American Airlines has opened its new Flagship Lounge at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) to offer its passengers a relaxing space to improve their journey experience.

Located in Terminal D, the lounge is open for the airlines’ Flagship First and Flagship Business class passengers.

Spanning across 23,000ft², the lounge can accommodate up to 350 passengers. It is also open for business-class and first-class passengers for other airlines in the Oneworld alliance.

American sales and marketing senior vice-president Kurt Stache said: “It made sense for us to go all-in on the Flagship experience at our largest hub.

“More of American’s premium customers fly through DFW than anywhere else, and we think they’ll agree the Flagship experience is unlike any other.”

The lounge offers lounge-style seating, showers, and wireless charging stations. Guests can enjoy a variety of dining and drinking options available in the lounge.

DFW Airport has become American Airlines’ fifth airport with a Flagship Lounge, joining New York JFK, Los Angeles, Chicago O’Hare and Miami.

American Airlines has also opened its modernised Admirals Club lounge in Terminal D, which offers guests with an updated modern look, more power outlets, and access to showers and space to relax.

“It made sense for us to go all-in on the Flagship experience at our largest hub.”

American also plans to open its next DFW Admirals Club lounge in Terminal E later this summer.

The airline said that the lounge investment at DFW supports its strategy to build the most connected network at its most profitable hub.

American has been gradually ramping up its operations at DFW Airport. Starting in early June, it will operate more than 900 daily flights from the hub, an increase of 100 flights per day from last summer.

The airline recently launched 15 new gates in the Terminal E satellite, which supports more than 100 daily regional flights for American Eagle. American will open six mainline gates in Terminal B next month.
