    American Utilizes Partnerships to Gain Access to More Lounges
    Plus Coming Soon: New and Updated Lounges with Complimentary Wi-Fi for All

    FORT WORTH, Texas, Nov. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- American Airlines is enhancing Admirals Club memberships as members gain access to more lounges worldwide than ever before. Through expanded access agreements with select oneworld® and other partner airlines, Admirals Club members will now be able to experience premium lounges in destinations where American flies, but does not have an Admirals Club, including Seattle, Portland, Budapest, Delhi, Beijing and Shanghai.
    "As an airline, we are focused on finding new ways to enhance the travel experience for our customers. Today, we open doors for club members in over 40 Admirals Club locations, 33 Qantas Club locations, and 10 partner clubs worldwide," said Nancy Knipp, American's President Admirals Club. "With these new agreements, our airline partners are helping us add value to our membership by providing club service in select new cities where we do not currently have an Admirals Club."
    As part of American's arrangements, Admirals Club members can gain access to these lounges by presenting a valid Admirals Club membership card along with a same day boarding pass on a flight operated and marketed by American Airlines. For a complete list of lounges and access policies, visit www.aa.com/flybetter.
    With this new membership enhancement, American reinforces its commitment to provide a differentiated, modern customer experience with a distinct focus on delivering what high-value customers expect most – world class products and services, including offering new menu items, enhanced premium cabin amenities and upcoming aircraft deliveries. In fact, between 2007 and 2011, American expects to invest over $5.5 billion in new aircraft and onboard and facility enhancement projects to improve the customer experience.

    The arrangement for Helsinki is especially good, as it explicitly "locks in" the use of the Finnair Lounge for arrivals, as well as for departures :)

    Dear AA: Time to update the boilerplate language. At this point, you either have spent the $5.5 or you haven't.
