Qantas unveils new first lounge

QANTAS has unveiled its brand new luxurious first lounge in Los Angeles LAX airport.

The new spacious and luxurious lounge is based on the multi-award winning Qantas First Lounges in Sydney and Melbourne, providing seating for more than 200 customers and different zones to dine, relax, work and socialise.

Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce said the newest Qantas First Lounge offers what the airline believes is the best on-ground First class experience in North America.


“This new lounge is symbolic of our continued investment in our customers and commitment to the US market. We are the only airline to operate non-stop A380 services between Australia and the United States, we’ve recently introduced the A380 on services between Sydney and Dallas/Fort Worth and opened a new Business Lounge in LA in June,” added Mr Joyce.

“The new lounge is more than triple the size of the previous space, and the design and service is equal to the world’s best five star hotels and restaurants,” said Mr Joyce.

The new Qantas First Lounge offers: An open style kitchen restaurant that seats 74, a 48 foot-long bar for dining and enjoying cocktails, a first class faster WiFi, wireless printing, cable television, two private work suites and seven shower suites.

Qantas ‘Early Bird Part 2’ fares are available to Los Angeles starting at $1303 return from Sydney and Brisbane to Los Angeles and $1304 from Melbourne to Los Angeles, on sale until 23 December for travel in 2015*. *Visit for travel dates.
