American Airlines, which has been investing heavily in updating its lounges, announced Wednesday it is shuttering three of them.

The lounges in question are the Admirals Clubs at Bradley International Airport in Hartford, Connecticut; Piedmont Triad International Airport in Greensboro, North Carolina; and Simón Bolívar International Airport in Caracas, Venezuela.

The closures are effective as of October 15 and the airline said the move comes as a result of cost-cutting.

“These decisions are never easy, and we must always ensure we are striking the right balance of providing the level of service our customers have come to expect while keeping our costs in-check,” the airline said in a statement.

American is also shutting down one of its two Admirals Clubs at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York although that closure is taking place in order to expand its Flagship Lounge at the airport.
