Who doesn’t want their airport experience to be a little bit more luxe?
Why rough it on the public benches, trying to pretzel yourself into a comfortable position while waiting for your flight when you can be living it up in an exclusive lounge?
Well, at LAX a valid boarding pass can get you into any terminal, allowing you access to some of the world’s best lounges – even if you’re not a member!
