  • Connection time in Dallas
    Aug 3, 2016

    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.

    My wife and I are returning from Jamacia (MBJ) in a few months with an arrival time of 5:05pm and departing for Fargo (FAR) at 6:40pm. I know we will need to go through customs and recheck our bags (1 bag each). With only only an 1.5 hour layover is enough time? All flights had this short of a layover without an overnight stay. Also which terminals will we be traveling between and how quick can you get between them?

     

    That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. You will arrive in Terminal D and depart from Terminal B. Once you go through security the ride on the Skylink takes less than 10 minutes.

    Hi, I am arriving on Qatar Airways to DFW (Terminal D) at 03:55pm and my onward travel is at 06:40pm on AA1393 on 21 Aug. Do I need to go through customs/immigration, claim baggage and recheck-in with American Airlines ? The booking does not specify the departure Terminal for AA1393. Do I need to take a skylink train ?

     

    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, go through security, and to your departure gate in Terminal A or C on the skylink train.

     

  • Flight from New Orleans to Dallas connecting to Qantas Syd Flight

    We are flying into Dallas from New Orleans and only have 50mins to connect to Qantas (SYD) flight. This was booked through Flightcentre Australia. How far apart are domestic terminals to INT?? Is this enough time?? Thanks

     

    You will arrive in Terminal A or C and depart from Terminal D. All you have to do is take the Skylink train from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if your flight from New Orleans is on-time.

    I'm making air arrangements through a vacation tour company. They are trying to sell me a flight from Albuquerque to DFW that connects to a flight to Heathrow. The problem is that the connection time is 42 minutes. I believe that's way too short given that I arrive in Terminal B and depart from Terminal D. Am I right?

     

    It's not impossible. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security. However, it leaves no time to spare if the flight from Albuquerque is delayed.

    Flying from Lima to Denver thru Dallas all on American. Could not get boarding pass for Dallas to Denver leg; have 1.5 hr in Dallas. I assume I have to claim bags and take thru customs, then recheck bags - is this correct; do I have enough time?

     

    That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.

     

  • BA1530 Terminal D transfer to IB4359 Terminal A at Dallas FW

    Arriving from London, transferring to internal flight to Portland with British passports. Is it possible to complete this in 1 and 1/2 hours and as all flights are operated by American Airlines, presumably bags will go right through? Thank you for your help.

     

    In Dallas 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. This is technically a legal connection but it depends on everything going absolutely perfectly for you to make it.

     

    thank you.... I think it's too risky for new travellers who would have difficulty navigating stand-bys if everything went wrong.

     

  • Terminal A to D

    Hello. We will at DFW at 6am, we should check out our laughage and go to Terminal D, for Emirates airline on 12pm. Do we have enough time to get there? Also it that to hard to get to terminal D from terminal A?

     

    If you have to collect bags in A and then take them to D to re-check then you need to take the shuttle bus which runs infrequently and takes a bit of time, but you have 6 hours, which is plenty of time.

     

    Can we walk or get skyline?

     

    The skylink train runs inside security (so you can't take it with bags you need to check) and the area between terminals outdoors at DFW is not very pedestrian friendly.

    arriving from sydney, after customs is it far to walk to terminal c (stretch the legs after long flight)

     

    Yes, it's not unreasonable to go through security and then walk to C instead of taking the Skylink train if you have plenty of time.

     

    thanks for the reply ! I have about 3 hrs layover, but I did wonder how far it is to terminal c ? 5 to 10 min walk ?

     

    More like 10-15

    I will be arriving at Dallas from Denver at 5:36 pm with AA and then my next flight is at 6:35 from Dallas to Champaign with AA again. This leaves me 59 minutes to connect. Is that enough time?

     

    Yes that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. The Skylink train connects all terminals inside security.

    Yes, that is possible. All you have to do is take the Skylink train from your arrival terminal to terminal D and board your flight.

     

  • Dubai - Mexico via DFW

    Hi there, We hold French passports and will be flying from Dubai to Mexico, transiting via Dallas airport DFW. We arrive in Dallas at 9:45am terminal D. Our flight to Mexico departs from terminal A at 10:45am. This leaves us with 1 hour layover. We have only carry-ons. Will it be enough time? Do we have to go through security even if we are not staying in the US? Many thanks in advance Best regards

     

    That is not enough time. You will go through US Immigration, Customs, and security. Also no flights to Mexico depart from Terminal A. American Eagle flights to Mexico depart from Terminal B, Spirit flights from Terminal E, and all other flights to Mexico depart from Terminal D.

    Hi I arrive at Dallas airport from Sydney with my 1 year old at 1.35 pm and have a connecting flight from Dallas to Tampa at 3pm. Need to check is this enough time to go through security and re check in bags. I have one check in bag. Also at security is there a cart I could use to lug my bag and other things? Thanks

     

    You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, are-check your bags and go through security. There are carts in the international baggage claim. This is not reasonably enough time to make this connection unless the flight from Sydney arrives significantly early.

    Arriving at 616 gate C16. Need to get to gate A29 for 700 departure with boarding starting at 0620. Do I have enough time

     

    It's not impossible but it obviously leaves no time to spare. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security.
