I am sitting in the LAX Alaska Airlines Lounge and I have to say that it is great for the whole family. We are returning from a 6-week trip through Asia and both of the other lounges we visited were not at all kid friendly. I have a Priority Pass through my American Express Platinum and there are only 3 lounges available at LAX this early. With the pass this was the only one airside for departure on Terminal 4 (American Airlines). If you are coming from Terminal 4 it is a bit of a hike but there are carts that can give you a lift if you need.
I love this Alaska Airlines Lounge – it’s bright and sunny, has a nice little kids room with movies, a cute bar and a decent selection of breakfast foods. My daughter sat at the little table in the kids room and went crazy for the homemade pancakes. There is a great little machine where you can watch your pancakes being made – then top them with chocolate sauce and bananas as we did. She picked a movie and I did some blogging while she really enjoyed herself.
The Alaska Airlines Lounge has excellent customer service with a smile and they open at 5am! If you are coming through LAX and will be on terminals 4-6, make the trek over to the Alaska Airlines Lounge – your kids will love it and so will you!
