Recently, one of our customers tweeted, "@United can you make all your lounges in the U.S. like the one at LHR please? #heathrow"

Well, that customer's wish is about to come true.

We're upgrading more of our United Club locations worldwide with the same modern look-and-feel as our newly renovated clubs in London, Chicago, San Francisco, San Diego, Seattle, Boston and Atlanta. By the end of 2018, we'll fully renovate club locations in our U.S. hubs and key international cities with our new design and comfortable seating, additional work stations and abundant power outlets, and we'll refresh clubs at other destinations around the world. In addition, all of our smaller locations will receive a refresh of new carpeting, furniture and paint. To get a first look at the improvements, take a virtual tour of one of our newly renovated clubs at Chicago's O'Hare airport located at Terminal B18.

Plus, through a partnership with Sodexo, our premium customer experience partner at all United airport lounge locations, we'll team with hospitality leaders to offer a high-end experience: Celebrity chef Art Smith will contribute to menu planning and design, renowned mixologist Adam Seger will oversee upgraded spirits programs and bartender training, and Disney Institute will provide world-class hospitality training and support for all Sodexo employees working in United Club locations. Sodexo currently provides services at more than 30 locations, including our award-winning London Heathrow United Club and Global First Lounge, which have quickly grown to be customer favorites.

So, to that Twitter follower and to all our other customers who've told us they love our new lounges, thanks for the feedback — we heard you. Look forward to relaxing and recharging in our new clubs soon.

Now as the entire shipping and logistics industry bands together to widely distribute vaccines, United is leveraging all of its flights, including cargo-only and those carrying passengers, to transport millions of vaccines to destinations throughout our network, including Honolulu, Guam and Saipan – the first of any carrier to do so.
