Air France has pulled out all the stops at its brand-new exclusive lounge in the Tom Brady terminal at the famous Los Angeles Airport (LAX) in the United States (US). 

The new lounge was officially opened on June 21, 2024, with Air France’s La Première, Business and Flying Blue Elite Plus and KLM and SkyTeam partner airlines customers free to enjoy the swanky facilities. 

Spread over nearly 12,000 sq. feet, the lounge sits close to the boarding gates for Air France flights and can accommodate 172 passengers. 

“The entire space is an invitation to discover the company’s universe, featuring its signature colors – shades of blue, luminous whites and touches of red – giving a sleek, chic design,” Air France said in a statement.

Some of the furniture has been created by renowned French designers including the Ester chairs by Patrick Jouin, the Ribbon armchairs by Pierre Paulin, and the coffee table by Charlotte Perriand. 

French cuisine, as you might expect, is at the heart of the lounge with Monkfish Provencale, Beef Bourguignon and braised chicken among the culinary delights prepared by the in-house chef. 

Dishes such as pan-fried prawns or cassoulet with duck confit can also be made on request in the open kitchen. 

There is also a wide selection of French wines and champagnes, spirits, and local beers, as well as cocktails and mocktails prepared by a bartender.

This new lounge features a spa treatment area by Clarins, which has been an Air France partner for nearly 20 years.   

Air France customers can find their Zen in two cozy cabins, offering a choice of three free facial treatments: ‘anti jetlag’, ‘instant detox’ and ‘illuminating eye-care’.   

Passengers traveling in Air France’s La Première cabin also have access to a private hideaway dedicated to just them.

Designed in a similar way to the La Première suites, the private area offers a “comfortable, chic and made-to-measure layout” for up to 12 guests with its own dining area. 

Flying Blue Ultimate customers also have access to an area entirely reserved for them with large armchairs for extra comfort during their wait.  

In addition, there is another area dedicated to relaxation and rest for passengers particularly in need of switching off from the world and a closed-off cabin for making calls.

As standard for most contemporary lounges there is free Wi-Fi and numerous electric and USB sockets near the seats. 

And perhaps the most welcome luxury for some passengers are the showers which are available to use throughout the day.  

Over the summer, Air France will be operating 26 flights a week between Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) and LAX including 21 operated with Boeing 777-300ER aircraft equipped with La Première suites.
