Aspire Lounge at SAN (Partner Lounge for Admirals Club)

Will be flying F out of SAN. I'm unclear if there is a lounge there. The AS website shows there is no AS lounge, but lists "other partner locations" and shows an Aspire lounge at SAN. Will I have complimentary access to that lounge?

No access for F ticket, that only works for Alaska Lounges. You do get access to partner lounges if you have an Alaska Lounge+ membership.

As stated above, unfortunately not for F. Only for Alaska Lounge members.

Unfortunately, no. AS lounge access on F tickets (paid or award) is only good for accessing actual Alaska Lounges (SEA, PDX, ANC, LAX, and JFK). Does not apply to partner or third-party lounges.

If you have Priority Pass you can get in. It closes by 2 PM I believe.

0500 to 2000 now, and no free booze, but it does have a shower.

Lounge is decent, but nothing worth getting to the airport early for. SAN is small and so many good options outside the airport for food/drinks etc.

Opens at 0600 and there is generally a line that has formed by that time given the number of flights departing 0615-0800.

It used to be 6a-2p, but the hours changed. I was in there at 0515 last week. And yes, the am bank is crowded, but I'm glad it's open later now for my aftn/evening flights back to SFO.

Sorry, I was basing my comment on a visit two weeks ago and the hours listed in the link. I guess those have not been updated.

And get a $10 voucher per person (not sure if you'll also get that when using PP).

BTW: good that they extended the operating hours as being open until 1pm was rather useless.
