United's United Club is Giving Their Lounge Food a Slight Upgrade

March 9, 2015 at 10:39 AM | by | ()

United Club, the airline's airport lounge brand, is upgrading and improving their food and beverage. But don't get too excited. Yes, it's better than their former offerings, however, it’s still very much lacking when compared to an international lounge.

Some of the new options include an oatmeal and Greek yogurt bar during the morning along with scones, cereals, and other goodies during breakfast. (Excited yet?) Different soups will make an appearance during the afternoon hours as well as hummus, salami and cheese, and something they’re calling a Mediterranean Salad—think wheat berries, peppers, tomatoes, and black olives. (See? We told you not to get too excited.)

These goodies will all be free for members, but they are thinking about offering up some food-for-sale options later this year.

Everyone in the Club Gettin' Tipsy on New Drink Options

September 13, 2013 at 9:02 AM | by | ()

Your next layover just got a little bit better, as United is bringing some improved adult beverages to their United Club locations across the country. We recognize that sometimes any drink is just as welcome as a good drink, but an improved selection certainly can’t hurt things.

According to the Chicago Business Journal United is most interested in expanding their beer offerings, as they’re looking to get into the microbrew and local scene. In total they will be ordering kegs and bottles from a whole bunch of new breweries, as in total the airline will offer 27 different beer brands to their airline clubs across the United States.

Now Find the 'New Look' United Club at San Diego Airport

August 22, 2013 at 10:10 AM | by | ()

When it comes to travel there’s new hotel smell, new airplane smell, and of course—the scent that started it all—new car smell. If you’re into the fresh and crisp odor of chemicals, paint, and industrial adhesives—we mean that in a good way—look no further than San Diego. The folks over at United have just finished putting the last bits and pieces together on a brand new airline lounge.

Just last week the latest United Club debuted over at Terminal 2 within San Diego International Airport. It’s the third one to offer up United’s new look and take on the airline lounge idea, so expect things to look and feel a little different—in a good way.

United Increases Club Fees, Secures Their Place in the Past

January 4, 2013 at 10:43 AM | by | ()

We've already mentioned the flashy new United Club design the airline just revealed to wow passengers. We should have guessed it would have been only a matter of time that the prices to access it would increase. Somebody has to pay that $50 million bill, right?

The standard membership is now $500, up from $475. If you are a regular frequent flyer and have some status, you will pay a little less. Premier Silver members will pay $475 and Premier Gold members will see even more of a break to $450. The second highest, Premier Platinum, will have to fork out $425 and even the top-tier 1K elites need to pay $400 for the year. The option for a 3 year discounted membership will be discontinued.

Same Snacks, New Chairs: A Peek at the Redesigned United Club

December 26, 2012 at 11:59 AM | by | ()

2013 probably won't be the year of the airline club since that designation really belongs to 2012, but don’t tell the designers and organizers over at United that. After changing the name of their lounges following their merger with Continental, it looks like United is going all in with a little bit of a revamp and renovation to the United Club.

It all starts with one of the clubs over at Chicago-O’Hare, as the airline has released a sneak peek of what things will look like in Terminal 2.

To our eyes, the new design mimics the stylish lounges for long-haul travel, and by that we mean that they’re skipping the domestic carrier coffee-machine-and-a-comfy-chair look. Think a dash of Virgin's panache, but without all the additional features—and food and beverage—that come along with a true international airline lounge experience.
