I have to recheck baggage after I arrive at DFW terminal B on American Eagle. I will be leaving DFW on American at Terminal D.
Do I have to recheck my luggage at Terminal D or can they be rechecked at the Terminal B? These flights are not on the same reservation.
either call AA to have your two reservations joined together or show your second AA confirmation to the check-in agent at your origin airport. Then you will get your bags checked through to your final destination and won't have to worry about them in DFW.
Hello,
My return flight from San Jose, Costa Rica to Hong Kong will have 2 stopovers at DFW and Narita,Tokyo respectively. The transfer time from DFW to Narita is only 1 hour and 12 minutes. Do I have enough time to transfer? Thank you.
Realistically, no, that's not enough time. You have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security and back to your departure gate to board the flight to Tokyo.
Hi. I have 2 hours 50 min transit time at DFW. Is that enough time to clear immigration & custom? Do I need to re-check-in my luggage again for flight to Des Moines (DSM)?
Yes, that is enough time. Yes, 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 to your departure gate on the Skylink train in DFW.
Transit time 1hr 50 mins, do we simply transit through terminal D or do we have to do the immigration/security thing and if so is there enough time or will this be tight?
Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I'm flying in August from Pit to DFW then connecting to ELP. When I booked my flights I made sure I would stay in the same terminal (first time flying alone and first time having a connecting flight) but now AA changed my flights. It states I'll change terminals. My arriving flight in is on American Airlines and connecting is through Mesa as American Eagle. Connecting time is 1 hour 14 mins. Is this enough time for me considering it will be my first time there? Thanks!
That is enough time. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security. There was no guarantee anyway that they would have both been in the same terminal in the first place.
Hello, We are Canadians flying from Vancouver, arriving in Dallas one hour before we need to catch our next flight to Mexico City. Is it possible to make the connection in time?
Yes, that is possible, you will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security.
Hi I'm flying into DFW on an AA flight from London arriving 13:20 and then have to clear immigration/customs before my onward AA flight to MCO at 15:00. Will I make it ok? Thanks
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
We only have 40 minutes to make connection to Cancun. Is this enough time?
That's from Lafayette, LA
Yes, that is enough time if everything goes perfectly but leaves no time to spare. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security. You will arrive in B and depart from D.
Thank you
Dear Sirs,
we are Italian and we have bought the flights(AA239) from FCO to DFW and after (AA2417) to MEX. We have 2 houes and half in DFW to do all. Is enough? What do we do in DWF? Thanks
You will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security and go back to your departure gate also in Terminal D. You should have enough time.
We are traveling from Tulsa, OK to Cancun, MX in October and we have a layover in DFW. We are flying with American Airlines, but we only have an hour layover. Will that be enough time for catch our next flight?
Yes, all you have to do on your way to Cancun is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security.
