  • London To Costa Rica
    Oct 11, 2012

    Hi. I'm traveling from London to Costa Rica on American Airlines, changing planes in Dallas. 1. Will my checked in bags go straight through? 2. We have 2 hours to transfer - that will be enough time won't it? Thank you.

     

    On arrival at DFW your bags will automatically be transferred to your connecting AA flight. Note that AA uses International Terminal D and Domestic Terminals A, B, C & E (American Eagle uses TB & TD). You arrive at TD and need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and re-check-in your bag/s where indicated. Look at overhead screens (and also your ticket) to find your connecting terminal or corresponding gate. Then take the free Skylink train, which runs inside the post-security area of each of the five terminals, starting at the International Terminal D at gates D2, D20, D25 & D34, and connecting to the other terminals by two Skylink stations each (close to the left and right end). It runs every 2 mins and takes about 5 minutes of transfer time on average. Terminals A, B, C & E Skylink stations are between gates A13-16 & A29-34, B9-12 & B28-31, C8-12 & C27-32, and E8-11 & E31-32 . You have enough time.

     

  • Transferring from terminal B to E

    I am taking flight AA3209 from LAW which lands in TB at 425pm and then switching over the US1108 to CLT which departs at 530pm. My concern is that these 2 flights were booked separately, so will I get both boarding passes from LAW and will my checked-in bags be transferred to the USAirways flight automatically? If I have to collect my bags, then transfer over, would I have enough time?

     

    Your US connecting flight will be out of TE (which is not connected by walkway to the other domestic terminals). On arrival at TB you need to claim your bags (as AA and US belong to a different Alliance, and you have separate bookings) and take them to TE, where you need to re-check-in your bag with US Airlines before proceeding to your connecting gate. The Skylink train connects all gate areas inside the secured area. However, you will be in the unsecured area of TB when claiming your bags. Go to the information counter there to find out if you can go with your bag through security check to catch the Skylink stations located between gates A13-16 & A29-34, B9-12 & B28-31, C8-12 & C27-32, and E8-11 & E31-32 . An hour seems to be very tight for all this.

    We are flying to Terminal A, with flight AA1589 next monday from New York to Dallas to catch the next AA plane 657 that leaves for Mexico from Terminal D. Do we have to go throw customs, and or pick up our bags or can we just run to the next terminal. We have very little time, only 45 minutes from Terminal A to terminal D. Please answer, dont want to miss our flight.

     

    You have enough time! Only international arrivals, need to go through customs clearance procedure. As you use AA for both legs of your journey, your bags will automatically be transferred to your connecting flight. On Arrival at TA, take the free Skylink train, which departs (post-security) between gate set A15-16 & A25-26 and will arrive at TD, making stops at D2, D25 & D34. The Skylink runs every 2 mins and takes about 5 mins to go around.

     

    Thank you very, very much. That answer made me feel so much better.

    We are landing at Terminal A from New York and have a connecting flight that leaves for Mexico at Terminal D. We only have 45 minutes, will we make it?

     

    45 mins should suffice, unless your incoming flight is real late. The free Skylink train runs inside the post-security area of each of the five terminals, starting at the International Terminal D at gates D2, D20, D25 & D34, and connecting to the other terminals by two Skylink stations each (close to the left and right end). It runs every 2 mins and takes about 5 minutes of transfer time on average. Terminals A's station is between gates A13-16 & A29-34,

    I noticed that skylink is only running in one direction between terminals. We need to get from terminal A29 to C17 on the 27th. Which direction does skylink go? A to C I'm hoping. We have 40 minutes between flights.

     

    At DFW, Terminals A & C are on the same side of the road lane; and the free Skylink train runs inside the post-security area of each of the five terminals, starting at the International Terminal D and connecting to the other terminals by two Skylink stations on either side - running every 2 mins and taking about 5 minutes of transfer time on average. Skylink stations are between gates A13-16 & A29-34, and C8-12 & C27-32. You have enough time.

    I will be arriving at DFW on an international flight from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. I know that I have to first clear immigration and customs upon deplaning. My question: I will be connecting with a flight operated by American Eagle. It's my understanding that both my arriving flight and my connecting flight will arrive at / depart from Terminal D. Is that correct? Will American transfer my checked bags to American Eagle after I clear Customs? (I am a US citizen living in Mexico).

     

    1. All international arrivals, including US citizens, (other than those cleared at some Canadian, Irish, and Caribbean airports with US Customs clearance) need to go through passport control, pick up bags, go through customs clearance, and if continuing flight, re-check-in bags before proceeding to connecting flight. 2. Your American Eagle flight will arrive at the International Terminal TD and depart from the domestic Terminal TB. After customs clearance, exit TD and walk to TB, where you need to go through security check and on to your gate (overhead screens will indicate gate number). Count on an hour transfer time.

    Traveling from American Eagle to Delta with an hour connection. Whats the best way?

     

    At DFW, you arrive at Terminal B and depart from Terminal E. The free Skylink train runs inside the post-security area of each of the five terminals, starting at the International Terminal D at gates D2, D20, D25 & D34, and connecting to the other terminals by two Skylink stations each (close to the left and right end). It runs every 2 mins and takes about 5 minutes of transfer time on average. Terminal B station is between gates B9-12 & B28-31; Terminal E station is between gates E8-11 & E31-32.

