More messing around DFW
Ah. Back in the international terminal again. Nice and bright, big spaces. I like this.
I also like these…
Distant international guests too.
However, my next flight would be from the Domestic C gates, so it was up into the air for the SkyLink, and for an eye in the sky tour of DFW
Soon enough, the train had completed the loop to the C Gates, and it was off on a new adventure.
And we’re in the C Gates. Where the D gates were full of light, the C Gates… aren’t. Dark is how I’d best describe it.
Still there were some interesting things… like this vending machine:
Well.. it’s different for those who had their stuff taken by Security…
And various overnights kits
The design of the terminal makes it a short walk from the gate to the pavement, but it does mean you’ve got a walk to go anywhere within the terminal. Annoying, but passable.
Thankfully, there was some nice neon art on the way.
A Neon Eagle..
With this bit of art, there was also an Admiral’s Club right behind it. Very useful.
There was a bit of queue to get into the club, but I was processed quickly enough
Once that was done, it was up in the elevator into the club itself.
Umm. What do they define as proper? *panic*
The lounge whilst lacking in natural light had an evening glow in the place that was relaxing
I found a spot to relax in, as well as cashing in my drinks voucher for another bottle of American Airlines premium water bottle
Your experience may differ.
Whilst the club was busy per-say, it seemed relaxing enough, and there was accessible – power always a good thing.
With the WiFi reasonably fast, time sped by, and soon it was time to haul myself to the gate. Which was right opposite the club. Convenient to say the least.
During the build up to boarding, there was a call for volunteers with a $300 travel credit and a First Class Re-routing direct to Chicago – I didn’t take advantage as I wanted the tier points from this leg, so I skipped and waited for the boarding call.
And when it was made, I headed down to the waiting MD-80…
