The Los Angeles Business Lounge for international airlines Qantas, Cathay Pacific and British Airways at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) has established a new standard in luxury travel with a setting inspired by California and the host airlines’ unique premium offerings.
Located in LAX’s recently completed Tom Bradley International Terminal, the Business Lounge is a centerpiece of Qantas’ plans to quadruple its presence at the airport. Its design takes advantage of a large central atrium to provide customers with a broad choice of amenities and ambience enhanced with daylight and views. When completed in early 2015, the lounge will seat 600 travelers.
Choice and comfort are defining elements of the Business Lounge. Customers can dine on the sun-filled interior ‘deck’ overlooking the atrium, join others around the fireplace in the den, or relax privately in a classic Eames lounge chair. Dining is centered around a more active ‘street’ where customers can enjoy menus influenced by Los Angeles’ multicultural cuisines, including dishes served from food carts inspired by the city’s street food culture. A full-service cocktail bar and shower suites complete the current offering. Upon completion of the lounge in early 2015, it will include a formal dining experience, workstations, a family zone and additional shower suites.
An elegant backdrop of light and dark wood, stone and textiles and a locally inspired polished plaster ‘ribbon’ wall weaving through the space, tie the varied settings into a singular experience. Color accents and contemporary furnishings, including iconic pieces designed in Los Angeles, enhance the connection to the region.
