    Hi! I am flying from Memphis to Dallas and then Dallas to Santiago, Chile. My layover in Dallas is only 1 hour and fifteen minutes. I have checked luggage. Will I have enough time?

     

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

    Hi I am wanting to book.a flight from Heathrow to Oklahoma and all flights seem to involve a change at DFW. Realistically could you advise how long I would need to collect bags, go through immigration and transfer to the next flight. Some offered connections seem very quick and I am concerned about not making connections, as only ever flown direct before. Thanks

     

    About 2 hours is the minimum I recommend.

     

    Thanks for your quick reply That's great, I was worried airline website was not suggesting long enough but should be ok then!

    My flight from Mexico will be arriving DFW at 8:45 a.m. on a Tuesday with a connecting flight at 10:15 a.m., both using AA. Will I have to go through immigrations, collect my checked bag then go through security in that order, and have enough time? I purchased my tickets long ago before news of delays. Thank you.

     

    Yes, you will have to do all that. You should have just enough time if everything goes smoothly. Where in the US are you flying? Arriving in the morning is good as it allows more opportunities for rebooking if you miss your connection.

     

    I'm flying to Newark. What do you recommend about booking another flight?

    Hi. My flight arrives on Saturday 5 AM at DFW and I have a connection for a domestic flight in 1hour 40 minutes. It is enough time to make the connection and custom.

     

    At that early time in the morning that should be just about enough time.

    I am flying in from Madrid to Dallas then need to make a connection to Boise. Originally had an hour and a half for the stop but now only have 30 minutes after a delay. I'm American and don't have to check any bags. Can I make it?

     

    I really doubt it.

     

  • LHR to DFW (skip leg to LFT) DFW to COS

    We are flying LHR to DFW and then have a leg going to LFT but we need to skip this leg. We have purchased instead a DFW to COS flight. When we go through customs, can we pick up our bags and check in for the COS flight, or will our bags continue to LFT? Would we need to cancel the leg to LFT?

     

    Yes, you will claim your bags and can them check them to COS. However, if you no show your flight to LFT and it is not the last flight of your reservation, the entire rest of your reservation may be canceled.

     

    Thank you! It is.

    I land in DFW from Memphis at 6:04pm and have a 7:22pm flight to Mexico on a Sunday. Will I have enough time as an Australian national? All advice is appreciated!

     

    Yes, all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. the Skylink train connects all gates inside security. There is no US customs when leaving the US.

    I will travel from Cabo thru DFW to connect to my home state. Is an hour enough time to go through customs on a Friday in July? The other option is a 5 hour layover and I'd love to avoid that if possible.

     

    No, an hour is not enough time for an international to domestic connection through DFW.

    I will be flying into DFW on a domestic American Airlines flight and making a connecting flight to PHX which is also an American Airlines flight. Will I have to go through security again in DFW?

     

    No, you don't have to go through security in DFW. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security.

    Hi, I am coming in with AA on a flight from Germany and will have to connect to a domestic flight within 2 hrs 11 mins. Is that enough to make it through customs and recheck bags? Also, I've never had to recheck bags as I only flew direct so far. How does that work? Do I just follow signs for my connection flight Gate / domestic connections and will pass customs and the rechecking bag counters on the way or will I have to follow signs for baggage claim and pretty much exit the airport to reenter again for my connection? Also, will it be obvious where I have to put my luggage when rechecking, like, will it be just another counter or is it more like mass processing and everyone puts their luggage in the same place to be sorted and scanned by airport staff? Thank you!!!

     

    Yes, that should be just enough time. After immigration, you will claim your bags at the baggage, claim, go through US Customs, then drop them at the re-check desk immediately after, then go through security and take the Skylink train to your departure gate.

    Im flying from Colombia, Bogotá to DFW and connecting to Japan, Narita. Do i have to pass imigration, pick up my bag and recheck it? Or does the bag go straight. AFlight is booked in same airline both legs

     

    You will have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security but you do not have to claim and re-check your bags.

    I have an hour connection upon arrival at Dallas airport from Austin to Seoul, Korea. Do I have to go through security check again? And are the domestic and international terminals connected? Thanks

     

    If both tickets are on the same reservation then you don't have to go through security - just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. the Skylink train connects all terminals inside security.

    Hi, I have a flight from LAX to Newark with around 1hr 50 min layover at DFW. Will that be sufficient? Do we have to claim our luggage and be re-checked when we reach DFW?

     

    both via AA. can someone give me some insights on how the process will be like? it's our first trip to the States. thanks a bunch!

     

    No, will not have to recheck bags. AA is in 3 of 5 terminals at DFW. You may need to take the overhead Skylink to get to other terminal. Very easy and quick.
