The Amex lounge is a total disaster, there is a thread on it in the Amex forum. Unless its literally your only option and you really really want to visit a lounge for some reason, Id skip it. Youll get more, and better tasting food on your HNL flight, and that speaks volumes about the Amex lounge.

Was here during late afternoon last week. Noodle bar was set up when I arrived. It was ok I suppose, mostly in the way that it was different than the typical lounge fare.

Empanadas came out shortly afterwards. Thought those were really good, one of the best items that I've had at a domestic lounge buffet (including the PLs) in a long while.

I went to the LAX UC for the first time several weeks ago, and maybe I'm insane, but this might be my favorite UC. It felt huge and not crowded at all, which is a refreshing change. The outdoor deck and the seating area immediately off in the corner inside are amazing. I've been to the new EWR one several times this summer, and even though it's the flashiest, newest, and objectively the best UC, I've struggled to simply find an open seat there.

OP.. Old news! Things are improving, check out the appropriate CL thread
However the UA club is quite nice. You also have access to the TBIT * alliance lounge if your *Gold.. You may want to enter TSA in TBIT if not checking luggage

You will not have access to the UC or any *A lounge based on Class of Service at LAX.

*A class of service rules only care about the immediate flight leaving that airport (in this case LAX-HNL) which does not provide access. UA class of service rules require the international segment to be on UA metal to give access to the overall itinerary.

If you make *G before that flight and/or have a UC membership, then you can visit either the UC, AC MLL or *A lounge in TBIT.

I do frequently and I dont see anything improving there at all. If a club is a must, paying to enter the UC is a better idea by far.

Frequently, when was your last visit to a CL? Some people have different expectations! I agree the UC at LAX T7 is fantastic, so is the star gold lounge in TBIT. I think the CL lounge in TBIT is a good alternative as well. All depends on your access. Life is good

Access to UA club? AC Business LAX->YVR

I fly air canada business class LAX to YVR. Should I have access to the UA club at LAX -- that is, should this count as *A boarding pass international premium travel and gain access?

If so, does the UA club have an outdoor terrace? Any tips on getting there -- I look for an airside bridge or tunnel from T6 to T7? thanks in advance!

Yes to access. (Also yes to access AC MLL in T6, if of interest.)

Yes to outdoor terrace. It is all the way at the far side of the club from the entrance escalators.

For finding the club, there is an airside walkway from T6 to T7 just next to TSA (left if you've just come through TSA, right if you're walking from terminal), and the club is right at the base of T7 at the end of the walkway. You could also just go through TSA at T7 if you prefer; I think not much difference in terms of time.

thanks. This is so helpful. I think Im more interested in the ua club because I think the ac mll doesnt have outdoor space (though I could be wrong). Anyway, thanks!

Correct, no outdoor space at MLL. It is also small and so can be a little crowded sometimes. Enjoy your visit to the UC.

So I infer from this that my AC boarding pass, and the fact that I am not checking anything, would mean that I can get dropped off at T7 and go through there?

Now that I look at the map, that might be a huge plus, as I think the drive to T6 in the crazy current traffic is a lot longer (there is a shortcut from T1 to T7).

Is there still a TSA-pre line in T7? (That's my recollection from last year, now that I think of it).

Yes to all. You can go through TSA at any terminal with any boarding pass for that day (at that airport). If being dropped off, the shortcut to T7 is usually worth using even if going to T6 (just walk back curbside).
