Dallas Fort Worth Airport
I left you in front of our gate (A41) where our Airbus operating the AA2356 was waiting us.
I really like the old fashion BP of American
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.
Old livery MD80
notice int'l outlet.
And an IFE : what a luxury on a such short flight!
Pushback at 9am, expected at 9:05: pretty good.
At this time the safety video was recent…
DFW is huge
We're in the last place but we exceed a small MQ
we cross a little mist and then: the sun
we're heading north while IFE welcoming us
Then i watched a movie (dracula) in english, but most movies were avalaible in many languages (including french)
more sunny outside
but we return on clouds
again and again
some planes from west to east
we started to see rocky mountains, in new-mexico
geovision is made by Thales and is really good.
the flight offers very beautiful landscapes
At 9:20 am (mdt) we started our descend over Denver nearby of CoSprings
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.
It was a rock'n'roll landing, as usual in Denver where winds are always strong due to moutains (foehn effect)
we cross the 26
Touch Down at 9:43 mdt.
Now we're heading concourse A
Jeppensen terminal and WESTIN Hotel:
turn on the left
UA and Rockies
A320 Frontier, at home here in Denver international.
And a E175 United, at home too.
And a beautiful Icelandair 752 : I don't know what it's going for them now with the 737max troubles, but I think their 752 gonna spend a little more time in the air.
Going to A51
Here, United and Frontier are the masters
And we stop beside an A321 AA from Charlotte Douglas.
It takes a little time. UA going to SF in 739
And an other 737 is landing from MSY
Then we finally can exist the airplane
We're going to baggage claim
Concourse center, where the train is.
We have to go down
I really love Denver train : it reminds me Zurich one: a little song, rapid and efficient.
And we arrived on the Terminal with his beautiful roof supposed reminds Rocky Moutains snowy peaks, a few miles away from the airport.
After picking-up our luggages, we're going out to take the shuttle to the car rental center.
And we're outside, it's only 40°F here.
The blue mustang
The airport from the bus
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 :
and finally we can drive the last 1.5hours to Breckenridge,co !!!!!
thanks for reading, i apologize again for my english, kisses loulou
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.
