"In fact, the dining vibe of the LAX lounge will be very 'California cuisine' elaborates Roger Barstow, one of the Rockpool Group chefs working with Perry and Qantas on the dining at its international lounges."

Great... we're going to get fed kale, on a bed of kale.

as long as they can change the dreadful, never-changing dishes at oneworld lounge that they are currently offering, anything is good.

You are allowed 1 guest, so no , you are not all entitled to access

Maybe not based on status. But if his wife is traveling in business, they are each entitled to one guest based on class of travel, right?

Only 1st class passengers are entitled to a guest. A business class passenger is not entitled to any guests, so no, there is not entitlement to access for all 4

EP member can enter with 1 guest
Business class passenger can enter on their own
total number 3

OK, I was basing my understanding on this:

Eligible Class of Travel

International Business

Next onward flight that day must be a Qantas flight.

One guest allowed and must be travelling with the member on the same flight.

I was going by http://www.oneworld.com/ffp/lounge-access

It does seem that Qantas is allowing access beyond the OW entitlement , so would be fine

Don't Admirals Club access agreements still allow Club members (albeit with one guest) in Qantas Clubs when flying onward on QF? <link>

From http://www.aa.com/i18n/travelInforma...ations.jsp#LAX

For Qantas lounge

Admirals Club member and one guest. Must present your Admirals Club membership card (or 30 Day Membership receipt) and boarding pass at check-in counter for same day travel on Qantas-operated flight.

I'd settle for a lounge with windows - the current Oneworld F lounge has none - and showers that have any type of ventilation. My current strategy is usually to stay in the Flagship Lounge for as long as possible and shower before transitioning over to the Oneworld lounge because it's so crowded and claustrophobic in the evenings.

Some photos of the soon-to-be-gone One World F lounge at LAX:



Some more photos start HERE. I walked out last month about 90 mins before my A380 flight to SYD because the noise level was driving me crazy. Hopefully the new lounge spreads passengers over more terrain and has better noise-reducing qualities.
