American Airlines Is Closing Its Only Admirals Club in the Caribbean

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - October 16, 2015

By the Caribbean Journal staff

American Airlines is permanently closing its Admirals Club lounge at San Juan’s Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport.

The lounge will permanently close “toward the end of 2015,” the carrier said in a statement.

“With more than 50 Admirals Club lounges around the world, we know the Admirals Club experience makes American unique, and we’re constantly looking at which lounges best serve our customers based on attendance, frequency of flights and customer demand,” the company said.

The company did not elaborate on the reasons for the closure, which will surely upset a number of travelers given that airport’s role as a hub for Caribbean travel.
