Why do I have to claim baggage when travelling from YVR (Vancouver) to BZE (Belize City) transiting DFW but it is unnecessary to do so on my way back? Both times my baggage tag has my final destination on it.
Hello. I am flying from Anchorage to Dallas and from Dallas to Buenos Aires, both American Airlines flights. I have 12 hours between both flights. I have 2 questions: 1. Do I have to get my luggage at Dallas and recheck it to Buenos Aires. 2. Is it possible to keep 1 of the pieces (only 1 of thr 2 I am checking) so I can buy some things in Dallas and then check it later at the AA counter? Thank you very much
If your connection is during the day (I think it is) you don't have to do anything with your bags in DFW on the way to Buenos Aires.
Thank you Zap. I arrived at 6am and departed at 7pm and did not have to take my luggage, it continued alone. AA also did not let me tag one of the pieces to be retired at DFW. I had to tag them all to final destination. Thank Yoi

I have a 1h 48m window in which to make the Finnair/AA flight to LHR. I will have 1 checked in suitcase. Will I have enough time to make my connection?
Thanks very much
Yes, that should be just enough time. You will go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security but won't have to claim your bags, both flights are in Terminal D.
I'm arriving from the uk and have to transit through DFW to connect a flight to Corpus Christi. Do I have to reclaim my luggage and recheck it in ? Thanks Robert
Yes, you 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 take the Skylink train to your departure gate in Terminal B.
Flying through DFW on Saturday, I have an hour and 10 minutes to get from Terminal A to Terminal B (both flights through American Airlines). I won't have a checked bag but I will have a carry on. Is that enough time? And any tips on the best way to get from A to B quickly?
I have two reservations, first one coming from OKC to DFW on Spirit and then from DFW to LGA on American. Will I have to recheck my bag and will I have enough time to make my flight.
Yes, you will have to claim your bags, take the shuttle bus to your departure terminal, re-check your bag with American and go through security. I don't know how much time you have so I don't know if you have enough time.
Also, Spirit doesn't fly to Oklahoma City so I suspect you listed your airlines in reverse order.
My grandchildren are flying to Dfw they now are scheduled to land at terminal c gate c7 at 11:11 am but have to go to terminalB gate 33 their flight leaves at 12:15pm is if far to terminal c gate 33 will they have time to get there before next flight leaves? Thank you. Worried grandma
That is enough time. All they have to do is take the Skylink train between gates which should take less than 15 minutes.
