About transfers to non- oneworld airlines.

Boarding pass

  • Japan Airlines (JL) passengers connecting onto oneworld member airline flights should receive a boarding pass for the oneworld member airline flight upon departure from Japan.
  • If you do not have your connecting boarding pass, please proceed to the departure terminal for your connecting flight and carry out the check-in procedure at the connecting airline's transfer counter.

Checked baggage (Re-check)

Even if your final destination is within the US, all passengers must go through a customs inspection when entering the United States at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
Even if "final destination" is stamped on the baggage tag you were given when you checked your baggage at your departure point, you are still required to collect your baggage here and proceed through Customs.
The baggage collected for the customs inspection can be deposited again at Baggage Drop Off.

  • After completing the customs inspection, please proceed to the Baggage Drop Off counter at the far left-hand side.
  • Please show your airline ticket or boarding pass and re-check your baggage.

Passengers transferring from American Airlines or American Eagle (AA) flights to international flights on the same day are not required to collect their baggage at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport as the customs inspection entails only a document review.

Moving between terminals

Japan Airlines (JL) flights arrive at Terminal D.
Skylink is a free light rail train that connects all five terminals while inside of security.
Terminal Link is a free van shuttle between all terminals once outside of security.
