Upcoming trip PDX-LAX-NAN-SYD

Upcoming trip and wanted to ask a few questions, any help would be awesome and thanks in advance.

Uses AA miles to book the trip but will have to be ticketed in PDX, no AA to LAX so I will be on AS and the rest is FJ.

I will be landing T6 and will have to transit to TBIT, get my FJ tix and then go back through security again through TBIT, correct?

1. I am flying J and my question is what priority security lines are available to me flying FJ on an AA award ticket at tbit?

2. Also just to confirm, no 1W steel, no 1W lounge access, so only access to the FJ/shared lounge in TBIT correct?

4. I have GE and that should qualify me for precheck at PDX, but not so at tbit, due to the international part of it correct?

Lastly does anyone have a FJ J class 330 report?

Thanks in advance.

1. I am flying J and my question is what priority security lines are available to me flying FJ on an AA award ticket at tbit? Don't remember if there's a special line at TBIT. If there is, it doesn't matter if your J ticket is an award ticket or not. It is a J ticket.

2. Also just to confirm, no 1W steel, no 1W lounge access, so only access to the FJ/shared lounge in TBIT correct? I'm going on FJ in J this October and expect only the shared lounge.

4. I have GE and that should qualify me for precheck at PDX, but not so at tbit, due to the international part of it correct? There was no prechedk at TBIT last year.

Lastly does anyone have a FJ J class 330 report?

Thanks in advance.

I've done FJ in J on an old 330 I believe in 2012. The staff were delightful and the service was great. I am not a huge foody so my impression about the food will be totally different to what you you. I like simple stuff. The seats were the old style premium recliner seat. Having flown on an angled seat, I would of gladly preferred one of FJ's seats where I could move it in to a relaxing reclining position. Fabulous leg room.

I recall thinking I would be happy to continue on to LAX from NAN. Ok, it's not a Singapore Airlines, Qatar or Emirates J class... but it was certainly acceptable.

Have you checked out the pics on FJ's website. The new pics of J look fabulous.

Have fun.
