Lounge Access Questions Platinum AAdvantage

Hi guys,

This is the first time I am posting here so please move this thread if not in right place. I am a Platinum AAdvantage member. I am going to India next month. I have a flight from ORD-LHR on British. Am I allowed to go to any lounges in Chicago or London? I have never been to a lounge. Thanks.

As AA Plat you'll have access to the BA lounge at ORD. If you're flying BA on to India, then you'll also have BA lounge access in London; otherwise if you're not on BA you won't.

What class of service are you in (coach, WT+, business, first)? In business or higher, then you'd get lounge access regardless of your Oneworld Sapphire status.

Oh and welcome to FT!

There's an extensive thread on this subject here:
Help Desk: Lounge Access Rules

Also, my oneworld Lounge Access Wizard.

Peace.

Enjoy the BA Lounge in LHR. The J Lounge there is better than any of AA's Flagship Lounges.

Agree. I think most of the international One world lounges are better than the AA flagships. I spend a lot of time in the QF lounges in Sydney, Auckland, Brisbane and they are nice.

Actually, I think the AA Flagship Lounge at JFK is as nice as the BA J lounge. BA F or Concord Room is a different animal however.

I'd also rate the AAFL over BA J at JFK, in fact I'd rate it over BA F at JFK too. Pity they're in different terminals.

I agree. But I was actually talking about AA at JFK vs. BA at LHR.

I may even prefer the AA Flagship at JFK over the LHR T5 F lounge. The latter is often to crowded and the food offerings not of great quality. And: staff at AA louinges are alsways so helpful for queries and problem solving. I do like the F lounge at LHR T3 though. Smaller but nices atmosphere.
