Today’s itinerary

Check-In and ground experience

I checked in for my outbound and return flights to New-York via the American Airlines application the day before my departure for the Big Apple.

My boarding passes were issued in the blink of an eye, and at the end of check-in process I asked to change my return flight so I could get home earlier, since my friend had a 6:30 p.m. flight at JFK. As no seats were available on this flight, I was placed on the waiting list.

I left home a little less than two hours before the departure of my flight. As usual, I took Boston’s public transport system, which gets me to Logan Airport’s Terminal B in less than 10 minutes.


I went up to the departures level, and headed straight for the TSA checkpoint, deserted for the non-TSA Pre line. In less than five minutes, I was airside.


Location and welcome

The location of the American Airlines lounge at Boston Logan hasn’t changed since last time, it’s still located next to gate D4, and it’s this gate that was used for my flight to New-York JFK.


The welcome was pleasant, and after scanning my boarding pass and checking my British Airways card, I was admitted to the lounge.

Lounge design

Like the location, the design of the lounge hadn’t changed since my last visit a few weeks ago. Plenty of space was available, and the brightness is always very pleasant.



The breakfast offer was constant, but the scrambled eggs were qualitative, as well as the toasts offered to passengers.


Bottom line

The wait was always very pleasant, and I could leave my flight only a few moments before the theoretical boarding time, and still board among the first. The charming staff makes it a very pleasant place to be.
