American Airlines celebrates the opening of flagship First Dining and Flagship Lounge at Los Angeles International Airport

American Airlines celebrated the opening of its new Flagship Lounge and Flagship First Dining facilities at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), offering customers several options to dine, relax and get ready for long journeys.

With the opening of Flagship First Dining, American customers can now enjoy a sit-down meal before boarding their flights — the first product of its kind at LAX. The newly renovated Flagship Lounge offers customers high-quality food and drink options and the space to unwind while waiting for their flight.

American’s renovations to its Flagship Lounges and its Flagship First Dining are part of a $200 million 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.

Flagship Lounge

The Flagship Lounge at LAX allows customers flying in international First Class or Business Class or on nonstop transcontinental flights to New York’s John F. Kennedy (JFK) to unwind, work or refresh before their flight with quiet rooms and showers. Customers will enjoy a range of food options including a robust hot and cold food buffet and a chef action station with freshly made-to-order dishes. They can pair their meals with premium wine, champagne, and spirits, or a refreshing drink from our “build your own cocktail” station.

Customers traveling in First Class on qualifying international flights or on nonstop transcontinental flights to JFK will have exclusive access to Flagship First Dining, located within the Flagship Lounge. The tableside restaurant experience will offer customers complimentary, full-service dining with seasonal, locally-inspired dishes and drinks.

The LAX menu will feature ingredients from local purveyors and American’s signature Flagship Burger, as well as specialty cocktails designed by renowned New York mixologist Pamela Wiznitzer.

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.
