Impressive new First Class BA / oneworld lounge opens in Los Angeles

Back in June I shared some pictures of the very impressive new Qantas business class lounge which had opened in Los Angeles International Airport.  This is the new lounge for Qantas, BA, airberlin, Iberia, Japan Airlines and LAN.  It is not used by American or US Airways as they use different parts of the airport.

The business class lounge was only part of the story.  A huge new First Class / Gold card lounge was also under construction, designed to seat 200 people.  This has just opened.

According to the Qantas website, it offers:

  • 74-seat restaurant and bar
  • Open-style kitchen
  • Californian Knoll furniture selected by Marc Newson
  • Neil Perry Rockpool-designed a la carte menu
  • Private work suites and complimentary Wi-Fi
  • Seven shower suites featuring Aurora Spa ASPAR products

At three times the size of the old First Class lounge, it is a massive improvement for British Airways flyers out of Los Angeles.  You will be able to access the lounge if you have a British Airways Executive Club Gold card or are flying First Class on a BA service.

    Though it is sorely lacking in power points

    • When did you ever visit a lounge or hotel room and think ‘wow, this place has too many power points?’. I type this in a hotel and had the same issue last night!

  2. I guess it’s pretty good to keep the partners happy, ( based on yesterday’s BA 1st Class topic which took a bit of a hammering.)

    any one got pics of the ba 1st lounge in bermuda

  4. Metatone says:

    LA 1st matters to BA for PR – there are still some celebrities who use that service.

  5. I think it is worth pointing out that unlike the JCL lounge which is a oneworld lounge operated by Qantas the FCL lounge is actually a Qantas lounge open to oneworld partners. So BA actually deserves zero credit for this lounge other than making the sensible decision to agree that QF should be the airline to have it and operate it!
