American Airlines has opened a new lounge at MIA for unaccompanied minors and elderly guests requiring assistance who transit via MIA. The lounge is 3,200 square feet and next to gate D23 with separate areas for minors and elderly passengers.
The lounge features, among other things, free snacks and drinks, video game machines, free computers loaded with children games, and a small library.

Good to know inn a cost cutting environment AA is adding amenities. A great idea and hopefully will generate some good-will, given the numerous "lost UM" incidents, on various airlines, we've heard of in the past.

Similar to the lounge they have at DFW by C2.
Smart idea - maybe it will remove a little bit of the organized chaos at Miami (no - before anyone misinterprets - I am not referring to the new terminal itself, which is great, but rather the general tenor of how things sometimes go down in Miami).

AA has had something similar in ORD for years. I remember traveling as an UM and they had books, games, TV etc (this was in the 80s). I know in ATL DL has "Dusty's Den" but I don't know what they offer, beyond a small area to keep the UMs until their flight.

IIRC Lufthansa have had their UM lounge in FRA for years. I remember using it several times when traveling as a UM, back in the days... Though IIRC them charging me (us), for using the Lounge aling with the assistance.
