AMEX Centurion Lounge vs AA Admirals Club in Dallas (before QF8 to Sydney)

By mspcooper | Mar 01, 2018, 03:54 PM
For FF’s who have used the centurion lounge vs Admirals in DFW, what would you recommend? I’m QF platinum and have 5 hrs to kill at DFW.

Can't say I've been into the AA lounges in Dallas, but the thing I like about the DFW Centurion Lounge is that there's a spa and they give free treatments. Even if there's a waiting list, with five hours to kill you should be able to get one pretty easily: just remember, the treatment might be free but it's customary to tip.

Also just to note, AMEX changed its lounge rules last year, so you'll need a Platinum Charge Card or the Centurion Card to access the Centurion Lounge: you can't pay to enter using any other AMEX card as you could previously. :)

Thanks. I’m a Centurion Card holder. I’m flying J on my way back.

Nice one! If you weren't already aware, you can sometimes flash the Centurion Card at the bar in the AMEX Lounge for better Champagne than what's on the shelf.

To be honest, I’ve found the Centurion lounges to be fairly average. They’ve been crowded and pretty sterile. In Miami we walked out almost immediately as the dining area was a mess and filthy, and hiked back to the AA Flagship lounge which was much nicer, not crowded, better food and service. Unfortunately the flagship lounge isn’t open in DFW yet so Centurion is probably the better option than Admirals club. As above, flash your Centurion card to the bar staff and they’ll pour a proper Champagne (they will remind you on arrival at the front desk too). The shower facilities were quite nice there as well.

The Qantas Business and Premium lounges are a JOKE at DFW!! They are a 3rd rate carrier standard in seating food and amenities. Even the premium lounge (for first pax, Plats and higher ) self serve buffet of a whole 2 choices on paper plates and plastic utensils- yep paper and plastic!! Enhancements Mr Joyce for the 17K the F class ticket costs? Go to Amex lounge and enjoy a true premium experience lounge.

The Centurion lounge at DFW is lovely - far superior to the Admirals Club or the contract lounge that Qantas use before QF8.

Just clarifying, is it not an Associated lounge and not a QF lounge?

No question the lounge options are poor in Dallas. Does anyone have any info on when the new AA new Flagship lounge opens in Dallas? I am hearing 2018 but we are still at the front end of the year....

I enjoyed my visit to the AMEX lounge in Dallas, whilst it was busy at some points prior to QF flights, the food options and service was faultless. Hopefully you'll have more luck in getting one of the free 15 min massages too. But l know they are in the process of upgrading their AMEX Centurion lounge too.

I just saw this update on thepointsguy about the AA lounges.

As a Centurion card holder you can expect to be guided to a reserved seat in the bar area, even if the lounge is full.
