Visitor Comments

I just went to this lounge last weekend because my wife happened to have two free passes. Frankly we were bewildered as to why anyone would pay to use the Admirals club lounges. A single membership depending on flier status runs anywhere from $350-$500/year. You walk in there and it seems like you get almost nothing except maybe a cup of average coffee. You have to pay for alcoholic beverages. You have to pay (and pay a lot) for real food at a cash food bar. I'm talking standard very high airport-type prices such as roughly $12 for a burger! The only free "snack" is that bulk cheap pretzel snack mix. I've been to other airlines' lounges where they had free buffets of food with a substantial selection. Honestly I can't understand why anyone would pay for American Airlines Admirals Club membershipBrian h 14:19, 17 July 2012 (UTC)
