    This seems like a simple question, but I can't find the answer on AMEX's site, nor has contacting customer service produced an answer ... so I thought I'd ask the REAL experts. ;)

    I am aware that the AMEX Plat grants access to AA lounges with same-day AA ticketing. My question is whether this benefit only applies to Admiral's Club lounges or other OneWorld lounges as well?

    Example: Madrid has no Admiral's Club lounge, but it DOES have an Iberia lounge. If I'm same-day ticketed on AA, will the AMEX Plat grant me access to that lounge?

    The benefit is for AA, DL, and US lounges only.

    In addition, you may request a priority pass from Amex as part of the benefits of the Platinum, and that gives access to a half dozen lounges in MAD with same day travel on any airline.

    So Amex can get you into a lounge there, but by a different mechanism.
