Dallas Fort Worth Airport's Terminal Layout; 'Getting Around'; International Arrivals /Transfers; Terminal Details, Airline & AirportLounges, and Other Services Inside the Terminals:

The passenger terminal complex at Dallas-Fort Worth International consists of five terminals - TA through TE - divided by their respective 
International Parkways:  TA, TC & TE are to the east, TB & T3 are to the west.  All Terminals are connected by the high-speed Skylink train, running inside security and taking an average of 5 mins.  Each of the five terminals, together with their parking facility, form a half circle, with the parking area facing the one-way roads of the Inernational Parkway in the center.  Terminals A & B face each other - connected by a walkway, as well as terminals C & D (Terminal D has actually a square layout). Terminal E is south of Terminal C, but is not connected by walkway to the other terminals.
    Passenger Paging telephone numbers: for TA & TC: 972-4252480;  for TB, TD & TE: 972-973-3112.
    Free AT&T Wi-Fi Hotspots are located throughout the Terminal.
    Locations are stated by letters & numbers:  A9 = Terminal A, area 9.
DFW is making considerable improvements & changes for some time to come - see YouTube site at https://www.youtube.com/user/DFWIntlAirport/videos.

Getting around: This section offers transfer options within terminals, how to proceed if arriving at the new Airport Station, & available 'Minute Suites' to rest:
    To get from one terminal to the other you have two options:
    (a) The free Skylink train runs inside the post-security area
of each of the five terminals, starting at the International Terminal D at gates D1-22 & D23-40, and connects to the other terminals by two Skylink stations each (close to the left and right end). It runs every 2 mins and takes an average of 5 mins for transfer. Terminals A, B, C & E Skylink stations are between gates A9-A21& A22-A39, B1-B19 & B20-B39, C12-C15 & C24-C27, and E2-15 & E16-E38.
    (b) Alternatively, free 'Terminal Link' blue & green accessible vans transfer passengers every 10 mins outside of the terminals' baggage claim, 5am-midnight, thereafter call 972-574-5465.
    (c) Nearest pick-up/drop-off areas at terminals are beween: A15-16 & A25-26; B12-13 & B27-28; C12-15 & C24-27; D17 & D24; E9-13 & E18-21.
   Passengers arriving at the new DFW Airport Station:  Walk to Terminal A (a 3-minute walk) - enter the ticketing hall if departing from TA; if not - you have the following options to connect to one of the other terminals:
   (a) Non-American Airline passengers with only carry-on bags may use a multi-airline kiosk (in elevator vestibule at TA) to check in for their flight.
   (b) Passengers of airlines other than American with bags to check in may use the Terminal Link shuttle bus outside to get to their connecting terminal.
    To rest /refresh between flights, DFW now offers at Terminal D, near gate D23, nine 'Minute Suites' with shower facilities (& Terminal A will have soon a second Minute Suites).
    International Arrivals/ Transfers: Unless you have gone through US customs clearance by participating airports, you need to go through passport check *,    retrieve checked bags*, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bags. The Skylink at post-security gets you to your connecting flight - or use the walkway between A, B, C & D gates (E gates are not connected by walkway).
The three new gates in the corridor connecting Terminals D & B are swing gates, enabling international passengers to proceed directly upstairs to the Customs Hall via newly opened 2-level corridor between TD & TB.

Aside from  Global Entry & TSA Pre-Check - the following three additions have been speeding up the process considerably:
  - Currently over 70 percent of international arrivals (US citizens & green-card holders, Canadians, citizens of Visa waiver countries),  will use the 51 APC's (automated passport control) processing machines).
'carry-on bags only' passengers may use the'Carry E-Z' green lines in the International Arrivals Hall.
  - CBP baggage claim expanded to 13 positions, and the Terminal D22 checkpoint is adding 2 more lanes.

- Free WiFi
access is available in all 5 terminals;
- TSA Pre-Check
