Well, we're about to find out. TPG intern Kevin Song has kindly volunteered to spend this week touring the East Coast, visiting Admirals Clubs old and new with his brand-new Citi / AAdvantage Executive World Elite Mastercard. In addition to full lounge access (even when he's not flying AA), Kevin's getting 75,000 AAdvantage bonus miles after spending $7,500 in the first 3 months — which should more than make up for his week on the road.

From tomorrow on, we booked all of Kevin's flights using British Airways Avios, for a grand total of 18,000 Avios. Add in the free lounge access and last-minute hotel deals booked on Hotel Tonight, and we got quite a steal on this last-minute East Coast itinerary.

We're going to remain tight-lipped about his schedule for now, so follow along with Kevin's daily reports — he'll be sharing his experience from each airport every afternoon through Friday, reporting on the free (and for-purchase) snacks, Wi-Fi performance and his overall impressions of each lounge. Keep an eye out for the first report later this afternoon.

Day One: Admirals Club - Chicago O'Hare (ORD)
Day Two: Admirals Club - New York LaGuardia (LGA)
Day Three: Admirals Club - Philadelphia International (PHL)
Day Four: Admirals Club - Boston Logan International (BOS)
Day Five: Admirals Club - Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA)
