International arrival - easiest airport for connection?

Jump to last reply

I have a family of inexperienced flyers, none of which speak English. A direct flight from South America is $800 more than a 1 stop alternative, but we are afraid of them being overwhelmed or lost during a US connection. Choices are DFW, ATL or EWR (Newark?)

Are any of those three choices substantially simpler? Note, they are two grandparents flying with their 6 year old grandchild. All are on a tourism visa to visit their son (and me) at Christmas. We live in Boston. I'm inclined to skip Newark for weather reasons, but would do it if it's easier than the others.

Thank you in advance for your guidance.
