Is is this true? That would seem to mean I might have to leave the lounge an hour before boarding depending on security.

Took the flight AMS-DFW yesterday and was surprised that we were shuttled to load the plane via steps, no jetway. Passengers are told if they're not at the gate 30 mins prior to departure they are not obligated to fly.

We arrived 2 hrs early and took that long to get thru check-in, security and make it to the bus. Aspire Lounge is after security, but we didn't stop in.

The flight departed right on time, was a nice haul in J on the 772. We had four sAAvers that we scored right after the new flight/schedule was loaded, made for a happy family.

AA biz AMS-DFW

I am flying AMS-DFW next Sunday in biz class. I have been to both the Aspire and BA lounge and will try both if I have time. I am staying at the Hampton by the airport so I donít have to rush.

Will be interested to see if your experience next week is different than your past experiences. (If I were staying near the hotel, Iíd rather sleep-in than get to the airport for either of those lounges.)

My conclusions from being in both lounges earlier this year:
- BA: in the morning, itís a very thin food spread. Yoghurt, a small plate of cold meat and cheese, some breads/pastries. No hot foods. Smaller lounge, but more quiet. Moderately easy to find space to sit/relax.
-Aspire: similar food options as BA with the addition of a hot soup and a hot egg item from a chafing dish. Heineken on tap. More often crowded, harder to find a place to sit in morning, dishes all over the place as staff just canít keep up with the traffic.

Aspire Lounge 41




Well it was pretty full this morning and PriorityPass members were not allowed until 11:00. They had a person stationed outside the entrance to check.

Lounge was pretty full but clean and stocked. I had a few rolls, coffee and water. They did have a couple of hot items.

I did not have time to go to the BA lounge.
