NEW YORK, Aug. 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Today, American Airlines opened the doors to its newest Admirals Club facility at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport. The club is part of Phase 1 of American’s new, state-of-the-art $1.1 billion terminal.

The new Admirals Club lounge covers 11,300 square feet, seating 183 people. The Club brings a slice of the Big Apple to travelers from around the world. Capturing the distinctive history and essence of New York, the Admirals Club is adorned with vintage photographs depicting everything from the excavation of the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to historic games at Yankee Stadium, Ebbetts Field and the Polo Grounds. The floor in the shower facility is embedded with replicas of New York City manhole covers.

“We are pleased to open this exceptional Admirals Club facility, which provides state-of-the-art amenities to busy travelers,” said Nancy Knipp, Managing Director of Premium Services for American. “We’re providing a lounge that offers members a place to escape before or after a flight to work or relax, away from the hustle and bustle of the airport.
