After checking in for our American Airlines first class flight to Tokyo and going though security, we proceeded to the American Airlines Flagship Lounge which is AA’s international first class lounge at Chicago O’Hare.

The lounge was fairly packed during our visit.


Although there wasn’t a large variety of food available, the selection was much better than the Admirals Club lounge at O’Hare which we had checked out last year.

It was about 11:30 a.m. and there was a “light lunch” menu on offer.

Lunch included sushi, fruit salad, vegetables, cheese, sandwiches and brownies.

A large selection of self-serve beverages was available including a good selection of alcohol.

Although we did not have anything to eat we did grab a few bottles of water for the flight.

We also peeked into the business center.  The business center is equipped with several computers and a printer.

When it was time to board our flight, we appreciated the lounge’s second exit leading directly to the gate.

While American’s Flagship Lounge at Chicago O’Hare is not as impressive as some of the other lounges we would later visit on our trip, it was a convenient place to relax and grab some drinks before our flight.
