Has anyone tried to access an Admirals Club using an AS lounge membership and an AA boarding pass for a flight marketed by AA but operated by JetBlue?

The Alaska Lounge membership website states that for Admirals Club access: “Flight must be marketed by Alaska Airlines or American Airlines and must be operated by Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, or a regional affiliate.”

So the question boils down to if JetBlue counts as a regional affiliate of American Airlines in this case, which is fuzzy because parts of the AA/B6 Northeast Alliance are fairly similar to a regional feeder operation for American.

JFK Lounge Open Date?

Has anyone seen any info on the reopening date for the JFK Alaska lounge? Will be traveling through there in September and am hoping to check it out for the first time. I assume the closure may still be tied to New York Covid lockdown measures though it seems other lounges there are back open

I don't know for sure but I think that lounge is closed for good.

An optimist view is that they will work out a deal with UA and BA traffic picks up enough to justify opening AS but not enough to open the BA lounges + PP acceptance would make bean counters think its a profitable venture. UA and AS have a few agreements elsewhere so its not like they dont work together when necessary

I could see it being a UA Club that allows Alaska Lounge members.

At this point, I cannot see AS reopening the JFK lounge. It was nice but never very busy pre-Covid when I was there. Now, with the loss of the vast majority of the AS flights into JFK, I just cannot see it opening again. My guess is that we will see some access to the AA lounges and T-7 will be gone before too long.

Doubt

Hello everyone. I was reading Alaska Lounge policies and realized that limit to alcoholic drinks serves to a member or guest is three. I wonder if AA, UA, DL have similar policies.
It is mere curiosity, I do not live in the US, nor have any booked flights on AS, but I am considering booking a F ticket for next year (I know, rules can always change...)
This is no game changer, nor do I look to get drunk! However, on some long layovers (over 4h), weighting 250 pounds I would consider getting a fourth beer (no spirits, though!).
Is this serving policy enforced? How is it compared to other carriers?

Having been a lounge member for over 25 years, I can say that this policy is only loosely enforced .There is one lounge attendant at ANC that is overly zealous about this, but she is easy to spot and mostly I try to avoid her. Pace yourself and you should be fine. And I do not recall that sign being out on my recent visits. It may have changed with the OW alliance.

The last time I was in the lounge at SEA I got a mimosa flight that consisted of 4 various flavoured mimosas. They were all full glasses.

I have on multiple occasions had 4 or 5 drinks (including spirits) and I have never seen them enforce the 3 drink limit. Given the rotation of bar tenders at SEA, I cant see it being a problem there unless you are obviously drunk.

I have had 10 double bourbons and 2 beers in a 3 hour visit, and no one batted an eye. ʕ•ᴥ•ʔ

Oh no. That was always so much fun -- and I didn't know they had mimosa flights.

I guess next time I'll just have to get five full glasses

Doubtful future of JFK Lounge

Sadly, I agree. This summer, AS would have returned 7 flights (2X SEA, 1X PDX, 1X LAX, 1X SFO, 1X SAN) but its route frequencies still are at a reduced levels. In comparison, BA also has not opened any of its 3 JFK lounges, with only 2 of 7 flights currently operating. With both BA and AS uncertain timeline for their move to T8, I believe it is difficult for both airlines to committing post-covid resources for a temporary decision only to close it in the near future.
