I am about to book my flights which involve an 11hr wait in DFW
do i need a travel visa? even if i don't leave the airport?
If you need a visa to enter the US you need a visa to transit the US, even if you don't plan on leaving the airport.
During layover, can I leave secured area and get back in with my ticket starting and ending in other cities? Will they let me back in?
You will need a boarding pass for a flight departing DFW that day to go through security.
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.
