"We were always known for being
down at the bottom, but we had a jump
of about 41 points at one period," he said.
"JD Power a number of times has really

and provide more information
for travelers.

Dallas sees big love for
Wi-Fi

Love Field partnered with Boingo
Wireless and launched free unlimited
Wi-Fi in June 2018. Travelers are given
the option of purchasing faster speeds if
they wish. Since the launch, Perry said
there have been zero complaints.
"It was a simple f ix, but it was
something that our customers have been
asking for for a long time," he said. "It
was kind of vindication of everything

terminal in 2014 when we reopened the

Airport Service Quality Award for
North America by Airports Council
International.
Chris Perr y, communications

them from getting the top score.
"What kept bringing our score down
was we were one of the last airports to get
on the free Wi-Fi train," he said. "You
had it for about 30 minutes, but if you
were delayed or you really needed to sit
down and do some work, it didn't work
very well."

50 largest airports in terms of commercial
traffic in the U.S. Perry said the airport
is opening additional concessions within
the year to give passengers more space
to wait for a f light without crowding
the gates.
Given the small size of the Love Field
terminal, passengers are always within a
five minute walk of their gate.
"We're always looking for those little
ways that we can continue improving,"
he said.
Love Field is also utilizing new
