United’s Polaris Lounge at LAX has still not opened…but it won’t be long.
United’s Polaris Lounge at LAX has been delayed by more than a year. Set to open late in 2017, it has yet to open. In fact, the online Polaris Lounge tracker still predicts an opening of Autumn 2018:
But December is upon us, leaving very little time to meet that deadline.
While at LAX yesterday, I noticed progress is being made. The faux marble entrance is close to completion:
Looking up to the rotunda, it appears the lounge will be larger than the old International First Class Lounge (turned United Club) that previously occupied the space.
I chatted with a couple agents in the United Club prior to my flight and they indicated that the lounge would open before the end of the month.
But when I reached out to United to see if an official date was around the corner, I was told:
We have not announced the LAX Polaris lounge opening yet – it’s soon though.
An update without an update. But since the lounge was supposed to open in “Fall 2018” I thought an update was due. Hopefully it won’t be much longer now…
