T3 One world lounge ?

I will be in T3 in a couple of weeks by which time I will have dropped to a lowly bronze member. However, I will be travelling in J so will I be able to use the CX or AA lounges instead of the BA one ? Does anyone have any insights as to which is the best ?

Um, this has come up quite a bit recently! With CX closed you want BA.

Anyone have commentary on the business class lounges?
You want BA.

Thank you c-w-s. Prompt and efficient as always.
But as a bronze member travelling in CE, would I be eligible to use the AA lounge (or the CX if it was open) if I wished ?
I know the rules have changed somewhat recently.

Access to other OW lounges is based on OW rules and status. I don't think travelling in club would with no lounge status will allow you into any other lounges other than BA.

Incorrect:

Indulge yourself before departure in a wider range of airport lounges when you fly First Class or Business Class with any oneworld member airline.

Customers flying First or Business Class have access to the equivalent class of lounge regardless of their frequent flyer status.

Check-in staff said sometime in mid-October however, no official word.

It's been pushed back again and again and again so I'm sceptical.

Thanks - I had seen many if not most of those but they're nearly all 2+ years old, and I think perhaps prior to the renovation of the Admirals Club.

I have merged two threads on LHR T3 lounges that had posts from yesterday to keep discussions in one place.

If something doesn't make sense in the thread, that would be my fault, not the posters, and I apologise in advance.
