It’s hard to complain about something that is free (to me and two companions with my Capital One Venture X card). My family has gotten so much use out of the Capital One Lounge at DFW. We go there before almost every flight for a relaxing meal or snack. You can see my original review here.
This past weekend, I arrived at the airport early to have dinner in the lounge before my flight. When I arrived downstairs, there was actually a waitlist to get into the lounge. I’ve never experienced this before. I put my name on the list, and they told me it would be 20-25 minutes. However, I got a text just 4 minutes later telling me that it was my turn to enter.
I was happy to see some new-to-me dishes on the buffet (meatball sliders and garlic deviled eggs) as well as some kid-friendlier desserts (3 types of cookies).
But the thing that made me the happiest was the addition of takeaway water containers! The lounge has always had boxed sandwiches and salads plus some canned drinks, but regular water was never an option. Yes, I know it’s a small thing, but it’s a big deal to me.
I always take water with me on my flights. I have chronic sinus problems, and so I often need a sip of water. Usually, I have to stop by a store and buy water after I leave the lounge. Not anymore!
So now, I’m saving even more time and money at the airport. It’s the little things. 🙂
