    This “flagship” lounge seems like any Delta Skyclub or United lounge. It doesn’t seem to be offering many advantages. Am I missing something?

    @ WanderingEntrepreneur – It’s not a lounge, it’s a VIP check-in area that also offers access to an expedited security line. Flagship Check-in offers a more concierge like experience than your typical first class check-in counter.

    It also offers more privacy. It’s not uncommon to see celebrities and other high profile travelers using the Flagship Check-in area at LAX.
