  • Change of Planes 51 Mins
    Mar 12, 2015
    I am flying from LAX @1:15am Terminal 4 to my first stop being at DFW @6:08am Terminal 0 ( not sure why terminal 0 I looked it up and that terminal doesn't exist, any idea where I can get the correct terminal? ) US Airways 2400 I then have 51 minutes to change planes Depart DFW &6:59am Terminal 0 again. Really concerned about not being sure what terminal 0 is. Arriving @ 8:07am in San Antonio. Terminal B US Airways 2412. Is this enough time for the plane change ? Will I have to get my luggage as well. It's my first time flying alone. And ever having to switch planes. I just don't want to get lost nor miss my flight. Any help is appreciated in advance. Thank you


    Your flight from LAX could arrive in Terminal A, C, or D. That's probably why your itinerary says "0", because it could be 3 different terminals. Note that all your flights will be operated by American Airlines, not US Airways, so make sure to go to the American Airlines counters in LAX and San Antonio to check your baggage. You will not have to claim your bags in Dallas either way. If you need to change terminals, the SkyLink Train in DFW connects all Terminals inside security. You have enough time.


    Thank you very much !


  • From Costa Rica-Customs, terminal chg. in DFW-Is 80 mins enough time? to RDU-American
    Mar 10, 2015
    Hi, We are flying home on American Airlines from a mission trip from San Jose, Costa Rica arriving at DWF on a Saturday in July at 12:11 pm and have a terminal change to Raleigh/Durham at 1:35 pm. Will this be enough time for customs, bag check, and terminal change? Thank you!


    No, that will be quite difficult. That is 10 minutes below the minimum connection time and many people are reporting that even the Minimum time of 90 minutes is no longer sufficient at DFW during peak periods.


    Thank you!


  • MSP(Minneapolis) to DFW-Transit Time 80 mins enough to Catch Qatar Air
    Mar 10, 2015
    Hi, I have a flight from MSP to DFW (operated by American Airways) lay over - 80 mins Then Connect to a flight to Doha (Qatar Airways). I have a wheel chair request. will i be able to make it to the connecting flight with this 80 mins time.


    Yes, assuming you purchased your tickets together they will just take you on the SkyTrain from your arrival Terminal to Terminal D. you do not have to go through security.


    Thanks for your reply:-) Confirmed with the Qatar Airline. AA connecting to Qatar Air also lands in Terminal D.

    I am flying from Los Cabos, Mexico to Dallas at 6:45 pm via US Airways and connecting via US Airways at 8:15 pm for my next flight. Will an hour and 30 minutes be enough time to go through customs and get to my next plane?


    Note that your first and possibly both flights will be operated by American Airlines. 90 minutes is the minimum international to domestic connection time in DFW. Everything will have to go right for you to make your connection.


  • Arriving Qantas & transferring for Boston
    Mar 9, 2015
    I'm arriving at DFW at 1.35 on Qantas and have a connecting flight to Boston with AA leaving at 3.30. Will I make this flight?


    That should barely be enough time. You will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security then take the SkyLInk train to your departure gate if your gate to Boston is not in Terminal D.


  • 57 Minute Layover Enough Time
    Mar 6, 2015
    Hi, I will be travelling From Vancouver To Cancun via DFW on a Sunday arriving around noon.Is a 57 minute layover enough time to change planes (same carrier,AA), and will I have to re-claim my bags in Dallas?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. You will not have to claim your bags in Dallas. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have enough time. The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security.


  • domestic to international... in time?
    Mar 5, 2015
    Hey all, I got a AA flight landing in DFW 3/11 at 8:15pm and an Qantas flight leaving DFW at 9:10pm. Everything I've read says 50 minutes minimum, I got 55 if all goes well. Just wondering if I should be worried. thanks


    That should be plenty of time. The SkyLink train can get you between any two gates in under 10 minutes.


