going from A38 to A5 with 20 minute layover....take skylink or walk?
You can do either. I would run.
I am arriving on a Qantas flight in terminal D and need to get to Terminal B for a AA flight to Aspen.
I presume I need to clear Customs. Do I go outside for bus or inside for train for transfer?
You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and take the Skylink train to your departure gate.
Do all domestic AA flights come through DFW? Flight from LAX arrives 2.58pm flight to MEMPHIS departs 4.45pm. Transfer time approx 1 3/4 hrs. Is this enough time for a young inexperiences flyer to transfer?
If you are connecting on AA in Dallas it will be in DFW. You will arrive in Terminal A or C and depart from Terminal A, B, or C. 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. You have enough time.
Thanks for that ZAP. Our teenage grandson is flying alone from Sydney to meet us in Memphis. We didn't want him to miss a fight and be stuck in Dallas.
Hi.. I ve a connecting flight which arrives at C12 and departs to Abu dhabi from D6. Is 1hour layover time is enough to get thro?
If both flights are on the same reservation that is enough time as all you have to do is take the Skylink train from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If it's two separate reservations that's not enough time.
so im travelling to mexico city via sydney, then DFW airport, im flying qantas then AA. i got told i don't have to check baggage in DFW airport. would 1h and 25minutes be enough time to connect?

thanks
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
I will be arriving at 4:45 pm to DFW airport in gate C12 but my next flight is on gate C37 at 5:30 pm (Boarding time 5 pm). Do you folks think I will have enought time and if so should I tale skylink or skywalk? Thanks
You said you have to go to D in the title but then posted a gate in C in the body. If it's all in C, walk. If it's in D, take the train.
Hi. Flying from U.K to Mexico City via DFW so only in transit. Do I need to collect baggage and clear US immigration or just go straight to next gate. Thanks
You have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and security, but don't have to claim your bags.
Going from terminal B gaye 8 to terms nal A gate 29. How long does it take? Is 30 min. Enough?
That is possible. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security.
We have 2 hours to catch our AA connecting flight from South Korea to Colorado Springs. Will we have to collect our luggage and re-check it in DFW? Both flights are AA. Is two hours enough time? Thank you.
Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate on the Skylink train.
My son's flight arrives at Gate C36 at 5:48 and his departure gate is A35. Departure flight starts boarding at 6:05 and departs at 6:35. Does he have time to make this connection?
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security.
