American Airlines is planning big changes to its Admirals Club airport lounges.

The company announced this week that it would be launching “the most expansive lounge makeover in the airline’s history.”

The changes will begin with the company’s lounges in Phoenix and São Paulo, with more to come over the next several years, the company said.

“Renovated clubs will be instantly recognizable to customers, with entryways featuring the American Airlines logo on sleek, white glass. Once inside, customers will be greeted by representatives who are stationed at modern check-in podiums, ready to assist with travel and upgrade needs,” the carrier said in a release. “Lounge areas will receive a contemporary style overhaul with a mix of tan and gray tones and accents of rich red, along with lighting and other elements that blend in white oak wood and stainless steel.”

American will then be launching construction on clubs in Miami, New York (JFK), Dallas and Los Angeles this year, with clubs in cities like Chicago and London entering the renovation in the coming years.

“Ultimately, the makeover will touch all of American’s lounges,” the company said.
