  • Austin to Dfw then Dfw to Jackson Hole, Wy
    Sep 1, 2016
    Current groun stop in Austin…will I miss connection to Jackson Hole from Dfw? Is ther later flight?


    the 6:40 PM flight to Jackson Hole is the last one and it is currently on-time. You will be spending the night in Dallas (unless you can get off your Austin flight and spend the night there instead).


  • What is the process
    Sep 1, 2016
    Hi, I am arriving in dallas from heathrow at 1555pm I have a connecting flight to monterrey mexico at 1845. I have never flown before and wanted to know the process. Do I need to get bags from carousel or will these be swapped onto next plane? Where do I head after getting off the plane? is there a connection area for transferring flights or do you have to go to front check in desk again? Any help and info welcome thanks Tom


    Since you are on an International to International connection, if both flights are on American then you just go through US Immigration, US Customs, and then security and to your departure gate - you will arrive in Terminal D and depart from Terminal B. The skylink train connects the terminal after you go through security. You have enough time.


  • Enought Time?
    Sep 1, 2016
    I'm flying from Charlotte-Douglas Intl. (CLT) to Sydney (Australia) with a connecting stopover in Dallas of just 55 mins. Will this be enough time? I'm unsure if I would be going through immigration at Charlotte or Dallas?


    Yes, that is enough time. There is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security. You go through Australian immigration and customs when you get to Sydney.

    I'm flying from Cancun to JAX with a connection in DFW, scheduled, time between flights is 1.35h, is this enough to make it through customs and get to the next gate, i'm travelling without checked bags, only carry-on.


    That is barely enough time. Not having checked bags helps.

    I'm flying from Toronto to Seoul with a transfer in Dallas for 55 minutes .. Is that enough time? Do I need to recheck my baggage? Flight number leaving Toronto is AA1259 and then AA281


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Dallas is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all gates and concourses inside security.

    I will be arriving from LHR on September 4 by AA51 at 1335, and connecting to AEX by AA3344 at 1625. Is this enough time? Where should I recheck my baggage for AA3344? Thanks.


    That should be plenty of time. You will re-check your bags at the re-check desk right after you clear customs.


    Thank you.


  • Should I Book this Flight?
    Aug 30, 2016
    Looking at RT flight to Hong Kong. Not sure if HKG to CVG with 2h 6m layover in DFW is enough time to clear customs? How much would it help if all passengers had global entry?


    Yes, that is just enough time. Global Entry would help quite a bit.


  • Domestic travel after tour
    Aug 29, 2016
    After a tour of Europe, we will be traveling FRA-DFW and clearing Customs. The tour ends in DFW and I made separate arrangements from DEN with a separate booking number. Since it is a totally separate flight, can I get my UA boarding pass and check my bags outside of Customs or do I need to haul all luggage to United flight check-in? I know that I will have to go through security again however I am wondering about the logistics of checking my bags after arrival at DFW. Is there a separate check-in desk for United outside of Customs? The bags cannot be checked from FRA to DEN since it is 2 separate bookings.


    You will need to take the shuttle bus to Terminal E to check your bags with United.


  • Is it enough time?

    Traveling from Vegas to Cancun with a connection in Dallas... 55 minutes between flights. Land in terminal C and fly from terminal D! Is that enough time (assuming no delays) and does our luggage get transfered automatically?


    Yes, your baggage will be transferred automatically. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Terminal D. The Skylink train connects all gates and terminals inside security. You have enough time.

    I need help. I'm flying from Fargo to DFW and then on to Tokyo. I have only an hour to transfer. I hope the luggage will be transferred automatically but I'm still very worried. Is it possible to make it?


    Yes, your baggage will be transferred automatically. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate in Terminal B to your departure gate in Terminal D. The Skylink train connects all gates and terminals inside security. You have enough time.


  • Is 2:40 enough time in DFW to go from international to domestic flight
    Aug 25, 2016
    Have a 2:40 layover coming in from Hong Kong at 4:15 and flying to Dulles at 6:55pm. Is the 2:40 layover enough time to go through immigration and so on? Thanks for any help.


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • Frankfurt - Dallas, Dallas - Vancouver
    Aug 24, 2016
    My flight from Frankfurt to Dallas is delayed, so I might have only one hour to get my connection to Vancouver. Will this be enough (I have checked luggage & am German national)


    both flight with American Airles


    That is unlikely to be enough time unless the flight to Vancouver is also delayed.

    Traveling from Shanghai to DFW and changing planes to Miami. No checked baggage. Do I need to go through security again because I want to buy some containers with liquids at the Shanghai Airport to carry with me to Miami


    Yes, you will have to go through security again in DFW. If you don't have checked bags to put it in you can NOT buy liquids to carry with you at the Shanghai duty free.

    I'm flying from Queretero to London Heathrow via Dallas - land in Dallas at 16:30 terminal B - flight to London is at 18:10 Terminal D. Will I have to clear US customs / immigration and collect my checked in baggage at DFW before my connecting flight and if yes - is 1h40mins enough time?


    Actually both flights will be in Terminal D. You will go through US Immigration and Customs and security but since you are on an International to International connection with both flights on AA then you don't have to claim and re-check your bags. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Connecting international flight
    Aug 22, 2016
    We return on a sat from Los cabos at 5:09pm connecting flight to Nashville at 6:29pm. Will that give me and my wife enough time for customs and to connect? Flights are on American Airlines . Thanks


    That's short of the minimum international to domestic connection time at DFW. That will be a very difficult connection.
