Good day guys, I'm oneworld Emerald. I'm flying Y on AA metal (all ticketed as AA flight numbers) from Sydney to Seattle via LAX. I have a 6 hr transit in LAX. Which lounge am I eligible for? I read up on Qantas And AA sites but was confused and hoping you all can answer. Cheers, Vikram

As a OW emerald you will have access to the Qantas First lounge at LAX

You will also have access to the AA flagship lounge in terminal 4.

Use the QF First Lounge. You can access airside AA domestic gates from the Tom Bradley Terminal via the link way. Just allow a reasonable time to walk depending on which terminal you are departing. Most go from T4 so not too far.
Thank you all!
The flagship lounge may be better. The (at time slow and not flash) table service is not there but the buffet isn't too bad.

I'd use the Flagship lounge. The Qantas 1st lounge isn't what it used to be, and the AA lounge has one important benefit: windows!

Lax first seriously overrated - flagship for sure.

Personal preference but the Flagship Lounge for AA over QF. Like to be loyal to Qantas but the LAX lounge is a bit tired (maybe been there too often).
