I'm flying into Dallas from Seoul. I have a layover in Dallas. Do I have to go through security check again? I'm purchasing items from duty free, so I want to make sure. Thanks
Yes, after you clear customs, you will have to go through security to access your departure gate. So any duty free liquor will have to be put in your checked baggage before re-checking it.
I have a 1 hour and 44 minutes layover arrive terminal A departs terminal D connnecting flight to korea i was wondering if i could make it on time and about my baggage.
Yes, all you have to do is take the Skylink train from your arrival gate to your departure gate if your bags are checked through. You should have plenty of time.
I am arriving into DFW from at 9.30am and leaving for London at 6.40pm. Both flights are on AA on one ticket so I am assuming I won’t be seeing my hold baggage in Dallas. As nice as the Centurion Lounge is I don’t really fancy spending all day there. My plan is to get an Uber or Lyft to Southlake Town sq browse at Barnes and Noble then take in a movie before getting a car back to the airport. Is this a sensible plan?
Flight into Dallas is domestic from Fargo
Yes, that makes sense.
I arrive at 1 am, and depart at 8 am. Can I stay inside the airport, and not leave security?
One more question....will I need to collect my checked luggage at 1 am, and recheck for my departure at 8 am?

Thank you.
I have a 4 hour layover arrive terminal A departs terminal C. My friend is meeting me for a quick visit. Where is the easiest place for us to meet?
Probably one of the outside security areas in Terminal A. However, it's not like the outside-security areas of the DFW terminals have a whole lot of amenities.
Flying from New Zealand to Mexico via DFW with QANTAS is _ 1 and half hour layover enough time to get through US customs?
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Hi. My flight arrives at DFW at 9.30 am and leaves at 5.30 pm - an 8 hr layover.
Is that enough time to exit the airport, go see the Kimbell Museum and get back to the airport and go through security? Thanks.
Yes, that should be enough time.
Hi , I'm flying from Heathrow london on American airline on the 15/08/17 to DFW will land at 19:25 and I have a connecting flight to Lubbock at 22:10,?

We are traveling to Memphis from Australia with Qantas and American Airline will we have to claim our baggage and re check it back in or will it be in transit to Memphis thank you
Yes, in DFW you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate on the Skylink train.
If I am flying american from london and have a connecting flight on american to new mexico will i need to go through security again after customs? trying to decide best airport to travel through.
Yes, you will have to go through Security after clearing customs at EVERY US airport.
