    30 day Admirals Club memberships get the chop

    Picked this up from the one mile at a time blog today:

    "American is discontinuing 30 day Admirals Club memberships as of July 25, 2016"

    A shame, this was a good option for people to get QP (and AC) access just for a particular trip.

    I thought about this a week or so ago - but the monthly fee was well in excess of the annual fee... even counting that you might use it more since you specifically bought it for one month's worth of intensive travel.

    This doesn't look to be a QF initiated action because otherwise AA could have simply excluded QF lounges.
