Current DFW Centurion Lounge Will Not Re-open, New Lounge Opens in October

A month ago I wrote that the Dallas Fort-Worth Centurion lounge would be closed through mid-August for ‘repairs’. American Express said the lounge would re-open August 14. I wrote “hopefully that project will not delay” because,

  • Most construction projects delay
  • Airport projects delay even more
  • The opening of the new, larger Dallas-Fort Worth Centurion lounge was delayed

Unsurprisingly the Centurion lounge at the DFW airport will not re-open August 14. In fact, the current DFW Centurion lounge will not re-open at all. Instead we’ll have to wait for the new lounge to open in October.

Here’s what American Express shared this morning,

Due to additional maintenance needed in our current DFW Centurion Lounge location, we will not be reopening this space. However, we look forward to welcoming Card Members into our new expanded Centurion Lounge location in DFW airport in early October, which will be located across from Gate D12 (near the Starbucks and Duty Free). We apologize for any inconvenience.

The good news is that the new lounge which was supposed to open in the first half of 2018 is 3500 square feet larger than the old one and American Express sees it on track to open in two months.

In the meantime, Platinum and Centurion cardmembers (and anyone with Priority Pass) can access:

  • Minute Suites in terminals A and D
  • The Club in terminal D

And cardmembers flying Delta same day can also use the Delta SkyClub in terminal E.

  1. Hope my international flight next week is not out of D gates since that Admirals Club is closed and now this.

  2. “The Club in terminal D”

    The most squalid excuse for a “club” at any airport in the world, with sub-coach quality food as well.

  3. As a frequent flyer based out of DFW, this centurian club is the primary reason why I pay for a platinum card. I am going to call Amex to consider either putting my account on hold for a few months or requesting a credit. Very frustrating…

  4. The Admirals Club in D is closed too.
    The Centurion Club was really nice when it opened, but became increasingly crowded. I hope the additional space in the new one will help.

  5. The ONLY reason to visit The Club in D is to grab a bottle of water. Seating is limited and filthy, the place is not a real lounge. Guess I’ll pay $4 for a bottle of water and avoid the trek to D until AMEX opens.
