We checked in to the Star Alliance Lounge in Los Angeles Airport while travelling through Los Angeles with SWISS. We also checked out the First Class lounge which is attached to the Business Class Lounge. You can read more about that here.
The LAX Star Alliance Business Class Lounge is a very large, with multiple zones throughout the lounge. The lounge is obviously very popular being the main lounge for Star Alliance passengers flying out to Europe, so whilst the lounge felt busy and with a lot going on, the large size and different sections meant it certainly didn't feel crowded.
The seating in the lounge includes dining and lounging options along with a section that overlooks the terminal below.
The prime spot in the lounge however is the outdoor terrace. Featuring fire pits and views over the tarmac, the terrace allows you to get some fresh air and a chance to enjoy one last LA sunset before taking off.
The lounge has a large help your self buffet to dine from and an impressive wine wall.
The lounge has a fully stocked and staffed bar as well as self serve stations throughout the lounge.
Access to the Star Alliance Lounge in Los Angeles Airport is available to:
Business & First Class passengers departing on a Star Alliance flight
Star Alliance Gold Members travelling on a Star Alliance airline in any class
