Review: United Lounge @ LAX (Los Angeles, CA)

The United Lounge at LAX has been saying that they are currently doing renovations. This is re-assuring because I went there for some pre-flight lounge time recently and the lounge has  a style that looks like it was the hippest thing back in the 90’s. As soon as I walked in, I noticed that the feel of the lounge was off; it felt like I just walked into a corporate cafeteria and recreation room from the early 2000’s (If I knew what one looked like back then). The lounge can be separated into 3 sections. There’s a large lounge seating area in the center. To the one side of that lounge seating area are what seemed like conference tables, and on the other side is the cafeteria-looking bar.

At the very least, it seems like the food selection update has made it to LAX. We have the same hot garden soup I saw in EWR and some appetizers. I’m so glad they got rid of the plastic-wrapped cheese and crackers.
