As you mention in your next post the Prestige card's weakness has been domestic lounges. However, as per the quote above adding Admiral Club access does not solve the domestic lounge access for those individuals who fly other airlines besides American. Even worse, this access is only being provided to flights on American, American Eagle Airlines Inc., and American Connection carrier flight number even though the new American includes USAirways flights and offers codeshares on USAirways flights. As such, if you fly on the USAirways side of the new American you do not receive any benefits until the two airlines become one.

While I am excited about the addition of Admiral's club access, I am disappointed that it doesn't include access regardless of airline flown or at least include USAirways operated flights.
