General areas

The lounge is pretty large, considering the low volume of eligible passengers. However, the low ceiling takes away some luxurious “feel”.

My main complaint is the lack of high-privacy seats or nap pods in the lounge. There are a couple of private rooms with 4 seat each, but I’m not sure if they are available to non-VVIP passengers.

Bottom line

Qantas First Lounge Los Angeles LAX Airport isn’t as impressive as some of the top First Class lounges in the world, but it is still a great space to be in for some quiet time and good food, before your flight out of Los Angeles.
