American Airlines Chooses Joyce Farms Beef!

American Airlines Chooses Joyce Farms Beef!

June 01, 2017

We've got beef with American Airlines... grass-fed beef. We are honored that the airline recently selected Joyce Farms to supply beef for their signature Flagship Burger! It will be served in Flagship First Dining locations within their exclusive airport Flagship Lounges. 

Here’s a look at the Flagship Burger, to get your mouth watering. It’s served on a brioche bun and topped off with onion-bacon marmalade - YUM!

The single source burger patty used for the Flagship Burger is made from a special grind of our grass-fed Heritage Beef (formerly Naked Beef), which comes from 100% grass-fed heritage Aberdeen Angus cattle that are raised with no antibiotics, no animal by-products, no added hormones or growth stimulants, and nothing artificial EVER.

Guests are raving about the Flagship Burger - some calling it the best burger they had ever tasted! We’re glad to hear that, because we put a lot of care and attention into how we raise our cattle to produce beef that’s better for you, better for the animals, and better for the planet.


American Airlines officially introduced Flagship First Dining on Thursday with the debut of their newly renovated Flagship Lounge at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York this month. This Lounge (one of seven new or renovated lounges they have planned across the US), is the ultimate in airport luxury. American is the first U.S. airline to offer customers a restaurant-style dining experience on the ground, and a complimentary, first-class one at that! Access to Flagship Lounges and Flagship First Dining is exclusive to First Class and Business Class customers traveling on qualifying international and transcontinental flights.

We know American Airlines looked for the best of the best for their new and improved Flagship Lounges, and we are thrilled they chose our beef as the best out there!
