    Does anyone know how long it typically takes to receive luggage tags when ordered off of the AA website? I know in the T&C's, it says 4-6 weeks, but what is your experience with how long they take from being ordered to arriving at in the mail?

    If it's anything like status cards/tags or the Admiral's Club cards/tags, it'll take the stated 4-6 weeks. At least for me.

    I've never paid for just tags though, so no personal experience with that specific avenue.

    Do I need my Plat card to access lounges when flying OW partners? Or does the status on my boarding pass enough?

    I've always been fine with my boarding card, though I have heard stories of some lounge "dragons" demanding validation of status through your elite card. The only time I've been asked for my elite card was when accessing the JL lounge in NRT.

    Also, If you're a new PLT, make sure you call AA to refresh your status on your existing reservations. If you booked the tickets while GLD or without status, the system will not automatically update your reservations with the PLT status.

    Thanks for the heads up on this. I was denied Priority access a few times last month during my MR's as my status was still showing dirt even though I was Gold at the time.

    Well, that might be a different issue....

    If your miles had posted and your new status was showing on your profile when you signed into AA.com, then it might be an issue of your reservations needing to be refreshed.

    But if you had flown your flights and you were taking part in the recent DEQM/TEQM promos, your new status is only awarded AFTER your miles post. Since promos miles do not post the next day like regular flights, you wouldn't have earned the status at that point.

    I got my platinum baggage tags in just about 2 weeks' time.

    It has been a little over two weeks for me so hopefully they come in any day now. :)
