    A founding member of the global oneworld® Alliance, American Airlines is re-opening the Admirals Club at Nashville International Airport today, giving customers nearly 6,000 square feet of space in which to simply relax, to connect to work prior to boarding a flight, or to rest before exploring the city's rich country music heritage and other attractions.

    The new Admirals Club will be open Sunday through Friday from 5:15 a.m. to 7:45 p.m., and on Saturdays from 5:15 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. The lounge has seating for 60 customers and is located in Concourse C, Mezzanine Level, near gate C12. Inside the lounge, members will experience:

    -- An area for noise-free relaxation 
    -- A business center with four individual work stations and two personal computers equipped with state-of-the-art Lenovo technology offering complimentary high-speed Internet access 
    -- T-Mobile Wireless HotSpot 
    -- A new global printing solution, powered by Printer On, that allows guests to submit print jobs via email or web page uploads from any location and retrieve them in the lounge 
    -- Two flat-panel televisions 
    -- Assistance with ticketing, re-booking flights or upgrades from an Admirals Club representative.

    "We are delighted to be able to bring the quiet, comfortable retreat of our Admirals Club lounges, complete with the latest technology, back to Nashville," said Nancy Knipp, President -- Admirals Club for American Airlines. "Our customers in Tennessee have been loyal supporters of American Airlines, and the economic growth in the Nashville area makes it an ideal market to add to our Admirals Club network."

    The Nashville lounge becomes the 44th Admirals Club lounge at American Airlines. It will soon be joined by a new Admirals Club facility and Flagship Lounge® in Concourse B at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport this summer. Earlier this year, a new Admirals Club opened at Tokyo's Narita International Airport.

    One-year Admirals Club memberships for new members range from just $300 to $450. Memberships can also be purchased with AAdvantage travel reward miles, starting at just 45,000 miles.* To celebrate the opening of the Nashville Admirals Club, American Airlines is offering a $100 discount for new memberships purchased inside the Nashville lounge until July 31, 2007.

    In addition, members receive access to discounts and special offers plus a complimentary membership with Regus Group, the world's largest provider of fully furnished and fully equipped offices, meeting rooms, videoconferencing and business lounges. One-day passes to the lounges are available for only $50. To learn more, visit http://www.aa.com/admiralsclub.
