Chefs, culinary experts, and foodies gathered at the New York City Wine & Food Festival (NYCWFF) had a hankering for American Airline’s Flagship Burger.

The all-American burger was elevated to premium status as the airline hosted the weekend’s gathering of foodies at its Flagship-themed Lounge during the NYCWFF rooftop Burger competition.

American Airlines is the first airline to have a burger compete at this level. 

“We had fun being a part of the competition and know we put up a good fight.”

American’s Flagship Burger was designed by professional chefs using locally sourced ingredients. The new burger made its debut in May 2017 during the unveiling of the airline’s Flagship First Dining experience at the JFK premium lounge.

“We knew we had something special with the Flagship Burger and were excited and proud to be the first airline to have its burger entered into the New York City Wine & Food Festival contest,” said Janelle Anderson, vice president of Marketing for American. “The Flagship Burger was created with local professional chefs and first launched when we opened our restaurant-style lounge at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) last year. We had fun being a part of the competition and know we put up a good fight.”

First class passengers traveling on transcontinental or long-haul international routes can get a bite of the Flagship Burger at American Airlines’ Flagship First Dining locations at JFK, Miami International Airport and Los Angeles International Airport.
