Best DFW Admirals Club?
 
I'm going SFO-DFW-MSP next week and have a couple hours layover in DFW. Luckily I have a guest pass to the AC from the 2-for-1 deal in May. I searched and found that the AC in terminal D is best, but how would you rank the others? In my case, I'm gonna be there in the afternoon so I'm not interested in what the showers are like, but I would be interested in which one I have the best chance of finding some free drink coupons that some international biz passenger might not want :D

From what I know Terminal D (which is where I'm sitting as I type this) is the new main international terminal. I've been in A & C many times but this is my first time in D. If the AC here is anything like the rest of the terminal it will definitely be the nicest. Jump on the skylink and it should only take a few minutes to get here from any terminal.

I would just go to the one closest to my departure gate as they're all pretty nice. Having said that, I have a slight preference for the C club over the A club. The B club is pretty small and if getting some drinks is among your goals, IIRC, the B club does not have a full bar.

I agree to just go to the one closest to the departure gate. The one in D is nicer (and newer) but all in all they are pretty much the same.

Personal preference for me is A. The terminal in D is nicer though. They are all very similar. More miliary people in D (God bless them) and it feels more crampt.

iirc, only a & d have smoking...

CloudCoder Jul 13, 06 10:08 pm

It kinda depends on what's important to you. Views of the airfield? D or to some extent B. Get your own coke from a machine instead of from a bartender? Only B. Friendly efficient staff? All 4. "Internet Cafe"? A or D.

My preference: whereever Jose or Rhonda are working!

Thanks for all your comments. Sounds like D would be nice for the view, but I will probably let the gate assignment for my departing flight make my decision for me.

I will have to admit - the last time I was in "D" (last month,) there were at least three drink coupons left behind on tables. (The likelihood of finding an unused drink coupon would not be my main criterion in selecting a lounge, but YMMV.)

I have a habit of leaving them in the elevator, stuck behind the corner of one of those signs stuck to the front panel.

I typically end up with an extra so I've often thought that there should be a designated but semi-secret FT “chit recycling location” in DFW D.

My personal preference is A. I do like the new club in D, but I like the intimacy of the old FL area in A.

Also, one of the best-kept secrets at DFW is the SHOWERS in A! They simply are DIVINE! Much, much better than the ones in D. Plus, A has a small fitness center inside security.

D-C-A-B is how I rank them. Skylink makes it possible to choose a club if you have 2 hours. Also, you have more restaurant choices in D, so sometimes I eat in D, go get coffee and log-on at the AC, then saunter to my gate.

Whatever you do, enjoy! Travel isn't the easiest these days. Also, there's a Starbucks at most of the Skylink entries. I find this to be convenient as well.

I totally agree with this. The fitness center/shower combo in A is great---if I've got a couple of hours at DFW, I know that I can still get a workout in. Yeah, the showers at A are the best here imho, but I don't think the OP was too concerned about shower rankings.

The point about the old FL area in A is a great one: I've been "thru" there several times on my way to the fitness area, & on my last trip I really noticed what a great "sanctuary" it is. It's an incredibly quiet, usually solitary area...plenty of rooms & areas to sit down & work without a sound or soul around.
