Flying from Sydney with a connection in DFW. 4 hour layover. Is this enough time to go through customs? Do I need to go to baggage claim to retrieve luggage, then through customs, back through security to my departing gate? Thanks for your help!
Yes, you have the procedure correct and yes, 4 hours is plenty of time.
I will arrive to DFW at 10:39am and suppose to leave 11:30 am to HKG, i have never been to DFW and i dont know gates and what i have to do. Please let me know if my transfer time is enough and how should i transfer. Thanks!
You will take the skylink train from your arrival terminal to terminal d where you will depart. It runs inside security. You have enough time if your first flight is on time.
I will be flying from Mexico to Toronto, connecting in Dallas (with Delta). I think my luggage will go right through, without me having to recheck it in Dallas. Does anyone know if that's correct?
Yes, the AA procedure is that on an international to international connection through Dallas you do not have to claim your bags. You will still have to go through US Immigration and security though.
Thank you so much for that helpful information!!
am travelling from chennai to san antonio > Chenai > London > dallas
or Chennai > frankfurt > Houston
do I need a transit visa in London, frankfurt , dalls or houston for proceeding to SAN ANTONIO.
Assuming you are an Indian citizen, you will need a visitor Visa for the United States. Not a transfer Visa. For both London or Frankfurt you will need a transfer visa from those respective countries.
Hello, I am traveling to Guatemala from Colorado, with a connection in DFW. Do I need to claim my bags in DFW and then recheck them, or do I go directly to my international departure gate?
You do not have to do anything with your bags when leaving the US. You can just go directly to your departure gate.
I am flying from Calgary, Canada to Miami, Florida, has a 10 hours layover in Dallas, will my luggage be sent from Calgary to Miami directly? Just wonder if I have to drag my luggage around until the next morning for a 5 am connecting flight? Is there a higher chance of my luggage of being lost if it sits in the airport for 10 hours to the next connecting flight? Thanks
You should be able to have your bags sent to Miami, but check with the agent in Calgary.
Hello. We are heading from Vancouver Canada go Dallas with a 50minute layover and connecting to Orlando. Both flights are American airlines. Is that enough time?
Yes, that should be enough time. you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver and in Dallas, the Skylink Train connects all terminals inside security.
Thanks!
If I am flying writhin the state of Texas, do I still need a passport?
You do not need a passport for any trip within the United States. However, you do need some sort of photo ID in order to get through security to board the aircraft.
On 09/26/14, I lost my iphone 4S which is in a dark pink case when flying from Austin to DFW Flt. #2230. I may have dropped it in the seat of 3F or 3E or when debarking the plane; or in the Ladies restroom. Please post a response if found.
I am coming to pick up a friend from DFW coming in from SYD on QF7 at 1:45. How long does customs take about this time of day based on other international flights coming in?
You should plan on picking him up about 45 minutes after his flight is scheduled to arrive.
