Hello, I left my ASUS tablet on the seat back of AA 294 arriving from El Paso to DFW 10pm Gate C15 20 Jun 14. Went back the 21st and they checked the plane not there. Cleaning crew must have found it. GRAY ASUS pad in a brown case all my school work is there. Left message with AA lost and found Please contact Rey Caraballo 254 449-1748 rey.caraballo@us.army.mil Thank You!
No, I don't think that is enough time. You will need to find an earlier flight. Also delays of inbound domestic flights are very common at JFK and especially during the summer.

Hi landing DFW 19:10 ex LHR. DFW to MCO following day 07:40. Staying overnight at the Grand Hyatt. After I have done C&I can I re-check the bags (it is a through ticket despite the layover) ? Colleague said there was a 12 hour max connection re-check time. Is that from landing in which case I will be over, or from re-check time ?
Would you recommend re-checking or taking with me to Hotel. Time will be tight in the morning and prefer to re-check but not sure if bags will be secure / follow us to MCO. Advice welcome :-)
Did you find out what you need to do as I have the same question?
I'm flying back from Cozumel with a 2 hour layover in DFW, will that be enough time to make my connecting flight to LAX? I'll arrive DFW at 8PM on Sun, Jul 6th and I'm concerned since it's a holiday weekend (although late evening) that 2 hours may not be enough time?
On arrival at DFW you need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance, then re-check-n your bags & get to your connecting domestic terminal. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/ then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.
Hi I'm going to DALLAS FT WORTH from Chicago Ohare soon! I'm going to Mexico! I have the layover at Dallas and I only have 30 minutes to get to my next flight to take me to Mexico. My first question is if anyone can assist me to get to my other terminal when I land in Dallas. First time traveling by myself and I only have 30 minutes to catch my flight! Pretty stressful! I know they can help you if you're a kid but I'm 18! My second question is if I have to pick up my luggage after I arrive to Dallas? My final question is if I could tell anyone in the airplane while heading to Dallas to help me get to my next flight because I only have 30 minutes to catch my flight!!! Someone please help!
You won't have to do anything with your baggage in Dallas. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all terminals inside security. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.
Where do I meet an international arriving passenger in terminal D? This person speaks no English.
The exit of immigration on the arrivals level would be the best place.
my daughter will be travelling from London to wichita via dfw terminal d , after immigration ,she will then pick up her bags and then go through customs , where are the recheck desks after customs situated to check her bags to witchita ? are they clearly marked or does it involve a search ,she then has to go to terminal a , is this an easy process ? all help appreciated
They are clearly marked. Terminal D is a modern international terminal. She will need to check the monitors after her arrival for her exact departure terminal, as domestic AA flights use several terminals. To get to her departure gate she will go through security in Terminal D then take the SkyLink train, which runs inside security, to her departure terminal and gate.
I'm flying into DFW from London and am concerned about having to stand in a queue at passport control for 2 hours. I can't stand up that long. I'm considering getting wheelchair assistance - but does that mean I just sit in a wheelchair in a queue for two hours getting stared at/commented on by tired brats?
DFW immigration queues are rarely if ever that long. When you have wheelchair assistance they usually take you to an expedited lane so that the employee pushing you doesn't have to waste all his time standing in line.
What international flights do not have to go through customs when they land at DFW Airport?
Flights from Canadian locations with pre-clearance (Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Halifax - although not all these places have flights to DFW). There are also some airports in the Caribbean and Ireland that have pre-clearance, but none of these places have flights to DFW either. So, every non-Canadian international flight into DFW has to go through US Immigration and customs.
I'm taking a round trip from Minneapolis to Sau Paulo that stops through DFW on American Airlines. On the return trip after going through customs in Dallas, can I take my checked bag with me during the layover, and check it back in later?
