A One hour connection time should be ok if your flight is on time. AA
operates out of 3 terminals at DFW
, terminals A, B & C. Terminals A & C are mainline flights and Terminal B is for AA
Eagle and Connection. All American Terminals are connected by a rail system called TRAAIN that is located inside security so you don’t have to go through screening again if you have to change terminals. There are 2 stations in A, opposite gates A12 & A29 and 2 in C, opposite gates C2
& C30 and one at B, and they run about every 2 minutes. The TRAAIN system is a continuous one way loop system that goes from Terminal A, then to C, then to B, then back to A. So if your arrival gate is in Terminal C, and your departure gate is in A., then you would go all the way around, maximum time should be around 8 minutes. Terminals A and C are also connected by a walkway, if your arrival gate is near the walkway and so is the departure gate, it is an easy walk. AA
’s in flight magazine has a layout of all AA
’s terminals and gate numbers and so does their website. AA
usually will announce just before landing the arrival gate and departing gates for connecting passengers. If your flight is running late they will usually have electric carts standing by to immediately take you over to your gate.
Last week I flew AA
to Las Vegas connecting in Dallas, My flight from JFK
was delayed due to a mechanical problem and I arrived only ten minutes before the Las Vegas flight was to depart. The customer service Rep at the arrival gate said it was to late to connect and since that was the last flight out to Las Vegas I had to stay overnight in Dallas, AA
picked up the hotel bill.
Enjoy Hawaii, been there 13 times in the past 15 years.
