Behold Alton Brown's Luxurious Floor Seat at LAX United Lounge

Alton Brown’s frustrating moment on the floor of LAX has become United’s discomfort.

The television personality who rose to fame with the delightfully clever “Good Eats” was traveling in Los Angeles recently when he found his way to United Airlines’ lounge.

As USA Today Travel spots, Brown tweeted out an image of the posh confines. Unfortunately for the 52-year-old, those confines were the floor of said lounge rather than the seat he presumed came with the price of admission.

Here is the tweet Brown sent out to his over one million followers:

That’s the face of a man not entirely amused by the current state of affairs of his respective trip.

Now traveling is expensive. However, you assume that certain things will come in tandem with your precious dollar. For those of us flying coach, we assume there will be seats and, you know, a plane.

For those who want more comfort while waiting for their flight, they might pay for the luxury of airline lounge service, which presumably comes with chairs.

United, possibly a bit embarrassed that a celebrity would show off its carpet oasis, tweeted back to Brown:

As USA Today and Brown echo, there was a shortage of seats because the number of available lounges was down to one at LAX:

United offered to take this discussion outside to a more private discourse:

Perhaps it worked, because that seems to be the end of a brief Twitter discussion between celeb and massive airline company.

There is, however, word from United thank to The airline explained to the publication with the following: “We reached out to Mr. Brown to explain that his experience was caused by current renovation work at the United Club at LAX. We hope to welcome him to the new Club in the future.”

For the rest of us who have ever had to sit on the floor because those chairs in the terminal were taken, know that sometimes these things happen to celebrities.

Only, it takes a major airport overhaul for it to take place. Still, it does happen.
