RCC access for Canada flight

I'm heading to Toronto tomorrow in upgraded 1st from SFO to YYZ with a connection at ORD. Is this considered an international flight for RCC access?

Looks like you'll get lounge access.

As a 1P, I got lounge access in ORD and BOS on a SEA-ORD-BOS-YHZ trip on AC/UA. I got some funny looks, but no one disputed that I was allowed access into the RCC.

I'm still very confused, even after looking through the thread above. I will be flying via IAD and DEN en route to YVR in August. My parents will be flying from BOS via DEN. All of us are in NF on UA (except my IAD-DEN is NC). We'll be coming through ORD on the return.

Where can we access RCCs and/or Int'l F lounges? We'll be using the MLL in YVR when we come back. FYI, 2 of us are 1P and 1 is 2P. Also, can we use the Arrivals facility at ORD on the way back?

According to Star Alliance's website, you can basically use the lounge (if you're 1P or higher) at any airport you'll be through on your way to YVR. The 1P can also bring a guest into the RCC as well.

<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">Star Alliance Gold card holders and one guest, have access to any lounge that is identified with a Star Alliance Gold lounge sign when departing on a Star Alliance flight. Note: UA's Star Gold customers have access to US Red Carpet Clubrooms only when they present a ticket or boarding pass in conjunction with international travel (outside the US).</font>
Definitely no for the ORD arrival lounge as that's only good for paid C/F class.

Although this thread is mainly about MEX, see my comments beginning on May 25 in:
