LAX First is still closed as of today. Hoping it's open for my OZ flight next week...

Posting partially to monitor progress, I have an AA flight (as a Oneworld Emerald) w/ a schedule change that I could request to reroute thru LAX in May, with a 3-hour layover.

AA's Terminal 4 has an airside connector to TBIT and the Qantas lounge I believe? How long would y'all say it takes to walk between the two?

10 minutes at a moderate pace, especially if you stay up at the corridor level which is the one the lounges are on (gates are down)

Could be when the lounge 'reopens' with longer operating hours; before it used to be on select hours of the day.

Any rumours as to when the LAX F will reopen?

Since it never opened end of March when they started selling F , I have a feeling it’s going to be some time they seem to be in no hurry (similar to the AA First dining at Lax)

Kind of a related question...I'll be traveling in a couple of days JFK-LAX-SYD on AA in F and then in F on QF. Is time best spent in the Flagship lounge or the OneWorld/QF Business Lounge?

You could hop around a bit given that you'll land into T4. There's champers (Piper-Heidsieck) last time I was at the AA FFL, and the food offering is better (though you'll likely be full on your flight to LAX), but there's more space, better coffee, and a better bar in my opinion at the OW J lounge.

Actually I was let into the *alliance F (surprised) on a oneworld F ticket. Small, with a menu and quite nice. Much better than the flagship lounge (which I also visited). The QF lounge only opened in the late afternoon and I was there before that time.

Oh! How long ago was this? Any idea if they’re offering that to OWE or just F passengers?

A week ago. I don't know about OWE but I was surprised that JL didn't have any lounge for F in international - turns out they did just not advertised or on the web afaik.

In past years QF has used both Star and Skyteam lounges sporadically to augment their facilities as needed, and it was only for class of service not Oneworld status. Air France had a great lounge for a year but didn't keep it up. I wouldn't expect OWE to ever get into the *F lounge these days.

Have a flight coming up in QF F in the near future. For the past week, the Qantas app has listed the LAX International Business Lounge as the lounge option in my itinerary. Today, it shows nothing. It could mean something, it could mean nothing - interpret it as you will. Just thought I'd share though.

Take this with the source in mind, but I asked when the LAX F lounge was going to open when I was at the J lounge last night. The QF employee said that they were hoping by June it would be open. I didn't ask what the hold up was.
