American Airlines to Temporarily Rename Flagship Lounges Prior to Launching New Lounge Concept
As part of its plan to renovate existing Flagship Lounges, offer new dining options, and add new Flagship Lounges in several cities, American Airlines is temporarily renaming its current Flagship Lounges until the transformation has been completed.
The temporary name will be International First Class Lounge and the change will go into effect at the beginning of December.
Currently, passengers traveling on American or a oneworld partner in international first class or first class on American’s premium transcon routes linking New York with San Francisco and Los Angeles as well as AAdvantage members with Executive Platinum status traveling on a long-haul flight and those passengers with Emerald-level status on another oneworld airline have access to the Flagship Lounge.
Once renovations have been completed at a particular lounge, it will reopen as a Flagship Lounge and American will then offer access to two additional groups of passengers, those flying on American in business class on long-haul and premium transcon routes.
In addition to the current Flagship Lounges in Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York, American will open new Flagship Lounges in Dallas/Fort Worth, Miami, and Philadelphia.
