United completes part of its new lobby at LAX

United Airlines on Tuesday opened a portion of its new lobby at Los Angeles International Airport, the first customer-facing element completed in the ongoing, more than $500 million renovation of the carrier's Terminals 7 and 8. 

Jeff Riedel, United's managing director for corporate real estate, tweeted this picture.

The project will be fully done by late 2017. According to United, it also includes, a new consolidated security screening area, new gate/hold rooms, a new in-line baggage system and baggage claim area, as well as a new 20,000 square foot United Club with an outdoor terrace. 

Has anyone seen the new lobby? How is it?
