Heard that its possible to have the immigration kiosks print your connecting flight boarding pass.. is that true? or what is the process?
No, that's not true. There will be kiosks for AA right outside customs if you need an AA boarding pass.
Buenas tardes, cordial saludo. Viajo de Bogota a los angeles. Tengo conexion en dallas por american airlines. Me puede indicar que debo hacer? Cuales son los pasos a seguir?
when we land at DFW are our bags sent to the flight to Mexico or do we claim them at DFW then go to recheck them??
On your way to Cancun you don't have to do anything with your bags in DFW.
I have an hour between connecting flights and have a friend from the Dallas area that wants to meet in between flights. Where is the best place to meet that friend in the airport between connecting flights?
You don't have enough time.
I was wanting to do the same meet a friend while in DFW I will have 2hr 20 min between flights. Is it possible to meet them in baggage area for visit, then go back through security?
There will be baggage carts in the International baggage claim.
Will 1 hour be enough to get from terminal d to A
If the first flight is domestic that is enough time, however, most arrivals in Terminal D are not domestic. Where are you flying from and to?
Have overnight flight in DFW arriving 8:45 p.m. And departing to BZE at 10:35 a.m. Next day. Staying at Grand Hyatt. Will we pick up bags on arrival and recheck next day?
Yes, you will
This Tuesday (Aug 16th) I will be going from Jakarta,Indonesia to Tokyo, Japan to Dallas Fort Worth to Greensboro NC. I'm confused about my luggage situation from Tokyo to Dallas and then my domestic flight. Do I need to collect my luggage? or is it handled for me? I know i have to go through customs, but I'm very confused about what I do from there.
Your bags will be tagged to Greensboro, but in DFW, You will arrive in Terminal D, 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.
I am flying from Puerto Vallarta (PVR) to DFW on AA then on to LHR on BA, we have a 1:35 hour connecting time. We can check our bags all the way through in PVR, however I was told by AA that we may have to collect our bags in DFW and then go through customs. Is that correct and therefore would we have enough connecting time?
Yes, you may have to claim your bags in DFW. You will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security. This is a very difficult connection.
I m not a US citizen and will be leaving US from DFW, Do I have to go through immigration ?
There is no US Immigration for anybody when leaving the US. You just show your passport to the airline as you board your departing flight and they note your departure to USCBP.
