Historical past&#13

The very first airport lounge was introduced in 1939 as The Flagship Club at LaGuardia airport, born out of the American Airlines Admirals Club to recognise their most loyal travellers and as a privileged spot for VIPs to loosen up just before their flight. The launch of the airline hub and spoke system in the US for the duration of the 80s and 90s resulted in much more and far more passengers possessing to make connections in hub cities that extra to the daily passenger targeted traffic and time invested in airports do to connections. The adjust forced the airlines into incorporating new and expanding the size of current lounges to deal with the added passenger traffic.

Regular Flyer packages that began in the early 80s grew in popularity and then started to diversify in the late 80s and early 90s to differentiate membership status amounts based on specific mileage thresholds and flight segments flown. A lot of of those that attained the highest elite standing had been rewarded with lounge accessibility as an added advantage and reduce elite members have been rewarded with discounted airline lounge plan membership fees. Starting in the early to mid-90s US airlines ultimately began to adjust their mindset with regard to their lounge product basically becoming an unique club for their ideal buyers to turn into much more of a profit centre.
