Admirals club at LAX
gets a great view of some of the gate action at the AA
terminal and TBIT. It is especially great at night with some of the QF
747 departures. The upper level and flight deck of teh 747 are just about window level with you at the admirals club which is a floor above the main terminal area, very impressive to see the top of a 747 and to be able to be so close to it, I could watch the pilots pre-flight the aircraft one night waiting for my red-eye to IAD
The old Admirals club in concourse E of MIA
had good ramp action views and taxi way views and even good views of some of the landings and depatures on runway 9/27 or 12/30. But that was closed I think now it is the first class lounger for IB
? Also enjoyed the views there, I feel it was similar to the views a ramp control tower would have.
