Two Boarding Area bloggers reporting major change to AA Club Access for OneWorld elites

Many BA Golds and Silver like their access to Admirals Clubs and Flagship lounges when travelling on American Airlines within the USA.

Two of my fellow bloggers (GhettoIFE and One Mile At A Time) are reporting this and are saying that this has been removed, based on changes to the OneWorld web site. The offending page is here, which certainly supports what they say.

Not good news if true.

I tweeted American and they said that there had not been a change as far as they knew.

  1. I strongly suspect oneworld’s copy writers updated the oneworld website with incorrect wording.

    Let’s look at the evidence so far:

    No official announcements from oneworld or any of it’s constituent carriers of a change to access rules;
    FlyerTalkers have received verbal assurances from lounge AAngels and AA customer services that oneworld elites can still use AA lounges when they’re travelling on NA itineries;
    FlyerTalkers are still accessing AAdmirals Clubs and Flagship Lounges across the US by virtue of their oneworld elite status;
