I have a 1h 48m window in which to make the Finnair/AA flight to LHR. I will have 1 checked in suitcase. Will I have enough time to make my connection?

Thanks very much

Yes, that should be just enough time. You will go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security but won't have to claim your bags, both flights are in Terminal D.
I'm arriving from the uk and have to transit through DFW to connect a flight to Corpus Christi. Do I have to reclaim my luggage and recheck it in ?
Thanks Robert
Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and take the Skylink train to your departure gate in Terminal B.
Flying through DFW on Saturday, I have an hour and 10 minutes to get from Terminal A to Terminal B (both flights through American Airlines). I won't have a checked bag but I will have a carry on. Is that enough time? And any tips on the best way to get from A to B quickly?
Yes, that is enough time. Take the Skylink train.
Sorry, American from OKC to DFW lands at 6:10am Spirit flight leaves DFW at 8:08am will i have enought time to catch Spirit flight.
That should be enough time if the first flight is on-time. And yes, you will have to claim your bag, take the shuttle to Terminal E, re-check it with Spirit, and go through security.
I have two reservations, first one coming from OKC to DFW on Spirit and then from DFW to LGA on American. Will I have to recheck my bag and will I have enough time to make my flight.
Yes, you will have to claim your bags, take the shuttle bus to your departure terminal, re-check your bag with American and go through security. I don't know how much time you have so I don't know if you have enough time.
Also, Spirit doesn't fly to Oklahoma City so I suspect you listed your airlines in reverse order.
My grandchildren are flying to Dfw they now are scheduled to land at terminal c gate c7 at 11:11 am but have to go to terminalB gate 33 their flight leaves at 12:15pm is if far to terminal c gate 33 will they have time to get there before next flight leaves? Thank you. Worried grandma
That is enough time. All they have to do is take the Skylink train between gates which should take less than 15 minutes.
I'll be traveling by myself for the first time ever and I'm really getting anxiety!! I'll be flying American Airlines from Omaha to DFW then to Honolulu. It's was all made under one reservation. Will I have to catch any trolley to the next gate?
You will take the Skylink train from your arrival gate to your departure gate if they're not in the same terminal.
We are flying into DFW from Evansville, Indiana. Our flight times have changed. We are to arrive at DFW at 9:45 a.m. and our connecting flight to Seattle, Washington leaves at 10:25 a.m. We do not have gate info yet. Will we be able to catch our connecting flight in time?
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security.
I will arrive at gate A8 and my connection is at gate B44. Can I walk from my arrival at gate A8 to gate B44 or do I have to take the train ?
Take the train. It is much faster.
Hi, I'm flying with British Airlines, operated by AA, to Vancouver, Canada from Amsterdam, Netherlands and I have 2h 12 min to transfer in Dallas. Is that enough time? Do I need to collect and re-check my bags? Also as far as I understand I will have to go though US Immigration, Customs and Security, or are there more steps in between? Thanks!
You will not have to claim and re-check your bags because it is an international to international connection over DFW all on AA.
