Just in time for holiday travel, flying can be awesome once again.
Thank American Express. Their new Centurion Lounge at DFW Airport's Terminal D upgrades every single aspect of the airport experience to the point where we might just "book a flight" for Valentine's Day.
Instead of washing yourself at the sink like a migrant worker, you'll...
Step into your very own luxurious shower room filled with L'Occitane amenities, plush towels, and everything you might need to freshen up before a flight.
Instead of subsisting on Clif bars, bruised bananas, and beef jerky, you'll...
Comb through a decadent buffet from Chef Dean Fearing, including a lavish salad bar and signature smoked BBQ brisket tacos.
Instead of trying to get buzzed on flat beer and "vintage" Pinot Noir, you'll...
Enjoy some of the best custom cocktails for miles masterfully envisioned by Jim Meehan, the man behind the first-ever James Beard Award for Outstanding Bar Program. Whatever your poison, mixologists can make it for you from the fully stocked bar.
Instead of nervously picking at your cuticles for fear of missing your connection, you'll...
Schedule time for an actual in-airport spa treatment, from mini-massages to manicures and facials available in the tranquil Exhale Spa on the opposite side of the 6,000-square-foot space.
Best of all, once you're inside this airport oasis, everything is complimentary to American Express Platinum and Centurion card members ($50 day pass for all other AMEX card members).
Arriving six hours early for a flight is now highly recommended.
Price: Complimentary access for American Express Platinum and Centurion card holders; $50 all other AMEX members
