Party at DFW
Impersonators of Queen Elizabeth II, royal guardsmen, Dutch maids and a Beatles cover band will be on hand to help Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport celebrate the US-EU Open Skies agreement on Sunday. March 30 also marks inaugural nonstops to London Heathrow and Amsterdam Schiphol airports. Check out DFW's nifty countdown clock.
DFW was the first airport to win new service under Open Skies: British Airways will link the airport to London Heathrow with daily flights starting March 30.
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will begin daily service to Amsterdam on the same day.
From the airport's press release: "First-flight arriving and departing passengers on American Airlines, British Airways and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will be feted with an international celebration of food and entertainment to mark the milestone day."
"KLM travelers will enjoy authentic Dutch klompendansers, Dutch coffee, chocolates and a giant windmill cake. Bagpipers will entertain Heathrow passengers on both American Airlines and British Airways as English teas and snacks are served. DFW will roll out its Texas hospitality and distribute commemorative cowboy hats with customized airline and DFW logos to all Heathrow and Amsterdam passengers. Departing first flights will be sent off by impersonators of Queen Elizabeth II, Royal Guardsmen, Dutch maids, as well as a Beatles cover band."
