American Airlines has officially opened its new Flagship Lounge and remodeled Admirals Club at Dallas Fort Worth Terminal D and with it, the airline has unveiled its new and improved Flagship First Dining experience too.
The American Airlines Admirals Club in Rio De Janeiro is in Terminal 2 of the city’s Galeão International Airport (GIG). The lounge was refurbished back in 2016 as part of a wider (and still ongoing) Admirals Club renovation project and here I take a look inside and see what the club has to offer.
American Airlines says that it's preparing for "a big summer" in Charlotte and by that it means that it plans to add services to/from its hub and that it has just reopened a renovated Charlotte Admirals Club at Concourse B.
American Airlines has been paying a bit more attention to its lounges in recent years and its the Flagship lounges which have probably seen the biggest changes. Not all that long ago the American Airlines Flagship Lounge at LAX was open only to First Class passengers (international and transcon only) and top-tier oneworld elites but not any more.
Back in August American Airlines reopened its arrivals lounge at Heathrow Terminal 3 after a 5 month refurbishment project and the promotional photos of the new space looked really good. The old arrivals lounge was small and not really a very relaxing place to be if you needed to kill some time before heading in to London so I was very keen to see what the new space was like.
A fact that quite a few American Airlines frequent flyers seem to forget is that American Airlines has an Arrivals lounge at Heathrow T3 and, if you're flying in on a long haul flight, it can be a good place to freshen up and get a bit to eat before heading on into the city. Since 29 February the arrivals lounge has been closed for renovations (as part of a broader lounge renovation project that American started in 2015) but now it has reopened and is once again ready for use.
Something that not many people may remember is that, while the Admirals Club at the D-gates in Dallas Fort Worth Airport (DFW) is the big...
The American Airlines Flagship lounges are the airline's effort at international First Class lounges. They're a rare thing in the American Airlines lounge portfolio as there are only four of them in total - three in the US (New York JFK, Los Angeles and Chicago O'Hare) and just the one lounge overseas (London Heathrow, which I reviewed here).
On our way from Aruba to New York, Joanna and I had a short layover at Miami Airport - so I thought I'd take a look and see how the Admirals Club near Gate D30 was faring. I know this club quite well as it's where I've been stopping off on all my trip to/from the Caribbean for the last 10 years...and not that much has changed in that time.
American Airlines has two lounges at Heathrow's Terminal 3 - An Admiral's Club (Business Class Lounge) and a Flagship Lounge (First Class Lounge). Both are accessed trough the same set of glass doors and both are unspectacular. The Flagship Lounge is open to all OneWorld Emerald card holders (American Airlines Executive Platinum, British Airways Gold etc...) and anyone with a First Class ticket for travel on the day of entry.
