Hi, me and my GF flight from Argentina (south america) to Los Angeles, with a 2 hous stop in Dallas.

We MUST do custom/inmigrations, in DFW of course. We arrive in terminal D, and the connection flight departures in terminal A.

Would we be OK with this 2 hours?


Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hello, I have a connecting flight with only a 45 minute layover. Is there a way to figure out what terminal i'm coming in on and where i'm leaving out of on my ticket? I booked online and Iv'e looked but do not see anything as such. Also, It will be my first time flying through Dallas I have heard it extremely large and I am really nervous I will miss my connecting flight. Any tips?
What airline are you flying? AA uses Terminals A, B, C, and D at DFW and all gates at DFW are connected inside security by the Skylink train and you can reach any gate in 15 minutes.
Last minute thought...my flight is tomorrow morning. I am flying AA from Toronto to Dallas, a 1 1/2 hr layover then off to Tucson. Will I need to collect my checked bag at Dallas and re-check my bag?

Thanks in Advance!
As you probably know by now. You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto.
Looks like construction on Terminal B at DFW. with 35 minutes between flights, is it possible to get from gate B6 to gate B47?
Yes, that is possible if the first flight is on-time.
I'll fly from San Francisco to Madrid, Spain but have a stop on DFW arriving at 03:23PM my next flight is 04:40PM directly to Spain; Do I need to check out my luggage and check-in again and go through security or once I checked the luggage in SF, I do not have it again? Is there enough time?
All you have to do in DFW on your way to Madrid is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the Skylink train, nothing with your bags and no security. You have enough time.
I and my son will arrive DFW from NRT in AA176 flight at 8:00 at terminal D then will departure for PHX at 10:45 at terminal C with AA425 flight. Do we have enough time for all procedures and how should we do the quickest way (as we visit US for the 1st time). Thanks!
Yes, that should be enough time. Just follow instructions and move as quickly as you can.
Returning from PVR through DFW to DSM on 12-18. Is 1:45 enough connection time? My other option is 3:53 conneciton time.
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
My non-English speaker aunt will be flying from HKG - DFW on 1/30/2018 on AA 0126 arriving 4:10pm at terminal D, and then taking AA1261 to IAD leaving 6:25pm at terminal C. Will she have enough time to retrieve checked luggage & then rechecked in, take skylink, pass through security and get on the connecting flight? For AA, does she need to carry the reclaimed checked luggage from terminal D all the way to terminal C for recheck in? I never fly at/thru DFW, and can someone please tell me the procedure/steps for getting through, so that I can tell her in advance because she does not speak English. I am nervous for her in case she gets lost or misses the flight. Thanks a lot !!
She will go through US Immigration, claim her bags, go through US Customs, re-check her bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and take the Skylink to her departure gate. Re-check is right after she clears customs in Terminal D.
I am arriving on AA terminal B and need to get to terminal C for a connection flight and have about 35 minutes , do I have sufficient time
It's possible but leaves leaves no time to spare if the first flight is late. The Skylink train connects all Terminals inside security.
I need to know if I can make the connection in the 40 minutes allotted. I will be with three children, all over 10 yrs old.
Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes perfectly. The Skylink train connects all Terminals inside security.
