The decision to close clubs at Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD), Kansas City International Airport (MCI), Santa Domingo (SDQ) and Panama City (PTY) was based on a comprehensive analysis of American’s current Admirals Club network relative to our future lounge strategy, competitive positioning, facility investments and long-term operating costs.
IAD, MCI and SDQ Clubs closed effective end of business July 31, 2012. The Panama City (PTY) Club closed end of business June 30, 2012
We expect no reduction in force for Premium Services beyond the impact of the Club closure. All current Premium Services employees will have a position and – in some cases – be eligible for new positions with the new tier system.
