Why would an AC post be moved to the PC forum? ACs are now system wide for US and AA.

Has anyone frequented the lounge in GRU recently at the new terminal (3)? I know they closed the one at T2 and they are using a third party vendor in the mean time. Are there AA agents working the temp club? And are they really building a new one?
Was there Saturday 02/21. No AC yet, they're using the TAM/LAN lounge as well as the GRU Lounge. Both had some bites and an ok drink selection. Plenty of seating and surprisingly nice restrooms on the JJ lounge.

As the facility serves AA/ US and will be serving the "new" consolidated American Airlines, it will relocate to the American Airlines | AAdvantage (Combined Airlines and Programs forum.

IMO, they're not that far apart. I'd give a slight edge to the Tam lounge. It's bright, plenty of comfortable seating, some views of the terminal below, showers, cool restrooms...

The GRU Club is pretty open, though a weird layout. There are quasi-separate seating areas throughout. It's a bit darker and smaller. I tried the salad and it was tasty, they had some warm food there as well.

In the end, they're about 100 feet from each other, so easy to visit both and choose the one you like better.

There's also a GRU First Class lounge right in front of the Tam lounge. It looked nice, comfortable, private. But I'm not sure what's the deal, it seemed open (TV monitors were on, lights were on, I could see nice booze in the counter), there was no one there and the automatic doors wouldn't open.

To get to either lounge, just go up the escalators immediately after passport control.

GRU Lounge

Right now the lounge is at T3 but the AA agent at GRU. It's not an AC per se, but a generic lounge. The gate agent at GRU told me the other day that they are building a new AC back in T2. Not sure if it's true, but it would seem like the right idea.
