After boarding, this is view of my window on the left side. Normally it'll allows me to have views of the rockies and denver downtown.

Rockies are pretty snowy : perfect

Despite my zoom we guess the beautiful CBD on Downtown Denver.

And we fly-over DIA, which is the biggest airport in terms of area just after King Fahd airport, Saudia Arabia. 
DEN is twice bigger than DFW, the 3rd … it gives good theories to complotists.

Mountains again: i'm totally fan of the rockies, and the Colorado .

We started our 180° turn-over to DIA.

Car rentals are just beside a runway : southwest departing to San Diego.

After few minutes in Hertz, an alarm started to ring  : it was a tornado alarm, and we have to come back to the airport to go in a torando shelter. Everybody were quiet and proceeded in silent; but it was a really.. interesting experience for us, french. I'm used to earthquakes and hurricanes 'cause I live in Guadeloupe, FWI, but tornadoes : it was my first time.

It was between a tornado and a sand storm :

Conclusion

AA : basic us catering : speculoos+drinks , totally insulting , but it's american standard now. Crew : nice.
WIFI but you have to pay, instead of DL or AS, but the IFE was a good surprise. I'm really positive about AA: their fleet is really young, except some old-US airways planes.

DFW: nothing to say, pretty fluid despite of the morning rush.

DEN: I love DEN airport, comfy with carpet, fluid, nice people working here, well-linked to Denver city-center, and a beautiful Terminal.
