It's 5 o'clock somewhere.

The funny thing I didn't know that public was allowed behind the counter - finally the lady working the area said it was open bar area!

Took some pictures as well last week and finally am uploading them.

Were those couch cushion fortresses always there or was this some overpaid designers' new idea?

They are actually very comfortable and provide a nice place for people to sleep (which is what I believe they were designed for).

Any specific comments on the liquor selection?

I have a few LAX layovers coming up and was debating a 30 day pass...won't be DM for another couple months.

Perhaps they overlooked the acoustics of a domed interior... the sound bounces around all over the place. But aesthetically, it looks nice.

I wonder if they chose not to have any floor mount outlets due to additional cost concerns running it through.

Despite valid points, it does seem like a nicer place.

Delta LAX lounge - HUGE misses post reno
 
I just landed on a delayed Sydney flight to be welcomed to the newly renovated Delta LAX lounge. Aesthetically, not bad. Functionally - many big misses. It's 10:00 AM and it is already about 80 degrees in here. There is no power at the seats except for a few outlets along the walls and the cubby-hole desks along the window (they did a massive renovation and didn't think to install floor conduits ?) Another miss: no showers available yet. Also, inadequately small menís room (twice I have had to wait in line to use it).

What I find most displeasing about this lounge is that they sell 10K-15K USD tickets in their much touted BusinessElite service to APAC on very nice new 777LR equipment (flight was really good by the way) and you arrive off of a 15 hour flight and find third-rate facilities.

I hope someone at Delta reads this and responds. My goal with this post is to get them to improve this place - otherwise I will certainly go back to Qantas or UA.

Why don't you email this to DL?

there's a big section of the LAX club still under construction... how about waiting until everything is finished before you condemn the place?

really? I thought that it was all finished as of a week or two ago. There's a thread on this somewhere...

edit: somewhere is here... Photos included...

The showers and the rear area behind the desk (where the desk areas were) have yet to be finished.

The lack of power at seats not along the wall is rather disappointing though if this club is the way that future SCs will be modeled - would have loved to see them take a page out of UA's book at their renovated ORD (and reopened MSP) lounges.

Vuelos Jul 28, 10 1:17 pm

To the OP. Looks like you are unhappy. Sorry about that.

I have spent quite a bit of time there and can sympathise with some points but others are off base...

1 - Showers. - Give them time, they are coming
2 - Power Outlets - MAJOR ISSUE. This is something they must address, there are far too few outlets for the space. I have a feeling this will be addressed but am not sure.
3 - Temperature - The times I've been there it's been too cold. I would give them some time to get the AC down to a science. Much larger area than before.

4 - "Third Rate" - Not sure what "first rate" lounges you are seeing. This is heads and shoulders over the vast majority of domestic lounges I've seen/

I was thre yesterday before boarding the 777 to ATL. As always, the staff is very welcoming and helpful. The men's room fix up is great--a clean, fresh look. The seating is very comfortable; there are work-stations with outlets and more to come I understand in the section behind the desk--it will be completed in a week or so. The bar/snack area is sleak and clean--a great design. Showers are being renovated now and will be available.

I think the club is overall--GREAT!

They replaced Woodford Reserve with Canadian Club. It's starting to feel like a Word Club already.
