I have the Citi/ Advantage Executive Card that includes AC membership. They used to let me in at SCL. Would I be allowed in with family?

There are Priority Pass lounges at SCL if you have a membership with them directly or via another credit card.

You can always try, though. When consolidating lounges they usually get pretty strict regarding access, since there is strain placed on capacity already.

EDIT: I note that you're Platinum with AA. That will get you access as OW Sapphire.
Your post appears to be directly contradicted by the other information in this thread, including the sticky post at the top. Admirals Club members should have access because the Admiral's Club is now closed. It looks like AA has contracted with LATAM to provide access to its Admiral's Club members, including those who are members by virtue of the Citi Executive Card.

Interesting. I saw someone turned away when I was there two weeks ago, but that could be due to the learning curve. I'll delete my post - sorry for the confusion.

Does anyone know if One World Emerald status still gets you access to this lounge or have they cut all One World ties?

LATAM isn't leaving OW until October.

AA has a service desk within the LATAM lounge.

Anyone been to SCL recently? What is the current lounge situation? LATAM is out and the AAdmirals club is closed. It seems like AA is sending passengers to the Andes lounge? But then I've also seen that Andes is currently closed for renovations.

Pacific club in the int'l terminal (Andes is closed). If you have Priority Pass and don't mind a little more walking, go to the Skyteam lounge instead. When I was there last week, there was no line, only half the seats were taken, they now have alcohol including several red/white options and self-pour liquor (I think a lot of their poor reviews were bc they didn't have a liquor license until a couple months ago), and decent food.

The Pacific Club is much smaller, worse food & drink IMO, and way more crowded that time of the evening. When I walked by on the way to the gate, there was probably a dozen or so people in line, and it looked like a slower "one out, one in" capacity situation rather than just being slow to check people in.

AA uses the Pacific Club. It's small and often has a line for entry (presumably paid passes), but J passengers can skip the line.

Were you flying on an AA ticket? The Priority Pass site says that you have to be flying on Skyteam to access the Skyteam lounge (which seems to defeat the point of PP, but I'm not surprised as worthless as it has turned out to be).

Is this not enforced?

That must be new - I don't recall seeing that when I went before and I'm usually pretty good about a quick read of the lounge T&Cs so I'm not disappointed upon arrival. I was flying on AA, ticketed by AA.
