Flagship Access when connecting to Central America Next Day?

Flagship Access when connecting to Central America Next Day?

  1. Levi

    Good morning!

    I was wondering if I would be allowed access to the flagship lounge when flying LAX>JFK>MIA>PTY on same itinerary? I leave friday morning and have a overnight layover in Miami before connecting to Panama the next day. Will I be able to access the flagship lounge in LAX and JFK? I am an Ex Plat and have called a few times regarding this…The first person I spoke told me no but did not seemed that informed and/or knowledgable on the matter. However, I called back and another person told me it should not be an issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks, Levi

    [USER=1292]@Levi[/USER] you would not be able to access the lounge if you were traveling within North America or between the U.S., Canada, Mexico (except Mexico City), the Bahamas, Bermuda and the Caribbean. You should be fine going to PTY.

    Good to know! That’s what I was thinking after looking through AA.com, thanks for the info [USER=79]@Gaurav[/USER]

    How long is your connection in Miami? That will make the difference, I think.

    You have access on [I]same-day[/I] international itineraries, or on those connecting within six hours the next day, so that’s the grey area. PTY is definitely considered to be international though.

    [USER=7]@Tiffany[/USER] My layover is 12 hours :/ With that itinerary, that was the only option for me when connecting through JFK was to have the long layover. I land at 830pm Friday and leave Saturday at 945am…Do you think that will be an issue? Or should I try calling again to see? Thanks!

    Honestly, and this might just be my jaded travel perspective, I would just worry about it at the airport. The lounge agents are likely to be more flexible and understanding of the situation than someone on the phone, in my experience.

    Thanks for clarifying that [USER=7]@Tiffany[/USER]–I was reading quickly and thought the question was about access in MIA. [USER=1292]@Levi[/USER] I agree with Tiffany–agents are much more likely to be flexible, at least for an EXP. I don’t have any status with AA and they let me bring in three adults with my Citi Prestige once.

    [USER=7]@Tiffany[/USER] thanks again for your reply! I will go ahead a give it a try and hopefully it’ll work in my favor. [USER=79]@Gaurav[/USER] fingers crossed they’ll be flexible since I will only be traveling solo, thanks again you guys!
