What is Admirals Club membership?

Admirals Club is American Airlines’ network of airport lounges. With an Admirals Club membership, individuals have access to over 50 Admirals Club lounges and 60 partner lounges worldwide. These lounges provide a space to relax instead of waiting at your gate, as well as light food/drink and free Wi-Fi. Access is granted based on membership, elite status, cardholder status, or specific ticketed class of service.

How much does it cost to join Admirals Club?

Membership pricing depends on a couple of factors: your membership type, whether or not you want an individual or household membership, and whether you are purchasing it new or renewing. The price ranges from $550 for a 1-year Executive Platinum member individual membership to $650 for a 1-year standard AAdvantage member individual membership.

Household memberships can range from $1,150 to $1,250. See our full membership pricing chart in this article.

Admirals Club terms of service state: “Membership includes access by either immediate family members (spouse or domestic partner and children under eighteen (18) years of age) or up to two (2) guests. Access by immediate family members or guests applies only when such individuals accompany the Member.” This is, of course, subject to capacity restrictions.

    The article reflects the closing of Greensboro and Hartford but those cities are still dotted on the map. Thanks!

    Reply

    • Hi there – this was updated 12/14 on our end and from what we’re seeing, the map reflects the content correctly with both Greensboro and Hartford removed.

      Would you mind taking a screenshot and e-mailing me ([email protected]) so I can see where the discrepancy is here and try to fix it? Thanks so much!!! 🙂

  2. Erin, it would be helpful for other readers if you noted which airports have Flagship First Lounges. These lounges are available to business/first class travelers or those individuals that have platinum status or higher and are traveling internationally even in coach. To have access the person must be traveling international outside of the US and it is available for some transcontinental flights (East Coast to West coast or vice versa). A person does not need to be an Admirals Club member to have access to the lounge if they are flying internationally in Business Class or higher. Right now the Flagship Lounges are in Chicago, Miami, LA & JFK. With lounges coming in Philly, London (Heathrow), and Dallas. A Flagship First Lounge is beyond an Admirals Club with wonderful free food and beverage offerings. I found the Flagship lounge in Chicago to be beyond any of the Admirals Clubs. So far the only comparable international lounge I have found is British Airways lounges in Heathrow. Which also follows almost the same rules as American Airlines regarding access. So if you do an update to your article you should add this information.

    • Hi Robin – we think that would be a fantastic addition to this piece. We’ll be sure to add them when we update it, which will likely be soon! 🙂

    Isn’t there a Club that Admirals Club members can use at the airport in San Diego, CA?

    Thanks! Why does McCarran international airport in Las Vegas not have an admirals club?

    Reply

    • Hi James,

      Since we are not American Airlines, we cannot say as to why they have not decided to open an Admirals Club at McCarran. However, there is both a Centurion Lounge and a Priority Pass Lounge at McCarran, both of which are great options.

  6. Traveling to Fort Lauderdale airport looking for a comfy Lounge to relax in that doesn’t require memberships and will Fort Lauderdale airport let you stay in the Airport overnight? Thank you

    Reply

    • Hi KB,

      Unfortunately, there are not many lounges at the Fort Lauderdale airport and they all require membership. As for sleeping in the airport, they state passengers are allowed to stay overnight but “can only stay in pre-security waiting areas, that seating consists of chairs with arm-rests, that heavy duty cleaning is often conducted at night, that food/beverage service is limited, and that the terminals are cold.”

  7. Purchased a business ticket from Charlotte Douglas (CLT) to Allentown Pa(ABE). Is this a reciprocal for American Airlines? Can I use this lounge in West Palm Beach (WPB I) and Charlotte?

    Reply

    • Hi George,

      Domestic American Airlines business class tickets seldom offer Admirals Club access with the exception flights between NYC and LA/SFO, or flights between LA and MIA. So you likely will not be permitted to enter the lounges in WPB or Charlotte unless you have an Admirals Club membership, hold the Citi AAdvantage Executive World Elite MasterCard, or have AA Platinum status or higher.

      Safe travels!

  8. Anyone know what exactly can you get at Dallas FW’s lounges? Meaning food and booze options. Thanks!
