I'm Premier Gold with the new United and my fiancee and I are headed to Thailand on Air China. We fly LAX-PEK-HKT-PEK-SFO-DEN and are so excited about it!
My question: we have 3-4 hours to kill at LAX before our LAX-PEK flight so which lounge can/should we use? I assume that because we have an international ticket with a *A carrier, we can use the UA Red Carpet Club, but could we use a different airlines' lounge? Does Air China have a lounge and, if so, is it worth checking out?
Any help you could provide would really be appreciated. You can shoot me a personal message or post on here if you like.

Definitely prefer the NZ lounge over the AC lounge at T-2 - it's much larger, more stylish and has much more extensive food and beverage offerings (AC had 1 broken coffee machine the last time I was there)

Thanks everyone - we'll definitely use the Air New Zealand lounge. On my trip to New Zealand a few years back I used the ANZ lounge in Auckland and was blown away! Awesome food, great wine/drink selection, courteous staff, nice showers, and they were even giving out free massages from a local Vietnamese company.
I won't expect all of that from their lounge at LAX but still, I'm sure it's nice. ANZ simply exudes quality.

Star Alliance announced a couple of days ago that they're building a new lounge at the LAX Bradley terminal. It's scheduled to open in May 2013.The project is being led by NZ which is moving from T2 to the Bradley terminal in 2014. It will serve the 8 Star Alliance carriers using the Bradley terminal.
