Skift Take

This kind of branded lounge allows Star Alliance to be a part of the much-anticipated new LAX terminal while keeping operating costs low for airlines. It is a model the alliance plans to use again in airports across Asia.

Star Alliance‘s brand new lounge at Los Angeles’ Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT) is set to open at the end of this month with a media launch planned for September 23rd, reports Australian Business Traveller.

The lounge opening will come only a few days after the new terminal opens on Wednesday, September 18.

The lounge will be managed by Air New Zealand, which is one of eight Star Alliance airlines at the LA hub. It is open to business class and Star Alliance Gold flyers with a special section reserved for first class passengers.

The lounge is separated into social areas for drinks at the bar or doing work in the library. There is also an impressive outdoor patio overlooking the Hollywood hills.

Star Alliance describes the lounge, which was designed by global architectural firm Gensler, as a contemporary interpretation of modernist L.A. architecture of the 1950s and 1960s.
