Good news for AA travelers to/from the Pacific Northwest and Alaska that belong to the Admirals Club.  Club members can now access the Alaska Airlines Board Room in Seattle, Portland, and Anchorage when traveling on an AA operated or marketed flight.  Go to for more details.

This is especially good news for Seattle AA’ers who’ve been without an Admirals Club for a few years, itself, a disappointing turn of events after the new Club in Seattle had not been open for that long.  According to AA’s website, it’s working on other club access options for members.  I wonder if they’ve begun to notice a dent in memberships now that they admit Amex Platinum and Centurion Card members?
