First- and business-class flyers will experience fully lie-flat seats, a chef-curated menu, as well as premium wines and amenity kits. Main Cabin customers will have access to high-speed Wi-Fi and seatback entertainment and will be able to purchase new light and healthy menu options.

At LAX, customers traveling first class will have exclusive access to a private, dedicated VIP check-in facility. Additionally, the Flagship Lounge in Terminal 4 will offer full-service dining and a “build your own cocktail” station. In Boston, first-class customers will have access to the newly renovated Admirals Club, which reopens in early 2019.

Pro tip: Even if you’re not paying for a first-class seat, you can still access airport lounges with smart spending.
