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.
If I am flying from Tokyo to DFW then Miami with Puerto Rico being my final destination will I have to go through security and recheck my bags?
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, go through security and to your departure gate on the Skylink train.
9/10/16 flying in from Columbus,Oh to DWF arrival time says 9:39am Depart time for next plane is 10:50am headed to Honolulu, HI. Can you tell me what terminals we are coming in and going out of and if that is enough time in between.
That is plenty of time. You will both arrive an depart from Terminal A, C, or D. You won't know the exact gate until the day of your flight. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security. You have enough time.
Hi, We are looking at flying via Dallas from London to Las vegas. The flight get in to Terminal D at Dallas and takes off again at Terminal 0. We have 2hr change over time. Would this be enough time and is it easy to change terminals? Where would we clear customs/security-here or in LV? If we have booked it as one through ticket would our baggage go straight through to LV? Thanks for help.
There is no Terminal 0. You will depart from Terminal A or C. 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. You should have enough time.
I've got a one hour twenty minute connection with American Airlines arriving from Bogota and flying onto LAX. Is that enough time to make the connection?
No, that's not very reasonable. AA has lots of flights from DFW to LAX that you can be rebooked on.
I am coming from San Diego airport on 10/10/2016 to Dallas airport (arrival time 9.05pm) and my connecting flight to London is at 10.05pm (only 1 hour for the connection). I hold a French passport. I need to know if i will have to go through security and custom control or not and if this is enough time for the transit.
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all terminals inside security.
