DFW - long layover

Jump to last reply

I booked my flights a month ago for this coming July - with a one hour late afternoon layover in DFW. A couple days ago I received a notice that the schedules have changed - and now I have a FIVE HOUR into the evening layover. After calling the airline and finding out there's nothing I can do, I am stuck.

Is there anything to do at DFW for five hours? I'll have a carry-on, so probably won't be considering leaving the airport. Just wondering if there is anything available that would be interesting. Of course I'll have a meal and something to read, but geesh - FIVE HOURS.

The sad news, too, is that once I get to my home airport MUCH LATER THAN I WAS PLANNING, I will have to drive an hour, so I guess the cocktail lounge is not in the cards for me.
