American has had a new lounge palette that’s been slowly rolling out
The Buenos Aires club is stunningly modern (though not big enough for the volume of passengers at peak times).
Alan H. sent me this Bloomberg piece about airlines making ramped up investments in their lounges.
The thing that struck me is that it included a photo tagged “Design for American Airlines’ new lounges” from James Park Associates. And it’s one I hadn’t seen before:
It’s not wholly inconsistent with the new design palette that American has been using but it still appears to be a departure from that. Note especially the lighting and wood walls.
Ultimately it’s the people that make the lounge, but it’s great to see the investment.
