There's a bit of buzz around the aviation blogosphere about non-AA oneworld Sapphires/Emeralds losing their Admirals Club lounge access on AA flights within North America. Has anybody heard anything conclusive?
The hype is due to the change in wording on the oneworld site...

It's on thw Oneworld website and North America includes Canada, Mexico and the Carrabean. A lot of Americans have their status due to Oneworld status rather than AA (it's a lot cheaper). Fly AA credit your BA avios. NOT HAPPY JAN!

Every Admirals Club I have been to has been worse than every other lounge I've ever been to. Given CX or BA have lounges in SFO, LAX, JFK, chicago, boston..etc etc that i know of, I am not too devastated.
You have to pay for food and get 2 drinks per visit or something. seriously??

If this is true, then I hope that the rest of Oneworld starts blocking AA frequent flyers from entering their lounges in retaliation. They're not the best lounges out there, but it is nice to have somewhere to go on a layover - I'll be giving my domestic economy class travel to UA from now on I think (and making sure I reach Star Gold every year).
