With a panic upgrade to Norwegian Premium Economy on my flight from LAX to London came lounge access and the opportunity for this LAX Tom Bradley International Terminal OneWorld Lounge Review. How does it rank with the other lounges I have checked out from around the globe? Let’s find out.
As noted in my review of Norwegian Airlines Premium Economy, the LAX OneWorld lounge access was an added bonus. In reality, it played a big role in me bidding on the flight upgrade. Who doesn’t like “free“ preflight cocktails? At the very least it gave me an excuse for this LAX Tom Bradley International Terminal OneWorld Lounge Review.
You. Are. Welcome 🙂
The OneWorld Lounge is located on level 5 (one floor up from security) in the Tom Bradley International Terminal. Also (and oddly) known as Terminal B, the Tom Bradley International Terminal is the only terminal at LAX with a name and no number to identify it. Named after Los Angele’s first African American mayor, this terminal services most of LAX’s major international routes including those flying the massive Airbus A380.
I had just over an hour to kill for this LAX Tom Bradley International Terminal OneWorld Lounge Review. There was no problem filling that time. There are several lounge areas as well as dedicated workspaces which I quickly sat down at to send out a few emails.
The lounge forms a square around an open-air art piece. This allows for plenty of natural light, making it a great place to relax. That relaxation is made even better with a West Coast Pale Ale before take off.
There is also a comfortable firepit area with plenty of (empty) seats…possibly because there was no fire going…or that it is California.
Food and Drink
The LAX Tom Bradley International Terminal OneWorld Lounge has a large bar with a surprisingly large collection of California wines and craft beers. You are not limited to water-downed big brand names here.
The food in the lounge was better than average with hot meals managed by Australian partner Qantas Airlines. On my visit, I enjoyed a chicken curry with a side salad with an above-average salad bar. Nothing mind-blowing but good enough for seconds.
How to get in
Access to this OneWorld lounge is reserved to those lucky enough to be flying Business Class or better on a OneWorld partner airline. If you have achieved Sapphire or Emerald frequent flier tiers then you also have access to the OneWorld lounges. Entrance by a fee is not offered at this lounge.
