I will be flying JNB to LAX on Qatar Air (Business Comfort fare). When I arrive at LAX (Bradley Terminal), I have a connecting flight from LAX to PHX on AA (First Class) out of Terminal 4. Will I be able to use AA Flagship First check in at Terminal 4 by showing them my QR business boarding pass? or will I have to go to the “regular” AA first class check in counter?
Nope, unless you have elite status. Unfortunately you’ll just have to use the regular check-in (or business class check-in). Flagship First is reserved for First Class (on three-cabin planes) and Executive Platinum members on any international itinerary.
I actually contacted AA Customer Service and they said that “Yes” I would be able to use Flagship First Check In with the itinerary I indicated and that I just needed to show them my QR business class boarding pass for admittance. I see on FlyerTalk that there is a lot of Flagship First Check In access problems at LAX but I will still give it a shot.
