We are flying American from DCA to DFW and arriving at 7:53 AM. Our connecting flight to SJD (Mexico) departs at 9:10 AM. Not sure what terminal we will arrive at. I am assuming all international flights depart from Terminal D. Do we have enough time to make the connection?
You will arrive in A, C, or D and depart from D. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
my wallet was stolen including driver license & ss card. I have a paper license issued but my flight is this week. Will I be able to fly out of DFW? Original birth certificate or certified copy ok?
Yes, bring your temporary license and birth certificate and if you have something with your picture on it like a work ID or student ID, that wouldn't be a bad idea either.
We fly from Brussels to London, from London to Dallas and from Dallas to Guatemala City, all AA flights. We have 2.00 hours in Dallas. is that enough time and do we have to claim and re-check our baggage?
Yes, that should be just enough time. Since you are on an International to International connection all on AA at DFW, you will go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security, but you won't have to claim and re-check your bags.
where will we go through customs for trip from stl to DFW to shanghai?
You will go through Chinese immigration and customs in Shanghai. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
My family and I will be travelling from MEM to Cancun with a connecting flight in DFW. Will we need to claim and recheck our bags for our connecting flight to Cancun at DFW?
No, assuming both flights are on American you won't have to claim your bags in DFW on the way to cancun. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.
I will be departing DFW for Sydney QF?, Once through security at Terminal D, is there anywhere I can smoke. ? thank you.
DFW does not have any designated smoking areas inside security.
I am in Waco waiting to board to Dallas at 645. I have been told that the airport has shut down. Will this affect my fight to El Paso at 750.

There is no 7:50 PM flight to El Paso. Do you mean the 8:20 flight? As of right now it has no posted delay. No clue when your flight from Waco will actually get to DFW though.
Good morning! I'll be arriving at 07:25 am to DFW and leaving to paris from DFW same day at 05:15 pm. Would it be reasonable to go a mall nearby to buy some stuff? Or time would be too tight??
That should be enough time to shop. Northeast Mall is anchored by Nordstroms. Has many nice shops. Utilize Yelp and Google for more ideas.
I'm flying into DFW from Cabo San Lucas and only have 90 min to make connection. Not checking a bag so will that be enough time to go through customs and make it to gate f?
It's just enough time if everything goes smoothly. Also, DFW does not have a "Gate F". What airlines are you flying?
Arriving from Cancun to Dallas FW at 5 pm - AA and connect to a flight to Sydney 8.00 pm ( 3 hours )
Do I go through customs or do I go through a transit lounge
Is 3 Hours sufficient for US airport processing /

Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security. You have enough time.
