The layout of the DFW airport may be confusing to some, but once you get a hang of it, you’ll come to realize that it really is simpler than it seems. And for a prospective passenger at the airport, it is definitely important to familiarize yourself with the design of the place and the locations of your places of interest, in order to save time, effort, and just overall allow your trip to run smoothly.
The confusion stems from the fact that there are five terminals, each with around 25 to 40 gates, and some terminals are connected to other terminals in their vicinity, while others are not in direct contact but are in contact through the inter-terminal transportation platforms.
Dallas Fort Worth Airport Terminal B
DFW Airport Terminal B is not only directly connected to Terminal A, but it is also extremely similar to it. The similarities lay in the structure, the amenities, the connections, and the purposes. In terms of purpose, Terminal B (just as the previous terminal) also serves American Eagle, which is a regional branch of American Airlines.
The boarding gates you will find at Terminal B are B1 to B49. The three levels of the structure are arranged in such a way where the ground transportation is on the lower level, check-ins and departures are on the first level, and the Skylink platform is on the upper level. This is the basic outline that you will find common amongst most terminals at the DFW.
Dallas DART (Delta Area Rapid Transit) is also accessible from Terminal B. Press here to check out the DFW Terminal B map. To check out the general map of the Dallas Fort Worth Airport Gates, press here.

In terms of lounges, passengers have two options. The first is the American Airlines Admirals Club lounge, where you can have a hot shower, watch some TV, play around with your kids in the designated children’s area, and grab a snack. Your comfort is guaranteed at the Admirals Club, so getting a day pass is definitely recommended! The other option is the USO Lounge, where similar luxuries can also be found! The USO Lounge is specific to currently serving military personnel and their families.
If shopping is what you’re into, then you’re in luck! A host of shops and stores can be found between all three levels of the terminal, intermingled with the cafes and restaurants. Some of these cafes and restaurants include:
