Apparently the tipping problem in LAX TBIT is back
Something dfcatch may want to bring up with management.
My brother was in their this morning. As he went for a shower the attendant picked up $2 that was left behind in the room. He then watched the attendant leave and take it to another room and put it in there ready to be picked up when the next person came in.
My brother even noted it was a scam saying "it would be the first thing they pick up when they clean the room, not left till the next person came in"
Sad as this was addressed i thought but its obviously coming back.
All serves to detract from the first class experience unfortunately.
Yeh. Its a real shame this keeps happening despite responses from QF that it has been fixed and that tipping isn't required or permitted.
But unfortunately as its an external party it has come back.
Was in the FL this morning.
I had no problem with entry using a LAX-PHX BP and my WP card.
Did have a shower and while I was escorted to the room but saw no $$.
Different set of showers in FL isn't there. It also could be down to individual attendants who are after tips.
When I was at the LAX QF biz lounge recently the staff were clearly putting "tips" in the bathroom expecting a tip to be left for them. I understand that the staff are probably not paid a lot - but if this lounge is a little bit of Australia in LA - with a lot of Australian passengers passing through my preference would be that the staff are appropriately paid (so that tips are not expected but given because it's good service. I can't say that the service that I have received in this lounge has been exceptional.
While we all have our own views on tipping, the QF lounges in LAX are unlikely to become known for changing the tipping culture in the USA.
Those who choose to tip are free to do so. Those who don't, won't. I wouldn't worry too much about the tipping culture.
