American Airlines has officially opened the latest of its revamped Flagship Lounges, with a 14,500 square foot facility at Los Angeles International airport.
The lounge is available for business and first class passengers travelling on international flights, or on nonstop transcontinental services to New York’s JFK, and features showers, quiet rooms, a hot and cold buffet station, and a “chef action station” for freshly made-to-order dishes.
In addition those travelling in first class can access the Flagship First Dining area, for a full service tableside dining experience, with dishes including the Flagship Burger, and cocktails designed by New York mixologist Pamela Wiznitzer.
American Airlines opened the first of its new Flagship Lounges at New York’s JFK in May last year, and has since added locations at Miami and Chicago O’Hare, with Flagship First Dining facilities at Miami and JFK.
AA is the largest carrier at LAX, with over 200 daily flights on peak days to 70 destinations. Last year the airline announced plans to invest US$1.6 billion at the airport.
