In our frequent travels through Miami International Airport, we've only been to the American Airlines Admirals Club on a handful of occasions. But what we have learned is that all Admirals Clubs are not created equal.
When you have a choice between three loungesas you do at MIA if you're flying Americanyou may just opt for the one closest to your gate. But, not so fast! There are pros and cons to these lounges: size, crowd, amenities, etc.
To help you navigate the sprawling land of AA at MIA, here's a little breakdown of what you'll find at each AA clubhouse:

It’s been a long time coming, but British Airways has recently added to its American destinations with its Heathrow-San Diego route which started June 1. When we flew it recently, what we were most interested in was what they were using as a lounge because, for all its faults, BA usually does lounges pretty well.
Turns out they’re using the American Airlines Admiral’s Club at SAN. Would it live up to its BA step-siblings? Only one way to find out.
The lounge is just through security in Terminal 2; as in, tucked away discreetly to the side behind security, so it’s a little confusing to find. Discreet is also the word for the doorway; there’s just a tiny plaque announcing its presence under the bell, and advising you that “proper dress” is required for access.

There are many things that we enjoy about airports, but even the best people watching eventually gets a little boring. That’s why we’re big fans of airport lounges, and the ability to sneak away from the riff raff and enjoy a little quite time. Now we’re looking forward to relaxing and "being green" at the same time, thanks to American Airlines’ new environmentallyl friendly Admirals Club.
Of course an eco-conscious lounge would be found at San Francisco International Airport, and the new lounge is part of American Airlines’ move into the newly renovated Terminal 2. The U-Haul trucks are expected to roll up to the airport next spring to switch everything over.
Airport lounges promise respite from the sad public seating at the gates and the unhealthy diet offerings of the terminal food courts. But of course, at a premium price. All week long at Jaunted we will be detailing what it costs to lounge at the big domestic airline lounges. Got any suggestions or tips? Let us know.
American Airlines Admirals Club
· How Much: $50 per person per day. If you join within 30 days of buying a day pass, they'll take that $50 off the cost of the annual membership fee of $500. Passengers flying first class domestically will have access to the lounge as long as they paid for a full-fare ticket. For those going abroad, first and business class tickets will get you and one guest into the lounge.
· Internet Access: Free WiFi thanks to T-Mobile Hot Spots. There's computers as well with high-speed Internet, just in case you left your laptop back at the office.
· Beverages: There's free coffee, tea, soda, and bottles of water. Alcohol is available, but unfortunately it's extra.
