Yes...you can include DFW in the "more".

I was wondering if it wouldn't be easier to enumerate the airports whose
multiple terminals don't have airside connections.

No, most definitely NOT. By a factor of several.

To me it seems like most hubs I go through (CLT, ATL, ORD, DEN, IAD, etc) are more connected airside, but the midsized non-hubs are not connected (SYR). Super crazy international airports seem to be disconnected (SFO, LAX, JFK)

I updated post #1 with a 'free to roam' and a 'disconnected' list.

Let me know what changes / additions are needed.

Thanks for the help!

Perhaps you want to make a seperate section for portions free to roam. I know painfully well that I can not get from the UA/US gates at IAH to the CO gates. I wanted to use a CO Presidents Club two week ago and I had to deal with multiple trips through security and a landside tram that was slower than heck.

IAH(B,C,D,E) (CO, International carriers, bus to half of A w/ CO,DL,NW)
SFO(E,F) (AA/UA/AC)
LAX(4,5) (AA/DL/Qantas)
LAX(American Eagle terminal bus transfers...)
LAX(6,7,8) (CO/UA)
ORD - can you get to the international terminal from T1/2/3? I'm not sure - never been in that terminal myself. Know for sure all domestic & canada are linked

I don't even know where to begin on your disconnected list. I'm presuming you just want to know airports that have clubs.

SJC, SAN, PHX, LAS, RNO, MCI, MCO, TPA, FLL, BOS, BWI, DCA, DTW, CVG, IND, STL, BDL, LGA, SAT, JFK, MKE, EWR...

Those are just the ones with clubs. Otherwise I would include: MRY, ONT, BUR, etc, etc, etc.

Airports with clubs where I don't know about airside connections: SLC, MEM, PBI, RDU, MSY, BNA, MIA, JAX, ANC, GSO...

MRY has like, 3 gates. Like it matters whether it's connected or not.

Apparently it can handle up to an MD80 though. I actually haven't confirmed this, so it's hearsay.

SLC too. It is handy when terminal 1 & 2 security checkpoints are backed up and you can walk 500 feet to International security and come across a 12-person line.

I am interest in terms of using an airlines lounge but flying on another carrier.

Really, is PHL really free to roam? Can one get into NW terminal through security, then walk to Delta Crown Room in gates A (pretty far away, in my understanding), and then get back to NW without re-clearing security? Just curious.

I was pretty sure MCO was split into a north and south side...

Or maybe it was East and West. I forget.

Same as for N Satellite, or satellite terminals of any airports around the world that require a people mover.
