I'm not aware of the one day pass option but trying the 30 day pass option so will let you know.  The Admirals Club still have it listed as an option of their website as long as you are flying Qantas.

The 30 day pass allows for the holder and 2 guests as noted by others above.

Cheers

My understanding is the 1 day passes are not valid outside AA.  They are not memberships like the 30 day membership or regular AA membership.

30 day pass worked perfectly. I was given access to the lounge with two guests no problem. The lady even went to check & confirmed all was ok.

My above post applied to the lounge in Sydney where the lady was very helpful and accommodating. Sadly LA was not the same.  The pass is only valid for the member and one other in Qantas lounge, Tom Bradley terminal. Apparently allowed two guests at admirals club in terminal 4.

Have just purchased an Admirals Club 30 day membership. The access information on the OS seems a bit outdated or inaccurate, particularly when it comes to the actual Qantas lounges that can be accessed in Australia. I (possibly incorrectly) believed that you could access both the Qantas Club or Business Lounge at Sydney T3 yesterday with the membership but was told at the Business a Lounge desk that as I wasn't flying business I had to use the Qantas Club. I'll let you know how entry to the Business Lounge goes in Melbourne T2 on Tuesday (flying QF93 economy).

In 9/14 had no issues with AA 30 day pass in Qantas International Lounges in either SYD or LAX.  One pass, two (children) guests.   LAX lounge very busy though - you'd want to be there early.    Used AA lounge at JFK (no problems of course), didn't get chance to try Qantas as it wasn't open when I left.

Recommend downloading the Admiral's Club Membership Guide off the AA website for latest info.   The rules are pretty clearly spelled out there.

The rules for the partner airlines lounges are particular to that airline, not American Airlines though.  As an example I just purchased the 30 day membership again for a trip for my partner and I to NZ.  No issues in Sydney but on the return via Auckalnd Qantas lounge the lady was not sure about the option and said she had no method of looking it up. At that point we were going to be turned away until she asked a colleague and she told her that she knew of the admirals club option and we were allowed in.

Hello, I am flying to NZ with my partner in June with Qantas, we are flying economy. If I purchase a 30 day membership with American Airlines Admiral Club, are we eligable to use the Qantas Lounge. Sorry for the repeated question I just want to confirm as the other questions do not state if they are flying business or economy etc. 

Thanks

I had a recent flight from Melbourne to Miami and have the 30 day Admirals Club membership. No worries getting into the Qantas Club at Melbourne, but the LAX-Miami flight left from the Tom Bradley Terminal and they wouldn't let me in to the Qantas lounge there.  I think this is justified on their part as the 30 day membership allows access to "Select Qantas Clubs when departing on the same day on a Qantas operated flight or an American marketed flight operated by Qantas".  The Miami flight was AA-operated so doesn't fit the bill, and they did say if I had left from Terminal 4 as the flight was originally supposed to, I could have used the Admirals Club there.

BUT since the flight back to Melbourne is Qantas-operated, I should be able to access the LAX Qantas lounge on the way back.  Right?
