American Airlines said it has started renovating its Admirals Clubs in Phoenix and Sao Paulo, Brazil, as part of an extensive makeover of its elite member airport clubs.
The new club designs, which are part of $2 billion in customer initiatives that the Fort Worth-based carrier announced last year, will feature high-backed chairs with power outlets and USB ports and the lounge areas will be given a contemporary look with tan and gray tones with red accents.
“Our goal is to create spaces that are more in line with how people live and spend their time today,” said Fernand Fernandez, American’s vice president of global marketing.
American said it will start construction at clubs in Miami, New York JFK, Los Angeles and Dallas/Fort Worth later this year. The carrier has four clubs at DFW in Terminals A, B, C, and D.
