"ambience is ruined by fluorescent lighting"

(United Kingdom)

Without doubt the worst airline lounge I have ever used. I understand the lounge has been recently refurbished but the money has been wasted. The ambience is ruined by fluorescent lighting and it feels deathly quiet - there is absolutely no atmosphere. The furniture may be new but it is neither stylish nor comfortable the tables look like coffins! The food is basic cardboard tasting shrink wrapped in plastic and only snacks. There is no hot food. Beverages are worse. There were two bottles of red wine and of white both cheap quality - not what I would expect for such a ticket. Tea and coffee are of the do it yourself variety. Staff were disinterested and rather surly.

"the lounge needs to open earlier"

(United Kingdom)

Great lounge. Difficult to get to and find it during the transit from other terminal due to Narita airport passenger traffic logistics and how the signs are marked. The lounge needs to open earlier. There are passengers always waiting from 630 AM until it opens 730AM. Checkin tends to take too long even after you have a passport ticket and Admiral Lounge membership card! The staff is extra courteous. Nice to have a few exercise machines to warm up. The shower rooms have great privacy.

"drink offer limited as was the food"

(United Kingdom)

Large lounge with views over the shopping gallery below or the tarmac. Plenty of seating areas quiet corners room for families pc area with free internet access. Serviced bar with sports channel on. Drink offer limited as was the food - peanuts and carrot sticks/sauce. Poor. Given 1 voucher/person for alcoholic drink from serviced bar way below expectations. Sandwiches have to be paid for from the bar. Only soup available upon request (and tipping). Reading materials very limited couple of newspapers and AA brochure. Obvious cost cutting by AA.

"staff friendly and professional"

(United Kingdom)

LAX lounge very good almost empty at 7am good drinks and basic breakfast foods. DFW was offered free alcoholic drink as OneWorld ticket - otherwise all to be paid for except coffee/sodas. Nice shower facilities in both lounges and staff friendly and professional. For US lounges no complaints but far from the standard of BA CX QF or JL.

"the only thing you get is maybe a fairly comfortable chair"

(United Kingdom)

I purchased a 1-day pass for 3 people in my family to use the Admirals Club in Dallas-Ft. Worth Admirals Club on the way overseas. I bought it online and ask the agent if there was free sandwiches snacks and alcoholic beverages. We wanted to get a cold beer and maybe cheese/crackers. The person said all this was free and when we got there I did not find any sandwiches free or alcohol. There was some trail-mix and pretzels cokes tea and water. The menu was an elaborate price to order anything else. We did not stay long and left. Delta clubs are better with choices of drinks (alcoholic or others) finger-foods and sandwiches. Do not bother with a 1-day pass at Admiral Clubs the only thing you get is maybe a fairly comfortable chair.

"seating was shabby and tired-looking"

(United Kingdom)

We arrived LHR after 11 hour flight from Cape Town. We were told that there was no hot water for showers. For simple washing up the ladies room was not even stocked with towels or soap. My husband reported that the men's room was filthy. When I finally approached one of the staff for entry to the shower room for a cold shower she was less than pleased at the interruption and seemed quite put out. Seating was shabby and tired-looking. Food offering was awful. There were 2 computers in the lounge occupied by a couple using them for twittering and net surfing.

"under renovation with partial completion"

(United Kingdom)

Under renovation with partial completion. Standard US furnishings with reasonable atmosphere. Crowded for much of time there and other than nuts and juice everything had to be bought thus bringing down the scores. Internet access was on the blink.

"worst international lounge I've ever been in"

(United Kingdom)

Worst international lounge I've ever been in. We're supposed to "pardon their appearance" due to their renovation. Why didn't they just set up card tables in the hallway? OK there were some alcoholic drinks on offer along with tasty items like cardboard muffins in plastic under the fluorescent lighting. Packed in for 4 hours with guys yelling into their cell phones the distant receptionists ignored all we waiting sufferers. Is it any wonder that American Airlines is having financial problems?

"spoilt by the need to pay for food and drinks"

(United Kingdom)

Have American Airlines not seen the way the rest of the world does it? What is a "pay bar"? What is it with ordering and paying for food? After paying $12000 for a return business class ticket I do not expect to pay for a beer or a sandwich in the lounge waiting for a flight. As for the "drinks vouchers" stamped with a date - cheap and nasty! It is a real pity because the lounge itself is richly appointed. It is a warm and comforting environment spoilt by the need to pay for food and drinks.

"poor selection of food and drink"

(United Kingdom)

Having flown AA for 20 years the Flagship Lounge/Admirals Club experience is one of my most disappointing with AA. The typical Admirals Club is rather tired has a poor selection of food and drink and are often crowded. Internet access has become one of the main reasons I keep my membership. The Flagship lounges (I have experienced LHR/ORD/San Juan) are better but typically quite small. It is mind boggling to me that they do not have one at their hub in DFW - but even these are nowhere near the quality of BA/Cathay for 1st class passengers. Their shower facilities are fairly decent with Chicago being recently upgraded but again Flagship do not have these - Admirals Club only. All in all not close to international standards with some of the lounges having totally insufficient bathrooms for the capacity of the lounge (ORD G Concourse is a good example - 1 toilet for men in a club with a 100+ capacity).
