With over two hours of time to kill in DFW, my father and I headed to the American Express Centurion Lounge in Terminal D. Amex recently replaced their old lounge, which was around 9,500 sq. feet, with this new lounge that's 12,500 sq. feet and opened in September 2018.
We took the Skylink to Terminal D where the lounge was located across from Gate D12.
The lounge is located on the second floor, so we had to take the elevator up.

If you have The Platinum Card or The Business Platinum Card from American Express you and two other guests get free access to these lounges which there are many in the United States and various international destinations.
There were cookies just past the front counters.
After getting access you walk to a hallway where you can either turn right or left. To the left is where most of the lounge is and the food and bar area, and to the right is some more seating, the showers, conference room, and spa.
Anyways, if you turned left you would walk by some chairs and tables on the left side of the wall and some comfy sofas on the right. There are also TVs on the walls.
The buffet area consisted of the buffet and bar on the left and views on the check-in area on the right. There were many tables and chairs to choose from including a large wooden one by the bar.

If you continue through the buffet area you would find the bathrooms and some more seating on the right. The hallway opened up into a large seating area that had the same chairs that I saw earlier.
Even More Seating
If you turn left there is a large conference table.
Having thoroughly explored the lounge I decided to connect to the fast wi-fi and get some food to eat. The main spread had some sausages, pancakes, scrambled eggs, a quiche-like dish, and then another offering that I forgot the name of.
Next to the sausages, there were many fruits that including watermelon, blueberries, honeydew, and cantaloupe.
Continuing along the line there were some chips with two types of sauces, granola, greek yogurt, and cornbread muffins. There was a large coffee machine next to this which I didn't take a picture of.
Chips, Yogurt, and Muffins
I grabbed a plate that consisted of chips, pancakes, scrambled eggs, and sausages and sat down to eat. The food was very good, but the pancakes were very sweet when added with syrup.
We stayed in the lounge until 11:40, where we went off to catch our flight to CLL.
American Eagle Flight 3347 Operated by Envoy Air
My flight today was leaving from Gate B39, which is the stinger concourse in Terminal B.
My aircraft today was an ERJ-140, operated by Envoy Air for American Eagle. We passed by a similar aircraft on our way to the gate.
American Eagle ERJ-140
We arrived at the gate where boarding had already commenced, so we didn't have to wait. The aircraft today was N810AE, delivered in October of 2001. It has spent its whole life flying for AA. It's nice to see some aircraft painted in the old American Eagle colors.
Inside the aircraft, there are 44 seats (41 Main Cabin and 3 Main Cabin Extra), arranged in a 2-1 configuration. The ERJ-140 is one of the smallest commercial jet planes and the aircraft felt very cramped walking down the aisle.
More people got on after us and eventually, 41 out of 44 seats were taken. Legroom was a bit tight, but only if you had a personal item below the seat in front.
We pushed back at 12:20 PM.

Terminal E in Background
The flight attendant passed through the aisle to hand out snacks. Since this was a short flight, only water was offered.
Soon enough, we started to descend into College Station.
In the background, you can see Kyle Field, home of the Aggies. One of the largest stadiums in the world, it can seat over 100,000 people.

AMEX Centurion Lounge
Dallas/Fort Worth - DFW
College Station - CLL
The Amex Centurion Lounge is great, and I would definitely recommend visiting it if you stop at DFW and have the right card. The ERJ-140 is pretty cramped, but it didn't matter on this short half hour hop to College Station.
