I'm departing for YYZ from ORD in a week or so. I'll have plenty of time to kill and so the Flagship Lounge comes to mind. The lounge is at the extreme of Concourse K and most YYZ flights seem to leave from G or H. Is access between the concourses easy, or indeed possible, without tackling security? I used the lounge quite a few years ago but can't remember. Many thanks.

Been there many times, easy to access and the AAngels inside are very good at personally reminding you when you need to leave to catch your flight.

Agreed the AAngels are wonderful and attentive to your needs however it's not much of a lounge to want to spend a heap of time in IMHO.

G & H are quite accessible airside from the F/L at the end of K, although you could allow 15 minutes to get to the nether ends of G. If your flight is to depart from G you might stage to the small A/C there for a short breather before boarding begins.

I was there yesterday during massive problems getting from DEN-BOS. In my opinion it is the equal of any QF domestic J lounge with lots of hot food and an open self serve bar if you drink.

It is the lounge for international pax so it has to be better than the regular lounge.

Yes, definitely easy to walk between concourses. Although it is a bit of a hike from K19 to the end of G.

In fact, T1, 2 and 3 are all connected airside and it's easy to walk between them.

Having been at the ORD FL (just a couple of weeks ago) and the SYD QF domestic J lounge, I completely agree. Clearly a bit cozier than the SYD J lounge though, might be 10% the size! Still a good spot to wax away a few hours in my mind. They have sushi if you're there early enough, as the FL serves the JL ORD-NRT flight as one of its major reasons for existence, not sure if the sushi is available all day though.

And, as noted, no need to deal with security to change among the T3 concourses at ORD. They extend like fingers on a hand, and only connect at the base of each concourse, so do allow 15 minutes as noted to get to the G gates if your flight is departing from there.

It is probably my favourite AA lounge because every time I am there, they have Hpnotiq at the bar.
Have not seen it available in the LAX F/L before..

Was in the ORD FLounge yesterday, been there a few times, like the staff and the lounge is cosy and qaint, but with no showers and after long haul usually from Europe I have to make a detour to the AC on the way to the FLounge
