AA OW Saphire & Emerald status won't get you into AA Lounge in ORD. AA Domestic flights you can check in ahead pretty much anytime on the day of flying. Heard that there is a yoga lounge in ORD.

The good news is that you can access the lounges. I'd recommend the Flagship lounge (of which there is one in ORD).
My post before, assumes you have Oneworld Emerald or Sapphire status and not Qantas Club (specifically for ORD AA lounge access).

All depends on OW status, if you hold AA status may depend on class of travel as to whether you can access the Flagship lounge. If QF Plat/Emerald will be absolutely no issue into the Flagship lounge which actually in ORD is a very good lounge, it’s one of the recently refurbished AA lounges and is of a good quality with good food & beverage selectiom
Thanks so much for the replies everyone. I am QF Gold, so hopefully it gets me in several hours early without too much hassles! Hopefully they'd let me check in 4-5 hours or so before the flight..

QF gold will get you access to the AA flagship lounge in ORD (which is quite a nice space now the reno is complete) have a great time there.
You will be all good to go then.
The oneworld guest access rules state they need to be travelling on an oneworld operated and marketed flight. It’s worth asking though.

Try to minimise AA lounge time at ORD. limited everything, always underwhelming IMO.
