I was flying Business Class with Air France from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG). At LAX, I was able to enter the Oneworld alliance lounge. While Air France is not part of oneworld, they contract with oneworld lounge for Air France premium cabin passengers while they are building their own lounge at LAX.

Air France is part of SkyTeam; however, the SkyTeam lounge, operated as Korean Air Lounge at LAX, is underwhelming, and therefore, I recommend you go to oneworld Business Class lounge instead.

    Location

    Oneworld Business Class Lounge is on level 5 at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), the same location as the Star Alliance Lounge. The easiest way to find the oneworld lounge is to turn to your right after clearing security and locate the P.F. Chang restaurant. Take the escalator or the elevator to the upper level 5; you can easily find the oneworld lounge from there. The oneworld lounge is one level below the Star Alliance Lounge

    It takes around 15-20 minutes on foot from the oneworld lounge to the Air France departure gates, so be sure to give yourself enough time. There's also an airport courtesy mover if needed.  

    Oneworld Lounge Access

    All oneworld premium class passengers can access the lounge. 

    Air France is part of the SkyTeam alliance, not the oneworld alliance. However, because Air France is currently building their own lounge at LAX, and the SkyTeam lounge (Korean Air Lounge) is not that great, Air France also contracts with the oneworld lounge for premium class passengers for the time being. Therefore, if you are flying in a premium cabin with Air France, such as Business Class, you can enter the oneworld lounge complementarily. 

    There's also a nice new Delta Air Lines Lounge at Terminal 3, but you must take a shuttle to get there and back because Air France leaves from Terminal B, the Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT). 

    Seats

    The oneworld lounge is built and designed as a triangle shape lounge. So it's quite big, and there are plenty of seats at every angle, including the dining areas.

    Lounge Seats

    All oneworld premium class passengers can access the lounge, including Air France premium class passengers, so the lounge is expected to be crowded occasionally. 

    I specifically like the seats around the fireplace area because it's in a bigger area and is more quiet compared to the buffet area. The fireplace is fake, though ;)

    Buffet Area

    There's only one buffet station inside the oneworld lounge. The options are good, but the quality falls short. I was there during lunchtime, and the hot food and soup, including the salad bar, were not tasty as I hoped for. The dessert was also just mediocre.

    Drinks

    There's a full bar where you can order cocktails and beers. They also put wines and sparkling wines on the bar counter for self-service.

    Bathroom

    The bathroom inside the oneworld lounge is okay. The toilet doors are not fully enclosed.

    Shower Rooms

    There are quite a few shower rooms inside the oneworld lounge. There's a shower attendant by the shower room area to make a reservation and help with any shower-related matters.

    Children Room

    There's also a children's room for little ones inside the oneworld lounge at LAX. 

    Wi-Fi

    Wi-Fi is free, and no password is required within the lounge. You could just connect to the oneworld lounge, and the speed is good. 

    Conclusion

    Air France is building their own lounge at LAX's Tom Bradley International Airport Terminal B, and the SkyTeam Lounge is not that good. Hence, Air France contracts with the oneworld lounge for premium cabin passengers, such as Business Class. The oneworld lounge is good, but I've seen better. 

    The oneworld lounge is large in a triangle shape with many seats available at every angle, but the food is mediocre. I still appreciate that Air France has an agreement with oneworld lounge while building their own lounge at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
