My elderly mother will be traveling with us from DFW to Albuquerque this evening. She will need wheelchair assistance. Should we call ahead to request that, or ask at the skycap or check in counter when we arrive?
Yes, call American to request it. They can call for it at the curb or at the check-in counter.

We are flying through Dallas from Costa Rica to MN and I along with our three children are US citizens but my wife and mother of the children is not. Can we all go through customs together in the US citizens line or must we all go to the non US citizen line. We want to pass customs together.
At the same time at the passport Kiosk do we have to enter each passport or just mine? If we have to enter all of our passports will the system allow the Costa Rica passport of my wife? Thank you!

My wife is moving back to the US after 2 years in Australia. She will be traveling with three children and potentially 3 pieces of luggage each. Is there a process or service, even at cost to me, whereas skycap type services can be provided. She will need help for sure and will probable scale down if nothing like this is available. Oh yea arriving into and needing to recheck for custome then through to Florida.
Thanks in advance.
There is no such service in the International baggage claim. There are carts available.
My daughter will be flying in at 1:15pm on July 23 from Europe. She has a flight at 425pm flying back out of DFW to IAH. Is that enough time to get luggage then thru customs...recheck luggage and get on the 425pm flight? Thanks
If both flights are on the same reservation yes that is enough time.
Does Terminal B have skycaps for checking luggage & wheelchair avaiable?
I'm traveling from FRA (Frankfurt) to DFW and only have 1 hour and 35 minutes for a layover before my flight for BOI (Boise). Is that enough time? Will I have to collect my bags and recheck them or will I collect my bags in Boise? I will be traveling alone with 2 young children and am worried about the very short connection. Thank you for your help!
Yes, you will have to claim your bags in Dallas, take them through customs, then re-check them. You have just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
