Points Summary

Chicago O’Hare American Airlines Flagship Lounge


I flew from LAX-ORD First Class due to being upgraded for free as an Executive Platinum member on American Airlines. I was able to enter the Flagship Lounge at Chicago O’Hare because I am an Executive Platinum member travelling on an international itinerary in any class, even coach. I’ve been to this lounge several times, but I had a 6 hour layover in Chicago so I was able to see the lunch and dinner portions of the lounge. The ORD Flagship Lounge is also shared by Japan Airlines as a JAL First Class Lounge.

As I entered the lounge during noon hours, the lounge was surprisingly empty!

Light lunch was already being served and it included salads, fruits, cheese, crackers, vegetable tray with various dippings, and italian wedding soup.

There was also a massive open bar with bottled beer, liquor, spirits, wine, and champagne.

Light supper was being served around 3:30pm and it included a variety of sushi, cocktail shrimp, skewers, and sandwiches.

I definitely tried a little bit of everything just to sample how the taste factor was on the food. The best part was the cocktail shrimp and the minestrone soup. The sushi is forgettable and the skewers were really tough and hard to chew. The open bar with unlimited Chandon champagne was definitely the highlight of my stay. 6 hours definitely went by fast in this lounge as it was nearly empty at all hours of my stay.
