United Airlines is refreshing its airport lounge network and bringing innovation in an area that has long been lacking — dining. You can now order food from Giordano’s from the comfort of your armchair in United’s newly-renovated lounge near B18 in Chicago O’Hare.
United has spruced up its Club food offerings already, with genuinely tasty soups and salads as well as improved food and drink, like illy coffee. Still, customers asked for more hearty meals and in least at one lounge in United’s Chicago hub, that option is now available in the form of pizza…good pizza I might add (I’ve enjoyed Giordano’s for years). Not just pizza, but “nosh” (another word for “food”) including mini-pretzel sticks and mini sausage skewers, as well as sandwiches and salad.
To order food, simply scan your boarding pass, order, pay by credit card, and take a timer — the food will be brought to you.
Sure, I’d rather see all food complimentary, but this is a good compromise — the food in United Clubs has improved dramatically and I view this as merely a helpful additional option.
It’s nice to be able to order pizza, but even the complimentary items like soup and salad are enough for a decent light meal
