US Passport control when leaving the US.


    I flew into DFW from LHR in August. Queue for customs split into US and non-US. Missed my flight as I queued for at lest an hour. This was after an hour queue in immigration.There should be another queue for tigt connections.


  • DFW to CUN
    Nov 30, 2014
    Please help. I plan a vacation for my family of 4 (2 adults, 12 yrs and 16 yrs old) in Jun of 2015 and my connection btw DFW to CUN is only 47 mins. Do we have enough time to transfer (6:13am-7:00am)? Thank you very much for all your help.


    Your 'transfer' at DFW depends on whether you arrived at DFW from a domestic or an international flight. Therefore, I suggest that you open www.ifly.com/dfw, click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS & scroll down to the detailed text for procedures & transfers, etc. As you arrive a morning rush hour, 47 minutes would be too short if you are an international arrival. Also make sure that your passports for all 4 members are current.


  • Help me, please! :)

    Hello! :) I'm arriving at Dallas airport on Dec. 27 from MIAMI on american airlines (1437) and boarding to go to SAVANNAH in 2 hours and 25 minutes on ENVOY AIR AS AMERICAN EAGLE(3351) and I'll have to do the check in again (with american eagle) and dispatch my bags too. So, Which terminal will I disembark? Which terminal will I embark to go to Savannah? And about the check in, where can I do it? Are there places in the terminal or near to there? Thank you very very much!


    You do not have to check in. All you have to do is walk from your arival gate to your departure gate. All terminals are connected inside security by the Skylink train. You won't know your terminals until the day of your flight. You have plenty of time.

    Hi! I arrive at Dallas from Buenos Aires at 7.40am and my connection to San Francisco leaves at 8.40am on a Friday. I'm travelling with American Airlines. Will that be enough time?


    No, that's totally not enough time! You need to change your reservation.


  • Do I need to collect my baggage?
    Nov 29, 2014
    Hi, I am arriving at Dallas airport on Dec. 3 from South Korea on American Airlines (AA280) and boarding AA280 to go to Miami in 3 hours. Do I need to go through immigration and collect my baggage even though I am going to take off and board the same airplane again? Please let me know. Thank you so much.


    This is an additional question to the above. What terminal do I arrive in? Do I need to go to the same gate to go to Miami? Thank you!


    You will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate (which may not be in Terminal D, even though both flights have the same flight number).


    Also, you have plenty of time.


    Thank you so much for your reply.
