    I'm flying out to Hong Kong from Sacramento:
    * SMF-LAX on UA in E+ (paid)
    * LAX-NRT on ANA in F (award)
    * NRT-HKG on ANA in C (award)

    I see that LAX is building a new Int'l terminal, but it's behind schedule so neither it nor the new *A lounge will be open. Given the mixed reviews of the existing *A lounge in the Int'l terminal I ask you, where should I burn 3 hours? It looks like my SMF-LAX flight will land at Terminal 8. My baggage will be checked through from SMF so clearing security *should* be straightforward. Thanks.

    Get a burger and watch planes at In-N-Out, if you're not really thrilled with the LAX lounges.

    I'd say In-N-Out for an hour then back to the crappy lounges at LAX. Living there I usually try to get to the airport as late as possible because the lounges are quite disappointing.

    The IFL at LAX isn't horrible but I would rather get out and move around given the opportunity.
