I'm flying AA from BNA to DFW, with a 40 minute window to catch an AA flight to SNA. It looks like the arrival terminal could be C and the departure could be A. Am I cutting it too close?
It's possible if the first flight is on-time. The skylink train connects all gates inside security. However, it leaves no time to spare.
Thank you for your input. Your response has been my experience at DFW, but I thought I'd ask just in case you said absolutely don't do it. Fingers crossed!
We are arriving to DFW from Sydney at 1pm connecting to Tulsa 2.35pm, is this enough time to get through customs and to AA flight?
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I have AA flight from XNA to DFW on 20th with 1 hr layover to international flight Etihad ,is that enough time ? I don’t know the arrival terminal at DFW and How to go terminal D for Etihad airlines.
That is enough time. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate if both flights are on the same reservation.
I will arrive at DFW at 8:30 pm with a 2 hour layover. Is this enough time to go through customs and get to my next flight?

Flying in from Jamaica. Yes, both flights are on American
From Jamaica to DFW and on to Austin
Departing Tulsa connecting DFW to SJD Cabo. Do I have to recheck my lugggage at DFW or any customs
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in DFW on your way to Cabo is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security.
I have an American Airlines flight from Toronto (YYZ) to San Francisco (SFO) with a 1h 20m layover in DFW. My first flight says "Baggage: D16" so I'm assuming I have to pick up my luggage in between flights. My second flight boards at gate A16.

Where am I supposed to drop off my luggage and will this be enough time if I have to pickup/dropoff my luggage?
You do not have to pickup your bags between flights. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the Skylink train.
Thanks for the reply ZAP!