    I am connecting from one flight to another (arriving and departing from Term D) with 40 min in between. I expect to arrive at gate 34 and depart from gate 16. Is it better to walk/run or to take the Skytram? Thanks for the help.

     

    The Skylink stops are near gates D1, D20, D25 & D34. or you can walk. However, if you are an international arrival at DFW, you need to go through passport check, pick up bags, & go through customs clearance before proceeding to your connecting gate - you would not make the connection timewise.

    WHAT TERMINAL IS GATE T-3 LOCATED???

     

    There is no T3 - DFW Airport has Terminals TA through TD with corresponding gates. Open www.ifly.com/dfw, click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS, scroll down to text & you find details, including airlines serving those terminals.

    Providing my plane arrives at Term B on time at 17.00 have I enough time to get to Term D for flight leaving at 17.00

     

    On arrival at DFW you have nearly three hours available between flights and can leisurely roam the International Terminal to find food & drink or shops (interactive touch screens will give you locations). I suggest you exit Terminal B and take the free 'Terminal Link' (blue & green accessible vans) located outside the baggage claim of each terminal, which runs every 10 minutes - the nearest pick-up/drop-off areas at corresponding terminals are beween: A15-16 & A25-26; and D17 and D24. Then go through security check at Terminal D; look at overhead screen to check your departure flight and gate frequently.

    How do I got from Terminal E to Terminal D? I read that Terminal E doesn't connect to the other terminals?? Any help would be appreciated. My flight is today.

     

    At DFW, to get from one terminal to the other you have two options. (a) The free Skylink train runs inside the post-security area of each of the five terminals, starting at the International Terminal D at gates D2, D20, D25 & D34, and connecting to the other terminals by two Skylink stations each (close to the left and right end). It runs every 2 mins and takes about 5 minutes of transfer time on average. Terminals A, B, C & E Skylink stations are between gates A13-16 & A29-34, B9-12 & B28-31, C8-12 & C27-32, and E8-11 & E31-32 . (b) Alternatively, free 'Terminal Link' blue & green accessible vans transfer passengers outside the baggage claim of each terminal, running every 10 minutes, 5am-midnight, thereafter call 972-574-5465. Nearest pick-up/drop-off areas at corresponding terminals are beween: A15-16 & A25-26; B12-13 & B23; C12-15 & C24-27; D17 and D24; E9-13 & E18-21.

    I arrive at terminal D from British Airways, and have 1 hour and 45 minutes to transfer to an American Airlines flight in Terminal A. I know that I will have to go through passport control and customs, retrieve my bag, and re-check my bag. I am concerned that I may not have enough time in between flights. Does anybody know if this will be enough time, and also what the quickest way to get from Terminal D to A will be? In total, what will be my estimated time from terminal to terminal?? I really can not afford to miss my flight.

     

    First of all, find out if British Airways transfers your bags to your American Airline flight - if not, you would need to re-check-in your bag with American at their baggage counter in Terminal A. Either way, you have enough time for transfer. After customs clearance you can catch the Skylink train (at either Gates D1, 20, 25 or 34) and take it to Terminal A, where it stops between gates A13-16 & A29-34. OR you can take the 'Terminal Link' blue & green van, which stops at Terminal D between gates D17-24; and between gates A15-16 & A25-26.

    Hi, I'm arriving into and departing from Terminal D (BA5014 from Cancun AA/BA Codeshare and departing on BA 192 to LHR - 2.5 hrs connection). Can I through-check my bags from CUN to LHR and do I have to clear customs and immigration to get to my connecting flight please? What is the process from arriving to departing and will I have any spare time? Thank you for your advice.

     

    As an international arrival at DFW you need to go through customs procedure AA will transfer bags to BA. You have plenty of time. For all details open www.ifly.com/dfw and click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS, then scroll down to the text.

     

    Thank you so much, weaug12. I feel much happier now that I know I have to clear customs first. Having plenty of time is my "thing".

     

    Well, I have done the trip and I must complement the Immigration Officer we met on his positive attitude and friendliness. The fingerprinting process is a bit daunting (Have managed to avoid this in the UK so far ha ha). Ou bags were indeed transferred directly from American to British Airways. On arrival at the BA Flight gate, you have to pre-register with them if you are transferring from an AA flight. If you don't you will be denied boarding so get there early and then wander off to the shops. We met one of the terminal guides - a delightful lady - who was a great advert for Dallas! Thoroughly enjoyable stay even for just a couple of hours. And our bags arrive OK at Heathrow too.

    I know its 5 months ahead but i worry about my flight. I fly from Miami on december 28 to Paris via DFW. I would land at 3.15 in Forth Worth snd need to transfer to terminal D to connect to my flight to Paris that will take off at 5 pm. Im wortied that 1 hour and a half wouldnt be enough. Will i have to go thru security again?

     

    Miami Airport has a North Terminal with Concourse D, the Central Terminal with Concourses E, F & G, and the South Terminal with Concourses H & J. American Eagle & American Airlines use the North Terminal, you may arrive at either E or D gates & depart from D gates, accessible via Skytrain, which makes 4 stops at D gates. Your ticket will show you gate number, so will the overhead screen on your arrival at MIA.

     

    That is plenty of time at DFW. If you land in a terminal other than Terminal D, there is a tram system to get you to D. It's all inside security and very efficient.
