Air France Opens New Lounge in Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)

Air France has opened its largest lounge outside of Paris at the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). This new lounge spans 11,500 square feet (1,068 square meters) and is located in the (West Concourse) Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT). The lounge is open daily from 09:00 to 23:30 (11:30 pm) and has a capacity for around 172 customers.

Access

This lounge is open to Air France’s La Première, Business, Flying Blue Elite Plus customers, and eligible KLM and SkyTeam partner airlines customers.

Dining and Bar

The dining features aspects of French cuisine, with styles from Parisian brasseries and hot and cold options to satisfy lounge customers. Some of the items include beef bourguignon, braised chicken, sweet and savory options, and vegetarian options. In an effort to offer a more sustainable environment, they have removed single-use plastics and work to prioritize local and seasonable ingredients.

The full-service bar serves cocktails, mocktails, French wines, champagnes, local beers, and other beverages.

Amenities and Spa

The lounge was designed using the airline's colors: shades of blue and white and touches of red. The chic design brings in French style with chairs, tables, and other lounge features.

The lounge will feature a spa that will be opening later this year. The spa will offer treatments using the Clarins brand. Some of the services include facials and other related services. Once the spa opens, you can book appointments at the reservation desk upon entering the lounge.

For La Première members, there is a dedicated area specialty for those customers. This area has its own private dining room and seating areas for these select customers.

The reception area is equipped with accessible kiosks for easier access. The lounge also offers free Wi-Fi and provides numerous electric plugs, including USB, near all seats. There are also showers and digital magazines available on the Air France app.

Air France LAX Operations

Air France currently operates 26 flights a week between Paris-Charles de Gaulle (CDG) and Los Angeles International Airport, including 21 operated with Boeing 777-300(ER) aircraft equipped with La Première suites. There are also fie flights a week connecting Los Angeles (LAX) airport to Papeete (PPT) in Tahiti.

Closing Thoughts

There are six Air France lounges in the United States (BOS, IAH, IAD, LAX, JFK, and SFO). While this lounge looks lovely, many other lounges in Terminal B will give this a run for its money, including the Delta Sky Club, Star Alliance Lounge, and oneworld Lounge.
