This Review of the Oneworld Business Class Lounge at LAX TBIT is my husband's, prior to his Finnair Business Class flight.
Oneworld Business Class Lounge LAX Location, Hours, and Access
The Oneworld Business Class Lounge LAX is located airside in the Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT). Once past security, proceed to the large atrium and take the escalator to the 5th floor, where the lounge entrance is. Note that Terminals 4-8 are connected airside to TBIT, so follow directions through the tunnels and bridges.
The Oneworld Business Class Lounge LAX is open daily from 6:30am-11:30pm.
The following passengers have lounge access:
- Business and First Class passengers flying on a oneworld airline
- oneworld Sapphire Tier elite members
- oneworld Emerald Tier elite members
- Norwegian premium cabin passengers
Note that American Airlines Oneworld Sapphire and Emerald elites do NOT have lounge access if traveling on a domestic U.S. flight or on flights to Canada, Mexico (except Mexico City), the Bahamas, Bermuda, Caribbean.
Oneworld Business Class Lounge LAX Amenities
The Oneworld Lounge is huge, with seating for hundreds of passengers, and surrounds a square atrium. Because of that, the space is broken up very nicely into many different seating areas. Here's some of the seating near the entry:
There was also bar-style seating at a long communal table:
These loungers were some of the more comfortable seats, and the closest to day beds, although you'd need a sleep mask to get any rest given the light from the windows overlooking the atrium.
There were a variety of English language newspapers: U.S., U.K., and Australian (Qantas operates the lounge, and many Qantas passengers use the lounge prior to flights to Australia, between Australian-LAX and LAX-JFK flights).
There's a business center with computer work stations:
There was a kid's area, but it seemed rather sad, with the same ugly carpeting and cheap, ugly furniture– except now the furniture was kid-sized. There was a big screen tv showing kids' movies, and some building blocks in a corner, but little else.
A good aspect of the lounge were the individual shower rooms, with rain shower heads and Aspar bath products:
Oneworld Business Class Lounge LAX Menu and Food
Here's the dinner menu for my visit:
The bar was well stocked:
There were a number of chilled white wines on offer:
Of the reds, I chose a Cabernet Sauvignon, which was passable, but not more than that.
I had the Korean beef over rice, with bok choy, as well as ratatouille pasta, which wasn't great, but I was so hungry I ate it all anyway.
For dessert, the sea salt caramel cheesecake was decidedly mediocre.
The Oneworld Business Class Lounge at LAX TBIT is large, with many seating areas, and in a fairly interesting space. While the design is not bad, it seems low budget. The food was similarly mediocre. The highlights of the lounge were the ability to take a shower, and the friendly staff.