  • CUN to LAS (via dfw)
    Mar 5, 2015
    Hi, We are flying out of cancun at 6am and arriving at dfw at 9am. Our connection to Las Vegas is at 10:35am. I was wondering if this is enough time to transit? We are traveling on a Tuesday and we have checked bags and also Australian passport holders. Thanks! Ria


    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 go through security and take the SkyLink train to your departure terminal.


  • Do I have enough time. I walk slow because of a back issue
    Mar 4, 2015
    I am taking a flight from Fort Wayne to Austin with a connecting flight in Dallas. Only a 46 minute layover. I need help getting to the tram and next gate. I don't think I can walk that fast to make the flight. What do I do?


    Call American and request wheelchair service.


  • New York to Belize City
    Mar 3, 2015
    If I land on time at 10:57 am (JFK to DFW on AA), will I have enough time to make a connecting flight to BZE departing on AA at 11:54 am?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time if the first flight is on-time. You just have to take the SkyLink train from your arrival terminal to Terminal D where your BZE flight will depart. The Skylink runs inside security.


    Thank you so much!


  • layover time and assistance
    Feb 28, 2015
    I am flyig in from Milwaukee to Dallas and then to Tuscon. We arrive @ Dallas 8:55 and flight to Tuscon leaves @ 9:45. Will we have enough time to make the transfer. Also when we get off the plane is there assistance there if needed. I am traveling with my 89 yr old Mom. She still gets around good but I am just wondering about this.


    Yes, that is enough time. The SkyTrain connects all terminals inside security. I don't know what type of assistance you're asking about.


  • Syd-DFW-MKE
    Feb 27, 2015
    Hi, I am arriving in Dallas on a Qantas flight on Sunday 8th of March at 1:45pm from Sydney. I have a connecting flight to MKE 90 minutes latter. Is this possible? What are the crowds like on Sunday afternoons in March. First time visitor. Thank you


    It's possible but it's certainly pushing it. People have reported that the immigration lines at DFW are getting pretty bad. You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security then take the skylink train to your departure terminal.


  • Cozumel to Denver
    Feb 24, 2015
    We are looking at a flight on AA from Cozumel on May 30th that arrives in DFW at 3:37 pm with a connecting flight to Denver leaving at 5:05pm. Is that possible or should we book the later flight that doesn't leave for Denver until 8:25 pm?


    Below 90 minutes might be possible, but reports lately are that DFW immigration has gotten pretty crowded and you will be arriving at a crowded part of the day. I would probably book the later flight even though it means a long layover in Denver.


  • Is a 50 minute layover enough for CMH-DFW-Doha
    Feb 24, 2015
    Due to a change of schedule by AA as well as Qatar Airways, our itinerary has a stopover of only 50 minutes at DFW. Arrival 5:50pm by AA (terminal A?) from CMH and departure at 6:40 pm by Qatar Airwways (Terminal D). Doea this give us enough time to catch the Qatar Airways flight assuming the first flight is on time? Tahnks for your advice..


    That is still enough time but it depends on your columbus flight being on-time. the SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security.


    Thanks. I made the reservations on one travel.com. I called Qatar Airways and was told that we were allowed to change the first leg to an earlier flight, but one travel.com refuses to do it. They gladly offered to cancel my reservations with a hefty penalty, even though I tried to explain to them that the airline issuing the ticket does not have any problem.


  • Immigration if not staying in US?
    Mar 10, 2015
    If I fly in From London on BA, then out again to Puerto Vallarta on AA, do I need to clear US Customs & Immigration? Thanks.


    Yes, you will need to go through US Immigration and Customs and security but you should not have to claim your bags as you are on an International to International connection, but please confirm with the agents in London and DFW.


    I am flying from LAX to San Antonio Tx with a Layover in Dallas Tx. I will arrive at 6:08am to Dallas and will depart to San Antonio Tx at 6:59am (51mins) is that enough time ? Upon arriving at Dallas it says Terminal 0 but Ive looked over the terminals in Dallas Tx & there's no such thing. This is my first time flying, I don't want to get lost or even worse miss my flight. Any feed back is appreciated in advance
