Miami Lounge Advice

Hi all

Heading home from MIA this evening on the A380.

Flying club and am Silver EC member, anyone got any advice on lounges? Never flown out of MIA before so is there just the one lounge to use? Or multiple? If so what’s the best?

Thanks in advance!

Until the Premium Lounge in E gets refurbished later this year, you probably want the Flagship lounge by D30. Here's one (of the many) threads on the issue.

Thanks for the reply!

As someone who has never flown out of MIA before just to check is it easy enough to switch between concourses in MIA? If we were to go to that lounge? Cause BA use E am I right?

E is the nominated lounge for BA flights and it's right by E security, taking the lifts up to it. D30 involves a bit of walking, but just follow the signs, there is a connecting corridor.

Highly recommend the Flagship.

The E lounge was the play before; not because it's nice (it's not; very old) but because it had self serve Tattinger and ocasionally had OK food). D to E transfers are very easy and vice versa in Miami, only a bit of walking. The Flagship lounge is very nice; showers are wonderful; and there is good food and self serve Bollinger as well as decent spirits. It's located at D30

You can clear security at D to minimize the back and forth walking. Then follow the signs to E post lounge, they're connected airside

Highly recommend the AA Flagship at D30. The food is excellent and so is the seating. The E lounge is very outdated and the food is terrible (warmers of Cuban sandwiches and overcooked pasta), but the liquor is good.

I travel out of this airport every week. Trust me, the AA Flagship is worth a visit.
