    I am flying from Cabo with a connection at DFW. We are scheduled to arrive at 11:58 am with a departure at 1:50 pm. The last time through DFW in November it took 2.5 hours to get through customs. Is two hours enough presently.

     

    It should be enough time.

    Hey I am flying from Birmingham , Alabama to Dallas by American Airlines and I have to Doha by Qatar airways , how I have to get my boardingpass for Qatar airways at Dallas ? I have to go out to at counter of Qatar and get boarding pass and again ihave to do security check in?

     

    If both tickets are on the same reservation then American should be able to issue your Qatar boarding pass in Birmingham and all you have to do in DFW is take the skylink train to terminal D.

    Hi! Im flying from London to DFW. From Dallas I need to take a plane to go to Jackson, MS. I have 2 hours between my flights. Do you think is it enough ? If I miss my flight can I get in an other plane to Jackson ? Cause I must be there the next day. Thanks for your answer.

     

    In DFW you will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and take the Skylink train to your departure gate. You should have enough time if your flight from London is on-time.

    Are there GOES machines at DFW?

     

    DFW has Global Entry if that's what you're asking. GOES is the system where you maintain your Global Entry account.

     

    Thanks, I did mean global entry which I have

    Yes, in DFW you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and take the Skylink train to your departure gate.

    Hi, my wife and 2 small kids are planning on travelling from DOHA to DFW ( Qatar Airways) and they would have a 1 hr 40 min connection in DFW to proceed to their final destination in YVR (Vancouver) via American Airlines. Do you think there would be enough time for them to make the transit in DFW? I need to decide on the ticket in that case. Thanks

     

    That is barely enough time.

    Hello, I will arrive in DFW at 5:20 AM via American Airlines and I have a connecting flight to SFO at 7:30 AM via United Airlines. It that enough time? How should I proceed there?

     

    Seeing that REC and DFW have no direct flights, I assume you are connecting at MIA or another domestic airport? If this is the case and your American and United airlines ticket were booked on the SAME reservation, then all you need to do is ride the skylink train to Terminal E, no need to leave security. If they are booked on DIFFERENT reservations, you need to exit the secured area and claim any checked luggage and ride the Terminal Link Bus to Terminal E where you will check in with United. Please clarify your routing out of REC

     

    disregard didnt see previous post

    There is no nonstop AA flight from Recife to DFW. Are you connecting somewhere else first. 2 hours is barely enough time to make an international to domestic connection through two different terminals on two different tickets. If you are on an International arrival into DFW, you will arrive in Terminal D where you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags and go through US Customs, then you will have to take a shuttle bus to Terminal E and re-check your bags with United and go through security.

     

    Yes. I have a previous connection at GRU. So, I guess that I will have to run.

     

    Btw, I bought the trip as a single ticket trough Priceline. I have a single e-ticket number.

    OK, in that case if your bags are checked through to SFO you can re-check them at the re-check desk in Terminal D after customs and if you have your United boarding pass you can go through security in Terminal D and then take the Skylink train to Terminal E, which is much faster than taking the shuttle bus.

    Hello. I'm flying from London to Puerto Vallarta via a connection in Dallas. Both flights are American Airlines. I have 2.5 hours time to take the flight from the same terminal to which we arrive. Is it enough time? And will our baggage go straight through?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Since you are on an International to International connection you should not have to claim your bags but you will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security.

     

  • ELP-DFW-LHR. Is 1 hour 10 minutes in DFW enough?

    Hi, I will be landing at DFW (from ELP) with AA at 14:35, and leaving to LHR from terminal D at 15:45 - giving me only 1 hour 10minutes. I will travel with ESTA, I have a checked baggage an I am EU citizen. Is that enough time to do everything I need to? Thank you!

     

    There is no US Customs when exiting the US. All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security. You have enough time.

    My daughter is flying from Sydney on Quantas (7308) to BWI on American 2361. She has been told she must pick her bags in a transfer location... where is that and does she need to check in again?

     

    You don't have to ask the same question twice.

     

    Please collect your Check-in Luggage's and come out, Within few way you will find a RECHECK section where there will be some guys collect the check luggage's (Baggages). They will transfer it to the next airlines so that you can collect it in the final destination without worries

    I'm flying from Hamburg, Germany, through London Heathrow, layover in DFW then on to Albuquerque. I have 2h20m to get to my flight to ABQ. Is that enough time? I'm a german citizen so would need to go through immigration.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. In DFW you will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and take the Skylink train to your departure gate, which will likely be in a different terminal.

    coming from Calgary to DFW with 55 minute layover to next connection. Is this enough time to go through customs

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary. All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all terminals inside security. You should have enough time.

    Hi, I'm flying from London into Dallas and then onto Wichita. I have a 1 hour 35 minute connection time at Dallas, I'm worried that this is not enough time! All my flights were booked together through one airline although the airlines are different, code share I think! What will I have to do in that connection time? Is there a buffer on the arrival time? Will it land earlier than the stated time? Thanks in advance

     

    You will arrive, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and take the Skylink train to your departure terminal and gate. You barely have enough time if everything goes smoothly, but AA does have other flights to Wichita if you miss your connection.

    I have a flight landing in Dallas from San Francisco at 4:15 (the flight time was just changed from 2:30 by the airline) It's landing in Terminal E, I have a connecting flight with British Airways to London Heathrow at 6:05 which now gives me only 1 hour and 50 minutes to collect a bag, get to Terminal D re check my bag, get through customs etc. Is this going to be enough time?

     

    There is no US Customs when exiting the US. However, you have to take a shuttle bus outside security between terminals. You barely have enough time if your flight from SFO is on-time, your bags come out quickly, and you get lucky with the shuttle. I really wouldn't have booked this.

     

    Actually, now that I read again that it was a schedule change, call the first airline and ask for a refund or an earlier flight, you should be granted it because of the long involuntary schedule change. If you get a refund then book an earlier flight SFO-DFW.

     

    Thanks, will do
