Citi has partnered with American Airlines (AA) to create a top tier airline credit card. American airlines is one of the largest airlines in the country with major hubs in Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, and New York – among many others.
As you may have guessed from the name of the card, the frequent flyer program is called AAdvantage. This venerable program was launched in the 1980’s, and has over sixty million members. It’s an extremely flexible program that allows you to redeem miles for tickets, upgrades, hotel stays, and merchandise – among other options.
American Airlines also runs its own collection of lounges called the Admirals Club. These are high tier lounges that fall somewhere between the typical priority pass lounge and the AMEX Centurion.
The first Admirals Club lounge was opened during LaGuardia airport’s construction. Then New York Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia had an upper-level space set aside for press conferences. At one of the conferences, he remarked that the entire terminal was getting leased. A vice president at American Airlines immediately offered to lease the conference space for the purposes of turning it into a lounge. This began operating as the “Admirals Club” in late 1939.
The fabulous Citi AAdvantage Executive card will allow you to earn AAdvantage miles, access the Admirals Club across the world, and also receive awesome travel perks such as priority boarding on American Airlines flights.
