  • International connection in DFW
    May 7, 2015
    2
    Hi ZAP, I'm planning on travelling from London Heathrow to Guadalajara (Mexico) via DFW. Flights are with BA from London to DFW, and then AA (operated by US Airways) to Guadalajara. I'm a UK citizen with ESTA clearance, but will have checked baggage. The time in DFW between connections is 1 hour 55 mins on the way out, and 1 15 mins on the way back. Is this cutting it close?

     

    The 1 hr 55 mins on the way there should be fine. 1 hr 15 mins is pretty risky. You won't have to claim your bags because you're on an international to international connection, but everything will have to go perfectly to make your connection on the return.

     

    Great, thanks very much!

    Hi , I have 46 Minutes to connect International flight from DFW to LHR from terminal B to D. Is it possible to catch the flight . Do i need to go for security check again or Do i need to reschedule my flight

     

    All you have to do in DFW is take the SkyLink Train from Terminal B to D. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

  • Baggae and layover questions

    Hi, I am flying from PSP-DFW-CUN. My layover in DFW is 40 minutes. Do I have to collect by checked baggage at DFW then re-check it to go to CUN or do I just walk from terminal to terminal?

     

    You do not have to collect your bags in Dallas on your way to cancun. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Terminal D.

    hi all, I am a non US person having a 40mins layover time at DFW from VPS to MCO.. Booked on American Airlines / American Eagle. Do i need to collect my luggage and recheck in and go thru immigration or can i just walk to the gate en route to MCO? Let me know, thanks much.

     

    VPS, DFW, and MCO are all located in the United States. You do not have to go through Immigration on trips within the United States. All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate in Terminal B to your departure gate in Terminal A, C, or D. The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security.

     

  • Flying Doha to Dallas to Austin - Customs Clearance Concern

    I am moving back from Saudi Arabia to Austin tonight (4/30). I fly Dammam to Doha to Dallas (Qatar Air) and then to Austin on American Airlines but the entire booking was done through Qatar Airlines. I only have 1 hour and 35 minutes in Dallas. Concerned as I have 6 large checked bags. Will I make my Austin connection with having to deal with Customs? Any tips are greatly appreciated! Thank you.

     

    That should be barely enough time to make your connection to Austin.

    Do I need to collect my bags, go through immigration and then recheck my bags before getting on my connecting flight? If so, I have 90 minutes in between flights. I

     

    Yes, you need to do precisely that. You should barely have enough time if everything goes smoothly. If you miss your connection, thankfully American flies lots of flights from DFW to LGA that you can be rebooked on.

     

  • Transfer from terminal D to terminal B

    Flying into terminal D and my connecting flight is terminal B just 40 minutes later. How long will it take me to connect and what's the quickest way? Thanks!

     

    Most arrivals in Terminal D are International - where are you coming from? If your arrival into Terminal D is domestic or precleared that is barely enough time. The SkyLink train is the fastest way. If your flight into Terminal D is international non-precleared then there is no way you can make that connection.

     

  • Process of transfer from international flight to domestic flight.

    I am British flying from UK on BA to San antonio via Dallas. I have 90 minutes to transfer. The domestic flight ( although BA Booked) transfers to AA from Dallas to San Antonio. I have never done a flight transfer before and unable to find info on the process despite emailing Dallas airport twice. Please can you advise me of the process of what I need to do when I arrive at Dallas. I am confused as to whether I have to collect my baggage or whether it is transferred automatically. Do I go through passport control and customs. Which do I do first. Thanks

     

    On the way to San Antonio, when you arrive in Dallas Terminal D, you will go through US Immigration (passport control), claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate, which will likely be in another terminal. The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security.

    Hey, I'm flying with American Airlines from YEG-DFW-SAL roundtrip. When I land in DFW, do I need to claim baggage or through any screenings?. I have a 5 hour overlay so I think time is good but I'm concerned with my return flight I as arrive in DFW from SAL 1:47 and depart at 3:20pm back to YEG. Do I have to go get my baggage and go through US Immigration and Customs?.

