The LoungeThis is a lounge that I had been trying to get into for many years, and let me tell you it was hard. I was once able to walk through it when the bathrooms in the attached Admirals club were closed, piquing my interest in visting. I've booked international flights through Miami only to have them changed at the last minute because of weather or other problems, then it was closed during covid. I finally got there to actually use it and wow (4 years of trying), is it a nice lounge!
The self-service bar and the champagne & wine station are very similar to other Flagship lounges in the system.
Flagship First DiningFor flagship lounges that have a true first class flight out of them, there are these dining establishments, a lounge within a lounge, with a true international level of pampering.
SummaryHaving been to the old British Airways international lounge and the Turkish Airways lounge here, the American Airlines Flagship Lounge Miami is by far the best I have seen here. I typically am not in terminal J where the rest of the international flights head out, so as of yet I cannot comment on any of those.
This is the lounge I want to be in while waiting for my connecting flight, every time I can.
