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.
Hi, We are a party of four with British passports and have a flight from Vegas arriving into DFW, for a flight to Cancun.
I have 1 HOUR and 45 MINS at DFW to make the connection.
Can you please let me know if this is enough time and also if I will have to collect my bags and recheck in for the Mexico flight.
Appreciate any advise you can give.
If both flights are on American you won't have to claim your bags, but you will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hello. I am a U.S. citizen flying on American Airlines from Amsterdam, Neth. to DFW and then connecting on to an American Eagle flight to Manhattan, KS. The layover time at DFW is only 1 hour 23 ". Is this enough time to make the transfer and can you tell me from which terminal the American Eagle flight will depart? Thank you.
That's below the minimum International to domestic connection time of 90 minutes. Your flight to Manhattan will depart from Terminal B.
Hi
Can you please advise how I find out which terminal and gate I need for American airlines flight 611 to Atlanta???
I will be arriving at terminal D. Any help greatly appreciated.
That flight will depart from A or C. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security.
I'm traveling from Stillwater, Oklahoma to Frankfurt, Germany. My connection in DFW is only 45 minutes. Will this be enough time?
Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Stillwater is on-time but obviously doesn't leave much time to spare if it isn't. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security.
We are landing in DFW from a direct Qantas flight from Sydney Australia We are then connecting to an American Airlines flight to San Jose Costa Rica. There is a i hour 40 minute gap between flights - is this enough time and what do we need to do at the airport as a transit traveller - customs etc??
That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. You will have to 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.
I am looking at a trip from Atlanta to Cabo, Mexico. On the return trip there is a stop in Dallas - Fort Worth with a 1 hour and 30 minute layover. Is that enough time to get through customs and to my gate for my flight to Atlanta?
That is just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Will be traveling to Lima, Peru in early October from Vancouver, Canada with a Canadian passport. On the way to Lima, layover in DFW is 3 hours which I think is enough time. Worried about the way back to Vancouver, with a layover in DFW which is almost 90 minutes (but not quite). Will this be enough time? All booked under same ticket (American Airlines) and will try best not to check in any items.
That is difficult. Everything will have to go perfectly for you to make it.
Hello me and if wife are traveling from London to Mexico City and connect in Dallas halfway.
We have 1 hour and 45 minutes to connect - I am a Mexican citizen with a travelers visa and my wife is American.
We arrive in terminal D and leave via terminal C.
Q1: Can we make it in time?
Q2: Can I tag along my wife through the line for american citizens (to save time)? We will bring our marriage certificate if proof is needed.
Both flights should be in Terminal D. You won't be able to go through the US Citizens line since you are entering the US on a Visa and the kiosks can't handle those.
Alright good to know, thanks!
Do you think we can make it with an hour and 45 mins?
Arrive around 3pm on a Monday, don't know how that USB for peak hours.
That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am coming from Phoenix going to hongkong, connecting flight is SFW, is 1 1 hr 35 min enough? DO I need to go out and rechecked in at immigration?
There is no US Immigration when leaving the US. All you have to do in DFW on your way to Hong Kong is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security.
