ONEWORLD LOUNGE LAX
I’ve read about “Customers flying First or Business Class have access to the equivalent class of lounge regardless of their frequent flyer status. First Class passengers may use a Business Class or frequent flyer lounge if a First Class lounge is not available.” on the Oneworld website.
In light of that statement, am I correct to assume that I would have access to the Oneworld Lounge in LAX when departing LAX-MIA in AA J Class from TBIT? Has someone actually accessed the lounge under similar circumstances?
I think you need a same day international flight on a Oneworld carrier to use that lounge.
After checking with the lounge attendant, I was allowed access to the lounge earlier today. She pointed out the following to me:
“Travel On Transcontinental Flight – As a First or Business Class customer, you also have access if you’re traveling on non-stop, transcontinental flights marketed and operated by American Airlines between:
[*]New York (JFK) – Los Angeles (LAX)
[*]New York (JFK) – San Francisco (SFO)
[*]Los Angeles (LAX) – Miami (MIA)”
Whilst I got a sAAver business outbound, wasn’t so lucky on the return so will have 6 hours at LAX following AKL-LAX in Y. I’m an AA Platinum/OW Sapphire – I believe I’ll be able to access the TBIT lounge and that I have access to TBIT even though connecting to domestic? Thanks for any/all tips!

If you are connecting to domestic in Y from LAX, you can’t access the OW lounge in TBIT as far as I know.
Alternatively, you can access Admirals Club in T4 if you are a holder of Citi Prestige card; you can also access KAL Lounge in TBIT or Alaska Air’s Boardroom in T6 if you have the Priority Pass.
