Alaskan Board Room and Citi AA Exec cardholder access
I headed to SeaTac for the Board Room’s 5am opening to get some work done. My wife(primary) and I just renewed our card and this is the first time either of us would have been to a Board Room.
The Alaskan associate at their main location near D1 stated that only the primary cardholder receives complimentary access because AA won’t reimburse for authorized users.
I felt I’d done my usual amount of research(including your posts)prior and hadn’t seen anywhere that made the distinction between the primary and authorized.
Their associate said this happens all the time. Sigh.
This is correct. The Executive card gives an Admirals Club [I]membership[/I] to the primary user (which would then get them Board Room access), and [I]access[/I] to Admirals Clubs to additional users (not Board Rooms).
