  • Columbus to DFW headed to Honolulu

    9/10/16 flying in from Columbus,Oh to DWF arrival time says 9:39am Depart time for next plane is 10:50am headed to Honolulu, HI. Can you tell me what terminals we are coming in and going out of and if that is enough time in between.

     

    That is plenty of time. You will both arrive an depart from Terminal A, C, or D. You won't know the exact gate until the day of your flight. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security. You have enough time.

     

  • London to Las Vegas terminal changes

    Hi, We are looking at flying via Dallas from London to Las vegas. The flight get in to Terminal D at Dallas and takes off again at Terminal 0. We have 2hr change over time. Would this be enough time and is it easy to change terminals? Where would we clear customs/security-here or in LV? If we have booked it as one through ticket would our baggage go straight through to LV? Thanks for help.

     

    There is no Terminal 0. You will depart from Terminal A or C. Yes, 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 take the Skylink train to your departure gate. You should have enough time.

    I've got a one hour twenty minute connection with American Airlines arriving from Bogota and flying onto LAX. Is that enough time to make the connection?

     

    No, that's not very reasonable. AA has lots of flights from DFW to LAX that you can be rebooked on.

    I am coming from San Diego airport on 10/10/2016 to Dallas airport (arrival time 9.05pm) and my connecting flight to London is at 10.05pm (only 1 hour for the connection). I hold a French passport. I need to know if i will have to go through security and custom control or not and if this is enough time for the transit.

     

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

    My wife and I are returning from Jamacia (MBJ) in a few months with an arrival time of 5:05pm and departing for Fargo (FAR) at 6:40pm. I know we will need to go through customs and recheck our bags (1 bag each). With only only an 1.5 hour layover is enough time? All flights had this short of a layover without an overnight stay. Also which terminals will we be traveling between and how quick can you get between them?

     

    That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. You will arrive in Terminal D and depart from Terminal B. Once you go through security the ride on the Skylink takes less than 10 minutes.

    Hi, I am arriving on Qatar Airways to DFW (Terminal D) at 03:55pm and my onward travel is at 06:40pm on AA1393 on 21 Aug. Do I need to go through customs/immigration, claim baggage and recheck-in with American Airlines ? The booking does not specify the departure Terminal for AA1393. Do I need to take a skylink train ?

     

    You will arrive in Terminal D, 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 in Terminal A or C on the skylink train.

     

  • Flight from New Orleans to Dallas connecting to Qantas Syd Flight

    We are flying into Dallas from New Orleans and only have 50mins to connect to Qantas (SYD) flight. This was booked through Flightcentre Australia. How far apart are domestic terminals to INT?? Is this enough time?? Thanks

     

    You will arrive in Terminal A or C and depart from Terminal D. All you have to do is take the Skylink train from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if your flight from New Orleans is on-time.

    I'm making air arrangements through a vacation tour company. They are trying to sell me a flight from Albuquerque to DFW that connects to a flight to Heathrow. The problem is that the connection time is 42 minutes. I believe that's way too short given that I arrive in Terminal B and depart from Terminal D. Am I right?

     

    It's not impossible. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security. However, it leaves no time to spare if the flight from Albuquerque is delayed.

    Flying from Lima to Denver thru Dallas all on American. Could not get boarding pass for Dallas to Denver leg; have 1.5 hr in Dallas. I assume I have to claim bags and take thru customs, then recheck bags - is this correct; do I have enough time?

     

    That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.

     

  • BA1530 Terminal D transfer to IB4359 Terminal A at Dallas FW

    Arriving from London, transferring to internal flight to Portland with British passports. Is it possible to complete this in 1 and 1/2 hours and as all flights are operated by American Airlines, presumably bags will go right through? Thank you for your help.

     

    In Dallas 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 take the skylink train to your departure gate. This is technically a legal connection but it depends on everything going absolutely perfectly for you to make it.

     

    thank you.... I think it's too risky for new travellers who would have difficulty navigating stand-bys if everything went wrong.

     

  • Terminal A to D

    Hello. We will at DFW at 6am, we should check out our laughage and go to Terminal D, for Emirates airline on 12pm. Do we have enough time to get there? Also it that to hard to get to terminal D from terminal A?

     

    If you have to collect bags in A and then take them to D to re-check then you need to take the shuttle bus which runs infrequently and takes a bit of time, but you have 6 hours, which is plenty of time.

     

    Can we walk or get skyline?

     

    The skylink train runs inside security (so you can't take it with bags you need to check) and the area between terminals outdoors at DFW is not very pedestrian friendly.

    arriving from sydney, after customs is it far to walk to terminal c (stretch the legs after long flight)

     

    Yes, it's not unreasonable to go through security and then walk to C instead of taking the Skylink train if you have plenty of time.

     

    thanks for the reply ! I have about 3 hrs layover, but I did wonder how far it is to terminal c ? 5 to 10 min walk ?

     

    More like 10-15

    I will be arriving at Dallas from Denver at 5:36 pm with AA and then my next flight is at 6:35 from Dallas to Champaign with AA again. This leaves me 59 minutes to connect. Is that enough time?

     

    Yes that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. The Skylink train connects all terminals inside security.
