American Airlines has been hard at work upgrading the experience it offers to customers. The airline made headlines recently when it made a huge investment in upgrading its fleet to offer lie-flat seating on flights. In addition, the airline recently unveiled a new Premium Economy cabin that promises to make the travel experience much more enjoyable for passengers.

November will prove to be a month of even more innovation for American Airlines when it unveils its new Flagship Lounge at Miami International Airport. The highly anticipated lounge will join the list of Flagship Lounge locations that are already operating in New York and Chicago. Miami's lounge officially opens on Nov. 21.

The Flagship Lounge at Miami International Airport will only be open to elite members of the American Airlines AAdvantage program and passengers traveling in First Class or Business Class on qualifying international flights. Those flying in First Class will be permitted to bring one guest into the lounge. Elite Aadvantage, oneworld® EmeraldSM and SapphireSM Expand passengers flying on flights operated by American Airlines or oneworld® partners can also gain access.

The new Flagship Lounge is positioned next to the existing Admirals Club at Miami International Airport. It faces Gate D30 in the airport's North Terminal. The lounge will offer 29,000 square feet of space and close to 500 seats for guests.

The lounge's main dining area will feature both hot and cold buffet options. In addition, there is a chef's corner where guests can order artisanal meals. There are also snack corners and dining nooks located throughout the lounge.

Guests can also enjoy a self-service beverage station, wine bar, cocktail-crafting station, soda machines and coffee machines. Other impressive features inside the lounge include a theater room with two large televisions, computer work stations, showers and designated quiet zones.
