I'm actually in the Virgin America Loft as I'm writing this. I'm going on my third hour at the lounge. I've actually been pleasantly surprised at how quickly those first two hours went by. The crazy part is the Loft doesn't really have a major lineup of amenities. It's more of a toned downed Admiral's Club just way more stylish and quiet. Though the Loft doesn't have a hot buffet, shower suites, or a spa, it serves its purpose.
The loft at LAX Amenities
The Virgin America Loft might not have the most premium or plentiful amenities but it does come at a fairly reasonable price tag. For $30 you get all day access at the Loft. Anyone in Terminal 3 regardless of carrier or class of service (even if you're flying Spirit in Zone 4) can pay the $30 for access. Children under 12 aren't allowed into the club however, it seemed that the Loft staff weren't really enforcing the guest rule policies. Elevate Gold members and Priority Pass holders have free access while Elevate SIlver members can get Loft access at half price. It's a really great deal for what you get.
If Virgin America charged the industry standard of around $50 per adult, I'd say save the money and spend it elsewhere. The Loft is not worth the fifty dollar price tag however, Virgin's only charging $30 and their guest policy is pretty liberal. The staff is fairly professional however, very-very welcoming. If you've got an hour or two (or four like myself) to kill before your flight, head up to the Virgin America Loft located on the second floor of Terminal 3 in the center rotonda. As I said, the staff is very welcoming and accommodating and for $30 you'll get a fair amount of amenities that will hold you over until flight time.
