It should be noted LHR, at least temporarily will shut T3.
"at least temporarily"???
I think we can say that its "of course temporarily".

Of course. However if I had posted T3 is shut full stop, people would be asking if this is permanent.

Thanks I figured as much.

Next year I'm flying AMS-LHR on KLM in business - 3 hour layover - LHR-LAX in VS Upper Class - 2 hour layover - LAX-HNL in Delta First. I have no status.
1. Will I get access to the LHR Clubhouse? (if open by then)
2. Will I get access to the LAX Clubhouse?

As you are in Upper Class, then yes, you would have access to the Clubhouse assuming that VS is back in T3 then. Note that both Terminals 3 (Delta/Virgin's usual home) and Terminal 4 (KLM/Air France/Skyteam's usual home) are closed at present, and these airlines are all currently operating from T2.

Given that you are flying onwards in Delta First, then the "obvious" answer is that you have access to a Delta Skyclub.

I am not familiar with the layout of terminals at LAX, but it is unlikely that your flight will be departing from the terminal where Virgin pax would be departing from; therefore, I think you simply will physically be unable to access the LAX clubhouse. There will be Delta Skyclub though that you can use.

Thanks for the insights! I think that because the LAX-HNL flight is a domestic one in First and not in Delta One, I don't have access to any SkyClub if I'm not mistaken?

Show them in your inbound boarding pass; you are on a same-day connecting international ticket so should have access.

(That said, the website seems to suggest that, when travelling on Delta, you would have to be travelling in Delta One, or have arrived on an international flight operated by Delta and in Delta One - I would have assumed they would have given the same recognition to those arriving on VS Upper Class but it's not stated on the website - so I am no longer sure you would be able to use a Delta lounge at LAX. I'm sure others will weigh in on this point...)

DL/VS both operate out of T2 at LAX. There's both a Skyclub and Clubhouse.

It doesn't matter. You're arriving same day on international J flight (one from UK on top of that). This means you'll have access to BOTH the DL Skyclub and VS Clubhouse (as arriving from UK). DL also has a Skyclub in T3 if by chance flight departs from there. You can still use the T2 SC or CH even if departing T3. (They're connected via shuttle or possibly by then walkway)
