Transit At DFW...10-11 Hours

Sun Mar 22, 2009 7:53 am

Okay everyone. I have decided that I am going to Barbados. I leave YYC Monday at around 2PM, and I arrive at BGI sometime around 9PM Tuesday.

The one question I have regards the transit period at DFW. See, I arrive at just a little after 7PM on the Monday, and my flight doesn't leave until 6AM on Tuesday. I have never done a connecting flight in excess of 3 hours beforehand, so I am curious: will they (AA) take my bag off the plane and hold it in transit, or do I need to go to baggage claim, re-check it at DFW for the continuing flight to MIA and BGI, or will it just stay in some holding pen or whatever at DFW for 11 hours?

Thanks for the help,
I need a drink.

Just ask them to check it to DFW only and then you can pick it up and then re check in for the next portion the next morning.
