Los Angeles International (LAX) – KAL Lounge Review


We recently had an opportunity to visit the Korean Airlines (KAL) lounge at Los Angeles International Airport. You get access to this lounge with Lounge Club or Priority pass membership.

Lounge Club Membership is complimentary with Chase Ritz-Carlton Rewards Credit card ($395 Annual fee) and Priority pass Select membership is complimentary with Citi Prestige credit card. ($350-$450 Annual fee)

 

This Lounge is located after you cross the security check point at Tom Bradley International terminal at LAX. You make a left after the security check to find elevators leading to KAL lounge located on the fifth floor.

Right after you pass this artificial waterfall (created as a part of the LAX make over), you need to make a left turn to KAL Lounge.

Lounge is divided in to business class  and first class. You get access to the first class lounge only with a first class boarding pass.

There is also a bar on the other side of the lounge where you can get alcoholic beverages.

First Class Lounge: If you are flying First Class, you get access to the First Class portion of the lounge – which has a separate entrance.

There is no direct view of the tarmac from this lounge, but you get a view of the duty free shopping area.

Conclusion:

We had an opportunity to visit KAL Lounge in LAX. You get access to this lounge with Lounge Club or Priority pass membership apart from flying in premium class with KAL or other sky team members.

This is not an ideal lounge as the service needs a little more attention and Wi-Fi is not so great. But, if you want to hop on for a quick shower or have a quick snack, it may be a handy pit stop.
