Good News from the DFW Amex Centurion Lounge

Today I spent a few hours in the DFW American Express Centurion Lounge between flights, and there are a couple of bits of good news and updates I wanted to share for those who love this lounge as much as I do.  If you don’t know much about this lounge, I recommend you check out my pretty comprehensive post and video review of the lounge here.  I won’t rehash all the details of the lounge here, but instead will post a few updates.

New Menu Items Coming:

First, the biggest news for those who are lucky enough to regularly come through this lounge…new menu items are reportedly coming this month!  I was told they plan to be on a roughly 90 day menu rotation, and so their first round of new menu items should be coming very soon.  They will be keeping some of the current selections, but mixing it up with some new items as well.  Their food is good here, but if you come through here on a regular basis, you can start to want something new…or so I’m told, I’m not tired of the enchiladas, salad, and beef quite yet.

Lunch today was delicious!

Not Too Hard to Get a Spa Appointment:

The lounge was pretty busy on this Friday afternoon, but I was still able to book a massage for just over an hour after I got there.  As soon as that appointment was done I was eligible to go back to the front and book a different service, so was able to also squeeze in a manicure.  It seems the wait for massages and facials is a bit longer than for manicures, at least based on my small sample.  My guess is if you have less than an hour in the lounge you aren’t likely to be able to get a spa appointment if you are transiting during relatively peak periods, but if you have more than an hour (or are here during an off time) your chances of getting one are pretty good.  Just be sure to sign-up as soon as you arrive at the lounge as it is first come, first served.

Chair massage

As a reminder, these 15 minute services are free other than a tip at your discretion.  All of the treatments are done with you fully clothed, so there isn’t a whole bunch of prep time wasted on the front and back end of your treatment.

Overall this lounge has a different vibe now that it is quite a bit more popular than on my first visit, but it is still a very very top end domestic airport lounge.  I will always look forward to coming through here for a massage and a meal!

The Platinum Card® from American Express has taken some hits recently with the upcoming loss of access to several airline lounges, but as long as they keep expanding the presence of the Centurion Lounges, then this card will remain pretty darn valuable to my family since it gets you and your family in complimentary to these lounges.  Between my meal, snacks, and two spa services I certainly got some value out of the lounge today!

Let me know if/when you start seeing some new menu options in this lounge and have a great weekend!

  1. I was curious when this first came about. I had about a 3 hr layover in DFW back in December. I didn’t have the amex plat, so I had to pay the fee (which was well worth it than paying for any other lounge access). I was definitely impressed!! I even liked the chaise lounge chairs overlooking the gates 🙂 so quiet!

  2. Looks great! Really need more lounges like that in the US. Would love to have it here in Houston but, so far, they only officially annouced LGA and SFO. Possibly, PHL, ORD, and MIA per thread on FT.
