  • connection time
    Dec 17, 2014
    I will be coming from Richmond Virginia and with a connection to Orange County, CA (SNA). My connection time is only 40 minutes. Will I make it? Will a checked bag make it? The flight is a month from now. Don't know terminals and gates yet.


    That should be enough time, but obviously leaves very little to spare in case of delays.


  • Layover time

    Is 62 minutes enough time to make my connection from LEX Bluegrass thru DFW to Incheon Seoul, Korea?


    Yes, it should be enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all terminals inside security.


  • FRA to SJO via DFW Connection Time 1:10 hours
    Dec 11, 2014
    (Jan. 17th, 2015): Frankurt to san Jose, Costa Rica - American Airline #71 arriving in Dallas at 15:05 - departure to San José flight #2442 at 16:15 with only 70 mins connection Time, all Terminal D. Will I make it, what could I to do make it? Thanks Markus


    It will be difficult but it's possible. Since you're on an International to International itinerary, you should not have to claim your baggage before going to though customs, but confirm that with the AA agents in FRA and DFW. You will have to hurry.


  • Connection

    I am arriving from Tampa at 2:46 pm and departing for New Orleans at 3:26 pm. Is a 40 min connection enough time? A few days later I am then arriving from New Orleans at 7:49am and departing DFW at 8:40am to Albuquerque, is this enough time?


    Your first connection is barely enough time and your second connection should be enough time as well. The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security. Obviously neither connection leaves a whole lot of time to spare in case of delays.


  • DFW to SGF with 1 hr
    Dec 9, 2014
    On Thursday I'm flying from BNA to DFW and then from DFW to SGF. My flight from BNA is scheduled to land at DFW at 3:25 and my flight to SGF is schedueled to leave at 4:25 leaving me only one hour to make my connection. Will I be able to make it?


    Yes, that is enough time. if you have to change terminals, the SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security.


  • DFW to DSM 3 hr layover
    Dec 8, 2014
    hi so I will be getting to DFW from heathrow at around 5pm December 12 and my next flight to Des Moines leaves at around 8pm (I have a 3hr layover) will that be enough time to get through customs and security and everything without missing my flight to DSM? and also do you sort visa things at customs as well? and would I need to re check my bags at DFW if it's all on American Airlines? thanks


    Yes, that will be plenty of time. You will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration (you will need to get your Visa before you depart if you do not hold a passport of a visa waiver country, you will need to complete ESTA if you have a visa-waiver passport), then claim your bags, then go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk. Then you will go up to the departure level and through security, then take the SkyLink train to your departure terminal.


  • PUJ to DFW via MIA Connection
    Dec 8, 2014
    I am flying to DFW from Punta Cana, DR with a connection in Miami. Where will I go through customs. I arrive into DFW at 8.37pm and am getting another flight on a separate ticker at 9.58pm. Both flights are AA, will I have time to make it???


    You will go through US Immigration and customs in Miami. You have enough time for your connection in DFW.


    Even if it is a separate ticket but with AA as well. Will I need to pick up my bags and re check in?


    Show all your AA confirmations to the agent in Punta Cana to have your bags tagged to your final destination. However, when you clear US Immigration in Miami, you will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs, then re-check them at the transfer desk there.


    Thanks for your help, ZAP!


  • Connection time

    Arriving at dallas fw with 23 minutes to board BA flight to Heathrow. Is this enough time


    It will be very difficult if you do not arrive in Terminal D.


  • 45 min. layover on AA from Aspen departing Bloomington
    Dec 7, 2014
    Is 45 min enough time between a flight arriving from Aspen (ASE) and departing Bloomington, IL (BMI) in June


    I at least need to know if the AA flights from Aspen and to Bloomington will be in the same terminal. Thanks!


    Both flights should be in Terminal B, but even if they're not the Skylink train connects all terminals inside security and you have enough time even if you have to change terminals.

    I will fly from CAE to DFW on AA Flight 2509 and then take AA Flight 0127 to PVG. 2509 will arrive at DFW at 9:45 am ad 0127 will take off at 10:45 am. I have nevered transferred at Dallas before. My major concern is whether the layover is long enough? Will I be able to catch Flight 0127?Will my luggage be able to follow up? thank you


    1 hr should be enough time. You will arrive in terminal B and depart from Terminal D. The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security.


    Thank you, ZAP. I just received an email telling me the 0127 flight will leave at 10:30, which shortens my layover to 45 mins. So my question is will 45 mins be enough? Is 45 mins enough for the luggage to be transferred from an domestic plane to an international one? Thanks again, I appreciate your help.


    Yes, it's still enough time but it obviously doesn't leave much to spare.

    Thanks for the info Zap


  • Domestic to international flight connection time
    Dec 3, 2014
    I want to book a domestic flight connecting to an international flight in Dallas. I do not know the terminals of each. There is only 1 hr 12 mins between arrival and departure. Is that enough time, It is in the morning presumably before delays . Will I have to go through security again because it is an international flight? As this seems to be a once daily flight to PVG, I would be stuck if I missed the connection.


    No, you won't have to go through security. The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security. Your PVG flight will depart from Terminal D.


  • Like everyone else, will I make it?!
    Dec 3, 2014
    I'm flying into Dallas tomorrow from Los Angeles, landing at 6pm in terminal A.. My connection flight to ft. Lauderdale leaves at 645, what's the best route to getting to terminal C from terminal A? And is that enough time?


    The Skytrain connects all terminals inside security. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • Abu Dhabi - DFW
    Dec 3, 2014
    I have a flight from Abu Dhabi via DFW. Will I have enough time if my layover is one hour and 55 minutes? I am a greencard holder.


    Yes, Abu Dhabi has us immigration preclear acne, so you will have plenty of time.


    Thanks, what is immigration preclear acne?


    Thanks for the info. Would I need to transfer my bags in Dallas or will they get routed automatically to my final destination?


    Sorry, I meant Immigration preclearance. It means you will go through US Immigration and Customs in Abu Dhabi. If you purchased your tickets together you will not have to do anything with your bags in DFW.


  • Enough time?
    Dec 2, 2014
    I'm flying in on American Airlines and have a connection to SJD Los Cabos. The layover is one hour and 25 minutes. Is that enough time?


    Assuming your first flight is domestic, that is plenty of time. You will take the Skylink train, which runs inside security, from your arrival terminal to terminal D where your flight to Cabo will depart.
