IIRC it needs to be within 3 hours of your departure too (no arrival lounge use sadly)

This is one thing I do appreciate about having an actual AS Lounge membership....the ability to use the lounge upon arrival as I've done when returning to PDX.

Pre-Covid and all the shutdowns I have run through Capers near the B/C security checkpoint at PDX many times without a problem when landing. I'm never sure if I'm just getting lucky or if that is okay. They never seem to look too close at my boarding pass (or even ask for it for that matter).

I've never been in the PDX Alaska lounge but have used the ones at JFK and LAS and don't recall them looking too close at my boarding pass. It's usually just a cursory look to be sure I have one (like the person letting me out the door at Costco). Do they really check that close to be sure it's a departing pass vs. an arrival?

A) Assume it's LAX you're referring to, not LAS
B) Yes, they look at your boarding pass like they do at certain warehouse stores; ensuring you are departing when using PP. AS scans it.​​​​​​

It was LAS but now I'm thinking it wasn't an Alaska lounge.... it was in the newer Alaska terminal. I was also at one a few years back in the older SW Airlines area terminal at LAS. Can't remember what that was either. I usually just look at the Priority Pass app and head to what is on the list.

The one in T3 all the way down one end (North, I think) of the hall? That's the Club or whatever they call it lounge offering access to PP and KE passengers, amongst others.

Answering my own question since I'm in the lounge now....with the exception of the soup and specialty coffee drinks, everything is back to self-serve...even the pancake machine at 8:45pm

Hoping for JFK lounge reopening March 18,2021 ?!

With only one AS flight to JFK through March 17, JFK reopening is doubtful until March 18th, almost 1 year after initial closure. The good news is, if the current schedule sticks, beginning March 18th, there will be 3 flights from SEA, 4 flight from LAX, 4 flights from SFO, and one flight from PDX. March 18 is likely the day. (Flights are very empty however...)

Will we also see UA's guest?!

Same as my recent visit earlier, although the self-serve coffee machine was also available then.

Any updates on the dining situation at LAX, still to-go only?

I fear these will continue to be pushed back. But, the announcement of SAN-JFK is at least a tease there will be some form of commitment to SoCal transcons more broadly.

As long as passenger numbers remain depressed on both carriers, I can see lounge cooperation with UA, as AS directs their club members to the United Club at several stations already.
