The new FSL is phenomenal. Was there tonight for a preview. Will share the following pics (and not link to my blog in order to comply with FT policy), plenty more to come. They're mainly of the Flagship First Dining area as well as the big Rotunda chandelier over the main entry.

The entire complex (FSL/FFD/AC) is 25000 square feet, with the FSL and FFD taking up around 3/4 of it

That’s not FlyerTalk policy; you’re welcome to include a link to your blog.

7. Linking To Content On Other Websites link to this Rule

FlyerTalk is here for the purpose of sharing meaningful information. Don't simply post a link by itself to another source, such as an article or blog. (See also, Rule 9 — Posting Copyrighted Material.) Posts containing such links should contain enough information so as to be contributive to FlyerTalk itself.

If linking to your own blog, to a blog on behalf of someone, or to a blog of which you are a periodic or regular contributor, you must identify that fact in your post and you must include enough content for the FlyerTalk post to stand on its own without following the link. Do not post repeatedly in a manner that has the effect or purpose of driving traffic to a blog or website.

Exceptions to this rule include:
i. Linking to a travel program website page containing information relevant to the discussion (such as a ticketing rule or terms & conditions of a promotion being discussed in the thread);
ii. Linking to the websites of established news organizations or to company press releases with details of an ongoing news event (such as an airline or hotel incident). In such a case, merely providing the headline of the new item along with a link to it, without posting additional content, is allowable.
Posts that do not conform to these rules may be deleted and repetitive offenses may subject the poster to discipline.
E.g. “This link is to an online source to which I contribute and/or have a financial interest.”

I’m posting this publicly to illustrate the rule to all members.

Ah thanks JDiver! Thought it was limited to the External Resources forum. I'll link the post when I'm through with it, I've whittled it down to my final 70 images!

I guess this makes sense as D is the primary Int'l terminal at DFW, and one would expect more qualifying FSL pax there than domestic only AC members. But I still think the AC will be super crowded .

Can you see into the FFD from the lounge? I notice those diagonal windows in your pictures look reflective from the lounge side, but transparent from the FFD side. Are they one-way mirrors or heavily tinted?

Thanks for sharing all the images. The lounge looks so organized, clean and tidy. Let's see what it looks like at the end of day 1!
