Simple grey loungers with attached tray tables are lined up in groups of four along the large apron-facing window. Although grouped, no seat is without something to separate it from the next. A small table or support will give you some breathing room during your visit, something New Yorker’s seldom get and love when they do.
Some café and limited bar style seating is available if you’re looking for more of a near foodless bar & grill vibe. An instant-oatmeal breakfast with a mimosa sounds like a good day-starter, no?

Food/Drink: All that was offered during our morning visit was a selection of bagels and packets of instant oatmeal. At the time of our review the transition to a merged American Airlines/US Airways lounge menu had just begun.
Wi-fi/Connectivity: Wi-fi is free and snappy.
Service: A very friendly agent checked us in and welcomed us with a smile. The lounge wasn’t anywhere near full so it wasn’t much of a test, but in-lounge staff kept the tiny buffet stocked and seating areas tidy.
Showers: Unlike the central terminal Admirals Club, this one doesn’t have showers. Not a surprise for a lounge this size.
Summary: This American Admirals Club isn’t all that inspiring but it’s got most of the basics. With the menu evolving we’ll go easy on the lacking food but seats are plenty comfortable and are nicely spaced for space and relative privacy. The winners here are the service and big windows that give this otherwise dull space some much-needed light.
Rating: 3 hops of 5.
How to get in: It’ll take an American Airlines Admirals Club membership or 50 bucks for a day pass. The $50 pass might better spent at the larger, more colorful and amenity-positive Admirals Club inside the Central Terminal at LaGuardia Airport.
