Admirals Clubs At JFK And LHR

Wed Nov 16, 2005 8:30 am

Cheers,

My Admirals Club membership lapsed some years ago, but I may be renewing as I have many travel plans in the next year. I am flying AA 777! to Heathrow from JFK in a few weeks. Will I get to use the new Concourse C Admirals Club for a flight to London, or will I be relegated to the old Admirals Club at JFK? (I searched the threads on AA's new JFK terminal, and AA's website but did not see a clear answer.) For that matter, will I even get to see the new AA terminal or will I be in the old Terminal 8?

Second, at LHR, I have a 2.5 hour layover and then am flying BA on an intra-European route (RIX). So my question is will I get to enjoy the Admirals Club at LHR, or will I be running off to a faraway terminal to catch the BA connection? Thanks, very much!

You won't be able to use the Admirals Club during a layover. When you get to LHR you'll go to the FCC and be directed to Terminal 1 and the Admirals Club is in Terminal 3.

Well you need to clear up some things. Will you renew the AC membership before the flight or are you going to rely on elite status for AC entrance?

Are you originating in JFK or connecting? What fare is your BA segment?

Intl flights leave/arrive out of T8, however if you're flying in from some other city you'll arrive in the new "T9" and should be able to use the new AC there. I was there during a layover going to LHR four days ago.

As mentioned, the AC is located in T3 while you're flight will depart from T1. However, depending on your AA status, and/or fare paid you may use the BA Executive Club lounge in T1.

Thanks, for the replies. I am originating at JFK, traveling AA/BA coach on AAdvantage miles, and do not have elite status. So I won't see the new "T9" at JFK, and won't get to use the AC while connecting (outbound) at LHR. Thx.