     

    On your way to San Salvador you will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Edmonton. All you have to do in Dallas is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security. On your way back, yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security but should not have to claim your bags since you are on an international to international connection.

    Hello, My wife and will be flying DXB - DFW on Emirates and then a 2 hr layover before a our Delta flight to MSP. We have Global Entry and TSA PreCheck and no checked baggage. We should have plenty of time correct?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Check in online before you leave dubai for your Delta flight and then you can go through security in Terminal D and take the Train to Terminal E. Otherwise you will have to take the shuttle bus to Terminal E which is much slower.

    I'm flying out of Toronto going to Mexico, with a 1hr 9min layover in Dallas - is this enough time? Do we need to go through US customs, claim & recheck our bags, etc.? Both flights are with US Airways. Our return trip is another layover in DFW with 1hr 40mins. - will there be a longer delay coming from Mexico?

     

    Note that both of your flights will be operated by American Airlines. On your way to Mexico you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Dallas is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All terminals are connected inside security by the SkyLink Train. You have enough time. On your return, in Dallas, you will go through US Immigration and Customs and security but should not have to claim your bags since you are on an international to international connection. You should barely have enough time there. You will go through Canadian Immigration and Customs when you get to Toronto.

     

  • Connections: AA - Heathrow to Dallas to Chattanooga

    I am a US citizen flying on AA a direct flight from Heathrow to DFW . This ticket was purchased by my work. When I arrive at DFW, I would like to take an AA connecting flight to Lovell Field Chattanooga, TN and I will purchase this ticket. My flight arrives at DFW at 4:30 and the connecting AA flight to Lovell Field Chattanooga departs at 6:35. I will have one check on piece of luggage and a carry on bag. Is there enough time for me to make the connecting flight? Can you please provide instructions on how I should let AA know that Chattanooga is my final destination and the procedures once I land at DFW to make the connecting flight to Lovell Field Chattanooga?

     

    If you show your DFW-CHA confirmation to the AA agent in London they should be able to tag your bag through to CHA and issue your DFW-CHA boarding pass. In DFW, you will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and take the SkyLink train to Terminal B where your flight to CHA will depart.

     

  • is 90 mins enough from international flight to connect?

    I'm flying into Dallas FW from London Heathrow on American Airlines flight with 9&12 yr old all on British passports with ESTA. Flight due in 1.45pm. Connecting to American Eagle flight (booked through AA) 90 mins later. Is this enough time? Will I need to clear US immigration, collect bags, clear customs & recheck bags and tickets? Should I rather take later connection (which gets me in to Santa Fe much later than desired?). If I miss the connection, how likely am I to get onto the next (same day) flight to Santa Fe? Advice appreciated!

     

    Yes, you will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and take the SkyLink train to Terminal B where you will depart. 90 minutes is the bare minimum allowed for this connection. If everything goes smoothly you can make it. If you do miss your connection there is a good chance you could be rebooked on the later flight to Santa Fe. They may also rebook you to Albuquerque and pay for your ground transportation to Santa Fe.

    We are flying into DFW from Cancun then to MKE all through AA. our flight arrives at DFW at 8:08pm and leaves for MKE at 9:45pm on a Tuesday night. What process can I expect as far as custom and baggage claim, especially since I am traveling with an infant and 10 yr old. Is this a reasonable amount of time to connect with it being later at night? Thanks for your response.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and take the SkyLink train to your departure terminal/gate.

    I will be traveling from IND to Puerto Vallarta with an hour and 15 minute layover in Dallas. Will this be enough time? Where will I be going through customs? Do I need to retrieve any checked baggage? My layover on the way home is 3 hours.

     

    On your way to Puerto Vallarta you will go through Mexican customs in Mexico. All you have to do in Dallas is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security. You will depart from Terminal D. You will have plenty of time if your first flight is on-time. On the return you will go through US Immigration and customs in DFW, but have plenty of time for that as well.
