  • transfer time
    Sep 4, 2012
    Providing my plane arrives at Term B on time at 17.00 have I enough time to get to Term D for flight leaving at 17.00


    On arrival at DFW you have nearly three hours available between flights and can leisurely roam the International Terminal to find food & drink or shops (interactive touch screens will give you locations). I suggest you exit Terminal B and take the free 'Terminal Link' (blue & green accessible vans) located outside the baggage claim of each terminal, which runs every 10 minutes - the nearest pick-up/drop-off areas at corresponding terminals are beween: A15-16 & A25-26; and D17 and D24. Then go through security check at Terminal D; look at overhead screen to check your departure flight and gate frequently.

    How do I got from Terminal E to Terminal D? I read that Terminal E doesn't connect to the other terminals?? Any help would be appreciated. My flight is today.


    At DFW, to get from one terminal to the other you have two options. (a) The free Skylink train runs inside the post-security area of each of the five terminals, starting at the International Terminal D at gates D2, D20, D25 & D34, and connecting to the other terminals by two Skylink stations each (close to the left and right end). It runs every 2 mins and takes about 5 minutes of transfer time on average. Terminals A, B, C & E Skylink stations are between gates A13-16 & A29-34, B9-12 & B28-31, C8-12 & C27-32, and E8-11 & E31-32 . (b) Alternatively, free 'Terminal Link' blue & green accessible vans transfer passengers outside the baggage claim of each terminal, running every 10 minutes, 5am-midnight, thereafter call 972-574-5465. Nearest pick-up/drop-off areas at corresponding terminals are beween: A15-16 & A25-26; B12-13 & B23; C12-15 & C24-27; D17 and D24; E9-13 & E18-21.

  • Terminal D to Terminal A
    Aug 16, 2012
    I arrive at terminal D from British Airways, and have 1 hour and 45 minutes to transfer to an American Airlines flight in Terminal A. I know that I will have to go through passport control and customs, retrieve my bag, and re-check my bag. I am concerned that I may not have enough time in between flights. Does anybody know if this will be enough time, and also what the quickest way to get from Terminal D to A will be? In total, what will be my estimated time from terminal to terminal?? I really can not afford to miss my flight.


    First of all, find out if British Airways transfers your bags to your American Airline flight - if not, you would need to re-check-in your bag with American at their baggage counter in Terminal A. Either way, you have enough time for transfer. After customs clearance you can catch the Skylink train (at either Gates D1, 20, 25 or 34) and take it to Terminal A, where it stops between gates A13-16 & A29-34. OR you can take the 'Terminal Link' blue & green van, which stops at Terminal D between gates D17-24; and between gates A15-16 & A25-26.


  • Connecting flights in / out Terminal D
    Sep 14, 2012
    Hi, I'm arriving into and departing from Terminal D (BA5014 from Cancun AA/BA Codeshare and departing on BA 192 to LHR - 2.5 hrs connection). Can I through-check my bags from CUN to LHR and do I have to clear customs and immigration to get to my connecting flight please? What is the process from arriving to departing and will I have any spare time? Thank you for your advice.


    As an international arrival at DFW you need to go through customs procedure AA will transfer bags to BA. You have plenty of time. For all details open and click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS, then scroll down to the text.


    Thank you so much, weaug12. I feel much happier now that I know I have to clear customs first. Having plenty of time is my "thing".


    Well, I have done the trip and I must complement the Immigration Officer we met on his positive attitude and friendliness. The fingerprinting process is a bit daunting (Have managed to avoid this in the UK so far ha ha). Ou bags were indeed transferred directly from American to British Airways. On arrival at the BA Flight gate, you have to pre-register with them if you are transferring from an AA flight. If you don't you will be denied boarding so get there early and then wander off to the shops. We met one of the terminal guides - a delightful lady - who was a great advert for Dallas! Thoroughly enjoyable stay even for just a couple of hours. And our bags arrive OK at Heathrow too.


  • December trip
    Aug 11, 2012
    I know its 5 months ahead but i worry about my flight. I fly from Miami on december 28 to Paris via DFW. I would land at 3.15 in Forth Worth snd need to transfer to terminal D to connect to my flight to Paris that will take off at 5 pm. Im wortied that 1 hour and a half wouldnt be enough. Will i have to go thru security again?


    Miami Airport has a North Terminal with Concourse D, the Central Terminal with Concourses E, F & G, and the South Terminal with Concourses H & J. American Eagle & American Airlines use the North Terminal, you may arrive at either E or D gates & depart from D gates, accessible via Skytrain, which makes 4 stops at D gates. Your ticket will show you gate number, so will the overhead screen on your arrival at MIA.


    That is plenty of time at DFW. If you land in a terminal other than Terminal D, there is a tram system to get you to D. It's all inside security and very efficient.
