    I have an upcoming 7-hour layover in DFW with access to all OW lounges based on COS. While I have always just done a tour of the ACs in the different terminals, is there any reason to try out the BA and QF lounges? Are there any others I'm missing?

    +2 to the DFW Centurion Lounge if you have AMEX Plat.

    The DFW Admirals clubs are OK, nothing special. I only go there lately if I need an AAngel. I've not tried any of the other OW clubs.

    +3 on the Centurion Lounge for Amex Plat. I was waffling on keeping the card next year, now, not so much :) Best club at DFW that I've used.

    Other than that I've been using The Club at DFW (Priority Pass).

    I agree with the above. I was at DFW briefly today and stopped by the Admirals Club to get help with a ticket but then went to the Amex Centurion lounge. It's free with Amex Plat; I think it's $50 if you have some other Amex card. For a long layover like yours, it might even be worth the $50 -- the quality of the included food and drinks is far better than any domestic lounge (though I haven't been to BA or QF in DFW). Here's a link for more info: http://thecenturionlounge.com/location/DFW/about

    There are no QF/BA lounges in DFW. There is a third party lounge that provides access to pax of BA and QF, which I understand operates a First room for BA flights (none needed for QFs sole flight).
    From all reports it is a fairly rudimentary lounge.

    I also believe that as this is a third-party lounge, oneworld COS benefits don't apply.

    Depends on what you want:
    Showers - A AC
    View - D AC
    Food/beverage - Centurion lounge (not OW)

    I toured the ACs (mainly A and D since I have a dirty habit), and did enter the BA/QF lounges, but they weren't very good. And my Chilean AmEx Platinum card didn't get me into the Centurion Lounge.

    I've only visited the AA AC lounges at DFW, and I'd say stick with the other suggestions above. If you do venture into AA territory, note that clubs in terminals A and D have smoking rooms (if you smoke, great; if not, others have complained about the smell so you know to avoid it). Food is microwaved and mediocre, but the bartenders are always extremely accommodating. The A terminal club has a tendency to over pour alcohol from my experience. D club has a nicer layout in my opinion.

    The only real OW lounges are the 4 AA AC's. D is likely the best. Term A, C, D AC's all have showers, but as pointed out A has the side jets and rain fall overhead. Term A used to be the international term before D. D is newest. For bar area, I like Term C the best, however.

    But for the QF lounge - 3rd party - since it is not a OW club you have to be on the QF flight to use. But it does had good food offerings. Soups, salads, sandwiches, entre dishes, self pour wine, order/served cocktails. While the lounge has multiple rooms - the interconnected rooms are open for the QF flight in the evening.

    I flew the QF flight 2 months ago and the food offerings were almost as good as the OW J or F lounge at LAX for example.

    But for OW you only have AA lounges which don't really have any food - except food for purchase.
