Qantas Unveils Luxury LAX Business Lounge

8th May 2015

In an effort to improve their guest's experience at their Los Angeles lounge, Qantas has decided to increase its capacity by as much as three times.

To wrap up the final stage of the LAX Business Lounge expansion, Qantas, along with its Oneworld partners British Airways and Cathay Pacific from Hong Kong have the LA-based musician Ben Lee. Lee was also born in Australia.

This follows the first stage of the lounge opening in June last year, as well as the opening of the Marc Newson-designed Qantas First Lounge from December same year.

Qantas LAX Business Lounge was designed by Woods Bagot, one of the premier architecture and consulting firms in Australia.

Opening the new multi-million dollar lounge renovation will be Qantas regional manager for America Vanessa Hudson.

Speaking about this she said:

"The completion of this project represents our significant investment in the U.S. market. We have tripled the space available across both lounges, added more seating and installed a state-of-the-art kitchen. The new kitchen enables us to offer a bigger menu and a greater variety of dining options."

"Customers tell us that being able to enjoy a relaxing and welcoming space with high quality dining options prior to flying is top of their wish list when it comes to creating the ideal lounge experience."

Introducing Qantas LAX Business Lounge

With the expansion, Qantas Los Angeles Business Lounge will be bigger by an extra 200 seats. This will make the total capacity of the lounge to 600 seats.

The lounge includes a large dining area where guests can enjoy tasty dishes made by Qantas-own Chef Neil Perry. There is also a wide variety of choices when it comes to cuisine, including local hot dogs, Mexican, Italian and Korean food.

Those who wish to relax can do so by large communal fireplace and a central glass atrium. If someone wants to take a shower, they can do so in one of the seven available shower suites.

Finally, moms and dads can play with their kids in the family-dedicated zone, which is equipped with children's toys, games and furniture.

Qantas offers an economy fare service to Los Angeles from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane from $1,249 until 18 May.
