The new American Airlines Flagship Lounge at Miami airport opened late November 2017. Exclusively reserved for international premium and elite passengers and premium transcontinental passengers bound for Los Angeles, the Flagship Lounge Miami opened on the heels of the New York JFK and Chicago locations.
Spanning over 29,000 square feet, with seating for 475 customers, the expansive space—American’s largest Flagship Lounge so far—is outfitted with a variety of seating options catering to work, rest, and relaxation, all with a power outlet within reach.
Amenities include a full complimentary buffet with a broad selection of salads, hot entrees, and desserts; a self-service selection of wines, liquor, and spirits; and shower suites with CO Bigelow bath amenities.
Within the lounge is Flagship Dining, a private 20-seat full-service restaurant reserved exclusively for American Airlines’ international First Class customers (and off-limits to passengers traveling on partner airlines and oneworld elites.) In this sanctuary, guests visiting the lounge after 2pm may enjoy complimentary multi-course meals and a full bar staffed by expert bartenders. The menu, which uses locally-sourced ingredients, will rotate seasonally.
