  • FROM AUSTRALIA TO TORONTO

    Hi, I am flying from Australia to Dallas FW and connecting to Air Canada to Toronto. I have clear bagage as I have a separate tricket to Toronto. Would 4 hours be sufficient in Dallas FW for my wife and I to clear immigration, customs and check in to Air Canada? Thanks very much

     

    Yes, 4 hours should be plenty of time. However, you will have to get from Terminal D where you arrive to Terminal E where the Air Canada ticket counter is. The only connection between those two terminals outside security is a slow and infrequent shuttle bus, so be prepared for that.

     

    Thank you so much. Appreciate your reply very much

    Hi I am flying from BOS to SAT with a connection at DFW, there is only a 45 min layover is this enough time to get to my connection flight? I will have a toddler with me and only carry on. Thanks

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if your flight from Boston is on-time. All gates and terminals at DFW are connected inside security by the SkyLink train.

     

    Great Thank you! :)

    Hello! im flying to Miami with a connection here at DFW. From Calgary Canada, I have two options, a one hour 8 minute lay over OR 3 hour layover. I would prefer the shorter one but don't know if its enough time? Do I have to get my bag and re check it? thanks!!

     

    It's enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary. All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All terminals and gates at DFW are connected inside security by the SkyLink train.

     

    Thanks for your reply I appreciate it!! :)

    Hello, I am flying from Edmonton airport to Cancun via DFW airport with approx. 2 hr. layover in Dallas. Will my baggage automatically be transferred to my connecting flight. Also, will I need to go through security in Dallas before boarding the plane to Cancun?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Edmonton. 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.

     

  • is 45min connection time enough?

    On our homeward journey we fly from Orlando into Dallas we then have 45 minutes until our flight to London Heathrow leaves. Is this enough time to make the connection? Both flights are with AA. Traveling with hubby, teenager and 2 kids. I'm hoping we don't have to collect baggage and it is automatically transferred. Does anyone know what happens should we miss the flight? Thanks

     

    You do not have to do anything with your baggage in Dallas. You will arrive in Terminal A, C, or D and depart from Terminal D. The SkyLink train connects all terminals and gates inside security. You have enough time if your flight from Orlando is on-time. If you miss your flight you will be put on the next available flight to London.

    AA only got 1 hour 20 mins for layover. What's the minimum manageable transit time? Thanks

     

    The minimum time is 90 minutes. You will have to go through US Immigration and Customs and security and then go back to your departure gate. You will not have to claim your bags since you are on an international to international connection through DFW. It's possible if your Cancun flight is on-time or early and everything goes smoothly, but there's no room for error and if you miss your connection you'll be spending the night in Dallas.

     

    i just wonder why AA can sell such ticket :( I wonder if there's any people come across similar situation and able to manage this without accident. Thank you for your reply anyway.

    I AM NOT A RESIDENT HERE, AND I WAS WONDERING THAT I ONLY HAVE 40-50 MINS TO CONNECT WITH MY NEXT FLIGHT AT DWF, IS THAT ENOUGH TIME TO TRANSFER? (I HAVE A LUGGAGE TO CARRY) MY AIRLINE IS AA

     

    Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. The SkyLink train connects all gates inside security.

    Hi! Coming in from SLC, thru DFW then on to AMS and CPT - I only have a 49 min layover in DFW. Will that be enough time if I have checked bags? Do I have to do anything with those bags, or are they pushed on to my final destination? Thank you!!

     

    I would personally not be comfortable with that. You will likely need to change to International terminal D from one of the 4 others. You should not have deal with bags if you checked them to AMS in SLC. Any delay landing may cause a problem making the AMS flight

     

    It is possible if the flight from SLC is on-time or early. The Skylink train connects all terminals inside security.

    Hi I get off a Q7 (Qantas flight) at 1:35 PM from Sydney and have a connecting flight with AA (all on same ticket) at 3:25 PM for St Louis. I know I get off at Terminal D and am guess I have to go to A. I have a few questions: 1. Will I need to recheck the bags or just drop them off? 2. Will this be enough time to connect to my flight after clearing customs, picking up and dropping off bags and going through security and then getting to the gate? 3. I'm a Canadian citizen - will there be any different procedures because of this? Thanks!

     

    1. You should be able to drop off your bags right after customs if they were on the same reservation. If not ask the agent in Sydney to check it through using your AA confirmation. 2. Should be enough time. Make sure to go the right way on skylink. (it's bidirectional, make sure to take the route quickest to your gate) 3. You are eligible to use the Automated Passport Countries. Assuming you have a valid ESTA, Customs won't be too difficult :)

     

    I have the same question as Tofu123, except I am a US citizen with only 1 hr. 30 min. from landing (from Sydney) to take off (to StL)?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time jmt.

     

  • Calgary to Orlando via DFW

    Hey, I'm flying from Calgary to Orlando with a 57min layover in Dallas, my question is do I just go straight to the gate or do I have to clear immigration first as one is an international flight and the other is domestic, more for my ESTA getting given to me than anything

     

    You do not clear immigration in DFW because there is US preclearance in Calgary. Use skylink (inside security) to go from gate to gate if your flight to Orlando is in a different terminal than the one you arrived in.

     

  • 55 minute American Airlines connection

    Hello, I am flying AA from San Jose to Toronto, connecting in Dallas Fort Worth. My layover is 55 minutes. I understand that AA operates from several terminals - is 55 minutes enough time to make my connection, even if I have to change terminals?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. The SkyLink train connects all terminals and gates inside security.

     

    Also, this is assuming you are referring to San Jose, California, not San Jose, Costa Rica or San Jose del Cabo, Mexico.

     

    Yes, San Jose CA - thank you for clarifying. I appreciate your help!

    I'm flying in to DFW at 9:04pm 9/19 on American Airlines. My connecting flight is 9:50pm 9/19 with American Airlines operated by ENVOy Air-AS American Eagle. Is that enough time between flights to make my connection?

     

    That's barely enough time if the first flight is on-time. The SkyLink train connects all gates at DFW inside security.

     

  • British Air Terminal D thru Customs / transfer to Terminal B American

    My teenage daughter is flying in to DFW on British Airways on Saturday into Terminal D from London. She'll need to claim her bags and go through customs, then recheck her bags into terminal B for her American Eagle flight to Houston. Will she be able to immediately recheck her bags somewhere right after customs and just take the skylink over or will she need to totally leave security, go over to Terminal B, and then recheck her bags again before going back in through security again? We are getting all different information depending on who we speak to. Since she's flying alone and nervous I want to make sure she has correct information and knows what to do before she takes off. If anyone has experience with this please let me know. Thanks!

     

    If both tickets were purchased on the same reservation her bags will be tagged through to Houston in London and she can drop her bags off immediately after going through US Customs, then go through security, and take the SkyLink to Terminal B. If she purchased two separate tickets, she should bring along her AA confirmation to the airport in London to show the BA agent at check-in to get her bags checked through to Houston so that she can drop them right after customs. Even if she isn't able to do that, she doesn't have to haul them to Terminal B, she can check them at the American Airlines counter in Terminal D (and pay a checked bag fee, so she'll need a credit card or debit card), and then go through security and take the skylink to Terminal B.

     

    It was all one ticket. That's great news - thanks so much!
