American business check in-JFK

I have not flown out of JFK, since October, 2001. Our flight will be international to St. Martin. My guestion is simple, I know there is a first class/business check in, does American have a first class, business line for security, x-ray etc. Continential, and Virgin have this so I am hoping to have the same easy experience. Also Contiential has a pick up area outside securtity (for all Classes) that will provide a golf cart to the gate. Does American have this service!

American has terminal 8 and terminal 9 at JFK. Flew first class to San Juan out of terminal 9 and there was a separate check in, but no seperate security line. But then again, it was about 5am in the morning and we were all lined up waiting for security to open.

Just back, I used the premium security line. Its really not a line, its one security line, but the check in desk told me to go to the right of the line,
yes they put us through at the very front. Nice to know, so I thought I would pass it on!
