I parked at DFW Airport Remote South.  From there, it was a short ride to the Terminal E, where my United Airlines flight was departing.  I wanted to combine itineraries but no such luck.  This would prevent me from being automatically being rebooked on a United flight after my Singapore delay.  I arrived at E6 security checkpoint at 1216.  I was informed that TSA PreCheck was at gate E18, a five minute walk away.  I decided to use E6 checkpoint.  After an additional screening, I was through security 12 minutes later.

The walk to the DFW Skylink was four minutes.

I took the five minute Skylink ride to Terminal D where the AMEX Centurion Lounge is located.

From there, it was a one minute walk to the lounge.  The lounge is located across from gate D17.

I took the escalator up to the lounge.

Upon entering the lounge, I provided my ID, AMEX Platinum card, and boarding pass to gain access.

To the right of the check in desk was some refreshments, seating with a long table, and a meeting room.

I made a left and then another left down a long hallway towards the dining area.

Straight through the dining area was more seating.

The thing that saved the lounge was the food.  It looked delicious.

I went with the herb crusted chicken, roasted autumn veggies, and butternut squash with kale. The chicken was a bit dry, I did not enjoy the squash, at least the veggies were there to salvage the meal.

There was also a full bar, everything was complimentary.

Final Word

Overall, the lounge was more than adequate for me to spend some time before my flight. If you are traveling with a family of four, you will have a hard time finding seating together.  I wish the lounge was bigger, but there is no room for it to grow in its current location.  I will be visiting the lounge again in the future.
