I often read a club newspaper in there and then put it back.

Just don't try to donate it to the homeless. That or muffin stumps.

I've only used D and despite the hot water being out on one of my visits, I find it very nice. Haven't used A. I've pretty much only used showers on international flights and DFW-D is the only domestic shower I've used. I found it better than FRA and BA's 1st Lounge's at LHR. It just felt cleaner/newer.

A has possibly the best showers of any airport.

Also skye1, thanks for the reminder to "just do a search". Actually I did, and while you are correct there are lots of posts about AC's, there was very little information regarding the showers. There is a new terminal, D, and I could find no information about the showers there. I knew the very informed group here would give their honest experiences.

Have a good weekend!

I was in the terminal A AC a few weeks ago. Long layover so took advantage of the workout room (which consisted of a stepmaster, treadmill and exercise bike), which was nothing to write home about. The shower was great though, had the rain shower head mounted on the ceiling, a separate hand-held shower head, and 6 spray nozzles mounted at body level.

Ha! The muffin stump episode is one of my favorites!

Thanks for all the great information.....as always, FT's always have the most accurate information.
Have a great week!

Am I the only one who manages to get water all over the place! What is the deal with the paper towel to wipe off your feet when you get.

Does the Terminal A AC still have the great showers and exercise room? Just curious as to whether it may have been affected by any renovations (the only DFW AC I've been in is Terminal C).

Yes, it does. The best showers in the entire system! And AFAIK the only AC with workout equipment.

Comments on posts in the last several pages.

AC in B is small compared to the rest, and has no showers. It is usually quiet. It opens at 6am weekdays and 7am on weekends (I know, I tried to get in at 6:30 Saturday and had to read the current sign) It is located between gates B4 and B5 at the far south end of terminal B. It is actually at the corner where the B hallway turns and goes to D. Also, the walkway that connects A and B ends just outside the B AC. If you are walking from A to B (or B to A) it is convenient. If you are departing from a high D gate, it may be closer (walking) than the D AC. You can watch the aircraft movement for the high D and low B gates out the window.

In talking with an AAngle last week, the lack of a FC loung came up. In a staff meeting someone ask why no FC at DFW, they were told they did not have a FC at DFW because of lack of competition. (As has been reported on FT before)

I have not used A or C clubs enough to comment on them.

The D club is good. Great view as noted. Very large. The rain forrest shower was refreshing.

Someone please tell me how to shift from "rain forrrest' to the overhead shower head!

Yup. No competitive reason to offer one. And many fewer 772 International First passengers than JFK or MIA. A FL at DFW would be full of EXPs.

Nice... nobody offers something better so we dont need to offer our own premium pax something nice either. Let them hang out in the AC with trail mix and a drink cupon

D Club is still my preference !
