American Airlines is buying it's customers drinks!

Starting October 1st, 2010 American Airlines will start serving complimentary drinks at it's domestic Admirals Club lounges.  Press release.  In the release they note "domestic clubs will offer well-brand liquors, as well as beers and house wines as a complimentary service on Oct. 1."   But they also state, "premium liquors and wines" (and food) won't be on the house.  Hey, at least you're getting something free!

But what is the Admirals Club Lounge?  AA Lounge Offical Site.  Well, it's a place where you can enjoy amenities including complimentary Wi-Fi, cyber cafes, music rooms, business centers equipped with PCs, copiers and global printing that can help you stay productive when you travel.  How much does it cost?   You can buy a one day pass for $50 or for the year rates start around $500 per person.  I guess if you fly a lot maybe it's worth it.   They have 43 club locations at places like:  Dallas Fort Worth, Atlanta, Los Angeles and other prominent airports.

The better question - A "AA" club serving alcohol seems like an oxymoron huh?
