Qantas club members are allowed in the lounge regardless of status i believe. So it doesnt matter that you are Silver. Your membership should get you in.
No unfortunately got new passport last year and used in UK but not USA. ESTA is done

Or you could be radical and catch the train. Surf liner runs from union station to San Diego several times a day.
Yeah was considering that option if miss connection. Less than half price of rebooking later flight . Already using that train for return trip as ongoing Qantas flight to NYC leaves at 0820 so have to stay at LAX hotel for night before ;)

If not, and assuming Qantas check your bags through to San Diego the fastest option is to clear border controls and then find the connection bridge over to the AA terminal. Don't exit and walk around as TSA inside the AA terminal is diabolical!
Yes they are different . Was told by TA could not book SD leg on same ticket from Brisbaneas the leg to NYC a week later qualified as the “connection” and only one “allowed” . As such booked AA flight directly with AA

Two hours is the min connecting time at LAX so your 3 1/2 hrs should be easy.

Amtrak a pleasant way to travel. Normally reliable. Great views of Pacific Ocean beaches.
