This week Virgin Atlantic revealed more photos of it’s brand new $2.5 million Clubhouse at Los Angeles International Airport Terminal 2.
Here’s a closer look at the fun space that seems to us like a cross between a lounge and a colorful kiddie playroom. What do you think? Please leave your comments below.

Virgin says, “Los Angeles is a key route for us and we’re always thinking about what our customers need when they’re flying transatlantic. The investment in LAX will also include a refreshed check in area as well as the introduction of a meet-and-greet chauffeur drop-off service. Furthermore our brand new 787’s will be on the route from May, and together with the increased connectivity as part of our joint venture with Delta, we’re able to offer our customers the best possible experience when flying between London and Los Angeles.”
Entry into the Clubhouse is complimentary for Upper Class passengers travelling between Los Angeles and London Heathrow. Return Upper Class fares start from $5265.00 per person including tax.

Nice pictures, but they remind me of a cookbook that I plan to write some day. Instead of photos of the completed recipe, it will have photos of what your kitchen looks like after you make the recipe so you know how much of a mess you have to clean up.
Same with these lounge photos. They are staged and phony. Every airport lounge I’ve visited has been wall-to-wall chaos with herds of boorish passengers crowding around the food stations and trying to find a place to sit while yapping at 110 decibels on their mobile phones. I generally skip airport lounges nowadays and just find an empty part of the terminal to camp out in until my plane boards.
I think airport lounges should have quiet work carrels and servers who bring you drinks and snacks. The first-class lounge at the Berlin train station is sort of like this, and it’s magnificent.
