We are arriving TO DFW on American Airlines FROM Calgary Canada. We have 1 hour to make our connecting flight to STL- will that be long enough? Will we have 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 and gates inside security. You should have enough time.
We fly out of Sydney on Qantas to DFW, we have 86 mins to disembark go through customs and immigration and reboard our flight to Orlando. This is all on one ticket, our flight to Orlando was changed last month by my travel agent as the original dfw-orl flight was cancelled. She said American Airlines and Qantas have assured her it's enough time. I feel like it isn't. Is there a fast track process for people that are in this position?
That is less than the recommended minimum for an International to domestic connection at DFW. There is no fastrack for short connections at US Airports.
Return from Cabo connecting DFW is 2 hours 40 minutes enough time. Do we have to get luggage, go through immigration and customs and recheck bag the go to another terminal? Flying AA
Yes, that is enough time.
Thank you
We have visitor's visa, final destination is Atlanta. Our port of entry is DFW. Flying Etihad - landing 4:25pm Terminal D; our connection is on AA to Atlanta - leaving 6:45pm. Does AA leave from the same terminal? What does the immigration process involve? Do we have enough time to make connection?
Actually, your point of entry is Abu Dhabi. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Abu Dhabi. In DFW all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the Skylink train which connects all terminals and gates inside security. You will arrive in Terminal D and depart from A, C, or D.
Thank you very much for your help!!

Hello,we are a party of four flying to DFW via Las Vegas to connect a flight to Cancun.
I have a layover of 1 hour 45 mins, will that be enough time to clear any airport security and customs.
Will we have to collect our bags?
We all have British Passports.
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in DFW on your way to Cancun is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security.
I am arriving from Guadalajara Mexico and then onto New York I am traveling on American both flights. Do I have to collect my bags as well as go through immigration. Will I have to change terminals
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 to your departure gate on the Skylink train.
I fly from Cancun into Dallas and have a 1 hour 48 minute layover before catching a flight to Canada. I change terminals but not sure of the numbers. Is this sufficient time?
You will arrive, go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security and take the skylink train to your departure terminal. You have barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
hello, I'm flying with AA from Tokyo to Mexico City, with a layover of 1h45m in Dallas. I am european citizen. Do I need to collect my bags in Dallas and recheck them?
No, you won't have to claim and re-check your bags, but you will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security.
Thank you!
We are Flying from Toronto Canada to Dallas Fort Worth then onto Puerto Vallarta. Do we have to pick up a luggage and go through US customs in Dallas or will our Luggage Just go automatically through to Puerto Vallarta. As well do we pay Twice for luggage charges or only Once
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. If both flights are on American then all you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in DFW on the way to Puerto Vallarta.
