American Airlines Flagship Lounge Single Visit Pass For $150
…but the capacity of the specific Flagship Lounge will determine whether a Single Visit Pass will be available; a guest is not included with a Single Visit Pass; and you must be a minimum of 21 years of age to purchase and use a Single Visit Pass.
The definition of a single visit is neither clear nor specific.
Also, an eligible flight includes any departing flight or arriving flight which is marketed or operated by American Airlines or marketed and operated by any airline which is a member of the oneworld alliance. Same-day priority verification cards will be accepted.
American Airlines is bringing celebrated chefs to Flagship Lounges and Flagship First Dining to serve up delicious and creative menu offerings. This program is in partnership with the James Beard Foundation, which is an organization with a mission to celebrate, support, and elevate the people behind the food culture of the United States; and champion a standard of good food anchored in talent, equity, and sustainability.
Each location will feature an acclaimed local chef with offerings designed exclusively for their hometown Flagship Lounge — but in the meantime, what was offered in 2019 for breakfast included smoked salmon with sliced hard boiled eggs, sliced tomatoes, sliced red peppers, and capers; mango and Brazilian nut salad; seasonal fresh fruit; a Venezuelan guasacaca salad; and little plates of Serrano asparagus.
Why I Would Not Pay $150.00 for a Single Visit Pass to a Flagship Lounge
I remember back in 2009 when an employee of Delta Air Lines who was associated with Delta Sky Clubs asked why I would not consider becoming a member — sort of a spontaneous survey in person — and I responded with the following reasons:
I rarely arrive for a flight long enough in advance to spend enough time to enjoy the amenities of a Sky Club
The public washrooms at airports are typically reasonably maintained, so I do not need to use a washroom inside of a Sky Club; and I would personally rather shower at home or in a hotel room than at an airport lounge
The miscellaneous items available do not interest me, as I:
Typically do not need to print any documents — although some exceptions have occurred
Have no interest in putting a golf ball — if a lounge is equipped with a putting green
Do not hold or attend formal meetings at airports
Usually do not read the newspapers and magazines available
…but perhaps the overall experience of the Flagship Lounge at Miami International Airport will improve significantly once it reopens on Tuesday, September 28, 2021.
As for how long one can stay as a “single visit” in a Flagship Lounge on a Single Visit Pass, I have no idea. That may likely be determined by the representative who checks one into the Flagship Lounge; so I doubt one can stay all day long…
