I definitely prefer the AA Arrivals Lounge. The shower rooms are far better appointed and more spacious and IMO, the food is better too. Plus for the alcoholics you can get champagne with your breakfast on the AA side.

On the other side, I would upgrade to F on BA any reasonable time (GUF, enough avios, minimal difference over CW).

The step up from J to F on the A321T is much more pronounced than on the 77W. In fact, LHR-JFK-LAX/SFO J to F is one of my favorite uses of the SWUs I get from AA (especially now with Flagship Dining), where I would hardly consider upgrading just LHR-JFK, or even LHR-LAX.
