  • Mexico to Brisbane, Australia connection
    Apr 17, 2013

    I'm travelling from Mexico City on AA658 to Dallas FW then onto Brisbane, Australia on QF008. The flight on the Mexico leg arrives at 2005 and the Qantas flight leaves at 21.55. Will I have time to make the connection through immigration and security?

     

    You arrive & depart from Terminal D of DFW. On arrival, you need to go through passport check, pick up your bags, go through customs clearance, re-check-in your bag (if AA transfer bags to Qantas), go through security check and proceed on to your connecting gate (Terminal D has gates D6-40). NOTE if AA does not transfer your bags, you need, after customs clearance, check in your bag with Qantas. Your time should suffice.

    Arriving at DFW FROM Madrid in Spain (Europe) with American Airlines and then picking up another flight with A.A to Los Angeles.How do I go thru customs and where do I have to pick up and drop off again my bags.

     

    Going through immigration is fairly self-explanatory, you'll be funneled through to a bunch of desks, you show your passport to the deck, they look at it and let you though, then you claim your bag at a baggage claim, then you go past a customs desk and hand your customs form to the officer there. Then you drop your bags back with AA at re-check once you exit immigration. Then go upstairs and go through security again, and if necessary, take the skylink train to your gate.

     

    Thanks very much, thats cleared my doubts

     

    I'm arriving on American Airlines domestic from MSP and and transfering to Korean Air will I have to claim my bags for customs there. I will have about 2 hours for the transfer

    Recently I have experienced much slower immigration processing at DFW. Current connection has me coming from MEX to SFO via DFW with a 1 hour total connect time until DFW-SFO departure. Given current procedures and time is that enough?

     

    It will be tough. Especially if your SFO flight isn't leaving from Terminal D. However, there will probably be a later flight to SFO if you miss your connection.

     

  • Reclam baggage between flights?

    Hi, we are flying from the UK to Las Vegas for four nights, we then fly from Vegas to Dallas wth 1hr 45 mins until we fly on to Cancun. Will we need to get our baggage between flights or is this done for us? Thank you

     

    You will not have to claim your baggage in Dallas - you only have to go to the gate for your flight to Cancun.

    Arrive at DFW from New Orleans and have 1 hour to next flight to London Heathrow.Will this be enough time,do I need to go through Customs again?

     

    You do not need to go through customs after a domestic flight, you just have to get from your first flight to your second flight. If your flights are not in the same terminal take Skylink between the terminals.

     

    Many Thanks,do you think 1 hour is enough time?

     

    If your first flight is on-time, then yes, 1 hour is sufficient

     

    Many Thanks for you help

    I'm flying from San Francisco to Buenos Aires and only have a 50 minute connection time at DFW. Is that enough?

     

    If your first flight is on-time, yes, it's enough. All terminals at DFW are conveniently connected via the TerminaLink train.

     

    thanks.

     

  • Tight connection to BZE/Belize flight

    I'm traveling San Jose, CA to Belize City, all on AA. The connection is 50 minutes, arriving Term A and departing Term D. How difficult is the connection and which is quickest way to get to the gate?

     

    At DFW, 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. At TA it stops between A13-16 & A29-34.

     

    Take the Skylink train, it should take no more than 15-20 minutes to get between your gates.

     

  • Custom time entering DFW from Belize

    We have a two hour layover between entering FWD from Belize and making our connection flight. Is that enough time to get through customs? We are not checking any luggage.

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time, especially if your onward flight is also on American.

  • Arr fromSydney/Dept to Cancun

    Hi Team, I'm landing from Sydney at 13.45pm and want to depart at 16.25 to Cancun. Couple of questions: A - Is 2.40hr enough time to clear customs (International flight), collect bags and check-in (International flight)? and B - How long would it take between landing Term D (Qantas) and leaving from Term A (AA)? Your answers are appreciated.

     

    On arrival a DFW, at Terminal D, you need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance and re-check-in your bag where indicated. (Qantas & AA both belong to the OneWorld Alliance - your bags will then automatically be transferred to your AA flight). To get to Terminal A, take the free 'Terminal Link' blue & green accessible vans transfer passengers outside the baggage claim of each terminal, running every 10 minutes, 5am-midnight Nearest pick-up/drop-off areas at corresponding terminals are at gate D24 and between gates: A15-16 & A25-26. You have plenty of time.

     

    Thanks Tujan.... this is helpfull

     

    is 2 hrs and 5 minutes enough to get through customes on American from Costa Rica

    How much time do I need to get from terminal O to terminal B.

     

    I suggest you open www.ifly.com/dfw, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text. (there is no Terminal O - must be D) -

    Have 40 minutes to get from B22 to D34...better to walk or skytram?

     

    The Skylink train runs inside security - its station at TB is between gates B9-12 & B28-31; its stations at TD are at gates D2, D20, D25 & D34.

    I am looking to book a flight that connects in dallas from indianapolis but says i enter at terminal 0 ... and will leave for Sydney in Terminal D .. all the flights are thru qantas airlines and just want to make sure the hour I have would be plenty of time to make it from terminal 0 which i cant find anywhere on a map .. lol .. to terminal D thanks heaps .. supposed to book flight in about 24 hours .. so help would be great asap .. thanks again

     

    At DFW, Qantas uses only Terminal D (someone must have taken the D for an O). Note that TD has a very long gate area with gates D6-D40 - served by the Skylink train, which makes stops are near gates D1, D20, D25 & D34.

    I arrive Gate D40 at 5:20 and connect at Gate A15 at 6am. Will I have enough time to make connection and what's fastest, easiest way?

     

    A little more time will be best.

     

    On arrival at DFW take the free Skylink train running 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. A gates at TA are A17-39. You have enough time.

    I arrive at gate A17 at 905AM and depart gate D31 at 945Am. AA made this change for me. Is that enough time for me to get from gate to gate?

     

    On arrival at DFW, Terminal A, take the Skylink train, running every 2 mins & taking no more than 5 mins (follow signs) to Terminal D where you get off at gate D34 and walk to D31.
