On Monday, Etihad Airways announced the launch of a new First and Business Class Lounge at the Tom Bradley International Terminal in Los Angeles International Airport.
The new lounge is the third in the United States for Etihad Airways, with the other two found in Washington, D.C. and New York City. The facilities were designed and built for passengers using the company’s daily EY170 Boeing 777 services.
The lounge features Arabian design elements and patterns found in the traditional and modern architecture of Abu Dhabi. The facility's perks include appointed seating, a dining area, a full-service bar, a television area, shower facilities, high-speed Wi-Fi, electrical and USB power outlets and much more.
An additional VIP area is also available to the most valuable customers, but the lounge will only be open to passengers who are Etihad First Class and Business Class guests, Etihad Guest Platinum, Gold and Silver members flying on EY170 and Etihad Airways Partner airlines' equivalent Platinum and Gold members.
“As a world-leading airline, Etihad Airways continues to redefine travel, setting new benchmarks for innovative service on the ground and in the air,” Etihad Airways senior vice president Martin Drew said in a statement. “Our new First and Business Class Lounge in Los Angeles demonstrates our unwavering commitment to travelers on the U.S. West Coast, and in the United States as a whole, by providing them with the intuitive hospitality they have come to expect from our people and our brand. It gives us great pleasure to inaugurate this facility.”
