Airport Review – DFW

Originally published at BunkBlog. You can comment here or there.

I didn’t have to go through security and check-in at Dallas-Fort Worth, so I can’t address those portions of the airport experience. The terminal is bright and easy to maneuver through, with two counter-rotating monorails zipping you around. There are CNN Airport News screens all over the place, but not too loud. The one closest to my connection looked like someone had tried to silence it with a shoe – the LCD had lots of nasty lines in the picture.

There was a Smoothie King right next to my gate, so that was nice. Opening up the netbook to make an entry was a bust, though. Unlike the tiny SJT, the massive DFW charges for wifi. Strangely, they provide several “free charge and internet” stations around the concourse. I don’t understand large corporations.

I’ll address LAX when I head home – it’s hard to get a flavor of an airport when you’re arriving. All I did was leave the plane, get my bag, and hop on the Enterprise shuttle.

Cheers.

What terminal were you in at DFW? I've never had to pay for wifi before which is why I ask.

I was in Terminal D. There were only two unsecured access points, one which was run by the American Airlines Admiralty club (paid) and another which I'm pretty sure was DFW's own (also paid). I was bummed.

Of course, I also find it amusing and astonishing that cheap motels nearly always have free wifi, and expensive ones either don't have wifi or charge $10 a day or more.

Huh. I think I always fly out of D as well, but then it's been a long while since I've tried to use the wifi. That sucks.
