Monday, Feb. 7, may be the busiest day in the history of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. At American Airlines and American Eagle as many as 25 percent more passengers than normal will board our aircraft. DFW International Airport is expecting three times its normal bus traffic, so airport entry plazas and roadways could be as crowded as terminals.
Given the expected crowds, American’s DFW customer service staff recommends arriving at the airport at least three hours, or more, before your scheduled departure. Checking in on AA.com and printing boarding passes prior to arrival will help ease the journey through crowded terminals.
Travelers Monday at DFW should expect longer lines at:
Airport Entry Plazas
Rental Car Returns
Ticket Counters/Check-in Kiosks
Baggage drop-offs (Curbside and Ticket Counters)
TSA Security Checkpoints
To help ease the backlog:
Terminal D and part of American Eagle’s Terminal B will be open all night Sunday evening into Monday morning, including:
American’s Terminals A and C will open at 3 a.m. Monday.
