American Airlines said it will renovate existing Flagship Lounges, offer new dining options, and add new Flagship Lounges in several cities.

The Fort Worth-based carrier will add a Flagship Dining option in three cities, New York, Los Angeles, and Miami, starting in early 2017. Open to international and transcontinental first-class passengers exclusively, Flagship Dining will offer “chef-driven creations and local flavors” prior to departure.

The airline plans to renovate existing Flagship Lounges in Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York, and will open new Flagship Lounges in Dallas, Miami, and Philadelphia although a timetable for the opening of the new lounges has not yet been announced.

In addition, while currently, only first-class international and transcontinental passengers have access to the Flagship Lounge, American will expand access to include business-class passengers on those routes.
