Hi. I will be landing at dfw terminal D from Mexico City on the 28th of October by AA in the evening at 1655. I have a Qatar Airways flight to Doha at 1830 from Terminal D. I hope I have enough time to catch my flight to Doha.
That is just enough time if everything goes perfectly and both flights are on the same reservation.
I have a flight connection with 3 guests. We are landing in terminal A gate 17 and only have 12 minutes till the 30 minute boarding time starts at our connecting flight in Terminal D Gate 17 . What is the fastest way for the 4 of us and do you foresee any problems?
The fastest way is to take the Skylink train. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
According to AA, flight 2397 departs tomorrow from Terminal 1, but I don't see that on a map. Where is it, and how do I get there from terminal C?
DFW doesn't have a Terminal 1. I don't know where you're seeing Terminal 1. Check AA.com tomorrow morning for the correct terminal.
I am arriving in DFW at gate C19 and depart 55 min later from B38. How do I get from C to B? Should I only use carryon due to short time?
You take the Skylink train. It connects all gates inside security. Carry on or checked bags don't matter. Either way you should have enough time.
Hello!

I am planning to purchase an American flight that would take me from ORD to DFW (hopefully landing at 5:50pm) and from DFW to EZE, Argentina (scheduled to take off at 7:05pm). American claims that 80% of the flights I picked from ORD to DFW do arrive on time.

Sadly, I would be flying mid-December, and I understand that weather may impact the departure time from O'Hare. I doubt I will be able to make it to O'Hare/Chicago in time to catch an earlier flight that would buy me some extra room for the stop at DFW - and the only way to play safer would be to fly through Miami, which I would rather not do.

As per previous responses, seems as if all I would need to do in DFW would be to walk from one terminal to another. All things considered, would you say that 75 minutes would suffice?

Thanks in advance for your support!
Yes, that would be enough time. Your flight could be up to 45 or 50 minutes late and you'd still have a decent chance of making the connection, and you know weather in mid-December usually isn't that bad.
I will take my chances and confirm the reservation, then. Many thanks, ZAP!
Hi, I am arriving from Denver in Terminal A and making an international connection to LHR out of Terminal D. All flights are American Airlines.

Can I check my bags all the way through to LHR from Denver? And is 90 minutes enough time to transfer?
Yes, your bags will be transferred for you. Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all terminals inside security.
I'm flying into DFW from denver; then leaving to Puerto Vallarta , MX. I know that I've done this before, but years ago. I'm flying first so would get off early. I have 49 minutes between flights and also know that I'll need to take the train to D as that's the international concourse - right? This is possible, don't you think? It's also a very early morning flight. thank you!
Yes, that's possible and you have the procedure correct.
Do I need to recheck my bags in DFW or is there a way to check them from AUS to DXB with separate tickets? If I need to recheck, what's the best way to change terminals? And, how much time is needed?
Yes, you will have to claim your bags, take a shuttle bus to Terminal D and re-check them with Emirates. I recommend at least 3 hours to do this.
Have 1 hour connection time in Dallas on outbound and return. Enough time to clear customs both directions?
You don't have to go through Customs in DFW EITHER way! There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You will go through Canadian Customs in Toronto. On the way back you pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do both ways is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
Thank you! We have global entry cards so I was pretty sure we would be okay on the return. Appreciate the quick response!
Would appreciate help me with my concern : How can I arrived at terminal D transit to terminal A for my connection flight ?
Where are you flying from and to? Are both flights on the same reservation?
Thanks for the reply. my flight from AUH EY161, connecting flight AA1393 separate booking.
Since you pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Abu Dhabi, all you have to do in DFW is claim your bags, re-check them with AA, then go through security and to your departure gate.
Appreciate your prompt reply.
