    Those who are traveling with family for a couple of weeks on AA...or for their major vacation of the year....may find this of value (considering a day pass is $50...the $99 one would work for both the outbound and return trips at a minimum while offering cost savings...) :)

    I like this. I got a "we want you back" offer from Qantas Club, best price was $800 for 4 years. I don't fly often enough to warrant paying that :)

    Good move by AA to create a win-win for their bottom line and the customer.

    I may be blind but i don't see it spelled out in the press release.

    Is this 99 per person? Or is it like a real membership where you can guest someone?

    AA.com says "no membership card will be issued". So if you are not flying AA on part of your trip or at all, how would you access the lounges?

    In between buying in and getting my card, I used my AA number. So maybe it'll be tied to that.

    You would need to drink a lot to get that sort of money back if you only do a few flights. :)

    I seem to recall you, I and a mate having 12 vodkas and cokes each, one afternoon when there were a few delays :)

    It takes time to make up an Admirals Club card. IIRC, it took about a month after I joined for the first time to get it. Until then, I carried the receipt that I got for joining, but most clubs just took my AAdvantage number and checked it in their computer. The only exception was the HNL club, which is a joint club between AA and Qantas. When I was there, it was being operated by Qantas, and they did not have access to the AA computers. I showed the receipt and they let me in.
