Opened in July 2016, Etihad Airway’s First and Business class lounge features a Modern Arabian style, it’s located airside and overlooks the terminal’s extensive shopping promenade. Inside the lounge you’ll enjoy luxurious seating, a la carte dining, showcase bar, shower facilities, and free wi-fi amongst other luxuries.

Both lounges can be found on level 6 of the Tom Bradley International Terminal.

Virgin has been looking to secure LAX lounge access for their high tier and business class passengers for a number of months, and securing the access to Etihad and Emirate lounges brings to an end the points and vouchers offer that the airline previously offered in lieu of lounge access.

Virgin Australia has also confirmed that they will remain in the Tom Bradley International Terminal despite partner airline Delta making the move to T2&T3.
