What Are American Airlines Flagship Lounges

Flagship Lounge is American Airlines’ most premium lounge tier, offered only in select cities. In contrast to the Admirals Club, access to the Flagship Lounges can only be gained through status.

With this in mind, billed as American’s creme de la creme, Flagship Lounges used to be open to just international first class and Oneworld Emerald passengers, however they are now open to international business class and Oneworld Sapphire passengers.
