I am flying to from Des Moines to Cancun with a layover in DFW. Is 1 hour enough time for this layover? Do we need to go through customs since we are flying internationally?
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. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security. You have enough time if the flight from Des Moines is on-time.
From Toronto to Maui and layover in Dallas... is 1 h 30 min enough for catching our connection? AA is the airline. I don't believe we have to reclaim our checked luggage and go through custom again, right? Many Thanks!
Yes, that is plenty of time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security.
Hello, I will be flying Frankfurt, Germany to Dallas, and then have another flight to Minneapolis. Will I have to get my bags, go through immigration/customs, and recheck them? I'll be traveling alone with a small infant, so I am nervous about carrying bags/stroller/car seat and the baby. Any suggestions welcome!
Yes, in DFW you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security and then take the Skylink train to your departure gate. This assumes both flights are on American and are on the same reservation.
I arrive from Austin with a connection to Shanghai, all on American Airlines. I have a 1 hour 5 min. layover. Is that enough time for Immigration, Customs, and Security?
There is no US immigration or customs or special security when leaving the US. All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security. You have enough time.
