Have any flights through Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport coming up?  If you want to check out the Centurion lounge there, you’ll have to wait a few more months!  The DFW Centurion Lounge delay in opening was confirmed via email from American Express.

The original planned closure of the Centurion Lounge had an opening date of August 14th.  Due to “additional maintenance needed” AmEx will be keeping the doors closed for now.  If you check out AmEx’s own website, the language still notes an August 14th opening as of the time of this writing.  In email correspondence last Friday, American Express confirmed they need at least another 2 months to complete the work.  Right now, the company is targeting an early October re-opening.

We wanted to provide an update on the Centurion Lounge at DFW

Due to additional maintenance needed in our current DFW Centurion Lounge location, we will not be reopening this space. However, we look forward to welcoming Card Members into our new expanded Centurion Lounge location in DFW airport in early October, which will be located across from Gate D12 (near the Starbucks and Duty Free). We apologize for any inconvenience.

The famous blue doors at the Centurion Lounge LGA…looks like they need a paint job!

So where do I spend my layover?

American Express was kind enough to point out a few other options American Express Platinum cardholders have:

  • Minute Suites – Terminal D (1 hour free courtesy of Priority Pass)

  • Minute Suites – Terminal A (1 hour free courtesy of Priority Pass)

  • The Club at DFW – Terminal D (another lovely Priority Pass option)

  • Delta Air Lines Delta Sky Club – Terminal E (You’ll need a Delta boarding pass to access this one, unless you have status with Delta Airlines.)

Although none of these options will compare to a Centurion Lounge, you do have some fallbacks to take advantage of.  Note this isn’t an exhaustive list of lounges at Dallas/Fort Worth, just the lounges affiliated with American Express.  Check out the airport’s website for more information.  Since DFW is a major international airport, there are multiple American Airlines lounges, a United Lounge, and a number of lounges run by international carriers.  Now all we need is a restaurant option at DFW!

Ultimately, the DFW Centurion Lounge delay isn’t a huge issue.  We only have to wait a few extra weeks and we have alternatives.  Until then, see you at The Club…which I’m sure is packed with the closure of the Centurion Lounge!)!
