    Yes, that should be plenty of time. The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security.


  • Enough time to transfer from Domestic to International
    Nov 10, 2014
    I am traveling from Chicago to Dallas Fort Worth (American Airlines) to connect with a flight to Sydney (Qantas) 1 hour 15 minutes later. Is this enough time?


    Yes, that should be enough time. You can get to Terminal D where you will depart by the SkyLink train which runs inside security.


    Will there be enough time to pass immigration?


    You do not go through US Immigration when leaving the US. You will go through Australian Immigration when you get to Australia.


    Thanks a lot for your help Zap

  • Claim Baggage for Connecting Flights in DFW
    Nov 5, 2014
    My parents will fly from PVG to DFW via flight AA 128 on Nov, 10, then connect the flight AA 2396 to ATL after 2 hours 30 minutes. Do they have to claim baggage even though two flights operated by same air company (AA)? The flights where booked together. Thank you!


    Yes, they will arrive in Terminal D go through US Immigration, claim their bags, go through US Customs, then re-check their bags at the transfer desk, then they will go through security and to their departure gate. Once they are through security the Skylink train connects all terminals inside security.


  • Conection time enough?
    Dec 3, 2014
    I will arrive in DFW at 10:09 am and scheduled to take another flight to Vail EGE at 11:40 am. Is 1:31 enough time to make the connection? The flights where booked together and Im flying AA. Thank you very much.


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. All gate are connected inside security by the SkyLink train.


    Thanx for the answer. I forgot to say that Ill be arriving to DFW from mexico city and have to go through customs and immigration. Is it still enough time?


    Yes, that should still be enough time, but does leave less time to spare.


    Did you make it?

  • Guatemala to Dallas to Nashville
    Oct 28, 2014
    How much time do I need to go through customs and immigration from Guatemala to Dallas to catch a connecting flight to Nashville, TN.


    The minimum connection time is 90 minutes.

    AA138 landing DFW at 1455 and departing again on AA980 at 1710. Do I need to run? Do the ITI through-check of bags work as advertised? What are the steps to go through for ITI connection at this airport? I ask because I haven't done any transit in US airport before. Thanks!


    you should have enough time. Most of the way ITI bags work from all reports. You will arrive in DFW, go through US Immigration, proceed straight to US Customs, and then proceed up to the security checkpoint. Both of your flights will be in Terminal D.


    Thanks! That's reassuring. It means I don't need to pick up bags at DFW, right? The worst nightmare for me would be me flying into Peru with the bag waiting to be collected on the carousel at DFW...


    Yes, that's the policy. However, you do have a fair amount of spare time for your connection, so if you're really worried, you may want to check the baggage claim to make sure your bag wasn't accidentally put there.


    The baggage claim in that case is on the airside? For airports in Europe or Australia the baggage claim is always after immigration and one must exit to landslide afterwards and no backtracking is allowed Thanks again!


    The baggage claim is in between Immigration and Customs. I'm saying since you have some extra time, you could wait there to see if your bag comes out, before proceeding to Customs.


  • 30 min to get from C to D
    Oct 24, 2014
    I arrive in terminal C at 9:15 and depart at 9:45 terminal D... Will that be enough time?


    Yes, it's possible, the SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security. However, it leaves virtually no time to spare in case of delays.


  • Connecting
    Oct 22, 2014
    Coming from BJX Mexico on to JAX Florida is 1hr 25mins enough time to go through customs & connect to JAX flight ?


    It is 5 minutes below the minimum connection time for such a connection but you will probably be OK.


  • US Airways from New Orleans to Cabo via DFW
    Oct 22, 2014
    Hi , Im flying from New Orleans to Cabo via DFW with US Airways...is 1 hour at DFW sufficient time to transfer to the Cabo flight ?


    Actually both of your flights will be on American. Yes, that should be enough time. The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security at DFW.


  • Australian passport and clearing customs in DFW for connecting flight
    Oct 21, 2014
    I will be travelling from Cancun to Vegas via DFW on an Australian passport. Both flights are with AA landing at 14.20 with only 1 hour and 35 minutes between landing and takeoff, Will this be enough time to clear customs check in etc?


    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 you will go through security then take the SkyLink train to your departure terminal if it is not Terminal D. You should be issued both boarding passes in Cancun.


  • Connection to Amsterdam
    Oct 20, 2014
    Hello! Is one hour enough to make a connection from a domestic US flight (arriving from San Antonio) to an international flight (departing to Amsterdam)?


    Yes. that should be plenty of time if your tickets were purchased together. The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security.


  • 15 Minute Layover
    Oct 16, 2014
    I'm coming in from Forth Worth Florida, and will be landing in DFW and heading back to Vancouver, Canada with AA. The layover time has now changed to 15 minutes upon checking my ticket. Will that be enough time?


    Woops, that was a typo. It should say I'm coming in from Fort Myers, Florida. Not Fort Worth. Thanks.


    It might be enough time, but it really depends on your flight arriving a bit early. I would call AA.


  • Connection time to Seoul
    Oct 13, 2014
    I've been notified that my flight schedule was changed. The AA flight from Baton Rouge, Louisiana (BTR) will arrive DFW at 9:15 am. The next AA flight from Dallas (DFW) to Seoul (ICN) is 10:15 am. Do I (and my checked in baggages) have enough time to board on the flight to Seoul? Do I have to pick up my baggages and have them go through the security screen again at Dallas?


    All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, nothing with your luggage or security. The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security. An hour should be enough time.
