Drivers Say New American Airlines Headquarters Creating Dangerous Glare
Posted On: Nov 17, 2018
Along Texas State Highway 360 on the edge of Fort Worth, construction is wrapping up on the new American Airlines headquarters. But as employees wait for it to open, some commuters are raising concerns over the windowed exterior they say is blinding their morning commute.
Nathan Klein says the glare is distracting enough to slow his daily drive.
“It looks like a big square camera flash that doesn’t turn off. It just obliterates your field of vision,” said Nathan Klein.
Klein managed to snap a picture Wednesday. He shared it to a community Facebook where dozens of others shared similar experiences.
“I think it’s the way the building’s angled towards the southeast to where the reflection of light and the sun coming over the horizon hits it just the right way,” said Klein.
In a statement, American Airlines said, “We were recently made aware of the occurrence and will continue to monitor it.”
Meanwhile, Klein is filing a complaint with TXDOT and hoping something can be done to remedy the situation so that he and other drivers stay safe.
