Ranging from retail, dining and lounge, you can feel like a celeb. How? Here are the 5 ways…

 

1. Relax and Refresh in the lounge

 

If you are an economy passenger and looking for the best way to relax and refresh, then you can buy a day pass and get access to the airline lounge. The lounge offers a place to relax and light refreshment with a mesmerizing view. If you are a business-class or a first class passenger, you can even enjoy a mouth-watering popular culinary dishes and a hot shower.

2. Become a Member of The Private Suite

 

If you are looking for an unforgettable VIP travel experience, you can have a chance to become a member of ‘The Private Suite.’ Normal steps from car seat to plane seat is 2,200 footsteps, but once you become a member, you can complete it in just 70 footsteps. The team of Private suite team handles luggage and ticketing, whereas the private TSA screening is accomplished in the building. The Private Suite members can spend their pre-flight in private suites that have their own pantry, own bathroom, a runaway view of aircraft taking off and landing and two-person day bed. At the time of boarding, the members are driven in a BMW 7-series sedan across the tarmac to the aircraft.

 

3. Enjoy treats including wine, chocolates, steak and caviar

 

You will get a plethora of options to enjoy international dining options in LAX terminals. SeaLegs wine bar in Terminal 2 offers a bottle of wine or champagne, Terminal 7 serves B petite filet mignon at B Grill by BOA Steakhouse and in Tom Bradley International Terminal you can enjoy wine filled chocolates along with sample caviar at Petrossian Caviar & Champagne bar.
