Admirals Club lounges are ready when you are

Starting Nov. 17, Admirals Club lounges will reopen at John Wayne Airport (SNA), Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) and Tampa International Airport (TPA). With the three new lounges, American has reopened 24 lounges across 20 U.S. cities with food and drink service modified in ways that protect the well-being of American’s team members as well as customers as they get ready to take to the skies for the holidays.

American began reopening lounges in June, with robust enhancements, all part of the airline’s multitiered Clean Commitment in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Admirals Club enhancements help protect well-being of customers and team members.

Sip on wine or bubbles in the club

Starting Nov. 30, American is toasting to the holiday season with premium wines such as Collusion Cabernet Sauvignon and Marine Dubard Le Mont Sauvignon Blanc or Bernard Lonclas Selection champagne available for purchase by the bottle in select cities. For customers looking to explore their palate a bit more, wine flights are available in 2-ounce pours ranging from $11 to $13.

American offers a broad selection of wines so that every wine lover can find something they enjoy when traveling. Admirals Club wine menus are carefully selected by a dedicated team of wine experts and the airline’s partnership with master sommelier Bobby Stuckey.

Wine flights available beginning Nov. 30.

  • A face covering requirement for all customers and team members in the lounge. These can only be briefly removed to eat or drink.
  • Menus accessible using QR codes.
  • Glass shields at reception and service desks.
  • Foot-operated door openers to enable touchless operation of restroom doors (where feasible).
  • Purell Hand Sanitizer stations for customers.
