Yes, Thanks I did have a look at this, but there are conflicting comments on whether or not 10A/F has a window. Can anyone confirm it has window?

Excruciatingly wrong detail much of the time.

10A/F indeed has a window. I often pick 9E on a 757 and stare out the 10F window during takeoff and landing.

Ok, Thank you for this confirmation, I have now gone ahead to select 10A.

Lounge Access on US/Canada Trip?

Hi everyone,

Sorry for yet another Question (You guys are very helpful and kind to answer!) Do I get lounge access on this itinerary? I am a CX GO/OW Sapphire.
(I used this tool from the FAQ, and it said I do, but when I plugged in CX Gold, but when I plugged in any level on AA it said no, which cant be right?! http://flyertools.kduarte.com/oneworld-lounge-access/ )

Same Day in Economy: YYZ-LGA JFK-LAS
Same Day in Economy: LAS-MIA (overnight flight) -YYZ

Thanks for response! I really find the AA lounge thing confusing. Most airlines offer lounge access based on status or class of travel, but it seems AA does not offer lounge access for some domestic/Canada/Mexico flights regardless of status or even if your in J.

By virtue of your CX Cold (OW Sapphire) status you will have access to the following:

YYZ - AA Admirals Club
JFK - AA Admirals Club
LAS - No AA or OW lounge available. There are paid lounges available
MIA - AA Admirals Club

Also, before when all miles counted (and now, still), AA keeps track of all the miles you earned. In your AA account, there is a counter called "Million Miler Balance." Thus, you do not need to keep all your earned miles. The system will automatically keep track, even if you redeem them.
Do all One World partner miles credited to AA count? For example, if I fly LAN or BA on a revenue ticket, would the base miles from these activities increase my million miller balance?

Ok Great! I seriously appreciate your response, it is really good to know. Sorry I keep asking so many Questions. I haven't flown AA before on an N. America only itinerary and I have 6 flights with them in May. So I am just trying to get prepared and find out what Im entitled not entitled to, so thanks for the help!

Was I right and thinking AA's own elites are unable to gain access, or was I wrong about that?

You are correct. Unlike the rest of the world, elite status on most American carriers, including AA, does not grant lounge access on domestic itineraries.

Wow, that is strange.. especially considering AA are going to give me lounge access but not one of their own AAdvantage members.

Of course that is presuming they are "giving" access. They may have an agreement like they do with AMEX where a billing transaction occurs when non-AA members access the lounges. It may be more profitable for them to allow per-entry paying customers than members that don't trigger more revenue. After all, they have my money if I get in or not. Hmmmm

One way All Partner Award

I have one way all partner award tickets JFK-LHR-DUS.
What happens if I take only JFK-LHR (AA) and don't take LHR-DUS (BA) flight?
Do I just lose it or get penalized somehow?

If you know that you don't want to fly the LHR-DUS leg, call AA before your JFK departure date, and ask them to remove the LHR-DUS leg from the award. There should be no charge for this, and you may even be entitled to a refund of some fees.
