Making this trip next.

Any idea which terminal I will be arriving in?, and which I will be departing from?

My ticket just says "terminal change", and I only have a 1 hour between flights.

DFW is a massive and gate assignments can be a crap shoot.

However most likely the departure to BZE will be out of D which is the international terminal (however I have done Mexico out of A and C prior also) and the return will certainly be into D for customs.
Your domestic leg will be into A or C most likely but could possibly into D also if the plane is needed for international leg.

Good luck, and enjoy the scenic train between terminals.

That's interesting. Never heard of any international trips out of A/C since D opened (on AA anyway).

You have a 50/50 shot of going to D. That was my experience of doing countless LAX-DFW runs.

You will be fine though, don't dilly-daly and you'll make it just fine.

Well the BZE departure is at 1245pm, so I assume you're on the 1145am arrival which just so happens to be a 767-300. If that's the case, the chances are good that you will arrive into Terminal D. The only other gates you could arrive at are: A23, A24, A39, C2, C4, and C8.

Your BZE departure will most certainly be out of Terminal D, so I'd give you an 80% chance of not even having to leave Terminal D.

I've flown on the LAX-DFW 763 before, and I've always arrived at Terminal D.

Same. I've flown AA 2448 4 times (the afternoon LAX departure) (3 763s, 1 772), and always arrived at terminal D. Interestingly, however, both yesterday and today AA 2412 arrived into A and C, respectively.

You're flight to BZE will leave out of terminal D, 100% sure of that.

Even if you do have to change terminals, 1 hour is practically overkill. The two stations farthest apart on Skylink are 8 minutes (meaning arriving into a low C gate, and departing out of a high D gate), and you're only 5-7 minutes from a Skylink stop, if you're at the very end of the terminals, otherwise it is likely less. So lets be conservative at say 10 minutes to the Skylink gate (which, in reality, is overkill even for a REALLY slow mover), 8 minutes on the Skylink, and then another 10 minutes to your next gate after you get off, that's not even 30 minutes. Max. You'll have time to get food, bathroom, shop, whatever. And Terminal D has got plenty of all of that.

Don't stress, you'll be fine!   

Cheers,
Cameron

I believe while AA tries to park international departures at D, depending on aircraft routing and gate availability one can on the rare occasion end up departing from A or C. I recall such both to MTY and MEX last 3 years.

For the domestic gates, I don't make a habit of trying to figure out the logic. In about 8 flights via DFW last couple months, I've been all over the place with no consistency based on time, destination, or equipment.

The early LAX-DFW 763 more often than not, turns to AA0005 DFW-HNL. So a departure from A39 or C2 (C8 is closed right now) wouldn't be unusual at all.

The afternoon LAX-DFW 763 more often than not, turns to LHR or SCL. When I flew 2448 back in mid-August, it turned to AA0945 DFW-SCL later that evening.

It was a 767-300 with winglets  http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash2/hs192.ash2/45504_10150235121950527_774370526_14301437_2838853_n.jpg

When I flew in from SFO to DFW on a 763 on AA the flight turned to SCL as well.

Thanks!

After using FlightAware, and checking on the flight numbers for Saturday ONLY flights # 2412, and where they usually disembark, for the last few weeks, looks like it lands at D Terminal and my flt to BZE departs from D Terminal. ( But of course like you said, anything could change)

Looks like I'm good. Thanks for all your help! :-}
