American Airlines opens new flagship lounge at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport

Flagship Lounge, Flagship First Dining and renovated Admirals Club now open in Terminal D at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport

The US mega-carrier, American has opened its newest Flagship Lounge, located in Terminal D at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW).

“It made sense for us to go all-in on the Flagship experience at our largest hub,” said Kurt Stache, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Loyalty and Sales for American. “More of American’s premium customers fly through DFW than anywhere else, and we think they’ll agree the Flagship experience is unlike any other.”
The Flagship Lounge
Customers travelling in Flagship First and Flagship Business with the carrier will be able to use the new facilities of the lounge to refresh, unwind or work before their flight with quiet spaces for taking a rest, lounge-style seating, luxury showers and ample wireless chargers. There is also a range of hot and cold entrees including Texas brisket in adobo sauce, Korean-style chicken wings and sushi. Also, there will be a rotating chef-action station with made-to-order omelettes and Asian-style pancakes. 

Flagship First Dining
Flagship First Dining is American’s high-end, sit-down dining experience located within the Flagship Lounge and is available exclusively for customers travelling in Flagship First. Guests will experience a complimentary, fine-dining restaurant experience with an array of appetizers, entrees and desserts. The DFW Flagship Dining menu features the flavours of Texas with double-smoked beef brisket, slow-braised pork shoulder and Texas pecan pie, as well as premium wines picked by master sommelier Desmond Echavarrie, Krug Champagne, signature cocktails and local craft beer.

American will also launch the plant-based Impossible Burger as an alternative to its signature Flagship Burger, providing even more food choices to its customers. The vegetarian option will be available at DFW first, and there are plans to expand it to additional Flagship First Dining locations later this year.

Admirals Club
American’s renovated Admirals Club lounge in Terminal D has also opened, providing customers with an updated modern look, more power outlets, access to showers and space to relax. Guests will have access to snacks such as hummus, veggies, soup and the signature make-your-own guacamole station, as well as complimentary beer, wine and spirits. The Admirals Club lounge will also feature local craft beers for sale from breweries in Dallas, Fort Worth and Houston.

This June, American will also launch an exclusive label from master sommelier Bobby Stuckey as its complimentary wine.
