American Admirals Clubs Are Getting Avocado Toast

American Admirals Clubs Are Getting Avocado Toast

30

Here’s a cute new feature that will soon be available at select American Admirals Clubs. American has just informed me that they’ll be rolling out avocado toast in select Admirals Clubs starting April 3, 2018. This will be available from 7AM until 10AM daily, and fortunately isn’t replacing American’s popular afternoon guacamole station.


American Admirals Club

The complimentary made-to-order avocado toast stations will first roll out in Charlotte (CLT), Washington Reagan (DCA), Dallas Fort Worth (DFW), Phoenix (PHX), and Philadelphia (PHL), and will hopefully be expanded beyond that at a later point. Guests will have their choice of adding toppings like tomatoes, prosciutto, and smoked salmon.

Here are some pictures that American has shared of the new avocado toast:

Mmmm, now I’m hungry (though that may largely be a function of having constantly been denied my first choice of meals on TAAG Angola for the past 24 hours).

I love the concept of these made-to-order stations. In addition to the guacamole, American has been adding live cooking stations to their new Flagship Lounges, which is a feature I’ve enjoyed.

While Flagship Lounges have great food, Admirals Clubs generally don’t have great food, so I consider this to be a nice addition. It’s perhaps one of the small advantages that between Admirals Clubs have on Delta SkyClubs, which are otherwise superior in every year (then again, Delta doesn’t have any premium lounges for their international passengers, so SkyClubs are as good as they get).


Delta SkyClubs generally have a far superior food selection than Admirals Clubs

I look forward to trying out the avocado toast. I’m a bit surprised to see American offer both guacamole and avocado toast — avocados aren’t cheap, so with Doug Parker at the helm I figured they’d be more likely to offer Spam toast.

Have you taken advantage of American’s made-to-order guacamole? Do you look forward to trying the avocado toast?

    This has made my thought processes when choosing an airline so much easier. Thank you.

    And how do you know, pray tell, who here is a boomer and who isn't?

    Don't be jealous of your kids, fellas. It's not a good look.

    Oh goodie *jumping up and down* and are they replacing the toilet paper with 4-ply sheets?

  5. Ruth Guest

    woo hoo! I eat avocado and eggs on toast almost every morning, so as geeky as this sounds, I am excited about it!

  6. DWondermeant Guest

    I'd gladly give up the avocado toast for some saver award availability.
    However being that's not an option I'll stay with my plan to rarely fly American and continue using cash back cards over their credit card with Citibank
    I'm doing everything I can to avoid American even doing the unthinkable using Southwest and Delta and the one sweet spot of defecting enjoying Alaska Airlines very much

    Millennials? Most of the population of Australia worked out how tasty this was aeons ago.

  8. schar Guest

    heck yeaaa!! my inner Angelino Mellenial self is very happy rn

    AA is forgetting that millennials are dumb enough to pay $6+ for a cup of coffee and $12 for two piece of bread with some sub-grade avocado on it.... which is why they can't afford AAdmirals Club memberships.

    ...which is fine by me. It's kind of nice to have an older, calmer, quieter crowd in the lounges.

  10. Rezzadogs Guest

    It will be tasteless without the vegemite :)

  11. Vassa Guest

    Millennials are no longer perceived as representing youth? They can be as old as 38 depending on what definition you use. Perhaps people should start referring to Generation Z instead?

  12. Evan Guest

    A whole article on Avocado Toast.

  13. M.O. Guest

    Avocados are amazing, so this makes me pretty happy. Hopefully it actually tastes good too!

  14. ek New Member

    I found the guacamole served at the guacamole stations to be absolutely disgusting.

  15. Dan Guest

    If avocado toast is why millennials can't buy houses, if I eat the free avocado toast at Admirals Clubs can I still buy a house?

  16. AdamR Diamond

    @Anna:

    That was my first thought, too. It looks like Texas Toast that you'd get at Sizzler. And while that's also horrible for you (but still horribly delicious), it's not something I'd want to throw avocado on. Needs to be a sliced baguette or GTFO.

  17. Whipppersnapper Guest

    Old out of touch people everywhere "damn millennials".

  18. Sandra Guest

    MY GOD.....Are you going to do a separate post for every single food item on the lounge menu? I suppose the only thing this post is missing is the obligatory credit card sign up link....

  19. TCCQuest New Member

    What's so infamous with the guacamole stations? I've only experienced it once at LAX, I was quite happy with it. What am I missing?

  20. NomNom Guest

    @Lucky -- you misspelled 'forward' as 'froward' near the end of the post.

    @Jon -- is there a photo of the guacamole station that you see? Because I don't see a photo like that.

  21. Paolo Diamond

    Dreadful. With the added insult to culinary good taste of “extra toppings”....of such unsuitability they could only have been designed by aberrant colonials.

  22. Quinten Guest

    * Breaking news * They will have toast in the lounge....

  23. Anna Guest

    I love anything in carb form, but that bread doesn't look particularly appetizing.

  24. Jon Guest

    That Guacamole station is absolutely hilarious. Looks like hogs elbowing out each other at the trough.

  25. Alpha Guest

    Man, Admirals clubs have the absolute -weakest- breakfast selection of any legacy carrier. Even Delta Sky Clubs have those microwave 'omelettes' nowadays, but I've never seen an Admirals club with more than a bagel and 'lemon cake.'

  26. FMLAX Member

    While I'd definitely take avocado toast over spam toast,I would totally eat some spam toast if it was prepared Hawaiian style.

  27. Leeza1 Guest

    Lucky, which churrascaria are you going today?
