On a separate note: I have heard there might be a chance for asking a Concierge Key transfer to the airplane or pick-up at the aircraft door on arrival? Could you explain what this would mean and confirm whether this can be requested? I will be landing on BA metal and flying onward on AA.

I have the same status as you and never had any escort or anyone waiting even when I had a 1 hour 10 min connection in Boston from AA to BA. (Was of course same ticket) I think generally AA just see us as an AA Exp. I think the only way is if you are super important in BA system they can manually alert AA. As I said even Iím GGL with CCR I never fell in that super VIP category I guess if you call BA GGL line they might able to do something about that. Also in my experience AA doesnít do much for their own Concierge Key members either. They got early boarding before everyone else but most of the time I canít see anyone waiting for them at arrivals. International is different (and make more sense to cut through immigration etc).
Donít forget that as BA GGL you can visit the Flagship lounge on both departure and arrival as well. The LAX one during the day is a zoo though so I would get in town ASAP and have a proper lunch/dinner.
