    Hi, I'm scheduled to arrive with AA from Dulles at DFW Terminal C at 21:10 (QF4571) on July 3 and have to make the Qantas QF8 flight to Sydney, which is scheduled to depart Terminal D at 22:15 pm. I noticed that QF4571 was delayed tonight (July 2) and arrived at Terminal C at 21:30. If this delay occurs, can I still get from Terminal C to D and make the QF8 flight in time? My baggage will be checked through to Sydney.

     

    Yes, that would be still enough time to get to Terminal D. The TerminaLink train connects all gates inside security and all you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    Thanks! Do you mean the Skylink train? Or are they one and the same?

     

    Yes, I mean the Skylink, sorry.

    I have a 53min layover in DFW. Can I make it?

     

    If both flights are domestic that is enough time. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security.

    Hi, I'll be flying from Japan to DFW (Terminal D) to MEM (Terminal B) and my connection time for my next flight from DFW to MEM is 1 hour and 55 minutes. Do I have enough time? And is there sure I can get to another terminal by skyline?

     

    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, then go through security and take the skylink to Terminal B. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Flights are SEA to DFW to EZE and back (EZE to DFW to SEA). I am a US citizen with US passport, TSA precheck enrolled but not Global Entry. Outbound layover is Jul 27 4:24 pm to 6:45 pm which seems fine to me. 1) Can you confirm this is reasonable? 2) If I have a checked bag,do I need to recheck it on my way through DFW to EZE? Return is 5:12 am to 7:00 am on Aug 16, a Tuesday, which seems quite tight. 3) Am I likely to make that connection? Thank you for your time!

     

    Yes, the outbound is very reasonable - all you have to do in DFW on your way to Buenos Aires is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You don't have to do anything with your bags on your way to EZE. On the return you have just enough time. On the return 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. Precheck will help with the security part of that.

    If we arrive at 14:46 UA with checked baggage, when we pick up our luggage, do we have to exit security and then re-enter? We have a connecting, AA international flight at 17:20 for Paris.

     

    Yes, you have to exit security to claim and re-check your bags. You should have enough time. You will have to take a shuttle bus from Terminal E to Terminal D, which unfortunately doesn't run very frequently.

    I am an American citizen who will be traveling from China to the United States on a Tuesday. I arrive at DFW 5:05pm and my connecting domestic flight is 6:35pm. Is there any way I can realistically get through customs and immigration during this time? If not, do you have any suggestions for me? I would really prefer not to have to stay overnight.

     

    That's just enough time if everything goes perfectly. What is your final destination?

     

    My final destination is GSP. I am flying American Airlines to DFW and to GSP. Could you tell me what exactly I will have to do when I arrive at DFW? Thank you!

     

    In DFW 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 take the skylink train to your departure gate in Terminal B. If you miss your connection they may be willing to rebook you to Charlotte and you could get there that night, but there are no other opportunities after that 6:35 flight to get you to GSP that evening.

    No, if both tickets are on the same reservation then you don't have to go through security again in DFW. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security.

    Please explain the location to recheck your luggage after exiting customs when arriving from Madrid on AA and catching an American Eagle connection. Is this outside of the secured tram? If so, I'll assume you must recheck luggage at departures in the other terminal?? How would you then travel there? Please explain the process...

     

    It's literally right after you clear customs. You do NOT have to take your bags to another terminal. You then go through security in Terminal D and take the tram to your departure terminal (likely B).

    Hello! I am military so i did not get to chose my flight path or times. I'm flying into DFW from Fort Walton beach Florida and arrive at 9:18pm. My connecting flight is from DFW to London at 10:05 pm. Do I have to pick up my luggage, go through security, and recheck my luggage again? And if so do I have time? Thank you for the help! Oh also it's all through American Airlines.

     

    No, you don't have to do any of that. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in DFW. All gates are connected inside security by the Skylink train. You have enough time.

    Yes, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. 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.

    I am flying on a return flight from Cancun to dallas to Reno with a 3 hour layover and a terminal change. Do I need to clear customs and go through the security line again in Dallas, before I board my flight to Reno?

     

    Both flights are American Airlines

     

    Yes, in Dallas 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, likely on the Skylink train. You have enough time.

    we are leaving St. Louis at 8am and to arrive at dallas airport at 9:50am. We are leaving at 10:56 to go to Cabo San Lucas. I am not sure if they will be in the same terminal. Will this give us enough time.

     

    Yes, that is enough time. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security.
