    The admirals club in Dfw terminal d has a smoking room . On the door is a sign saying 'pipe and cigar smoking forbidden'. What gives?

    Well that's dumb. Seems akin to putting a "Third gear forbidden" sign on a road.

    I see that quite often. I guess people think our stuff is more stinky.

    I've always been of the opinion that cigars and pipes have an aroma, a smell. But cigarettes stink.

    Reverse smokerism... I've been told in a bar full of people smoking nostril singeing cigarettes that I couldn't light up my stogie. Makes no sense

    The only explanation I can think of is the sheer volume of smoke a cigar puts out. Cigarette smoke is thin and just kinda dissipates, and I'd assume the lounge isn't THAT well ventilated. Get 10 cigar smokers in there and you won't be able to see a thing, haha.
    Smoke what you like, like what you smoke.

    I for 1 try to be respectful of that and check with bar employees before I light up...Luckily i live in an area where its not too bad.

    As far as this "lounge" I would have gone in and asked for more of an explanation. If I was unhappy with that then I may lodge a complaint and even try to send some email or written complaint to the airport. Then there is always social mediaoutlets to vent to to get more people aware to try to make a change. Will it work doubtful but its worth trying.

    Ventilation could be a concern. At a So Cal Traveling Herf event we were partying with 100+ other people in a lounge with no ventilation. I needed to go to the bathroom to get some fresh air in there LOL

    Re: Dfw airport smoking lounge

    I noticed that the first time I was in the Admirals Club in Terminal D and thought that was ridiculous. I mentioned that when I was called after letting my membership lapse, because that's not how the original smoking lounge in B was.

    A couple of years ago on my way to Argentina the club and smoking room were empty on a Sunday night, and I thought a nice Padron would put me in the right mind set for a 10+ hour flight. Went in, lit up, minding my own business, and of course was rudely interrupted by a disgusted AA employee who said if I didn't put it out I would be escorted out of the lounge by DFW police. But I was free to huff down as many Marlboros as I liked. They explained it as Cigar smoke is SOOOOO much more offensive to the delicate noses of these nicotine addicts, and that the ventilation system could not handle the immense and disgusting smoke of my cigar.

    BTW, the Smoking Bear Lounge which is called a "cigar lounge" at Denver International Concourse C is cigar friendly.

    I was just sitting here thinking that I could've sworn cigars were allowed there... but I was thinking of the Denver Airport. ANY indoor smoking is surprising to me, to be honest. Of course, I've also been living in one of the most anti-tobacco states in the country for the past seven years. Pretty sure you're not allowed to even think about tobacco in a California airport.
    Smoke what you like, like what you smoke.

    Re: Dfw airport smoking lounge

    asmartbull, I agree. The few times I've been able to kick back with a stick and a scotch before my flight have been great. And its funny to watch the people who come running in to suck down a heater after white-knuckling the last hour of their flight in, then are told there's a two drink minimum or somesuch.
