    Title says it all, I'm getting some conflicting info from the AA and AS websites regarding the policy for board room access when traveling internationally. I would imagine that i wouldn't be allowed in, but it dose say this on the Alaskan airlines page in AA's partner airlines section:

    "Additional oneworld airline recognition and benefits"

    http://www.aa.com/i18n/AAdvantage/earnMiles/travel/airlines/alaska.jsp

    Just wondering if anyone else have any experiences?

    You can access the Alaska Airlines Board Room as:

    * A member
    * A member of AA or DL lounge programs
    * A paid first class passenger on AS
    * An award first class passenger on AS

    You will not access it as a coach passenger on another ariline regardless of status on that airline.

    But I haven't read the Board Room access rules in many years, so someone will undoubtedly correct me if I am wrong :)

    When did Admiral's Club membership start providing Board Room access? I don't see anything on aa.com showing they've been added. I know there's a thread on TOBB about discussions that may be underway but have not seen anyone report they've been able to access the Board Room with an AC membership.

    Sorry you are correct, I had internalized this had happened but was wrong!

    I can't see why AA would post a link on the Alaska page to One World benefits being that Alaska is not in One World. Probably just a matter of someone not proofreading it before it was posted. The very top of the linked page lists the One World carriers, and you won't see Alaska there. About the only benefit I regularly see with Alaska is early boarding. If reciprocal lounge access is offered down the line that would be great, but we're just not there yet.

    I often go to Anchorage, and the only time I was allow to get in the Board Room was the one time I had a first class ticket, because they don't have an agreement with AA about AC/BR sharing yet!!!
