Another Reason To Love DFW Airport?

By  | 

Last year I spent a lot of time in DFW while going for top status on American Airlines, and it’s one of my favorite domestic airports. Not only do they have some of the best domestic American Airlines lounges I’ve visited, they also have an American Express Centurion Lounge!

The food options are better than usual, Dickey’s BBQ is fantastic for airport BBQ and not bad for BBQ in general (although if you can go offsite to visit nearby places you should!), and apparently they’re even getting a Bahn Mi restaurant.

When my trip to Alaska turned into a day in Dallas with a stopover in Alaska, I actually enjoyed my stay at the very affordable Hyatt Regency DFW (great diamond amenity below). I’ve heard the Grand Hyatt is even better!

Now it sounds like there might be one more reason to get excited about a layover there? They’ve just opened a new light rail link to downtown Dallas, which means I won’t have to rent a car or hope Tiff is free at the last minute if I want to leave the airport for a few hours!

I’ve never ridden any public transportation in Texas, so not sure if this will actually be convenient — DC’s Metro is, Atlanta’s MARTA, not so much — but it sounds promising. The fact it only goes to Terminal A means folks will have to take shuttle buses to other terminals to check in, so that’s still a bit of a hassle, but at $2.50 a ride I’m willing to try!
