Virgin Atlantic opens its new Clubhouse at Terminal 2, Los Angeles airport

Virgin Atlantic has long been known for its distinctive, if relatively few in number, Clubhouse lounges. The flagship being of course its London Heathrow Clubhouse, with other Clubhouses in San Francisco, New York, Boston and Washington.

One notable absentee has been Los Angeles, in spite of it being one of Virgin Atlantic’s most important routes after New York.

Today Virgin Atlantic has opened a new Clubhouse at Terminal 2. The lounge has been designed by Slade Architecture who also worked on the airline’s Newark and JFK clubhouses.

The Los Angeles clubhouse offers views of the Hollywood Hills. The colour palette is relatively toned down compared to other Virgin lounges.

As per other Virgin Clubhouses the lounge offers complimentary drinks from the bar and a pre-flight dining menu, with the Los Angeles lounge offering dishes from Hinoki & The Bird.

Virgin Atlantic flies to Los Angeles twice daily, with an additional codeshare flight operated by Delta. It is a route with strong competition. Air New Zealand flies to Auckland via Los Angeles daily. American Airlines and British Airways also fly the route twice daily, with American Airlines offering its latest Boeing 777-300 aircraft and British Airways flying its A380 twice daily.
