    I understand that if flying business class domestically in the US you don’t get the lounge unless you hold elite status

    If flying Canada to US or vice Versa on a oneworld carrier in business class with no status do you get lounge access ?

    Be mindful that not every airport (or terminal) has a business lounge.

    Can’t answer directly but my experience of all the AA lounges has been mediocre at best… Don’t expect anything except dips/snacks and cookies/brownies… With a paid-for bar.

    I’ve told my travel partner not to chase BA silver and save the cash..it really became evident when he left the AA PHX lounge a month ago to get something to eat!

    So nice to have but like I say don’t expect very much at all.

    I suspect not, there’s a US mindset that the likes of Canada, Mexico, and some of the Caribbean are effectively domestic flights. Also, some airports in Canada have pre-clearance, so you’d be in an restricted part of the airport.

    From AA website. For a limited time: Starting April 1, 2021, qualifying international flights will include flights between the U.S. and Canada, the Caribbean and Mexico.
