  1. I enjoy the club in terminal D at DFW for the large space and the great views of aircraft parked at their gates.

  2. Haven’t tried an Admiral’s Club before but tried the Flagship Lounge once in Chicago so I guess that would be my favorite AA lounge.

  3. LAX AAdmirals is my favorite. What I consider the best Flagship Lounge in the U.S., pretty good views of the runways and I heard celebs show up from time to time.

  4. my fav airport is HNL because of the open air nature of it. I do love the Admirals Club at DFW Terminal D though…

  5. The Admiral’s Club in JFK is quite nice, assuming one is flying on Qatar and not AA. QR C customers get to choose from real wine and liquor in addition to unlimited snacks and meals for no additional cost. Before I knew that part, I most regrettably ordered the disgusting house wine. A bartender there later told me that the house wine tasted like jet fuel. After that first glass, I would never mess with jet fuel.

  6. I’ve never been to one, but I’d love to check one out! My favorite airport internationally is SIN and domestically (US) is DEN!

  7. I’ve never been to an admiral’s club. I love DFW because my best friend works for American and I non-rev a lot through there 😉

  8. The admirals clubs in Phoenix (former U.S. Air club) are pretty good and the staff are very nice and helpful!

  9. I haven’t been to an Admiral’s Club, but have been to the DCA/BOS US Airways club if those count.

    As far as airports, I enjoy AMS, since it’s quick and easy to venture into the city during an extended layover.

  10. Either MIA club as they both have showers, so it is very convenient to take the red-eye to MIA, then shower before getting on an international flight to the Caribbean without feeling too gross!
    We are doing that run again in September, so the passes would be great.

  11. My favorite Admiral’s Club is at LGA, because it was our first and when my wife and I took our teen daughter in she thought it was so special to get free soda and a nicer place to sit. She posted pics with her in the vibrant red high-back chair. It really got our trip off to a great start.

  12. never visited a lounge before, but my favorite airport is Arba Minch Ethiopia. Its the only place where my luggage was searched by hand, and my boarding pass was also completely hand written!

  13. The Admirals Club at Boston Logan, because it’s my home airport and I have spent the most time there!

  14. Never been in admirals, my favorite airport is being because a major hub for southwest and can find great deals all over the country

  15. My favorite airport is PDX because of the food and drink options available at the same prices as outside of the airport. Where else can you experience food trucks at an airport?

  16. The Admrals Club in Dallas.

    I’m not sure if there’s an Admirals Club in Honolulu, but I’d love to find out.

  17. I tried to access an admirals club, but they didn’t accepted any of my passes or cards and I dont have an admirals club card. I really want to see and experience it for myself. One of my favorite airports is Hong Kong, MIA and SFO….

  18. I like the Admiral’s Club at SFO because it is very conveniently located for departing and arriving flights. The cookie’s are good too.

  19. SFO is my favorite airport because it is home, but I love the DFW D AC because of of the airplane views!

  20. Favorite admiral is SFO due to location, favorite airport is easily Seoul for the free sleeping couches + showers.

  21. Never been to an Admiral Club, but my favorite airport’s gotta be the Denver Airport – looks like a lemon meringue pie from the sky, very modern and cool inside!

  22. The truth is, I’ve never been to one. However, since I have a trip coming up in September 2016 to Europe from SFO. So I definitely will vote for SFO. Thanks

  23. I’d have to say LAX. I’m sure there may be better facilities…but it’s SO much nicer to be there than the regular concourse. Nice views and staff too.

  24. AA in Santiago Chile was my favorite due to the wine and rum selection. Dubai is my favorite airport though due to how modern it is.

  25. I’ve only been to the admirals club at JFK but with two young kids I loved it! Although EWR is geographically more convenient, I do prefer the atmosphere at JFK. LGA tends to be crazily crowded. Thanks Harlan for all your efforts!

  26. Transiting thru DFW in November. These would be great for our four hour layover! Never been to their club before.

  27. Never been to an Admiral’s Club, but would love to go. My favorite airport is RDU due to ease of use.

  28. I always appreciate moving through MIA, staff at various Admirals Clubs there have been kind to me in the past.

  29. Miami and the old Chichén Itzá airport consisting of one thatched hut, a crushed rock runway and a kid with an ice chest containing selling warm Cokes. It was the kind of place where pilots walked on the wings of their planes with plastic jugs of fuel refilling them and unreligious passengers quickly learned to pray.

