Qantas will move its Los Angeles-Brisbane service to the newly-renovated Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT) from May 1 to bring all LAX departures under the one roof.
“Qantas is streamlining the customer experience and consolidating all departures to Tom Bradley International Terminal” a Qantas spokesperson confirmed to Australian Business Traveller.
The change lets Brisbane-bound travellers enjoy the airline’s new Los Angeles Business Lounge, along with the first class lounge due to open later in the year.
Although the Brisbane-Los Angeles QF15 flight unloads at TBIT, theQF16 return leg currently departs from Terminal 4.
This sees Brisbane-bound passengers with lounge access consigned to the decidedly average American Airlines Admirals Club in Terminal 4 – a serious gripe of many frequent flyers from the Sunshine State.
Qantas journeys from New York to Brisbane will also become much more relaxing as the terminal transfer bus becomes a thing of the past.
Passengers arriving into LAX on QF108 from New York will be able to step straight off the flight and maximise their lounge time in TBIT before continuing to Brisbane, just as their Sydney and Melbourne counterparts already do.
