Flying with US passports on AA Heathrow to Dallas, landing at Gate D and then have a connection to Reno, via AA at Gate A. Traveling as a single parent w/ 2 toddlers and 2 checked bags.
What is the connection process and will 2 hours be enough?
You will 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 on the skylink train. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Arriving from Canada YYZ on American Airlines AA 1040 at 2109. Dep for Sydney Australia on QF 8 at 22.15. Is 1hr 6 mins sufficient time to make the connection and which terminal do we arrive and depart from? Thanks
You will arrive in Terminal A, C, or D and depart from Terminal D. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the Skylink train as you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto.
Hi, I booked a flight LIM-DFW-ORD-HPN, but family plans changed and we have to get to MCI instead of HPN. Called AA and the cost for that change is insane. Today I searched for DFW-MCI flights and they are really cheap, so what I want to do is: take the LIM - DFW flight, get the bags through customs and instead of rechecking them inmediatly, just take them to the terminal where the flight to MCI departs and have them checked there. Is that OK? Do I have to tell anything to AA? Thanks!!!
Yes, if this is the last flight of your international reservation you can do this.
I've got an AA redeye from Buenos Aires arriving at Dallas FW 05:06 am, then an Air Canada one to Vancouver departing at 07:25 am, I'm aware Air Canada it's on terminal E, don't know the specific terminal for the AA one though. How tight on time am I really? Considering I have to claim baggage and then check it again. Would appreciate if someone can guide me through the steps (immigration, claim baggage, customs, etc.) Will this 2:20 hs, be enough in normal conditions, plane on time and all? Thx
You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then take a shuttle bus to Terminal E, check your bags with Air Canada, and go through security. You realistically do not have enough time.
Thanks a lot, how much time will you recommend for this sort of connection?
Hello. I'm flying AA on a red eye from ONT to RSW with a connecting flight at DFW. I depart ONT at 1:10 AM and arrive in DFW at 6:07 AM. My departing flight leaves DFW at 6:55 AM. Will the 48 mins provide enough time to make the connection? Thanks.

Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time.
On 6/26 travelling American Airlines 5796 from FWA to DFW arriving at 9:32 AM Terminal B and transferring to Mesa Airlines flight 5781 to SLP, MX departing at 10:40 AM Terminal D. Is there enough time in the layover to get through the airport and make the flight?
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is take the Skylink Train from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There's also a chance your flight to SLP will depart from Terminal B.
