Delta Air Lines is ramping up for the big travel rebound, unveiling its glamorous, Hollywood-inspired lounge – Delta Sky Club at LAX – almost 18 months ahead of schedule.

Part of the airline’s ambitious $2.3 billion Delta Sky Way development at Los Angeles International Airport, the 30,000-square-feet club is among the largest in the Delta network.

Australian travellers hoping to make their way into its plush surroundings can do it right now.

Although its Virgin Australia partnership comes to an end in June, Delta remains committed to the trans Pacific route. It recently unveiled plans to boost its daily A350 Sydney to Los Angeles service, featuring the Delta One Suite, to 10 flights a week by the year's end.

Inspired by the city, its coastline, and the golden age of Hollywood, the Delta Sky Club at LAX offers multiple seating options, time saving additions including virtual queuing, and a rotating food and beverage program that shines a light on local produce and restaurant talent.

The lounge is entered via a downstairs lobby set underneath a wave-inspired installation.

The jewel of the Club is its Sky Deck, a year-round, all-weather terrace where guests can enjoy premium drinks and panoramic views of downtown Los Angeles and the Hollywood Hills.

Claude Roussel, Managing Director – Delta Sky Club, says the lounge has been in the works for five years, with the design team carefully considering every aspect, from varied seating options to the food and beverage, to create a premium “one-of-a-kind experience”.

“Whether guests visit the new Delta Sky Club to dine, work or simply enjoy the views, they'll find much to love in this world-class lounge for a world-class airport,” Roussel elaborates.

Multiple nooks are also dotted throughout, including a Coffee Grotto, which echoes Hollywood's Golden Age with an exquisite mosaic mural featuring glass tiles imported from Italy.

Club restrooms have also been adjusted for greater comfort and privacy, with a nursing room, oversized family restrooms, and eight showers managed via a virtual queuing system.

LAX Sky Way is a $2.3 billion joint project between Delta and Los Angeles World Airports. Due for completion in 2023, it will include centralised check-in, security and baggage claim, linking Terminals 2, 3 and Tom Bradley International to create what’s promised as a seamless passenger experience.

Looks fantastic. Was really looking forward to experiencing this space ... just as Virgin Aus ditches Delta for United 🙈 

It was such a treat to be at the launch party and get a sneak peak on Tuesday. It is really great space, especially considering it is an American mainstream lounge and not specific to DL One. I know I'll be spending all my time out on the Sky Deck. I'm hoping that DL will expand it's reach within Australia and New Zealand either on its own metal, or through a new partnership. It's a real loss for DL fliers who travel Australia/NZ unless its only Sydney. Would love to see ET do a story on the future of DL in this space.
