LAX: Los Angeles American Airlines Flagship Lounge T4
Read the full story here: AA lounge refurnishment.
Are you really sure you want to visit the American Airlines Flagship Lounge Los Angeles? It's a bit grim, old, and in dire need of a refurbishment.
You enter via the Admirals Club, where at the downstairs reception desk the agent will give you a key card that unlocks the small sliding door beside the customer service desk upstairs. The agents there greet you again and double check your credentials. Then you have arrive the First Class haven. Which is all pretty poor, with much better alternatives.
The American Airlines Flagship Lounge Los Angeles should be just for First Class passengers, and elite frequent fliers, but it doesn't look like it. It is rather like a dire Debenhams café.
There are floor-to-ceiling windows with great views over the tarmac, curved ceilings, and light wood panelling. There are banks of seats at the windows, and inland the buffet. Enforcing the cheap seaside café feel is the small half-height separator - you almost feel like there should be a till at the end.
There is a good open seat arrangement , and a few work cubicles, along with dining tables near the buffet.
There is also a relaxation area with seats equipped with Bose noise-reducing headsets playing CDs. These really need replacement.
FoodFor a First Class lounge the food is dire in the LAX Flagship Lounge.
The American Airlines Flagship Lounge Los Angeles dining area has a full cooked breakfast in the morning, then from 11am lunch with a couple of hot meals. However the quality of the food is pretty poor. The scrambled eggs and beans are as cheap and can be. The bacon is OK. At night, the food tends to vanish early on, leaving you just with salad and cheese.
BarThe one saving grace of the American Airlines Flagship Lounge Los Angeles is the bar.
It is good, and free pour, with bottles of spirits left on the counter. The wine could be better. There are cans of Heineken in the Fridge.
BathroomsThere are spacious shower suites, and bathrooms at the end of the hall.
Business FacilitiesComputers at the end of main area.
AccessAmerican Airlines First Class passengers departing on an international flight, or on a three-class nonstop transcontinental flight. Or oneworld Emerald, only.
