American Airlines celebrated the opening of its new Flagship Lounge and Flagship First Dining facilities at Los Angeles International Airport, offering customers new options to dine, relax and get ready for long journeys.
American’s renovations to its Flagship Lounges and its Flagship First Dining are part of a $200 million investment in the luxury travel experience. At LAX, dedicated investments include a new Admirals Club in Terminal 5, a refurbished Admirals Club in Terminal 4 and, now, the new 14,500sq ft Flagship Lounge and Dining in Terminal 4.
“The opening of the Flagship Lounge and Flagship First Dining are the latest evidence of our increasingly strong position in Los Angeles,” Suzanne Boda, American’s Senior Vice President – Los Angeles said. “We are setting ourselves apart from the competition by becoming the only domestic carrier to offer a sit-down dining experience at LAX.”
The Flagship Lounge at LAX allows customers flying in international First Class or Business Class or on nonstop transcontinental flights to New York’s John F. Kennedy (JFK) to unwind, work or refresh before their flight with quiet rooms and showers. Customers will enjoy a range of food options including a robust hot and cold food buffet and a chef action station with freshly made-to-order dishes. They can pair their meals with premium wine, champagne, and spirits, or a refreshing drink from our “build your own cocktail” station.
Customers traveling in First Class on qualifying international flights or on nonstop transcontinental flights to JFK will have exclusive access to Flagship First Dining, located within the Flagship Lounge. The tableside restaurant experience will offer customers complimentary, full-service dining with seasonal, locally-inspired dishes and drinks.
The LAX menu will feature ingredients from local purveyors and American’s signature Flagship Burger, as well as specialty cocktails designed by renowned New York mixologist Pamela Wiznitzer.
This latest lounge adds to the airline’s expanding new lounge network, helping elevate the premium experience for its highest-spending passengers.
