September 14. At the start of the pandemic, airlines closed virtually all of their lounges, both due to the lack of passengers, and due to a need for updated policies. While airlines have started to reopen lounges, most premium international lounges have remained closed due to lack of demand.
Here in the United States, all American Airlines Flagship Lounges and United Airlines Polaris Lounges have been closed for around 18 months. That’s finally starting to change — this is a reminder that American is reopening its Flagship Lounge JFK as of today, with other Flagship Lounges expected to reopen in the coming days and weeks.
American Airlines has started the process of gradually reopening its Flagship Lounges and Flagship First Dining locations. The JFK Flagship Lounge is reopening as of today, Flagship First Dining at JFK is opening in a couple of days, and the MIA Flagship Lounge is reopening later this month. It’s great to see these lounges finally reopen.
