Sometimes, you pay $450 for a credit card that gives you lounge access, and you get the most value out of the superior customer service offered in the lounge more than the lounge itself.
Just saved $131 on an upgrade to almost a full route of MCE.

Yep, I've found AAdmirals club agents to be very competent with doing small things, almost always able to get an exit row or extra legroom if it's available.

They give it to you, just for asking for it?

If you ask them if there are any available, many times they'll just put you in it for free.

yes it is! I've gotten economy+ on numerous occasions (a few years back pre status days  8)) just by asking (nicely)the gate agent.

The gate agent isn't nearly as helpful as the lounge agent.

Wait by the elevator on lower level and ask the next person walking in to guest you in...
