United Expecting to Open Three Polaris Lounges this Summer
United is still in the process of building its Polaris lounge network. These lounges are reserved for passengers traveling in United or Star Alliance Business and First Class. Unfortunately, the airline has only opened one Polaris lounge so far, located in Chicago. United has been periodically delaying its next eight planned Polaris lounges.
We might finally have some good news on this front. United’s Polaris lounge tracker has been updated to show that the San Francisco, Newark, and Houston lounges are expected to open in summer 2018, while the Los Angeles lounge is expected to open in fall 2018.
United’s Polaris lounge in Chicago is excellent. I hope United actually follows through and opens these locations as planned. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if these end up being delayed.
