Hi Everyone I am a Platinum QFF and have an AA issued ticket from Vancouver Island, BC to Nashville, TN. I have been advised that several of the legs are to be flown on Alaskan Airlines ( Victoria - Seatle, Seatle - Chicago).

Qantas Club, Gold and Platinum only get lounge access if connecting to/from a Qantas operated a flight. No other benefits apply.

From recent experience of being turned away (QF gold on AA ticket operated by Alaskan) - no you don’t get any lounge access. Also you should arrive to Seattle very early as your QF card won’t put you at the front of the screening queue. Took me an hour and a half just to get to the X-ray scanner on a Monday morning.

I think you'll find the issue was that you were on a AA ticket. AA's relationship with Alaskan ended at the start of this year. If you had been on a QF ticket, you would have been OK. The issue is that it needs to be in conjunction with a QF ticket to/from Australia.
Hopefully we should be in "transit and not have to change terminals etc as we have a 2 hour connection. Not sure what the deal will be with baggage allowance?
