Priority Pass Lounge Review: Alaska Lounge LAX Airport


This post may contain affiliate links from our advertising partners, such as American Express. Read my Advertiser Disclosure policy here.

The Alaska Lounge at LAX is located in Terminal 6 on the mezzanine level, near gate 64. It’s open daily from 5:00 am – midnight and is part of the Priority Pass network of lounges, meaning Priority Pass cardholders can use this if you’re not an Alaska Lounge member.

The great thing about Terminal 6 is its connected airside to Terminal 7, 5, 4, and the TBIT through underground tunnels, meaning there’s no need to reeler security if flying out of one of those terminals.

The lounge has several snack items such as pretzels and cookies.

However what really makes the Alaska lounges is the self-serve pancake machine.

The lounge isn’t that big and on this Friday afternoon it was quite busy.

How To Get Access:

You can gain access to Priority Pass Select, which will get you lounge access here for free by being a cardholder of The Platinum Card® from American Express or The Business Platinum Card® from American Express OPEN or by being and Alaska Lounge member.

This lounge has a rustic feel to it, but if you’re looking for some self-serve pancakes you won’t find them at any of the other LAX airport lounges!

  1. Two points, first this is an old tired lounge short on space, real short. PP will not get you in during many hours of the day due to over crowding, like many Boardrooms around the country that are aging and undersized. SO their first cut are PP cardholders which as I understand has lead to over crowding at many airline clubrooms.

    I witnessed this Monday at PDX, when I walked in the sign was set outside not allowing PP members due to over crowding, 20 minutes later they opened the clubroom and almost instantly had a line, then they had to shut it down again due to the PP people. Did not really believe this but having seen it first hand.

    But at the end of the day the LAX BR is aging and furniture is long in the tooth as well

  2. This is one of the worst lounges that I occasionally have to visit. And the one in Seattle isn’t any much better.

  3. I have only been able to use this lounge once, been denied 5 times for overcrowding. Food is pretty solid though!

  4. I’m shocked at the shade for this lounge. I love this lounge. It’s the only domestic lounge at LAX where you can get good craft brews on draft for free (even the pay beers at the UA and AA lounges are pretty dismal).

    Also, the free salad is pretty decent (I don’t think free salad is even offered at UA, AA, or VX).

    True, it’s not as spacious as some of the other lounges, though in terms of decor, I prefer it to VX and consider it on par with AA.

    I’d much rather be stuck here in the case of IROPS than at UA or AA (except for the Flagship lounge, of course!). It’s too bad it’s having problems with overcrowding.

  5. I was not able to get in this past Monday morning – the evil sign was out!. Since I had time, I walked over the TBIT and gained access to the KAL club (even though this Priority Pass site says this does not open until noon – I got in about 830am). KAL club is huge, with many more food options. And, it was empty. Love the porch overlooking one of the most amazing terminals in North America (once you are through security).
