Question about LAX lounge access

Question about LAX lounge access

  1. MarkS

    So I have a question for the oneworld experts. I think I know the answer but want to verify. I am traveling on QF in first arriving LAX early AM with a departing same day AA flight in first domestically. I do not have any status with OW. From this article looks like no access to the QF first international lounge, even though they now will admit you back inside after customs


    So if not, is there a AA lounge I’m granted access? Recently cancelled my Prestige card (even though still have it). Apparently they don’t have any arrival lounges which is surprising. And there doesn’t seem to be any Priority Pass lounges on the AA domestic side, although technically I can get into the Korean TBIT business class lounge. (Is that worth it?)

    Only want to shower after the long flight.

    Thanks for any help.

    If your domestic flight is on the same PNR as your international flight you should have access to the T4 AA lounge which has showers, per the website.

    Thanks [USER=184]@MidSouth Skier[/USER]. But that verbiage suggests access to the QF first lounge. Yet I’ve read where people have been denied.

    I came back from the South Pacific in Fiji Air business class, connecting to AA and had no issues getting in the AA club.

    I think it’s generally oneworld Emeralds getting denied access at the QF LAX lounge, for one reason or another. I think you would have access based on your inbound flight, given the following rule:

    [INDENT][I]”First and Business Class customers connecting on the same day of travel, or before 6am the following day, can access the lounge when travelling between an international long haul (a [B]one[/B]world international long haul flight is defined as an international flight marketed and operated by any [B]one[/B]world carrier with a scheduled flight time longer than 5 hours) and an international short haul or domestic flight (and vice-versa).”
    If for whatever reason they denied you access, you’d certainly have access to the oneworld lounge across the way, which also has showers, and as [USER=184]@MidSouth Skier[/USER] says, the AA lounge wouldn’t be a problem either.
