American is committed to reinvesting in its products and services. For example, American recently opened a brand new Admirals Club in San Francisco; completed an expansion to its JFK C Admirals Club and last year completed extensive renovations to its Boston Admirals Club and its London Heathrow Admirals Club and Flagship Lounge. To further enhance the customer experience, extensive renovations are currently underway at American's LaGuardia D Admirals Club and construction will begin later this month on American's brand-new club at LaGuardia C.
