A new Flagship Lounge and Flagship First Dining facilities have been opened by American Airlines at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
American becomes the only domestic carrier to offer a sit-down dining experience at LAX. The airline’s renovations to its Flagship Lounges and its Flagship First Dining are part of a $200m 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 Flagship Lounge and Dining in Terminal 4.
American is the largest carrier at LAX with more than 200 daily flights on peak days to 70 destinations on five continents.
Since 2015, American has added services to 24 new destinations from LAX, including Sydney, Auckland, Hong Kong, Tokyo Haneda and, as of last November, non-stop service to Beijing.
Customers travelling in First Class on qualifying international flights or on non-stop transcontinental flights to JFK have exclusive access to Flagship First Dining, located within the lounge. The tableside restaurant experience will offer customers complimentary, full-service dining with seasonal, locally-inspired dishes and drinks.
In addition to the LAX lounge, this year new Flagship Lounges have opened in Miami (MIA), New York Kennedy (JFK) and Chicago O’Hare (ORD), and Flagship First Dining has opened at MIA and JFK.
