American Express announced it will open its newest Centurion Lounge, this one at Los Angeles International Airport, on March 9, 2020.

The new lounge, which covers 14,000 square feet (1,300 square meters), is located in the Tom Bradley International Terminal and is accessible also from Terminals 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 without having to traverse a security checkpoint for a second time.  The lounge offers complimentary admittance to holder of American Express Centurion, Platinum, and Delta Reserve cards.

A new feature being introduced at this lounge is a choice of Sunrise and Moonrise tranquility rooms. The two offer brightly and dimly lit quiet spaces, in which one can awaken or relax, respectively. The lounge’s spa will offer a variety of treatments including light therapy, Reiki treatments, and massages.

Visitors to the lounge will have access to a variety of presentations depending on time of day, a bar, shower suites, restrooms, and high-speed Wi-Fi.  The lounge features floor-to-ceiling windows allowing views of the tarmac and the city’s skyline. It also has family rooms that are intended to give parents a respite while their children are otherwise occupied.

The presentations, which will be designed by a chef from Southern California, Nancy Silverton, will include a variety of entrees including asparagus egg pie, panettone French Toast, Farro Salad with fresh herbs and feta, mozza meatballs, roasted beets with horseradish vinaigrette, and butterscotch budino

Other lounges in the pipeline include one at London’s Heathrow Airport in the first half of 2020 and what will be the world’s largest Centurion Lounge, a two-story affair in Terminal 4 at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport.  With the addition of the JFK lounge, New York will be the only city in the world with two Centurion Lounges.
