American Airlines seems be getting drowned out and left out of a lot of the media coverage regarding the opening of SFO’s new Terminal 2, which it shares with Virgin America. Of huge interest to frequent travelers is the opening of a fantastic new Admirals Club, with touches I’ve rarely or never seen before in an airport lounge….like a fireplace and pine trees! Be sure to scroll through the photos below.
T2 is so high-end that the entire terminal feels like one giant airport club, so AA had to pull out all the stops to make this club even nicer than the rest of the terminal…and I think they succeeded.
You don’t necessarily have to be an Admirals Club member to enjoy this club– day passes are available for $50 and access is a member benefit for American Express Platinum Card holders which, in addition to access to American, Delta and US Airways clubs in the US, now offers free membership in Priority Pass for lounge access overseas. Details.)
The new T2 Admirals Club is almost 10,000 sq feet– double the size of the old club in Terminal 3. There’s room for 165, a business center with HP PC’s, free Wi-Fi, tons of electrical outlets, several flat panel TV’s and “spa-like” showers. It’s also American’s first and only LEED certified lounge in the world.
