Connecting flights

Hi,

We will be flying into Dallas Fort Worth from Las Vegas and have a connecting flight to Orlando. We have 1hr 10mins to make the connection, will this be enough time to make the connection? Do we have to go through customs and security again? And would we need to check our bags in again? This is the first time we are catching a connecting flight so any advice will be great.

Thanks

Customs? It's a domestic flight...

Security? As long as you remain airside, no.

Re-checking bags? If you're on one ticket then no.

You do have time, I've done a 50 minute one, with a delay of 15 minutes, but my bags didn't arrived. So if everything goes according to plan you and your bags can get to Orlando on time, but there might be chances that if a delay occurs your bags won't be able to run from plane to plane.

You will not be leaving any country- both of your flights are within the USA. Thus, you will NOT go through customs and your bags will be checked through to Orlando.

I think 1 hour and ten minutes will be just fine.

But man, out of the two cheesiest tourist traps to visits- getting stuck in both Vegas and Orlando sounds dreadful.

Seriously, it will be enough, US airports are used to dealing with short connecting times.
