1. ORD
2. MIA
3. JFK
4. LAX
5. DFW

DFW actually has the most potential to improve, but man, their execution has been quite flawed so far.

Have you also added those to the poll? Thanks!

I voted for ORD before I made my first post on the thread. FT has been an excellent resource over the years... always happy to contribute!

My Thoughts:
  1. JFK. I think it's what a premium lounge should look like. It's an absolutely beautiful space with lots of wood and sweeping views of the tarmac. I also like the seating options. I will admit it does tend to get crowded but I like spending time here the most.
  2. DFW. There have been some issues with unfriendly employees and food not replaced quickly enough but again I love the space. Due to its size it also doesn't feel crowded and I love the high ceilings and windows. They also have better alcohol than other lounges.
  3. ORD. I don't like the design much, it's not as open and it makes the lounge looked cramped. But the tables in front of the windows are amazing. Views of the runway, tarmac etc. Plus the food is very good and the front desk staff friendly.
  4. LAX. It's too small. I know that's not AA's fault but a lounge this small can't feel premium. The views are nice though.
  5. MIA. The FL looks just like an Admirals Club only bigger. This one is a real let down.

Start crying, 'cause it won't be open by December 17. :cool:

Do you have Priority Pass lounge membership or Amex Centurion Lounge access?

I imagine many are eager to resume Flagship First Dining (FFD) experiences!

By the way, the Priority Pass Lounge in MIA North Terminal ( Turkish Airlines Lounge ) is closed due to COVID. If the OP has Priority Pass, he could only use his PP at the "Corona Beach House" pub restaurant. He could clear double security for the Avianca Lounge in the South Terminal or the contract lounge in the Central Terminal but definitely not worth it.

AMEX Centurion Lounge ( if the OP has AMEX Platinum ) or the American Airlines Admirals Club near D30 are the other options.

My favorite FL is any one that's open.........

IMHO fwiw:
MIA- Best overall lounge experience. Lots of corners to tuck away into. Great quiet space.
ORD- Really nothing special. Still great service, though. No Flagship dining.
DFW- Best Flagship dining (from food, service, layout), and amazing/sweeping runway views
NYC- Nice dining. Coziest flagship experience.

I do love the bridge at NYC, almost always no one there and bartender will let you taste through the wine portfolio.

Reima Dec 17, 20 6:50 am

The only one I have been in so far is MIA so I cannot compare it to the others as yet.
