AA Lounge Access - Qantas FF Gold Member. Hi All, I will be travelling within the US on an AA Ticket later this year. As a QFF Gold Member, will i have access to the Admirals Club lounges? I have read that there are some exclusions for solely North American Itineraries. Thanks!

Yes you will have access to the Admirals lounge as long as you present your QFF Gold Card.
The exclusions for North American Itineraries apply only to AA's own Aadvantage members.
As per the oneworld website:

TRB is exactly right.
The domestic exclusion is also indeed a weird little quirk that can sometimes work to your advantage (no pun intended!) and the other 50% not. As a Platinum AAdvantage with AA I am allowed unfettered access to domestic Qantas Clubs lounges when flying domestically with QF but cannot access domestic Admirals Club lounges for domestic US flights (although no problems when I am leaving the US on an international itinerary, of course)). The wortkaround for me is to have a backup corporate Qantas Club membership, which then gives access to Admirals Club lounges also. (not paid for by me, thank goodness!)
