Now open on the arrivals level of the airport is a dedicated premium check-in facility for Delta One transcontinental or international business class customers and for all Delta 360 elite customers. Before checking in you can take advantage of premium snacks and drinks and upscale bathrooms. You’ll even be offered a hot or cold towel during check-in.
Once you’re checked in, there’s a private security line for Delta One passengers with PreCheck and non Pre-Check options available.
I have experienced that a small handful of times, including at the ANA lounge in Fukuoka, Japan, and at Lufthansa’s First Class Terminal in Frankfurt. It’s always a very cool experience and it’s awesome that Delta was able to arrange that for their premium passengers in LAX!
Tel Aviv’s Fattal Terminal offers that, but only if you pony up the $500 cost to use their security and lounge facilities.
And after that, the elevator takes you directly to Delta’s new SkyClub, which has expanded its footprint indoors and on the outdoor terrace.
Complimentary kosher meals are available upon request.
In August, an airside walking connection to the TBIT terminal will open and early next year, Delta will open a business class lounge at the airport. Until then, the business class lounge advantage at the airport still goes to American and United.
Delta also plans to open a business class lounge in JFK next year.
LAX is the only airport in the world that is a hub for American, Delta, and United. Isn’t it grand what a little competition can do?
