American Airlines Going BIG On Flagship Lounge Upgrades & Expansion

American Airlines is making a major expansion to the airports where they offer their Flagship lounge service. They’re also adding Admirals Club locations and upgrading the Flagship offering in a major way. I think you’re going to like it.

And, I’m […]

American Airlines Revamping Food Offerings In Admirals Clubs and Flagship Lounges

Lounge strategy is an interesting game for the airlines.  They charge for access to a big chunk of customers, but there’s a chunk that’s equally as big who gain access for free due to alliance status, etc.  A few years ago, American Airlines charted a different path from United and Delta.  Their competitors had made small improvements to their club’s complimentary offerings, but nothing very exciting.  But, hey, you’re getting something for free, right? American chose the path of rolling out food for purchase that was considerably better than any […]
