Bad news for the new American Express Centurion Lounge at Los Angeles International Airport (Tom Bradley Terminal) as the lounge has just been shut down until further notice.
According to American Express Platinum Concierge there are extensive repairs required at the facility that will take several months to take care of.
This is indeed sad news for those travelers who were looking forward to use the Centurion out of LAX where it’s located in the Tom Bradley Terminal for international departures.
It’s unclear what caused the lounge to suddenly close it’s doors but considering we’re talking about “several months of repairs” as per the Amex Concierge there must have been substantial damage or a fault that was caused during the installation which was quite recently.
The Centurion® Lounge at Los Angeles International Airport is temporarily closed due to building repairs. We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to welcoming our premium Card Members back soon.
The TBIT can be accessed via intra-terminal connector from other LAX terminals as well but it’s quite a hike as the airport is a monster.
American Express card members have a range of other lounge options when departing from LAX such as
- Delta Skyclub for Amex Platinum/Centurion card holder when flying Delta, guests at additional charge
- KAL Lounge (TBIT, via Priority Pass)
- Alaska Lounge (T6, via Priority Pass)
- Virgin Clubhouse (T2, via Priority Pass)
Since there is no timeline when the Centurion lounge will open again it might be best to consider this ahead of time and make other arrangements.
The Centurion Lounge at Los Angeles International Airport is temporarily closed due to building repairs which might take several months, Amex representatives speak of the facility reopening “later this year” whatever that means.
No details have been given what caused these alleged repairs or why they would take several months to complete. Maybe it’s all just an excuse to keep it closed?
