Lounges at LAX

Established in 1928 The Los Angeles International Airport (also known as LAX) is the second busiest airport in North America and the third-busiest in the world. Daily, thousands if not millions of commuters travel through this airport to and from Los Angeles and surrounding areas. LAX serves as the major hub or focus airport in America as Los Angeles is one of the most popular cities in the world. It also is the fastest growing city in the world, therefore making LAX one of the most important airports in the world.

Naturally the lounges at this bustling airport are sure to present a delightful experience, should you choose. Traffic is projected to rise to up to 100 million by 2040 at the LAX and so it is a high probability that you will certainly commute through this spectacle of an airport. From American Express to The Centurion lounges, LAX has it all. World-class lounges have become somewhat of a specialty to the LAX. There are 8 terminals at LAX out of which almost all of them have specialized lounges. Let us look at all of the facilities these various lounges have to offer.

Non-lounge Priority Pass options

In addition to the lounges above, Priority Pass partners with two restaurants at LAX — Rock & Brews in Terminal 1 and Point the Way Cafe in Terminal 6, that provide guests with access to a food credit of $28 (not including gratuity). This benefit is especially useful in Terminal 1 where there are no traditional lounges.

Our Favorites

All the lounges at Philadelphia International Airport provide suitable options to relax and get comfortable, but the quality of American Airlines Admirals Club and Los Angeles International Lounge puts them at a class above the rest.

With highly personalized service, exceptional amenities like premium food and drinks, luxurious furniture and layouts, quiet and comfortable environments; these lounges provide you with an oasis of peace that is nothing less than a blessing for a person stuck in huge crowds of the airport. We would definitely recommend you taking a detour to one of these places if you are waiting for your flight, and if you can afford an access.
