Last year, American introduced their Five Star Service, a special, one-on-one travel assistance program at JFK and LAX to help you through check-in, speed you through security, and help smooth any turbulence that you might encounter when traveling.
In addition to Admirals Club access, Five Star Service includes:
Your personal representative will:
Meet you at curbside or arrival gate
Assist you at baggage and check-in
Expedite your way through security
Escort you through Customs and Immigration for international flights
Proactively monitor your flights
Over the last several months, they’s expanded the number of cities where they offer this VIP travel assistance to include: Boston; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Chicago (O’Hare); Dallas Fort Worth; London (Heathrow), England; Los Angeles; Miami; Milan, Italy; New York (Kennedy); New York (LaGuardia); San Francisco; Sao Paulo, Brazil; Tokyo (Narita), Japan; and Washington, D.C. (Reagan).
Now they’re offering a sweepstakes to promote it:

I’ve not tried this service myself, but Marshall Jackson writes on his blog about his experience when he purchased it for his mother:
I think this was probably the best $125 dollars I’ve spent in a while, and I’d do it again in the same situation in a heartbeat. Consider AA’s Five Star Service to be stamped with the MJ on Travel seal of approval.
