Those of you who have been following along for awhile know that one of the items on my travel bucket list is to visit all 3,143 counties in the United States. Now you can certainly argue that that is a silly goal to have, and I wouldn’t argue with you, but just know that there are many folks who are like-minded. There’s even an official organization (of course there is!) called the “Extra Miler’s Club“, whose motto is “the shortest distance between two points is no fun!”

As part of documenting my list of counties visited (currently at 1410 as of the writing of this post), I had trouble figuring out which county the Dallas/Fort-Worth airport (DFW) was in.  Or rather, it’s actually in TWO counties (Dallas and Tarrant)

Here’s a satellite picture of the DFW Airport runway map

As you can see, the terminal building is completely in Tarrant County, but some of the runways on the east side of the airport are in neighboring Dallas County.

  • Terminal A: American Airlines
  • Terminal B: American Eagle
  • Terminal C: American Airlines
  • Terminal D: AeroMexico, American Airlines, American Eagle, Avianca, British Airways, Cayman Airways, Emirates, Etihad, KLM, Korean Air, Lufthansa, QANTAS, Qatar Airways, Sun Country Airlines, VivaAerobus
  • Terminal E: Air Canada, Alaska Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Frontier Airlines, JetBlue, Spirit Airlines, United Airlines, US Airways, WestJet

When I flew through Dallas on my way from Cincinnati to Utah, I flew on American Eagle into Terminal B and then out of Terminal C.  Flying in, I was a bit disoriented and couldn’t figure out which runway I came in on, but on the way out, we flew out of the west runways and so I don’t think I can claim Dallas County… yet!
