I’d been to the United Club, ANA Suite and Business Class Lounges, and the Korean Air lounge, but I’d never been to any of the oneworld lounges at Tokyo Narita until this trip, so I decided to do a little bit of lounge hopping. I started with the American Airlines Admirals Club, which must be one of the nicest Admirals Clubs in the network.
It wasn’t crowded at all when I was there, so there was plenty of seating with nice, large windows with views of the apron. There were lots of different seating options including loungers, work cubbies, and phone rooms (I kinda think that more lounges should have phone rooms, but I guess they’re a little moot if people on phones don’t actually use them).
The wifi in the lounge was decent, and there were a lot of power outlets all over the place, which is key for an airport lounge if you’re trying to get any work done.
Compared to other Admirals Clubs, there was a ton of free food; compared to other international lounges, the food was pretty meh. There was some sort of stuffed pastry, a quiche, sandwiches, sushi, and soup. The food looked to be of similar quality to the stuff that you find in the United lounge, which is to say not very high, but people seem to rave about the United Club at NRT, so whatevs.
Overall, this Admirals Club is great for an Admirals Club, and it was quite spacious with lots of seating, so if you’re just looking for some peace and quiet, this is the oneworld lounge for you at NRT. If you’re looking for food or amenities, this is not the lounge you’re looking for.
