The Los Angeles Star Alliance Lounge meets the changing needs of today’s traveler and introduces a unique local flavor reflective of the international community in Los Angeles. The Los Angeles lounge is inspired by a contemporary interpretation of modernist L.A. architecture of the 1950s and 1960s and incorporates defined spaces to suit passenger needs ranging from social gatherings around the bar to quiet areas throughout the lounge.