  30. I like the admirals club at ORD. I live near Chicago, so if I am at the admirals club it means I am going somewhere. 🙂

  31. CLT’s B concourse club is my favorite. What they lack in amenities they makeup for in exceptional service

  32. So many, but I like the Club in the international terminal at LAX for the view of the terminal corridors below. Thanks for the contest!

  33. My favorite Admirals Club is DFW terminal D, and my favorite airport is Zurich because of it’s modern architecture and open feel.

  34. Terminal A West, PHL. It used to be the US Air Envoy lounge, so it’s the biggest and best appointed in the airport. Philly isn’t the best airport, but I know when I hear the surly voices of the workers there, I’m home!

  35. I have never been to an Admirals Club, and I’m excited for when I can but my favorite airport is SFO. The AA/VX terminal is beautiful. It’s clean, modern and probably the nicest terminal I have been out of

  36. Lax. My hometown. Have long flight from LAX to Japan so hope i can sit and relax in lounge. Cheap ticket on economy, uhgghh

  37. I’ve never been to an Admiral’s Club but as an ATL native traveling on AA four times before the end of the year and trying for status, I would have a pretty wide choice. Pick me, pick me!

  38. I really love the small airport in Victoria, BC. Everyone’s happy, must be from the smell of chocolate floating through the airport. Too bad their Admirals club is hard to find and small.
    Like others, SFO Admirals club has always earned high marks from me. Clean, quiet & easy to locate works well for me.

  39. I like the admirals club at ORD. It is the only AA Admirals club I’ve been to and ORD is a favorite airport because of the location and connections available to Asia and South Anerica from the Midwest.

  40. My favorite airport is DFW. It is close to home and has several non stop flights to many cities worldwide. I have never been to an Admirals Club, but would love to experience one in DFW

  41. My favorite Admirals Club has been the one in Santiago, Chile as it offers a more extensive food spread than your standard AC. My favorite airport is DCA because it is so convenient to get to and navigate and is only a 15 minute Metro or Uber from DC.

  42. I’ve never been to an Admirals Club, but VLC, Valencia, Spain, is my favorite airport since it’s the airport for the city where I studied abroad for a semester during undergrad.

  43. phl for sure. it’s monstrous huge and the best option at that airport. and……ahem…..when I started speaking my squeaky Spanish to the bartender, I noticed the drinks got a little stiffer! ok, ok, a LOT stiffer! my layover “flew” by!

  44. I actually don’t think I’ve ever visited an Admirals Club before–but my favorite airport (that I’ve been to) was MUC! When I visited last summer, they had a really cool surfing area in between the two terminals, right next to a biergarten. Definitely not something you see at every airport!

  45. I like the club in MIA near D30. That terminal always seems bustling and is nice to grab a drink and shower before connecting on internationally. Thanks!

  46. ORD I guess since that is the only AA lounge I have visited. Favorite airport is probably SIN because there is so much to do there.

  47. DFW is the best AA lounge Ive visited, but have not been in many. Favorite airport is BKK since I spend a lot of time there and know it well.

  48. We have never been in a lounge. We live in the DFW area now, but are very partial to our previous home airport, Denver International. So beautiful!

  49. Hi Harlan,

    I would love a chance to win an opportunity to go to a lounge 🙂 My girlfriend and I are flying to SFO soon and this would be perfect. Thanks again!

  50. First, thanks for this opportunity! I’ve never had a layover long enough to warrant a visit to the Admiral’s Club but I’ve got a UK trip coming in the fall that will provide a chance to do so. As for fave airports I like DTW as I can get around easily by walking, decent food, and never really a mob scene. Use it a lot for flying to Canada for work!

  51. Only one I’ve been to is PHX. Would love to use these on my upcoming honeymoon during a long layover in ORD.

  52. I live on the East Coast and travel to SF to see my elderly mom 4-5 times a year. Haven’t had a chance to check out the new Admirals club @SFO but would be great to do so while waiting for a midnight flight.
