American Airlines has re-opened its refurbished Flagship Lounge for first class passengers at Miami International Airport. It first opened in 2000, but was closed in 2002 as part of cost-cutting measures post 9-11.
Located in Concourse E on the departure level directly beyond the security checkpoint, the Flagship Lounge can accommodate up to 62 guests and features a business centre with two work stations, two Lenovo personal computers with high-speed internet access, a copier, fax and printing service.
The 3600 sq ft lounge is open between 4.30am and 11.30pm daily, for first class international customers traveling to Europe, Asia, Central and South America and Mexico City, full-fare first class transcontinental customers traveling on three-class aircraft, and qualifying Oneworld customers.
Complimentary wines, liquors and other beverages are on offer, as well as a lounge buffet serving light meals throughout the day.
Four spa-like shower facilities, with towels, shampoo, body gels and blow-dryers, are available for use.
Entertainment facilities include DirecTV, newspapers and magazines for use in the club, and complimentary T-Mobile wireless access.
Kurt Stache, American Airline’s vice president and general sales manager said: “It is our pleasure to offer our eligible First Class and qualifying Oneworld customers another oasis amid the hustle and bustle of major airport terminals by providing amenities for productivity, comfort and convenience.”
American offers Flagship Lounges in four other locations: Chicago O’Hare International Airport, London Heathrow Airport, New York JFK Airport and Los Angeles International Airport.
American Airlines also recently opened an Admirals Club lounge for business class passengers travelling through Washington Dulles. See online news, February 4.
