Anybody cleared in a corporate airplane/gen-av at DFW recently? Tips, etc? Friendly folks or horror stories, etc?

thanks

Yep
If your coming from Toluca go through Laredo. Always had a great experience and customs is right next to the runway so you avoid extensive taxi and take off delays.

No big deal at DFW. Not much of an FBO, but customs in this area is fine. Never had a hassle anywhere in Texas except one jerk in Laredo. He gave no hassle, just mad at the world.

DFW is fun. You can land in Dallas, taxi through Irving, Grapevine, Euless, Bedford, Fort Worth and several other cities to get to your gate. Expect a 45 minute taxi time. If you can get to DFW, you might want to consider DAL or FTW. Both can handle customs IF it is prearranged...both are much faster.
