Flying from Chennai (MAA) to Seattle. Change over at London (BA to AA) and at DFW ( AA to AA). Arriving DFW 6.45pm @ Terminal-D and Departing 8.35pm (Terminal not known). Is this 1h50m sufficient for TSA check and catching my connecting flight to Seattle? How is the rowd in evening on Saturday

    Did you make a mistake on the arrival/departure times or the interval? 8:35 - 6:45 is 1 hr 50 min.

  • Yes the interval is 1hr 50 min. Is it too short for Immigration check and to rush to catch my connecting flight to Seattle?

  • DFW is HUGE, but has a shuttle train and lots of moving sidewalks to make it easy to get around quickly. I haven't gone through Immigration at DFW, but I know you can get to your gate fairly quickly. Commented Mar 22, 2019 at 15:15

    I think I only made that connection once, and it was pretty quick, though of course it may vary depending on your status/visa and possibly on variable queues, but IIRC DFW is a breeze compared to MIA for instance.

  • I would recommend you look at a map in advance. DFW is a large airport and it really helps to know how you plan to get between the gates. dfwairport.com/connect/index.php

If the airline sold you that as a single ticket, they have every expectation that the connection time is sufficient to clear all checks.
