Looks chic and stylish. Which Admirals Club is this?

I believe the bottom photo is the club in Concourse B of JFK Terminal 8. The top one I'm not sure about.

Quoting Atlflyer (Thread starter):
The new clubs look to be very nice.

Many of the new designs (SFO for example) come from Staffelbach Designs in DFW, run by Andre Staffelbach and his design team. They are superb designers and no, I do not work there, but have been a client in the past. When you get talent, skill, and experience combined, you get great designs and AA has obviously done so.

They look better than the new UA clubs... and I'm a UA flyer!

I wish the great design of the clubs had extended to the livery.

I can only hope that AA applies this to the recently redesigned club at LGA. The Oriental theme used was not very good or conducive to anything else at LGA.

I'm curious if AA will begin refreshing all of the Admirals Club with the 'new' AA look and brand. Guess we will find out soon eough.

Refreshing some of the employees who work at the clubs may also help.

I've visited quite a few lounges across the US and amongst the US carriers, AA definitely has the best lounges. The showers are my #1, #2, and #3 favorite features of the AAdmirals Club and to me, they are well worth the price of admission!

AA's lounges run circles around anything UA offers, even UA's Global First Lounges! The food served at the bars are quite decent and not outrageously expensive. The free sodas are also a nice touch. My least favorite AAdmirals Club no longer exists, as the SFO one has now been reborn as one of the premier lounges in the system. Gotta find a way to visit SFO again to try out that lounge!

With AA's reborn 77W business class suites and whatever they have replacing the angled lie flat seats on other planes, AA will again be at the top in premium travel services and I look forward to coming back to AA after spending a few years over at UA.

What's wrong with Delta in the category of premium travel services?

I don't see one thing that is interesting in the 2 pictures of the AA lounges above. Clean and nice design, yes, a unique feature, no. I love the new "jet engine" light fixture in the UA lounge. Better designed chairs and some famous Jacobsen Egg Chairs. Quite off the extreme mainstream for UA. Both AA and UA lounges tend to try very hard to be straight down the middle. AA should have a bespoke feature.

Also isn't the AMERICAN Club I identity the exact approach to UNITED Club? I always hated the name "Red Carpet Club" (as if you got the Red Carpet treatment) but I did love the name Admiral's Club, they should have kept that, and it's circle w 5 stars symbol too!

Quoting LipeGIG (Reply 2):

Yes, Lipe, the AA club at GRU (I can't recall GIG) is appalling! And GRU is such a key airport for them. Have you seen the UA renovation at GRU, after 20 years of no change, it's quite nice, although NOT the new UA design.

Those orange chairs in to top picture don't look too comfortable. They are so high -- you have to hop up into them? -- that they have a stirrup foot rest. Why not a function-over-form reasonable sit-down height?

They need to start with the ORD H/K club. For being one of AA's five "cornerstones", that club is draconian in appearance.

Huh? It's still called the Admirals Club. AA has been using that name for its lounges for 70+ years, it isn't going anywhere.

This reminds me quite a bit of the new DL Sky Club "LOOK".

I'm going to say it. While they look nice, they are not comfortable. I literally don't think any of the seats at the new DL Sky Clubs are comfy. I hope AA doesn't do the same with the AAdmiral's Club. I fly effectively only DL, AA and WN (in that order of frequency) and the AAdmiral's club in ORD I liked b/c it was more comfortable than most Sky Clubs...

The AA club at GIG has been closed since early Jan.. They are making everyone use the GOL lounge until AA can build another lounge.

I like the way that the long, horizontal lines are a design element that is carried throughout the branding, right into the premium cabin of the new 77W.

AA really thought out their new identity very well and their design firm did a fantastic job. ...Except for that tail.
