    I haven't flewn through DFW in a couple of months. In the past, most of the Latin American flights were departing from Terminal D. Today, my flight to Mexico is leaving from Terminal A with quite a number of other flights to Latin America. Does anyone know why the reassignment of terminals? Thanks in advance!


  • Air Port Connection Between two airlines
    Mar 7, 2015
    First time in this airport? Coming in from Philadelphia on us airways then have to change to American Airlines taking me to my destination Colorado Springs CO. Do I have to recheck my bags because of it being a different airline? I will have approximately one hour lay over here, will I have enough time to make the connection between the airlines if what I am seeing that US Airways is terminal E and American Airlines is terminal A?

    Hi! We arrive at Terminal D from Heathrow at 05.05PM and depart from Terminal 0 (?) at 07.00PM to LAX. All flights operated by American-AA. We have to recheck baggage. is this enough time?


    DFW does not have a Terminal 0. Your flight will depart from Terminal A, C, or D. Yes, you should have enough time.


  • custom lines and time between connecting flights
    Jan 26, 2015
    Returned from Jamaica through Dallas last night with a flight connection two hours later. It took us one hour and fifty minutes to clear customs and clear security. Most of the time was waiting in line at customs. We would have messed our connecting flight but caught one of the golf cart rides. He gave us a wild ride and got us to our gate in 10 minutes. He said we would have missed it if we had taken the sky tram. Our luggage did not make it. I think I would allow a minimum of 2 1/2 hours when having to clear customs and preferably more. We have cleared Customs at Atlanta several times with 1/2 an hour between connections with no problem. I will avoid AA and Dallas when possible in the future. We encountered long lines the whole trip, messed a connecting flight on the way to Jamaica and was left stranded in Miami overnight where there was a three hour line of stranded AA people waiting for Room vouchers etc. Since our missed connection was because of mechanical reasons we had to stay in line to file a complaint for future reimbursement. the cheapest room we could find was $300 and all hotels that had shuttle service were full. very unsatified with American airlines


  • Time to allow for connection

    Arriving on Qantas at 1:45pm, go thru customs, get bags,etc...transfer to another terminal to check -in go thru security etc with American to fly to IAH departing at 4:25pm. American changed the flight times on there enough time to do all this?


    You will actually re-check your bags in Terminal D where you will arrive and then take the Skylink Train to your departure terminal. You have PLENTY of time.

    On November 5th between 8 and 9pm I lost my diamond wedding and engagement rings at DFW in Terminal D. Both white gold; wedding ring "eternity" style, engagement ring center diamond with two baguettes. Please contact me via this thread if you know anything about them. I'll pay appraised value for their return.


  • 45 min time frame for connecting flights enough?
    Sep 24, 2014
    Flying from Fort Myers, connecting in Dallas, to Calgary. Is 45 minutes enough time in Dallas to catch connecting flight? No baggage, only carryon.


    Yes, that should be enough time. The SkyLink train connects all Terminals inside security.

  • halp!

    American called & said they eliminated one of the flights we had and had to change all our flights - the new flights have us arriving from PVR to DFW at 1640 and then departing DFW to Hobby at 1740. The 1740 departure is now the last DFW to HOU flight. SO my question is - is an hour enough time to get through customs and get from terminal to terminal? Thanks in advance


    As an international arrival at DFW you need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance and re-check-in your bag where indicated. Thereafter board the SkyLink train (inside security) to your connecting terminal: AA uses domestic Terminals TA & TC, American Eagle TB. One hr seems to be cutting it extremely short. I suggest you open then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


    an hour probably isn't enough time. I would check if there is a later flight to IAH and if there is ask AA to rebook you there.


    Thanks Y'all - reluctantly I rebooked to IAH. Appreciate your help


  • stl to dfw to cancun 45 min connection
    Jan 15, 2014
    I have an American Airlines flight from St. Louis to Dallas fort Worth. At DFW Is 45 min enough time for my checked luggage and myself to make that connection to Cancun?


    If your first flight is on-time, you can make it if you hurry. The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security and all you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

  • Tranfer time inside Terminal D
    Jul 24, 2013
    We'll fly to Dallas airport Terminal D from Gualadajara (Mexico) with AA flight, and then taking a new flight to Madrid (Spain) on IB plane in same Terminal D. We have just 2 hours for transfer on 29th August 3pm : is that enough time ?, should we go trough Passport control ?.


    Yes, you will have to go through immigration. However, you should still have enough time. You will just go back through security in D once you exit US customs and drop your bag back off and then go to your next gate. Also note that Iberia does not fly to DFW. Your flight to Madrid will be operated by American.


    Thanks for info (actually we'll probably go with only hand luggage, so I hope even faster).


  • SYD-DFW-ATL in July, how much time will I need to get through security
    Jun 30, 2013
    I took this flight last year, in October, I had an hour and 45 minutes before my connecting flight to Atlanta, and missed my flight by 15 minutes all because of the line to get my boarding pass printed! THIS time, I have 2 hours and 45 minutes before I must be on my connecting flight, I am only going to have carry on luggage, but I can not have my boarding pass printed in advance, as its a flight from Australia, and I just wont be able to do it before I land. Unless Qantas will print them for me before I get on my flight in Sydney? I dont know.. Sorry if these questions are stupid.. but I just want some kind of hope that I will make it for my connecting flight to Atlanta. Being summer over there and coming off of a booked out flight, I doubt it :/


    Well, the extra hour will help and if your DFW-ATL flight is on American and on the same reservation QANTAS may be able to print your second boarding pass for you in Sydney. If you have a mobile phone that works in the US you can actually check in for your flight using that instead so you won't have to wait in a line.
