I was flying back home on Alaska Airlines from Mexico City to Los Angeles and I didn’t know if I could access the Admiral’s Club Lounge. I know that Alaska Airlines codeshares with American Airlines, but I did have my Executive Platinum number on my Alaska ticket. I didn’t know what to expect so I went ahead and tried to get into the lounge.

I went up to the front desk agent and asked if I could get into this lounge flying on Alaska Airlines. She took one look at the ticket and I even presented my American Airlines Executive Platinum card which matched the Frequent Flyer number on the ticket. I even asked if she accepted the Amex Platinum card even though I wasn’t on an American Airlines flight. She went ahead and let me in with no further questions.
The lounge was really empty for an early morning flight which was as expected. The furniture is a little outdated though and reminds me of the 80’s.
The lounge has a business center separated by individually partitioned cubicles.
The buffet spread was standard Mexican fare which consisted of molletes and chilaquiles.
There were also small sandwiches, fruit, yogurt, cereal, whole fruit, and cookies.
In addition, there was water and tea available. For alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, you have to visit the bar area where the bartender will serve you a drink.
I had molletes and chilaquiles which were delicious.
