As the title suggests, American will start offering complimentary beer, wine, and spirits in their Admirals Clubs on October 1. Premium beverages will still be available for purchase.
This was no doubt inevitable. This means that the only US airline not to have free alcohol in their clubs is United. I’m sure that was going to change with the Continental merger anyway, but I’m betting American announcing this will make United adopt the change just a little bit quicker.
