Delta offers one-time visit passes to their lounges for $30. That’s the second-cheapest offering out there — Alaska Airlines offers one-time boardroom passes for $25, and boardroom members can purchase transferrable passes for just $15 each.

Now, that may not be worth it for everyone or every time. And more frequent guests are better off with a membership, with elite status with a non-US Skyteam airline, or with the American Express Platinum card — each of which would secure access to the lounge. (And many Crown Room Clubs are also Priority Pass affiliates as well.)

But The Flying Critic makes two interesting points for those transiting Los Angeles not just on Delta but also on airlines like Continental and United.

  • LAX Terminals 5, 6, 7, and 8 are connected … so passengers from several airlines can reasonably access the Delta lounge in Temrinal 5.
  • The Delta Crown Room Club in Terminal 5 at LAX has showers.

Seems like one for the back pocket…
