Same for RDU. They ARE open, but if someone is there for the 1st time, they may not even notice it's an amenity they can use.
anyone see other locations missing the "showers" being open but NOT listed on https://www.aa.com/i18n/travel-info/...-locations.jsp?

Boo, AX has been an absolute zoo and additional timing/trying to get on the train at A is always a pain with it being relatively full.

Maybe I'm missing it but I've seen about a million worse things than a guy taking his shoes off (with socks on) and propping his legs up on his own suitcase.

One time at the LHR T5 F lounge, some dude with his BA Gold tag on his fancy brand backpack, took over a whole sofa and slept there with his shoes still on kicking around. Makes me wonder..

The stench of his feet was enough to make you gag. If you think kicking your shoes off in admirals club isn't an issue... you don't belong there.

I'm searching for updates on the new Terminal A opening date but only vague "summer" references were available at the site.
I know where it will be in the next level up of the concourse from searching around in April....but anyone have reliable updates or timelines?

Hi all - Has anyone used the LGA club showers? I'm assuming they're in decent shape, since the lounge, itself, is fairly new. But - are they actually open and able to be reserved?

An upcoming trip would greatly benefit if they are available for use... but I don't want to get there and find them "under construction" or some other nonsense.
