LAX opens new United Polaris business class lounge by United Airlines

United Airlines has opened its United Polaris business class lounge at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in the US.

The new lounge, which imitates the distinct culture of Southern California, is located in Terminal 7 between Gates 73 and 75A and offers a host of food and beverages to member-passengers. The lounge is United’s most recent investment at LAX since completing the $573 million renovation of Terminal 7 in 2017.

Janet Lamkin, United Airlines California president, said: “Los Angeles is one of United’s most important gateways, particularly to Asia and Australia, and this lounge provides our customers with a best-in-class experience before they board their flights, especially for those customers with late-night departures and early-morning arrivals.

“We continue to expand our presence in Los Angeles, connecting customers from all over California and the US to our global network. The addition of the United Polaris lounge is yet another way we provide customers with the best possible travel experience at LAX.”

United Polaris lounge at LAX is spread across 12,000 square metres, featuring 140 seats. It also features shower suites with rainfall shower-heads as well as private day-beds fitted with Saks Fifth Avenue bedding.

The new lounge joins other United Polaris lounges located at Chicago O’Hare Airport, George Bush Intercontinental in Houston, Newark Liberty Airport and San Francisco Airport.
