AAFlagship Lounge Still Available For Transcon F?

Thu Jan 23, 2014 2:12 am

Just wondering. AA has conflicting information on their website.

The Flagship lounge page says yes. But that page also looks old.

The new page touting the A321 says that F pax get "Admirals Club access."

I'm looking to book a transcon with miles and one reason to go with F is the Flagship lounge.

Thanks.

If you fly three-class F between MIA-LAX, JFK-SFO or JFK-LAX, you have FL access.

If you fly two-class F or three-class J, you get AC access.

That's how it's always been. But the A321 page, which is the aircraft that they are moving 3-class domestic to, has contrary information. That is the newest page AA has, created post merger. That's why I'm asking for solid clarification.

It is wrong.

And it hasn't always been that way. The new policy was adopted September 1st, 2012; you used to have to be on a paid full-fare 3-class F or Anytime 3-class F award to use the Flagship Lounge. Now, anybody can access if sitting in that cabin.

The new policy also allows people with sticker upgrades to access the AC, but it's limited to three routes.

I've been in F lounge on saaver award in past well before 2012. Maybe AA changed it and then unchanged it?

Anyway, used saaver award yesterday for F on the A321 and had access to LAX F lounge.
