With no time to hang around and take in the sights, I headed off the jetbridge, and headed to the direction of the Skylink – the people that connects the different terminals of Dallas Fort Worth up.
A good way to sell products – show what you’re selling!
I quickly found an escape route from Terminal A, and that was up the escalator to the Skylink
To the shuttle platform and beyond!
The wait for a train was a short one… and for those who are a slightly interested in planes, plane spotting or looking at planes, they Dallas Fort Worth Skylink is one of the places to do it:
Love the clown nose on that ERJ…
Thankfully the ride to the D Gates (home of the international departures) was a short one, and soon, I was on my way back down into the main terminal complex.
A quick look at the screens showed I had a little time before the next flight, so it was off the small room with me (because, lets face it – who really prefers an airplane toilet to a larger, cleaner ground toilet?) and a quick stop at Duty Free where I spotted a small bottle of Jack Daniels.
By small, I’m referring to something that’s… adequately sized. This caused a bit of consternation as the product had to be de-boxed, and the liquids sealed in a tamper-proof bag (as I was going through Heathrow security).
This caused a small delay, but I was at the gate in time for main boarding to commence.
My plane at the gate.. umm. That doesn’t look like a 777-300ER to me…
A busy crowd to London that night.
I was beeped through (with no upgrade sadly), and stood to the side until my duty-free arrived. With that, my brief flirtation with Dallas Fort Worth was over, and I was on my way back to the British Isles…
But not on the plane I was expecting….
Next: AA89 – Downgrades on equipment… upgrades in service.
