American Airlines created the first airport lounge as a retreat for customers in New York in 1939, and now it is reimagining the lounge experience in 2016 and beyond.
Scheduled to open in early 2017, the Flagship Dining experience will debut at JFK, offering complimentary, full-service tableside dining with seasonal menus. Fresh, locally-sourced ingredients will be curated by a New York-based Executive Chef.
Throughout 2017, Flagship Dining will be introduced at gateway cities that deliver American’s award-winning international three-class service on its Boeing 777-300ER – DFW, LAX and MIA.
While Flagship Dining will provide the same personalized service, each location will reflect the personal flavors of its own Executive Chef.
As part of a multi-million dollar renovation, American will introduce a new Flagship Lounge experience in six gateways, offering dramatic renovations, refined décor and ambiance, and additional healthy cold and hot food and beverage options as customers unwind before their flights.
