American Airlines Flagship Lounge ORD Chicago O'Hare

This opened September 13, 2017.  I believe this lounge rivals the American Express Centurion Lounge.  There are upgraded good options compared to the regular American Lounge.  For example, I had wild rice salad and soba noodles.  Glenn had sushi.  There were many cold and hot options.  With my food I enjoyed a glass of Bollinger champagne.

 There were many comfortable seating options, including a few stools to elevate tired and swollen feet and many charging stations.

I did not view the shower options which are available, but the ladies' room was elegant with the typical Bigelow products.

There were plenty of attendants available to help with flight issues and they seemed to need some extra work.

For takeaway, there were some simple but welcome candy and nut options with wax paper bags if you want a treat for your flight -- skittles, m&m's, candy covered raisins and pralines.

The only thing that is missing compared to the Centurion lounge, is the special amenity at most Centurion Lounges -- for example, manicures or massage at Dallas.

As a reminder, the following passengers have access to Flagship Lounges:
  • Passengers traveling in oneworld longhaul international first and business class same day
  • Passengers traveling in first class and business class on American’s premium transcontinental routes, including from New York to Los Angeles, New York to San Francisco, and Miami to Los Angeles
  • American Executive Platinum, Platinum Pro, and Platinum members traveling on a longhaul international itinerary, regardless of the class of service
  • All non-American AAdvantage oneworld Emerald and Sapphire members traveling on any oneworld flight, even if it’s domestic
As of this date, only JFK and ORD have flagship lounges, but several more are planned.
