Traveling with infants or children is often not only stressful in the air, but on the ground. But one lounge at LAX stands out as the superior choice for parents or guardians traveling with young children.
The oneworld lounge in the Tom Bradley International Terminal has a dedicated area for children. Unless I missed them, that’s more than any other lounge at the airport. The nearby Star Alliance and Korean Air (SkyTeam) lounges certainly do not have any. Nor do the Etihad, Emirates, or the Los Angeles International Lounge.
Sometimes we arrive at the airport early or have long layovers between flights. When traveling with children, how nice it is for a designated room to run around and play in. You’ll find the room adjacent to the main dining room hidden behind a curtain. It is large, leaving plenty of room for children to run around in.
My son kept himself busy for 90 minutes here. That’s impressive for a two-year-old with a limited attention span. We had the room to ourselves for the first hour and were joined by two other toddlers for the final half hour. It gave little Augustine a chance to practice the virtue of sharing (note to self: he needs more practice).
I was quite appreciative for this room and family-friendly amenity. For those worried about noise, it’s a perfect place to cordon off children in…the rest of the lounge remained tranquil.
