Thank you I45 Tex, that brings back some fond memories. I remember flying out of DFW after its first opened as a kid . Everytime the connector between C and D,I look for signs of the old Airtrans footprint still standing (on the west side in front Terminal D). Oh the memories.

Which makes the Skylink all the more remarkable. Even back in Crandall's days when AA was wheeling and dealing to take over all of now Terminal A and C. No one would have thought AA would be the main tenant in three of the four terminals in that brochure. All possible by Skylink.

Thanks for posting!

At least it will make the flights between Dallas and home much more convenient, and on Air France nonetheless! I just hope they won't follow the national tradition and be on strike every couple days.

A direct DFW to Moscow flight would be a dream for my family and I, especially my in-laws in Moscow. But yes, getting from TX to anywhere outside Moscow is a nightmare. Our friends from Ufa always have great connection stories. Also, we still hate ourselves because of the canceled Houston-Moscow route that Singapore ended two years ago. That was a sweet flight, and decent connections for those going farther into Russia/former USSR.
