LAX Confirms New American Express Centurion Lounge Between Terminals 6 & 7

American Express has been building its own network of lounges in US airports, accessible free to Platinum and Centurion cardholders and guests and at a fee to other American Express cardmembers.

The lounges feature complimentary food from a celebrity chef, beverages, and they’re smartly-designed spaces. Dallas and Miami even have complimentary spas. The only drawback is that the lounges, being quite good, can get crowded.

Last week I speculated that an American Express Centurion lounge was coming to LAX. Following up with American Express I got something of a non-denial denial (“Nothing official,” emphasis mine).

Well, the airport is confirming it. In fact, per Brian Sumers, it’s in the airport’s October “Terminal Operations Center” newsletter.

As Brian explains, placing the lounge between terminals 6 and 7 would make it “accessible to passengers flying United, Delta, American and Alaska. Soon, after a construction project finishes, passengers in the Tom Bradley International Terminal will also be able to reach the lounge.”

There are American Express Centurion lounges at US airports already in:

The next lounge that will open is Houston.

It looks like we can add LAX to the Centurion lounge pipeline.

  1. I wonder when it will be ready, too. But I think it is a great idea for a location. With so many UA international flights leaving from Terminal 7, having something like the lounges in the international terminal as an alternative to the UA clubs should get them a lot of customers.

  2. How would this be accessible to “passengers flying . . . Alaska?” Isn’t Alaska in Terminal 3?

  3. Awesome!! Had just pointed at to a friend when we were in the International terminal that it seemed weird that there were Centurion Club Advertisements in the terminal

  4. Alaska is in Terminal 6. It better be one big ass lounge. There are plenty of people who will have access to that in this town, so I hope they’re not surprised when the demand is huge.

  5. Been to the MIA lounge four times, the DFW once. Always slammed except the one time at 10pm. Count me unimpressed. Sure it’s a nice salad, but it doesn’t make the card worth it.
