LAX / Los Angeles Int'l. Airport Terminal 4 Gate 40 and Terminal 5 Admirals Clubs

T-4 Refurbishment began June 2016, to end May the end of year 2017. T-5 is now open.

Link to LAX information on aa.com.

Link to LAX web site.

LOCATION: LAX / Los Angeles International Airport Terminal 4 Gate 40 Admirals Club is in "Concourse level across from gate 40.." (aa.com) Entry on concourse level, lift / elevator to next floor; tarmac views; assistance with AA travel-related issues; some "quieter" areas.

Renovation in progress; Club reduced capacity, First Class Lounge open in temporary space (old business and quieter area of Club). Flagship Dining to be added. Reopening expected ~May October end of year 2017.

HOURS: See here for hours. (Although, it has been reported that the Club may indeed be opening earlier than the website-posted time).

AMENITIES
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi
  • PCs with Internet access
  • Food for purchase
  • Showers (8)
  • Music Room (?)
  • Children's Room
  • Conference Rooms
Note: The Flagship Lounge is located upstairs within the Admirals Club and requires key card access - Club receptionists issue these, and the entrance to the Flagship Lounge is immediately to the left of the upstairs Club staff / assistance desks. See this thread.


You can now travel between the American Airlines T-4 and several other terminals without leaving Security via a pedestrian tunnel.

The airside connector between T-4 and the Tom Bradley International Terminal is open.

A shuttle bus from ground level by Gate 44 connects to the Remote (American Eagle) terminal, with its own Club.
  • For LAX Flagship Lounge, please refer to this thread)

  • For the "Eagle's Nest" Admirals Club in the remote American Eagle terminal see here.

  • For the Tom Bradley International Terminal oneworld Lounge, see here.
Useful tip: If you are headed to baggage claim at LAX, and you arrive at one of the higher-numbered gates (45-49), you can make it a little easier on yourself by going down the escalator to the shuttle bus terminal. Then turn left and go down another escalator to the walkway to baggage claim. This long walkway under the main concourse has a moving sidewalk. It's the same distance, but with a bit of mechanical help. There is "Baggage Claim" signage leading to those escalators.

LAX lounge question.

So, there are "admirals club" and "flagship lounge" at LAX T4. I believe these are two separate lounges for different classes of passenger (Flagship is reserved for international or JFK flight first class)... My question is, will "Admirals Club" have shower available? I have a pass to Admiral Club, and I would like to take a shower before hopping on my SFO-LAX-BOS redeye.

If there are showers in admirals club, how many are there? How much time should I allow for connection time in case all showers are taken..?

LAX AC does have showers. Not sure on the number of showers. I would expect that demand for the showers is lower in evening as most of the long hauls have come/gone, but I will let others confirm/deny from their personal experiences.

I think 4 or 6 stalls in AC. (edit) I will be there on Wednesday afternoon and will count the number in Flagship and Admirals.

Do they still have food out late at night for the QF pax or has that arrangement ended?

Yes. A couple of weeks ago, I cleared T4 PreCheck security with a UA BP.

Since you are EXP and apparently flying a US redeye, I would recommend SDC to an AA metal flight.
F seats on those US planes are painfully uncomfortable on any flight more than an hour or so.

The Alaska Board Room in T6 is far superior to the AA Admirals Club, and your AC membership gets you in when flying AA/US. It closes at 10pm, though.

There are tunnels that let you walk between T4 and T6, airside.

Flying in to T4 and then have a Qantas flight where I will be in business class. I have a 4 hour layover and if possible would like to split time between lounges. Will I have access to the flagship lounge as an Emerald in Qantas business?

Yes, by virtue of your Emerald status.

Matter of opinion I suppose, but I would only agree that the AS BR is better in food offerings. In terms of views, facilities like showers, and amenities like computers, the AC wins, hands down. The BR also can get really crowded to a density I've never seen in the AC.
