Single Cabin Flights with First Class Connection

    Hi guys,

    I used my AA miles for my flight through CLE-ORD-HKG-BKK next week. While the ORD-HKG is on CX F, the CLE-ORD is operated by a ERJ145 (unfortunately) which only has economy and I do have an overnight connection at ORD. In this case would I be able to get priority access and all of those Business/First Class perks at CLE? (I don’t have any status on AA) I have a tight schedule getting to the airport and the AA agents are not helping me at all when I ask about this issue.

    Many thanks in advance!

    [USER=889]@David Choi[/USER], what perks are you looking for specifically? Access to the first class check counter?

    So long as everything is on the same ticket, you should get most of the Business/First Class perks by virtue of connecting to CX F. That means you should get first class check-in, priority security lines, and possibly even priority boarding (although, that doesn’t really matter since you have to gate check all but the smallest carry-ons on an ERJ anyways). I think by virtue of the lack of a same day connecting flight you probably wouldn’t get lounge access, but that doesn’t matter anyways since CLE doesn’t have an AA lounge. The other thing you probably don’t get, and I could be wrong, is access to preferred seating assignments on the CLE-ORD leg, unless you have AA status to begin with.
