Any news from LAX? When I was there about a month ago no food options other than the snack box. Maybe this has more to do with Gruesome Newsom's still draconian measures.

To answer my own question:
In September in the Admirals Club in LGA offered only a little bag with snacks, which was provided at the check-in (in line with the statement on the AA website regarding the current lounge operation). Of course the stunning view across the apron of LGA towards Manhattan skyline was still there
In October the Admirals Club in JFK had the bar open, as well packed food at the self service buffet available (noodle salads, cheese cubes and similar stuff) - so the Admirals Club in JFK (and most likely in LGA) is back to snacks and also bar service. Despite the website stating 'Only pre-packaged food and bottled water will be available, per local restrictions.'
The poster for the Guacamole was in a corner, but I was there outside their operation times.
The Flagship lounge in JFK is still closed.

Wow. The Admiral's Club offerings in ORD, while still far-behind the Pre-COVID days, are way better than what is being offered in the United Club @ ORD right now...only packaged junk food when I was there a few weeks ago.

An AC sign in one of JustSomeFlyer's photos says to "maintain space between others". Taken literally, that is blaming me for something outside my control. It's not my job to make sure stranger A stays 6 feet from stranger B. I think they should have said to "maintain space from others" or "maintain space between yourself and others".

LOL
Or they could have printed, "if you're worried about spacing during air travel, perhaps don't fly yet" haha. I'm guessing your grammar comment was a joke, and this is, as well.

The "yourself (and)" is understood, as that is to whom it is addressed.

The food at ORD looks like the same thing in PHX last week. Worked for us. Guac toast with prosciutto and cotija cheese.

MIA D30 at around 2:30pm just before boarding a Flagship F Transcon, really nothing in the way of food. A dismal bar selection and that was pretty much it. Honestly AA’s ground product for premium transcons these days is not good.

Luckily I spent the preceding 3 hours in the far superior Centurion Lounge.

Yeah, I just got an Amex Plat card. How much of a walk is it worth to go to the Centurion Lounge at MIA?

From where exactly? MIA Centurion Lounge is located right near gate D12 so if you’re in the D concourse (vast majority of AA flights) take the SkyTrain to station 1 and then head towards D12. It’s about a 3 to 5 minute trip from the train doors at station 1 to the Centurion Lounge doors depending on your walking speed and elevator luck.

Donno. I got three flights through MIA in the next month. Coming from DCA, I've got a two hour layover. Coming from MCO, I've got an hour. Not sure about my LAX trip.
