Stunning Facility Provides Service and Seclusion

MIAMI, Nov. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — American Airlines has opened the doors to its newest Admirals Club(R) on Concourse D (near gate D 34) at the Miami International Airport (MIA).

As part of the MIA Admirals Club grand opening, American is offering a $50 discount for new memberships purchased now through Nov. 16, 2005.

Members and visitors will know they are in the vibrant city of Miami when they enter the Nautilus shell-shaped club, decorated with tropical blue and green accents. The club is accessible via customer entry screening on the Concourse level. A special ticketing desk at the entrance of the club is framed by a glass and stainless steel accent wall with fiber optics that slowly changes colors with shades of blue and green.

We also went to great lengths to ensure that this club truly reflects the dynamic culture and spirit of Miami.”

Open daily from 4:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m., the Club offers complimentary snacks, juice, tea, coffee and soft drinks.

The Admirals Club lounge also offers first rate premium services to members, including personal assistance with reservations, seat selection and upgrades, as well as boarding passes. The club is staffed with personnel fluent in Spanish, French and Portuguese to assist travelers.
