Hi there, we are arriving on a Qantas flight from Sydney at 13.00 and our connecting fights to San Jose (Costa Rica) with American Airlines is at 14.40 - is this enough time to make the connection? Our bags will be checked right through from Sydney to San Jose so we will just be in transit with hand baggage.
That's just enough time. You will still have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security.
Good day,

I am flying Qantas into Dallas from Sydney in July with my family. It lands around into Dallas Terminal D at 1 pm and my American Airlines connecting flight to New Orleans is at 5.05pm. The flights are not on the same ticket. I am a Qantas Platinum (one world Emerald). Is 4 hours enough? Qantas Phone customer service said I cannot check in the bags to New Orleans. Can you please let me know the security process, customs process, Departure terminal and any faster queue for one world emerald passenger in economy.
Yes, that is plenty of time. Qantas check in desk in Sydney should be able to tag your bag to New Orleans if you show your AA confirmation since both airlines are OneWorld partners. You will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the re-check desk if they are tagged to MSY, then go through security and take the Skylink train to your departure gate (which will likely be in Terminal A or C).
Thanks Zap
How much time should be allotted for clearing customs at Dallas-Fort Worth airport when returning from Mexico in order to make a connecting flight to Cleveland. Our return flight has changed and may result in a misconnect. It is my understanding that American Airlines requires an 80 minute window. Does anyone know if this is true?
90 minutes is a more accurate minimum International to Domestic connection time. If you have less than that, contact American or your Travel agent and reject the schedule change.
Tight connection, need to get from C12 to B44. I will take Skylink to TB, but where do I find Gate B44? Skylink goes to B31.
You get off at the B31 stop and walk to B44. It's not a long walk. Just follow the signs.
Arriving at terminal c from phl, we have 45 min for our connecting flight in terminal b to Mazatlán. How do we get to terminal b
You take the Skylink train. It connects all gates inside security.
Hello,

we are planning a trip home on the 14th April. Flying in from Salt Lake City (arrival time 17.36 ) to transfer to a flight to London Heathrow (depart 19.05 ). Is this 1hour 29 minute transfer time comfortable please ?

Thanks
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do on the way to London is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the Skylink train if both flights are on the same reservation.
I am arriving at DFW from london UK at 2:30 pm With British Airways at terminal D, with a connection to Kansas at 6:35 pm With American Airlines from Terminal C, How can I move from terminal D to terminal C with the luggage since I have to go through the Securiy check and collect my luggage in terminal D.
After you clear customs in Terminal D you can re-check your bags immediately after there. Then you can go through security in Terminal D and take the Skylink train to your departure gate in Terminal C.
We will be arriving at DFW from Jamaica at 8:25 pm with a connection to Austin at 10:35 pm. Both flights are on American Airlines. Will 2 hours be enough time to go through customs and get to our connecting flight to Austin?
Yes, that should be enough time.
Flying into DFW on AA, tomorrow (1/11/2018) form PHL. We have a 50 minute layover to catch a plane headed to Cabo (SJD). Will 50 be enough time? Both flights are on AA and booked on the same ticket, but we are wondering if we will have to go through security again because the second flight is international. We are also worried because we are seated on the back of the first plane. Please let me know.
Forgot to mention we are switching between terminal A and C, Thanks!
Yes, that is enough time. You don't have to go through security again. Just take the Skylink from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Can I walk from E to C just like C to A?
No, E is only connected to other terminals by the Skylink train.
