Admirals Club access??

I just booked a first class awards ticket using my Alaska Airlines mileage points and the majority of my flights are operated by American Airlines. I am booked from YVR-LAX-MIA (using Class A and Z) and returning MIA-DFW-YVR (using classs Z and U). During any part of my travel, do I have complimentary access to the Admiral's Club lounges? If so, at which airports? Thanks in advance!!!

IF your LAX-MIA segment is truly booked in Z inventory, then YES, as follows:

- On the same day as your LAX-MIA segment, you will have access to the Admirals Club at LAX
- If your LAX-MIA segment is sold with 3 classes of service (and therefore operated with the 772), then you also will be able to use the Flagship/First Class lounge
- You also will have access to the Admirals Clubs upon arrival at MIA


You will not have any other complimentary Admirals Club access unless you happen to be a paid AC member, a QP member, an AMEX Platinum cardholder, OR if you have OW Sapphire/Emerald status on an airline other than AA.

As you correctly point out, only if he is booked in Z all the way through. OP should check double check to make sure they aren't booked in Z and U (for the lax-mia portion)?

If in U, there will only be admirals club access at LAX... not flagship.
