And either way, Mint on B6 narrowbodies is still better than both Flagship F and J on AA's 777s

Is it? The Thompson Vantage seats feel like coffins when lying down. There's also no lounge access.

The 77W F seats are in horrible shape and the J ones are so-so. With regards to lounge access, there are several options even when Mint doesn't offer it (domestic Mint that is; international Mint now does qualify for AC access).

This is OT, but International Mint qualifies for AC access? How does that work at JFK with AA in T8 and B6 in T5?

Out of luck in that case. Only lounges in T5 are Be Relax and the Aer Lingus one (daily passes for $50 I believe). Sorry but I don't fly Mint for lounge access.

Same way AC members can access JFK T8 AC on domestic B6 flights - you take the bus to T8 and tell the agents it's for using the AC, show proof of BP and (if necessary) AC membership.

At BOS with the B-C connector open as of a few days ago you can just walk to the AC post-security.
