After my hearty dinner the previous night, I decided to wake up early to do some exercise at the hotel's fitness center. You know what they say a moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips. Once I finished my routine and took a shower, I grabbed a quick bite from the uninspiring breakfast buffet and then headed to the airport.
I was dropped off at T3 and the domestic side was getting busy.
On the other hand, the counter for intl flights, especially JL was blissfully empty.
I made the Priority line to clear security and it moved slowly. As I approached the conveyor, a TSA agent was reminding people to empty the pockets and place everything on the trays. This particular agent was having a bad day judging by the way that she interacted with other passengers by being snappy and lacking patience.
Once I made it to the other side I collected my items quickly and by now it was about 3 hrs before my flight, so I went to UA's terminal and spent some time visiting a few of its clubs to kill time. I sometimes do not use the corresponding lounge for the flight that I take, so I'm a little bit unusual in that sense.
Going over to UA and passing by the AA Eagle terminal.
UA CLUB T1 by gate B6
I was welcomed by a very friendly agent with a big smile and was invited to proceed upstairs to reach the lounge. There is a small sitting area in front of the Customer Service counter where I settled for most of my stay. A bar is located in the back.
UA CLUB T1 by gate B18
You go down through the stairs in order to reach the lounge. In addition this lounge has a strange setting with a ramp connecting to a lower level.
UA CLUB T1 by gate C16
No stairs going up or down. Everything is in one level. This is the biggest one with a shower and views to the ramp. In addition the Business Center is quite large with individual cubicles for privacy.
After my UA lounge hopping, I returned to the AA T3 and upon entering I am reminded of the movie Home Alone.
My plane at gate K12
Boarding was quick and once I settled in my seat the FA offered PBD consisting of water or orange juice.
Taxiing to the runway
Service started with a hot towel, followed by warm nuts.
Today's flight was a snack and there was a choice between a cold grilled beef salad or chicken wrap. I had the beef salad and it was served with the slices of beef on a separate plate. Overall I enjoyed this dish. The strong flavors of the blue cheese and slices of purple onion complemented the robustness of the beef nicely. Too bad that there was no warm bread to accompany this dish.
To end the meal, warm macadamia and white chocolate cookies were distributed. The FA also offered chocolate chip cookies in case you did not want the first choice.
Finally we were ready for landing at DFW. It was a hot day so there were a lot of boats on the water.
The houses look the same.
Caught this S80 taking off.
A 757 parked on the way to the gate.
Chicago - ORD
Dallas/Fort Worth - DFW
Comfort was decent as expected.
Service was polite and carried out efficiently.
The salad was fine and I enjoyed it but it could be improved with a selection of warm breads.
We left a few minutes late and arrived early.
