Hello from 30,000 feet where I am currently flying to Dallas. I am currently sorting, editing and posting as fast as I can, please excuse the jet lag 😉
After my flight from Sydney I was connecting onto an American Airlines flight to Dallas, and as a Oneworld Emerald and Qantas fan, there was one lounge I have wanted to try for quite some time. The Qantas First Class Lounge.
I used the T4 connector and arrived at the entrance of the lounge.
The lounge is open to on any international Oneworld first class flight and or then connecting onto a domestic flight; the lounge can also be used by any Oneworld Emerald member travelling domestically on American Airlines (Excluding American Airlines Executive Platinums)
The lounge has the recognisable frosted doors which are the norm for Qantas first lounges.
As I was travelling on Halloween, I thought there maybe some decoration around the airport and It was quite cool to see the lounge have some decoration.
At the entry to the lounge, they offered some candy which was a nice touch.
As you walk in you can see the frosted doors which are reserved for Chairmans Lounge and Concierge Key members and other VIP Oneworld members.
The lounge has coffee machines and various snacks at the self-serve area.
The lounge also offers printing and scanner facilities.
What pleasently surprised me was how quiet the lounge was, there would have been about 30 people maximum which is impressive considering it can fit 200 + people.
The lounge is spread out well and has a heap of comfortable seating areas.
The marble bar is a great place to have a quiet drink and chat to fellow travellers.
As is the norm with Qantas first lounges they offer a sit-down dining area and all the food is designed by Qantas celebrity chef Neil Perry. The waiter hands out the menus as you sit down. Sadly I didn’t get a photo of the menu but the big breakfast is pictured below.
The Qantas first lounge in Los Angeles has to be one of if not the best lounge in the U.S, I always enjoy my time in Qantas’s lounges and cannot wait to see the new one (London) which opens March 2017.
