Travel in Luxury With a Day Pass to the Admiral's ClubMay 5th, 2012 by The JetSetter Team | Comments Off on Travel in Luxury With a Day Pass to the Admiral's Club
It turns out that the swanky luxury of American Airlines Admiral’s Club doesn’t have to be a long-term relationship achieved by a huge outlay of cash or flying approximately three trillion miles a year. In fact, for a moderate rate ($50 per day as of this writing), you can make full use of the Club and all associated amenities. What sort of amenities are we talking about? Here’s a short list.
- Complimentary house, wine, beer, and spirits
- Complimentary coffee, tea and soft drinks
- Complimentary light snacks
- Complimentary Wi-Fi
- Complimentary PCs with Internet access
- Comfortable seats
- Some have showers, a kids room, business center…
- Access to agents who can normally reroute your ticket much faster than on the “outside”
While fifty bucks for a posh place to
relax might not always make sense for infrequent travelers, there are a few situations where it could be deemed worth the extra cost. Consider the event that you get stuck with a delay or layover that threatens to last several hours. Would you rather be out with the masses fighting for space in molded plastic seats, having your feet trod upon no matter where you put them, or slide into one of the 40+ Clubs situated around the country in major airports?
An even sneakier way to make use of Admiral’s Club facilities is
in the event you’re connecting through several airports within the course of a single day. Yep, you can use a daily pass at any Club you happen to be in the vicinity of as long as it’s on the same day. Additional perks allow the holder of a day pass to bring up to three children under the age of 18 in at no extra cost. If you like the experience so much you decide to spring for the full cost membership, American Airlines credits your day pass cost to the annual fee as long as you upgrade within 30 days.
Fifty bucks to escape the regular craziness of airport travel and relax in quiet professional comfort? Sounds like a good deal to us.
