    Travelling from BNA with 1hr 7 min stop over in DFW travelling to LAS. Both AA flights, will I need to recheck my luggage? Will this be enough time to make the connecting?

     

    No, you don't have to do anything with your bags in DFW. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security.

    I am a Canadian flying from Vancouver to Dallas arriving at 5:28 am and then flying to Dayton at 7:06 am (1h 28 m layover). Do I need to grab my luggage in Dallas and check it in and go through customs or can I go straight to my connecting flight?

     

    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.

    Arriving DFW at 1811H from Seattle departing for an International flight at 1945H. Do I have to go thru US customs and is this enough time considering traveling with kids?

     

    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. If both tickets are on the same reservation you have plenty of time as all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security.

     

  • AA "World of Hurt?"

    AA has changed our itinerary, giving us a connection time of 45mins between Miami (arr 3:45pm) and Vancouver(dep 4:30pm) in DFW. The only luggage we will have is carry-on but I think what AA is offering us is the "World of Hurt" they inflict on their passengers, (based on what I've read here?) Thoughts? Should I just get a refund or go for it?

     

    All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. It is very easy. The skylink train connects all gates inside security. The "world of hurt" mainly refers to going through going through Immigration and Customs, which you don't have to do.

    I'm arriving DFW at 8.25am & have a connecting flight to Boston at 10.30am on the same American Airlines. Do I have enough time to clear customs and catch connecting flight?

     

    Sorry, I didn't make it clear in my initial post, I am transitting at DFW from Narita, international flight and catching my connection flight to Boston

     

    Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    I am flying Mongtego Bay to Boston doing connecion in DFW with 1 hr 35 min connecting time. Is this enough time to get through US Customs?

     

    That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. Personally I'd rather have at least 2 hours.

    I arrive in Dallas 8:49pm 13th July and leave Terminal D 10:15pm same day. Do I have enough time to get my bags off the American Airlines flight and checking on Qantas flight?

     

    If you purchased both tickets on the same reservation then you don't have to do anything with your bags in DFW - just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the Skylink train.

    My flight itenary has been changed without me knowing, I'm now traveling from Dublin to Chicago, then Chicago to Dallas, then Dallas to Vegas all together. I have been made aware I have 40mintues time slot to get of the plane from Chicago, and onto a plane to Vegas. Is this enough time?

     

    What airlines are you flying? I can't answer your question without that information.

     

    With Anerican Airlines

     

    Also only have hand luggage

     

    You have enough time. The Skylink train connects all terminals inside security and there's a decent chance both flights will be in the same terminal.

     

    Ok great Thankyou! Fingers crossed there's no delays

    Hi I am wanting to book.a flight from Heathrow to Oklahoma and all flights seem to involve a change at DFW. Realistically could you advise how long I would need to collect bags, go through immigration and transfer to the next flight. Some offered connections seem very quick and I am concerned about not making connections, as only ever flown direct before. Thanks

     

    About 2 hours is the minimum I recommend.

     

    Thanks for your quick reply That's great, I was worried airline website was not suggesting long enough but should be ok then!

    My flight from Mexico will be arriving DFW at 8:45 a.m. on a Tuesday with a connecting flight at 10:15 a.m., both using AA. Will I have to go through immigrations, collect my checked bag then go through security in that order, and have enough time? I purchased my tickets long ago before news of delays. Thank you.

     

    Yes, you will have to do all that. You should have just enough time if everything goes smoothly. Where in the US are you flying? Arriving in the morning is good as it allows more opportunities for rebooking if you miss your connection.

     

    I'm flying to Newark. What do you recommend about booking another flight?
