American Airlines to Start Reopening Lounges in September

American Airlines has announced that it will start reopening its premium Flagship Lounges in September. The first location to open its doors to travelers will be Miami (MIA). The other four locations should reopen soon after, throughout Fall 2021. American also has locations at Chicago (ORD), Dallas (DFW), Los Angeles (LAX), and New York City (JFK). Flagship First Dining locations are also reopening, expect for LAX.

It has been almost a year and a half since American Airlines shut down its premium lounge network due the Covid-19 outbreak back in March 2020.

Besides the reopening news, One Mile a a Time also reports about exciting updates to the Flagship Lounge access policy, with an official announcement coming later this summer.

To access Flagship Lounges you must have a First or Business class  ticket for long-haul travel on American or its Oneworld partners, or on a qualifying premium transcontinental  ticket. Select American and Alaska Airlines elite members can also access the Flagship Lounge. Plus Concierge Key members get access when traveling the same day on any flight marketed and operated by American or a oneworld airline (regardless of cabin).


It’s another sign that travel is getting back to normal. American Airlines will first reopen its Flagship Lounge in Miami in September 2021, and then the rest of its Flagship Lounges and Flagship First Dining locations. We might see more access to these lounges once the announcement is made later this summer.

Based in NYC. Points/miles enthusiast for years and actively writing about it for the last two years at Danny the Deal Guru. I'm always looking out for deals. Making a few bucks is always nice, but the traveling is by far the best part of this business.
