I'm looking at redeeming miles for an LAX-JFK flight in F. I can get a MileSAAver ticket with 32,500 AA miles. This books into class Z which (according to http://www.aa.com/i18n/travelInformation/airportAmenities/AAFlagshipLounges.jsp) gives me access to the Flagship Lounge at LAX. I never fly F, and certainly never get access to the FL so I thought it would be fun to try. I can book the same flight in F on ba.com using 37,500 BA miles. Since the redemption is only 5000 more, I think I'd rather spend these and keep my AA miles available. But, ba.com doesn't show what class this books into. Since this is the perfect (and likely only) chance I have at experiencing the FL, if my BA-booked ticket won't allow me access, I'll probably go with the AA redemption route. I have not yet called BA to ask, but does anyone here know what class the BA ticket will be? Will I have access to the FL? Anyone think my reasoning is flawed or just plain stupid?
