  • Is time enough and visa waiver

    Hi, I am traveling LHR - DFW - BOG with AA (the first flight operated by Bristish Airways). I have 2h 55 min of connecting time. Is that enough? Can you tell directions? Also, I am traveling with my Italian passport. Do I need transit visa? Thanks!

     

    Yes, that is enough time. You do not need a transit visa, but you need to complete ESTA. 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 to your departure gate. You should have enough time.

    Hi, I am landing in Dallas at 1:30pm on a Saturday on Qantas, and I'm looking to fly straight to Cancun on a 4:30pm flight on Amercian Aairlines. The flights are booked separately. Could you please advise if 3 hours will be sufficient to go through customs and check in for the next flight? Thanks!

     

    That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Im so worried about the short connecting time in DFW. Im flying from MCO to DFW and to HKG, is 42 mintes enough for me to get off the plane, take the skylink, and walk to Terminal D before they close the bridge? Thanks!

     

    Yes, it is enough time if the flight from Orlando is on-time, but it leaves no time to spare.

    Hi there, I will be transiting through Dallas on my way to Ecuador from Toronto in December. The layover is 8 hour long, can I exit the airport and come back 2-3 hours before my flight to Ecuador? Thanks ! Marie

     

    Yes, you can exit the airport. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. You will just have to go through security again when you return to the airport.

    I'm flying with American Airlines from London Heathrow to Dallas then on to Sacramento. Do I need to reclaim baggage and re check? Thanks

     

    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, then go through security and to your departure gate via the Skylink train.

     

    Thanks so much, sadly one of our bags has been left in London!! So we are really stuck.

    Travelling from Vancouver Canada, flight 1189 arriving 7:03 pm. Connecting to Sao Paulo at 9:30 pm. Is this enough time? Do I have to collect my luggage?

     

    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. You have plenty of time.

    Hi, I'm on a AA flight that arrives in terminal B from Greensboro at 9:55 AM, I need to get on an international AA flight that leaves terminal D at 10:35 AM. Is that enough time to switch? Do I need to go through security again at DFW? Thanks

     

    Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. No, you do not have to go through security again. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security.

     

    I am flying with AA from san antonio to DFW from where my next international connection to LHR is BA1531 I have only1.12 hrs at dfw. is it enough time for connection?

     

    Great Thanks!

    Hi! I'm traveling from Guatemala (GUA) to the DFW and then taking another airplane to Japan, we arrive at the terminal E and depart from the same terminal. Both flights with United airlines. Do we have enough time? I'm super worried about the time due to the security checks etc.

     

    Then you are connecting in Houston, not DFW.

    Hi there, I am coming into Dallas from London Heathrow, and have a connection to Austin. I have 1hr 45mins to do this, so 1. do I have to collect my bag and 2. is this enough time? 1 passenger who needs to know her timings down to a T! - Thank you! :)

     

    Yes, you have to 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 to your departure gate on the Skylink train. That is a very difficult connection, but not totally impossible. If you miss your connection AA flies lots of flights from DFW to Austin.

    I land in DFW from London on American Airlines at 3.35pm. My flight from DFW to Mexico City on American Airlines is at 4.55pm. Is an hour and 20 minutes enough time to make that connection?

     

    Realistically no, that's not enough time. You will have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and security in DFW. You don't have to claim your bags since it's international to international on AA, but that's still really difficult.

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Montreal. All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.

    I am traveling american airlines from BNA to CLL with a connection in Dallas. Is 40 minutes enough time for the connection (2pm - 240pm)?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. The Skylink train connects all terminals inside security.

     

  • 30 minute connection from DFW to Cozumel-enough time?
    Oct 14, 2016

    Our airline changed connection time on us. We now have 30 minutes when we arrive at DFW to get to a Cozumel connection. Is this enough time??

     

    If the first flight is domestic and both flights are on AA it's possible but it leaves no time to spare if the first flight is delayed.
