    Hi Guys

    I'm flying from (most likely) Terminal C on Monday to CUN. Wanted to use my 2 free AC passes which is in Terminal A. Will security or long walks between terminals be an issue in your opinion?

    I don't think you can hoof it from A to C, but you could take the train between terminals.

    Air Canada is in a separate pier from the United Flights so there's no shuttle however one can reclear security in A again then take the bus over to C or alternatively the AirTrain to C and clear security from there.

    I only recommend this if the OP has plenty of time.

    If the OP is looking to use Air Canada MLL (Maple Leaf Lounge) coupons in EWR there is no AC MLL in EWR. You cannot use the MLL coupons in *A lounges. The list of AC MLL locations is here

    This.

    AC flies out of terminal A at EWR but they do not have their own lounge there so the OP will not have access using an AC MLL pass. AC also doesn't have a lounge at LGA, though rumors have them taking over the legacy CO lounge at LGA when UA moves out.

    And my point remains the same.

    :confused:
    I was agreeing with you. And adding a bit more information. But still agreeing with you that the OP will not have access.

    Guess I did not see your 'wandering' style ;)

    AC was meant to mean Admiral's Club. Sorry for the confusion guys, does that change anything?

    Well, there will be a club at least. ;)

    Still, you'll be clearing security an extra time and the club isn't all that much to write home about. Unless you're forced to be at EWR more than 3 hours in advance of the flight I probably still wouldn't bother.

    definitely don't want to deal with security a second time. and looking through the day passed T&C they actually don't expire until 12/2013, I was worried it was 2012! So I should have plenty of opportunities to use them in my upcoming trips.

    any comments about lounges in ORD, HNL, and SFO?

    HNL would be an excellent choice, it's a very nice one but it's not an Admirals Club so you'd have to use it in ORD or SFO.

    While it is operated by JAL it is also staffed with AA employees and some systems still call it an Admirals Club. The passes might actually work.

    If that's the case then the OP would be better off using them at HNL as it's an excellent lounge.

    Agreed - it's a nice facility.
