Wouldn't be surprised if the VX after party at LAX had an impact on the hours reduction there..

As is SEA D. So at SEA, there is a net increase in the lounge availability: there will now be at least one lounge open 4:30 AM - midnight daily (from 5:00 AM - midnight daily).

When I went in on Wednesday, I heard that the Alaska folks didn't get out of there until after 2AM... OUCH! I know we (organizers) left at 1215AM-ish to kinda send a sign that it was time to go (not sure people heard on the PA, nor with the staff tearing down the food/bar).

But we heard about the new hours before our party, I guess AS/VX doesn't have many departures after 11PM, so it sorta made sense. But still, when there's an IRROP, its nice to hang out in the lounge.

So basically, the "Full House" sign will be out a half-hour earlier

I am disappointed in ANC curtailing its hours, especially on the eve of the summer flight bank.

We do have a flight that departs at 2:30 AM or so :yawn: to SEA, plus several others. And I liked using the lounge upon arrival in ANC from the late night SEA-ANC flights to freshen up, grab a snack and diet coke.

SEA at least is extending its hours...

And no mimosas until 5am thanks to OLCC rules. Interestingly alcohol service between 5am and 7am is only allowed in certain airports to ticketed passengers with same day boarding passes.

LAX is really nice to see, there have been numerous times I've shown up at 4:50am to a long line of people waiting to get some pancakes.

The last departures from LAX are all at 11.55p (SEA, ANC, PDX and for some crazy reason an SFO), but they all board so early, this isn't a huge deal. IMO. I take the LAXANC redye every few months and they often start boarding at 11.10 or earlier.

The temporarily reduced LAX hours are also due to renovations.

Kinda stinking it in the eye of AA travelers with access on the five (at least) late night flights that depart from the far end of D.
