    I have a flight AA387 from GDL arriving at DFW at 16:50 at Terminal D. My connecting flight to LHR is at 18:40 from the same terminal. Is that enough time to connect? Do I need to go through the Customs and Immigration, reclaim the baggage and re-checkin? How long will this process take?

     

    You will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security but you do not have to claim your baggage since you are on an International to International connection through DFW. You should have enough time.

    Hi, sorry, I made a mistake to write the time. if I arrive at DFW 19:21 then need to catch up to PHL 20:15, (both are AA )only 54mins , do I have enought time? Thank you

     

    If the first flight is domestic that is enough time. The SkyLink train connects all terminals and gates inside security.

     

    thank you for your answer and have a good day

    We arrive on a Qantas flight from Sydney Australia at 1:35 pm, and intend to connect to AA flight to Miami at 3:10. Do we have sufficient time?

     

    That is barely enough time if everything goes smoothly and all tickets are purchased on the same reservation.

    Yes, it is enough time if the first plane is on-time and domestic or precleared. The SkyLink train connects all terminals and gates inside security.

    Hi, We are arriving at DFW at 1420 from LONDON. We have a connecting flight to MONROE at 1550 from DFW. Will there be enough time to complete immigration and customs at DFW and proceed to the MONROE fight? Thanks

     

    You have allowed yourself the bare minimum international to domestic connection time. It's possible, but everything has to go smoothly in order for you to make it.

     

    As both are same AA flights, do they allow me to board another flight or any assistance ?

     

    Yes, if you miss your connection you will be rebooked on the next available flight to Monroe. However, the next (and only) later flight is at 2015.

     

    Thanks ZAP for your replies.. Hope I will make it as scheduled..

    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.

    That is plenty of time to connect. There is no additional security check. Simply ride Skylink (inside security) from terminal B to D and check in with a Qatar gate agent for a document check

    We will be ariving in dallas at 11 am on air canada from toronto and leaving at 12:09 on american airlines to los cabo, purchased on one ticket.Will we have enough time for the connection? Will our checked bags be transfered to american or will we have to recheck? Thank you.

     

    If you purchased everything on the same reservation then your bags should be transferred to American. All you will have to do is take the SkyLink train from your arrival gate in Terminal E to your departure gate in Terminal D. You may have to stop at the AA gate to get your boarding passes if Air Canada is unable to issue them. You should have enough time if your flight from Toronto is on-time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto.

    Is customs set up in DFW so after customs (Paris to DFW) I can take my checked baggage and walk out instead of continuing on to Tampa? This is a 1 way flight so airline will only cancel portion I don't want. I'm not familiar with the customs set up at DFW. Tks

     

    Yes, you can walk right out of the airport in DFW if you want.
