United was fast to close down their United Club and Polaris lounge network when the pandemic hit. They have also been much slower to reopen than American and Delta and I’ve seen some reopened United Clubs filled to capacity with a line out the door, due to other clubs in the airport being closed.
United has now reopened most of the clubs in their hub airports and they’re now in the process of reopening the rest of their domestic clubs by September. Here is an “rough timeline” of club reopening dates that United sent me:
United still has no timeline for reopening their Polaris business lounge network.
With American reopening their Flagship lounge network, I’d imagine that United will feel competitive pressure to reopen their Polaris network.
When do you think United will reopen their Polaris lounges?
