That's just shy of one hour, actually... I think you can do it. I dunno... I am trying to remember. I have never connected at DFW, since I live here. But, having flown out of it a WHOLE BUNCHA TIMES, I think you'd be okay. A bit rushed (long walking distances- take the TrAAm if you can) but doable. Just hope the flights are on time!

No problem at all as I have done it often with less time than you have. Enjoy your trip. If you're not up for the walk you can flag down one of the carts that carry handicapped passengers, or take the TRAAM which will give you quite a view of the airport. Given that you are going the opposite direction of the TRAAM (if EMBQA is correct on the gates) I would suggest the walk.

Walk.....don't even waste time with the TrAAin. If the gates hold true, which they should, you'll be looking at your new gate across the ally when you get in to your connecting gate. For 2 months I was commuting from BNA to OKC thru DFW (how I know the gates don't really change) I would come in at C39 and dapart at A12. That was a hike, but I still could do it in 15/20 minutes.

Back in May I did from C30's to A30s using the TrAAin and it took me about 20 minutes including some walking and a stop at the restrooms.
Now here is a curious thing, I got off the plane at about 2PM and looked at the screen to see my flight's gate and it said FINAL BOARDING ( the flight was scheduled to dpeart at 3) so I hurried to the gate in TA and got there about 2:20 and we didn's start boarding till 2:30-2:40. I can't figure out why it said Final Boarding.
You should be fine since it's all on AA and if your first flight is delayed I'm sure AA can put you on a later flight, just hope its not on an MD-80

I knew it was about time for an MD-80 bashing.
A 757 is more cramped due to no MRTC on there. Also, the MD-80 may not have IFE, but if a window is not enough for even a 4 hour flight, you really have issues. My eyes are glued to the window the whole flight except for a few times to snap a picture or drink some Coke.
I took a look at my flights' gates and I have to go A9 to C 39 is what it is looking for now. I hope that does not change, I want to use the Traain just to say I had rode that, kinda hoping I can see some aerial views from there. Maybe some pics if it is not too bad of shooting conditions through the windows.

Thanks guys! Another question, if I were to miss AA 1386 due to delays on AA 1316, would it be easy to get on the next flight? I ask this because I've had problems with AM at MEX in the past.
It won't be a problem. AA's computers recognize whether you'll miss a connection before you even arrive at DFW and will automatically rebook you on a flight that you'll be able to make. All you need to do is go up to any service counter and receive your boarding pass for your new flight.

my motto is: if you can do it at ATL, you can do it at DFW....I allow 45 mins at ATL on DL (assuming its a T to D or far end of A to E or something)...so an hour for AA at DFW should be a piece of cake

My job last summer was helping connecting passengers at DFW for AA. Just remember. From C39 to A9 is a 2 and 3/4 mile walk! You should have no problem. Just ask anyone. Maps are available throughout the terminal to tell you if it is faster to walk or take the TrAAin. If your connecting gate is highlighted in blue, you can walk faster. If it is red, taking the TrAAin is faster. Or it could be the other way around. Anyways, the sign will tell you.
