Star Alliance lounge at LAX features outdoor seating, fire pits

Last week, we were first to report that some premium customers at the new LAX Tom Bradley International Terminal will have access to a special outdoor lounge, complete with a bar, lounge chairs and fire pits.

It took a week, but we finally secured renderings of the space, which will be used by first and business class customers, as well as some elite frequent fliers, flying on most Star Alliance airlines. It should open later this summer, when a key piece of the new building is finally opened.

The airlines using the lounge are: All Nippon Airways, Asiana Airlines, EVA Air, Lufthansa, Singapore Airlines, SWISS, THAI and Turkish Airlines and Air New Zealand.

Will you be using this lounge? What do you think of it? Do you think airlines cater too much to premium customers?

    Premium fliers should get perks. They keep the airlines going with their repeat business and the majority of the time they are paying business or first class fares. For many airlines the difference between profit and loss is one passenger per flight.
