Los Angeles is home to many stylish, exclusive nightclubs that draw some of the hippest crowds.
But the city’s airport does not have such a cool reputation. In fact, a survey of 1,500 fliers last month ranked LAX as one of the nation’s three most stressful airports.
That may be changing.
California-based Virgin America last week opened at Los Angeles International Airport a new passenger lounge, dubbed the Virgin America Loft. It is bathed in purple and red mood lighting and furnished with upholstered, wheel-shaped seats, flat-screen televisions and cozy couches built for two.
In addition to high-end snacks, the lounge offers guests a menu of aviation-themed drinks, including Lofty Lemonade, Jet Stream Spritzer, Runway Ruddy Mary and Mile-High Margarita.
