DFW International Airport Reviews
The vast DFW International Airport May 13, 2010
DFW International Airport is the major airport serving the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth and all of the surrounding North Texas Metroplex. It is is the fourth busiest airport in the United States. When the airport opened in 1974, much was made of the fact that its total land area exceeded that of Manhattan.
DFW Airport today is a major domestic and international air transportation facility. There are five Terminals, A, B, C, D, and E, with D the International Terminal. It is a primary hub for American Airlines. In fact, American Airlines and its commuter partner American Eagle, occupy all of Terminals A, B, and C.
The large airport is fairly easy to navigate. The Skylink peoplemover transports passengers between terminals. (There are two Skylink stops at each terminal.) If you know your gate number, you can be dropped off at street level close to your boarding area. If you are making a connection or you find your gate has been changed, consult one of the many departure boards for the appropriate gate and Terminal. Use Skylink to reach another Terminal. Inside the security area are shops, restaurants, fast food, and cocktail lounges. (The shops specialize in Texas-themed merchandise. Take home some Texas salsa as a souvenir.)
Ground transportation to the airport is by car (there are long-term Remote North and Remote South parking lots), taxi, Super Shuttle vans, and Trinity Railway Express commuter trains.
